Back to Counterfeit Chinese Callaways
So back in Palm Springs again for some sun, shopping, and golf. This year I’ve gone back to my counterfeit Chinese Callaway clubs. These are the black and red Big Bertha irons, and the accompanying driver and woods. After having two great seasons on golf course in northern Montana, Palm Springs, Calgary Alberta, and eastern British Columbia, I thought I would upgrade from my counterfeit Chinese made Big Berthas, and buy some Nike irons, and the Nike Sasquatch driver. Big mistake.
After a few bad rounds with my brand new Nike irons, I figured that it would a matter of getting used to the new clubs. I was wrong. I never did “get used to” my Nike irons, and the Sasquatch never got down the center as consistently as my Big Bertha did. I gave it a good shot, but this year I went back to my counterfeit Callaway clubs. My first round was in Palm Springs at the Desert Springs golf course. This golf course is forgiving with it’s wide fairways, and limited water and sand hazards. Still – I shot an honest 79 which was very respectable. Had a birdy or two, and a good run of pars. These counterfeit clubs are like using an old friend, and making a great shot was easy!
I’ve had to change the shafts on half of these counterfeit Big Bertha irons, as the original shafts broke at the hozzle. Some repair shops would not re-shaft the broken irons because they were obviously Chinese counterfeit clubs, but I finally did find a shop that WOULD repair them with brand new stiff shaft, and a solid and strong hozzle union.
I’ll provide a picture of these counterfeit Callaway golf clubs, and show the original graphit shafts, and the newly repaired steel shafts.
How Much Does it Cost to Buy Chinese Counterfeit Golf Clubs
I bought a full set of irons (3 iron to sand wedge), driver, 3 wood, 5 wood, putter, travel bag, Callaway big bag (black), and head-covers – all for only $200!!!!!!!
