Integra Driver Heads Anyone?

Post by pkcrafter » Tue Aug 07, 2007 8:23 am

I'm interested in buying an Integra driver head and I 'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the newest ones? I-Drive, Quad, SuperSoooLong?

Any thoughts on performance or quality?

How about Acer irons?

Thanks,

Paul

I have Acer irons, have served me well. The "pro" that pieced my set together said they are knock offs of a major brand and almost as good. For the price they were worth it to me (cheap). I am not altogether very good at golf, so I cannot provide much more feedback than that. Have never played with any other irons before.

Thanks, Tommy.

I've done some internet research on the Integra Quadratic and I think I'll give it a try—if I can get used to that big square head.

I'll also spec out some Acer iron heads and maybe assemble a few for testing.

bettega,

yeah, I'm also familiar with the Acura integra, but I didn't realize the confusion it would cause until I started Googling Integra.

Anyway, if anyone is interested, I did buy the Integra Quadratic head, 10.5. This thing is going to take some getting used to. Compared to by old 320cc head, this big square head looks like a mail box stuck on a stick. The stick is a Graman G Series 440. Just put the shaft in today. Tomorrow I'll cut to length and pop on the grip. I'll report back on performance.

My thoughts:

1. I like the square head drivers. My pro told me that they straighten out a lot of bad shots. I have hit them a couple times, and they do hit very straight.

2. The biggest drawback of the square head rivers I have hit is the darn noise. They sound like an aluminum baseballl bat. I can always tell when someone at the range is hitting a square head driver.

3. Be careful of knock off clubs. I had an R7 driver. My dad bough a clone. I hit his club and the two were nothing alike. He stopped using the club after a month and bought a Cleveland.

4. If you want to save money, I'd wait until some FT-is and Sasquatches become available on ebay. You should be able to get some at a good price in a year.
