What's a golf club clone?
If you're new to clone golf clubs, you may have questions about what clone golf clubs are and how they compare to the clubs they resemble. If you've seen one of your friends play with it or played with it yourself, you may be wondering how such quality clubs can be made for so much less. We'll answer that in a minute. But if you're completely new to golf club clones, the simple answer is that golf club clones resemble pro line clubs in almost every way. The truth is, you may have seen friends and fellow golfers play with clones and not even realize it. Golf club clones are made from the same high-quality materials that pro line clubs are, and often in the same foundries. This means that not only do they look like pro line clubs, and feel like pro line clubs, they also perform like pro line clubs. Because we know that when you're up at 7 on Saturday morning in order to shave a few strokes off your score, nothing else really matters.
Why do clone golf clubs cost so much less?
They look, feel and play much like the real thing-so why do they cost so much less? In some cases, clone golf clubs of pro line clubs cost hundreds of dollars less than the name brands. You may be wondering how retailers like Diamond Tour Golf are able to offer such reduced prices on golf club clones if they look, feel and play like the pro line clubs, without sacrificing something during the manufacturing of the club. And if you are the type who believes that higher price means higher quality, it may be hard to convince you otherwise. But the truth is, because clone golf companies do not have large ad campaigns, high-cost sponsorships, and excessive marketing budgets, clone companies do not need to inflate club prices to cover those expenditures. The savings comes back to you, the golfer.
Why choose clone golf clubs over name brands?
Start with the price! As we mentioned, a golfer can get a clone club for hundreds of dollars less than the name brand. Put this money back into time on the green with your new clone golf clubs, and you stand to improve your game substantially. This in itself is probably enough to convince most golfers to try them, but when you add customization it becomes even harder to justify spending the extra money for a pro line club.
Think about your favorite pro line club. Now think about how much better it would be if you could customize it to your own personal specifications. Pro line clubs aren't fitted for the golfer or their game, but clone golf clubs can be customized to meet your needs. Why is this important? If you've never played with a customized club before, you can think of customization as being a lot like buying a new suit. If you want your suit to look the best on you, you have a tailor fit it to your body. Otherwise you run the risk of tripping on baggy cuffs or busting buttons. When the suit is tailored, movement is unhindered, the look is sharp, and you can be confident that the suit you're wearing will allow you to perform your best. Likewise, when you're playing with a customized clone golf club, you're playing with a club that is made for your height and your swing.
How do clone golf clubs perform?
Close your eyes and see if you can tell the difference. Clone golf clubs of your favorite brand name clubs play just like the real thing. In fact, all other things being equal, we would put our clone clubs up against any pro line club out there. And if you customize your clubs to fit your body, we think there's a pretty good chance you'll have the advantage over the prestige golfer who uses the club with the fancy label and thinks it will help him out of the sand trap. But don't take our word for it. Try them out and see for yourself! With prices as low as these, you really don't have much to lose.
