Need to split up the purchase of a new set of Irons, which clubs should i get first?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I'm looking to get fitted for a new set of Mizuno JPX 825 or 825 Pros as I have been playing with my Taylormade 360XD irons for a few months after taking a hiatus from golf. I've gotten MUCH better with ball striking to where I expect to hit a decent shot nearly every time. I think that a new set of custom fitted clubs will do me well at this point, but I can't afford to shell out for the full set at once. I was given a good deal on club pricing and I think I can do 4-5 clubs now and get the rest of the set next month. I was thinking of starting with 5-9, then come back for the wedges and decide whether I want to get the 4-iron or not(consistency is most important right now and I like my new hybrid 22 RBZ). Thoughts?

 

 

 

 

Before I took a break for a few years I shot about 115 a round. Now I'm sitting in the low 90s after 3 months. So much help out there on YouTube.

Nike SQ 13 deg. driver

TM Fireburner 3-W

TM RBZ 22 deg

TM 360 XD 3-PW

MaxFli Rev 56 deg

Torey Penna 60 deg

Are they going to let you buy only a partial set? Is the total cost the same regardless of how many irons you buy at a time?

 

Generally buying single irons (or less than a set) is significantly more expensive per iron than purchasing the whole set. 

 

If you can buy a set of 6 irons for 600, or three at a time for 100 each, then no reason not to go that route.

I was quoted at $75 per club for the 825's and $90 per club for the 825 Pros at my local pro shop with fitting. So I can purchase the set in any number of clubs at one time.

Interesting. In that case, as long as all the clubs have the same setup (loft, lie, shaft, etc), then I'm not sure why you couldn't get them piecemeal.

Will I notice more of a benefit going with the longer clubs first? Or should I start with GW-7?

I would figure out which clubs you hit a majority of the time and buy those first.

I'm no expert, but I would go first for 6 to Pitching Wedge. These are the clubs I use most often

Yeah, +1 for the lower clubs first. I think you get more shots for your money that way... especially if you're the type of golfer you say you are.

Go 6-PW

It will give you a good idea of whether you can hit 5i or lower, or whether you should go hybrid In the lower irons

Thank you everyone for your advice. I decided on getting the full set of 4-GW, and I was able to work out a deal with my shop that I can purchase 5 of the clubs to start out and put a deposit on the other clubs in the set. The reasoning behind this is so I don't have to pay additional shipping for the other clubs. They will just hold them until I can afford to not break the bank.
