nike-vrs-covert-ironsAll right so it’s time to get new irons. Why? Let me guess… you’re not sure if you need new irons because your set looks okay but, you think that a newer irons will help you play better.? uhm… I think I actually projected my self with that statement he he.

Well if you’re a beginner that may be your case also, but like my first golf instructor told me I must tell you… “Not even the best golf clubs in the world will fix your swing faults”.

And though that statement is true, I have to say that some golf clubs do help us a bit to play better. Nevertheless, this is not about telling you “hey before buying new clubs first learn how to swing your clubs”, if you are reading this is because you want an honest review from an average golfer and that’s what I’m about to give, so here it goes:

Adams Golf has always been known for making easy-to-hit golf clubs having the average weekend golfer in mind. But this time they outdid it in creating game improvement technology. The Idea 2016 set includes 3 enhancement technologies in one set:

1) Hybrid technology (club head is a mix between wood and iron) on 3, 4 and 5 irons.

2) Slot technology (a slot that kind of wraps around the club head creating more launch and ball speed) on 6 and 7 irons.

3) Deep Cavity Technology (a hollow or pocket shape in the back of club head that increases forgiveness).

Besides the club design is nice and the feel is awesome. These are great clubs for either beginners or senior golfers.Continue reading

clone-golf-clubsTo better understand what are clone golf clubs, let’s put the following example: If you ever heard the term “after-market” in the automotive industry, you’ll know that there is a community of auto part manufacturers mostly in Asia, that make the parts for the big car companies like Honda, Nissan, Toyota, Ford and Chevrolet just to name a few.

Most of the parts and accessories sold by the actual big car company dealers are in fact made by the same manufacturers as the aftermarket, and many car savvy people in the car repair industry, actually buy from this after-market at lower prices at the exchange of shorter warranties that do not come from the brand company of the car.

one industry, which uses this term very often and recognized by the consumer is the computer industry… I’m sure you’ve heard phrases like “are you going to buy an HP, a Dell or a clone PC?”

In fact one industry, which uses this term very often and recognized by the consumer is the computer industry… I’m sure you’ve heard phrases like “are you going to buy an HP, a Dell or a clone PC?”

Well the golf industry is no different. Most of the best brand golf clubs are manufactured overseas and then distributed to the US and other countries to be sold by their corresponding golf brand companies.

So a “clone product” is in essence the same product (or very close to it with a slight design variation) as the name brand product. And the main difference between the two relies in the use of the brand. Where the brand name product is selling at higher rates than of the clone product because it’s also selling something the clone product does not have or has it at a lower level… and that is, “prestige” because of its popularity and acceptance from the consumer due to massive media exposure.Continue reading
