The word gets thrown around a lot in the BST, seemingly reserved for clubs that were unexpectedly good or popular, and have remained popular beyond the standard cycle. Having a 50+ page thread on here seems to be a pre-requisite too!

 

Just for fun, two questions

  1. When someone says unicorn, what do you think it should mean?
  2. What are your favourite unicorns?

I'll start - UDI 1 iron, Adams BTY Fairway wood, R510 TP driver?

 

Since 2005, the only club I can think of that is still revered to this day is the 905R. Don't get me wrong, I love the R510TP (in fact I have one myself) but that was made in 2003 (I think), not 2005 (you said last 15 years, not last 17).

 

Though i'll admit I didn't check the numbers before posting, 2003 is 15 years ago by my maths? Regardless, 905r is a great suggestion!

 

905r ... Really? ?

 

I was about to give mine to my nephew, since he got some ok shots away with it on Sunday.

 

He's 13. Rarely plays.

 

Might just keep it then. ?

A unicorn is something magical that is never/rarely seen, so I'd agree on the Adams BTY's and CMB's.

  2. What are your favourite unicorns?

I think a unicorn is one of those clubs that just works for you, even if you got the exact same club to spec it doesn't perform like the original "unicorn". Think of Tiger Woods "Elder Wand" Scotty Cameron, try as they might they have never been able to replicate it completely.

 

Favorite unicorns for me:

1. Cleveland CG14 60-degree wedge w/zip grooves

2. Original Odyssey #7 White Hot (still in the bag)

3. TaylorMade R7 Titanium 3 wood (ridiculously long and easy to work left/right and up/down)

Driver: Ping G410 Plus w/Tour AD XC7 
3 Wood: Cobra King Speedzone/HZRDUS Smoke Yellow 70

5 Wood: Callaway Mavrik Subzero/Aldila Rogue White 70
Long Irons (4-6): Wilson D7 Forged/DG120TI
Short Irons (7-P): Wilson Staff Model Blade/DG120TI

Wedges (50/54/58): RTX-4 Raw/DGS400
Putter: Original Odyssey White Hot XG No. 7
Ball: Titleist Left Dash

Rarer than a $3 bill

2014 Rapture 3 wood I think fits the bill

 

Agreed. So hot, and gone so quickly.

 

Fitting description..."fits the bill"

 

Because the bill for that club was outrageous. I think Bob Parsons got the idea for PXG based solely on that club
