  1. Thanks for the input. ? Yes, according to the manufacturer the sandy soil in Hawaii is the major reason for this. The CEO was kind enough to contact me and confirmed that the designer had commented after a trip to Hawaii that the sandy soil would be an issue for their finish. As many have said and I agree with, the great feel and performance has not been effected. Since my model is no longer in production they offered to forge a couple new heads for me at a reduced price, but I told them I didn't need that as the new clubs would just do the same thing. And since it is deemed normal wear and t
  2. > @xxio said: > Is it eating into the metal? If not, it could just be some sort of clear coat. The fitter thinks it’s a coating they put on the SS before the satin chrome finish is applied that is showing. It’s a bronze color.
  3. > @golow said: > I had chrome peeling on 714 AP2s (2 clubs).... Titleist replaced whole set, custom shafts, specs no questions asked. Same model was available. Peeling was worse and more obvious than your finish wear to be fair. > Thanks for your input. The fitter/dealer says the set should and probably will be replaced with the new model. I’m waiting to see if that’s the way it goes. The heads are very similar and weigh exactly the same. I don’t know the difference in the grind but they are both muscle back blades.
  4. > @justasgood said: > > > We had a** conference call setup** today, but one of the participants could not make it. My questions are, what is this issue, why did it happen, if the heads are refinished will it happen again? What is the difference in the new heads? What are my options? I am not planning to be unreasonable or a hardass, I just want options so I can make the best choice. > > Holy cow! A conference call? Did you pay 1 million dollars for these? Are you part of the R&D? It's unusual wear....period. Nothing fatal of endangering the health of you or anyone e

Due to inventory which is usual with most brands after a year or longer depending on when the model was released they can’t do a 1 for 1 replacement.

  6. Thank you for your thoughts although I disagree that going to the range once or twice a week and playing once or twice a week is a lot, but I'm sure to some it seems that way. It seems some of you have the wrong impression. I am not looking for perfect irons after playing with them or taking them to the range. I don't use head covers on my irons. I don't mind if they bang into each other. I don't mind if they are scratched up. Golf is played against the ground. Stuff happens. No problem. The manufacturer says there is a flaw as shown in the wear pattern. Not just me, the manufacturer ad
  7. > @dmbrill719 said: > A customer service rep agreeing to replace clubs under warranty does not necessarily mean there's actually a warranty issue with the clubs. Often times it's done just to keep a customer happy so everyone can move on with their day... Yes, that's possible, but doesn't seem to be the case here. Thanks.
  8. > @"the bishop" said: > If its a plating issue will they agree to refinish them for you? If the two clubs pictured are the ones you use the most as you mentioned the grooves look great. Might be a PITA to send them back but if they don't have that model to replace with then they don't. So your choices would be what you have: take what they have or live with it. Refinishing would give you the option of keeping what you like. Thanks, yeah could do that. Good suggestion.

You call a bucket or 2 a week a ton of balls? I don't have a complaint as much as a question of how to proceed. Thanks.
  10. > Is that from a range with a lot of sand in the topsoil? I have a sand wedge that I practice with and it did the same thing pretty fast. Now the complete sole and most of the face look like that, but way worse. I won’t use my actual wedges to practice bunker shots. The soil has sand in it. It's not clay or hard soil. I'm not hitting out of a bunker. It's a grass range. I've had sets from other manufacturers that have not done what these clubs are doing. This is not normal wear and tear according to the manufacturer or they would not say it is a defect and it's covered under warranty
  11. > @Georgewang said: > I am still trying to figure out what is wrong the the clubs... Look at the bottom of the face just above the leading edge out by the toe. There is a yellow area where the finish is gone and the metal is eroded for lack of a better word. Largest area on the 6 iron, but getting larger on the 7 iron.
  12. Thank you, but the manufacturer says it’s a flaw covered under warranty so I think you’re off base in you analysis. The issue not what club I hit when I practice or how I practice as I’m sure this manufacturer’s rep on the PGA Tour hits thousands of balls without the finish coming off. The issue is what to do when there is no product to cover the warranty.
  13. I don't want to mention the Company yet, but it is VERY well known and respected in the industry. I've had these clubs one year and have been going thru a swing change so I have been on the grass range more than usual and I hit the 6 iron the most with the 7 iron next most. However, I never hit more than a couple hundred balls maybe twice a week at most and play once or twice a week. I started noticing the off color flaw down towards the leading edge and out by the toe a month or so ago. I kept trying to wipe it off, but it wouldn't wipe. They I started seeing a similar flaw on the 7 iron. I'm
  14. I've been looking at this, how's it holding up? Pros and cons?
  15. Sent email, message via FB Messenger, and message on their website. No answer. Checked with a known Miura dealer to see if 300yrds is a Miura dealer; email from Miura corporate states that they are not, but are showing a lot of product. Don't know the source. So.......on to another seller. Did hear that the 001's will be back in October. I may wait for that event.
  16. Even par or above. Touring pros are so used to manicured courses with flat greens. It's fun to see them actually have to scramble and fail to make par. It separates them. Like Jack Nicklaus used to say, when I hear other pros complain I know I don't have to worry about them....or words to that effect. Let them hit it 320. Make it hard to hold the greens and it evens it out.
  17. No feedback on this seller?
  18. This is a really old thread, but any update on this website? I'm looking at Miura 001 heads on this site.
  19. I've purchased and used hundreds of 5A Pro V1x balls. I've never noticed a problem with the performance of the balls. I tried some refinished of the same model and ran into problems with bad balls doing weird and unusual things off the driver club face. Won't go with refinished ever again.
  20. Just go around to the next open hole. Nobody cares then. If the hole isn't open in front, then you shouldn't play through anyway.
  21. In my limited experience, it depends on the Golftec. Our local is a franchise. My iPhone/iPad camera is better than the cameras they have. They don't have Trackman, they have another system not as good. They don't have Boditrak. The harness system they have you wear is not as good as the newer 3D systems. If I were looking for an instructor I would make sure they have Boditrak and video analysis. Recently, I was watching a YouTube video from a Scott Hamilton, who has several well know PGA Tour players going to him. He told Golf Digest that the piece of equipment he feels is the most importan
  22. Oops, got me there. Thank you. At least you read it. Anything to add, other than grammar corrections?
  23. I've seen this before, but had forgotten he gives Tour Pro averages for the pros he teaches. 96-85 percent pressure on the left foot at impact. I like his YouTube presentations. Seems to know what he's talking about. I think 50/50 at the top may be heal to toe, but pressure in the right foot is usually higher than 50 if memory serves, according to the videos I've watched. I know 50/50 doesn't work for me as it seems to lend to a heal pull hook from time to time. Usually at the worst possible time. Edit: I misspoke above in regard to 50/50 at the top. That may be very accurate as the weight i
