Anyone like matching set of knit headcovers. I know where to buy them. Pics included.

30 posts in this topic

I got this set of handmade knit headcovers. I love the lines, one on driver, three on 3W, etc... This set is black with gray lines to match my bag but many color options are available. Custom orders are an option for anyone wanting certain colors. I just happened to find the colors I wanted by chance. Also, the smaller hybrid covers are the same, 3 lines on the 3h and 4 lines on the 4h. Should look really nice with the black Callaway ORG Tour 14 bag I ordered from Discount Golf World. The lady that makes them is awesome. She sells them on Ebay in very small numbers. Her Ebay name/ID is caljmdl1979. Her real name is Ju Ju and she is in San Bernadino,Ca. No doubt just a small way to make some extra cash. I saw a 4 headcover set listed (didn't have the 5 wood cover). I sent her a question saying I wanted a matching 5W cover. She emails me back 5 hours later saying it is already made and included in the set and she can ship it out today before 2pm if I want to pay her now. She had already made a "buy it now" option for this 5 headcover set and emailed me a picture of the matched set. Holy sh$*. I have not seen customer service like that in a long, long, time. The whole set was $110. Found some other ones online in the $150-200 range so this is actually good price for handmade knit covers. Aside from price, the other websites, Scottishknitter and Jan Craig were saying 4+ weeks for delivery. And one of them wasn't taking any orders till April! This lady on Ebay is a shining exception to this. Just thought I would spread the word in case anyone wanted a nice set of knit headcovers. I love the traditional look of them and they are great for protecting the clubs. I must admit, I am a bit smitten with the lines on each headcover rather than numbers. Very traditional design.



It is nice to get headcovers to match your bag. Her is the one I bought...



A few of the current items she has for sale...

I like them. My wife made me a set that matches my bag. I got 2 hybrids for x-mas so she needs to make me a couple more.

they look great, but $110 seems pricey...wait (just looked something up)... I guess it's less than Rocket Tour headcovers which are pretty similar...

Pretty cool...

My guess as to the price is time consumption?

True about the price, not cheap. But for a handmade knit headcover, yeah, lots of time there. And keep in mind the price was for 5 headcovers. I was at the other websites I mentioned and the price got upwards to $200 for a matching set of five, so $110 is actually quite cheap for something like this. A special niche product for sure, but I was so impressed I wanted to make others aware. Honestly, I had no idea it was common to spend anywhere near $200 for headcovers, let alone expect to wait months to get them made. Man was I surprised. This lady (Ju Ju) really hooked me up. I guess knit headcovers are not as common as I once thought. Makes me even more glad I have them:)

Hey guys,

Anyone know where I can find some knit covers for my woods? The prices for the Rocket Tour and Jan Craig head covers seem outrageous, and I'd rather not deal with ebay. Thanks again.

Just got a set for my wife from Ju ju. Amazing stuff and she is thrilled. Quality is top shelf. Fast delivery too. Just posting in case anyone is interested in high quality headcovers to match their bag. Ju ju rocks!

I feel the knit headcovers are one area where paying for the quality is important as there is a big difference in what is offered. I've had Jan Craig's for about 15 years and am almost disappointed they last so well - it doen't give me an excuse to get new ones! I've never had one wear out, and the new ones I've bought have only been to accomodate new clubs like adding a hybrid to the bag or moving to a 460cc driver. Some of my friends have gone with much cheaper brands and found they wore out quickly, so their cheaper price ended up being a false economy.

Another maker considered high quality is Ju Ju. Her headcovers have a great reputation and are considered cheaper than Jan Craig. I don't believe she has a website, but her email address is jujumc@charter.net . If you do a Google search for her you'll find a lot of positive comments and photos on other golf forums - her customers seem very passionate about her work and highlight the quality, how good she is to work with, and the fast speed of delivery.

From my experience and researching different brands, the best are Jan Craig and Ju Ju; they really are a step or two above anyone else's offerings. Jan Craig's are very nice quality and it is very easy to order through their website. The disadvantage is you're limited to what the options they show. Ju Ju's aren't as easy to order in that you need to correspond with her and work out what you like, but the advantage is it is even more custom with a lot more choices, and she is really good to work with.

Travis Headcovers ( http://www.travisheadcovers.com/ ) is another choice and offers good prices. I don't feel they are as high quality as JC or JuJu, but they appear much better than many of the brands out there.

This site looks like they have lots to choose from or you can custom design your own ....

I am pretty happy with my Fantastic Knits putter cover. Very fast service.

The fantastic knits stuff above is made out of acrylic yarn. Ju Ju only uses 100% high quality wool. Feel two headcovers side by side and you can appreciate the difference. Wool will last much longer and has a more heavy duty feel. With that said, I like the putter cover above. Ju ju will not make putter covers because she says they won't hold up over time and she refuses to make something that will wear out. Guess it has to do with the fabric bending and giving so much as the putter head is pulled out of the cover. So for putter covers, the above may be a good choice. But based on what Ju Ju told me, I will stick with traditional headcovers on my putters.

She is cool as all get out man. I found her last year by luck. Searching for some headcovers I looked at JC and some others. Scottish Knitter, or similar name, is located in NC which appealed to me. JC and SK wanted like $200+ to make my 5 headcovers and 3 months or so to do the work. I found Ju Ju on Ebay selling a few of her head cover sets. I contacted her. The following day she emails me a picture and says, "Do you like these, thought I would touch bases before shipping". What the heck. Talk about customer service. One week from when I had the idea to get headcovers, they were on my clubs. Been using mine for a year and they still look brand new. Got my wife a set as well which she LOVES. They match her bag of course, women love stuff that matches more than we do it seems. Ju Ju emails me a few weeks later and ask how I like my headcovers. I was beside myself. Awesome product, super nice lady, avid golfer as well, just nothing but good things to say.

I decided recently to get two more hybrid covers with tassles (mine had pom poms). I email Ju Ju and have the two headcovers below 6 days later. Unreal.

    • It seems from the ratings that I have seen that, like me, there were a lot of people watching the final round of golf for both the women and the men at the Rio Olympics. The ratings for the men were in fact, second only to the Masters. That is truly fantastic to hear. Going into this Olympics, at least on the men's side, you might think that we were set for a complete disaster. All but a few of the high profile names dropped out for multiple reasons. Pika, safety, or the real reason - just plain tired. I suspect all that didn't play sort of wished they did. They will come out and say that they didn't miss it, because they don't want to look stupid, but the reality is they probably have a pit in their stomach for missing the first Olympics in over 100 years. I am talking about Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, and yes I suspect even Rory McIlroy.

    • Let us know how it goes when you get them.
    • According to GAME GOLF, I have 68% GIR and 13% birdies. 13%/68% (I almost never chip in for birdie) = 19.12%.
    • Damn dude, 4.1?  Wow.  I think you and I were about even when I joined here a couple years ago, 6-something.  You're going in the right direction, I'm headed the other way.  I'm actually at 9.4 at the minute but haven't updated here cuz it's painful and I consider it temporary .  Hand pain gone, actually went to the range this week, 1st time in a year.  So, I plan to throw down a 78 or so and be back under 9 by end of day, fingers crossed.  Keep rolling. No idea what my birdie conversion rate is, I'd guess pretty respectable cuz my putting never left me.
