Description & Specs Videos Tips & Features Warranty Reviews

Eliminates nearly all risk of club breakage (U.S. Patent #5,738,208), (1.2 lbs) fully adjustable, 3-piece telescoping club protector fits all travel bags and adjusts to slightly longer than the longest club in the bag to protect clubs.

  • Durable nylon plastic head is non-chafing to travel bag fabric
  • Body constructed of lightweight aluminum
  • Precision-lock spring loaded adjustment pins
  • Soft cushion rubber bottom foot cap
  • Disassembles for ease of storage
  • Designed to absorb the full force of impact in severe travel conditions so that your clubs don't have to


This product is designed to minimize vertical impact damage to your valuable clubs while inside a Club Glove® travel bag. It is by no means indestructible. Each impact the Stiff Arm® absorbs will weaken its protective qualities. To maximize your club protection we recommend that you inspect your Stiff Arm® after each use and replace it as needed (The Stiff Arm® is a far less expensive replacement than a new driver). If your Stiff Arm® is damaged and your clubs are not, it has done its job.

This product is “disposable”, and is offered for sale “AS IS”. This means that the entire risk as to the quality and performance of the goods is with the buyer. Should the goods prove defective following their purchase, the buyer and not the manufacture, distributor, or retailer assumes the entire cost of all necessary servicing or repair.

Stiff Arm gets Heisman  
Garth Fitzgerald, June, 2023

I've had my Stiff Arm forever and I've never seen this thing in action until yesterday when i unpacked my golf clubs and saw that the top of the stiff arm was bent ~10 degrees but my Driver was in good shape. My new Stiff Arm is gonna be called the "Derrick Henry"! Thanks!

Stiff Arm  
Kyle Winger, April, 2023

Product works as promised. Very sturdy! It is adjustable and creates a snug fit. Highly recommend.

Stiff Arm  
Lee, April, 2023

Works great and is very stable and well constructed.

Christopher M Visaya, January, 2023

The Stiff Arm is a must need to protect your golf clubs when you are traveling with your clubs. It is a well built device that will give you piece of mind that your longer clubs will not break during transport. Kudos to Club Glove for having this available.

Plastic top broke   
Matthew J Yee, July, 2022

The plastic top broke off the aluminum pole, but my clubs were fine. I wish they sold replacement tops as they screw on and off

Stiff Arm saves the Driver shaft  
Paul McCormick, June, 2022

I used the Stiff Arm on a recent flight. When I took the clubs out of the soft sided travel bag, the top of the Stiff Arm fell out. Here's the pictures. You can see the Stiff Arm is bent and actually fractured, but the Driver shaft is intact. So, a hearty ‘thank you' for a wonderful product!

The Stiff Arm  
Phil Rounds, May, 2022

First I want to praise the stiff arm product for saving my golf clubs (see picture). I was returning home from Streamsong and opened my bag to find my stiff arm literally bent. Thanks to it, I have no idea how, but my clubs made it unscathed. Shared the picture with the group of 48 we had at Streamsong and no one had ever seen this before. Amazing how airlines are handling bags these days.

Buy it  
Christine, August, 2021

This is a MUST HAVE to protect your clubs. I’m a former D1 athlete who still brings her clubs on every vacation and I get so nervous that a club is going to get broken (my driver) in transit but this helps guarantee my clubs will arrive safely. Club glove makes the most durable bags and bag accessories. If you’re on the fence - BUY THIS - you won’t regret it.

Reliable stiff arm  
Chase, August, 2021

I've used the product on two trips so far -- It has successfully protected my clubs both times. I would be hesitant to travel without this because it absorbs the shock of my bag being thrown "head first" at the airport.

Club Gve Quality   
Bryan Yee, August, 2021

With the cost of clubs these days, it makes perfect financial sense to protect your investment while traveling. As a recent retiree, I plan to travel with my clubs more often. The Stiff Arm protects my clubs and my piece of mind. Great Product…Great Club Glove Quality!

Travel necessity  
Chase Coleman, August, 2021

I travel with my clubs about once every other month and feel much better about doing so with the protection I get from the stiff arm.

