I have Callaway clubs.  I like the look of the clubs.  The way they feel.  Nice solid hit.  The forgiveness.  They take all the punishment I can give them.

Almost 30% Other!?! I wish I could have picked more than one. 

I fall in that category.  

Driver Callaway

Woods Taylormade 

Hybrid Titleist

Hybrid Driving Iron Maltby

Irons Ping

Sand and Lob Maltby

Putter Evnroll

Favorite Clubs:

  1. 5w SLDR S Taylormade - must replace if ever lost it. Definitely my favorite club. Rarely do I carry a 3w because I love this so much. 
  2. Evnroll ER8 Putter - love it, but have to bench it every once in a while. If ever lost would game something else. (Like a Ping Anser)
  3. Maltby Wedges have Paderson Graphite shafts that I love. Would order new wedges from them again for sure. Only $60 new!

Everything else is replaceable with other items. 

Currently on the chopping block is the irons.

I chose Other because I like to use whatever works best for me. Right now that is lots of Cobra gear due to the Cobra Connect Challenge.

The Callaway Rogue is still in the bag from my first TrueGolfFit fitting.

Well I just swapped out my fairway wood so the bag is Titleist, other than an Adams hybrid & Odyssey putter. Ball is Srixon - half the price of Pro Vs and no performance loss.

I don't like Callaway other than the apparel.

I have a whole scattered mix of clubs in my bag, but my favorite OEM is PING. They (along with Titleist) seem more focused on substance than flash. There was a good example of this on Twitter last night: they tweeted out a video documenting the history of the Turbulators.

[Also, if the word Turbulator doesn't make you start singing the Fried Eggs Golf song about Turbulators, you're missing out.]

The G30 came out six years ago. In golf life cycles, that's an eternity. But the G410 still has Turbulators. That says something important: we've all seen OEMs announce some new "revolutionary" tech that, in the very next iteration of their club, they abandon altogether. The fact that PING continues to employ this tech is a mark of a company that believes that its innovations are actually innovative, and not just marketing flash.

I have no brand loyalty at all. I have always had Cleveland equipment but as of late prefer Titleist. Have swapped over to PROV1 and have not switched, I love my new driver and of course when I think golf I think Titleist, its the Cadillac of equipment.

I've got more brands that I would be unlikely to play than I do true brand loyalty.  Mostly based on a bad club experience or just too gimmicky.

Overall, I am looking for feel and performance.  My top is probably Mizuno, but more for Irons specifically.  If it would be a all around brand, it would have to be Titleist.  I've never been disappointed with their equipment.

Ping might be in there because I think they make quality equipment, but I have never had a Ping club in the bag.

What I like and what I use are 2 different things, I could also put it this way. what I like and what I can afford are 2 different things, ROFLOL.... I would say Im a PING guy. Until a few months ago I was still playing Copper ISI's. But it was time for an update so I got Z585's. Wedges have always been Cleveland's but the Glide 3.0 Eye 2 is a slick wedge too. I also upgraded my Callaway driver and V-steel woods to Ping G410 driver, G400 3wood, 5hybrid, and most recently finished building a Ping G 4hybrid. Putter was a Zing, basically the same ping since I was a teenager. But I wanted a mallet with face tech. So now I play a Cleveland No.11 Huntington Beach.   

That being said, I would play the ping G710's if I could afford them. My woods are exactly what I want shaft and all(pings) Wedges are good don't think id change them. But if I could change one thing I would have a EVNROLL putter.

I also have a whack of different makes in the bag but I still have to give the nod to Mizuno. The care and craft they put into their products is amazing to me. Even if it doesn't work for me it's hard not to be impressed.
 
Ping on the other hand still grinds my gears. However it's because they are so close to being awesome and then don't just get there. Seriously, an amazing driver head line the K/G/I's but garbage shafts to go with them. Wake up an smell the band wagon Ping (aside from White clubs)!

I think the Ping Tour line of shafts is superb. Served me well in my G30 driver. But I get that it lacks some of of the punch of other brands offerings.

Which is crazy to think because it’s built off the elements chrome shaft which is a pretty good shaft and maybe by UST Mamiya. But then again many golfers don’t know who or what most shafts are.

Kinda like my bud Bear and his son. And you would have to know his son to really appreciate this. Both of them got Ping 400 drivers when they first came out. We were waiting on the 1st tee and his son started like a Ping commercial about the turbolators. Now I have that 4 year old Homna--- He asked about my driver. I told him well it was forged by the strictest Japanese standards centuries old and was forged and quenched by the emperor urinating on it 3 times after drinking a quart of ceremonial Saki aged 100 years. It was given to me ( by Bear himself) because the 2 or 3 previous owners could not figure out how to adjust the concentric bushings for loft and lie. Bear was rolling on the tee tears streaming and his son had the deer in the headlights look. Seriously Bear bought that driver on a knockdown deal like $50 or so because no one even with the supplied instructions including him could properly adjust it. And the instructions had English too. I will admit I cheated I used my lie and loft set board with a protractor and the screw out of the adjuster. Set it static marked it them put the bushing in to coincide and locked her down

Well I know it's an old thread but might as well. Right now I'm pretty heavy Mizuno. I have always preferred their irons over anyone. A friend of mine had a Mizuno CLK hybrid and let me try it. He didn't get it back, this thing is crazy good. Then I won a raffle for the ST190 driver and 3 wood so they're in the bag for now and are performing quite admirably. In all honesty though, I have always played whatever fit me best. I'm switching my wedges back to SCOR, my driver before this was actually the Nicklaus ML4 which is a beast of a driver, and I played a Tour Edge XCG7 Beta 3 wood. I wasn't really liking it anymore so I entered the raffle for the Mizuno woods and got lucky. As for the putter, it can change monthly, whatever I'm feeling at the moment. Putted extremely well with a Happy Putter today and it's staying in the bag for a few more rounds.
