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?
