Clubs...

of the golf variety. I am 6' 1" so longer clubs are better. Looking for a good used set for cheap...

Are you looking for a beginner set or something more up scale? Do you now own a set?

I am just starting...I guess I dont want a super expensive set...these things are insane for good clubs...I go maybe once a month now with the possibility of more times in the future. My friends and I are just starting. Yet I dont want a junk set from like Dunhams sports, new for $199.

Ideally I would find a set that was 3-500 range and is now more like the 100-150 range.

I know I dont ask for much.

That's why I sent you the Acer link. I had Cleveland CG-4 which I paid a small fortune for and then tried a set of the Acer XDS irons. Hard to believe but they are more forgiving and straighter than the Clevelands! First time in my life I have ever stepped down in clubs but I have no regrets.

Yeah, they looked good but to build a set would still be...like 600 bones...unless you know of some used ones, thats not in the budget for now. Thanks for the tip though.

Not sure if there is a Sports Authority near you or not, they have 3 locations in WI. I picked up a nice starter set complete with bag for $200. It is a John Daly signature series with graphite shafts by no-name which originally sold for $400. They have un-advertised sales going on all the time, you might want to check them out if possible.

Try any proshop that makes off brand stuff... I can get a 9 club set for the boys for $125! With a bag too!! For an adult set minus a few clubs

If you can find a guy... no need to get every club when your just starting out.

A buddy of mine bought a nicer set (by Walmart standards[pretty low]) from Walmart and he out plays these guys with uber expensive sets.

As you always say yourself, money doesn't buy talent.

As I always say, Golf is homosexual.

Try Walmart.

I am looking at garage sales...no luck yet. You say golf is homo but you love to go to the driving range and goof off...imagine doing that in a ever changing beautiful setting with the + of doing donuts in the golf carts!! Its a blast.

He's afraid he will suck at it... which he will! And then he will try and be good at it... which he never will! And then he will be sucked in to the sport like we are... and be screwed for the rest of his life.

I would say stay away from garage sale. Some one already said it. Find a good golf shop or a place that specializes in "knock-offs". Instead of Cobra's you might get Venom's? My buddy bought a "knock-off" of my Cleveland's for about $200, complete set.
