How do you find out about new clubs, clothes, balls

12 posts in this topic

Where do you look or what sources do you reference when you want to find out more about new items.

How do you like retailers and manufacturers to talk to you?

We are a new company and interested in understanding how we should talk to you

Is it forums?

Is it facebook ads?

What works?

Thanks folks

You can certainly learn about equipment on forums like this. Key is to take every 'opinion' with a grain of salt and make an informed decision based on fact and personal observation. My decision process about any product is to learn about the existance of a product, do google searches and look for sites with reviews. If the reviews look positive, I may purchase something outright if it's a low-cost item, or go see it in person to see, touch, feel the product if necessary. If it's a big dollar item, enlisting the advice of a professional may be warranted. Forums and websites with reviews. Industry publications. Retailers. Professional advice. These are the mediums that help collect facts leading to an informed purchase decision. dave

Dave thanks for such a detailed response. I really appreciate that. I don't know if you are big and tall but if you don't mind I would love to get your opinion on Aveo right now. We are new but we are available and info does exist. We are pushing right now to create more brand presence and awarness. Your feedback would be greatly appreciated

Hi Mr Desmond. I love that you said that. We are doing both now. Our fb page is www.facebook.com/aveogolf and we have just had 2 of 4 reviews to drop right here on the sand trap. Check them out under the apparel forum and give me your thoughts. We also had a review to drop on Bunkers Paradise. All have been good thus far. We would love to hear more from you.

Sure, let me do some poking around your website and sellers websites this weekend. This is a regular part of my full-time day job sometimes ... to review customer websites and make recommendations on how to update and/or upgrade the website messaging customers see. dave

Thanks Dave - We are actually beginning to redesign our website in the coming weeks so any feedback you have will be extremely valuable to us.  - Thanks

Also based on what you find would you be comfortable enough to buy based on website, facebook, reviews, and information on the internet.

Thanks

I am probably the exception to the norm because I make absolutely no effort to keep up with the new technology of the day.   I don't really care to stay current to the day..so to speak.    I stay relatively current because I play a lot and I'm around the game.

I pay no attention to the new driver being released by XYZ company this summer.

I agree.  Drivers and such seem to come down in price so fast, I just wait to get it used most of the time.

I honestly can't tell you exactly which 5-wood and 4-rescue I play.

I know they are both Razr.....

I know one of the 2 clubs is a Razr Fit,  and the other club is a different Razr....Hahaha.....I couldn't tell you which club is the Fit without looking.  They both play as if they are the exact same.

I can understand that.  I am that way to a point - I pay attention to new technology but always with the plan of if I like it i will buy it next year once its replacement comes out and the price drops (i also buy used ALOT - 3ballsgolf is my friend - check them out if you have not.  Ill buy a new driver about every 3-5 years same with my other woods - putter i rarely replace.

Now on the other hand when it comes to apparel i was constantly paying attention there just because i am a BIG guy and if anything was releasing that i thought may fit i was giving it a try - we (big guys) tend to have to buy what we can find that fits and buy it at that moment bc its a rare find -  that is the entire reason i created Aveo just to have a brand that constantly had the big and tall golfer in mind.

    • For those who don't show clubs in your sig line. I currently carry: 1-3-5 "woods" 2-SW (mid 90's loft angles, unlike stronger modern lofts) Putter I probably don't need the 5W, and I'd like to try a hybrid or two. Some day...  
    • Ok thanks. I feel like I am stuck right between reg and stiff. Hard to tell though as the last time I hit stiff flex in my irons my ball striking wasn't as good or as consistent. I play stiff flex in my driver, 3 wood and hybrids but that's mainly for consistency. I've always had a high ball flight since I started playing golf but lately it's become ridiculously high. Do you guys think moving over to stiff flex would help with lowering the ball flight.

      http://www.gamegolf.com/player/roamin/round/1613273 Beautiful (and hot!) Florida sunshine, four rounds of golf, and $20 buck on skins. Great weekend! Highlights were, first and foremost, the 39 on the front nine this morning (a personal best), and the amazing par, birdie, par finish to the day.
    • Four rounds this weekend, two on Saturday and two on Monday. Shot 89, 90, 84, 91. Today was skins day and luckily, my highlight round came this morning. The front nine was just awesome, shot 39 with six pars and three bogeys. Then got stupid on the 10th after the first bad drive of the day and hit a tree, twice (well, different trees ), and made triple. Three more pars and nothing worse than a single after that, to finish with an 84. Fifty cent skins, plus extra skins for birdies, and low score on front, back, and overall for each round. I was up by 20 skins on the 18th in the second round when we went double or nothing.   I hit my longest drive of the day, at 274 yards, with a perfect angle left to the par 5 green. Then hit a perfect 3W and ended up 6 feet off the front-left edge of the green. Thinned the pitch-shot a little and it rolled about ~15 feet passed the hole...two-putt for par. My buddy had hit a tree with his 3W (bad angle off the tee), and finished with a double. $20 bucks! Cha-ching! What a great weekend! 
    • Austin had a great swing but other than the "macro" moves I don't see many similarities to DJ. - Austin had a slightly weak or neutral grip, DJ uses a strong one
      - Austin raised his left heel on the backswing 
      - DJ has a much more flexed lead wrist on the backswing and downswing
      - Austin goes into right pelvic tilt and with more axis tilt on the downswing where DJ maintains left pelvic tilt longer
      - DJ is more rotational while Austin had more "leg drive".
