    So I went through Club Champion for my P790’s. Was told 2 weeks. I will be interested to see how it works out. I have good confidence in them. We will see. I will report back.

    I ordered a Black Tour Spider 34.25 inches and 2* flat on Friday 13th thru Discount Dans and received it today. It had a CUSTOM ORDER! sticker on the outside. It is perfect. No problems for me this year with TM.

    Just checking back here. Are you referring to my BST posts? If so, yes I list stuff for sale. But you'll see that none of it is high end custom stuff. Probably why it never sells. Usually an off the rack Putter or Wedge or fairway wood. I hate keeping extra clubs around so I'll sell them. But I'm moving more towards trade ins as it's better use of my time.



    I certainly look for the best clubs for my game and I think I have a set that now works. But I also not one of those people that runs out to get the next new toy and then sells is a week later when I can't hit it due to lack of skill.




    Why do you care what other people do? How does it affect you in any way?



    Why even come on a golf enthusiast forum if you're going to be this judgmental toward other golfers? Seems odd to me.

    TM missed the date on a bag that I had ordered as well...for over a month. I’m hearing that the TP Black Copper line was B/O the day they released. Can someone that is familiar with their business plan explain how you turn a company around when you don’t have any product to sell?

    I'm not thumbing through 5 pages of people not understand basic business logistics, but some don't seem to understand that you creating a huge surplus isn't the best money decision



    vote with your money, if theyre that much of a pain in your a**, buy some sm7's

    Even better! If you’d bother reading the thread (before commenting), you’d have seen that they’re not only B/O tons of product, BUT they’re also missing their dates substantially. And, if I wanted SM7s, that’s what I would’ve ordered...thanks for the tip though.

    right.... they're messing all this stuff up and you're bag is still full of tmade. They care a lot more about their bottom line than some 'scathing' post on golfwrx

    TM’s product is head and shoulders above everyone else’s...their problem is either supply chain or business plan.

    Wouldn't say that is the case anymore. In fact I would say they have fallen behind in quality.



    Cracking faces on drivers, inserts on irons falling off, and iron faces caving. Guessing the long waits for delivery is not due to stringent quality control.

    TM staff got way too cool for school a few years ago and I may be wrong, but it truly seemed like the brass told people, “look, we are top dog now. You don’t need to be kind, go the extra mile, or be friendly to anyone. That includes your biggest accounts or direct customers.”



    When our account was shipped four sets of irons last year that we didn’t order, I asked for an RS label and a credit for our account. When asked to prove it, I forwarded the inside rep the email he verified with our pre order in it. His boss then asked us to “give it a month and try to sell them”. After a month, I asked for my RS label and credit, and the inside guy said they don’t usually send shipping labels for returns. After I explained to him that I didn’t ask for the irons in the first place and it was their mistake, he never responded to further emails and I was forced to pay to ship them back.



    TaylorMade makes nice clubs and I used to play a lot of their gear, but since I got deeper into working in the industry, I can’t stand the way they do business internally.

    I received my custom putter with paint missing between the face insert and body (small white line where black paint had clearly flaked off during/after production). I've called twice - first time was told to buy my own paint from a website, second time (after the website given didn't have the paint) I was told to reach out to continental golf. I'm still perplexed as to how this is acceptable on a $300 putter I didn't even hit yet.

    If you honestly ask any of the retailers, if they sell any volume of irons, they know. Actually, I hit TM woods, own a good chunk of Callaway stock (for 20+ years), haven't had a Callaway club in the bag since the mid-90's......Bitter? NO, NONE of the clubs out there are built with super quality control. They are mass produced on an assembly line, even the clubs that WRX'ers claim came from the Tour rep.......LOLOL
