Stix in the Press
"Coyne cites Harry’s Razors and Dollar Shave Club as the Stix Golf model as companies that offer a lower-priced alternative to established names. He puts the Stix set as occupying a space between the discount box sets at sporting goods stores and the $3,000 that could be spent to buy a full set of premium clubs."
"By identifying a potential value gap in the golf club market, Stix has positioned itself well to tap into a robust consumer base in one of the nation’s biggest participation sports. And since more than 2/3 of golfers can’t break 90, there are plenty of participants out there more concerned with experience over technology."
"... the recently launched Stix Golf has created its own market: beautiful, minimalist, modern clubs at a good price...The Stix clubs are manufactured by an established OEM that makes components for many of the big brands and they feel as good as they look."
"Three years ago, Gabe Coyne set up a few golf outings with friends who were gradually migrating back to the sport.For many, life responsibilities had put tee times on the backburner. Careers, marriages and children took priority. Yet here they were, in their mid-30s, dusting off the clubs and rekindling the golf flame."
Stix offers sleek, minimalist clubs that deliver amazing quality without the crazy price tag.
"This box set could have the big brands VERY WORRIED"
"After my pleasant experience with their complete box set, I can certainly see the appeal. Golf is supposed to be fun. Sure, it can be expensive to have the most recent club technology and the flashy clubs, but it doesn’t have to be."
"The Stix Golf Complete Set contains 14 clubs from driver through to putter. The set comprises a driver; 3- and 5-woods; 4 hybrid; 5-iron through to pitching wedge; three wedges – 52° 56° and 60° – and a putter. I tested them on the range and by playing nine holes with them at West Hill Golf Club."
"Whether you're just learning or an experienced weekend golfer, these thoughtfully crafted clubs should help you score lower and smile wider. For $900, these are an absolute steal, with quality that rivals premium sets and a silky-smooth modern style that will leave the country club old-timers gossiping."
So, whether you’re looking for a set of clubs to get into the game, you’re taking your game more seriously, or you’re happy being a casual golfer but want to upgrade to a higher-quality, better-looking set of clubs, Stix checks every single one of those boxes.
Since more than two-thirds of golfers can’t break 90, how many strokes will clubs with the latest technological advancements really knock off their scores? So, what’s the average golfer to do if they want to improve their clubs, but also don’t want to break the bank?
"There’s usually the cheapos that start around $300 and you don’t want any part of those if you are a grown human being with dignity. All of a sudden it then jumps to nearly $1000... which isn’t bad, but doesn’t necessarily get you excited. Oh and by the way – those will run you $77 a club. Over $20 more per club than Stix, and let me tell you, Stix will outperform in every facet of those junkies."
“Stix applies a ‘less is more’ philosophy to its design to bring golfers a club that provides quality without a hefty price tag. Its designers utilize advanced technology and the best materials to ensure that the clubs perform and hold up. And they have an up-to-the-minute, minimalistic design that any golfer would be proud to pull out of their bag.”
"The Stix Clubs are easy to get up in the air—they're effortless! Even though they are certainly not forged clubs, they come close to that "soft, buttery feel you get with a forged club. They definitely seem like they have some pop to them, which will be great for beginners and mid-to-high handicappers."
"Stix has what we believe is the best complete set of clubs for under $1k. If you're a new golfer up to a mid-handicap - you should absolutely consider Stix for you next set of clubs."
