We check-in for another #RetroReview with a forgotten golf club from 2008. But, the end of the video holds a nasty surprise which I didn’t see coming!

I haven’t seen a set of Snake Eyes irons in many years, so it was good to catch up with the 2008 Snake Eyes Forged 675B irons for the next episode in season 2 of Retro Reviews. Alex Etches takes us through some 2008 pop culture and other historic moments from the year whilst testing these irons out.

Hey Guys, I’m Alex Etches and I’m a golf professional and product reviewer. If you don’t know me, I started playing golf from 10 years old, turned professional at 22 in the UK and have been creating entertaining and informative golf content on different platforms for the last 10 years. My home is now AUSTRALIA and I hope to take you around some of the best golf courses from down under.

On this channel, you can expect many fun reviews and videos. From testing out some crazy golf clubs to the latest product releases which include TaylorMade, Callaway, Cobra, Mizuno, Titleist and many more…

I also do lots of traveling and will bring you along the journey with me. With Golf Vlogs from the UK, the US and many other locations it never gets boring on tour with #TEAMAL!

Anyway, enough about me – If you’re new to the channel, or have been with #TEAMAL for a while, write a message down in the comment section and say Hi!



  1. Dave duCille says:

    pretty sure those were 2008. the predecessor was the 600b, that may have been 01

  2. Try an old Snake Eyes Fire Forged 320cc Driver. The ones ones that have the swing speed range engraved on the bottom. Choose the > 105 version for fast swing speed. These drivers feel like butter. Incredibly solid feel and sound, not a “hollow can” feel like many other drivers, including new ones. I believe Tom Wishon was the genius behind these too.

  3. Paul McGriff says:

    You need to get your hands on a set Browning blades and made by the Browning Firearms company.

  4. Paul McGriff says:

    Before the Snake Eyes Brand became a Golf Smith brand, it was owned and manufactured by Smith and Wesson Fire Arms for custom club building.

  5. Robert Reed says:

    You got the high fade and low stinger in the same shot. Impressive!

  6. Luke says:

    Watching you break things is one of my favorite things. Makes me feel better about breaking my brand new driver after 4 balls

  7. Oh, one thing about Snake Eyes. There were sold as "component heads" so anyone with some epoxy could glue up a set of clubs. Seems like maybe you got one put together by someone new to the business? Freeze frame it at 8:37 and you can see the head with no club attached. OMGosh.

    The Snake Eyes model 600B/C/XC Irons, material/Mfg: Billet Forged S45C Carbon Steel with Nickel/Chrome Plating, were introduced in 2004. The designer was Jeff Sheets, a prolific golf club designer. Anything Jeff Sheets did was amazing. Look into the Golfsmith P2 irons – that could be bent 13 degrees without breaking! Yep, that's Mr. Sheets. A lot of kids (please don't be one) seem to think golf was invented just for them, and quality irons didn't exist before their puberty. You seem genuinely surprised at the quality of these forgings. Don't be. A lot of stuff manufactured (these were forged in Japan by the way) are miles ahead of the junk they sell today with lofts so strong bent you need 3 wedges to hit the green.

    I watch your stuff and I like it. I will give your props for doing a 'retro review' when most can't be botherd. Maybe just a little bit of research before you do a review might be good though. (You do hit these well!)

    Good video – keep it up, and Thanks!

  8. John Herman says:

    Al, you were a little dis-shoveled with your shirt hanging out. I liked the look. Sorry about the screen but in all honesty you hit the crap out of the ball. All I can say is don’t head to Vegas. God man you make me laugh my rrrss off. Your the best brother, luv ya.

  9. Cody Mulcahy says:

    Funniest episode ever!!!!!!!!!!🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  10. TyrantRex says:

    Hilarious to me that these "retro" reviews all feature clubs that are decades newer than the set of irons I use.

  11. walnutz03 says:

    I laughed way to hard during this video

  12. saintcruzin says:

    The first Bubble Shaft Taylormade driver would be a fun one. Enjoy this dumb shit…

  13. bbotelhoHI says:

    I want to say my dad had a set of snake eyes irons in the mid 2000s…can’t really remember

  14. Craig Ogburn says:

    I have a set of these. Don't play them but will never get rid of them coz they are such good looking clubs. Not surprised the 3 iron ripped your screen, you could have a shave with that club

  15. roguemodel says:

    They still make these!

  16. It'll be tough to get a head in a game with those clubs.

  17. ccmorgan53 says:

    Wondering if you are interested I’d a Norman king cobra oversize driving iron for retro rifle 5.0 shaft . Finally retiring it from my bag not used in 12 years lol. I believe I brought late 90s ?

  18. Bill Dunlop says:

    At 10:20 Alex is seen sneaking into the Pro shop and super gluing the head of the snake back onto it's body before the owner arrives. 🙂

  19. Mr Mackey says:

    Here is a tip Alex:

    The Wilson Killer Whale driver ( used in the past by John Daly ). Please give it a hit!!!

  20. Grant M says:

    “It’s been snake eyed” lmfaooo

  21. I still have most of a set of Snake Eyes 600b Blade heads sitting over there… behind me… I used them for a little while, my son wants them, but they dont conform… interesting and they feel "buttery" too.

  22. Had that happen once to my ERC II 3+ wood……. ball went exactly where I wanted it to, the head went under a bush……….. 24hr araldite, it's all you need to fix it (It's all we used on the test clubs at SAT), if anything fails in the future it's always just the adhesive, and easy to put back together.

  23. And no they dont at night they have inferred eye sight

  24. Hey my friend has those irons and he hits them good

  25. Too much power 😆😆

  26. Steve Foster says:

    Just tell him it was like it when you found it.

  27. E J says:

    So yesterday I was playing with a guy who told me he had just bought some used clubs off ebay. He showed me his "new" snake eyes irons. A few shots later he hit his pitching wedge and the head snapped off and went hurtling down the fairway. Exact same break and place. Wow funny I had watched this video the night before. Must be an issue with their clubs.
