I know people say that, the technology in clubs have improved, therefore meaning that you can his the ball further and more accurate.
However with the clubs there are now, what is difference between a $200 set of irons compared to a $800 set of irons and will it make a huge difference to me? I’m a 28 handicapper, 2 and a half year old clubs but not loads of money to put into the game at the moment. I’ve been playing for 2 months 🙂
Hello, I purchased a King Cobra S9-1 F Speed Driver around last Christmas, and about 2 months ago the club head unexpectedly came off of the shaft, after swinging it at the driving range. I didn’t do anything wrong with the club, this incident just unfortanately occured.
I called the Cobra company and they told me to bring the club to the retailer where I bought it (Dick’s Sporting Goods), and that it would be dealt with from there. Now, 2 months later, a repaired club has been returned to Dick’s, and I just picked it up earlier this evening. But the club is not the same as it had been when I purchased it. The same club head and grip are present, yet they have replaced the 55g Cobra shaft with a 65g stiff Fujikura shaft. This new shaft looks sort of cheap, and it is also heavier than the original one.
I am just worried that I may have been cheated on the club that I originally purchased, seeing how the damage was accidental, and the club was still covered under warranty. I also worry because I really liked my old driver, and I wonder that this heavier shaft may make a large impact on the way I hit the club.
So I guess my question is, "Is it standard for the company to give me a different shaft on the club, or do I deserve a replacement club that matches the original one I purchased?"
Thank you both for your well-explained answers regarding the situation. I now realize that I have gotten an actual better shaft than before, but the shaft does say stiff flex on it. Will this make a noticable difference, or will it be unnoticeable?

Gripping or quite possibly re-gripping a golf club will be the first exposure an individual has with clubmaking. Hireko’s Technical Director Jeff Summitt will thoroughly discuss not only the proper procedures and important terms you will need to know, but also some of things you will need to get started. If you are interested in clubmaking, this is one Webinar you will not want to miss.
Im thinking about lengthening my clubs about an inch. I guess Im not exactly sure how they do it, but it seems to me like if they add a piece to the shaft, it would not be one solid piece and make it less stable, thus losing quality on my hits. Not sure I am wording this right, but if anyone has any input I would appreciate it.
Im about 6’4, and havent golfed that much in the past. I bought a set from a store, that was basically like a set in a box type, that had everything included. Now that I am golfing a bit more, I realize that the clubs are about 0.5-1.0 inches too short for me.
I want to purchase my first set of golf clubs. I have not been golfing too many times but I am pretty athletic and a quick learner. I am not trying to be a pro but would like to have fun. I usually spend a little more than average on my sporting equipment because usually you can get better quality and if nothing else at least it makes you more confident. I want to spend around 00.00 on clubs and I am wondering what else I should buy shoes, bag, glove, etc. I would also like to know the basics when it comes to club selection, offset, shaft length, stiffness, etc. Someone who could summerize for me would be great!!!
