Sadly yes, it is RSH here, in Malaysia MST sell massive amounts...

Wilson have won more Majors than any other brand..... but again comes down to promotion.....

My 1st own set of clubs after my dad's hand-me-downs were the Wilson Matrix.

Still remember it was $699 for a set of 3 woods x 9 irons from RSH.

Played those for 3 years, got my pc, hdcp, brought my hdcp down from 22 to 17 before 'upgrading' to a set of Ram FX Tours.


That was back in end 1991 then.

I dont know mate, they sound like "marketing" words to me....

1. Visual Cues: Meticulous CAD design and Tour player feedback melds shape and size to deliver ultimate confidence at address.
2. CNC Milling and Max-Spec Grooves: Fine CNC milling carves the most aggressive grooves allowed under the new Rules of Competition. An additional milled pattern is etched into the face at the optimum angle of impact to deliver greater ball control from wet and long grass.
3. Unique Sole Designs: The 58 and 60 degree wedges feature hand grinds in the heel to lower the leading edge, allowing the face to be opened for more creative shot-making. Generous camber and bounce promote smooth turf interaction.

I like them, mind you I won my first event with Wilson, then like every other "smarty underpants" immediatly changed brand....

Going back to what works..... Beer (or should I say worked) also aged a lot since then....

Wah... Haven't heard anyone mention Golden Ram in years. Had a set of FX Nickel Graduated Cavity Backs myself. Soft feel and very nice blade design in the short irons. Hankered after the Tour Grinds that Tom Watson played, beautiful set but the blades were just too much club for me, they still are. lol

Still have a one of the last few quality forged Ram Tour Grind Wedges before the company went to the dogs and started mass marketing in K-Mart. Says "Forged USA" on the hosel. It's a keeper for sure.

speaking of wilson clubs.....I used the wilson deep red 365cc driver back n '01 or '02...it came in a cool maroon colour, had the biggest head at that time with a 46in 'fat' shaft (longest and definitely the fattest at the time)....made up for my feelings of inadequacy... I freakin' loved it.........

Yep Fat shaft was their thing, I think the big step was the "Killer Whale" Driver that John Daly used to win the PGA....

I have the wilson TW9 56*. Love it to death. had it for 6 months already. One of the few clubs I use alot and the grroves require minimal maintenance. Half the price of Vokeys but same results. At least to me that is....

I heard many good feedback on the TM XFT... I was holding back because of the 'patch' on the face... but maybe I should give it a try...

Thx bro for the suggestions! Very Happy

My fave chipmunk, the XFT gives a solid feel upon contact.....good wedge....plus comes with KBS wedge flex shaft. Feels solid.

Wanna try mine?

Wedge, that is. Very Happy
