Which is the best Rescue Club?

6 posts in this topic

I'm relatively new to the game but getting better (slowly). I recently borrowed a rescue wood from a friend and really enjoyed hitting it so figured i'd go out and buy one. (he has the TM Burner graphite stiff shaft)

Here's the question- which is the best/most forgiving rescue wood out there?

Due to excellent reviews I have been looking at the Cleveland Halo (22degree loft) which is also my budget option (as it's quite cheap since the hi-bore came out), or the Taylormade Rescue Burner (22 degree loft) as my option to match the rest of my bag (as i have an R7 425 and RAC HT irons).

Any views on these clubs or others that are better?

I have the Taylor 25 degree and really like it. Easy to swing with solid contact. Tried the Halo and did not like it even though I had a Cleveland driver. It seemed a bit awkward for me. Swing did not feel right and I could never get that solid hit feel..

I've played both and I personally wasn't a huge fan of the Halo...I just didn't ever hit a shot that I thought was just great, but my friend has one and loves his...on the other hand I loved the burner hybrid. It's depends more on what you think than anything though, opinions tend to vary between different golfers. I would recommend demoing them at a golf store or at a course so see which you prefer before you buy one. Especially since the burner is about twice the price of a halo.

I have the HALO's in 2i and 4i and love them, just swing it like a regular iron and your set, good off the tee too, 2i goes about 220m ... by the way does anyone know how to set up the whats in my bag signature with the brand pics, they are cool.

I was thinking of demoing them but nowhere seems to stock the Halo as it's now the Hi-bore (i think). As you say they're half the price so i could get two different lofts instead of the burner - but should i? Or should i just go for one burner- is there a difference in performance/forgiveness?

having looked at this a little more i am now thinking of going for the Cobra Baffler DWS-08. Slightly cheaper than the Burner but more than the Halo's. Luckily i have a registered fitter near-by so i'm going to get myself down there. Have never been fitted for a club before so i'm expecting big results!! :)

    • Even if his equipment contract with Nike was still valid (which it isn't because of Nike's withdrawal from the equipment business), it still wouldn't be illegal. He'd just have to either have Nike work some magic and put the swoosh on the gear he wanted (it was rumored for a long time that Bridgestone actually made the balls for Nike tour pros) or pay some sort of fine specified in the contract. That said, Nike definitely wouldn't be happy if he broke the terms of the contract, but he is safe to play whatever equipment he chooses so long as it's TM now, since he chose to sign with them after Nike stopped producing equipment. I wonder what the terms of the contracts looked like and whether Nike had to buy out the remaining equipment contracts for their tour professionals like Rory and Tiger.
    • The are by Definition, Immovable Obstructions. It needs a declaration by the Committee to make them an IPC From England Golf: 4. Immovable Obstructions (Rule 24–2) include:
      a) All artificially surfaced roads and paths on the course, including those covered with wood chips. All other paths and tracks are integral parts of the course.
      b) White lined areas adjoining any immovable obstruction are part of the obstruction and not ground under repair.
      c) Stone-filled drainage ditches or channels.
      d) Sleepers, steps or wooden boards within bunkers.
    • Played a round at Pebble Beach and Muirfield Village on the simulator last weekend.  Low winds and gimme on the green.  Shot +2 and +1.  Even assuming I add on another 14 to 16 strokes, am happy to have played bogey golf on those courses.  Was beaming the rest of the day post that
    • He played Nike gear right up until they announced they were getting out of the golf equipment business.  The other equipment mentioned was from when he was an amateur and when he turned pro before Nike made clubs. His first equipment deal was with Titleist, but there was some lag time between turning pro until Titleist made him clubs to play.
    • Matsuyama, Spieth and DJ all winning in consecutive weeks is creating a lot of drama heading into the Masters, not to mention Justin Thomas emerging as a contender with his terrific play.  Already three wins for Thomas in the wrap-around 2017 season! You have to consider those four the big favourites....though there's also McIlroy going for the career grand slam, Day looking to contend again (though this could be a 'lost to swing changes' kind of year for him), Fowler looking to break through with a major, plus old standbys like Mickelson or Westwood likely to be buzzing around the leaderboard again.  Maybe we'll see Langer turn some heads again, or Couples once again be in the mix heading into the weekend. In short, this is promising to be a terrific Masters, even if/when Tiger has to WD again.
