Luke rated this product on 10/30/07 My clubs arrived Thursday 13-Oct , thats just 10 days from ordering to arrival at my front door here in the UK. I certainly didnt experience any unexpected costs from UPS UK that some people claim to have done - perhaps they did'nt realise they have to pay VAT and Import Duty (which is paid to Customs through UPS by one phone call). As a beginner I was advised not to buy the big names Callaway Ping etc until I new exactly what I wanted, in case I needed custom lengths, stiffness or just lost interest in the game etc, and to buy "budget" set to start with. I was about to buy some from a chain store when I discovered you site..... and I am very glad did!!! I ordered the Excel Strong Hybrid set with the matching driver & 3 wood and the Xeon M-4 putter and after reading all the other testimonials on this site I also went for the Crossline Grip upgrade ( & Winn on the putter) . The clubs certainly look and feel fantastic and the Xeon putter is great, I can't really comment on how good/bad the other clubs are compared to any other brands cos it's my only on my 5th lesson...(I've let some other people try the clubs, and while they were very subdued, the results they were getting said enough!!!) .... I am another very happy customer.
Dustin Hicks rated this product on 08/01/07 I recieved my set of Excel Strong Hybrid clubs last friday (7/27/2007).After hitting them on the driving range that night I decided to play a round on Sat. morning. For the first few holes I was nervous playing with new clubs but after hole 4 I began to se the difference between my new clubs and my old ones.Now considering my average score for 18 holes is between 95-105,I broke 90(86)for the first time with my new clubs.The big difference for me were the hybrid clubs.From 215yds out the ball was hitting the green and checking up within 10ft of the ball mark with the 3H.Also the short irons have alot of bottom weight so its easy to blast out of the sand. I think the only concern I have with these clubs is that I'm still getting used to difference in distance that I get with my new clubs.My father was so impressed with my new set that he ordered his own set on Sunday(7/29/2007).
Bob Packard rated this product on 07/02/07 Got my new clubs on Friday evening, UPS took them 7 days, 11 cities, handled 22 times and didn't hurt them at all thanks to some great packageing. Thanks Pinemeadow! Clubs look great except for Excel decals on back of iron heads, I keep trying to smooth them out. Playability just great. I shot 73 Saturday and 74 Sunday. Our course is par 68, my handicap is 9. Shot 69 Friday, my age, with my Excel Mid launch irons. I like the feel with the new irons and the 2 and 4 hybrids are very easy to hit. For me I find the graphite better than my Apollo steel. Some of my playing companions are playing Callaway and I can't see any real difference. I have lowered my handicap over the past year and qualified for the Champion flight in our club championship and finished 7th. Pinemeadow makes real clubs for real people at real prices. Thanks
Tony Hall rated this product on 06/29/07 Bought the three hybrid, 6-SW set. Never went to the range. I just had to hit these clubs. Split the fairway with my first hybrid shot! Approach shot to the green, couple of putts, par. Kinda scary, but I really enjoyed my round. I am a 15 handicapper. Didn't shoot my best round, but made solid contact the entire round and am looking forward to getting back on the course tomorrow! The price was so right that even my wife complimented me on spending "my" money wisely. I can't thank my friend that recommended your product to me enough and I'm looking forward to taking his skin money this weekend. Great product!!! Keep up the good work. (Maybe I will try a putter soon).
