Testimonies Comparing the Divnick Whole-In-One Adjustable to the Universal Club

We have a lot of customers who began with a Universal because it is less cost. But after tying to use it for a while, they purchase a Divnick and put their Universal up for sale on ebay. This page contains testimonies from golfers who have used both clubs. The first photo links to the bottom of the page where you can read a report from a man who has used several different adjustable clubs.

I have only used the Universal club about 2 or 3 times in the 4 or 5 years that I have had it. I found that lining up 3 arrows and numbers to be time consuming and confusing. I never felt comfortable that I dialed in the correct loft. This ended up throwing my timing off because I started rushing.

In terms of performance, the Universal did not give me consistent results, especially with the lower lofts, and was therefore not useful for the longer shots.

The Divnick club is very easy to adjust. In fact the club probably shortens the round of golf by at least 20 minutes, if not more.

I now use it all the time.

Dear Mr. Divnick;

I am writing to give you feedback on the use of my newly purchased Divnick as compared to the Universal Club I have used for the past 3 years. 

The main reason for choosing the Universal Club 3 years ago was its lower cost.   It certainly served me well, but in coming back to look at the Divnick recently and reading the comparisons, the engineer in me took over and I decided to order the Divnick.  I am very glad I did and will detail those reasons below. 

I was very impressed when I received the club and opened the package.  The craftsmanship is evident immediately.  The mechanism to rotate the club head is much easier to use and feels much more natural.  The shape of the club head is more pleasing and as it turns out, more functional.  The option to have my name on the club is a nice touch as well.  The bag to hold the balls and tees has also worked out very well. 

So, how does the Divnick compare to the Universal club out on the course? 

In all my years playing golf, I have not had a single round where I felt comfortable all the way through and came away pleased with my play. But my second round with the Divnick was the first time I had hit consistent straight drives off the tee for an entire round.  They sound and feel much better than anything previously. 

My middle game, which had been my weak point previously, improved as well.  The shape of the club head allows me to make better contact.  The flat bottom edge and flat face on the bottom of the Universal Club, made it difficult to pick the ball off the turf.  Too many shots either dug into the turf or I over-compensated and would top the ball.

The Divnick gives me much better results because the shape of the club allows me to develop more confidence in contacting the ball. 

My pitching game is the most improved.  I can now obtain loft on the ball that I had not accomplished with any consistency before because the sole of the Universal and the adjusting mechanism hit the ground before it contacted the ball.

I have also developed more consistency in my putting game, again due to the design of the Divnick.  The two lines engraved on the back of the club have made it much easier to line up. 

I also had a problem with the Universal shaft breaking loose and rotating during contact, and the Divnick doesn't do that. It is as solid as a rock.

As much as I enjoyed playing with the Universal Club all those years, the Divnick has clearly surpassed all expectations.  I look forward to many years of enjoyment using this club.

One footnote, over the last year of using the Universal Club, I began to take along a driving iron and a putter.  Now that I have the Divnick, I am back playing with the nickname everyone had given me previously - "One Club".

Thank you for designing and manufacturing a high quality club that any recreational (or seasoned veteran from time to time) will enjoy.

I had the Universal Club for two years and used it to play a par 3 course every weekend. The bolt which held the head of the club on snapped twice. The first time I had to put a small carriage bolt in and shave the head of the bolt down a bit. The second time, a few pieces went missing, so I bought a new universal club. Then its bolt broke.

That's when I purchased the Divnick. This has held up really well and is quicker to adjust, which means the rounds go a little faster because I'm not fiddling with the lofts.

Thanks again!

I have traveled with a Super Stick for many years, although I found it rather unforgiving. I purchased your club for its cavity back design and tested them side by side. When hit perfectly from the tee, they both seem to reach about the same distance. But in any other circumstance, especially on the fairway, the Divnick feels better, gets the ball higher and is much more accurate. I also bought your telescopic T&F Driver: It really surprised me with consistently straight shots only 25 yards shorter than my best driver. Although smaller, it is very accurate, reliable...and sounds nice too.

