What's the most underrated equipment in your bag? Is there something in your bag that maybe hasn't gotten a ton of love in the golf community either with players or reviews? For me I am finding that Adams made some really great equipment especially right before the Taylormade purchase of them. I bought a brand new Adams XTD Ti 3 wood and 5 wood for $30 bucks each...got an Adam Pro Red hybrid for $40 and have the XTD Ti Driver in route to the house purchased for $50. I am really amazed at these items...great sound and plenty hot...great stock Matrix shafts as well....what are your thoughts?

Cobra. We did this conversation a while back. Sometimes the search doesn't bring up the best results. But anyways I think cobra has he most overlooked Equipment right now.

I'd have to say Mizuno. They have some great equipment, and their irons are second to none. You never hear anything about them, though.

Love the look of Mizuno irons. The jpx are a little too bulky for me, but I'd love some mp-25s.

 

Happy with my vapor pro combos though, pretty similar in looks with the mp-25, wonder how the feel compares

I would have to say Wilson considering their past history. I know they fell from sight for a while but I believe they are on the comeback trail. The golf business is funny today. Seems that most folks I see play the most advertised clubs or hyped up clubs what ever the latest greatest thing of the month. I guess that is marketing 101 today. I was never die hard brand loyal even though I am a Macgregor collector. I can remember playing irons and wedges until they wore out. I have worn out 3 sets of irons in my lifetime all of them different brands. I played the Mac VIPs on and off since 90 and they are worn slap out. Now I do have a set of pristine ones just like them but have not switched the shafts out yet because I discovered the 2013 X forged Callys I am front line gaming now. One of they guys at my club remarked "they must be special made Stuey switch from Mac blades" yep they are. I still play old Mac blades in my vintage golf though a set of 53 Mac Toski irons. Look at my signature I play a very mixed bag compared to most MGSers. I play what works for me do not care about the hype or age or brand

One of the sets I stated I wore out in my previous post was a set of MP-33s of course I was playing comp and playing or practicing every day. Those were the best feeling Mizunos to me not too buttery and not too hard. After that I went back to my Mac VIPs

Agree with Wilson Staff. I have a couple of the D200 hybrids and they are terrific. I had the 3h at the range yesterday and it was almost tough not to get it out straight and far. Didn't feel as nice at impact as my Apex but results trump feel every time.

 

I've had a couple sets of their irons in the past as well and have nothing but good things to say.

 

I view WS and Tour Edge in the same light; very solid equipment that some how doesn't make it in the average guy's bag.

Mizuno?

 

I'm sorry but I can't buy into them as under rated. Say Mizuno and people think "oozes quality" - see Mizuno in a guy's bag and people think "player".

 

We've had this discussion a number of times - I like Wilson now - used to be Adams for sure.

My $35 Taylormade Jetspeed 2 Hybrid. They should have named them Taylormade Rocket... oh wait...

 

Most consistent "long" club I have.

How many Porsche commercials do you see vs Ford commercials? Quality doesn't need to advertise.

 

I read an article about Pabts Blue Ribbon vs Budweiser a while back. The amount of money Bud spends on advertising could run PBR for eternity. And the money that PBR doesn't spend on advertising is spent on actually making the beer.

 

And they are both equally disgusting.

If we could get back to the original question of what's in YOUR bag that's underrated. For me it's my Adams Speedline 3wood. Doesn't get near the credit she deserves. Paid $15 for it best club in my bag (that I'm hitting right now)

... Cleveland 588TT iron's without a doubt. Best combination of a players iron and forgiveness I have ever played. I love my Fly Z+ but keep coming back to the TT's. The topline is a little thicker than most players irons but they are a nice head size between mid-standard and the performance is second to none. The soles look wide but they are beveled like the Srixon Z Series, just rolled off instead of a V. The TT stands for TourTrajectory and I find that a good description as they are easy to control hitting high or low with equal aplomb. But oh my are the mid/longer irons forgiving and yet the short irons are surprisingly accurate. These just went under the radar and I am always looking for another new or pristine set as a back up. 

... Edit: I should also mention my Adams LS hybrid with (gasp!) the stock Kuro Kage Black hybrid shaft. It is by far the oldest club in my bag besides my putter. I don;t like the white color or the slot on top that fills with grass, but I just haven't found anything that performs as well.

Oh, in your bag. I guess I misread that part. Probably my Cobra Fly-Z hybrid. I usually give credit to my clubs that deserve it. The ones that don't go in to timeout...

