Golf Club Brand Loyalty

    I played with an inexpensive set the first year I played, then went and got fitted. Callaway was the brand that worked with my swing, and I've used them ever since. I am considering getting fitted again -- I'd like to see if the Adams iron/hybrids would work for me.

    i've always been a Callaway fan.  I've met a lot of people who don't like them, but i have yet to hit a set that didn't feel good, all the way back to the S2H2s.  now granted, some of their sets over the years have had huge club heads that i don't think i could play, but they at least felt good.

    with saying that, i've heard a lot of good things about the Adams iron/hybrid set.  talked to a couple people who have them and love them.  considering a lot of people are replacing their 3 and 4 (and sometimes 5) irons with hybrids, it makes sense to tailor a set around that concept.

    I have always been callaway  clubs but am currently testing out different clubs to see what suits me best. Shoes have always been FJ and ball is Pro V1

    I play Titleist Clubs/Balls and wear FootJoy apparel (with a few exceptions of Polo Golf prior to FJ and my two Millar's Scotty polos).  I've converted over to FJ outerwear, polos, shorts, pants, socks, the hole bit.  Always wore FJ shoes and StaSof glove.

    My love for these two brands is based on my experiences with them.  I trust these brands to continually improve on the course (and look good doing it!).

    when something does that, you can't ask for anything more!

    The pro I used to work for and became good friends with (he "mentored" me as a high school golfer...free lessons, tips, practice, etc.) was a Titleist staffer, which helped push me in that direction. I play Mizuno Irons because I still think they are the best forgings available!

    I play solely Callaway, clubs and balls. When I decided to get back into golf after a moderate absence from the game I decided if Im gonna get involved I'm going to do it right. That being the case I got scheduled for both club and ball fitting and never looked back since.

    Great Forum!

    I bought my new clubs from years of playing the same brand and believeing in the process.

    My father passed a set of clubs to me as a kid, and I have used the same brand ever since. I was fitted for my new set 3 years ago and will not give them up.

    Yes they are Titleist!

    When it was time for new irons two years ago I went to the local golf specialist and tried out several different sets. Ultimately the pro and I agreed that for my game Cleveland HiBores were the right way to go and I have been happy with the decision. In fact I no longer use a fairway wood.

    My first set of decent clubs was the TaylorMade R7 irons, Taylormade SuperQuad Driver, TaylorMade V steel 3 Wood. I owned a Wal Mart putter and Wedges, as stated by another member my game wasn't in demand of all high performance equipment. Once I started to play collegiately, I switched to Titleist  910 D3 driver, 735 CM Irons, a Vokey Spin Milled 56 wedge, a Cleveland CG14 Wedge 52 and a SC putter. I do own the TaylorMade RBZ 3 wood and a knock off hybrid ( but only because of money), I prefer the Bridgestone B-330S ball same as a Pro V1 but much more durable IMO. So I guess you could say that I don't "Loyalty" to any one brand. But I do love my Titleist clubs that I do own.

    i dont have any brand loyalty. I started out gaming hand me down Spalding Elite Professional Blades from my grandpa. Only in the past few years have i gone to modern equipment. Started with some Nike CCI cast irons with PX shafts. Didn't like the chunky top line and wanted to get back to forged, also like taper tip shafts so i wanted to go back to that as well. Now i game Scratch EZ-1 with KBS tour shafts. I run a taylormade R11 w/Motorespeeder shaft, Nike Dymo 3 wood with speeder757 shaft, Pair of Adams Pro Black hybrids, Aldila voodoo shafts, fourteen golf wedges with the KBS high rev, and Callaway gap wedge with KBS tour's, Scotty Cameron putter.  I just use what works and sits well with my eye.  It has to look right standing over it.
