Original Post

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

The steel shaft ones are lower priced than the graphite- do you just prefer the steel shafts, or is there another benefit over graphite?
Where are the steel ones cheaper at? I would jump all over those.

Graphite irons are for chicks...and apparently old dudes, according to this thread. Although, I'm not really sure how a club's shaft could make your "bad back" feel any better. Thought they were just a little lighter so girls could increase their swing speed a little.

I guess I'll just get a cheap used set off CL until i can constantly hit the ball Big Grin. I'm still in the super newbie stages, only played 1 round (9 hole).
Thanks guys
I'm in the same boat. I haven't played since I was a teen and would like to get back into it. For me, I just wanted a basic set so I could at least get out there again.

If you have a Menards around you, they have left over sets from Christmas on clearance for $119. They also have a $40 store credit rebate, making it $79. This is for a complete set with bag made by Wilson. I'm pretty sure this is in store only. I posted the info HERE a few weeks ago.

Obviously, this set is not going to be the same quality as the ones in this deal thread, but it will get you what you need to get out there and see if this is something you want to put time and money into. If I hate it, I can recoup my $ on craigslist. If I love it, I can sell this set and put the $ towards a better one.

forgive my ignorance, but does this set come with the regulars:
a driver
a putter
a chipper/wedge
Quote from inloxxx View Post :
nope. just irons.

you will have to buy a driver, woods, hybrids, and a putter.
will come with wedge, but no chipper (you can use 7 iron as a chipper in most cases).
good luck out there!

If you're new to golf, you would be better off buying a 3 wood vs. a driver at this point. It will be a bit more forgiving and will get you used to hitting woods. When you feel more confident, then pick up a driver that suits your game.

Also, I would not get a chipper at this point. Learn to use the Pitching Wedge (PW) that comes with most sets and as inloxxx mentioned, you can use other clubs like the 7 iron in creative ways to act like a chipper.

I hate seeing sweet deals on golf clubs. I just started taking lessons, and I own a complete set from Callaway from Costco--X-24. I've been wanting a new set of irons, but I'm telling myself that I shouldn't get one until I could hit balls consistently.

With the 10% off, I've been itching for a set of irons even more, but with this sweet deal... Man...
Sometimes I just wish my irons just break.. Haha

Why your irons are fine. In my opinion for the average golfer, so long as you have a decent set (not the cheapest walmart set) you will see no difference in game vs a high end set. Once you get much better and very consistent, then maybe a better set will improve your game. But until then its all in ones mind.

not sure what is "deadlift"?
Dunno if he's referring to a golf term I'm unfamiliar with, but in my world a deadlift refers to a lift with free weights. It is kind of notoriously bad on backs though, so maybe he was thinking you should do it to strengthen your back? Unless you're trying to do olympic style lifting, there are much better exercises to go about doing for your back.

Maybe have already been said but do yourself a favor and buy a complete set online, target, Dicks, wherever.

Can get everything you need for less than $200 easy. You really don't want or need a "chipper" unless you meant a wedge or something. Much, much better to learn on an inexpensive complete set.

Do this - find a cheap full set to learn. Once you can consistently break 100, then start considering better clubs. Otherwise you are just wasting money.

OT: Thinking of picking up golf for fun and networking. As a newbie that never played, are there any deals out there for a complete set (have no idea what are good brands but some have recommended callaway)? I would try craigslist but have no idea what I'm looking at/for.
Don't go used for your first set. Get an inexpensive complete set online or at some retail store.You'll have everything you need and not waste a bunch of money.

Something like this: http://www.rockbottomgolf.com/tig...h-bag.html

Once you actually learn to play, then you can upgrade to another set.

Quote from y2nicco View Post :
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?
Find an inexpensive complete set that is +1" in length. Don't waste $1000 putting together a set of nice clubs until you learn how to play.

I agree, or if you do want a premium line of clubs get these ($229.99) (includes a hybrid and GW): http://www.rockbottomgolf.com/ada...steel.html
The redline irons/hybrid for highly rated and provide you with distance and forgiveness. The hybrid would allow you to save money on a Wood for now and the GW provides a better utility club for a new golfer and a better gap than going straight from a PW to SW. You can easily use the GW to get out of the sand.

I love Callaway and owned their Diablos for a while (which unfortunately broke and still sold for $10 more than what I paid)... I then picked up a new left over set of Adams Idea A7OS (all hybrid & graphite shafts).
I really liked these and am actually happy that the previous ones were broken...

But to all the newbies here (me included, though I played extensively for a full year and consistently shoot early 80's now) my suggestion would be to buy what you like (cheap) and not get into "show-off" mode. It isn't really necessary although many people actually do it.

The janitor (who never took a lesson) from my work plays with me sometimes and he plays with his old battlesticks (that belonged to his father). He is way better than most of the fools on the course and I once spoke about my new set in front of him. His only words were "the clubs are only as good as the golfer". Sad but surprisingly TRUE!!!!

Thanks for the tips... I guess I should keep looking!
These are not "blades" but they are not beginner's clubs.

http://hotlist.golfdigest.com/l/3...ZR-X-Black

Considered "game improvement" but not "super game improvement." These would be good for mid-handicappers if you have trouble generating distance/speed.

These would be terrible, terrible beginner's clubs (and why would a beginner spend so freaking much on clubs in the first place?!?!).

Can't really agree with you. True to an extent...however...have you ever played with old blades from the 70s/80s? Holy crap - impossible to hit. Or an old wood driver?

Golf technology has come insanely far in the last 20 years, making it far more accessible to people, which is great. I have to say, if you think that guy is good, try putting modern clubs in his bag and see how much he improves.

Trying to decide on these or the taylormade burner plus set as well. Can be found on eBay for the same price. Time to retire my gifted graphite shaft clubs.

Is this a terrible value?

http://www.costco.com/CALLAWAY%C2...reId=10301

The +4 pieces are woods, driver, and a hybrid club. Also new to golf I have no idea if those 4 clubs but I'm guessing the that +250 dollars and tax is not worth it for those extra clubs.
