Perfect Set For The Budget Minded, Discerning Golfer

IN STOCK!

I want to start out by saying that Hireko’s clubs are not expensive to begin with. In fact, far from it as our club are often 2/3rd the cost of name brand clubs. But there are a certain segment of golfer’s that don’t know yet if they want to take up this game we enjoy so much and invest that much money in a set of clubs. The Tour Gear line was designed specifically for this type of golfer seeking value as well as performance.

Let’s start out with the biggest budget buster in the bag – the driver. The Tour Gear 460cc driver is the perfect confidence-building size for a beginning player. It is forged from 7075 aircraft grade aluminum to have the same size and weight as today’s titanium driver, but at a fraction of the cost.

You are probably asking “What does the player give up going to this versus a comparable sized titanium driver?” That is a legitimate question. In all honesty, the forgiveness is no different since the head is hollow and all of the weight is in its perimeter. Where the difference lies is in the face thickness and subsequently the ball velocity off of the face. Most titanium drivers have a thin 3mm face or perhaps thinner. An aluminum face has to be much thicker to withstand the force of striking a ball therefore there is a slight drop off in ball speed coming off the club.

Where the modern driver is just below the 0.830 COR limit set forth by the USGA, the Tour Gear driver would be in the neighborhood of 0.800 or roughly what the older 250cc stainless steel drivers measured. What is this amount to in layman’s terms? Figuring the beginning player, if it is a male swinging close to 85 mph and he might only give up 5 yards with all else being the same, which isn’t much especially when you consider the price difference. That is what makes this a great value.

The matching fairway woods are the same popular size and shape as some of the fairways on the market. These are produced of aluminum as well. The Tour Gear fairways come with generous lofts; the 3-wood is 16 degrees and the 5-wood is 21 degrees. The added loft will be a great benefit for the beginning golfer.

There are two shallow face aluminum Tour Gear hybrids that should hit the ball higher and more accurately than a traditional 3 and 4-iron. Lastly, the Tour Gear irons feature a full cavity back and a generous face impact area. There is also a matching filament wound Tour Gear Renaissance graphite shaft to round out this series.

While the Tour Gear series does not have a specific putter, there are five economical zinc putters in different styles that can be added to fill out the set. One can put together a great looking set for roughly a fifth of the cost of a name brand clubs.

Important information for clubmakers

For clubmakers, there are a couple of important things you should know before building any of the Tour Gear clubs. Use ferrules designed for drivers rather than those listed for fairway woods as the hosel OD on the fairway woods needed to be made larger for strength. Using the fairway wood ferrule on the Tour Gear fairway woods will create an undersized situation and not provide a professional appearance.

The Tour Gear irons are made of zinc to help defray cost therefore the hosel had a much larger outside diameter for strength than a standard stainless steel design and will require a special ferrule. Choose the one listed as “Oversized” for the irons. However, if there is one disadvantage to zinc irons, these are not able to be bent for lie / loft alterations as the hosel will break.