“The One Club Man” Review

The following review is from Herb Jaro of North Carolina. He is known as “The One Club Man” at his local courses because he has used one club for many years. His first was a Super Stick. He then purchased 2 Universals, then the Walking Sticks, and finally a Divnick. His report provides valuable insight into the pros and cons of the different clubs, and why he believes the Divnick is the best. He has even purchased a second Divnick and explains why. I want to thank Herb for such a thorough report and his permission to post it for our customers.

Dear Mr. Divnick,

I just received notification of delivery from Fedex. Thanks again for getting my second Divnick club shipped out so fast.

This is the story about how and why I have all these adjustable clubs. I am 71 years old and have been in sales my whole adult life. I had cancer in 2007 and gained 60 pounds even though most people lose weight. In order to lose, I decided to play more golf. I had been playing maybe 10 times a year, but I knew I would not lose weight riding in a cart. There was a fairly new par 3 course about 6 miles from my house and they had a senior group that played on Wednesdays. I didn't have a pull cart or small bag, and couldn't carry my regular bag, so I had to figure out something.

I purchased a Super Stick on Ebay. That was about 2007. I went to the driving range and practiced a lot. I liked that it was one club with all the normal lofts with a collapsible shaft. But the bottom edge was too far in front of the shaft, it was difficult to putt, and it required a coin to loosen and tighten it for every loft change.

I then Checked on Ebay and found a Universal and your Divnick. I chose the Universal because it looked good and had the same adjusting mechanism that my Super Stick had.

I played with the Universal for about 2 years. It had all the same lofts as the Super Stick and an improved putter setting. But the leading edge was still a problem and the flat sole edge dug into the ground causing lots of thin shots. Sand would get into gears and make it hard to adjust. I usually had to wash it out with water in order to change the loft settings.

The Universal is a 2 piece shaft, and several times while hitting a shot the bottom half would spin causing a shank off to the right. Another problem was that collapsing the club caused the shaft to cookie-cut a hole through the end of the grip. The loft mechanism got more and more difficult to adjust by the end of each round. The lever alignment is difficult to adjust (especially compared to how simple it is for the DIVNICK). After about 3 years I went back to a full bag and put the Universal in the closet.

Fast forward to 2 years ago, when I went to part-time work and started playing golf more often. I dug out the Universal, and added a hybrid for the long shots, a gap wedge and putter.

But I wasn't happy with this arrangement, so I went back to the internet and found the Walking Sticks. I soon learned that the center loft position of each club performed better than the other 2 loft positions which tend to grab grass and dirt, clogging up the adjusting mechanism and preventing the lever from moving. The three clubs required 2 Allen wrenches which was a hassle. After all o that, I still had to carry a hybrid and putter, so 5 clubs.

I finally decided to give the DIVNICK a try. The more I played, the more advantages became known. I like that it collapses to a shorter length, it comes with a belt-bag that carries balls and tees,etc. It hits farther, doesn't grab in the rough, and the 2 degree half-loft settings help for those in between shots. The collapsing cap at end of putter grip makes it much easier to collapse, and I no longer have to worry about cutting through the grip. I like that the DIVNICK only needs one lever rotation to change lofts while the UNIVERSAL needs two turns. Also, realigning the lever on the DIVNICK is much easier than the UNIVERSAL.


To top it all off, after playing golf for 58 years, I just got my first hole-in-one...with my DIVNICK! I had it on the 7 1/2 iron loft and hit a high fade over a cedar tree that landed on the green, took two bounces, and disappeared into the hole! What a great feeling after all these years!

I think the DIVNICK golf club is one of the greatest clubs ever built, and my second DIVNICK is going in my regular bag so that when it rains and the course is cart path only, I will always have the club I need. I only wish I had bought the DIVNICK first 13 years ago. Then I wouldn't have all these other adjustable clubs in my closet.

The last thing is I appreciate your fast and personal service and communication.