Excellent product  
John Utz, December, 2020

I bought new clubs from club champion (expensive but nice) and wanted to make sure that they didn’t get ruined for a trip from Miramar Beach, Florida to San Diego. I have a sun mountain travel bag and it worked perfectly. I could tell they must have sling the bag but the stiff arm protected my new clubs. Awesome product. I will use it every time I travel and recommend it for anyone who is traveling.

Stiff Arm  
Bob Suddreth, November, 2020

I have owned a club glove bag since 2014 and stiff arms not available then. My driver was broken by the airlines in September on a trip and I purchased a stiff arm for a trip to Dallas. It works so well and highly recommend. I feel it will protect clubs more than anything.

This thing is great  
Michael Hoff, August, 2020

A friend suggested that I just buy a 2x2 and at Home Depot and cut it slightly longer than the driver to fit my bag, but I figured that $3500 worth of clubs (mine and my wife's) was worth a specialized device. The Stiff Arm is very sturdy out of the box. It nicely fit in our golf bags and hovered over the drivers. We took 5 flights over a couple of weeks and it very nicely protected our clubs. We were actually able to see them toss the bags from the plane onto a cart on one of the flights and we cringed; the clubs were fine!

Works great  
OGgolf, June, 2020

Should have bought this years ago. Works fantastic. Protects clubs and makes it easier to load clubs in bag

Great customer service  
vince, March, 2020

I have 2 of these and both had the top break during baggage handling. The clubs stayed protected though. Customer service saw my review and sent replacement tops to me for both the broken ones. That is great service. Wish the tops were made of some sort of metal to avoid breakage from baggage handlers.

Stiff Arm Review  
Karl H, December, 2019

I play golf when I travel and the stiff arm gives me peace of mind that my clubs will arrive without any adjustments from the airlines!!

Works like a charm  
David Buckley, April, 2019

I used the Stiff Arm for the first time on my annual golf trip, and it worked exactly as advertised. The Stiff Arm is a solid piece of golf-club protection, and it fit snugly in my Club Glove travelling golf bag.

LT, February, 2019

If you have as much money invested in your clubs like I do, then you are foolish not get this device. We all know how the airlines handle our luggage and to take the risk of damage to my new fitted clubs it was a no brainier not get this device. Have used it now for over a year and no issues so far.

Driver saver  
Pete, January, 2019

Best protection for my $400 driver

Best golf travel experience ever  
David , December, 2018

Easy to maneuver through busy airports. Heavy duty construction of the bag and the stiff arm kept my clubs safe.

Stiff Arm  
C, December, 2018

You must have this stiff arm to protect your Driver, fairway woods, and hybrids. I was fed up with cheap travel bags, clunky hard cases, and broken clubs. This is the most effective way to travel if you are a serious golfer. Hands down.

Cheap insurance  
Greg, October, 2018

After many trips with my clubs with no problems, the stiff arm came through and saved my driver when needed. The pole was bent beyond repair, but no damage to my clubs. Wouldn't travel without it, but it would be nice if you could replace the individual components instead of buying a whole new one.

A Must for Your Travel Bag  
Rick, October, 2018

My clubs don’t travel without a Stiff Arm in the bag to protect them. Thanks, Club Glove!

Stiff arm and other products  
CB, October, 2018

Everything they make is quality. The stiff arm is no exception. Great product. I own a lot of club glove bags - golf club bag, duffle bags, roll on, large duffel bag. My family of 5 can pack for a week and get all our stuff in the gear. PLUS... when bags come off the carousel at baggage claim, we can get our bags because they don’t look like everyone else’s bags due to the color combination I picked. They are just great bags.

Timothy, October, 2018

I own several club gloves and recently purchased a few extra stiff arms. The service I received was as good as I’ve ever seen. Of course the product is outstanding, as well. Thank you for being so accommodating and helpful.

Asian travel  
Tom, October, 2018

I live mostly in China and frequently travel with my clubs throughout Asia. I wouldn’t think of packing without the protection provided by this device. Never a problem yet!

