Hireko golf clubs, etc

15 posts in this topic

I did a search here and there seems to be a number of threads that mention Hireko Golf.

I recently purchased a used Synchron II 9 wood and loved it so I bought the whole set of heads, steel True Temper shafts and Golf Pride grips that I found at Dicks that I really love and put the set together.

Ive had them out a few times and they hit so well you almost feel like your cheating playing with them.

I guess the point is just to ask if anyone else has tried these woods out.

I didnt get the premade set because I dont like graphite shafts because of the way they feel.

Has anyone else tried the Synchron II woods and if so how do you like them?

Another question is has anyone bought used or tried any of the other clubs or club heads that Hireko sells?

I saw a couple others on the site that I thought I might want to try but I dont know enough about clubs to jump into anything without some idea of whether theyre good clubs or not.

Thanks in advance :)

I've used Hireko a little bit, tend to use Monark more because their prices are just a little better. However, clubs I've bought from them, a couple of heads and a full putter for my wife and it has all been excellent. As long as you know what to look for in quality you will get good clubs.

Monarch seems to be a pretty good site too. Definitely going to bookmark it.

The have the same club heads for the same price. Glad to see I didnt pay too much.

Hireko's equipment is top notch as is their Man Jeff Summit. If you have any questions at all contact him through their site forums or by email. I am not affiliated with Hireko in any shape form or fashion, but have used plenty of their equipment. I own 2 sets of their irons and 1 driver as I type.

Its good to hear the good reviews.

I absolutely love the clubs I built with the heads and shafts I bought from Hireko.

They hit so well its almost hard to hit a bad shot.

After I hacked off a tee shot the other day over being distracted I used two of the fairway woods I built to get to the green and couldnt believe the shots.

One was pretty much center of fairway just within easy reach and so I used a 15 wood to get over the creek and drop the ball on the right side of the green.

I love these fairway woods. They have a lot of loft and get a bit further than an iron of the same loft and you dont have to put a lot of effort in at all. They seem to hit better when you dont go nuts trying to nail the  ball, which is perfect for my game.

But then this Taylor Made driver is about the same. When I try to crush the ball Im lucky to get an out of control 220 yard drive.

When I cut back the power and just swing the club a lot less  aggressively I can get 250-270 yards or so and actually keep it somewhere on the fairway.

I agree that Hireko and Jeff Summitt design great gear at a great price. I'm seriously considering them when it's time to build new clubs for myself.

I purchased a club from Hireko recently convinced by their play-ability return policy that I had nothing to loose. WAS I WRONG! When I called to get the RA number I was told that I would have to pay the return shipping on the club, that seemed fair. but I would only receive a store credit for the cost of the club less shipping AND MY NEXT ORDER WOULD HAVE A MINIMUM SHIPPING CHARGE OF $19.95 meaning that the credit would in fact COST ME MONEY. Beware they hide their cunningness. Slimebags at best cheats maybe. By the way the clubs quality was good it just did not play to my satisfaction.

I would've had to go over their head. That's BS and not a satisfactory ending.

In my experience (ACER irons & woods), the club quality is excellent. Their technical staff who put the clubs together are very adept and helpful, based on my calls with their tech support staff.

Clubs are actually pretty simple at the end of the day. A head, shaft and grip. You pick the shafts & grips that you want (e.g. Aldila, Fujikura, True Temper, Project X, UST Mamiya, etc. Then you choose a clubhead...note almost all clubheads are produced in the same factories in China (except for Ping).

The key is fitting the 3 together with the right characteristics for your swing...

I built an Acer XF 4 wood, 12 degree driver and a Thriver (14 degree driver w/extra weight to be used with a shorter shaft). All good quality, weights within a gram of the listed specs. (All shafted with AXE shafts from GolfWorks.)

I hit the 4 wood well, As I've come to realize I really cannot stand the look of a 460cc driver head, I don't use the other two, even though I hit them ok.

