Gigagolf Golf Clubs


Recommended Posts

I know its at the extreme end of the scale. I don't think the made for OEM shafts are as common in irons as they are/ were in drivers. Even if you don't put the most expensive shafts in; a moderate shaft and grip up grade can put you in the realms of a decent OEM set on discount. The likes of the Adams sets with 2,3, or 4 hybrids in particular offer very good value if they suit you

Gigagolf is not ripping anybody off. They are providing a great club at a great price cutting out all the middle men. You have to go find Gigagolf, they don't come to you and try to sell you anything. So I'm not sure why you think they are ripping you off, you have choice, don't buy anything from them.

The major club makers you mentioned are ripping everyone off. When you have to pay $400 for a $5.00 steel shaft and a $30 golf head then shell out $29 for a $2 golf hat to advertise their products that they are handing out for free to every millionaire pro golfer on tour they are clearly ripping the consumer off. It's a scam and everyone knows it, except the criminals profiting from it.

Gigagolf are not clones, they make their own clubs, and high quality custom fit clubs at that. I've owned two sets and now trying the forged irons. They custom fit thier clubs with a no question asked 30 day money back guarantee. Try getting that when you buy your $1200 set down at your local pro or sporting good store for off the shelf run of the mill one size fits all golf clubs.

I bought a driver from Gigagolf, and I didn't like the sound it made, called them up, got a RA# and sent it back with a full refund.

So whil you go bad mouth a company that provides a great service and really nice clubs that are custom fit with your choice of shafts, length, lie that play every bit as well if not better than any other off the shelf rip off golf club I'll keep enjoying a great club at a great price and play as well if not better than most of my golf buddies playing their $1200 sets.

Haha, yeah, that diatribe came out of nowhere and may as well have been addressed "To Whom It May Concern"

If you are looking at buying their clubs I would strongly urge you to spend 5 minutes to read the entire review.

Unlike most people who have left reviews I actually went to a professional club fitter that has a Trackman radar system. The Trackman is a $20,000 dual radar system that is used by almost all PGA tour pros. It tracks every possible aspect of your swing from the plane, angle of attack, ball speed, spin, club head speed, ect... Here are the actual results which you can view at the link below.

All shots were done with a 7 iron. I tested the Mizuno JPX, Ping le1, Nike Vapor, Callaway XR, and Cobra Fly Z. If you would just like a summary you can proceed to the 2 points below.

https://trackmanfilesus.blob.core.windows.net/publicfiles/96a8d2cb-ff88-412f-9715-579603ae5a75/Sterling%20Suhr%202015-07-25%20Multi%20Group%20Report.pdf

1.) Ball Speed - On average the Gigajunk had a 9% low ball speed. Why is this so important you might ask...keep reading.

2.) Carry Distance - On average with the name brand clubs I had an average carry of 167 yards with the 7 irons. With the Gigajunk irons I had an average carry of ONLY 146 yards! That is a 21 yards less carry with a 7 iron! Ask yourself this...would you rather take a 7 iron into the green or a 5 iron? I think you get the point.

The next point is for all of those who think they will just try the clubs and then send them back under the "30 Day Play Guarantee". I got the "return merchandise" email from Gigagolf on July 31st of 2015. I then sent the clubs back which they confirmed they received them via email and via audio recording, of which I have both.

After a month had passed I emailed them to say I did not get the refund. They said they would send it out right away. I never received it so I emailed them 2 months later. They have continued to say they would send it but never have. It has now been 7 months and still no refund.

I have tried 2 sets of their clubs on the Trackman and both sets of clubs performed just as poorly. ALL of their clubs are terrible and I would highly recommend avoiding them. For only $100 more you can get a name brand set that will blow them away.

For Gigagolf....you can send the refund or I can continue to post these reviews on every possible location I can find. I could really care less about the money but I do care about companies ripping off consumers. While $300 doesn't really mean anything to me, I don't want to see you screw someone who can't afford to lose it on an inferior product.

Looking at the Trackman report you also had the worst attack angle and face to path numbers so a lot of that is coming from your swing.

You realize that not every 7 iron has the same lofts, yes? Typically OEMs like Callaway and TaylorMade will crank lofts on a 7 iron down to as low as 27°. Most of GigaGolf’s stuff is traditionally loft (around 35° on a 7 iron)  OEMs are banking on you testing the club and seeing that this newfangled 7 iron goes much further than whatever your playing. 
 

