Bentley golf clubs??? That's funny. They actually look sweet, but I don't see the market even for the highest rollers. Seems like Ferrari tried this a few years ago. Who actually makes their sticks?

 

Possibly the only golf clubs I've ever seen that I'd probably use iron covers for.

 

 

 

 

ETA - What the heck is the Tour Edge booth all about? You don't get pretty models and cover them up in some 2001 space odyssey suit.

Who in the world buys this stuff? I can't imagine a serious market for any of it. Edel makes some really cool stuff but how do they stay in business?

I kinda like those KLVN bags. Not sure if I would actually buy one and use but I like what they are doing.

 

For $400 bucks that thing better have a kegerrator, a flat screen, and carry itself

 

I don't really get the concept...instead of carrying a couple clubs from the golf cart to the ball, you carry a couple clubs and a bag?

so let me get this straight... KLVN is banking on the golfers who like taking multiple clubs to the green, to all of a sudden want to carry those same clubs in a bag instead?

That's what it looks like. This had to have been funded by someone with so much money he needed a loss leader for tax purposes. Zero chance they are in business in 12-18 months.

I thought that KLVN bag was one of the worst ideas I saw today. No idea what the point was and who would ever buy it. It can't be a carry bag cause the part that detaches only holds a few clubs. So what's the point? I will jut carry my wedge and putter to the green. And it's 400 bucks.

 

Edel was actually pretty cool where they had putter fitters on site doing full fittings and if you purchased at the show you got 100 bucks off. It looked like a really detailed fitting. Only problem was there were only 2 fitters and each fitting took half an hour. So unless you were willing to stand in line there all day you weren't going to get fit

Well, from this recent article, no profit for 18 years: http://www.golf.com/tour-and-news/bryson-dechambeau-custom-clubmaker-and-teaching-pro-might-be-start-golfing-revolution

 

Yikes.

 

I've recently spent time with the Edel torque balanced putter line and I am 100% sold. The "toe up" weighting (that Odyssey is now doing) flat out works and the Pixl face feels amazing. Completely impressed.
