Calling Golfers!, Club advice needed

Hi everyone,

After being quite into golf when I was younger I am now planning on having a bit of a go again with my friends..

I have been looking at this complete set of clubs as a starting set to get me going again. However as I have been out of the scene for atleast 10 years I'm not sure what all the specification means (hybrid clubs??)

Would anyone be able to take a look and share an opinion of this looks like a good set or not... naturally I'm not expecting brilliance for £150 but reasonably decent.

or details below..

I've got a golf ball doing nothing in my garden, I picked it up outside my house before somebody put it through my window.

Not exactly what i was looking for in terms of advice, but feel free to post it to me.. :-D
Even if you haven't played for 10 years you should know you can't go wrong with Callaways. Because golf technology moves so fast, you can pick up a set of X12s from ebay for less than £100 now and they will be 100 times better than the Wilsons. Have a look at item 160237231726 for an example.
Grab yourself a steelhead 3 wood for about £25 such as item 220236965013 and a ping putter for about £20 and you'll have a much better set than the one you were referring to above.
I'm in the same boat megamoo, I've been using the same cheapo half set for about 10 years and wouldn't mind an cheapo upgrade (loved playing through people with their £500+ sets and getting par on my old trustys). That set looks the part but wouldn't have a clue.
Watch out for the fake chinese clubs on ebay though
Fake Chinese clubs are more of a problem if you're buying brand new off Ebay.

I had a handicap of 5 when I was 18 (6 years ago) and spent £1500 on my clubs:

I've got a set of Callaway X16 Pro series 3-9 iron, Callaway Hawk Eye pro series driver, Ping i3 3 wood, Scotty Cameron studio design putter and 3 Cleveland RTG wedges. I wouldn't change any of them even though the technology is quite old now

Pm me your address and I will:thumbsup:
There is a great deal of snobbishness about clubs etc but the bottom line is whether the clubs feel right for you. My opinion is that if you are a regular player with a low handicap then choosing the right (usually expensive) clubs can make a difference of several strokes (which is a relatively big difference). If you are 30 odd over player then several strokes difference is neither here or there. If you only going to be playing a couple of times a month in the summer then get a cheaper set that you happy with (and it also means you haven't shelled out lots of money if you only play once or twice a year).

The most important club is your putter so make sure you get one that suits you.
cheers for the advice so far guys.. its most appreciated...

Im thinking of going for the Wilson set... £149 + 10% quidco.. seems a solid deal for the money.. and if I get really into it I will upgrade.
I bought one of their Confidence rescue (7) wood for 1p (they sometimes have these 1p deals) thinking it would be rubbish and it really suits my game. With a brand name like Wilson you can't really go wrong.....
Do not buy the clubs before you try them, as they may be to light or too heavy for you for example.

I have spent a lot of money on my kit and it does make a difference, however I have been playing very regularly for a few years now.

I would recommend a hybrid club to replace your 3 and 4 iron, as they are much easier to hit, and control.

And make sure you are happy with your putter, as this is the club you will use more than any other in your bag.

Always remember what suits me may not suit you!!!!! Definately have a try with them first.
