  1. Not good. The red does seem too big. How do they get this design so far off? Look at the Adams black irons thread. Those are amazing looking. The TM forged musclebacks are one of my favorite iron heads ever (to look at mind you, I can't hit them for nuthin'). Someone could design a sexy, functional iron. OS was excellent, R7 OK if you don't mind the color. I play the 09 BUrners and like their looks much more than the Burner + or the other models. Maybe the 09's were the exception.

     

    I have a philosophy that every OEM tells their designers to make their super game improvement irons as ugly as possible. I can only reach this theory due to the fact that I haven't seen a good looking super game improvement iron.

  2. Maybe true, but the smaller companies have to do something to get the product noticed by the consumer. Obviously it was not enough. It seems like more people liked the clubs than actually bought them.

     

    I agree with the paint scheme for Nickent. They had to do something to stand out in a crowd of OEM's. Nickent made some good products. My last driver was the 4DX and it was one of the best drivers I have owned. I would still be playing it if it was lower in loft.

  3. What an interesting conversation. That dude with the "195 7 iron" did not buy clubs that day. I got to chat with my buddy the fitter after he left, and that conversation was the basis for my inital question here. It seems that the fellas at my local shop are more impressed by a player that hits his shots a consistant distance and trajectory, not just how far.

     

    I agree...I am much more impressed by watching someone hit shots that are accurate and dead on more than I am by someone who hits the ball a country mile! Distance means nothing if you can't put the ball where you want to.

  4. Monterey is a nice putter. The finish is getting a bad review (deserved?). I had a heavy Monterey that I just sold after it became the latest victim of my Byron 006.

     

    Well, my California Monterey is holding up well. I have only had my putter for a few months now and haven't played a lot, but it puts fantastic and the finish hasn't shown any signs of wear or tear.

  5. I am with sactown...I love coming home and getting a golf magazine in the mail. I came home today and I had my new issue of Golf Magazine and I was like a kid in a candy store. In all reality though with the internet and ease of access to all of the articles online I can't see the paper magazine staying prevalent for that many more years.

  6. Right there with you. He and Poulter are my favorites to watch. Poulter got the win now AK can get it going.

    Them head to head in the Ryder would be fantastic.

     

    I would like to see a Sunday singles match up in the Ryder Cup between those two. Both of them have a ton of energy and passion and watching those two fight it out on the course would be amazing!

  7. With wisdom comes clarity.

     

    As much as I would like to believe I could dodge the heat I will have to keep the black clothes reserved for cooler days as I really don't want to get heat stroke on the golf course. I have been on the verge of it before and it is not a fun thing!

     

    I do appreciate the wise words of wisdom you speak though.

  8. This is what I hope to hear in the forum. I know that avoiding a name because of a perception is silly. I will take them out at the shop if the rain ever stops.

     

    Give them a try...when all is said and done they might not be the best for you, but I really think Titleist has changed some things to make them less of a players club. I love the new AP2's! They are definitely one of the best irons I have hit! If you want a great fairway wood then check out the 909F2...I hit that thing straight as an arrow and long plus it feels amazing! Don't shut them out based on their previous offerings because they are changing things up I think.

  9. Robert Downey Jr. comes to mind. His crazy past never entered my brain while watching Iron Man or Sherlock Holmes. Drugs and jail, now winning golden globe. Fantastic.

    Tiger should get the same opportunity.

    Thanks for making the connection to film. Now I have a specific example to use with the non-golfers when they discuss tiger at work.

     

    No problem! As I was reading everything it crossed my mind that we see celebrities in the news or gossip columns every day and they don't put movies, tv shows, or recording sessions on hold. They just go and do their thing and people forget about it.

     

    You gave a perfect example! Robert Downey Jr. has a laundry list of things he has done, but as you said when I watch Iron Man or anything he is in I don't think about what all he has done. Eventually, when Tiger comes back people will hopefully forget this situation like they do with other famous people.

