We all love talking s*** about clubs, so what do you guys this is the worst club out of the recent releases? No facts here!
For me it has to be the Wilson Triton DVD driver. Worst combination of looks and sound IMO

I really don't like the look of the Rogue. AP3's sound dreadful, Mac Daddy is the worst brand name in golf, Mizuno clubs are too flat and my 4up bag has the worst strap ever.

I actually thought these performed pretty well and are not really that bad looking. The over 60 crowd and anyone looking for max forgiveness and length off a moderate swing would benefit.

Now as for looks if you really want an ugly club... I think hands down the Cleveland Launcher HB irons win. I've no idea how they perform but they have a "face" that even a mother would put a bag over.

*Yes yes there are really 7, but I'm not counting the C16.

"I don't agree 100% with your analysis.  Yes, it's nice to hole out, which I did twice during last weeks game, but didn't need either to win those holes or the match.   All that was needed was a tap in to win each hole.  Of course, I was aiming from 20yds and 15yds with the intent to put the ball in the hole, but the expectation was tap-ins."

Maybe the most I’m disappointed with. They’re definitely uglier than their predecessor and yes I think they look cheap.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. For all I know you think the rocketballz are a work of art. I think my mp5 are beautiful and I know tons of mizuno enthusiasts that hate them. I could have went with the obvious and said those new Wilson’s with holes all over them but that’s no fun. Anyway, kind of an odd thing to criticize.

Yea, epic irons were really confusing to me. $2000 for a set of irons that look exactly like every other plastic GI iron out there.

I agree on the hybrids. It seems that outside of the SGI market hybrids have scaled down to a decent size across the board for most OEMs, but you really never see any players hybrids that are small. I miss the Adams Pro Black/Pro Mini, Nike VR Pro, Cally XR Pro and other hybrids like this. With utilities becoming so popular I think they have basically replaced them. The Callaway Apex hybrid is my current favorite, seems to be popular on tour too. The JDM market seems to still carry a decent amount of small players hybrids (Romaro, A-Grind, PRGR).

It is So interesting how everyone sees things differently.  

I think for a super game improvement club the G700 is one of the most attractive irons I’ve ever seen.

And whoever said Mac Daddy is a stupid name...couldn’t agree more.  Juvenile and stupid.
I hate it so much I actually never even considered trying one.
