What GolfWRXers are saying about ‘rare’ equipment items

Published

Bettinardi x Big League Chew

In our forums, our members have been discussing rare equipment items after WRXer ‘Rory4Pres’ created a thread dedicated to the topic. Our members have been discussing both the rare items they possess, and whether seeing another person with the same piece bothers them or not.

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.

  • JoeFrigo: “For me personally, it would bring together a conversation piece. I do like rare items, but I don’t care if I have something that is a 1 of 1. The Bettinardi Hive releases, everything SWAG Golf releases (especially the special headcovers you don’t expect) are all conversation starters. I buy things to use, not to sit on display. If it looks cool and I want it, I’m definitely going to use it.”
  • ARL67: “During the lockdown, I bought mint sets of MP-4 and Adams CMB. Though still readily available in the Classifieds, they might be “rare” in the sense that they are mint, but for now I just really like looking at them. I keep two bags of Mizuno as my gamers and also ordered some Wishon EQ1 SL heads, but I’ll put these all-time favourites in play once in a while.”
  • SubaruWRX: “I do have many rare clubs, and the worst part about it is sometimes I have a shot that’s going to abuse the clubs. If I break a rare club, how do I replace it? I wish the clubs I like didn’t happen to be rare. I’d rather have an abundance out there so I can replace anything I break or damage. And the price would be better too!”
  • dan360: “People don’t notice. My putter is rare; nobody cares. In face, I had a playing partner last summer ask me why I took such good care of a PING putter. So, of course, the WRX ho in me starts into this deep dive about what it is and the only part that he even acknowledged as ‘cool’ was when I was done with my 30-second dissertation.”
  • Stinger83: “Only for putters. I always Dig the idea of refinishing an old scotty or a custom MOTO. But I have a limit. I doubt I’d ever spend Martin guitar levels of money on a putter like a circle T. The putter is the most unique club in the bag, and I think most of us want it to reflect our favorite ‘look’ more than any other club. For me….that’s something like a circa 62 refinished black.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best 3-woods for a high handicapper

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been looking at 3-woods for high handicap players. WRXer ‘Metro07’ is very much a Cobra guy but is open to other suggestions, saying:

“I am 53 and not a long hitter so I obviously don’t have a fast or even moderate swing speed. I got back into golf 5 or 6 months ago after being out for many years and was never really that good back then, I still haven’t broken 100 on a real course. I’m hitting my 4 iron about 175 carry.”

And our members have been 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.

  • Nichex524: “I’d focus on either a 4 or 5 wood honestly… and as far as forgiving goes, most Ping models will probably be helpful enough as far back as the G20 even. Make things as easy as possible, especially if you’re not looking for distance.”
  • ThwFlyingWasp: “I know you’re a Cobra guy, but I swear the Ping G410 SFT is the easiest fairway wood I’ve ever hit off the deck… it’s not the longest out there (by far), but it’s point & shoot easy & great off the tee as well if you tee it down… plus lofts are a little higher than normal to help the ball in the air… 16* 3 wood & 19* 5 wood… it’s like cheating… it’s so good… seriously lol… try them.”
  • Striker Ace: “I highly recommend the Callaway Big Bertha B21 5 wood, IMO it is so easy to hit straight, especially with the amount of offset that this thing has. I use it as my driver also, but it is also easy to hit from the deck. Give it a try!”
