Review: Sunfish Golf Headcovers

Published

on

Vintage style is a popular look today in marketing, social media and fashion. The golf equipment industry is not immune to this and many companies find themselves adapting trends for a very traditional sport. Sunfish Golf knows that a classic look and true quality never go out of style and they offer both of these qualities in their headcovers.

Based in Nashville, Sunfish Golf was started by two friends David Riggs and Alonzo Guess. Both men shared common interests in world travel and their love for golf. As David and Alonzo traveled, they have always been impressed by the quality and beauty found in handmade goods. With their comprehensive backgrounds in marketing, the two entrepreneurs have set out to offer quality handmade golf products at an affordable price and a commitment to 100 percent customer satisfaction.

Sunfish Golf’s knitted headcovers have a home-made look, but once you hold one of the headcovers in your hands, you realize these are top-quality covers that are more than capable of providing protection for your driver, fairway woods or hybrids.

The headcovers are hand-knit using top quality 100 percent natural New Zealand wool, ensuring a nice layer of protection while remaining flexible. The covers are available in a variety of colors and may be purchased separately or as a set. A full set includes a driver, fairway and a hybrid cover.

Sunfish Golf sent a set of crimson and gold-colored headcovers as well as a black-and-white driver cover to me. All the covers they provided featured a pom top, but tassel tops are available too.

The driver cover has a finely detailed embroidered Monterey Peninsula Country Club logo — a nice example of their ability to customize their products. The wool knit is heavier than you would expect, and all the materials were impressive.  Each cover features elastic at the opening and below the head, which helps them slide on and off with relative ease and also keeps them on your clubs during the course of play. The driver covers will fit all drivers including 460-cubic-centimeter heads.

The set they provided had three gold stripes for the driver, and the fairway and hybrid covers each had one stripe. This is the typical look for a set, but you can customize the colors and number of stripes if you wish.

Sunfish Golf offers headcovers in a variety of colors.

Sunfish Golf offers headcovers in a variety of colors.

Though Sunfish Golf offers many colors to choose from, secondary and third colors are optional. You can choose the number and color of the stripes, and they offer five different monogram styles also. Logos can be incorporated to reflect a particular school, sports team, country club, organization or company. A custom order typically takes up to four weeks to deliver.

An item not currently available through Sunfish Golf are putter covers. It would be nice to see these offered in the future, as they would be a fine addition to their current sets.

Prices start at $29.99 for one headcover and a set starts at $79.99. There are less expensive wool knit covers on the market, but with headcovers golfers tend to get what they pay for. Each Sunfish cover is hand-knit and the wool is top-quality. All Sunfish products also come with a 100 percent money back guarantee.

Retro is in and trends come and go. Based on what we’ve seen with Sunfish Golf’s headcovers, quality craftsmanship is always in style.

Most forgiving one piece forged irons? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the most forgiving one piece forged irons on the market. WRXer ‘JStang’ lays out the criteria, saying: “I’m talking no slots, injected goo, tungsten plugs etc. Just a good old solid chunk of metal.”

And our members have been sharing their best picks in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Jmccas: “New Level 623CB is a single piece forging.”
  • brucedeuce: “Zx7. Not sure anything compares in a one-piece forging.”
  • drumdude96: “I play Adams A4 forged irons, and they are incredibly forgiving for a one-piece forging. They’re certainly not the latest and greatest, but I love them. And I get really good distance out of them too.”
  • CR1977: “Without tungsten? Wilson Staff Blades are pretty forgiving for a simple chunk of metal.”

PERFORMANCE OUTSOLE: The VersaTrax+ outsole is engineered with traction elements to create an outsole that is perfect for on course performance. Translucent rubber traction elements offer a high end look and feel while maximizing traction with each step you take. The unique anti-channeling traction pattern is designed for grip from any lie or angle.

TOUR-PROVEN TRACTION: Premiere Series is equipped with low profile spikes that deliver stability and support from the moment you step foot onto the course. Pulsar cleats by Softspikes® are the #1 selling cleat in golf and the overwhelming choice of touring professionals worldwide.
