  1. Hi Tom: I hope retirement is treating you well. I just switched back to Wishon after a detour I should have never taken to try Cobra. My game completely fell apart and I instantly regained strike and flight control once switching back to Wishon. (I’ll not make that mistake again). The 565’s (5-PW standard lie/loft and length w Recoil 807 regular shafts) are my favorite. Thank you for putting together such great products. Your legacy is being well maintained at Diamond!!! Just out of curiosity, which hybrids might you recommend? My biggest concern are the paint chips and durability on the 775’s. Thanks in advance for your input.

      Thanks very much for the kind greetings. As long as the prefix “semi-” is ahead of the word retirement, I am fine! Staying as busy as I want with the new design and product development projects. If and when the semi- disappears, then I might be in trouble !! HA!

      Nice to hear that the 565’s were able to ‘rescue’ you from temptation that you were subjected to !! I was clearing out a few things last week and stumbled across an unused set of the 565 heads in my workshop and it did prompt me to stop and take another look at them because I hadn’t sat down with them for a good long while. They are a nice set of heads because I was always partial to the 560s, having played them for a long time, and it gave me moments to think about whether I should jump into that set!

      Yes, because of the alloy properties of the high strength steel used in the faces of the 775 and 929 heads, the heads have to be fully chrome plated to protect the faces from possible rust from outside. Then trying to put a paint finish on top of chrome plating is not the easiest thing to do because nothing wants to stick to chrome plating very well. We have to do quite a few light abrasion steps on the chrome to help the paint finish adhere. As such there certainly is more of a chance of chipping of the paint on these models if the headcovers are left off for any period of time to allow the heads to hit other heads in the bag when driving the cart or walking and having the heads move around in the bag.

      The 318RS hybrid is a normal 431 stainless hybrid model so the paint adhesion is as good as can be in the game. These have a small rail sole design and still have the twin weight bores in the head as well but they are not a high COR face hybrid design like the 775s. Since they came into the line last year the 318s have garnered a good bit of positive comment.

      Thanks again so much for your kind words. Yes for sure, with 38 yrs in the custom clubmaking side of the business, Diamond does know what they are doing and I am pleased to have them handling my product line.

    • Semi incredible or semi engaged you are most certainly not. You possess both in spades. Grateful for your feedback. Thanks for being so awesome!!!

  2. Dear sir im a ex tour player and have recently started getting serious again , i have noticed that i play very well with light heads and stiff shafts , im now taking over the teaching shoo and range at a famous golf course in Spain and would like too know if you have a club fitter who could do a demo day and also fit me up with the correct set
    regards Dave

      There is only one sure way to get what you want in terms of a light head feel with stiff shafts. You’d need to have at least one or two of the clubs that have the correct head weight to shaft flex feel to be disassembled to note exactly what the length, the head weight, and the shaft’s stiffness measurements are. From that it would be easy to determine if the head weight specs of the 565MC irons could be used to get you what you want and a reference could be made to current shafts to find one that would be suitable for stiffness profile for your feel requirements. Without such a detailed approach it would be a guess that would require a bit of trial and experimentation before you could know what heads and what shafts are going to get you what you want. Our representation in Spain is limited because there are just not that many qualified and experienced custom clubmakers there. I would suggest that you take the time to phone Diamond Golf International in the UK (44-1903-726-999) and ask to speak with someone with knowledge of the available custom clubmakers in Spain to obtain this information. Diamond Golf have been working with custom clubmakers in Europe for 40 years so they would know better than anyone as to who might be available in Spain. Thanks very much for your interest,

  3. Hi Tom
    I live in Sweden.

    Do you know any really good club fitters in Sweden that you will recommend? And can I get the 565 in Sweden?

    Best regards

      Thank you very much for your interest. Please go to wishongolf.com one more time and click on the link for FIND A CLUBFITTER. You’ll find this link at the top of the home page. Input Stockholm for the City and Sweden for the State and all the clubfitters within 400 miles of Stockholm will be displayed with their contact information. Of these I personally know and recommend Tee View, Brejans and David Leet Golf. Hopefully one of these will be within close proximity to where you live in Sweden.

      Thank you again and the very best to you in this great game,
      TOM

  4. Dear Tom
    Thanks for your prompt reply – really impressive!
    I would agree that focus and practice required more than anything- may swap my four iron for hybrid but need Richard to check loft and lie first. I have often said he is a victim of his own expertise as the initial fitting was so good! Best wishes

  5. Dear Tom
    Greetings from the UK!
    Still love my 550c/m set (split at 7, rifles at ~5.3) made for me by Richard Kempton. After 10yrs wondering if I should consider a change. What difference might I notice with the 565s? Also, as I reach 50, would you advise that it may be worth me looking at some of the larger cavity backs eg 755PC or 771CSI. Playing off 13, coming back from shoulder surgery. Hit a high ball and distance not an issue? Finally, what are your views on dropping the 4 iron for a hybrid – already did this with my 3 iron and love the hybrid?
    Will of course be listening to Richard but interested in your views.
    Best wishes
    Pete
