Haywoodgolf unveils limited-edition 24-karat gold-coated irons, wedges and putter

Published

on

Haywoodgolf has been making waves in the golf equipment world, and the recently formed company has now unveiled it’s limited-edition 24-karat gold-coated clubs which extend to their irons, wedges and all-new putter.

Each clubhead features 10-microns of 24-karat gold (5-times more than standard gold-plating) designed for a bold look as well as excellent durability.

Included in the range is Haywood’s first putter release, and along with its 24-karat gold plated look, the flat-stick is CNC-milled with dual, removable weights. Made of 303 stainless steel, the putter contains 3-degrees of loft, 72-degrees of lie angle, and weighs 350-grams. The putter starts at $550.

The brand’s signature irons contain a two-piece hollow body design with a 431 stainless steel body (soft) that is welded to a specially heat-treated 17-4 stainless steel face (hard) – designed to offer players maximum distance. The 24-karat gold-coated irons start at $2500 per set.

Haywood’s signature wedges are forged with S20C carbon steel with CNC milled grooves designed for soft feel and maximum control and arrive in 52, 56 and 60-degree loft options. The brand’s 24-karat gold plated wedges start at $399.

With bespoke customer service in mind, the limited-edition 24-karat gold-coated clubs are currently “reserve only”. Once reserved, the company will reach out to each customer directly to decide on shaft, grips and ferrule options.

Haywoodgolf’s limited-edition 24-karat gold-coated clubs are available to reserve now at gold.haywoodgolf.com.

    Im 1/2 tempted to order a putter. NOT bc of the gold nonsense but bc of the dual sight lines. Not too common to find putters set up like that. Being right handed and left eye dominant putters set up like that are perfect.

    Wrapping gold plating around 17-4 cast steel? Seriously?

    I’ve always though iron covers were stupid. Well, they still are, but they’re mandatory for these. Yet they’re designed for showing off, right?

    I really don’t care how much money someone wants to spend on clubs, nor vanity. But these simply don’t add up.

    These can’t be for actual play, are they? They would look great mounted on a wall.

    When a golfer shows up at a high end club with these irons, the immediate response is “what a douchebag!”

      Why? Because some people can afford things you can’t? Do you think “what a douchebag!” when you see someone driving around in a nice car too? Sounds like a personal problem…. just sayin.

        Because it’s clear they are there to be seen for their wallet. It’s pretentious.

    Spend a lot on equipment only to have it look like crap after a few months. That will wear off very quickly. Who thought this was a good idea?!? And the glare off those would make them unplayable in the right sunlight.

    Gold has many wonderful, useful properties. Use in any kind of sports equipment outside of computers for e-sports is not one of them.

‘My brief blade experience’ – GolfWRXers react

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been reacting to an interesting experience WRXer ‘LongJohnPeter’ had when testing out blades for the first time. ‘LongJohnPeter’ writes:

“For reasons unbeknownst to myself, I have been obsessed with playing blades lately. So I took a trip to my local range today and picked out an old Lynx USA 7 iron blade from the rental rack (I don’t own a blade and had never hit one previously). While I did see a reduction in distance (more of a result of EXTREMELY crappy range balls and a 50 degree day), I couldn’t believe how much more consistent my face contact was, compared with my Ping Zing’s I currently use. And even on the few mishits, they weren’t punished nearly as bad as everyone and their mother said they would be, and I knew exactly what had happened and could adjust accordingly.

Anyone have a similar experience? Is this just a honeymoon phase? Or is the golfing elite trying to preserve the sanctity of blade irons?”

And our members have been reacting to the post and sharing their thoughts 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.

  • uglande: “I switched back to blades this year (had not played them in decades), and I will never give them up. They are so pure and consistent and easy to maneuver. I prefer the thinner soles, which give me better turf interaction. Blades will never produce those nuclear shots that go 15 yards longer than you expected. And, yes, GI clubs help retain ball speed on mishits, but I would rather be 10 yards short of the green than in the bunkers or other garbage on either side of the green. And I certainly don’t want to torpedo one (happened frequently with my P790s) that goes over the green, which is always where the worst hazards lie.”
  • NotTheGuyOrAmi: “I ’m far from a technical expert, but I have concluded that increased MOI may give some incremental benefit, and of course less loft means clubs with a particular loft might hit father, but the point of most of the “improvement” in-game improvement irons is to allow people who hit the ground before the ball with a slow swing speed to get a better result from a lower center of gravity. This, by the way, is not a good thing.”
  • CCTXgolf: “For some people a smaller club makes them concentrate a little harder, and that extra little bit of concentration can certainly help you find the center of the club face more often. Problem is it’s tough to keep that going for 18 holes. Much less day to day. I just went to blades in my short irons (8-P) and don’t really find that much difference in those shorter irons. They sure are pretty though.”
