Steve Jones rated this product on 11/19/21 Have the matching hybrid irons set for over a year. Needed to replace my older driver. This one arrived yesterday so I went out and played nine in the evening. 10-15 more yards right out of the box! I’m sold. Sounds like you’re hitting the ball with a coke bottle, but who cares?
Joe Fox rated this product on 08/25/21 Received my driver,3 wood and 5 wood about a month ago. I've played about 6 rounds with the new clubs. I couldn't be happier!! I'm 62 years old and had back surgery 2 years ago so I ordered the senior shaft because of my restricted back swing. I was lucky before with my old driver to hit the ball 225 yards. Now I'm getting another 30 to 40 yards when I put a good swing on the ball!! I'm around an 18-20 handicap player and I'm sure it will be a little lower in no time. I'm going to order the matching irons soon with the senior shaft and I'll tell you soon after how they work out for me. I'm also a lefty so the selection is limited. Also the price is fantastic !!
Stan Liebowitz rated this product on 08/23/21 I mistakenly gave this 3 stars shortly after receiving it although I intended to give it more as you can tell if you read the text. But I let it stay because I was lazy. Today I went to get fitted for a driver with the purpose of determining whether I could add 10 or 20 yards by spending $550 for a name brand. When I made the appointment I asked the fitter what the chances were that he could get me extra distance than what I achieved with my no-name (Pinemeadow) driver. He said 100%. During the fitting, the fitter tried a Ping, 2 Callaway's, and a Taylor Made. These were the top end models He also tried lowering the angle from 10.5 to 9.5. But what I found out, and he agreed at the end, was that he could not improve the performance of my drive by changing drivers to something much more expensive. He said I had flaws in my swing that if fixed could give me more distance (because I had a lot of backspin). Not only did the name brands not outdrive my ZR, but the ZR consistently gave me and extra 10-15 yards over the name brands and was no worse than the others in terms of the distribution of drives (I experienced much more of a fade then usual). Needless to say, I am more impressed with the ZR than I was before, and I was pretty happy with it before. The fact that the name brands did not go as far was a big surprise and quite a testament to Pinemeadow. The money I spent on the fitting will save me much in the future since I don't need to buy expensive clubs. Perhaps I should have held him to his 100% guarantee, but I didn't want to cause him any problems.
Joe Fox reviewed this product on 07/15/21 I recently purchased the ZR driver and fairway woods. My order arrived way ahead of schedule. Got the A flex because of recent back surgery, my swing speed is way down.I used them for the first time yesterday and what a great set of clubs!! At least 20-30 yards better with the driver. The fairway woods I didn’t get to use very much but I did hit them on the range when they arrived and I was very happy with them. My partners couldn’t believe how well I was driving the ball!! If keep hitting it like this I’m sure you’ll be getting some from them. Thank you!!
Larry Zaks rated this product on 06/19/21 I received the driver last Thursday and couldn't wait to try it out. I have a 25+ year old driver, but really have not used it. Also, I haven't played in quite a while (years) and recently started playing again and easing my way back into golf. I used the custom fitting guide and went with MRH with a standard length, regular flex Pinemeadow Limited graphite shaft and added a Lamkin Crossline Midsized grip with a red cap. This morning I hit a small bucket of balls followed by a quick 9 holes. I was delighted by the results once I got the feel of the club. I found I could consistently hit the ball pretty straight and was pleased with the distance of my drives. I think that as I continue to refine my swing as I ease back into the game, I'll pick up more distance and be able to hit my drives straighter and longer than I did 25+ years ago. As other have said, the the club makes a distinct sound when it compresses the ball - similar to the sound that an aluminum baseball bat makes when it makes solid contact with a baseball. At the range, the person next to me noticed the sound and asked if I was hitting a Ping driver. I told him it was a Pinemeadow ZR 3.0 that I was hitting for the first time. He asked me if I liked it and I responded "so far, so good!" Taking advice from YouTube videos on hitting a modern driver, I purchased longer tees (than the one I had in my bag) and teed the ball up so the waist of the ball was aligned with the top of the club when the club is resting on the ground. Then I placed it slightly forward of my left heel and swung away. The goal was to hit the ball at the beginning of my upswing. When executed properly, the ball took off like a shot! Overall, I am very satisfied so far and look forward using this club a lot!
