I have had them all, and Ju Ju makes the best, most durable covers. Her service is the bomb. She is fast as lightening. I love my Ju Ju headcovers and will buy them again for my next set. I do have a Rocket Skinny stick on my hybrid. I like it, but it is not as thick as the Ju Ju. Ju Ju's are easier to get on and off of the driver too.

I have had my Rocket Tours going on two years they look as good as the day I bought them. I had another set for a year and they sold on this site BST and the purchaser was happy with them as well. I bought my brother a set two years ago for his birthday, he had them less than a full season and complained that they were low quality, my mom and his wife then bought him JCs to match his TM tour bag he had these for a few months and complained about them and put the TM OEM driver cover back on. Last fall we had the opportunity to play the Air Force Academy course in Colorado Springs great course BTW, He came by the house to pick me up opens  the trunk and his trunk was a mess he had a shovel in there..LOL he had so much junk, fly rods, brochures and binders for his job, just a ton of stuff I was not going to let him do a trunk slam on my bag ,so I put it in the back seat. Later that day during our round he found a fly snagged in his three wood cover I told him right away to try cleaning out his car it's a BMW 740I a beautiful car that he treats like a truck on our way back home we filled two trash cans at the car wash with the junk for his trunk and back seat . My point of this long post is it is not always a problem with the product but how it is used or treated. These are knitted products  and won't hold up like a OEM vinyl or canvas cover. There is a little sacrifice that goes along with the look and style of a Pom knitted cover a little care and they will last a long time no matter who the maker is.

Love my Rocket tours.... they are amazing... 100 rounds on them and they are still like day one. Durability issue is a non issue now.. they are very high quality and customer service is by far the best. I ordered a set of 4 to Toronto Canada and they are the only US co. to date that is in touch with shipping to Canada... they sent it USPS ground I got them in less than a week and paid nothing at the door. I paid them $10 bucks shipping.... super sweet deal.. plus I scored the 4 for 3 deal so for exactly $102 I got 4 covers and they are fantastic...

Just got my Ju Ju headcovers and I've got to admit after owning Jan Craigs, Rocket Tours, Iliac and Travis Headcovers, that these are the nicest and thickest headcovers I've owned!! +1 on Ju Ju!!

I get my covers from classicheadcover.com. They have rocket tour and jan craig beat by miles. The headcovers are thick, you can pick from various size poms and they are truly custom made. Check it out, you wont be sorry.

Yes. They are a bit more expensive than rocket tours and Jan Craigs, but they are very high quality covers and look very very nice. Check them out!

Personally, I have a rocket tour red white and blue headcover for my driver and I love it.

My vote goes for the Rockets. I've never had durability issues with them and they're easy to change out whenever you want to switch things up. I've had the pom poms but recently switched to the tassles for an old school look and couldn't be happier. The pic below has a large size for driver, a small for fairway, and a skinny stick for hybrid to give you ideas of what the different sizes look like.

I've had Jan Craigs for over 10 years and only last year had to get a my second pair cause my originals wouldn't fit my r9.
I had 1 Rocket tour and it fell off and I lost it. It was a hassle from the get go always falling off.I know it was one bad experience for me but never looked at anything else since.

My Rocket Tours are awesome!  No durability issues.  I'm sure JC's are great too, but Rocket Tours are considerably more affordable.

I've had Rocket Tours, Jan Craigs, JuJu's and just got in a Travis Headcover.  I haven't played with the Travis in the bag yet (surgery), but it looks nice and is very thick and high quality.  They got my design a tad off (forgot the stem on the shamrock), but the quality is great.

Out of the other 3 I've got to use on the course, I'd have to rank them JuJu, Jan Craig then RT's.  RT's being last because of their durability.

It might change after I get the Travis out on the course and use it a bit, but for now, those are my rankings.

I love the rocket tour look, but a couple of the ones I have bought the last couple years have gotten holes in them where it appears the material was just not connected in a small area.

My one Rocket Tour is starting to fray and a small hole is likely on the way after only 20 or so rounds - and I rarely take the cover off my 3wd.  On the other hand, my Travis knit covers are super thick and are holding up wonderfully so far.  The cost is reasonable and the covers are completely customizable - no advertising RT on the neck.  I've never used JC's, but from holding them at Golfsmith, they seem comparable to the Travis ones.

I have a set of Rocket Tours but they feel considerably thinner than my friend's Ju Ju's...I will probably go for a custom set of Ju Ju's soon...although I like that Travis headcovers can do logo's :D...but there doesn't seem to be as big a following with them as with Ju Ju's or Jan Craigs.

I love the look of the rocket tours, but have ended up with holes in several pom covers. The skinny sticks are great though. They seem more durable, probably because you don't need to stretch them out as much.

The rocket tours are a quick way to get your knitted headcover fix, but the quality isn't that great.  I liked mine up until every one of them developed multiple holes - My mom got me a set of Jan Craigs last christmas and I love them.  I'll likely order more in the future.  There's no sign that any of them is going to develop holes anytime soon, and I'm pretty rough with them!  They definitely have a more handmade feel than the RTs.

Another vote for Iliac golf.  Had a set of JCs for along time.  Great covers, but I now have iliac leathers and liek them soooo much better.  Easier to get on and off.  Look good and you dont get wool everywhere in the summer if you walk and sweat.
