"Boutique" vs Major OEM
I've been playing for about 20 years. In that time period I have played just about every major OEM. At specific points in time, I even believed the OEM I was playing at the time was THE BEST. The interesting thing is right now, I look t my bag and the only thing OEM in my bag are my woods. I will put my Sub70 699 irons and my Sub70 wedges up against any OEM irons & wedges. I would also put my Slighter putter up against anyone's putter.
So, with absolute belief that "boutique" manufactures can make great products, can someone help me understand why it seems they trail the OEMs in drivers and woods? I am all about performance at htis point knowing a name is just a name and usually higher cost to offset their marketing costs. I just want clubs that perform for me. In all fairness, I plan to try the Sub70 fairway wood that was mentioned in Golf digest and **** most wanted list. However, it has a huge mountain to climb when it comes to my Epic Flash SZ woods. Like wise, I can't really see ANY driver booting my SIM out of the bag. That being said, does anyone have a different experience and actually game a "boutique" Driver and or fairway woods?
