Nothing feels like a ____________!

Recommended Posts

A little play on the old Mizuno tag line, but in this case, it doesn’t have to be a good thing. Name the most UNIQUE feeling clubs you’ve ever hit. Clubs that if you were to hit them without knowing what they were, you’d immediately recognize that old feeling... good or bad.


Metal: struggling with this... but the Mavrik Max... it was the first driver that I went with a 44.5” shaft, I felt like I often hit this club high on the face. A little hot melt got my numbers pretty nice, but I didn’t like living so high on the face. The feeling was unique up there. 

Irons: Callaway X forged 2009. The whole fave felt so pure. i played these for 10 seasons... wore the chrome off em. 

Wedge: Wilson Staff wedges 2020. Sooo sticky through the turf. I’d know as soon as I couldn’t get the club out of the ground. 

Putter: Muira 009. The first putter I’ve ever felt that harkens back to the feeling of flushing an iron shot and not just hitting a putt.

... walking down a cart path with steel spikes crunching under your feet. 

Nothing feels like, a balata golf ball coming off of the face of my 1980 Spaulding Top-Flight forged irons. 

Adam’s XTD TI 3 wood, I would tell that kind of heat off the face if I was blindfolded!

That's what I came here to post, except in colder weather. When the wet side of your towel is crunchy by the third hole that's a cold day.

Good grief, different strokes and all that. If that ever happened to me I would walk off the course, drop off my house keys with my local real estate agent and drive until I hit warmer weather.

This is for the Endo and raw iron fan. I had(they were retired and stolen) a set of the Japan limited edition Black Ox Bridgestone J36 CB's. When I was a freshman in college and back home for the summer. I set some reminders on my dad's eBay account as he knew I wanted to replace my Hogan Apex's. I was at work at the time and I get a text from my dad to an eBay link. '$320, do you want them?'


'Buy them right now' I said.


I played them for 9 years. The most pure, perfectly shaped irons I have seen to this day. I have been around and every time someone looked at them from address and hit them they made a comment. One of the pro's at a club I worked (he was still playing MP-32's) hit my irons one day. 'My god that isn't real, it feels so good', was the summary of his words after every shot.


When I worked at a super high end club I met Aaron Baddeley hitting next to me on the range, and I had my 7 iron propped up on my bag. We were talking and he grabbed it and said 'now this is how a golf club should look' before taking a few swings. After each shot he would chuckle and say 'That's too pure'.


So having Yoro Mizuno MP4's now, and having hit every players iron in the last 5 year; I'm now stuck chasing a swing that will help me replicate the feel of those irons. That or I need to get a set of Baby Blades.

Nothing feels like a.......


 Thin, heeled, Wilson Staff FG 17 Tour Blade, one iron shot, hit off a hard pan down slope on a windy, 38 degree day, using a classic rock hard, pinnacle ball, an x100 shaft, tipped 2 inches, with a 10 year old, crusty GP Victory cord grip.  The feeling can only be described as “electric”.
