Sunfish review on Golfwrx

Review taken from:

As the wool head cover look continues to grow in popularity both on Tour and at local clubs, many golfers are now looking into purchasing some for themselves.  For the past few years, the wool head cover market has been cornered primarily by Jan Craig, seen in Watson and Nicklaus’ bags in years past, and Rocket Tour, used by many of today’s tour players including Dustin Johnson.

While many desire this look, originally popular in the 60s and 70s and just recently brought back into style, not many actually end up purchasing them, due to the high cost of custom head covers from brands like Jan Craig.  In 2013, Nashville’s own Sunfish Wool desires to change this, making the handmade wool head cover both affordable and customizable.

Sunfish offers the set of three custom head covers (Driver, Wood, Utility) for $79, a decent price considering Jan Craig charges upwards of $150 for their set of three.  Sunfish’s website gives us a little more info on the quality:

“We offer a wide variety of colors to choose from. Your headcovers can match your bag, favorite team or school.  We ship same day if the order is received by 2 pm central time.

•    Driver cost is $29.99 – fits all clubs including the 460cc drivers.
•    Set cost is $79.99
•    The set includes the following

•    Fairway wood cover

•    Hybrid/utility cover

•    Details

•    100% handmade

•    Elastic knitted into the fabric at the bottom and under the head for a firm fit

•    Made from 100% New Zealand wool

•    The Driver is 22″ long with a 6″ pom

•    The Fairway is 17″ long with a 4″ pom

•    The Hybrid is 14″ long with a 3″ pom”
We recently received a set from Sunfish to try out.  As you can see in the below pictures, the construction is pretty thick and durable.  A cool feature that some other brands don’t feature is the elastic around the opening of the head cover, ensuring a snug fit on clubs.  The Driver cover fits 460cc drivers easily, and the other covers fit my three wood and hybrids without trouble.

Overall, these headcovers are a good value, not only because of the price, but because of the handmade, 100% wool construction.  The only complaint I have is that they don’t offer a putter cover, or that there is only one design, however this can be expected from a new company.  I’m sure they will eventually offer more options as time goes on.
