To start off, I'm 30 years old and play golf once or twice a week. I was very happy to purchase my own new clubs instead of using old hand-me-downs. The clubs arrived in PERFECT factory new condition which was awesome. I went out today to play with them at the small par 3 course near my house and was very happy, they looked and performed very well! They are very forgiving cavity-back clubs, I was getting good results even when hitting off the toe. When struck pure, they hit much further than I did with my old clubs. The ONLY downside I have noticed is that these clubs are absolutely not going to stay pretty for long at all! I have attached 4 pictures. The first is what the clubs looked like brand new in my bag (you'll notice I had to buy a 50 degree gap wedge because the loft gap between the set's P and S wedges). The other 3 pictures are three different clubs... after only being swung ONE SINGLE TIME... Understandably though, any golf club at all is going to show wear once you bash it into the ground a few times; these clubs will just show it more because of the black finish. I will say though, on the 6 iron you can see by the tee and ball mark I didn't hit a great shot at all, yet my ball hit the green and stuck from 150 yards away which was great! Like I said, the clubs performed phenominally and I was overall very happy with them. They look great, and I am very glad I have some cool looking, great performing clubs of my own now! I'm sure after a few months they'll start to look like used golf clubs, only more noticeable because of the black finish. That's the main reason I bought them though was because they look cooler than plain silver clubs. For (what I consider) to be premium golf clubs, these were very low priced. I'd recommend these for anyone who wants some nice new clubs that will stand out a bit from other clubs. They obviously won't make you play perfect, but I like them a lot more than my old clubs! Thanks, Team Stix for designing and creating my golf clubs! I like them a lot.
I took a chance on these after watching Rick Shiels review them. I put these clubs up against some of the top irons out there: T300s and 921 Hot Metals and I can honestly say they more than held their own. I was a little worried because Rick’s clubs did arrive with some dings in them. The irons shipped quickly and arrived very well packed with double bubble wrap on the heads which was nice. Only the 8 iron had a small ding on the cavity back.
Irons look great, the black finish is really nice and slims the topline, blade length is great and soles are wide which is to be expected. It looks like it is going to wear over time but even the top manufacturers that do a black pvd finish have that happen to them so it is to be expected.
I was a little worried that the stiff flex graphite shaft may play too light or whippy but it can definitely hold its own against my 88mph 6 iron swing speed.
I was very impressed by the sound and feel off the face, for a game improvement/cavity back iron. Not too loud or clicky, just a nice muted crack. Good flight and as I said on center strikes it performed the same as the Titleist and the Mizuno.
The only drawbacks I found are on mishits I did lose about 3-4 yards in distance versus the other irons and I did not like the stock grip. It feels a little thin but I changed it out because I normally play midsize grips anyway.
For $299 for 5-SW you’d be hard pressed to find a better set. Definitely worth a try!
I took these out to the course this weekend without even hitting the range. They were great! I was able to turn the ball and shape shots as needed and had enough forgiveness to keep shots online. They compared great against my Mizunos. I’d highly Recommend trying them out.
I golf a handful of times each year at most and i’ve been using the same clubs for 15 years. I’m so stoked to have found a sick looking set of irons that hits just as well as my friends Callaway sets that are 2-3x the price. These are even better looking in person and better than anything I’ve seen on the market. (Unless you’re Tiger Woods, a crazy expensive set of pro clubs is not going to change your game).
