How to distinguish whether golf clubs are forged or cast? -Alice

November 22, 2021

New golfers who are new to the club are usually confused by the name of some materials and the way the club is made, and they don't know what to do. I just know that usually forged clubs are bright and bright, with better texture, and higher prices. On the contrary, cast-ing clubs look dull and black, and the price seems to be cheaper. .

If judging by the appearance, the above statement is not necessarily correct; however, the cost of forging is indeed relatively high, and it is understandable that it is expensive to sell. In fact, this difference in appearance is purely due to electroplating or not, and has nothing to do with the method of manufacture. Some cast cues are also brightly plated, but some forged cues, such as rusty wedges, look like broken copper and broken iron.

In addition, there is an inseparable appearance problem that is inseparable from forging and casting, which is the forged blade back and the cast concave back. The blade back refers to the club head that looks like a smooth blade, and the concave back refers to the concave shape on the back of the club face. This kind of natural combination is because the earliest iron rods were forged by hand. The iron craftsman hit a piece of hot iron with a hammer to make it into a basic pattern. Therefore, the back of the head is mostly a streamlined plane. , And has the title of muscle back. The fight is relatively solid, but not friendly, and it's miserable if you don't hit the sweet spot.

Forging and casting are mainly due to the difference in the feel of the ball. Because of the material requirements for the production of forged clubs, mild carbon steel will be selected as the material. The more carbon content, the softer it feels, and of course the cost will be higher. Since the mold is already available for casting, the material only needs to be made of stainless steel alloy, without the need for soft carbon steel. Ever since, buying forged or cast clubs is purely about the feeling of touching the ball. If you still can’t tell it, it’s more meaningful to choose a concave back than a knife back than to consider forging or casting.
