Iron head covers!ūüôą


Recommended Posts

I have used them for over a year. Since my last set of Irons was Purchased (Cobra Forge Tec) and my irons still look great. Most people do not take care of there equipment and that’s up to them, but I want my clubs to still look like new and the only wear I want on them is from them ground and ball impact. Not clanking against each other in the bag riding or traveling. But that’s just my thoughts.

Agree, I like to give my clubs a wash down and good clean after a game. Paid some good money for them and don't earn nearly enough to let them get worse ūüėĀ

iron covers because I'm a cheap SOB.  I figure you use a cover on your woods, why not the irons.

I feel you!!!  I bought a set of Callaway Apex 19 (new).  Didn't immediately by covers and they are beat up as result.  They're forged, ergo soft metal.  Big mistake!!!!

I am a regular and frequent golfer.  I have played in 16 states and 4 countries.

My bucket list is to play in all 50 states. ¬†I am an ‚ÄúA‚ÄĚ flight golfer in my golf club.

Have used Castle Bay covers on all my iron sets since my first set of forged clubs purchased around 1990. As others have stated they keep irons from getting trashed and have better resale. When I switched from forged blades to Taylormade cavity backs I still used Castle Bay OS covers. I sold them for what I paid for them 7 years later. Granted I got them at a great price as older season new stock. But the point is the covers help. Last year bought Hogan  forged Edge cavity backs and got a new set of OS Castle Bays. Easy on and off and their molded shape stays on. Time taken is minimal as I stuff the cover in my right pocket as I go to my ball from the cart-then back on the club after toweling the club clean. Literally a few seconds time. As one other said, I uncover my driver during the round as nothing hits it. And my most used wedge is never covered as all it can hit is other covers! 
Sorry for the long winded post but so glad I’m not the only one using iron covers!

Dam you guys, I have been looking at iron headcovers all day. I like the music of the irons ticking against each other as I walk to the club house. But now with forged irons coming my way I am concerned.

I actually was thinking on getting them just for travel purposes. Airline protection and such. I wouldn't keep them on during play.

.  But recently I purchased a TM SIM 2 driver and it is such a great looking club that I now find myself replacing the head cover after each use.  

 

I've got a SIM 2 Max D and love the color combination especially with the white Airspeeder shaft  Wish they still continued that color combo with the Stealth @

At this time I don't, but my regular playing partner uses covers on his irons. His clubs definitely have stayed nice and worked well in his favor when he traded his old set for a new set of Pings.  My clubs definitely have lived life, when I do go to pony up the big dollars on a new set of irons, I'm definitely going to have to consider covers.

Agree I have heard some horror stories about the airlines and clubs. I do not fly but if I did no way would I trust my prized Mac- Hogans or rusty Scotty to the airlines. I would have to do as I have read some guys do and put together a "travel" set

One of my sometimes Shootout partners has that exact set. He has a set of new Titleist T-100 irons and he is a sort of OCD type guy anyhow. But I will give you guys credit IF and I say IF I would go the iron cover route those are the ones I would get

If this thread's any indication, there are lot's of folks using iron covers.  Now, on to the follow-up question - what type of iron covers?

I am not a fan of neoprene, they wear way too fast.

I definitely prefer leather/pleather, personally I like a zipper on mine, but they're really hard to find in 4-PW+GW+SW+LW.

I like all mine to match!  Craftsman have been on my irons for the past 5+ years

I don't bother with them. It's too much bother for me to take the cover on and off of my driver, let alone my irons.ūüė¨

 

I figure that once you hit a ball with with a brand new, expensive iron, it's no longer new anyway. Because of my trade, I look at golf clubs as tools. I've spent a lot of money for quality tools. There is no way tools can be used and kept looking pristine. Kept in good, working shape.... absolutely. Nicks, scratches and patina are just part of the charm of well used tools... doesn't bother me in the least. That's just me. Anyone that wants to use iron covers, that's cool with me... like you care if it is or not.¬†ūüėā

Correct the neoprene covers are junk - they will stretch and routinely come off, especially riding in a cart where the clubs get jostled around. Next level up are ones that have a velcro fastener  - nicer and fit better. The craftsman covers (in my previous post) are the best since they are a longer sleeve and better quality material. and don't cost much more than the cheap ones. 

I've lost plenty of the neoprene ones but never a craftsman one.

I have these, and have had them for many years. Zippers have never broke.

My sentiments exactly. Lots of times it depends on the course and the area. My course is rough and dry plus being in a Seaside salt and sand environment it is rough on clubs. Those TM CBs I have been playing were pristine and after 25 rounds they are beginning to show some wear and nicks. But like you said nicks patina and scratches give street creed. Now I do wipe off with a wet towel after every shot and keep the grooves clean. And also like you I could give 2 hoots less if someone uses covers or not

PEER PRESSURE wins again. There was some thought behind the purchase though. I ordered iron covers for the new sticks yesterday. Mainly to protect them during travel. Airlines are rough and a 7-hour car trips are no joke on clubs in the trunk either. All I need now are my new irons to show up.
