1) What is a Clone Club?
Golf club clones resemble pro line clubs in almost every way. Golf club clones are created from the same high-quality materials that pro line clubs are, and are often originating from the same foundries.
Clone clubs follow the new design concepts of the major brand names but at much lower costs and pass over the saving to the golfer. Custom Built Clone Clubs use the same shafts and grips as their brand name competitors. This means they can offer either the same or similar performance levels but are available at lower prices providing better value. The bottom line is that Clone Clubs not only look and feel like pro line clubs but also perform like pro line clubs.
2) Why do Clone Clubs cost so much less
a) Price Advantage: Often clone golf clubs cost hundreds of dollars less than the name brands. Clone clubs are frequently offered online by smaller custom club builders. Online sales are factory direct without the overhead costs of a traditional brick and mortar retailer. Because clone golf companies do not have large ad campaigns, high-cost sponsorships, and excessive marketing budgets, they do not need to inflate club prices to cover those expenditures. The savings come back to the golfer.
b) Custom Built Clubs: Pro line clubs are sold off the rack, i.e. are not fitted to the golfer’s individual needs. Custom golf clubs are often customized to the player’s individual specifications.
3) Why choose Clone Clubs over name brands?
a) Pro-line clubs are not fitted for the golfer or their game, but clone golf clubs can be customized to meet your individual needs. We are all unique and golfers come in all kind of sizes and shapes. Why should your club come off the assembly line if your swing did not come off the assembly line? Taller golfers need longer clubs. A golfer with a slower swing speed as well as senior golfers often requires a lightweight shaft with a softer tip section to get the ball airborne more easily. Most average golfers need a driver with higher lofts than are offered by ready-made clubs in big box stores.
The advantage of custom built clubs is that they are fitted to your individual needs. You don’t want to have to adjust your body to the golf club sets. Custom made clubs aid especially average and high handicapped golfers who have the most to gain because game improvements can be immediately realized. The easiest way to lower your golf score is to fit your clubs to your swing speed and physical body measurements.
