This is quite an honest article from GolfWrx.
I especially like the 100m sprinter analogy. To run faster, do I train harder and learn the right techniques, or just go buy a new pair of shoes?
I have to admit that I do get swayed by the sales pitch of equipment manufacturers promising longer distances by using their latest gear, but at the end of the day, my distances seem to be longer when I SWING it corrrectly regardless of my equipment.
If you wanna buy a longer game, invest in improving your swing. At least you wont be filling up your storeroom with clubs that grow cobwebs.
