Most Overrated Club You Ever Bought
« on: September 19, 2013, 11:00:31 PM »
I know everyone has to have one (or several). Something that was hyped to the max on a forum and then you got it and were completely underwhelmed.

For me it is pretty easy--most of the things I have bought and tried I've liked, just some more than others. However I have tried the V version of both Ryomas at great expense and came away completely unimpressed with both. Now I know they've been game changers for many out there but they don't suit me at all. Looks, sound, feel mostly let me down as well as the high gravity angle seeming to cause hooks. The maxima was lofted too high for me and that was a big part of the problem with it but it still let me down in other ways as well. The original V spec was ok just didn't do anything better than other drivers I had and didn't seem as long.

What clubs have you guys been let down by?

For me if it counts..was the Crazy range of shafts..
Average at best..but again subjective I know.

Epon 502's. ..same as above

If your not part of the Solution , then your part of the Problem!!

Driver: SYard XV average at best.
3wd: PRGR Egg HD
Wedges: Vega, again very average
Putter: SC Futura X 2013
Shafts: GD AD BB, just didn't perform for me.
Golfballs: srixon, tried many, just didn't like the feel on any.
Golf shoe: FJ M series, comfortable but looks like puke

Haven't been too many....  but for me recently,

Bold wedges.
RomaRo 460HX, which wasn't that bad but compared to 6-7 other drivers in the stable it was dead last.

I've had a bunch of 3 FW's to hit recently with another on the way but none have come close to knocking out
the Egg HD. FEX shaft in it and this club is beyond money.

Egg v2 was overrated, but it may have been the Crazy FW80 shaft.

nakashima.  I have actually found something fun and awesome in every one of the JDM club I've had.  like some others, the sound of the eggs makes me want to puke and I can't say much for the look and feel but these are still in and out of the bag b/c they're just so easy to hit.

the naks were an enormous disappointment, had their ntec 3w and a couple utes, hit them great in the studio and then were complete duds on the course, their utes are very ugly and and the 3w....it was like some kind of crazy curse...just could never hit it well...

I've tried plenty of Crazy shafts and have only liked 2... CB80LS Noir and the FW80 the others were def not worth the coin for me. Found my way back to ACCRA TourZ LS and loving it.

I like the crazy FW80 as well and the Crazy UT as well. Outside of that I've liked the feel but have never been enthralled with results.

The thing with crazy, and the only excuse I can find for the poor results i've had with them, is they do seem to be very, I mean very personal spec orientated. A proper crazy fitting is necessary. I doubt many in japan spend that kind of cash without giving them a spin first when they can go to the likes of victoria golf (and of course crazy itself) and try them all with a trackman. But buying them semi blind online like I did several times...is plain retarded.

While I agree with this I believe it is true of any shaft, regardless of price.

They are very swing speed and tempo specific.  I went through a fitting last year at the Crazy factory and very
few of the shafts worked for me.  However the couple that did, do, work very very well for me.
