Please no covers on the irons! I know some people love to justify it by saying "So what if I like to take care of my things?" but anyone I've seen with them just falls into the category of being somewhat strange and anal.  I look at them as that they are meant to get all nicked up, it gives the soft forgings character.  If at all just buy something like the Titleist 14-way stand bag; I filled it with clubs at my buddies store and walked around with it for a long time, very very good at reducing the chatter.

But I'm rocking one!

We're always making fun of the guys at our place that use em' - call em' "Rudy's" as in wannabe's.  All in good fun though, doesn't really matter to me, I just think they look kinda dorky.  Especially the guys that have them on Ping's and Big Bertha's.  As for resale though, I can't imagine that it's gonna matter enough to even pay for the headcovers after two or three years.  What, $20 - $25 tops?  Nowadays, you're not gonna get crap back in resale or trade-in no matter what anyway.  In twelve months, everything's already a couple or more models old.  Most stores (and individuals) pay way more attention to the face and grooves when determining value than if there's nicks from bag chatter on the back of them.

I use covers because its annoying when im using my carry bag and the clubs are clattering off each other when walking along. My clubs are forged too and i wipe them down after each round and then dry the covers for the next day.

I bought these covers on ebay... very cheap

I have always snaked a towel through my set, but after seeing these....off to Ebay I go.

I did some research and found out covered clubs in great condition sell for 20-30% more.  On a set of high end irons that could be 100-200 bucks.  That alone is enough reason to cover them in my book.  Because I usually keep irons 1-3 years.

i use headcovers on my mp-32's and they still look blingy. I too use to hate the bag clatter noise and its very bumpy walking a course especially pull cart or driving. Buy the good ones, you wont regret it, I know Il never have another set of irons without using them. To me its only going to rust if the chrome wears off and they are really wet in the cover for awhile. If your chromes wearing off, your going to have a problem sooner or later anyway

I completely understand that. I was just saying you can normally tell alot by a person's irons. You can tell who's the neat freaks(iron headcovers), and who's the people who don't really give a rip. I think irons look the best when they are brand new of course, but if they want to get some bag chatter then I guess so be it.

Iron covers are the sure sign of a hacker who felt the need for a useless golf gadget.  You can bet there's a ball retreiver and some type of score counter with the bag too.

I would wholeheartedly disagree with you.  I have played with many accomplished players (including myself) that use iron covers.  I doubt the guy who posted earlier with the Taylormade Japanese irons is a hacker, at 1300.00 a set.  You should re-think your statement because it simply is wrong.

The answer is simple, buy the Ghurka golf bag @ $6500 which is fleeced lined at the top. The fleece holds each club snug enough that the irons will not clang together. Its the only bag to own.

OK.  You just spent 800.00 on a beautiful set of forged blades.  They are blinging chrome and oh so soft and fragile.  Do you put covers on them and look like a weenie, or let fate take it's course and slowly turn you prized possession to beaten up warsticks.  I am truly torn.  I own 2 sets a Mac 1025 M's.  I just took out the new set and compared them to the old set, 5 years old played without covers. I am thinking I would like to keep them pristine.  So I am going to put it to a poll.  Covers or not.  Thanks for your input.

Back in the late 90's I visited MacGregor and had them build a very expensive custom set of pretty blades for me; I still use them today.  I have some nice cars too... there was a time years back when I use to put a custom cover on each when I drove them anywhere... not all that different from a club cover.   Golf clubs are not bling just because they cost $... just like a 80k car is not a collectors item because it cost 80k

The question you must ask yourself - did you buy it as a collector or to use as a golfer; because neither the twine shall meet.  Do not buy what you can't afford to use, or are afraid to use.

Love these guys.  I used to be a club scrubber at a course, and it was always funny when we would pull of a cover and find a ball retriever.  I one time asked a guy why he did it.  He said, "because I don't want the average person knowing how cheap I am that I actually have a ball retriever in my bag."  He was 100% telling the truth too.  He knew he was busted and owned up to it.

Here's the thing about your statement of use and game... Over the last twenty years I've played golf in many of the states, and still play a reasonable number of rounds during my travel in MI, TX, and lots in AZ and CA.  I don't recall one golfer that had an index below say 6 that used head covers. Part of all my play included inter-club team and regional amateurs....  NOT one.  I am not saying you :lol: don't exist or t they don't exist but... golly I've played with a lot of people over the years.  

