Can't speak for everyone but I finally got to get out and use these today and loved them. Haven't played since I was a kid. I hit the range, putting green today and I have to say these things performed great! Where my shot lacked these easily picked up so I didn't make a complete fool of myself. Even the putter is solid and just feels very stable when making both short and long putts. First time out and I wanted to try each club individually as to get a feel for them. Started with the PW and moved up through the Drivers. The PW and Irons felt very stable and solid. Not too heavy but solid enough to help with the shot where my skills are lacking. Very forgiving to say the least. I was really surprised at the precision of "most" of my shots with these.
The drivers felt great as well. Very lightweight and comfortable throughout the shot. Gotta work on that right hook though. ;) The hybrid's are new to me and going to take a little getting used to. I "get it" why they are used but definitely don't feel comfy with them yet. They kinda ate my lunch on a few shots. Need to use them more to get a feel for them. I guess they would be more solid for those who aren't comfortable with the irons?? Either way the clubs are very comfortable, very forgiving yet precise at the same time. Great set to either begin with or to "get back into it" like me. Bag held everything I needed (shoes, balls, tees, glove, gatorade/adult beverages, rain cover, etc. The automatic stands for the bag is a really nice feature. Didn't have those a few years back when I used to play occasionally. You really get a great set for this price point.
A good honest review always includes a negative as well so here goes:
1. Wish it included a sand wedge. That'd be nice. ;)
2. I got crazy blisters on my non-gloved hand due to the thick rubber on the handles. Be ready for that the first time out without any callus' built up. I hit about 50 balls and the blisters showed up around #42. Really good sticky grip but it comes at a price. ;)
3. Wish one of the pockets was an "adult beverage" cooler. ;)
Enjoy them!.....No regrets on the purchase!
