I played Dynacraft irons many years ago and I know they were famous for having a clone of all the popular big brand clubs. Over the past couple years, I’ve been playing Golfworks irons and I do love them but people I play with are always making comments “those are copy cat irons” or “why did you get a set of clone irons?”
im almost second guessing myself. Golfworks irons aren’t copy cat irons are they? They are their own design aren’t they or not?
I don’t mean to knock your playing partners, but anyone who calls Maltby clubs copy cats or clones really don’t know what they’re talking about. And they probably have absolutely no knowledge of Ralph Maltby or the amazing team of experienced professionals at GolfWorks. Plus, they’ve believed the lie that only the big name brands produce quality clubs. Probably because they also believe all the hyped up ads they see! Can’t tell you how many of those “quality” clubs have come to me needing to be reshafted because they weren’t epoxied correctly! Hold your head high. Maltby’s are as good as any of them! Such foolish statements don’t need a response.
We design our own clubs based on the principles we know produce highly playable clubs. Principles developed by Ralph Maltby. We do not “copy” other designs. I could give you cases where our designs have been “copied” by “majors”, but I won’t go into that. We are an independent design company that design clubs that we believe are as good as any product on the market. Unfortunately we are lumped into the “component” category with companies that do sell similar clubs to OEM’s. The reason, I guess, is because we do sell components (shafts, grips, tools, supplies, etc.). Unfortunately, unless you have tour players playing your clubs, your product will not be seen or judged the same way as the “name brands”. Those that have a narrower view or knowledge of brands tend to put us in that category, or dismiss our clubs altogether. That’s OK. We know and are told everyday by players that do play our product that what we are producing are some of the best product a player could play. Interestingly enough, I just played a round with two young men heading for the tour qualifying school in Florida. Both played product you would expect (I won’t name brands). They looked in my bag and saw the new TS-1’s. I quote “Those look awesome.” They it a few shots, and re-iterated how “awesome” they were. Enough said for me.
