曲がらない 伝説の名器 Callaway C4 ドライバー

    Callaway C4は、鳴り物入りで発表されたのに、あまりの不人気さにすぐに消えていったドライバーの一つ。人気がないせいで、中古価格は壊滅的激安状態。ebayでは20ドル台後半で取引きされることも・・・

    Callawayは、これで何万個もの在庫を抱えてしまい、しばらく経営危機の噂が業界で流れ続けた・・・という逸話も残っている ある意味伝説のドライバー

    ただし、性能はピカイチ。あなどれません。

    今となっては逆に新鮮さを感じる360ccヘッドは、カーボンコンポジット。
    主流となった460ccの大きさに、ちょっとお馬鹿さんぽいところを感じている人には最適な大きさ。

    そして、とにかく直進性がバツグン。曲げようと思っても、曲がらないぐらい。
    打感も打球音も、まるで昔のパーシモン(甲高い金属音が主流の中、地味な打感・打球音が不人気の理由だったらしい)。 
    だけど飛距離は不思議なことにかなり出ます。時々とんでもなく出ます。ミスヒットにも異様に強く、どこでヒットしても、そこそこ飛んでいきます。

    やさしさを求めて最新型を探しているなら、C4を買ってしまった方がいいかも。これだけ安いと、リシャフトして、自分専用モデルを作ってしまう手もある。

    ちなみにアニカ・ソレンスタムも2002年はC4を愛用。かなり気に入っていて、その年これを使って8回優勝しています。実はこれ名器です。

    I have been using the C4 for 4 years. I choose it because I noticed I hit better with a light weight head. When I hit the ball well I hit as far as anyone I play with, 250-275 yards. But, I do occasionally slice a bit because it has a regular shaft and I should be using a stiff shaft. Other than that, I love the club.
    このクラブを4年使ってるよ。これを選んだ理由は、軽いヘッドの方がうまく打てるってことに気づいたから。うまく打ったら、250-270ヤード。いっしょに回ってる仲間の誰より遠くに飛ぶね。だけど、レギュラーシャフトなんで、時々ちょっとスライスする。スティッフシャフトを使うべきなんだろうね。それ以外は、このクラブには大満足さ。

    I have purchased a number of the 9 deg C4's Stiff Flex on ebay over the past few months.The open face suits my stong left hand grip. This club despite been 6-7 years out of production is possibly the most user friendly and consistent, that I have hit, and also quite long off the tee. I hit approx. around 270 yards to 280 yards in summer conditions ・・・
    数ヶ月前にebayで9度のC4のスティッフシフトを買ったんだ。オープンフェイスは、自分の強めの左のグリップにあってるな。このクラブは6-7年前に生産が終わってるんだけど、多分一番ユーザーフレンドリーで、安定してるクラブだろうね。夏のコンディションで、だいたい270-280ヤードはぶっ飛んでいくよ。

    Bought my c4 driver in 2004 and have been using it since. It took some time to get used to it. It has been generating distances upto 300 yds on average with the slight unintentional draw. Am very satisfied with this one.
    2004年に買ってからずっと使ってる。慣れるまでちょっとかかったけどね。ちょっとアンインテンショナルなドローがかかって平均300ヤードぐらい飛ぶね。こいつには大満足だ。

    This is the longest most forgiving driver I have hit. I have never had confidence in my drives until now. I am only 5'6" ~160 lb and hit 260-270 yard drives regularly. Don't mind the sound at all.
    こいつはこれまでで一番距離が出て優しいドライバーだね。こいつを使うまで自分のドライバーには自信がなかったんだ。自分はたった5.6フィート(170センチぐらい)、160ポンド(70kgぐらい)なんだけど、だいたい260-270ヤードは飛ばせるからね。音はまったく気にならないよ。

    Summary:
    I am a bit of an equipment junkie, in the last 3 years I have probably bought, tried and sold about 30 different sets of irons of all the Major brands, all bought on Ebay and imported due to the bargains one can get. I was always a "blade" user in my early days but I figured as I got older I would go to more alleged "forgiving" irons as blades have that reputation as "hard to hit". I must have used every set of Mizuno, Titleist, Cleveland, Honma, Nike Irons they have made left handed but I was never ever completely happy. My greatest regret was selling a set of Mizuno TP9's I happily used for about 4 years before going on my iron trek that just wont end, maybe until now. I saw a set of Tommy Armour 845M blades on 3balls on ebay. I then went to this site and was taken aback by the overwhelming glowing positives that have been written about this model by all that have used them, they have that old blade look that I have yearned for, so I bought them for a song. They were in quite "good" condition, not new, but OK. First thing I noticed was the weight in the head, a lot heavier than all of the newer Mizuno and Titleist blades I have tried. I loved it !!! I can feel the head again, I know where it is. I now think that the Major manufacturers of "tour" type irons over the years have made them too light. This model is noticebly heavier in the head. I used them for one round and have got that "feel" back that I have been looking for. NO LOSS OF DISTANCE at all, which I am happy with. Solid contact has that soft buttery feel that I used to remember with my TP9's and not with anything else I have used. They look great at address and inspire confidence. Off centre shots suffer a little but I can live with that. I am back to taking divots again. I can only concur with all the other reviews that are written about this set of irons. I only wish I could get a NEW set somewhere, it is a 2003 model and no longer being made.