  10. Is there any love for the Victory red? I like the head shape better than the machspeed, but have not hit it a bunch.

     

    I tested the Victory Red a few weeks ago and it was a pretty solid driver. Unfortunately, the Machspeed wasn't as good for me and it looks like crap compared to the VR and any other driver out there. I just can't go away from my 909D3 right now. The VR Str8-Fit was good, but just wasn't enough to convince me to change.

  11. I like the style of some of the younger guys like Poulter, classic looks and youthful style... a splash of color, or a wave, whatever, seems to go a long way...

     

    Poulter actually has some pretty good designs on his site. I have been tempted to pick up some of the trousers that he designs, but the price is a little high. The Loudmouth designs are a little pricey as well though.

     

    As for the pink pants that Poulter would rock....I would probably sport a pair of pink tartans on the course.

  12. Trousers number 2 get my vote also. Although the hypnotic effect of the colors on the guys you play with may be worth a couple of strokes.

     

    Both of those I posted are from Loudmouth Golf, but the second pair is actually pretty easy on the eyes. They have a few pairs of pants that actually aren't too bad, but there are some on their site that I wouldn't be caught dead in!

  13. I am naturally a fan of the Blackjack finish, but the one that catches my eye is the chocolate bar. I have a Slighter Portland in a similar finish to the chocolate bar...Tom calls his the Seattle Mud finish. The only thing is you have to oil it down after every round which can be tedious, but the look is amazing and there is zero glare from it.

  14. Maybe it is the ultimate form of hero worship. You buy what tiger plays so you can be like Tiger, or another player if Tiger is a no-go for you. This is true for so many consumer goods. Buy what she wears to be like her. Different cars project different lifestyles. The problem with golf is that you actually have to play too. Sometimes I think it works backward too though. I don't even demo Titleist clubs because I don't think I have the game for them. I see the brand a too much of a players club line for me, so I look to Cobra and others that I see as more appropriate. Once I can hit wedge into that 180 yard par 3 then I will look for the AP2s though. Very nice looking clubs.

     

    I agree with the statement that some people want to play what the pros play. There are a ton of people who watch and like you said see what Tiger is playing or Phil and they want what they have.

     

    As for Titleist I used to agree with you. When I saw Titleist I immediately thought they were players clubs. I recently changed that thought though as I tested a 909D3 and 909F2 and bagged both of them. I am by no means a "player" but I hit the 909D3 and 909F2 straighter and farther than any other club I have ever owned.

  15. Black clubs, black bag, black shafts and bags, all black shoes and clothing.

    Ninja golf has finally become a reality. Dig up some of the black Nike promo balls and game is on, but not a soul will know. You are Ninja!

     

    Sorry, I like the color, as long as it holds up to play.

     

    I'm with you completely! Something about an all black club draws my attention. I like the idea of the bag set up you were mentioning. Although you would have to wear an all black outfit which in the summer months might be a painful thing to do.

  16. Golfware, you hit in on the head 100%. I want to see Tiger on the course, and I do not care if he's in the gossip pages or not (because I don't read them). As you said, I didn't like him before because he was a great husband, so I don't care now if he's a bad husband. Obviously, it would be nice to cheer for someone who is infallible - perfect golfer, husband, father, etc, but that's not reality. Tiger, come back soon!

     

    The way I am trying to look at this is we see celebrities galore in gossip all the time, but you never see them lay out of their next film or show. Granted, I think Tiger has taken some proper steps to reclaiming his name and his stance in society, but I think he needs to get back on the course and show the public he is ready to move on from what happened. What happened is in the past and we all know you can't go back and change that.

  17. I just don't see the benefit in having a big head. If you don't have the game to back up what you are saying then it is doing you absolutely no good!! I have always tried to be honest about my game. I am sure there are times I am not certain about things and I might over shoot on distances, but not to the point to where I look like a complete liar.
