Top 10 reasons NOT to buy used clubs
gigagolf.com

You're ready for some new clubs but when you went to the store the prices blew you away. You didn't realize they'd gotten so expensive. Your wife won't let you spend the kids inheritance, so now what do you do? Well your first thought might be to try and find some used clubs. After all how much could club designs have changed in a year of two. You can probably get used clubs for half the price. Why not?

10. They were made for someone else -- Why get something made for someone else when you can get something made that's fitted exactly for you?

9. They're not the right length or shaft flex -- Unless you are about the same height as the other guy, used clubs may not be the right length. If the guy before you was a fast swinger or a slow swinger the shaft flex may not be right for you.

8. They're old technology -- Things have changed a lot in the last 5 years. Club heads and materials have made golf clubs more forgiving and there are more choices.

7. They may not be the right kind of heads -- If you're a beginner and need forgiveness, you want clubs that offer super game improvement. That means extra perimeter weighting, wide soles, hosel offset and a low center of gravity. Do those used clubs offer what YOU need?

6. They have no guarantee -- What if the head comes off after 7 or 8 months, can you still get it fixed? Probably not.

5. If you need an adjustment -- What if you don't like them after a couple of weeks? Can you switch the shaft out? Can you try them out for a couple of weeks and get an upgrade?

4. They're still too expensive -- If you're paying over $200 for a used set of irons or over $150 for a used driver you may still be paying too much.

3. Not the right configuration -- Does the set have hybrids, high lofted woods, and game improvement irons. If not they may not be for you. If they have a 2, 3, or 4 iron, you may be buying clubs that are too difficult for you and you won't use.

2. Worn out grips -- The average life span of a grip is about a year. Grips have become expensive to replace.

1. They're used -- Need I say more?