I've got an Adams tight lies2 3 wood, 25$ brand new at golf town! I would recommend this club to everyone. I find it unique as the head is very thin compared to most woods on the market and I find it easy to hit off the deck. That sound and feel is amazing and it's a very consistent club I have in my bag and I'm sad that Adams won't be making any new models in the future :(

Adams does make some of the best HYbrids time after time. A real tool I (try not to) play with can bomb it. 300 when he manages it but literally couldnt pull a Fairway Wood out of his bag. Got tired of his wining for the last 2 years and sent him a link from Hurricane Golf for a $39 Adams Hybrid 18*/2 wood with a 72gr Grafalloy.

Much bs followed but he did buy it. 240+- straight as a board.

Was willing to beat him with his lack of prowess from 225 out but the silence about his sorry wood play is worth the yardage he has finally found.

Wilson will be one to look into as well.

      I'm getting rid of my seemore pure center blade putter I've owned for 2 years (purchased summer 2017). I am asking $120 OBO including shipping. If I don't have a lot of interest it will go on eBay. 
      Putter is in near mint condition. See actual photos of the putter below. Has additional weighting in the head as well as counterbalancing in the grip, length is 34.5".
      Paypal is my preferred payment method.
      Directly below is a list of the complete specs on the putter when I ordered it. Thanks for looking!

      I have been using my new MG2 for a few weeks now and really like the feel. I have 2 other Taylormade wedges that I have used for the last few years and this one just feels different. It also passes the eye test as I seem to be getting more spin on the ball than I have before with the other wedges. Would like to know others thoughts on them. Thanks.

      Hello all! Thought I would chime in on this putter since I've owned it for a few months now.
       
       
      I had been using a Ping Ketch mallet putter since the beginning of the year. (I am relearning the game left handed this year due to a back issue and decided to do so with the putter as well) I had been putting fairly well with it but found it a bit hard to line up and I didn't love it, like all putters I have owned. I saw the testing and reviews on this putter and decided to buy it online sight unseen.
       
      I tend to like a longer putter and got it in the 35” model.
       
      (Aside: A member of the forum let me know that it could be bought here in Canada on golfworks.ca as we don't have Dick's here, so thank you whoever you were. It was $130 Canadian. It arrived super well packed, maybe better than any other golf club I've ever gotten in the mail. There were two small scratches on the putter shaft. I decided to email golfworks and see what they had to say about it. The service was incredible and the best I've ever had online. They got back to me within an hour with an apology and said they would ship out a new one that day and they had a shipping label for me to return mine with. For me the scratch's weren't a big deal and I offered them to refund me $15-20 and I'd keep it. They did me even better and gave me their cost on it and refunded the difference! Unreal service. I will buy all my grips etc. from them going forward.)
       
      Ok, back to the review!
       
      The putter fit my eye immediately. I have only ever had one other golf club where I just knew I was going to hit it well and that I'd love it at first sight. It was a Cobra knockoff driver I won in the 90's in a closest to the pin contest. This putter was the same way. I just knew I was going to love it and play well with it. I have played ten rounds so far and only six three putts. My first round with it I swooped and won three skins with a twenty foot putt and did it again later in the round with a thirty five foot putt for three more skins (The guys weren't mocking me anymore for having a Tommy Armour putter after that haha)! I do not normally sink many long putts. My longest previous this year wouldn't have been any longer than fifteen feet.
       
      It is really well balanced, the pistol grip is actually very comfortable (I may replace it with something different down the road, we'll see) and I think it looks good. The head cover I can't say the same for, it's pretty ugly and doesn't fit on that well. That's a fairly minor issue, especially considering the price and performance of this putter. 
      On long putts I can easily line it up and it's no different on the short ones. The feel is just right for me, not too firm and not too soft, so they got the insert just right.  I just have so much confidence with this thing that I can't say enough about it. I would have paid five times as much if I knew it was going to make this kind of difference in my game. My putting stats show that I've dropped almost four strokes off my rounds. I was averaging thirty six PPR and now it's down to thirty two I took no lessons and used no training aids. It was all the putter. If someone would have told me a putter would shave three to four strokes off my game I would have laughed at you! 
       
      Bottom line is I love this putter. What a value the guys at Dicks have come up with....they made a world class putter for the $100 range. Thank you MY GOLF SPY, without this site I would never have given this a chance. You saved me spending $400+ on an Evenroll, so thank you guys for that.
       
      Looks – 7/10
      Feel – 9/10
      Alignment – 10/10
      Value – 11/10
       
      Overall – 9/10 – I highly, highly recommend this putter.

