Does anyone out there have a equipment brand that they keep trying and just can't hit. For me, it's Mizuno irons. I keep reading about how great they are and how awesome they feel, but every time I try them, I can't seem to find the center of the face and get no distance from them. It's frustrating because I love how they look, but I consider it the one brand I just can't hit and always look elsewhere now. I have no issues hitting clubs from any other brands, including Callaway blades I gamed for a year, or my current Titleist AP2s, but I can't hit any of the Mizuno's well. I don't know why. Anyone else have a similar issue?

Honestly since the original Big Bertha Alpha I have not liked the way Callaway drivers have felt or sounded.

I also do not get the along with the Ping or Callaway wedges on full swings.

I have never hit a Callaway product that I liked. Irons, drivers nothing. Although their original HX56 ball was awesome their new Chrome balls just don't seem to go either.

This was going to be my answer. Its the only brand I have to get the most forgiving tech driver. Then when I do that it becomes a high launching super spinny ball that goes no where.

For me it doesn't seem to be brands but specific models of clubs. Probably due to the weighting or some aspect of the club that doesn't match up to my swing. It it is just a mental block based on how I think it feels.

Those shafts also hate my elbows. They are the only shafts I've used that gave me tennis elbow. Very harsh feeling.

For me it's Callaway wedges

I just can't stand over them, never have been able to

Love the aesthetic of the back of the wedge
But the face

It just glares at me

I can't say there is a piece of equipment that I hate right now, but I'm hating my swing inconsistencies...
