Started playing golf in May, or at least started taking lessons. I was in the same "which set to buy" dilemma and after talking to many people and a lot of research I bought the Adams Tight Lies 2011 Plus set. The 2011 set has 3h, 4h and 5i thru PW where the 2012 set has 4h, 5h, 6i thru PW so the 2011 has one more club. Couldn't have been happier with my purchase. Doubt you can find a 2011 Plus set but the 2012 Adams Tight Lies Plus is a great buy as well. Look on Ebay...
One thing I forgot to say, I video every lesson and when I get home I review the video and make notes. My instructor also makes available the videos he makes of my swing and keeps them on file for later tune ups.  
I'm on lesson 5 of 10 which I take once a week. Since I'm retired I have plenty of time to practice. I am using a PGA certified instructor who's been teaching for a long time and I paid $600 for 10 lessons. I have several friends who golf and I asked around and they said he was the best. I would stay away from young instructors and find one with experience. Experience goes a long way when teaching someone golf. He uses video analysis and seems to be able to communicate...
I just bought a new in box Adams 1114 set off ebay. The reason I bought it was because it has 3h, 4h, and 5-pw irons. Paid 299 + shipping and unfortunately tax because we were in same state...
Thanks Tygger, I'm still pulling my hair out about which beginner set to buy. The 2012 complete set has a 4h, 5h, 6-pw irons. The 2011 complete set has 3h, 4h, 5-pw irons which appeals to me more. The 2011 set actually costs more on ebay than the 2012 set. Decisions, decisions...  
Yukari, your avatar is a little too spicy for me but I'm old and you're young so maybe it's just me.
Is the Tight Lies Plus hybrid bag a stand bag? The description say's it's a cart/carry bag but doesn't mention a stand. A stand is important to me since I walk the course and carry my bag.  
Anyone know of a source for the full version of the screen saver? I have the lite version along with the CD and the book and at one time had downloaded the full version but that was 3 laptops ago...  
Back playing or rather relearning golf after 40 years. Lots of new confusing technology now...
I'm in the same boat, I've started back after 40 years and having to relearn everything. I'm using a really old cheap set of Spalding Clubs and I've been told that they will do nothing but create bad habits. Unfortunately I don't have enough of a swing developed yet to be custom fitted for clubs so a boxed set seems to be the way to go. I would really like to invest in a nice set of Pings but I'm not "qualified" to be custom fitted. A golf pro told me I'd be better off...
