Exactly my point. You're choosing to exclude a brand of product that you admit makes a good product simply on the off chance you don't like the clubs that the resale value is going to be lower than you feel it should be. While you're obviously entitled to do so, I don't think that is a good reason to exclude a company and not even consider them when making future purchases.
We aren't talking about a car or something here, we are talking about a couple hundred bucks at the most, and that's only on the off chance that you don't like the clubs.
Out of curiosity, which irons are you referring to and how much did you pay for them in 2011?
I recently had a tournament and a friend's event all outside in 85+ deg and 90% humidity. The keys for me were to Cooling towel, water, Gatorade, good food (turkey sandwich and banana) and an umbrella. Use all of these early and often. Also if you are walking go at your pace, don't rush to keep up. Take a few extra seconds to catch your breath, wrap your head or get some water.
Finally, I found that taking my hat off in the shade and using some cool water was a big help.
So Mr. 202 has been looping for Matt Every. Not a star, but a guy that has had some success. He has two career wins and had a second-place finish and a third earlier this year. But ...
Now Matt has to answer questions about his idiot caddie and he's missed the cut three of the last four tournaments.
Trey better hope that Matt really likes him.
Not to me. If person buys a new set of irons in the spring, only to find out that he hates them in the fall, he will then take a big hit to make a change. My Pings are from 2011 and they are still worth half of what I paid for them. My son plays TM and loves them. They do make a good product, just too many changes.
