Subject: Why no negative feedback anywhere on the internet?

I want to start by saying that the concept makes sense to me, the golfer who likes to have fun and is yet to break 100.

What throws me off is the lack of any negative feedback. It reminds me of the saying if it seems to good to be true, it probably is. I can understand why there wouldn't be much negative feedback on this site, but why not anywhere on the internet?

I work at a private golf course in Southern California. I've spoken with all the PGA Pros here and they all have the same reaction; they think that the low irons would work fine but that the higher irons just wouldn't work well.

James:

Like you I searched every golf forum on the internet: Free Golf Info, Brain Manzella, Golf Opinions, Golf Digest, Graves Brothers, Natural Golf, RankMark, and about ten others. Every forum had numerous threads about 1 Iron Golf going back about eight years and a lot of the posters had purchased the clubs and posted their reviews (all excellent). The FGI forum had one thread that had 600 replies. In none of these did I ever see a single negative comment about the company or their customer service. I found only one post where someone had returned their clubs pursuant to 1 Iron Golf's 30 day return policy but the thrust of the poster's comment was how fantastic the customer service was.

This was a little over one year ago and I bought a full set of irons and woods at that time. Once you try these clubs you'll understand why you can't find any negative comments or negative reviews.

I have finally decided that the only way I will be able to see if the clubs work is to try them out! Ordered a 3-GW set but am replacing the GW with a LW.

I have very high expectations after all the positive feedback I've been reading and am super excited!

James: I, too, did a lot of research before I purchased my 1-Irons a few months ago. I ran across a TWGT Forum note sent to me by a local golfer. It was written by Tom Wishon who is a club component supplier "Guru" in Durango, Co. In the forum, someone asked him about "single-length" clubs. The last paragraph is interesting. He states that the main reason anyone talks about the single-length concept is because this would allow each club to swing with exactly the same feel and effort. In that sense, then doing matching of the clubs in a single-length set gives you precisely that. All clubs require the same exact amount of effort to swing, yet you don't have the length increment differences to worry about and you don't have to worry about the distance differences between clubs because they all swing the same! For the record, I have never owned such a great set of clubs; they are easy to hit, consistantly straight and after learning how to play them, it is just a matter of choosing the right club for the distance you need to cover! Hit em straight! R2

As like you I also searched the internet for any negative publicity from people after playing the clubs, and after visiting many sites I just couldn't find any. I did find a small handful of people who said they tried them and returned them within the 30 day period but even they didn't have anything really bad to say. There's a few negative comments from people who've never seen or tried them, but this is to be expected.

My clubs arrive tomorrow and I intend keeping up posts every few days of my progress. As I submitted a few days ago, my game is on the up with conventional clubs so it will be interesting to see if my long clubs, 3 wood to 6 iron, improve. Today I shot 1 better than handicap - with 8 poorly struck long irons.

I am also looking forward to the improvement in my game.

I have been playing golf for a couple of years but just recently became serious about improving. I took my first lesson about two months ago and have drastically improved.

My average score has dropped by 12+ strokes per round since the lesson and I am yet to hit a major slice (which was my big problem). I am hoping for something similar with these clubs.

If you look hard enough on the Graves Golf Academy website (at least the old one, I haven't looked at the new one) you'll find a couple of naysayers. (I'm sure there are probably others on other sites, I just haven't looked very hard). However, these people are very, VERY few and far between. The overwhelming majority of people give great reviews, and I would say that in this case, it's not because the clubs are too good to be true, it's just a fabulous product and a generally well-run company. I've owned my clubs for a year or two now, and while I still don't play as well as I would like, I'd say these are definitely the best clubs I've tried and are most likely to provide the fastest improvement in one's game.

I have all the 1iron clubs and have had most of them for about 3 months. They are no magic bullet. You have to make swing changes to use these clubs and it takes time to adapt. The company gives you playability tips to help with this process.
I will say that no golf club company that I know of has the customer service of these guys.

Like everybody else I've searched the internet from top to bottom: golf forums, golf club review sites, and everything in-between and could not find a single negative comment about 1 Iron Golf clubs or the company anywhere. All of the hundreds of threads and posts I've read are 100% positive. For a company that's been doing business world-wide for 13+ years this is beyond amazing. I'm sure that Ping, Callaway, and all the other big name brands would give anything to have a track record even close to this.

I've had my 1 Irons for about four years now and I'm not surprised about the lack of negative comments at all. Once you give them a try you'll know what I mean.

Same here. The only ones who try to discredit single-length play are those who have never tried it (the couch expert). Every single post I found from a golfer who actually tried it was high praise.

I've been playing 1 Irons for the past three years and recommend them to everyone.

I saw a negative comment by a club builder who stated that he did not see any distance differental between the clubs (3 to 4, 4 to 5, etc. This statement was so ludicrous that I am sure he was mis-quoted.
To settle your misgivings, just try the clubs. Their money back guaranty is for real and the folks at 1-iron are the most accommodating people you'll ever meet.

The clubs are great and actually much better than advertised and the customer service is outstanding.

Because the clubs flat out perform. Each iron has a solid 10-12 yard gap between them, including the longer irons. No one is going to trash golf clubs that do nothing but help your game. I have been playing them for years now, and my game has steadily gotten better. I am on my 3rd set because my father and son hijacked my first 2 sets. The clubs really do make the game a little easier. Heck they even look good. I can't see what anyone would dislike about them. No product performs miracles, and these clubs won't turn you into Arnie overnight. But being able to practice 1 swing simplfies the act of hitting the ball. These are truly game improvement irons.
