I have searched every kind of search you can imagine and I still can't find anything on this club. I have looked for the past few days for any information on this and I have still come up empty. The words on the club say Yamaha 4. H-204. 829606. Pure or sure sight. Hybrid Super. Anyone heard of this/know anything about it?

Just a run-of-the-mill old Yamaha 4-wood. Probably not worth more than a few bucks.

I'm assuming it is worth max $10. Is it weird not being able to find information on old clubs or is this a normal thing?

I found two very close versions of this. Is this maybe a prototype of those? Maybe a customized version?

Yamaha Secret X-101 Patent Pending 7 Fairway Wood F436

and Yamaha X300 Compression Carbon Composite Driver. Those look very similar this.

Problem is, craigslist is Full of clubs like those, maybe not the exact club, but there's 1000's for sale, and they have been for sale, in 99% of the ad's for about a year. Then again, who knows, you may get lucky and find someone who's looking for just that club.

I'm not looking to sell it. I'm looking for any information at all about the club.

I haven't even been able to even find a picture of this club.

It happens, probably a very limited production run. I have a set of Wilson Sabres that I have run searches on multiple times over the years and have never found anything other than my own postings. They're not worth squat but I thought I could at least find the lofts but...nada.

It's an extraordinarily rare club. Only made one of it. Back in July of 1986 deep in the jungle of Belize. The club was soon shipped off to Uzbekistan. It has since made it's way to you. Thousands of people would strive for it....I'll give you six bucks for it.

Phew this is a normal thing. This was driving me a bit nutty. [quote name="RJH999" url="/t/76760/what-is-this-club#post_1045574"]It's an extraordinarily rare club. Only made one of it.

I had seen older Yahama FWs (actually with wooden heads), but the Sure Sight is a new one on me. I didn't know Yamaha golf survived long enough to get into hybrids.

    • Not an individual tournament but with a partner(s), sure. Even if it's another low handicapper we can compete if we play well but most likely won't win. I agree with you what you're saying. Most of the club tournaments I play in have a gross division so it's not a big deal. One tournament where I've seen low handicappers have an advantage is a format where teams are divided into flights based on combined handicap. If you win that flight you play against the winners of the other flights in a horserace where strokes are greatly reduced. Most of the horse races I've seen or been a part of of are won by teams from the first two flights, the lower handicap flights.
    • Checked if my shoulders were too flat in a mirror. Apparently not as bad as I thought. I'd like to be more conscious of it before tomorrow's lesson. Going to do a bunch of slow movements through the evening and tomorrow morning then progressively speed up and see if everything still looks reasonable with a full speed swing. . .
    • I've never actually met a golfer who swings differently when under pressure, that is, if he can swing to his handicap at all? Golf starts with a good swing, without that you've got no game.   Yes, but the player is dialing things in at a range. On the course everything is much harder because you only hit any club once per 10 to 15 minutes or something like that.   There's no mental aspect when you have a chance to hit ball after ball successively from the shortest club to the longest one. On the range you're dialed in. That's why many people hit well on the range and not so well on the course.   If you do this with a proper swing, then I'd imagine yes. You'd have a good swing. That good swing in turn will give you more confidence than any sort of motivational speech.   I've never been able to will the ball to go where I want it to, and don't know anyone who can do that without the physical training required to develop a decent swing.
    • This.  Over the years we've heard so much about golf and sports being mental but where are the great tips and instruction on the mental side of the game?  I've read some books on the subject but so far not by anyone who sounded like they actually played golf.  Here's one mental thing that I've done to help my game, imo:   While getting into my address position I look long at my target, glance at the ball to get feet and ball position aligned.  One more good look at the target and when I look back to the ball I begin my swing almost immediately.  This keeps tension from creeping into my muscles by staying too long at address thinking about too many things.  It also seems to help me stay more alert during the swing, rather than getting all tense and just hitting a start/panic button.  To me, this is part of the mental game and is one way the mind can make a huge difference in shot result.
