Trying to get information of Set of Clubs

5 posts in this topic

Hi, new to this forum. Very high handicap golfer looking to improve my game.  Currently using a set of irons I bought used about 10 years ago.  I went to research the clubs to see if I could learn enough about them to decide to reshaft, sell, keep or what to do with them.  Google searching has brought up no information on this set of irons and I was hoping you golf educated individuals could help me.

The head of the club says "Legend" by Palmer on the back of the club.  I can't find this set anywhere. The head is a stainless steel head. They have a Palmer logo graphite shaft.  The main issue I have had, is over the last couple of years I have head the head of the 3,7, and 8 irons all break off and multiple other shafts showing wear and dings and I'm worried I'm going to lose even more heads. So trying to decide between buying a new max G I set, or if getting this set re-shafted would be worth it ( if the clubs are only worth <$100, dont see point in spending more than that on just shafts).

Any insight would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks

there is no point in getting clubs like that re-shafted.

Ok thanks for the info.

So today I went to local golf store to try out some used and new clubs to find a full set of irons.  Picked up a 4-PW used set of Callaway Hawk Eye VTF irons with steel shaft for $225.  Couldn't find much info about them other than a few reviews.  Will take them to the driving range later tonight.  Finding these online with a wide range of prices, do you guys think I got a fair deal?  Can take them back within 30 days if I don't like them.

I was a Callaway guy for years I only switched to Ping in the last months only becasue I liked the way they played and need new clubs. Although I had never played that model I have friends that have owned or still do play those clubs and they have been very happy with them. I dont recall if they have the Uni-flex shaft in them or not that may be the only issue you have with them, that shaft is a love them or hate them relationship. IMO it was a bad move to go to that shaft, but my son likes them I hate them.

You have 30 days give your self a bit of time to get used to them. As far as the deal goes my sons X20 in really great condition where $200. Callaway has your model on the Pre Owned site for $212 on up to $348 so if your happy with the price and the clubs fit you well , you got a good deal and you are the one that matters.

Have fun Callaway is a great brand.

    • Ready golf except in match play. Match play is different. 
    • Yep! I have both a FJ jacket and pants in rainwear that I bought years ago. I don't use them very often so they've lasted a long time. But, they're heavy and hot! They were made before GoreTex and other waterproof, breathable fabrics. My advice? Get the absolute best you can afford! They will last you a long time, they will keep you comfortable, they will be light, and they won't impede your swing very much.
    • Thanks for all the responses. I think this boils down to the context of the situation. I had two of the foursome busting chops about hitting out of order on previous holes. Then the first time it was mildly inconvenient for them to wait, the holed out just as i hit the green. Mind you.  This wasnt an "adventure" hole.. I hit the green on stroke 5 because of a flub shot that went about 10 ft. And an errant approach that left me about 10 yards short of the green. In any other case I agree that its perfectly fine to hit when ready, but not if you complain about hitting out of order. I guess to paint the picture, one whipped a club on the 3rd hole due to sculling a shout out of the bunker.. on another hole had one of them walking towards green right in front of my approach.. he nicely moved about 3 yards to the right as i asked him to move. As karma would have it, i hit the shot straight at him and nearly hit him.. these were friends of mine.. so a lesson learned to play golf with different friends..
    • Picked one up and checked it out in a store the other day. First thing I noticed about it was how heavy it was. Reminded me of when I went out for the HS golf team, and the coach had a Driver with a solid steel head on it. He advised us that we were NOT to hit drives with it! It was for warm up only. Being as heavy as it is, I think the main benefit to it might be that it slows your transition from backswing to downswing. There's a whole lot of guys who could use that!
    • OK, this kind of clears things up for me. I thought you might have been trying to take close ups of clubheads impacting golf balls. In that case you'd need something numbering in the several thousands of fps! If all you need is to look at swings I'd say anything the budget allows should suffice. Consider the 960fps system mentioned. If a golf swing takes about I second, at a playback rate of 30fps, that gives you a swing video of 32 seconds in length. Plenty long enough to see the golfer's bodily motions. Considering how small the clubhead will appear when videoing the entire golfer, I don't know that fps is the main consideration. It could be pixel count and the quality of the lenses. This reminds me of my "audiophile" days when cassette tapes were all the rage. I had a BIC deck that could record at 7 1/2 ips (inches per second), and an Audiovox car player that could play back at that speed. The sound quality was amazing! You were putting the same amount of info into twice as much space! There was so much more room!