    Summary:
    I bought a brand new set for $249 at a discounter almost two years ago. There is no doubt in my mind that this is the best value in forged irons out there. The club looks impeccable at set-up and feels even better at impact. Distance and trajectory control are remarkable, as is workability.
    I've played Mizuno forged irons growing up and was very happy, but this is an even more impressive golf club.

    Summary:
    I have been playing golf since I was seven (nearly 20 years) and have been playing to a + handicap for 3 years now. Earlier this year I was at the range when the pro came over with a set of these irons he had just bought. He asked me if I would like to have a hit for ten minutes and my god they are unbelievable irons. I have several sets of irons myself which all cost serious bucks and I have to say I am jealous, if I could find them, I would buy them. My only gripe is that they do notcome with many customisation options, I myself play with tour velvet ribbed grips and extra stiff rifled shafts etc but these cannot be added before purchase so would cost me more in the long run but believe me guys they are definitely worth it. If you can find a set, buy it you would be mad not to and if you find a set but don't want them, let me know because I'll definitely be all over that.

    Summary:
    Far and away the best blade I have ever hit, even though they were significantly less. Softest feel, longest (with more control), and most forgiving, which is a suprise with the minimal offset. Thought I loved my TA-3's, but decided i needed something with less offset. Hit Nike, Titliest, Mizuno, Hogans, and Cleveland blades as well, but kept going back to these (Even before I knew they were a couple hundred bucks cheaper). Distance control ceased to be an issue, and the fact that I hit the 845 3-iron farther than my TA-3 2 iron meant I could add another wedge. Last year picked up an 845m 1-iron for 15 bucks on EBAY, and, although I don't trust hitting it off the ground, it is just as good as the rest of the set. An awesome club on tight par-4's, and almost as long as my 3 wood. IF you can still find them, try them. You will be amazed.

    Summary:
    In my days of golf, I've hit quite a few brand name clubs. In order to get the right feel, you owe it to yourself to try anything you can get your hands on. Nowadays, you can try out many different top brands. Once you get the feel, you'll know what you can best work with. The 845Ms are what I feel the most confident with after trying out numerous differnt top brands of clubs. These are of exceptional value and are made of stellar quality. They look beautiful too! I agree to the other reviews; they are the best kept secret in muscle back blades. If you can find them, don't hesitate to give them a try.

    Tommy Armour 845 m forged muscle back

    Summary:
    I'm going to let you in on a secret. Tommy Armour 845 Muscle Backs are the best value in a players club, or just about any club for that matter, ANYWHERE! They are more forgiving than any of the Mizuno forged series (Comp EZ included), Titleist forged, and rate higher in the MPF (Maltby Playability Factor)than many of the well known game improvement clubs (Ping I3, Taylor Made RAC, VFoil, etc.) Make no mistake this is a players club- thin top line, little offset, narrow sole, but is is the softest feeling, most forgiving club I have ever owned (or hit) You can buy thes on Ebay, golf warehouse, etc. for about $225 new. Even at retail ($599)they they are a tremendous value compared to Mizuno, Titleist, Ping, and the like. I liked them so much I bought a 2nd set since they have discontinued this model. I don't ever see changing clubs again and I have owned a lot of clubs in my time. Buy them if you can find them they are the best secret in golf.

    If you are looking for a quality great feeling forged golf club you owe it to yourself to try these. I feel these are one of the best kept secrets in golf clubs. I was at a demo day and hit everything from Nike, Wilson, Taylormade, Cleveland, Ben Hogan and didn't pay much attention to the Armour Tent as they didn't seem to have much but I stepped in to ask the Rep what he had new to try he pointed to a bag and said he hadn't gotten his demo's yet but said I was welcome to hit his personal set which was a combo set 3-6 cavity, 7-PW Muscle back from the first swing I couldn't believe the feel trajectory and distance. I asked him what was different from his versus what I would get off the rack. He said he ordered his 1 degree flat and that was all. I then thought I had just found my groove so I went back to CLeveland and Nike and gave them another try no competition the armours were the sweetest feeling and most consistant.