Jimmy, October, 2018

Saved my driver! I’m a competitive amateur and have invested a good amount in my clubs. I recently got back from a golf trip and my stiff arm was bent severely but it saved my woods from being snapped! Best investment in my golf bag!

It works.  
Gregg, July, 2018

Had one each in our Club Glove bags on recent trip to Scotland - witnessed some rough handling first hand, lol, and the Stiff Arm did its job!

Awesome Silent Auction Item  
Lori Roy, June, 2018

We provided a Travel Bag and Stiff Arm as a silent auction item to an industrial association that was raising money for Operation Homefront. This item was Popular!! Great item, Great cause.

Stiff Arm  
Steve G, April, 2018

Loved this product! It's much stronger than the previous brand I owned.

Nick, October, 2017

Awesome Product!

club glove review  
john p, October, 2017

I bought my first club glove and stiff arm for a trip to the UK. This equipment is well designed and well constructed. It is compact and very easy to handle. It is my opinion that these are outstanding products. I could not give them a higher recommendation.

Anonymous, July, 2017

I have used your travel bags for as long as I remember. But I wanted to share a story about another successful save by the Club Glove Stiff Arm. This is the second time my Stiff Arm has protected my clubs from being broken during airline travel. I flew to Scottsdale on Thursday. When I arrived and unpacked my clubs, I found the Stiff Arm bent at about a 30 degree angle. It was bent so bad I could hardly get it out of the bag. My clubs were fine, and the trip went off without a hitch. Upon arriving home I ordered 4 more from The Golf Warehouse for myself and my three golf buddies on the trip. Thanks, It could have made for a pretty miserable trip.

Anonymous, July, 2017

Thank you for the quick service delivering my Club Glove travel items. On arrival in Scotland I opened my club travel bag only to discover the Stiff Arm was broken, my clubs were safely intact. I extend a thousand thanks and appreciation to the design and manufacturing teams. Thanks to the Stiff Arm my first ever Scotland outing was played without a hitch.

Anonymous, July, 2017

Club Glove Stiff Arm saved my clubs. In preparation for a trip to Phoenix I purchased the Club Glove Stiff Arm for my travel bag. I flew from Pittsburgh to Phoenix on September 16, 2011. The attached photos are of the bent Stiff Arm that took the brunt of the airline abuse. Thanks Club Glove!

Anonymous, July, 2017

I have just learned a tough lesson that homemade can result in hard knocks, like the kind that decapitated my gorgeous ping driver, literally snapping it in two, a foot from the club head. I wasted no time in availing myself of the Stiff-Arm, a no-nonsense product produced by the good folks at Club Glove.

Anonymous, July, 2017

I was traveling a couple of weeks ago with my golf clubs. I had my Stiff Arm in the bag and wehn we arrived and I went to take my clubs out of the travel bag and the top portion of the Stiff Arm was bent at almost a 45 degree angle. Non of my clubs were damaged and neither was the bag. Great product, saved my new driver!

Anonymous, July, 2017

Just returned from a trip to Las Vegas, when I opened my travel bag this is what I found. Thankfully there was no damage to my clubs. I will never take my clubs without the Stiff Arm!

sarah, March, 2017

We arrived home to find the top of the stiff arm that broken from the shaft and we used the bag and stiff arm about 7 times for air travel

Anonymous, August, 2016

Baggage handlers at LAX are no match for the Stiff Arm! Despite violent treatment that broke the cap off the top of the protective pole, the clubs survived undamaged. I, however, got Stiff Armed during the ensuing ?

Anonymous, August, 2016

We just took a trip to AZ to play some golf and on our return, Delta Airlines lost both of our sets of golf clubs. They arrived today (next day) and wow! My wife's Stiff Arm in her bag is bent in two places! Clearly the airlines baggage handlers do not have the same love of golf as we do. But thanks to the Stiff Arm in her Club Glove Burst Proof with Wheels II, my wife's clubs are ready for more action. We will be singing the praises of these products to all my golfing friends from today on.
