    "Game Improvement" irons..... When there started to be big money for OEMS to make with clubs somehow we as consumers drank the Kool Aid and feel the way to a better game is to buy "game improvement" clubs versus working on our swing and fitness. These clubs should be called "distance improvement" irons instead.

    Draw/fade settings on drivers. They do little except put the idea in the consumers head they work as advertised.

    Overrated: Cameron putters -- and I've used one religiously before -- they just don't change much from year to year and I believe a high end milled putter is a high end milled putter

    Underrated: Fresh grips on clubs-- a fresh set of grips can make your clubs feel new and easier to hit
