New or Used Golf Set?
A new golf set is better than an old one with costly to replace worn out and slippery golf grips. Moreover, if considering a 10 year old set or more, you will have a hard time playing golf. Technology (design and manufacturing) keep enhancing golf clubs performance making them easier to hit.
What to look for in a used golf set
This said, may be you are lucky enough to find a golf set hardly used and quite recent. But first, make sure at least it suits your needs:
- Are you a righty or lefty golfer?
- Is it a woman, man, senior or junior golf set?
- How many clubs does it have?
- Does it include a putter and sandwedge?
- Does it come with a bag?
Golf Set for Woman, Man, Senior or Junior?
Do not be fooled by this classification. Some not so tall women are better off with a junior set, whereas fit or strong women can play with a man set.
More Complicated than it Looks
Choosing the right golf set is more complicated than you may think.
- Hand size determines grip size.
- Swing speed determines shaft stiffness.
- Swing weight depends on body fitness.
- Graphite shafts are lighter but steel shafts are more precise.
- Do you like more fairway metals or hybrids?
- Are you a beginner or advanced golfer?
- Would you like more irons or more hybrids?
- Full set or half set?
So! If in doubt, call a qualified person.
