    Irons first for sure. I’d like to stay under 500 for them.

    You can check out the club manufactures’ website for pre-owned clubs if you’re into that. I’m confident the clubs I got had never been used and came with a steep discount.

    Do you keep a handicap? Level of ball striking? Current irons?

    Nope (probably something like an 18), no idea, and some Orlimar or some shit my parents bought me YEARS ago.

    I want new irons too. May go to a used shop. Don’t play enough to warrant anything nice.

    Short and slice off the tee which ruins most holes. Strike irons well. Incredible yips from 5 feet and in, which leads to too many 3 putts.

    Create an account and start perusing. I haven’t bought new in years.

    https://forums.golfwrx.com/forum/56-classifieds-for-sale-forum/

    As for make/model, go through Golf Digest’s hot list for game improvement irons (or super game improvement if you’re not very good). You can google previous years to line up buying used.

    Looking like a combo of this may work. I never really considered used but it make a ton of sense.

    I just bought new irons for the first time and got fitted. Now I’m like a “improving 15 Handicap” but I was amazed at the difference shafts made. Do you throw different shafts in when you do this or it just doesn’t matter to you?

    I've gotten a couple used sets off of eBay and gotten great deals. The last set of Taylormades I got I used for a year then traded them in to Taylormade for more than I paid.

    I can’t answer for him, but I go and get fitted, pay the hour fee then go find the set combination on either eBay or GolfWRX. Sometimes it will take a couple of weeks for them to pop up but I’ve been successful so far.

    Friend of mine does similar but certain times he has had to buy the heads and the shafts separately and have them installed.

    This does bring up a question. Has anyone messed with irons that are all the same length? I like the idea in theory.

    this.

    Fitting if you aren’t a consistent ball striker is a bit of a scam (just my opinion, some disagree) but if you are then it’s absolutely worth it.

    when I get a new driver I just change out the shaft I have now. Irons will buy heads and shafts separated.

    Yes. I acutely highly recommend cobra stuff. For whatever reason you seem to be able to buy it cheaper second hand. I had the F7 one length irons and regret getting rid of them.

    We sold Cobra at the CC I worked at in college, I always liked their stuff. I think I’m hunting for something Cobra, the Pings recommended, or Taylor made.

    The Smiths I bought a few weeks ago didn’t fit quite right so they were returned. Bought some Costas today.

    Costa sunglasses are 20% off this weekend on the website in case anyone is in the market.

    If it's in decent enough shape you can probably get Goodwill or the Salvation Army to come take it.

    I had to junk a couch a few years back. Cost $120 for them to come take it out of my apartment.

    Thanks. I'm guessing it's not in good enough shape for Goodwill-type places to want it. But I will talk with them tomorrow.

    And I'm not posting on Facebook marketplace/OfferUp, that shit is so unreliable. Wouldn't be good with having a deadline.

    So I'll get a couple quotes from junk removal places. Hoping for $120 or less.
