Don't get me wrong, the 910 headcovers are nice, and I liked mine when I had the 910 D2, but I'm not sure you can say the nicest and classiest by far... I have the RBZ right now and think that headcover is just as nice and I liked the headcover for my R9 as well. Really I kind of like any head cover that is the traditional "sock" type or whatever you wan't to call it, not really a fan of magnetic/zipper closures.

I hate advertising on my covers or anything for that matter. Currently I have a bear and a skunk covering the driver and the 3 wood respectfully.

I have had the nickname Bear (or versions of) since I was 12 or so and I always have at least one bear on the clubs. The skunk was from the kids. I think it is a statement of some sort :)

I can only spend on green fees and good equipment, most often 2nd hand stuff without head covers.  So when i need a head cover i go off to the thrift shop and search out some tall colorful stockings, and often soccer socks are the best.  Yeah, i know it's weird, cheap and only partly effective. I just don't need 'full protection' for my head so the socks do me fine. The advantages are simply that my pull trolley is immediately identifiable because of the bright blue cover on the driver and the bright yellow covers on the 2 hybrids, the ease of removal for faster play and lack of possessiveness towards these marginal items.

Not original but I do like the Cobra head covers. I usually take all my head covers off and leave them in the car when I play. I'm afraid I'll forget it in the golf cart or leave it on the course someplace. I have looked in Golfsmith, Dicks and on-line and have not found one I would use.

I've checked all of these above mentioned covers out and they are all pretty nice if you ask me. I am looking to add some color and character to my bag this winter and was just wondering what everyone else prefers. I have the Cleveland Classic head cover which is pretty classy as far as having a retro leather look to it but also a Mickey Mouse head cover that is bright and colorful. My son loves Mickey Mouse so figured it wouldn't hurt to throw that on the clubs for a few rounds.

Daphne's makes some nice animal-themed headcovers.  Ive got a dragon on my driver.  In Japanese mythology, dragons were believed to scare away bad spirits and I could sure you the bad spirits scared out of my golf game.

Beyond that, theres some really cool headcovers from Japan.  A lot of them are anime/manga characters, as well as some Snoopy and Hello Kitty.  Its all really expensive though.  Theyre cool and all but I have a hard time pay $75-$100 for a headcover.

IMO....the best covers are personalized.  The first thing I do when I buy a new club is remove the cover that came with it..LOL

I will have to check them out. I don't know about forking out that much for a cover but I suppose it all just depends.

My favorite kind of headcovers are the "Stealth" brand that you can buy at Golf Galaxy and other places. Made of a highly durable, stretchable, rubber type fabric. Easy to place on your club and easy to remove. Knit headcovers tend to stretch out and develop holes over time - the "Stealth" ones do not.

    • The most esoteric golf tournament name ever...
    • Hey all, we are off and running.  My #1 shot a 79 at a collegiate course where we played the "white tee positions" for the majority of the tournament.  She was working on an exceptional round when she triple bogeyed hole 18.  She is real long off of the tee.  She is rock solid on the green.  Word is finally out there about her and I've worked hard at getting her name in front of college coaches.  After this showing (2nd) she has received 5 emails from 5 colleges this week.  Tonight, she shot par on our home course.  That is a great feat since our course was under water a week ago.  The fairways are not good and there is now a lot of standing water and GUR.  The next golfer was 5 shots behind and she is the #1 for a traditionally state ranked team.  Unfortunately, the rest of my team didn't do so well.  We play tomorrow again. It will be a major chore.  These mosquitoes are gigantic.  I have welts all over me and I sprayed a couple of times.  My #2 shot a 51 and looks like she has hives.  Her mosquito repellent can was  empty and I didn't know it until she was on hole #5.  She said that she was playing in a cloud of mosquitoes.  Tonight, I had my wife go buy new Deep Woods Off for every player.  We will put a can in each player's bag.  I've never seen anything like this but the corn fields around the course are all still under water.  Some Notes: My golfers have a hard time learning how to line up their shots.  We work on various things but it doesn't sink in for some time. My players have swings that are too long.  Most look like John Daley and so, I have to help them control that back swing better.  We spend a lot of time working on putting and we putted really well tonight.  The problem is, we didn't get off the tee box in good fashion due to alignment.  We have trouble everywhere and our course is very tight.  My softball player turned golfer as a favor to me will play as #4 tomorrow.  She has played golf for exactly 2 weeks now.  We have trees everywhere.  I have to teach all of my players how to hit stingers low and long.  I have three players that can do so and draw the ball doing it.  We shot a 205 as a team tonight.  That isn't very good.  Tomorrow, we have to do a lot better.  (We still beat a couple of teams since the conditions were so bad.  It was also 100+ heat index)
    • Yeah, the ex-marshal did go a bit overboard. Not sure if he would have really pulled the trigger or not, though. One thing for sure, the thief will think twice before attempting to steal club again. In fact, anyone reading the article might give it a second thought.   That's kind of true.
    • I apologize guys....heres the video
    • I just can't narrow it down to one or two items... Stihl MS 180 chainsaw - 12 years of heavy use and it simply won't die. Even dropped an ash tree on it years ago. I have a larger Stihl but prefer to use the little fella. It may be starting to lose compression. If so, I'll buy the same model as a replacement. Carvin solid body electric. Love this guitar. I also have a Guild Starfire IV Semi-hollow body electric which is a beautiful instrument. I play the Carvin a lot more. iMac (purchased in 2007). I'd love to get a new Mac Mini, but this thing is still running strong going on 10 years - even if 60 fps, 1080 video doesn't run very well on it. Firearms and reloading equipment. All of it. Have to get back into reloading. 2004 Silverado 1500. The Northern Winters have taken a toll on her. Stays parked a lot now but is still my all-time favorite vehicle.
