    On a serious note, from the same reliable source, I have been told the second “big name” that is already a done deal for Honma is Paul Casey and they are trying to secure Molinari as well.

    I do not consider Paul Casey a great catch for Honma . One win in how many years ? <br />
    Now Molinari would be a great catch but I cannot see him leaving Nike and the freedom of playing whatever club he wants .

    Older would sum up the demographic that Homna seem to be going for to be fair. Not many 20 years old's will be able to afford the price Honma seem to be charging.

    A real coup for Honma. TM must be needing to shed players to keep Rory's contract going.

    Justin Rose isn’t moving the needle for iron sales. Him playing Honma will have marginally more impact on iron sales than if I switched. <br />

    Here in the US, the Tour World series is very competitively priced with the rest of the OEMs.

    Well, I didn't buy Nike because Tiger was playing them, I didn't buy Nike because I knew Nike wasn't making Tiger's clubs.....It's a cat/mouse game in club manufacturing......lol

    Going by his Twitter it is certain that Justin Thomas is not changing things up any time soon.<br />

    Not much of a change and it might not actually be anything but going by his Instagram, Justin Thomas was practicing in Hawaii wearing RLX as opposed to Polo. More of a sideways move than a move but something potentially.

    Read all of this thread and yall are cracking me up. Do any of you REALLY buy gear based on a player? I do think the marketing strategies of OEMs is interesting but as a semi older guy, seeing my old heroes do their changes through the years and the players of my age do the same, it proved to me gear sponsorships mean squat other than driving the price of cool gear up to pay endorsements which I don't want to contribute to. How many old dudes on your course do the "Ricky" look at 45-60? If so, please please post the pics for my laughter...but they have to have the Puma gear AND the Cobra gear. <br />
    <br />
    The thing I like about WRX is how so many members have strong opinions based on their personal experience with gear and results rendered by usage. Kinda supports my statement above.

    That would be disappointing, I find the Polo line to be a lot classier and mature than the RLX stuff.

    I would say that most of us don’t buy based on who plays what as opposed to just generally being gear heads and finding this interesting. I could literally care less what the new TM drivers do but I enjoy the excitetment about new products so I follow those threads. You don’t have to find it interesting. There are plenty of other topics in which you can participate.

    Sometimes what they don't play has more of an impact.<br />
    <br />
    I'm guessing the absence of mizuno drivers on tour has had a big effect on their sales over the years. The narrative that good golfers won't play them is tough to overcome if you're picking 5 from 10 on the rack to test.

    I said I do find it interesting my friend. I get it....gear junkies and fun. Somewhere in the grey middle is the truth I am sure on player influence on sales and what not as they do have impact. Maybe the proper view would be new golfers/average golfers vs the salty seasoned crowd here?
