Older clubs to fit

Hi folks,

I'm on a budget of about 1000 dollars to upgrade driver irons and hybrids.  I have looked at most new club markups and they come out at about double that.  If I were to get clubs that were used how old is too old.  My thought being I can get them adjusted.  


Any suggestions what direction to go wish this would be great.

I'm using a 20 or so year old set of Hogan Apex plus irons. They feel better, suit my swing better and travel just as far as all the newer clubs I've tried. Even the old 40 year old golden bear irons I have still perform at a good level. They may fall a few club lengths shy of newer irons, but I hit long anyway. I think as long as they were quality clubs to start, most anything is going to still suit your game.

I'm sure this is wrong advice, but older clubs haven't hurt my play. I find myself grabbing the old clubs vs my TaylorMade way too often.

OP, what are you playing now?

Shop the major retailers who are closing out 2 year old models. Dick's for instance has PING G30 series

irons 599

Driver 249

Hybrids 149 and you can get one hybrid at 25% off if you buy online

So, driver, 2 hybrids, and irons for 1,108. 

They have Mizuno JPX EZ irons for $389

I am not plugging Dick's; other retailers have similar deals at this time of year. And sometimes you can get even a better deal at smaller shops.

Getting an old set and having them adjusted is not going to yield you any better results financially than getting a new set. If you're looking for the most bang for the buck, look at www.thegolfworks.com and get a set of their maltby irons built to your spec and flex.  They're only about $299 for the whole set.   The woods are just as amazing but you could find a used OEM driver for cheaper.