I don't know if i'd go so far as to call them "Cheats" but they definitely have a LAX customer service policy, as well as shipping.  When i order components for customers of mine, i always tell them that they will be here in 10 days. Some days they decide to ship Priority mail and i get things in 3 days. other times they use FedEx and i don't see them for up to 8.  There's no rhyme or reason to it, and there's no guarantee your shipment will even go out in a certain amount of time. I really think their prices are the only things that keep them in business because it's really the only reason i keep getting components there. Only when i can wait for them for that matter.

Unfortunately that post is 2 yrs old. If I have issues, I contact Jeff Summit. He is more than willing to help make things right.

When I first started play years ago, and had two kids in college so I didn't have much money, I used Monark golf for a full set of clubs. I was very happy with them, they played very well.  I especially liked their wedges. For the money I don't think you can go wrong. Now that my kids are out of college and there is new found wealth, I've moved on the Callaway golf, nice clubs but I still have the Monark clubs which I play every once in a while. I have never had a bad experience with them. I like that you can choose your heads, shafts, grips etc. I had them assemble the clubs and they were excellent. For beginners it is a nice way to go IMHO.

Be careful ordering Hireko golf clubs.  Some of their components do not meet USGA rules standards.  Make sure you contact them before purchasing club heads.  Ask if the item you want conform to USGA rules.  You can also check lists provided at the USGA site.

    • I agree that Acree put others in danger. And as I stated before, the laws regarding weapons and/or assault need to be enforced in this case. And the rest of my statements only apply if he was fairly certain this guy was the thief (of which none of us knows the truth). I don't care in the least that he threatened the guy's life or kicked him in the head. If I stole from someone, I would expect the same treatment. I promise you, most thieves know it's coming if they get caught by the wrong person. As for leaving this up to the police to solve and retrieve the property... sorry, but that's naive. Go ahead and look the statistics up of recovered stolen property - excluding motor vehicles. As for the police not using what some may view as excessive force... when someone is acting as this guy did, I don't believe they are very "gentle" with them. I don't think they can afford to be. They may be smart enough not to kick anyone, but they'll make sure those cuffs are on nice and tight. I'd love to hear from a law enforcement officer - even if it meant my opinion was proven wrong. But because the rest of us have zero experience in apprehending a suspected criminal, none of us are qualified to do more than offer our stupid-ass opinions. It's a pissing contest of opposing views that will likely lead to the thread being closed. There is no one way to act in this situation. You can think of yourselves as highly intelligent on one side of the argument, or Dirty Harry on the other. But this crap goes way beyond reason or ego. When faced with the situation, you either act, or you don't. And if you're going to act, you can't go halfway. Probably the best thing Acree could have done - once he pulled his weapon - was threaten the guy's life and leave no doubt (at least that's my stupid-ass opinion). I wouldn't have done what he did and that's why I leave my weapons at home. But criminals love the fact that most of us are passive.
    • Hi guys, been working on the swing. Had a few lessons, playing once or twice a week and got down to a score of 20 over par (92 on a 72). But still really struggling with inconsistency. Losing a lot of balls each round, have a bad miss when I come through the ball with a wide open club face and the ball screams straight right out of bounds. Did this on the first tee this week into someone's house...not good when the club pro and loads of people were watching. A dog was barking for the next few minutes :( Any tips? saving up for some more lessons soon but they are expensive to get as much as I want.
    • Chainsaws get heavy if you carry your clubs, gotta take a cart.
    • So the younger guy on the original is a science teacher in nearby, (for me), Middleborough MA. I think it was high school.
    • I know you mentioned it, but you're showing yourself as a 30+ handicap.  For the next few years, the sole grind of your wedges isn't going to be nearly as important as learning to use them properly.  In your shoes, I'd be looking at lightly used clubs in approximately the right loft/bounce combinations, without getting too bogged down in the next level of details.
