Are you familiar with Eagle Rebirth Golf? If not, you might want to familiarize yourself with this independent golf manufacturer. This golf manufacturer, however, might be a little different than your typical manufacturer and it might be for that reason why the golfing public hasn’t seen too many reviews on it. The reason, this company is a golf component company.
Eagle Rebirth Golf is a golf manufacturer that finds its home in Riverside, California and a company that makes premium equipment from premium materials. The alloys that they use in the manufacturing process is second to nobody and where other companies use forging houses in Japan or China, Eagle Rebirth Golf sees its foundry set in Taiwan.
Prior to the 2019 PGA Show, I had no idea that Eagle Rebirth Golf existed. That was until I was scrolling through the exhibitors listed and noticed a picture or two of some clubheads. “Eagle Rebirth Golf” I thought to myself. “These might be worth a look”. So I added them to “My Favorites” and e-mailed them to make contact. I would establish contact with Ernie Reynolds through various e-mails and Mr. Reynolds invited me to have a closer look at his clubs and make some swings.
While Eagle Rebirth Golf and Ernie Reynolds (himself) might be new names to us understand that he is not new to the game. Mr. Reynolds spent 10 years with Cleveland Golf in the R&D Department, played golf professionally, was a Master Clubfitter with Golfsmith, and last but not least was a member of the Long Drive Team at Harrison Golf. So in a nutshell, he knows golf and he knows golf clubs and equipment.
Eagle Rebirth Golf is a company that offers a full arsenal of equipment. Their range includes drivers, metal woods, hybrids, irons, and wedges.
When I made my way over to the International Clubmakers Guild section of the range and first had a look at what Eagle Rebirth Golf offered golfers I was quite surprised. While I expected to ee irons and wedges the array was staggering. I was very surprised to see the offerings available. That’s not even including the drivers, metal woods, and hybrids. But there they were and they looked impressive. I started out hitting a few wedges and then made my way to the irons. My eyes made direct contact with one of the models in particular. The ERG X3 irons.
The ERG X3 irons are forged from 1025 Carbon Steel which as discerning and educated golfers know is a type of steel commonly used in the creation of forged irons. Typically, irons forged from that particular model offers superb feel. When it came to the overall looks of these irons they scored very well for me. I think the X3 irons are a pretty handsome iron and I liked the muscle-cavity design and the “diamond” CNC-Milling on the rear of the head. Overall, the heads of the X3 irons are very clean and I really like the top-line as it isn’t too thick or too thin. Looking down in the address position the ball sets up very well. There isn’t much in the way of offset and that is a winning attribute.
The only place where it lost points when compared to some of the others in the category was innovation. There isn’t anything ground-breaking but does that really matter if they perform?
I really liked the feel of the X3 irons from ERG. They felt really solid and strikes off of the center of the face were very well-rewarded. On less than optimal strikes, the ERG X3 irons “talk” to you. The muscle-cavity type of design really places mass around the sweet spot on the reverse side of the head. I could really feel the ball get hammered off of the face and the ensuing ballflight was fairly aggressive. Of course, this is dependent on the type of shaft that was used in the X3 irons. Because these irons are components fitting through one of nearly 50 dealers is extra important. But in my experience swinging them the flight was predictable, penetrating, and easy to flight on the windy day that was Demo Day. The workability of shots right to left and vice versa was a breeze.
All in all, if you’re in the market for a set of custom golf clubs you might want to look for a dealer near you and give the ERG X3 irons a look. They’re clean and they perform. While at a local golf show in February I was surprised to see some attendance. As it turns out a dealer for ERG (Power Golf) is pretty close to me. About 10 minutes away in fact. When the owner Brian Morrissey and I got talking about ERG it was his opinion that they were better than Miura and New Level both companies that he carries in his shop. Perhaps, that’s an endorsement. Head over to Eagle Rebirth Golf and check them out.
As a company, ERG won the “Hidden Gem Teezy Award”.
Until The Next Tee!!
