Check this out before you buy Golf Clubs

By: glenn10
Before you purchase a set of used golf clubs, you must remember to check the quality of the clubs and consider how often you will use them.

Buying used golf clubs is an excellent option for golfers who don't intend to play that much, as well as totally new golfers who want to give golf a shot.

The first thing to look for on a set of used golf clubs is the club heads. Clubs that have been used a lot will have a shiny worn spot in the center. This is a problem that can affect the flight of the golf ball.

The next item to check is the grip. Keep an eye out for cracks and splits. Worn areas in the grip are also telltale signs of a heavy club use. You won't want to have to re-grip the clubs; re-gripping can easily set you back another $5 to $15.

Next, you should check the set together to make sure that they are all parts of one original set. You don't want different models in the same set.

Once you have done all this, you should check the price. There are people out there who will charge more for a used set of clubs than a brand new set with the same model.

Always shop around first and get an idea of the brand you want; make sure you see the average price of the set as a whole. If you are picking up a set of clubs from a garage sale, there is always the option to haggle the price down and save yourself some cash.

You won't really know how good the clubs are unless you get to test them. Don't be rushed into making a purchase, especially for a set of golf clubs that might not work with your own personal swing. Ask the shop attendant or seller at a garage sale if it's okay to give the clubs a demo run. Get a feel for the golf clubs and see if they work for you.
