Anyone ever try an adjustable all in one club?

Interesting.  Pretty cool concept and it was all good until I saw that the bag (which I had and still do wonder why you need a golf bag if you have an all in one club).  The fanny pack is a definite deal breaker.

Have you ever played an all in one club?  I could just see things going wrong with it and it breaking.

I think it is cool but probably not allowed in tournament play. 

I think it is also too cumbersome to keep adjusting the club before hitting each shot ... unless, someone designs in a numeric button that can automatically set up the club.  I.e, press 7 on keypad and the club sets itself to 7i. 

 

And for @Sante TwoGloves, a club that can switch from left to right hand and vice versa would be even cooler.

Maybe it can call ahead to the clubhouse and order a sammich too! I would be okay with it, think about it, you are walking with one club in your hand (and who can resist that awesome fanny pack) and as you are walking up you can adjust the club.  It would be cool for shits and giggles to go out and smack some balls around at twilight.

That's 'L' for lunch.  Press 'L' and you get a lunch special, and billed to your pre-scanned credit card. 

BTW, we already have an adjustable driver.  The time is ripe of adjustable iron & putter to be more accepted ;-).

Yeesh, these things have been around AT LEAST since the mid 70's. I remember seeing ads in the back of the different Golf mags in the day.

There are variants of adjustable clubs going back much farther as well. http://www.antiques.com/classified/Instruments-and-Implements/Antique-Fishing---Sports/Antique-Antique-Patent-Adjustable-Golf-Club-by-Urquhart

in this video it looks pretty easy to adjust.

that would be cool if it went both ways. lol  i am still recovering from injuring my right hip. just trying a few swings i am able to swing better now right handed. so for now...

 

:-)

if i could get one of these used at a decent price i think i'd like to try it. 8 clubs is too many to carry anyway.

 

all one length too.

The sole design just doesn't work. The mid to longer iron settings are going to have negative bounce and it's going to stick into the ground like a shovel. My wrists hurt just thinking about it.

I had my headphones on and clicking the link made me jump!

That's a pretty modern high tech club.  I had one back in the 70's that had teeth on the hosel and club face.  I would loosen the rusted wing nut and adjust the teeth to a different loft setting and tighten it down. The wing nut loosened up sometimes and the head would fly off during the swing.  I only used it a few times or I would have gotten a lock washer for it.

It had adjustments for each club in the bag.  I think I remember 3 iron thru wedge.  I was just beginning and didn't even know what bounce was.  This was old and rusted then, but it did have a steel shaft.  The grip was an old green thing as hard as plastic.

What did you think of it?

Bad idea. There's a lot more to iron design than loft. Have to consider CG location, head dimensions, sole bounce/camber, offset.

I have one of these. It's a pretty cool toy to tinker around with, but I wouldn't use it to replace my set by any means.  I tend to take it with me on vacation in case I get a chance to hit balls or play.  It's a great club to take on a cruise if there is a hitting bay on board.  I have played 2 nine hole rounds with it and have taken it to the range on several occasions.  I would say for me that it can be difficult to hit the wedges and the putting is not always the best.  On one vacation, I took this, my putter, and a hybrid and had a blast playing an executive type course.

 

if I had to choose buying it again for something to tinker with, I definitely would do so and look forward to playing with this next week on a vacation I am taking.

His butler mentioned that "Rule number 14-3 states that. . ."

His results on the course were not so desirable, but his friend seemed to hit much better.

Anyway, pretty funny! :-D
