I think you can thank PXG for the ultra-high price sets that you see coming out.
Titleist has a C16 in limited production that "only" runs about $2,700 (steel) or $3,000 (graphite) sets 4-PW

Man, are those irons ugly.  I have the driver and think the woods and hybrids look good.  But no way would I get those irons, even if I could afford them.

I may be hijacking this into the overly expensive clubs thread - but there is an article in golfweek magazine online about TPI JPHarrington wedge fitting $2,000 for 3 wedges.

I demo'd the driver.......I now have a new favorite driver (and the shaft that came with it - I don't know which made the difference, but that combo was FANTASTIC).

Now I just have to wait a couple years so I can buy it on clearance.  No way am I spending that much.

You have got to be kidding! Who are these guys even marketing to? I'd say probably less than 20% of avid golfers could afford this.

I've seen the pix and read the hype. Is the Epic really anything more than the 2015 Big Bertha irons with fancier tail fins?

Pricewise, maybe the Epic will make the $1,200 Apex and BB irons seem like a good deal?

There are plenty of wealthy people who play golf. And, if they catch the eye of a Tour pro, the sky's the limit!

Just like Cadillac, Beamer, and Mercedes, don't bother marketing to the lower 80%. Yet, they still make plenty of money!

Quality over quantity! I understand the concept, but 2 grand for 3 wedges? There's no way they out perform vokey or any of your other major wedges enough to warrant those kind of prices! That's just my opinion. You're 100% correct there are people with money to blow who will buy them just to say they did. IMO it's all about the player. Spieth for example could take any wedge and most likely perform better than I ever will be able to. Which I'm sure you will agree to some extent. Just blows my mind at the cost!

No doubt, East Texas! Remember the outdated term "status symbol"? The next iteration of that was "conspicuous consumption". With the language changing as rapidly as it does now, I have no idea what they would be called these days!

I've seen people play very well with the old Adams Tom Watson three-pack wedges (G, S and L for $99 total).

Exactly my point. One of the guys I play regularly with doesn't own a single name brand club... (minus a 6 iron that's a old dci) still he is one of the best golfers I've ever seen swing a stick. Consistently mid 70s and it blows my mind that he does it with a bag full of garage sale clubs. When I seen that I myself realized that at times I chase that name! But still every new club I buy I expect it to automatically knock 15 strokes of my game.

You guys would be amazed.  My fitter that I am friends with tells me about guys going in and having to use 4-5 different credit cards to pay for a set of irons from him.

It's like Heroin for some.

    • I did tell him to f*** off and worry about his own ball he just talked more shit after...Short of having fist fight with an old man that's about all I could do.  And yes I have called rules violations on folks before, but generally try to help fellow competitors as much as possible during competition. I've been playing in these money tournaments for about 3 years now and it has 120+members and I have never played in a foursome during a tournament where someone was blatantly pulling this.  I assumed there was some rule against it since I haven't had someone try that before. I asked the question and you guys answered, and I honestly didn't thank my manhood or ability to " handle it as a human" would come into question. I think the topic is now over, and ask that you please close the thread unless you folks aren't done attacking me yet.  
    • This reminds me of the episode on Bewitched where Darrin and his boss Larry take a prospective client golfing. The client is addressing his ball and Darrin asks if he inhales or exhales on his backswing and it totally messes the guy up to where he cannot function anymore. Hoses his game.
    • Good grief, man.  Toughen up a bit.  Like @iacas, @David in FL, and others have already indicated: tell the guy to shut up or get over it.  Why is it only in golf do people seem to be so weak-minded?
    • Thanks for posting. I can edit the title for you with the name of the cart if you would like. It would make it easier for folks to find. Also, more picks would be a nice addition.
    • No. Seriously, Matt. Tell the guy to shut his trap or suck it up and/or laugh off his attempts. Jeezus. If it’s this easy to throw you off I almost can’t blame him at all. Handle it. One way or another. If you couldn’t handle it as a human I doubt you could handle telling him he broke a rule if that was the case.
