scott reviewed this product on 06/16/08 I JUST BOUGHT THESE CLUBS AND ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS WOW! I'VE BEEN USING 2 SETS OF CLUBS AND THEY ARE MIXED. I WAS WORRIED ABOUT BUYING KNOCK OFF CLUBS AND I TOOK A CHANCE AND IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST DECISIONS I MADE. HALF OF MY OLD CLUBS WERE GRAPHITE AND THE OTHER WERE STEEL. I'VE NEVER TRIED A HYBRID CLUB, I TOOK THESE TO THE RANGE AND I COULD HIT THEM OUT OF A DIVOT! THE IRONS ARE VERY FORGIVING, AND I ADDED ABOUT 10 YARDS ON EACH CLUB! I WOULD RECOMMEND THESE TO ANY ONE WHO IS AN AVG GOLFER AND WHO IS SHORT ON MONEY AND SPEND MORE MONEY ON GAS AND GREEN FEES JUST TO BE UPSET AND THERE CURRENT SET OF CLUBS!
Shawn O'. rated this product on 05/29/08 Let me just reiterate what has already been said by many on this site, fast and very friendly customer service. The clubs arrived on time and looked beautiful. I have not golfed in several years for a couple of reasons: 1. shoulder injury 2. I could hit the ball far but not straight. After some serious deliberation about getting back into the sport, I began my search for a very forgiving set of clubs. I was told by the Pinemeadows personnel to consider purchasing the Excel Strong iron/hybrid set. I went with their recommendation and purchased the 3-5 hybrids with the graphite shafts and the 6-PW irons. I did upgrade the grips. After they arrived I immediately took them to the range. My very first stroke with the 3 hybrid, the ball sailed straight and 250 yds. Keep in mind, I am swinging pretty slow and somewhat hesitant. Time and time again, I had the same result. I moved through the rest of the hybrids and irons and found I hit the ball better than I could ever remember. That is not to say I didn't hit a few terrible shots but I know that was thanks to my own swing mechanics. I plan on purchasing my wife a set and taking some lessons. Again, the clubs can only do so much, the rest is the person swinging them but these were so sweet to hit. I have a renewed interest in the sport. I did order the Command Q4 driver and had about the same success as I always have had with drivers...none. This has nothing to do with the driver and everything to do with me. I will write a review when I learn to properly hit a driver. In the meantime, I am sure I will do fine with my hybrids off the tee. Thanks Pinemeadow, Shawn
EddieC rated this product on 05/13/08 Having used clone blades for the past 5 years, I was certain that the savings offered by "Going Clone" was the way to go. So I jumped on the internet and was on my way to purchase a new set. As I pulled up several vendors to comparison shop, I found that I kept getting lost at the other sites by poor webpage design and therefore, I kept coming back to the PM site for reference. I have to say this site is the easiest to use and is “The” gold standard in the industry. This is the first reason I decided to buy from PM. Because I want my internet shopping experience to be quick and easy. I also found it was the only site to offer basic club fitting information as well as easy access via hyperlink for upgrading shafts and grips. All this with descriptions and pictures and the program never strays away from your shopping cart! Anyway, I'm sure you've noticed the same because there are way to many sites out there that loose business in the first few clicks because they are too cluttered and confusing. So I placed my order, got the clubs within days and took them straight to the range. MAN HAVE I BEEN STOKED!! Each club hits the sweet spot and I certainly needed that as an 82+ golfer. Having never used hybrids, I'll never go back. The 3-5 hybrids make the difference on and off the ruff. I no longer carry 3-5 woods because of it. I upgraded to the graphite shafts and am glad I did. My shots are coming off the club straight and true. On ball strike, I rarely get any vibration unless I totally miss the ball and chunk it. I’ve played 10 times on a few different courses and my experience has been the same throughout. I am very satisfied and have quickly shaved some strokes off my game. I also believe I’m hitting the ball further than I used to. Buy these clubs! They are well worth the price at a discount of 70% compared to name brand and are well served by a company that still knows the meaning of customer service and satisfaction.
Matt rated this product on 04/14/08 After taking a golf lesson my instructor told me that my original clubs were too short for me. A friend recommended Pine Meadow Golf for my new set of clubs. I ordered the Excel Strong Irons Hybrid set with graphite shafts. The day after I received my clubs I took them out to the range. I noticed that most if my shots felt better and were straighter. I then took them out to the course the next week and found that these clubs were 15-20 yards longer than my previous set of clubs. These clubs made it easier to get the ball out of the rough as well as get the ball up in the air when in the fairway. After my wife saw the improvement these clubs made in my game, she is planning on purchasing her next set from Pine Meadow Golf.
Bdub rated this product on 03/16/08 I am 14 years old and hove only been golfing for a year. I recieved my set of clubs about a week after I ordered them. I have taken them out to the course about 5 times and have noticed a big difference in my game. Before I had these clubs I was hitting around a 100. Now that I have these clubs I am hitting around an 85 and am making great contact with the ball. The clubs add a lot more hight and seem to have a bigger sweet spot. I am very pleased with my clubs.
