I need help finding new clubs

13 posts in this topic

I'm a beginner and need something forgiving. I was thinking the Callaway RAZR x HL, Callawat X-20, or TaylorMade Burner 2.0. All are around $200. Any recommendations?

The Callaway X-22's are probably available at a similar price by now, even if slightly used.

How much of a beginner are you--as in never played, or played years ago and gave it up, etc?

I had the x20s but changed last year to amp cells My dad now uses them and we have nothing but good things to say. Like someone else said. X22 might be a better option

The X-22 is sort of a later model of the X-20, and came in two versions. I think the X-22 was sort of superceded by the X-Hot, even though they were available at the same time. I think the X-22's were slightly more forgiving than the X-20's. I have never played them, but have hit them in hitting booths and they felt pretty good.

If I were to buy my clubs over I'd probably get a set of Taylormade Rocketblades.  Whether they would be a good intro club or not I'm not sure but they were my #2 choice when testing clubs at the store last summer.

Acer makes some great clubs similiar to Callaway. Way less and you could upgrade to a better shaft for the same money. A set of Acer heads is less than 100 on ebay. If I had to have brand name gear I would buy the 588 MT, very forgiving.

The X20 and the X22 irons were both in Maltby's Ultra Game Improvement category.

One difference: The X20s had a brush nickel finish, while the X22s had a chrome finish. The X20s won't show bag wear as much, and won't flash reflections on sunny days.

As for @Dave2512, all Cleveland 588 series irons went into price break in this spring. Good deals available. I tried the MTs with a lighter steel shaft in January, and they really flew well. The 4i felt as smooth as a 7i.

Yeah @WUTiger ies is good stuff and on sale now, about $62.00 a club new with the stock Traction 85 shaft. I use the 588 TT and I have a few Altitude's, absolutely love the TT and the mix and match design of the series. Wouldn't mind trading my TT 5i for an MT.

The Cobra Baffler irons can be had at a good price right now.  They are easy to hit.

I have sets of the latter two clubs in your list. They are pretty good clubs, and really lift the ball in the air. Never tried the RAZR X HL, but I imagine they would be similar. Newer clubs are going to be 3x the cost, and if you plan to improve your swing you will need new clubs anyway.

    • A figment of Bill Kristol's imagination.
    • LOL, I had to read it a bunch of times too.  Still not 100% but ... I think the confusion was brought in by their effort to minimize the severity of the "issue."  They could have just said "an issue that could prevent headphone audio controls from working," but I assume that they wanted to stress that the issue is minor and they're not always not working, only temporarily.   Funny thing is once they added to the "temporarily" they could have dumped the "not" - it means basically the same thing with or without the "not."
    • Entered the last week of the regular season on Monday.  It was also Senior Night.  Typically, it is a great night for us and did end good.  However, it was a rough start.  One of my seniors was pulled over driving to our course and had 3 other players in her car.  While she was given a warning, they got to our course late and so, were rushed to get dressed and on the course.  Naturally, she was shaken up.  My #1 was again medalist but we shot the worst score we have shot on they year.  We shot a 215 and that is terrible.  We lost to both opponents we played that night and have beaten both by 20 this year.  Today was our conference tournament.  It is held at a very tough course for girls, has a lot of sand and water and trees.  My #4 who is really my #3 but I defer to an older girl at #3 could not play since she was rushed to the emergency room.  She is very sick.  Anyway, my #1 shot a 77 on a windy cold day and was Medalist.  She out shot the next competitor by 11 strokes.  Her round was one of the most amazing rounds I've seen.  Our conference is very competitive in girl's golf and yet, the #1s from all the other teams could not keep up with her.  My #2 was also All Conference.  From there, we were terrible but in line with the other girls.  Still, when you are missing the young lady that has been averaging 94 per 18 holes, you are not going to win.  We didn't.  Regional Tournament next.  It is on our home course BUT we never get to play those holes.  We have 27 Holes and so, never are allowed on the first 18 due to league play.  I am hoping we get to play those holes now in practice since league is over.  Finally, Senior Night is a celebration of our Seniors.  The other girls bought them some very nice gifts.  It was also my birthday.  They got me an extremely nice Triad Golf Jacket.  I needed it today since we were in the mid 60s with a very hard wind.  I am so blessed to get to be their coach. 
    • Wow! Hillary only got 2% on my quiz.  I knew I didnt like her, but I didnt think it was that bad.
    • I tried to find the debate, but all I could find on was some new reality show called "The Biggest Liar", where two people went after each other as hard as they could for 90 minutes.  When it was over, there was no clear winner, and the only loser was the American people.   I took the quiz, I side with Evan McMullin...........who the hell is Evan McMullin?????
