Fake clubs from Hurricane Golf?

Recommended Posts

bertspro    4

I received 3 and 4 TaylorMade Rescue 11s today from Hurricane Golf and the paint and shading of each is slightly different. The yellow that is used for the word Rescue is slightly lighter on the 3, there is an area on the bottom of the club head that is shaded black on the 4 and dark grey on the 3. Lastly there is a smudge in one area of paint on the bottom of the 3. Apart from these things, the weight, grips, shafts, etc are all pretty nice. What are your guys' thoughts? Have a round scheduled for 11 tomorrow and unfortunately I'm considering not playing these clubs in case I have to return them.

Edit: See further down in thread for an update.

Sir

I can tell you as the owner of Hurricane Golf that those clubs are 1000 percent real.  Call my cell and I can explain why the colors may be slightly different on that and other TM  models.  815 621 3556.  Thanks Jason Hiland

Wow... I've never purchased clubs online... but after reading that the owner of the company replied AND provided you his cell number... if I DO ever purchase online... I'm giving this place a shot.

Kudos, Jason.

Hurricane is legit, as are their products.  I've purchased 2 sets of irons, a driver, a hybrid, and a pair of shoes from them.  I recommended them to a friend who bought a set of irons and a driver, and another friend who got some shoes.  We were all pleased with their prices, fast shipping, and overall service.

I would question the legitimacy of a 1-post member who chooses a homo-erotic image of a shirtless man as his avatar, and claims a company is selling fakes before even taking it up with the company.

I got a message from Jason Hiland explaining a couple of things which may have happened and I am now confident that the 3 is legit. I did take the clubs to a local golf store for grips yesterday and my guy is very familiar with TaylorMade, having used to work for them and plays all TM clubs, and he told me that there is no way the 3 should have passed inspection and that most sellers would have pulled it from their inventory upon seeing it due to the imperfect paint on the sole. Hurricane Golf shipped it to me in the bubble wrap and cellophane bag so no one would have seen it before shipping out. It doesn't affect the playability of the club, so I am happy. I should mention that I am 100% satisfied with the other items from my order also.

After dealing with Jason, I would have no problem buying from Hurricane Golf again. He stands behind his company and the products that they sell and I am confident that had this gone the other way, he would have ensured that I was made whole. I do want to apologize for the title of the post. If I could I would delete it.

6oo - I'll go make a bunch of posts elsewhere if it'll make me seem more "legitimate." Not sure what you mean by that, I have the clubs in my bag, and I hit them last night at the range. They exist and so do I, if that's what you're getting at... And you have 12 posts - clearly a forum veteran.

I had an issue with Hurricane in the past and Jason stepped up and took care of it immediately.  It's impressive that he stepped up as he did to address a customer concern for you just as he did with me.  Seems to me that Jason is doing things right up there in DeKalb.

not that i swing that way, but whats wrong with that?  does it make you uncomfortable?  you should be confident enough in your sexuality to not care about something so trivial.

Does 1000 percent mean the same thing as 100%?

Must be one of those "new math" that government is using for budgets.

bertspro -- I suggest you EDIT your first post to include this information at the top of the thread. A post in a trusted forum like this can be hurtful. I'd hate for others to see a google search and be left weigh the impression that you still have issues -- when you do not. Your first post stated facts as you saw them (good for you) and avoided accusations. The thread title sure looks more damning than the posts and could unintentionally hurt what may well be a fine company.

Lots of good sellers and plenty of bad ones. This is a great place for real golfers to share the news. To that end, we should be careful.

Under the circumstances maybe the mods can modify the thread title? Simply adding a question mark - Fake clubs from Hurricane Golf? - would lead most people to read the thread as opposed to just the title.

I don't think you can edit once someone has replied to your post. One of the admins will probably do something, I would think.

Oh, and put a shirt on dude!

I too am very impressed and will absolutely give them a shot with my next purchase. Pretty darn cool that the owner responded.

    • The entire purpose of rules are to make things fair... Someone breaching a rule could literally make it unfair. 
    • A meh, but fairly satisfactory 84 considering the break. I had like 9-10 pars or better. got lucky on more than a few scrambles, but a lot of doubles+. My biggest lesson learned after a long break: don't try to go after it.  it cost me a bunch of penalties trying to rope a few out there.  Aviara's beautiful tho, almost disneyland like.  Watching LPGA highlights there on youtube made us all sad about ourselves.
    • So.....you're sayin' it's physically mental......or mentally physical or is it feel vs mechanical or is it a sport or a hobby all I know is I want to golf that ball with my fairway metal while sporting my cargo shorts and rocking my driving hat while hitting a golf shot and being a great driver of the golf ball while someone mumbles 'shot' after a good golf strike of the golf ball and driving the golf cart and drinking the golf bloody mary
    • I don't know if golf is more mental than physical or vice versa.  But I am convinced that a different mental approach/focus can help many problems in the game that many, if not most, instructors view as purely physical/swing related issues.  A correct mental picture/intent can help golfers improve, and combining a mental approach with physical swing training can greatly accelerate improvement.      Take an over the top swing as an example.  With the pure physical approach, the instructor watches the player hit a few balls and dissects the swing into component parts.  The instructor gives a bunch of physical causes:  you take the club too inside or outside, you have too much weight on the front or back foot, you should be supinating your wrist or pronating it, your hips are firing too soon or too late.  The instructor has the player work on a different take away for the first week.  When that gets better, they move onto the next problem and try to fix it.  Two months late, the player is hitting it much better on the range, but still frequently comes over the top on the course.  The more the student focuses on the ball, the more likely a OTT swing will show up.     The other approach:  the instructor watches the student take some practice swings and then hit some balls.  The instructor notices that the student rarely comes over the top for a practice swing but does so on most, but not all swings with a ball.  Okay, she asks, why is the player sometimes coming over the top?  Why is it worse when a ball is present?  The instructor asks what the player is focused on.  The ball of course.  I want to hit the ball, make sure the club head makes good contact.  The instructor then changes the focus of the player from hitting the ball to swinging through the ball to a target.  The instructor explains that OTT is the default when the ball is the target.  She gives some drills to improve focus away from the ball:  the player hits whiffle balls to warm up, the player has to verbally identify the target and intermediary target and rehearse swinging out to the target, the instructor gives the student a mental image of swinging through the ball instead of hitting at the ball.  After a week, the over the top move shows up less often and is not as pronounced.  The instructor continues to have the student work on the mental side of swinging to the target and combines that with swing changes.     In the physical only approach, the physical changes will be harder to adopt because the physical swing is fighting against the students mental image of what is needed and the student's primary focus.  When the mental and physical are aligned, progress will be faster.  Another way to say it:  the mind directs the body. The mind is telling the body to swing one way when the ball is the target and a different way when swinging to the pin.      In any case, an instructor who ignores the student's thoughts is short changing the student by focusing only on the physical.  There's an old saying, if the only tool you have is a hammer, everything begins to look like a nail.  If the instructor only deals with physical swing changes, every problem looks like a physical problem.     On the course, which is more important, the physical or the mental?  I don't know, but it is important that the mental image/goal/focus aids the physical side instead of fighting against it.
