I played clone clubs from Monark Golf for years, before back surgery put me out of commission for a few years. My friend Don is a club maker, he made the clubs for me. I had no problem with these clubs, the irons or the woods. I did not experience any of the issues addressed above. At Monark you can order clubs already assembled at really good prices if you want. But as I said I had my friend Don fit me and assemble the clubs. It was a fun experience because you get a huge selection of heads and shafts to pick from. I still have the set and sometimes I take them out to play a round with them.

I realize that this is a very old thread, but for what it's worth as far as clones and in particular the King Snake's. When they first came out, way back when, I had a friend that was in the club business. He ordered 12 sets of snakes from a distributor in California. When they arrived, only 8 sets were King Snake, the other 4 sets were King Cobra's. When he notified the distributor about the mix up, he was told to just keep the Cobra's, but for informational sake, he was further told that Cobra actually produced the Snake. So Cobra cornered the clone market on their own product. If you place a Cobra and a Snake side by side, the only difference is in the name and it's the same number of letters. IMO, very smart on Cobra's part for removing the competition in the clone market, as far as their club was concerned. No for clones in general. Everything is made in China, even the name brands and I've had some name brands that played like crap and clones that played great. If spending big bucks is not a problem and thinking that your going to get the same equipment that the pro's play with, well I've got a bridge and some beach front property that can be had fairly cheap..........

I've played a number of clone models and based on my experience with them I would recommend Pinemeadow golf as consistently best quality and performance.  In fact I still play Pinemeadow brand fairway woods as they are easy to hit and far less expensive than most OEM brands.

You might want to check out their website.

Pinemeadowgolf.com

Good luck .

So, after all this discussion and all the supporting chatter for "quality" clones and component club makers you've never offered a link to the website you initially referred to.

    • A couple death shots from today's round. First one was death of my driver (shaft). The shaft snapped on a routine swing about an inch above the ferrule. Wasn't a chunk, or contact off the heel/hosel area, no idea what happened. Impact felt weird, and then the driver head was hanging a bit funny, and was still partially connected, but the shaft was clearly toast. Contacted Cobra customer service, and hopefully I can get a new shaft sorted out under warranty since the club is only ~6 months old. Second one was on #17. I hit my approach shot to the green which missed about a yard right, kicked right off a slope, and landed right behind an old stump with tall grass growing all around it. If it lands 2 feet right or left, it's a pretty easy pitch onto the green Perspective on the photo isn't great, but to go at the hole the ball would basically need to pop straight up, and the stump is obstructing any type of follow through. The only chance I had was to stub a wedge into the ground behind the ball and try to pop it up over the stump. Didn't work and the ball ricocheted back about 3-4 yards, where I put the next one on the green, and 2 putted for 6.
    • Hmm.. yeah. Well let's see what we get. 
    • Day 323 Played 18 today. Started off hitting the ball really well, and felt like I was going to have a solid day of ballstriking. Then the shaft of my driver snapped on the third hole on a routine shot, and I mentally checked out after that. At least I got a lot of good practice hitting 3W today.
    • Get’n those bad ones out early - it’s all about peaking at the right time 
    • As a 53 year former resident of Ohio and a graduate of THE Ohio State University, I would like to play next year if your rules allow.
