    Where is the industry going?

    5 years ago we had no square headed clubs. Now we have quite a few. I think the problem is that so many companies are making products now that you expect so many so fast. 20 years ago nothing changed except about every few years. Now people want a change immediately. Give it time, things...

    Where is the industry going?

    I paid full retail for almost every club in my bag. Yeah, Im that guy I guess. But I hit it, I liked them, and because of that, I bought it. It may not be for everyone, but Im a club ho.

    Where is the industry going?

    Fortune Brands will ABSOLUTELY NOT sell Acushnet. Footjoy and Titleist are far too profitable. Fortune Brands is one of my biggest clients and I assure you, they are in acquisition mode, not the other way around.

    Where is the industry going?

    Nike is not an Asian company. Yes their products are manufactured there (so are tons of others) but Nike is US owned and operated. And Titleist is owned by Acushnet which is owned by one of the larger companies around. Fortune Brands is not selling them anytime soon.

    Where is the industry going?

    The industry will end up being just fine. But with an economy the way it is right now, $500 drivers just are not selling.

    What ball should I be using?

    I have played them. They are ROCK FLIGHTS.

    What ball should I be using?

    If that is your theory, why spend so much on clubs? I mean Vokey wedges arent really needed at that price tag are they? A high end 3 piece ball is not slightly better than a Rock Flite D2. It is night and day better.

    Adams iDea pro hybrid...

    I think Adams makes the best Hybrids out there. Im a little biased yes, but I have tried all the others. The only one I can find that can compete are the Nickents. They were the innovators and everyone else just followed suit.

    Got new FJ's but...

    I wear FJ's almost exclusively and wear an 11. Every year I buy new shoes and I have had no size changes. It must just be the size 10...lol

    What's For Dinner?

    We ordered some steaks from Lobels. Only used them one other time, and for any steak lovers out there, I say give in and try it. They truly are the best in the world. They arrived today fresh and are going on the grill in 2 hours.

    Hello all

    It does mean Tampa, and I wore those shoes to play today. I play mainly at Westchase, as that is where Im a member. Anytime you want to play, let me know.

    Hello all

    I wont give out any info and no I was not misbehaving. I just dont really need to be a part of a dictatorship. I thought that was not the way of the world anymore. Im all for sarcasm, but when the "leader" wants to do nothing but put down the young kids on the board that is when me as adult...

    What ball should I be using?

    I play NXTs almost exclusively now. But before that I was trying to keep it at $20 or less. My favs in that category are Bridgeston E6+, Titleist DT Solo, Precept U Tri Tour, and Wilson Zip. If you can find a 3 piece ball in your price range, that will produce the most feel for you. But I...

    Wonder why - no 4-wood

    Its a real shame, but I just dont think there is a market for one right now. The casual golfer just will not buy the "odd equipment".

    Used ball question

    There is a local shop here that specializes in used balls. They buy them from all of the private clubs around. For years I wouldnt go near them. Now I can pick up my ProV1s for $19.99 and NXTs for $14.99 and they are all in good shape. Have not had a problem with them yet.

    Hello all

    I am new to the boards. After having it out with a different board I was told by all of the members over there to give this one a try, as it is much more relaxed. So here I am.
