Dislike: Anything else from PING. If theyd make one CLEAN/simple CB or MB set Id change my mind.
It would be awesome!
I've decided to hang on to my VIP MBs (was looking a mizuno). But if ping made one CLEAN no flair set of forged irons id be in no question.

what I notice is they seem to be the most popular with the general golfing public.
White drivers and Fw woods are quite prevalent.
Tells me their marketing/advertising works.

I have been known to be pretty unfaithfull with full wood set ups from TM, Titleist, Nike, TEE and a whole host of various putters. Currently the Nike 4 wood is the only non Mizuno club in the bag.
The only brands I haven't played are Ping (but for no particular reason) and Callaway (never been a fan of the brand in general, not sure why)

Hate: everything Taylormade, Nike (except everything clothing) and Aldila shafts.

I like TM irons fine, but didn't like any of the Rocket series (irons)... I like the fairway woods, but the drivers didn't perform for me.
I've never gotten along with anything from titliest other than their wedges.
I've played Ping irons, and like them fine, but they've never stood out for me.
I've never given Nike a chance (no real reason for this, there haven't been any demo days at the club)
I have NEVER liked Mizuno irons. I'm not sure why. They just don't feel right to me.
I enjoy Cobra, but don't love their new colors... it's not a dealbreaker for me, but I'm in no rush to replace my S3.
I'm looking forward to giving Callaway a chance to get into my bag this year.
I love Bridgestone irons.
And I'm a homer for Wishon, and might just give up on looking at other things this year.

Every golf company had to start somewhere, every golf company had the freedom to start making golf equipment and build their brand. Why can't Nike? Mizuno makes equipment / clothes for numerous different sports of which golf is just one. They aren't a "pure" golf company yet they are highly respected. A company that makes golf clubs is a company that makes golf clubs, be it for 100 years or 10 years. The equipment they bring out is made of the same materials, often in the same factories so the only real difference is what is stamped on the club FFS! All these companies have experienced club designers who have proven themselves in the game. Nike just happen to be lead by Tom Stites, well known from Hogan days where some very well respected clubs were produced. It's just golfing snobbery!

Dislike: Marketing Names: RocketBallZ, RAZR, Extreme...
Dislike: Product Differentiation that is only there for the shock/unique factor: White heads, then Blue, Orange, Red heads. When are iron heads going to be colored the same?
I play Callaway/Adams/Odyssey/Bridgestone, but I don't like all their products and marketing. I would like to try Titelist. Nothing bad to say about them except it's not at a price point that I willing to entertain today. I won't say I don't like a club brand that I havn't played before, but I will say what things I don't like about them.
