Yes, Another New Gimmick Club!


Recommended Posts

I love "gimmick" clubs. I've read that the Alien Wedge is the world's best selling club of all time. I also know that "The Hammer" infomercial is the Worlds Greatest Infomercial of all time... okay maybe that's just my opinion. 

So, I was so excited to see another new "gimmick" club. This one makes all wedges obsolete. The All New Dune Wedge! 

My chipping has actually been pretty good this year in an otherwise not so great season in terms of my over-all play. 

I don't think I need one of these, even if it does work as advertised. But I do enjoy a good revolutionary club that makes other clubs obsolete.

I am amused at how he thinks we actually believe he is swinging this thing for the very first time in the video. Why don't they give it to a hacker who just finished his hot dog at the men's grille and see what his results are?

I like how the spokesman is trying to sound like he’s a skeptic. This stuff will have no end. But sure is entertaining.

Yeah, I know. 20-30 years ago he may have fooled us. Now that we know even reality shows are scripted, it's hard to fool us with that kind of thing anymore.

That's what I love most about it. 
That and the Volkeys and Clevelands will soon be obsolete bit in the ad. I love when they claim that kind of thing. Because this is SOOOO REVOLUTIONARY!!!! ... Hmm.. it's a high lofted chipper. 

 

Anyway, I love gimmick clubs and love watching their advertisements. I don't buy them, but I'm always entertained.

It’s a chipper. I love how these guys talk/write like they’re reinventing the wheel.

But a chipper with 56° of loft. You can’t find one of those!!!! 
 

It actually reminds me of Bantam Golf’s E-Club type II Jigger from the late 1990s. The infomercial for this must be great.

Oh no it isn't.  Most of the chippers are double sided clubs 🤣

High lofted chipper and they think it is the greatest thing since sliced bread.  Will admit one thing though, these clubs are easy to use if you can't manipulate the existing clubs in your bag.  But they are all completely one dimensional in that you cannot open or close it use more or less loft or bounce

I gotta be honest....I LOVE my Cleveland smart sole C utility wedge!  It's been awesome!  I hit from lies close to the green to 150 yards out when I need a line drive under a tree... I love it!

Don't know much about this one though.  The commercial is stupid though..

I’m not even sure that’s true. I’ve run the gimmick trail in the past and was fully capable of making a mess of what they claimed would be a ‘fix.’ I’ve shanked the F5 no hosel wedge. I can see skulling this wedge with no problem.

So can I. You still have to make a golf shot in order to get decent results. To me, it's just another low quality club that can be duplicated easily with existing clubs in the bag.

Don't forget it has a big fat alignment line on it. ... Nobody has EVER thought of that before.

I am amazed at how naïve I used to be even as a sole bread-winner, father or 4 in my mid 30's. The internet has changed the world. There is no going back...

I am surprised that NASA wasn't involved somehow.

I was waiting to see him try it out of a bunker. A bunch of guys in my league think nothing of trying to putt out of most bunkers  because they have no idea how to hit a sand shot with a wedge and either leave it in or blade it out. A high lofted hybrid/chipper could be just what the doctor ordered ;-).

For a good lie in a bunker, possibly you can use this miracle club.  For any other lie, how are you going to get under the ball.  Imagine a fried egg situation.  This is why I dislike these gimmick clubs.

    • DAY 6: practiced tempo with Orange Whip Trainer (10 min).
    • I’ll join this foursome - my timing is flexible and this will allow me to drive back east after the lesson on Saturday. Will join you for dinner on Friday as well. My wife / sometime caddy might also join. Thanks for arranging @StuM!
    • Why did the employer require a test that’s not even recommended by the CDC? Not really ball busting but this is part of a problem we’re facing way too often as physicians. Employers, schools, all making up their own protocols without knowing what they’re talking about. I get your ‘wanting to know’ but know what? Like you said, it’s just a number that means nothing at this time. It’s also possible that insurance wouldn’t cover it as it’s not medically necessary.
    • Lab Corp has a "Semi-Quantitative" test that I'm considering taking.  I'm a leukemia survivor, had a bone marrow transplant, I have GVHD, and I'm on immune suppression medication (tacrolimus, sirolimus, prednisone).  Some of my Dr.'s patients in the same situation as me got no response from the vaccine I took the qualitative test and I have antibodies, but I have no idea how protected I am.  I recently got the Moderna booster. The Lab Corp Semi-Quantitative test gives no indication of what is a good response.  It's just a number.  I don't see the point of taking the test if there is no way to interpret the number.  Still I want to take it, I can at least compare it to the number my neighbor got (his employer required the test).
    • I’m surprised you held onto them for 20 years. They would have ended up lost of in the trash long ago if mine.
