Re: How much is your golf set worth?I picked up a set of Top Flite xl's as a starter set back in April. I was planning on sticking with that for a year or two until my swing was better, but some great deals fell in my lap so i decided to upgrade early
Bridgestone Stand Bag-$180 (full price, but had to have it when i saw it in Dick's. Needed something with durable stand legs as well, that was the one flaw i really found in the top flite set)
Cleveland Hibore XLS 9.5-$40 (clearance at Dick's i guess, still can't believe this deal. I was seriously considering paying FULL PRICE for this club only a week or two prior, and that was at 100 bucks solid)
Cleveland Launcher 2h, 6-PW- $130 (pretty great condition with dd2's already on, gotta love friends who need money =])
Cleveland Launcher Dual Wedge, Sand Wedge-$80 (I'd prefer some Callaway Jaws or Vokeys, but the off season has been rough on my work hours =[)
Ping I series Anser putter-$115 (First thing i swapped out of my starter set, again full price but had to have it, messed with it in my courses pro shop for weeks before i finally took the plunge)
so all in all around $545 for my current bag, which when you consider the original market price of the launcher irons alone, I'd say it was a good season, at least as far as good deals go.
I have to say though, I don't regret buying the box set at all. For the money, I swear by em. I'm not the hardest hitter around, but unless you're constantly POUNDING the ball and always mishitting towards the heel of the club, these things aren't breaking. A few ball dents here and there sure, but it should hold up. Maybe I'm just biased because I broke 100 for the first time with this set, but something about having a nice, matched set of clubs when you start out instead of old hand-me-downs did wonders for my confidence.
