I have a real old JC set and wanted a back up set for my . . . . back up set.
Ordered from "Classic Headcovers " and now the JC are in a bin in my closet and I have 3-4 sets of these on everything.
Be aware , they are crazy thick and heavily contoured and detailed if your looking for something on the light side.

In Rocket Tours defense, they have always been very good about replacing them. I also hear the newer ones are thicker & less prone to holes.

Rocket Tours are not custom made and look a little cheap (for what you are paying)

I've had several set's of Rocket Tours and no question they're fine headcovers. Helena is a pleasure to work with and their customer service is second to none. And, if you can get in on one of the promos they run during the year it's an even better deal. I decided though to get a couple Jan Craigs for my driver and fairway and keep the Skinny Stick for my hybrid. I always thought the pom on the Rocket Tour was too small for the widebody head on my Burner TP and it made it look like a pimple on the end of the cover lol. Plus, even though the RT color combo's are great, they didn't quite have what I wanted. So, I ordered the Jan Craigs in the combo I wanted, both with the 8" poms and they look great with the RT Skinny Stick. No question the Jan Craigs are nicer covers but they're also more expensive. I'd never had a set before and I can't believe how thick and well made they are. Well worth the extra dough and the 30 day wait.

Was so hard to decide with all teh colors. Started with White but figured would get dirty, then yellow but wasnt sure how far out it would look. Settled on Black - classic.
Have a TM Driver and FW so trying to see if i can locate a Tm logo patch and put that on.
