    No PING for me. Too religious of a family business for my liking.

    I have a UDI in the bag and some SLDRs for friends to play, but I will never buy another TM club. Also PXG, self explanatory. There are better options at a better price.

Throw in Cameron, with $3000 009 putters that are clones of the Scottsdale Anser and that seals the deal for me.




    The prices on the Tour Cameron's are obscene. You could get a beautiful, highly customized Bettinardi/Machine/Byron Morgan/etc for half the price of a run-of-the-mill Circle T. I don't know which I blame more, the manufacturer or the consumers that will pay those extortionate prices. Titleist just rubs me the wrong way for some reason...

    For a long time, I wouldn't play Callaway. I didn't like it when they were building and marketing a non-conforming driver. Won't play PXG because they are overpriced and I think Bob Parsons is a jerk.




    Why don't you like Parsons?




    Google would answer that quicker than I can type it.





    Tm is on thin ice with some recent hollow threats to members here over a leaked pic that was there own doing. Or at best their responsibility. But alas. Their 3 wood still is unbeaten.

    Pxg ? Nah. I’d hear his voice over every shot. No way to have good vibes doing that. Kaboom baby !

    PXG... C'mon man! Get over yourself Bob. They are good clubs, but they aren't THAT good.




    Really want them to sign Tiger to a contract. Not for clubs but for ads. I mean sure toss clubs at him too but c'mon how hilarious would it be if PXG did an ad with him and at the end, Bob looks at Tiger and says "what do you think about them?" and he just looks dead in the camera and holds his tiger head cover and says "They'rrrrreeeee GGGGRRRRRREEEAAAT!"




    Not sure if this was supposed to be funny or not. Either way, you missed the mark.




    Are you high? I LMAO at that.

    Callaway. Nothing about their clubs makes me want to even hit them. Although when I do,I'm invariably disappointed. Drivers in particular, hate having to cut the shaft down to a game able length.

    At one time I used a lot of TM stuff but the constant product releases and the marketing around them really turned me off. I could hit the m4 (or whatever) much better than what’s in my bag and I wouldn’t buy it. Honestly I wouldn’t ever even know because I wouldn’t even try it. Callaway is trying hard to get me to do the same with them. I flip flop on titleist. Sometimes I think they are arrogant and treat their customer like they are doing them a favor selling them clubs. But I honestly really like their clubs when I try them. I like the new ap2 a lot, the 716cb was amazing, and I do currently have their wedges in my bag. I liked them more than anything else I tried. I’m the opposite with ping. I really want to love the clubs but I just never seem to get on with them.

    TM and PXG aren't for me.



    PXG for all the reasons specified.



    TM because way back I tried their wedges for a year and just couldn't take to them for some reason; and since then the marketing approach has just put me off.
  • towncryertowncryer Members Posts: 355 ✭✭
    Geez...good question.



    If I'm being honest with myself, I could put a bag together from any OEM and be fine with it.



    Brands that I typically don't look at are Callaway and TM. Brands that appeal to me are Titleist, Mizuno, and PING.

    Nike & PING. although i'm dressed head to toe in Nike. their gear just doesn't do it for me. I've always looked at their clubs to be cheap looking but do like their apparel. PING clubs just look ugly to me.

    Pretty much this^^^^.....but have to say, even though they are now out of the biz, I could not bring myself to play anything Nike (dabbled a bit w their wedges).
  • McgeenoMcgeeno Members Posts: 1,948 ✭✭
    I’ve played all the brands and this point loved and hated many a club.



    Mostly a Ping fanboy although I’m full Cobra at the moment.



    The only clubs I avoid now are Titleist and that’s because there was a group of 4-5 poseur jerkoffs at my club who played full bags and were douchers. Looked down on anything that wasn’t the latest Titleist club or putter. All the other balls were junk anyone who didn’t use a Pro V was a chop etc.



    A segment of crappy fans wrecked the brand for me haha. Didn’t want to be lumped in with those guys by mistake. Titleist MB players who couldn’t break 80 on their best day.

    I like that they're a privately owned company, but their business and religious beliefs are too intertwined for me. Just a preference; to each their own. Not trying to start a discussion about faith, so I hope this post doesn't get deleted.
