Ram G-Force Golf Set Review

As a golfer who plays at most 5 rounds a month during the summer, I was looking for a new set of clubs that was relatively affordable, but was still well made. In the end I settled on a set of Ram G-Force clubs, which can be had for less than $200 (if you can still find them).

What’s Included:

-430cc Graphite Shafted Driver (With Headcover)
-3 and 5 Graphite Shafted Fairway Woods (With Headcovers)
-Hybrid Steel Shafted 3-Iron (With Headcover)
-4-PW Steel Shafted Cavity-back Irons
-Heel-toe Weighted Putter
-“Deluxe” Stand Bag

The set was quite a step-up from my last, which consisted of mismatched clubs and was well over 20 years old.

Immediately upon using the clubs I fell in love with the irons. My old irons were not cavity-backs and these new irons felt lighter and seemed to give me more distance and control than the old ones. In fact, the first time I took these out I was a couple strokes below my average without even hitting the range, and I believe the irons had the most to do with that. Since I’ve purchased this set, I’ve hit some Callaway X-16s and I preferred the feel of the Ram irons over the Callaway’s.

The driver is massive, especially compared to my old real wood driver. The graphite shaft gives it plenty of whip and the driver itself has a good sound to it. I now can drive 225 yards consistently (that is if I can avoid my slice!). The fairway woods are very similar to the driver and are very easy to hit.

Considering the price of the set the putter is of very high quality, and the bag has plenty of room to hold everything you need. The bag also comes with a rain cover that snaps on.

My favorite part of the set is the hybrid 3-iron. Usually I don’t dare to play anything longer than a 5-iron because it is nearly impossible to hit 4 or 3 irons. However, the hybrid is very forgiving and is very easy to hit. It’s a great second shot club on par 5s or coming out of short rough.

Overall, I am very pleased with the Ram G-Force set. For a very low price it offers top notch quality and performs very well for the average golfer like me. If you’re in the market for an affordable set of clubs I would definitely recommend these.

Thank you so much for this post. I just happened across a set (minus a couple of irons) of these for 90 bucks and snatched them up. I am a beginner golfer and also not very smart when it comes to golf clubs (is that obvious :)). Anyway, I feel much better after having read your comments.

another thanks for the post. Two days ago, I was convinced to start playing golf. I came across this set (minus the fairways and bag) for $30 at a thrift store. Since I have almost no knowledge of clubs, I figured I couldn't do much better than 10 clubs from a set for the price of a round. I played my first 18 at Tecolote Canyon, Sam Snead's course. I managed a 112 with 6 lost balls. I don't know how these clubs would compare to others, but they made my entry into the sport a lot of fun.
