Well, if you are a SD golfer like me, this is a great deal on a new set of graphite shaft irons from Callaway.

This was Golf DIgest 2012 HOT LIst club( cannot remember gold or silver rating)

I have been tracking this set on Ebay auctions since early 2013, the average price is in the low to mid $300+ shipping. So with BUY-It-Now at $300, I think it is a great deal, no waiting.

If you have a 10% off Ebay coupon from this week, for $270 shipped(YMMV), heck of a set at this price.

My last SD deal on the Srixons Z-star golf balls(my first SD deal actually) went FP, so hope you like this one.

Disclaimer: pls no TC and compare to the $199 set of clubs with putter and bag. Nothing wrong with those, just apples and oranges. Thank youBig Grin FORE

Hmmm no 3-PW steel shaft sets available for a good price? Never really understood the graphite shaft thing with irons, but call me an old-fashioned 22 year old.
when you still try/want to enjoy the game 20, 25, 30 yrs later, you would knowWinkCool

or your body/back/doctor tell you so

except of course if you are a pro playing on the champions tour then that would be different.

Is anyone able to comment on how these sets would be for a beginner?

I've played a few times but have never owned my own set. I'm 6'3" and totally unfamiliar with all the options (shaft material, loft, flex, etc.). I also know that some sets have a more forgiving "sweet spot" while others require more skill/precision.

So again, does anyone know how these fare for beginners? Or am I better off going to a shop and getting fitted?

callaway CPO site has 16 reviews; but with your height, you might want to get fitted; or at least try some clubs at the store

The steel shaft ones are lower priced than the graphite- do you just prefer the steel shafts, or is there another benefit over graphite?
if you have a high swing rate, you'll benefit from the steel shafts more because with less flex you can get better shots and more distance. these have standard flex, which is a bit more forgiving. usually, for more advanced players, they may prefer steel or graphite with stiff flex, so their true swing is better rewarded.

These are more like blades, with very little surface area on the bottom. This means that they are far less forgiving for beginners. If you're new to the game, you'll enjoy it more and learn faster with a set of hybrid irons. These are irons that look somewhat like a fairway wood. Their wider bottom helps to prevent you from lobbing divots and shanking shots caused by ground interference. Usually like this you'll trade some distance for shot forgiveness. Any golfer will tell you that a straight and predictable shot is a thousand times more important than distance.

EDIT: oh yeah and welcome to the game! you're going to love it (after you hate it for a few months)

These are not like blades in any sense. These have huge soles, very elongated from heel to toe, a massive sweet spot and all the weight in the bottom of the clubhead. If comparing to blades, these are close to the opposite. A great set for a beginner IMO. The graphite shafts in these particular clubs are a different story.

The problem is that these regular flex graphites are very weak. If you have any speed in your swing the shot patterns won't be anywhere near ideal. Both the clubhead and the shafts are made to hit the ball high and the soft tip will lead to inconsistency, not to mention they will be very light overall. These irons are pretty much made for older men who just wanna get the ball in the air. Good buy if you fit that criteria, but I would not recommend these if you're an athlete who can generate speed.

Any reason these could be fake? I saw the post on the last Callaway CPO deal that 20% of ebay clubs are fakes!

Thanks for the tips... I guess I should keep looking!

Friend of mine told me that it might be a fake. Ebay sells lot of fake golf sets.
Their Picture vs Golfsmith website is way different. Ex) don't see a white layer of octagon. + don't see correct Callaway logo (C with no vertical line)

I'm pretty confident that this set is real. The seller is RockBottomGolf. They have been around for years and are known to sell older models at a discount. They wouldn't risk selling counterfeit iron sets just to make a few dollars.

Here is their website: http://www.rockbottomgolf.com/

They also have over 420,000 feedback reviews on their ebay account.
