    That's a good price, but if you're trying to learn golf, blades are gonna be ridiculously hard to hit. Try finding some cavity back for cheap they're more forgiving.

    As I have stated on Clutchfans many times, I am the Houston tech rep for Callaway Golf. I do know everything about golf clubs, enough to bore you to tears. I was working all weekend and just saw this thread.

    Your $40 set is crap. But you don't have to spend a lot on used golf clubs and you can do fine with even a cheap box set. Just make sure you get a set with plenty of offset, and a deep cavity back so they are easier to play. For your driver get enough loft and a light enough shaft, fairway woods matter less but more lofted ones will be easier to hit, pass on the 3 wood , get a 4 if you can, also get a 5 and maybe a 7.

    For better golfers all that above is not necessarily true.

    Anybody with golf questions can email me though the board.

    Nice, glad to know this. I got one of the Callaway 4h diablo's and I'm loving it. Thinking about getting the 2h as well.

    Earlier this year I picked up a set of used 2006 Big Bertha's and that has made golf a lot more enjoyable for me. I'm only bad now instead of terrible. I had been trying to play with some old Titleist blades for a while and that made things way more difficult than they needed to be.

    The 2h is 17 degrees, pretty flat, will probably side spin. Try a 5 wood. Same loft but bigger head, lower center of gravity (1" longer shaft can be a little harder to square though).

    The choice is just the user's preference.

    I can't tell you how you did unless you take a picture of the back of the blade.

    You'll probably find that you can use the irons for a long time and anything else you buy would be a minor upgrade until you get a lot better. However, you can probably do a lot better than those woods - the technology for woods has come a long way in the last 10-15 years.

    Someone was assuming that the irons were blades, but they don't look it from the picture. Even if they were, I learned to play golf with blades - it's not that big of a deal.

    Yeah these clubs look lightly used by based on the style they're pretty old. At the same time, it does come with a bag and everything. You really can't get a full set with a bag for any less than $40, so it's a pretty good buy.
