Dunlop Golf Set Reviews

By Jim Hagerty

Specs

Dunlop golf sets, made by Dunlop Sport, are designed with the beginning golfer in mind. The new Loco S Series contains an oversize driver (Ti-matrix construction), two low-profile fairway woods (3, 5), a hybrid wood, which replaces the 3-iron (a club many beginners have real trouble hitting) and a set of seven irons (a 4-iron through a pitching wedge). The set also includes a putter. All the clubs in the set are available with steel or graphite shafts.

Perks

Dunlop golf sets are great for players who only get out a few times a year. They are built with ruggedness in mind and are fairly forgiving clubs to hit. The iron heads are stainless steel, cavity-backed and large, reducing the number of mishits common in more advanced clubs that allow experienced players to shape shots and work the ball. The driver and woods are also oversize to fight against errant shots.

Sacrifices

Although the woods are fairly oversized and attractive, the titanium matrix construction leaves a bit to be desired. If you have an aggressive swing, the uniflex shafts can make it tough to keep your shots straight, resulting in the loss of distance. Smooth, controlled swings, however, usually result in a straight ball flight.

Bottom Line

Although the Dunlop Loco S Series lacks a little in overall quality, the irons are solid and the putter gets the job done. The clubs are forgiving and make the game more enjoyable for inexperienced or occasional players. At under $300, Dunlop delivers a complete and nearly perfect starter set.
