I don't use them, but I carry my bag.

I'm getting a set for when I travel - don't want my new forged irons dinging themselves up. But I can't see using them on the course.

My current 962bs are a tiny bit dinged (cast clubs), but my 680s are going to be a tad softer I guess. So... maybe but unlikely.

I don't use them, but I carry my bag.

Small hand towels/washcloths - $.99 at Bed Bath & Beyond attached with rubber bands, also helps protect the shafts and hozels much better than regular iron covers. While traveling that is.

I starting using them after I got my forged Mizunos to the right amount of "banged-upness" as I like to call it. They don't look too new, but from now on they won't get any worse. I use the Club Glove ones that feel like a wetsuit.

I have thought about buying a set of covers everytime I'm in the golf shop but never do. Seems to be just another distraction on the course. I've yet to see anyone else using them.

I probably should, my Mizunos are starting to get banged up. When I travel I wrap a couple of towels around the irons and wedges.

Used them on a set of graphite shafted irons I once had.

Realized how dumb I was for doing so as well as the graphite shafted irons

Don't invision ever using either again.

I can't stand playing with or behind someone who is constantly having to fool around with the things.....misplacing them....taking them off....putting them on.....searching for them........aaaargh!!!!

Evaluate the shot, pull the right club, practice swing, set up on the ball and pull the trigger, wipe the club off and drop it in the bag.

I'll conceed that wood and putter covers are understood nessesities...in other words, "I use them so that makes them okay". Pretty arrogant, ain't I?

Actually, my next bag will have a separate putter well so my putter can be stashed without a head cover and not get marred or beat up. This alone will speed up things nicely for me.

I read on Mizuno's web site that they don't recommend using iron covers with their clubs because they retain moisture. So I don't use them.

I have never used them and had to beg my brother to quit using them. He would take so much extra time taking them off and putting them back on .... just drove me nuts.

I've been thinking about getting some though.....I walk a lot and have a hard time keeping my clubs from making noise clanging against each other. Is this the best way to prevent that?

I also wonder about moisture?? Have thought about them, but never made the leap...invested in newer 3 wheel pull cart instead...bad left shoulder very sore after carrying for just 9 much less 18. Do have a putter cover though, did leave it off once while clubs in the trunk...now have an ugly 'smile' in the face...aarrggghhhh.

Dont use them, though they could be useful for travel. I find club covers in general cumbersome and inefficent. I take off my driver and hyrid covers before the round and leave it in the trunk until after im done. Just drop the club in the bag after the shot and move down the hole. No wasted motions. I dont use a 3-wood all that often so its no problem to keep that one on.

I admit I use them because I don't like my stuff scratched and all. It really isn't too difficult to use them...part of the routinue and don't take any time.

Also...when they are in the golf cart...I don't like the idea of the iron head hitting my driver shaft/head and putter head....that is just wrong. So the covers not only protect the iron heads from getting beat...it also protects the driver and putter.

I realize that clubs are tools and are meant to be used...but I don't like them to be beat either.
