HAHA...

i got a second hand Nike Forged 2002 i got a from a friend from Ebay..

no life left..haha..

quite happy that it is still in the list....


There is alway going to be newer technology, a better driver that promises a longer drive, straighter ball...

you will need a lot of vitamin M to keep up..

After reading the article, I read the comments.... I think I would tend to agree with the comments more i.e. it's the Indian, not the arrow

Was my eyes cocked up... I saw Titleist 983K but nothing on my 905R... Does it mean it's dead and obsolete????

I would love to see what people have to say about the tour-issued TM Superquad 282 Very Happy

Nice to know that my L4V and R7 TP still have it in them, as well as the MP32s, RAC TP (not the same as RAC MBs), 585H (hybrid), R7 fairway woods (I wonder if HFS models count)

Not on list - Cleveland CG1 Black Pearl, RAC MB, Adams 9015D, 9016D, 9032LS Speedline Classic, and exotics like KZG Forged Z0 and Miura irons. Also nothing on the 905R (which is a more relevant bomber than the 983K, IMO) and the famed R510 TP

Aren't the Tour Edge Exotics really rebranded Sonartecs?

Have just retired my Nike SQ 460 Tour 9.5 (no serial no) for the Cobra ZL with Prototype K shaft. Sweet. That old faithful had been with me for the last 3 years at least and most of the latest brands could not kick it out of my bag. It will still stay with me as a back up driver.

Hmm.... It sure makes a good read. But I sometimes very suspicious of golf digest equipment reviews as they seem to give the best reviews to whoever pays.. anyone got similiar sentiments?

But htis article sure brings back many beautiful memories once had with those clubs. :>

Bro DS, you spend a lot of time talking to your clubs Smile

Just an observation.

Golf clubs have come a long way since I started playing golf. I am quite amazed at all the new equipment available nowadays.