But you need to take into account the loft on your old club or any club you test against. I can make any club I want to and stamp a 7 at the bottom. What matters is how the club performs at 35 degrees of loft. So that 7 iron you hit from GigaGolf is likely higher lofted than even the 8 irons of those other sets.

Yeah that’s not really how it works. You’re leaving out some important facts. New technology has allowed for improved distance and ball flight parameters. To get a 7i to still behave like a 7i, they have to adjust the lofts. It’s not simply reducing the loft to make someone think they’re hitting a 7i as far as a 6i.

    • Thanks. I can't say I see the point, but if it works for you, I also can't say it's all that bad. The left index finger doesn't do a whole lot.
    • DAY 1: Indoor Range Session w/ Irons -- focus on clubhead orientation during takeaway [30 min.]
    • So, I spent a little time testing out these golf balls with my Mevo+. As many know, indoors, the spin can be off due to the short amount of time a radar has has to measure spin. Metal dots help, but even then, FlightScope users will occasionally see an italic spin number. Italics are your FlightScope's way of saying "I think this is a decent spin number, but I'm not super confident in that." Sometimes the number is half, or double, and sometimes it's just off by some random factor. Sometimes it's dead accurate. The point is, when the number is italic, your FlightScope is unsure. It's not confident. I tested these balls out by hitting a Pro V1 RCT and a Pro V1x RCT along-side a 2021 Pro V1 and Pro V1x. The regular golf balls were "stickered" with a single metallic dot, which we oriented at the top of the golf ball*. A few mid-irons were chosen, with ball speeds ranging from 115 to 135 MPH. Shots were distributed somewhat randomly, while all clubs were hit with all clubs evenly. 20 shots were hit with each ball (4 each with a 5I, 6I, 7I, 9I, SW). Truly bad impacts were discarded. Here are the results. The Pro V1 Dot saw spin numbers that ranged from 3592 to 10918. 8 of the 20 results were italicized. All of the italicized numbers were in the 3590 to 3950 range, while the lowest non-italicized number was 4816. Some of the italicized results were hit with higher lofted clubs than the 4816 club. The Pro V1 RCT saw spin numbers in a much tighter range, and more consistent when hit with the same club. Spin numbers ranged from 5221 to 11875, but within each club, spin numbers were within ± 750 RPM. There were no italic numbers. The Pro V1x Dot saw spin numbers again that ranged from 3586 to 9342. Six of the 20 numbers were italicized. The Pro V1x RCT saw spin numbers that ranged from 4791 (this was a toe-biased contact with a 5I) to 11752. Spin numbers were relatively consistent within each club, and once again, there were no italic numbers. Of 40 balls hit with the dotted V1/V1x, 14 were italicized. 14/40 is 35%. Of the 40 balls hit with the RCT versions, 0 were italicized. All got standard, "trustworthy" spin results according to the FlightScope Mevo+. As you may know, the FlightScope Mevo+ and all other launch monitors, particularly when used indoors, have ballistics models. They read what they can — launch angles, ball speed, spin (RPM, spin axis) — and combine those with the environmental factors you've set (like altitude, temperature, etc.) to calculate the ball's trajectory: the peak height, the distance, the landing angle, the curve. If the spin is off — say, instead of being 7200 the Mevo+ or your launch monitor thinks it's spinning at 5500 — you're going to get a poorly calculated ball flight. Your sim game will not be accurate, or your range or practice session, or your skills challenge, or whatever you're doing on your launch monitor. WOW. I'm impressed. Now, it wasn't the biggest sample size, but 14 (35%) >> 0. I'm going to be buying a few dozen of each of the V1 and V1x RCT models. Though they were developed with Trackman, the press release says they should work with all other radar, and that seems to be true. Further enhancements may be possible, too, but even if there are none the results were quite believable. I plan to use my Mevo+ (with the Pro package at some point) in the GEARS bay, and occasionally for regular lessons. It'll be nice not to have to worry about the metallic dots — how they're oriented, whether they're wearing off from impact with the net, etc. * You'll often read to place the dot on the front of the golf ball, because then when you hit the ball with backspin, it spins front to back. Placing the dot on the top accomplishes the same thing while spreading out the contact point on the golf ball around the "equator" instead of the one place opposite the metal dot.
    • Has anyone tried the new MacGregor VIP irons that are being sold by online retailers for around $200?  
    • So same feels - open hips and chest to camera to get as wide as I can but seems like this raising up at A4 shit is stubborn. Turn through and exit are okayish so meh..  BTW, this Cally Apex 18 deg is a lot of fun to train with. Doesn't tolerate half ass swings. Lol.
