OEM's - Your South Paw Clubs Are A Joke!!!!!!

Dogg4eagleDogg4eagle Members Posts: 4

Been looking for a replacement set of irons for my Taylormade R7 CGB's for nearly 10 years. Have waited for the release of new clubs over and over that I think I will be in love with after seeing the right handed head only to be completely disappointed when I see the left handed version because it **** near looks nothing like the right handed head. Left handed heads whether a driver or iron are always way too upright for 1 but the size of the head is always much smaller (20%'ish) than it's right handed version and the shape is never even close. Was hoping to buy the Titleist T200 irons and saw yesterday at Roger Dunn's in Seal Beach, CA. The right handed head is so good looking and exactly what I've been looking for all these years (mid size head, narrow heel height, with high, very pointed, square toe. Then I saw the left handed 7 iron......same as every other club I've looked at for 10 years.....much smaller, shape more round than square and nothing close to the high, square pointed toe as the right handed model. OEM's.....when are you going to spend 10 minutes QA'ing the left handed clubs the way you do the right handed models, or better yet, how bout putting a south paw on your QA or design staff and get a true South Paw's eyes on your LH designs because a right handed eye on LH handed clubs is clearly not cutting it and you've been proving that fact for decades. And.....Bubba, Phil and all you other fellow South Paw PGA Tour brudda's with some pull, HOW BOUT SOME HELP WITH THIS CAUSE THAT YOU KNOW IS ABSOLUTELY TRUE. I'll never forgot the story of Gary McCord looking at some South Paw tour players clubs 15-20 years ago and he said, he didn't know how lefty's could play the game with the equipment they have access to......I rest my case OEM's....go ask McCord.

    Another lefty here. I don't notice a difference in heads. Do lefties have less clubs to choose from? Yes. Are the sizes/shapes different than their righty counterparts? Doubtful.

    I have the Apex Pro 19s and they are exactly the same as the righthanded version of that model. If I wanted the Apex MB irons I could get them as well. Some companies have limited choices for lefties on the product lines. It's just that there are less lefties than righthanded players so it's a matter of controlling production costs. Ping, Titleist and Callaway generally have an adequate supply of leftie clubs for good players and those who aren't. Years ago I used to buy Mizuno irons, but they limit their lefthanded equipment to the point where I have moved on to Callaway as my primary equipment company.

    Yeah I like my lefty stuff. Not sure what the issue is. Sometimes there's limited availability on certain models but I feel it's overblown

    Another lefty here - I cannot relate the OP here. I don't feel my equipment is any different than the right handed versions. My gripe is we only have a limited selection to choose equipment from, but such is life as a left handed person.

    I mean, it has to be mirror image molds, right? Perception problem, get your eyes checked.

    I was wondering if I was missing something because I have never noticed any difference in construction with my clubs vs right handed versions. So I really have no clue what OP is talking about.

  • mantanmantan Members Posts: 2,584 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    I was paired up a few weeks ago with a guy who had right-handed irons...but left handed woods and putter. Said it was because he couldn't get the irons he wanted in left and played the same from either side.

    So I use to have the Ping i210s, ended up going with Srixon z-forged. My lefty friend got the i210s and I “felt” they looked a little chunkier (wider sole, plus a tad larger) then my right handed i210s that I had. Could be that my current srixon blades are just smaller and gave me that perception that the lefty i210s were a larger club. I get what OP is saying, but I just can’t see how a manufacturer wouldn’t just make a mirror image of a righty iron except left handed. That being said, A+ troll post.

    Lefty checking in. Can't relate to OP. Only gripe I have when it comes to equipment is Mizuno irons...I love them but the company doesn't love us back...


    Ran across this today. Finally!

  • JohnKHawkJohnKHawk Members Posts: 760 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Another lefty here. I have purchased many an iron set & when I compare to right handed set of the same iron I never noticed anything other than they are mirror images of one another.

    Only in the mind of the OP. His first post in 7 1/2 years. What a doozy. Proof again that posting while drinking is not a good combination. And yes I am a lefty golfer and have posted multiple times about the alleged "lack" of left hand gear available today.

    1, wtf is an OP.....#2, how the F am I trolling if I've made one post in 7 years LOL......clueless. Go to your local golf shop and pull out say a Ping G400 Max LH driver and RH driver and sit them facing each other, or grab an M2 and do the same thing, the T200 irons, etc. Then if you still can't see it with your own eyes take a cloth measuring tape and measure heel to toe length, sole to toe height, length from top line of face to back line of the top of the head for visual size of club head at address......I rest my case! And I guess McCord is clueless and has no idea what he's talking about either. Oh and again Scotty, how about a T22 Terrylium model offering for us South Paws.....not a single LH offering in a classic line like that........unreal.....

    OP......when every lefty that has posted in the thread doesn't share your conclusion (other than a lack of models ie mizuno) you are probably on a lonley path to no where.
    Also when did McCord say this?

    Lefty here as well. Just bought a new m1 head of the bay. Side by side with my friends right handed m2, they are identical from the top. So I have no idea what you are talking about OP. But, I don't believe that all of humanity will be dead in 10 years from climate change as all the demonrat presidential candidates think, so who the h e l l am I. Lol
