Sure, why not if they are clubs that would otherwise pick up bag chatter

Zero difference to protecting woods or a putter yet nobody questions that

If clubs are kept in the trunk as mine are and rattle around and you hear this as you drive, these thoughts come to mind.  Put the bag cover on the bag, better-made transportation or better driving skills, or all three.  :lol:  :beach:

I don't use them and don't think they are necessary to protect the club.  But if someone wants to use them, that's their business, I don't care.

I’ve had 2 Ogio silencer bags since they came out. Cart bag and walking. No club chatter so no need for pesky iron headcovers. If I’m throwing the bag in the trunk I just snake my towel around them.

And yeah you should always do what you want but know that some people will definitely think you’re a tool with iron covers. Not saying it’s me and not saying you should care..but you should know some people will think this.

I have used iron covers and they do silence the bag as far as chatter. I don't think they cause any more time or hassle as some people say but the reason I didn't like them was my irons started to rust a bit.

1) I love buying clubs from guys who've used iron covers

2) iron covers are great for hiding club purchases from your wife

Similar to the OP, I have only used hand me down clubs until recently. After I bought a new set of clubs I felt it would be wise to protect them. Of course I have matured too, I would hit my bag or cart with a club in the past. Now, I wouldn't think of doing anything that could potentially damage my clubs. I have seen a meme that had a 'starter pack' for a hack golfer. I had several things in the list and thought 'who cares', I am comfortable in my own skin.
