How many WRX have $1k bags
Posted 15 December 2009 - 04:20 PM
I would say you will find that about 85% of WRX has at least $1k invested in their bag given our nature of the hoing life! I'll just say that I'm nearly at $1k with just my irons...darn upcharge for Project X!

A good buddy and I were just discussing this the other day. My wife tries to bit@h about all the clubs and that it must cost me TONS of $$$ , but everyone I know comes to my defense--usually because they get awesome gear at great prices also.
As for what it'd cost me to replace my bag, that's tough.
I got my CG7 Black Tour irons for cost, so good deal there, and replaceable...but my putter is irreplaceable for me--I've never seen the same putter before. The driver and hybrid are also nearly irreplaceable--so much so that I wanted to cry when the hybrid head started to slip (as most every head I've ever seen on an Epic shaft does after a long period of use). I pulled the hybrid apart and reinstalled...held my breath the first time I hit it, hoping it'd perform the same!!! I have so much confidence in both of them and they are somewhat one of a kind--bought the hybrid like this, so I'm not sure how much the shaft is tipped or anything, it just flat out performs. Also, the hybrid Epic is tough to find at times. As for the driver, it''s a bit special itself. It was built at the Kingdom (TM's fitting site). It has a Fujikura 6Z08 X in it, but has no graphics--plain black shaft. Also, the head is dead square. I've built drivers with identical specs only to have them all perform different...I'd be devastated if something happened to this driver!
All in all, replacement cost for same specs, though sentimental value is irreplaceable, would probably be as follows:
Driver -- $200ish
irons -- I'll the lowest I've seen them at retail here, don't think Cleveland would appreciate me listing cost -- $700
3 wood -- $175
wedges -- $180 for all 3
hybrid -- $125ish
putter -- $100 for a retail one...though as I said, mine is a pretty rare version that I doubt I could find
bag -- $140
rangefinder -- $300
accessories -- $125 (divot tools, tees, balls, gloves, spare cash)
TOTAL -- right at $2,000...and I don't know if that could get it all replaced at the current specs if for instance my clubs were stolen and I had to buy at retail tomorrow for a quick tourney or something. It'd probably be closer to $2500 in that case.

Sorry everyone, only in jest...kind of.

I don't think they are sizing...it looks to me like they are responding to the question posed.

most iron sets at $700
wedges $100 ea by 2
hybrids/fw $150 ea by 2
I'd bet the vast majority of us have over $1000 in our bags, and many would have about $1700 without even getting all that fancy with things