      When it comes to PING many things come to mind, quality, engineering, performance and irons are among the first things most people will think of.   And with the release earlier this year of the G410 irons, PING has hit on each one of those characteristics. 
      Following the huge success of the G400 irons, PING has hit a home run with the striking black and red colors of this iron, as well as a being a bit more streamlined in all the right places.   PING has achieved the rare feat of providing an iron that has a profile appealing to even the most discerning of golfers, but yet still offering the forgiveness and help that higher handicaps look for. 

      We are looking for three forum members to join staff member Golfspy_Stroker in testing, reviewing and keeping a set of these G410's built to their custom specs.  Testing will require a nearly two month commitment of putting the irons in play on the course, at the range and providing ongoing commentary in the forum thorough out the process. 
      As an extra bonus to the irons, the selected testers will have the option to choose Golf Pride Tour Velvet grips equipped with Arccos.  The clubs will come with a 99 day free trial to arccos.  After that the tester would be responsible for paying for the subscription in order to continue it.   It will be a great way to add data to your review. 
      PING has opened this testing to all golfers regardless of country of residence.   All you have to do to be eligible for the testing is follow the below instructions.
       
      In a post in this thread please provide the following information...AND DO NOT QUOTE this post when replying!
      First Name/State or Country of residence
      Handicap
      Current irons in Play
      The carry distance of the your 7 iron
      That's it.   Good luck to everybody
      We'll be selecting the testers within the next 10 to 14 days, so check back to see if you've been selected!

      Lynx Golf Continues Momentum with Launch of LynxGolfUSA.com, Release of Black Cat Lines
        (Weybridge, Surrey, UK) – Lynx® Golf – the iconic equipment brand trusted by multiple major championship winners over its storied history – unveils LynxGolfUSA.com, a new website providing American golfers access to the manufacturer’s innovative lines, including the new Black Cat Series.

      Launch of the site coincides with new social media channels, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and will feature unique blog content, newsletter sign-up and more. Bolstering the introduction of the new site and social media channels is the U.S. debut of the latest generation of the famed Black Cat line, which delivers leading-edge technology in an attractive and classic aesthetic.  
       
      “The U.S. site is the latest step in our journey to bring this iconic brand back to a place of prominence in the American golf market,” says Stephanie Zinser, CFO and co-owner of Lynx Golf. “Black Cat is the perfect series to accompany our website and social launches as golfers have fond memories of previous iterations, but that nostalgia will quickly be replaced with modern performance that maximizes both distance and accuracy.”
       
      The Black Cat line features innovations unique to the Lynx brand: Effective Energy Transfer – Each driver, fairway wood and hybrid are engineered with proprietary technology designed to disperse energy across the club face, offering greater forgiveness on off-centre hits.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Weight Bar System – Found in the line’s driver and fairway woods, the system transfers weight from the front to the back of the clubhead, giving players control over their preferred launch and spin rate.                                                                                                                                                                             Hollow-Head Technology with Variable Face Thickness – Each iron distributes weight across the hitting surface while a polymer-filled hollow cavity in the head allows for one of the thinnest forged faces in the industry. This provides more effective energy transfer across the face for increased ball speeds and a higher, more stable MOI throughout the set.  Over the past several years, the Lynx brand has made a resounding impact in the U.K., as the company has recorded double-digit annual sales increases every year since 2013. This growth has been driven by several successful products which will be featured on LynxGolfUSA.com including the popular Prowler VT irons, Prowler Forged irons, and Tigress line of women’s clubs.                                    
      “Without our success in Europe and around the world, days like today are not possible” says Steve Elford, CEO and co-owner of Lynx Golf. “What golfers are about to see and experience in the U.S. started nearly a decade ago when our team set out to restore the glory once associated with the iconic brand.”
        
      Founded in the 1970’s by John Riley Sr. and Carl Ross, Lynx® Golf quickly established a massive fanbase among the game’s best players. This included legendary ambassadors who trusted the brand to help them capture victories at the 1992 Masters and 1994 US Open, among other wins.
       
      Lynx’s renowned product lines include everything from TOUR-caliber clubs, such as the Prowler VT irons, to products geared for mid-to-high handicappers. At the professional level, the brand continues to draw talent, as its ambassadors include the legendary Dame Laura Davies and former European Tour standout, and current Sky Sports TV presenter, Nick Dougherty, as well as LET players Lydia Hall, Becky Brewerton and Trish Johnson.  
        About Lynx® Golf
        
      Lynx® Golf concentrates on developing high quality, technologically-advanced but affordable golf clubs, backed up by great customer service. In the UK, it has gained a strong foothold in ‘green grass’ golf accounts – retail operations typically run at golf courses by PGA Professionals - with clubs designed and assembled in the UK at the company’s Weybridge, Surrey, headquarters.
