Equipment

Which club releases were the trendsetters and which were big fails? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing trendsetting equipment, and equipment that didn’t have the intended impact on the game. WRXer ‘Sonnygolf’ kicks off the thread asking for fellow members’ thoughts and puts forward Nike’s Square One driver for the fail category.

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.

  • tbccgolfer: “I would say the Ping Eye 2 irons…I think they changed the iron market more than any other club.”
  • aenemated: “My answer to questions like this is always the same – the original Big Bertha. I played in junior tournaments and all 4 years of high school as well as untold rounds with my dad and his buddies back in them days … and EVERYONE had a Bertha back then.”
  • getitdaily: “Trendsetter – R7 or the Big Bertha Warbird. Big fail – Wilson invex.”
  • Bye: “Ping Anser, one of my younger friends said to me about a year ago, have you seen the new Ping putters, they look just like Scotty Cameron’s. Bless. Cleveland VAS irons – I have no words. The Maxfli Tad-more Yipstick – maybe the worst named club of all time.”
