You could probably get a higher quality set of used clubs on hsolist for that or a little more. Make sure they are cavity back irons as they are much easier to get in the air and are more forgiving on mi[PoorWordUsage]s. I'd probably stick with steel shafts. I know everyone likes new stuff but when you can get used, high quality name brand clubs for anything less than $200 I think you should go for it. hsolist! It's a beautiful thing. Also check around at garage sales and auctions you will be surprised at what you will find.

like any other sport, you get what you pay for. These $100.00 sets are made of cheap iron, poor quality shafts and are inconsistent. I golfed with a guy who had some Fleet Farm irons with graphite shafts and he would hit his 6 iron 155 yrds and his 7 iron about 170 yrds and after about a year his shafts started to break. If you're just beginning, buy some used brand name cavity back irons and a 3 wood. You can tee off with a 3 wood, use it on the fairway and it's easier to hit. Once you graduate and get on someones payroll, you can upgrade.

Good luck, it's a great game.

Edit: This is weird, for some reason I was thinking you mentioned you were still in college, which prompted the "graduate" comment. Oh well, I'm blaming it on having a senior moment. crazy

Yes they will be fine for you and it won't hurt the pocket book to bad.

Plus the return policy at WallWorld is 2nd to none if you change your mind!

I used a cheap set for a few years at first. I would recommend checking out a sportmart also though. For just a few bucks more you can get a lot more clubs. Since some of the cheap starter sets only come with odd # irons.

Yep, buy a cheap set, beat the crud out of them, and then in a few years if you're still into golf get a better set.

    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
    • Concrete. Way easier to plow. My parents have a gravel driveway WORST THING EVER! Impossible to snow blow because of all the rocks always wet and muddy. Sure it's cheaper but in the long it's not worth the cheaper price. 
    • I have used a Lowrance XOG (no longer available) on my boat and on my snowmobile for years now with no problems with cold or speed of tracking. I use a Lakemaster card for Minnesota lake for fishing, a Navionics card for coverage in Canada and LOW for winter and summer fishing, and a Red Pine snowmobile trail map for riding. Have ridden at 30 below without any problem with the touchscreen, it is hooked up to sled power, so it probably is getting some heat, and I put it inside my jacket when I get off. I recommend that you do a little research on the available chips for where you are going because different manufacturers use different chips. My use pretty much limits me to Garmin, and expect to pay couple to $300+ for chips for where I travel.
