Equipment brands you don't get along with

Recommended Posts

For the love of Pete, Taylormade drivers and I don't mesh. I have tried and tried to get along with them because of their looks, but to no avail. I have given up on it. Oh well. I'm more than happy with my Titleist drivers.

PING never seems to work for me. They make a lot of clubs that interest me but for whatever reason they are never the best fit, even going back to their putters in the 90s when they were THE thing to bag.

A trip to the fitter punched some holes in this one as I now have a G400 driver on order and a G30 hybrid in the bag. But I tried the irons again with multiple different shafts and they still felt hard as a rock. i200s look pretty good but they definitely didn't work for me.

Starting to think cobra gear doesn't like me all that much, other than that I'm ok for the most part.

Scratch irons. Been fit for 5 sets. All with different shafts and grinds. Get zero results. But there wedges are unmatched will not play another wedge as long as I can find them. Terrible they went out of business. But there irons have never worked for me. So said.

Even though they are not around in a current retail sense, I could not get down with Nike drivers. I don't remember the model, but the sound off the face of that club was like a gun shot going off at the range. Lol.

Ping irons. Just don't fit my eye. Their drivers are also different sounding. Never tried Cobra or Wilson, but will be taking a look when my irons "need" to be replaced. Wasn't a fan of Mack Daddys or Vokeys from a few years ago. Didn't like the rounded bottom of the face look. MD toe is waaaay too big as well

 

 

You'd be doing yourself a disservice if you didn't test Wilson Staff irons. Great lineup (if slightly disjointed) from top to bottom. The FG Tour driver is pretty good, too. Low spinning and didn't want to hook on me at all...

I agree about the irons being hard to look at, but I've hit the old eye-2 recently and the results are still there. Even at 30 years old the ball still goes.

Cobra golf... Back in about 1992 there was a set of their irons that I really wanted, but never bought. To this day I've never gamed any Cobra club. They've never outperformed something else at demo days or fittings.

I've told myself that no matter how they look when I get fit for new irons the next couple years, I will buy based on what performs best. If that means I've got the biggest, ugliest PINGs out there then so be it.

Titleist clubs for me, I just never feel the performance is there compared to other brands. I mainly think people buy it because it's expensive, and they feel like it turns them into one of the cool kids on the block. Just my opinion though.

I agree with you on both the G400 Driver and i200 irons. Since I suggested the irons to you previously I hit a friends i200 and they were nothing like the rave reviews I've heard. Heck actually liked the chunky G400 irons better.

 

It's wierd the i200 and Titleist AP3 are really a love me or hate'em iron. I don't like either one. I ll take my Ap2 or Hot Metals over both them every day.

All titleist driver are horrible, 910 is the best the rest are ultra spinners.

Anything titleist actually.

Vokeys are good (not great) that's about all from titleist...

Titleist clubs work fine for me. Get fitted with the proper shafts ... brand name on the clubhead will not matter. I have hit about every brand (looking for something better) but always go back to my fitted Titleist or my fitted Scratch clubs. Maybe it is a mental block ... thinking one brand is superior to another. Or maybe just the look at address turns people off.
