Been out of the golfing scene for a couple years (wife in grad school means we have no money)... Currently I have old hand me down graphite irons, not sure what brand but they aren't good.
I want to upgrade to some newer Callaway/Taylor Made/Cobra or whatever I can get a good deal on while maintaining quality.
I'm going to buy used because I do have a budget and I want to replace all of my clubs, so I'm hoping my irons can stay under $250 if possible. Looking on eBay and Craigslist.
i found a guy on Craigslist selling his Callaway X20 iron set with a lob and approach for $200 w/ a bag. Without the bag I got him down to $130 for all the clubs. I know these are 8-9 years old (maybe more?) so I'm curious if innovation and updates to clubs are too far beyond these.
At the moment, my thought is for $130, it's worth it just to buy them and see how I like them for a few months. If I don't, I should be able to sell and get my money back.
Is this a good price?
Are the x20's too old at this point?
Anyone have opinions on the x20s? I see mixed stuff online, but my assumption is it's Callaway and it'll be light years better than my trash I have now. Mostly I want very forgiving irons that are easy to hit. I'm not exactly a pro :)
thanks in advance!
