They look a lot like Cory Pavin's Cleveland clubs...and Miller Barber had some anti shank clubs. So you cast some block of metal, grind it out and connect it with screws. This will be short lived in my mind.

Interesting concept but its ultimately a tough sell to offer a product that doesn't look so great at a really high price. I think there would have to be a serious performance benefit. And not to be difficult but I almost feel like I am missing the boat here - what problem are they trying to solve by being modular? Why do we need modular clubs?

I went to the website to check them out and immediately came back to scroll through the comments to find the VAS reference.
I mean, it's not a completely un-earned reference, but they're nowhere near that ugly. I actually kinda like the way the back of the club looks, but I'm not sure I buy into all the marketing hype and I'm definitely 100% out at that price.

I will say I don't at all hate the looks of that Detroit putter - but at $2500, they can go straight to hell. :LOL:

Hideous and price....hard pass. I need to be able to look at something with confidence rather than question myself if I made a bad decision and be stuck with these clubs for the next five years because I wouldn’t be able to sell them for 50% on the dollar. I see this market being very very limited.

At that price, you'd definitely take a bath on resale or trade-in.

Uh ok.

$420 I might pay for a driver. That’s about what I usually spend on a 6-8pc iron set that’s gently used.

If their stuff isn’t better than what I’m using by leaps and bounds, maybe they’re the new Boob Parsons?

I’m not saying neither or either company isn’t putting out a great product. But you can **** me sideways before a pay $400 for a damn wedge.

JMHO.

I also will point out that my decent angle pretty much negates spin so I don’t need it. I can stop an old and worn out 52* oil can inside of a foot of a brand new whatever.

So I don’t need new and at those prices I won’t be buying used.

This concept doesn't make sense to me. I can buy a few clubs for the price of one which defeats the purpose of it being modular.

Seems like an attention grabbing ploy. And an answer searching for a question noone asked.

Not in the wild no but Peter Finch reviewed the wedges yesterday and results were pretty darn good
