The 'complete line' rule eliminates some pretty great companies (i.e. Scratch). I'll rank them by tier since it's mainly bias that would separate the companies within each tier (and marketing)...


1st Tier:

Titleist
Nike
Callaway
Ping (tight specs

2nd Tier:

Taylormade
Bridgestone
Nickent (RIP)

3rd Tier:

Cleveland (only because I can't stand the name)
Adams
Mizuno (evidently I don't like 'butter')

I would have gladly stayed all-Mizuno, which my package was when it first arrived, but their drivers are less-than par, especially for Lefties.

Nowdays, I'd probably go with Adams. Between the 9015D and the 9032LS, and their beautiful irons, hybrids & wedges...I'd love to have them from top to bottom. Their putters aren't much to write home about, but I'm sure I could find one of them playable.

If not Adams, then Titleist would come next.

Would have to be Taylor Made as I'm pretty close right now.

'08 TM TB TP driver
'10 TM R9 TP irons
33" TM Itsy Bitsy Spider
Just picked up a new TM (XFT) SW and will probably get the matching GAP and LOB
And I play the TM RED ball.

Can't see going to TM hybrids though. Doubt I'll be getting away from my Adams A4's anytime soon.

It is really sad when someone says they won't even consider another brand, especially when there could be another club manufacturer out there that would better fit for their game. I'm not saying PING is a bad brand. They're a great brand, but they don't make anything I like to play with outside of an Anser putter. Whenever there's a demo-day or I'm in search for new clubs, I look everywhere. PING, Nike, Cleveland, Callaway, Cobra, Titleist, Mizuno... I spent 3 hours at the last demo day I went to. It's stupid NOT to shop around. I currently play one brand only, Titleist, but in three weeks I'll have a Cobra S2 driver. It hasn't been that way in the past. I've owned Mizunos, Taylormades, Callaways, and Clevelands most recently. I really don't stay with one ball either. At the beginning of the season I'll find one that works the best and go from there. It could be a Bridgestone, a Pro-V1, a Srixon or Taylormade. Same goes for golf shoes. If your so close minded that you think nothing else out there is for you, there is more than likely something better. Just my two cents.

I would go with Titleist. I would like to say Adams but I have never played their wedges or their putter. I know I like all of Titleist offerings and I can't see myself using anything but Vokey wedges. I learned how to play with them and they just feel right.

if i had to play one brand for everything, it would prolly be Callaway or Cleveland/Srixon. tough call between the two, since i like Srixon balls a lot more than Callaway balls, but i like Callaway irons more than Cleveland irons. maybe i would go TaylorMade instead, but only if i can acquire a set of R7 XD irons. going all Wilson Staff wouldn't be bad either.

I was equipment shopping with a friend of mind the other day and he ended up going with a full Cleveland setup; he specifically wanted to stick with a single brand. Now he's trying to track down a Cleveland bag. Myself, I play a mix of brands and have no strong loyalties but this got me thinking.

If you had to sign on to one brands current lineup for the year and agree to use their equipment in every category (provided they offer it), what would it be? And by every category I mean all 14 clubs, bag, ball, shoes, clothing, everything. If they offer it, you play it. And what area would you be most disappointed with?

---

I'll go with Mizuno. I'd be very happy with everything except the clothes (middling clothing line). I was considering Cobra w/Puma until I saw their putter lineup.

I would probably go with Titleist because it is a whole bunch of trade-offs and it comes out on top.

If I use Irons as base, then it is no doubt Mizuno but I had AP2s before and they are fine irons. I currently play Mizuno wedges but still think maybe my old Vokeys were a tad better. Then there are the woods & hybrids of which I think Mizuno comes up short. Ping is best for me but Titleist current offerings are pretty good. As for putter, I have a Scotty C in the garage so that would count as Titleist. V1 & V1x & FJ gloves rounds out the complete set.

So guess in the end, for single brand: Titleist

Another vote for Titleist.

I wish this had been done as a poll so we could see the totals by brand!
It's pretty interesting to see people's comments. One person thinks Titleists woods are their weak piont, another thinks it's their strength, etc, etc.

One thing I'm super curious about is everyone's handicap. Are the votes for Titleist, TM, Mizuno from the lower handicap players? Ping and Callaway from the higher handicappers? I'm a 3 and have Ping irons and Callie fairway woods in the bag, so no brand prejudice or snootery here, just curious.
