New Iron Question

7 posts in this topic

I am looking at getting a new set of irons. I'm currently in college but am picking up golf and decided i want to invest some more in the sport. Does anyone have any suggestions- what store I should go to? what brands i should look at?

I don't typically spend much on myself, being in college and all... but want to get a great value as these will be with me for a looong time. Thanks!

You will probably here this alot when it comes to buying golf equipment. hsolist is the way to shop when it comes to golf clubs. I bought my irons, woods, driver, wedges and putter seperately on hsolist. If I would have bought them at golfsmith or the golf warehouse it would have cost me over $1700. I spent less than half that for top notch clubs.

Go to Golfsmith. the one off 62 in Edina has a great used rack. That way you get to hit them first and pay no shipping. I am a low handicapper who only plays used equipment. I got Hogan apex plus irons there for $160. for people just picking up golf, it is a myth that expensive equipment will help your game. Perhaps really junky clubs would hurt, but expensive gear helps little. Hitting thousands of balls and hours of short game practice is what helps.

Sorry for being preachy.

Good golf equipment doesn't have to be expensive. Hitting 1000s of ball with with cheap clubs that aren't designed for beginners won't help much either. I spent alot of time hitting hand me down cheap clubs and the only thing it helped was that I learned to scramble and play my weaknesses. It's hard to learn on old forged clubs when you have a slice swing and no coach. wink Buy some nice(not necessarily expensive) cavity back irons and work on your game and you can get to be a good local player. I used old forged clubs and short cavity back irons for 15 years until I ordered some custom clubs built for me. It didn't take long and I was down to a 2.3 handicap. The old clubs taught me how to scramble and the new clubs helped me learn how to play.

Buy a decent putter and practice your short game. It will save you more strokes than any set of irons

I agree, but you still need to keep it in the fairway. Army golf can do just as much damage as a [PoorWordUsage] short game. Most cavity back clubs are stupid easy to hit. See if you can find yourself a good used set of Taylor Made rac os2.

find yourself a good golf shop. they should let you hit the used clubs, and you will be able to feel what's best for you.

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
