How do you review golf clubs?
You can review golf clubs, but it is not an easy thing to do. After all, what feels good for one person may not feel good for another person. There is a commodity in golf which is hard to put a finger on, but it is mostly referred to as "feel" and it is quite intangible. However, people's eyes do not deceive them, and by watching the trajectory of the ball after it is hit by the club you can tell a lot.

So how do you tell the difference between many golf clubs? Well, for one thing you cannot rely on the testing of human beings. Since what is right for the swing of one human being is not necessarily for another it would not be fair for one person to judge different golf clubs. A good example of this is with the Hammer driver made by Jack Hamm, which has to be swung as lightly and slowly as possible without losing all momentum.
So what a lot of reviewers do is to use a robot. The robot is programmed to swing all the clubs exactly the same way so that the result can be watched by the impartial observers. You can programme a robot to swing on different swing planes as well, to try and draw the ball or fade the ball. Of course you have a need when reviewing clubs for all other things to be equal, so you should make sure you are using the same ball and the same ground off which the balls are hit for each club too.
This section does not actually review the golf clubs, because we don't have robots at hand. What it does do is to provide a review of the golf club market, by looking at the major manufacturers. We will sometimes tell you about the history of the manufacturer, or about their range of clubs, or we will tell you about their most famous club. The point of this section is to give you an introduction to the range of golf equipment manufacturers on the market, as you may find the range of names out there quite bewildering.
We must stress as you go through the pages of the manufacturers on the list that we do not sell their golf clubs, nor do we represent them or their brand names specifically. You will in fact find a link to their home page at the bottom of the text on each page just so you don't get confused!
Anyway, it just remains to say that we cannot recommend a particular brand for you, but we do suggest that you try them out, as manufacturers are in this section because they have something real to offer you.