And, price of clubs has nothing to do with whether he or she has a game.  In general I think the guy you posted to was right... you and your friends just might be oddities, and I don't mean that in a bad way. :drinks:

A though just popped into my mind.  As much as people on this board and elsewhere on the internet use tour players as examples for their actions or decisions, how come I've never seen a tour player wandering down the fairway with head covers on his irons...  :tongue:  yet so many golfers on this board pick their clubs because of what the tour player uses.  figure that.

well I play with a guy thats a 4 handicap that uses iron covers. I think its the cost of irons and  iron covers will keep your irons in better condition. Money spent on clubs isnt really an issue for pros so why would they even consider iron covers, I know if I was a pro and could get a free new set whenever I wanted I wouldnt use them. To me its really up to the buyer of the irons if he wants to use them or not, doesnt really matter. I like irons covers tho because I want to keep them looking great the longest I can after I spend a 1,000 dollars on irons. Even at set up it gives me a better feel over the ball when I have an iron that looks new except for a ball mark on the face. Whereas some people prefer an iron with bag clatter all over it at address.

Whereas some people prefer an iron with bag clatter all over it at address.

Like I said, they are oddities, and there's nothing wrong with that either.  But, I play golf with two touring pros and a relative of mine was on the pga tour for some years.  Even though most  touring pros have a garage filled with clubs, they do not change irons that often; so your point doesn't support their actions or their friends.  Heck Mark Calc.. has been using irons that are years old; and Jack N showed up to play in a recent ProAm using old MacGregor blades that had his name on them.  Here's the thing about touring pros, they don't like changing irons because irons are scoring clubs and take time to get them dialed in, and comfortable with, as opposed to graphite shafts and putters.  They don't really care what their tools look like, and I believe that's the case with most good amateurs.  Purposely having bag chatter on clubs means nothing either.  If anything, having a dime spot worn in the middle of our club faces has some value.

If a player takes care of his clubs keeps the bag cover on when not in use they don't get beat up.  My 1999 custom irons and my current clubs both get used way more then most and they look pretty good.

Iron covers belong in the same bin with ball retrievers.  They are for the golf uninitiated, the chop, the golfing nerd.  They have no place in the bag of a real golfer.

I've never seen or played with a real golfer or anyone that is a good player carry iron covers.

To each his own. I have covers because I don't like to hear them clanking around and I like the irons to look good. To me, pristine irons look good.  When someone else is buying clubs for me, then maybe i'll entertain the idea  of removing the covers.  I also play fairly decently.  For those that think I'd be easy pickings, i'd like for you to take off a few bills from this golf geek, newbie, wannabe, etc.....

I just don't get what the big deal is about how good they look if nobody's ever gonna see them covered up anyway?  Like putting seat covers on the leather in a Lexus so it's worth more at resale?  I'd rather enjoy it myself while it looks good and be able to show it off to others than keep it covered up and hidden.  As for club chatter, that's as much an inherent sound of the game as metal spikes on concrete (used to be).  Four guys/gals heading off down the first fairway with clubs "chattering" is golf's music to one's ears and kind of sets the tone for the day.  Unless of course they're discussing the future resale value of their clubs instead of the day's wagers in which case the pleasing silence of neoprene bumping and rubbing will fill the air.  I still say, let em' clang!

Whar ever happened to owning a brand new set of bad a$$ irons and showing off that you actually use them? I like all the marks on my set, shows I use em, just may be pretty good with em. I golf with a guy that uses covers, he takes a while to get back in the cart if we're driving, don't let one fall off, and the covers are older than the club so if you're showing off some shiny new irons and using a cover, be sure it's suitable. Regarding the clanging together, a hand behind the back is a quick fix when walking.

A new golf set is pretty but you are going to be hitting them into or on top of dirt and grass for four hours at a time. Reminds me of pro skaters with wrist gaurds.

Never use iron covers... They are going to get dirty and show dings. Thats just the cost of doing business.

I use iron covers and just put the cover in my pocket when I'm hitting a shot.  I had some Titleist 755s that I carried with no covers and the chrome is so soft it just nicks all to hell.  Looks awful to me.

were your 755s forged?


Yes, they were forged.  They were the ones Steve Stricker used to play with the red, aluminum chip in the back.  I had 2 sets.  The 1st I was fit to was 1/2" short and I didn't use covers on them.  After several months of banging around in the bag the chrome was all nicked up and I didn't like the look.  BUT - I went back to where I got the irons and told them I think I was ill-fit as I'm 6'1".  The PGA Pro there agreed (I was originally fit by the local Titleist rep who I found out got canned).  I got re-fit for +1/4" long and Titleist sent me a brand new set of irons and wedges as a trade for the short ones.  I put covers on those right away!
