Top 10 Reasons Not to Buy Used Clubs

You're tired of your old set of clubs, and to top it off your Eight Iron is still bent from that tree getting in the way of your last approach shot.

You're ready for some new clubs, but you didn't realize they'd gotten so darn expensive. Your wife is not going to let you spend the kids college funds, so what do you do now?

Well your first thought might be to try and find some used clubs. After all how much could club designs and technology have changed in the past year or two. Also, you can probably get used clubs for about half the price.

Here's why this first thought is wrong.

10. The used clubs were made for someone else

Why get something made for someone else when you can get something made that's fitted exactly for you.

9. They're probably not the right length or shaft flex

Unless you are about the same height as the previous owner, the clubs may not be the correct length. If the previous owner was a fast swinger or a slow swinger the shaft flex may not be right for you.

8. The technology is most likely outdated

Things have changed a lot over the last 5 years. Club heads and materials have made golf clubs much more forgiving and there are more choices in style and level of play.

7. They may not have the right kind of heads

If you're a beginner and you need more forgiveness, you want a set of clubs that offer super game improvement. That means extra perimeter weighting, wide soles, hosel offset and a low center of gravity.

6. There is no guarantee

What if the head comes off after a couple of months, can you still get it fixed?

5. You can't take them back

What if after a few rounds you decide you don't like them? Can you return them for a full refund? Can you switch the shaft, or change the lie out at no extra charge? Can you try them out for a couple of rounds and still take them back?

4. They are still too expensive

If you're paying over $200 for a used set of irons or over $150 for a used driver you may still be paying too much.

3. Not the right configuration for you

Does the set have hybrids, high lofted woods, and game improvement irons. If not they may not be right for you. If the set comes with a 2, 3, or 4 iron, you may be buying clubs that are too difficult for you to hit and you end up not using them.

2. Not the right loft for your game

If the driver has less than 12 degrees of loft you probably have a club that will not get the maximum distance-or the accuracy

And the number one reason you should not buy used clubs...

1. They're used

What else is there to say..

Did you know...

You can buy a brand new set of clubs with a 1 year warranty and a 30 day money back return policy (you can even play with them during the 30 day period). You can get them custom fitted and get the exact club length for your body, get the lie adjusted for free, get the right shaft for your swing speed, and choose from a variety of brand new, finest quality grips and shafts...all for less than you could pay for a used set of clubs.
