Why shouldn’t you be?

Actually if adjustable, they should be fitted to your swing. This assuming you already have a decent swing into ball impact.

For a new player, I don't think it's worth money to invest in getting your clubs fit and adjusted for you from a financial POV. Even if they're really not right for you, you're still going to be able to use them as you learn the game.

You can do a static fitting using the Ping color chart.  It won’t help you with shaft flex, but at lest you’ll know it the lie and length is close.

the problem is that while they might be able to adjust the length of the shaft, depending upon the age of the clubs they might not be able to adjust the lie angle.

This is pretty much a personal thing. I’m using Ping i20 fitted to my son when he was 14, and on the range use Mizuno MP32 with KBS XStiff 1 inch longer without any issues.

Get fit if it’s in your budget, but it’s not a total game changer if you do or don’t.

I’d just use the chart to find out if the clubs are in the range for you.  Your only concern would be if you got something way off.  If they are, get rid of them and get something closer.  After all, you are just starting and they’re used, I wouldn’t sweat it if they’re close.

Edit added:  You would probably be better off taking some lessons.
