I heard it was just the opposite. I'm not a big golf fan myself, but I remember reading an article about some golf pros using older clubs that left incredible back spin (I think thats the terminology??) on the ball, mostly from the texture of the golf clubs surface. Newer golf clubs using the same texture were made illegal by the PGA, but pros were still allowed to use the old ones if they were produced before the rules went into effect.
An interesting case where older tech trumps the newer tech!
