I loved my AP1's. I sold them and recouped a good deal of the originally investment for the amount of rounds, and abuse they took.
Will the TM's do that? HELL No. They're simply running out the clock replacing clubs until the 2 year warranty is up then you're screwed. I plan on thoroughly testing the replacement irons I received today, and if I see any sign of future failure I will become the biggest pain in the ass until I get a full refund. I, like everybody here, have serious bills to pay, and don't take lightly what I spend my money on. I have never had, or heard of, faces on irons caving in. It's unacceptable and it is a major design flaw. As an Engineer I am embarrassed to have TaylorMade in my bag. I really do not want these clubs anymore, but I guess I am stuck until these inevitable fail.
Really the only way they can save me as a customer for the future would be to issue me a refund and an apology, but whatever. F**K TaylorMade for now.
So I was in one of those dual level driving ranges, hitting from the bottom range. You probably already know how this ends but I started working on my extension in the follow through and sure enough I nailed the heating vent at the top. This is the damage now on the top of my club. I can't really tell anything different when swinging it even though it is interesting that the Epiq with the already strange sound now makes a different sound on contact. Is this something I should be concerned with?
I remember my father getting more and more into his short game as he got older. He never could hit drivers due to a back injury in the 70s, but for whatever reason his easy swing just worked so well with irons. The older he got, the shorter his shots got, but he kept working on accuracy. And I fear the putter, always have lol
I also think that the perception by men is that "they" are better than the women professionals so why would i watch the women play any sport that i can be just as good at. I don't agree with this, but I think that it might be a reason men do not watch much women's sports.
