Strangest Metal Woods Ever?


Recommended Posts

To avoid confusion, I have removed the sale price and buy now buttons from the Facebook posting about these.

Has anyone ever seen as strange of a wood head as these?  Definitely not a brand I have heard of before and I happened to come across them on Facebook Marketplace.  All 3 had the same indented sole feature.  I didn't include pictures of the face of the clubs because it looked like a regular wood. 

Oh!  I almost forgot, all three shafts had a different flex listed on them.  An L, an R, and an S.

Seem like some gimmick non USGA legal stuff to me, but that’s not based on any kind of personal experience. Definitely takes the cake on strange marketplace find!

Remember them. Timeframe was probably 90s early 2000s. Burrows golf had a complete line of clubs and pretty sure they all have the power sphere.

Don't want to threadjack, but I was searching the internet for information about PGF (which for some reason I was reminded of with this topic) and one of the links that popped up was this.  Thought it wasn't too out of place here.

I actually have those in one of my old sets. I have the 3 and 5 woods in stiff flex. They actually play very well. Ill have to try them again as soon as the weather gets better.  The golfball fits into the sphere. So you can throw a ball down on the tee box, place the club over the ball and roll it over to where you are going to tee it up. It makes people look!

I was going to say Bridgestone/Tourstage but I was thinking the same thing.  Id sworn Ive seen some JDM offering with a similar design.  Zen also had a putter with a similar design.

Definitely unique and one I've never seen. In a way, we all owe tribute to the designers of such novel and crazy designs.  They were akin to freeway rumble strips keeping the industry from going into the ditch.