    I bought one of these on ebay a year or two ago. I always liked it. I get a better roll and results with it than with other putter I've tried, so I kept using it. I think I may have found something with this putter. While looking at an ad for the Heavy Putter with a mid balance point, I wondered how this putter would work if it were setup that way, (the PW-3 putter has a relative heavy head). So, I made up a weight with copper plumbers' tubing filled with melted led shot. I set the weight to reach my desired balance point, and wraped it in tape to seal it, and mounted in the but end of the shaft. HOLY SMOKE, what a difference! the extra weight was just what it needed, it refined the feel, smoothed out my stroke, improved the roll, and improved my accuracy by quite a bit. I don't know if this will work for everybody, you would need to like a heavier feeling putter; but for me it made an already good putter a GREAT putter.

    After using many putters with this insert and that insert, I decided I wanted something real basic. I had my eyes on a Cameron Newport Stainless but they are pricey-even used. So when I came across the DeLaCruz stainless putters, I thought maybe they would have the same feel. Luckily, the company is very near my home, so I was able to go by and try one out. At $100 new, they don't break the bank. The feel is very close to the Cameron (in my opinion) and I like the heavier feeling head (365gm). There is a ball well behind the face that helps on the practice green. The sight lines and alignment dots are excellent and overall the putter has a good clean look at address. Comes with a sharp looking blue grip w/ company name.

    The second time out with it, I shot a personal best (74) and made quite a few putts with it. My playing partner even commented how good my speed was on all my putts. I certainly think it has helped with speed and I also feel very confident with it 5 feet and in, something I didn't feel with my other putters.

    Give these a look and try one out. I got mine on eBay, and I think other than that you have to buy from their website, www.delacruzgolf.com. Well worth the price!

    スイングをよくしたいなら メディカス2000  ひたすら素振りですたい!

    伝説のスイング矯正器?メディカス2000。  全世界で50万本も売れたとか・・・ 

    スイングプレーンを外れると、たちまちシャフトがポキッと折れてしまいます。 まるで専属個人トレーナーのように、一振り、一振り、自分の癖やスイングの欠点を教えてくれるという優れものです。 しかも、嫌な顔一つせず、嫌味も言わない。 
     


    ボールも打てますが、ひたすら素振りがお薦め。 やっぱりこういうのは秘密の特訓でしょ。
    ( 練習場で打つと、かなーり恥ずかしい・・・)
     
    ゆっくり、ゆっくり振って、マッスル・メモリーに正しいスイングプレーンを叩き込むのがポイント。
    右ひじのたたみ方、コックの使い方、切りかえし等々・・・あら不思議、自然にちゃんとできちゃいます。 ( スイングを見て、レッスンプロについて習ってたでしょって言われたことあります。)
    練習場で自己流で打ちまくるぐらいなら、自宅でメディカスを毎日素振りした方が100倍マシという話も。
     
    スイングの改善にこれは効きます。 ベテランでも、スイングのチェックに使ってる人が多いようです。 
    安定したショットは、スコアアップに結びつくこと請け合い!


    男は黙って、ひたすら素振りですたい! 女も黙って、ひたすら素振りですたい! 

     
     


    全盛時代のデービス・ラブ3世を教えていたベテランPGAインストラクターもお薦め


    普通の人がやったらどうなるか・・・




    使用者のコメント (訳はすごく適当)

    This club really works! In the short time I've had it, it has really helped correct my swing. I tried the club at a friends house one weekend and couldn't believe the improvement in my swing. Once I got home, I ordered the club on Tuesday.
    このクラブはホントに効くね! ちょっとの時間使ってみたんだが、ほんとにスイングの矯正の助けになったよ。週末に友達の家で試してみたら、信じられないことにスイングが良くなったんだよ。で、家に帰って、火曜に注文しちゃったよ。

    Highly recommend. Product shows swing faults and forces you to swing slowly, smoothly and with tempo. Grooves your swing.
    超お薦め。スイングの間違いを教えてくれるし、ゆっくり、スムーズにテンポをもって振るようにさせられるんだ。
    あんたのスイングを楽しんでみてくれ。

    This club is amazing. I have been golfing for three years now and like most, I am not very consistent. This club works. It is well worth the money. Spend a little time with it and your swing will be much improved.
    このクラブは驚きだね。3年ゴルフやってきて、ゴルフが一番好きだけど、スイングがまったく一定じゃなかったんだ。このクラブは効いたね。お金を払うだけの価値が十分あるよ。少しの時間で、スイングがすごく良くなるんだから。



    アマゾンでも売ってました
