Let me know!

Rick Shiels Golf I know I'm late, remember it's 37 consecutive videos #hurricanemaria, but this is your best product testing video you have made. Marketing vs rules that don't allow big changes and this is the true results. Thanks for being true and honest in your tests. Keep it up!

I've been playing for 6 years, I NEVER buy new, except for my putter. You're 5 year driver tests confirm what I've believed, driver heads don't make a huge difference, I look for a shaft I like

Great video again Rick! I'm loving the video's you're doing in association with Golf Bidder.

I bought my set from there about 3 months ago after not playing golf for about 14/15 years and I can't fault them at all. 2009 Wilson Di7 irons, 4-SW, and to get myself used to playing again they're great. Came in bloody brilliant condition, like they'd never been used before! Just using a cheap putter & driver at the moment but looking at a second hand Ping Rapture v2 3W (£63) and a Callaway Big Bertha Alpha (£95) to keep myself ticking over.

A question I would like you to answer, if possible, is what is the difference between just a cheap putter and an expensive one? Like a cheap £20 Dunlop jobby vs a second hand Odyssey or a brand new big brand one like the Taylor Made TP collection etc. as it's putting in particular that I find is killing my rounds.

Yes! Rick I purchased a second hand Cobra F7 driver this year, great condition, and it has added 10-15 yards to my drive and my accuracy has greatly improved.  Since I'm finding more fairways my scores have dropped considerably.  I paid $125.00 for it and the original head cover came with it.  I have purchased other used clubs before and they have always performed great!  New clubs are overrated unless you need that first time club fitting, then maybe it's worth it, but I always look for used clubs and highly recommend it!!

I had a beginners set purchased new that i used for 15 years, a no name club that i think was a rip off of Callaway big bertha. Driver and 3 wood bent at the hosel fairly quickly. I just dealt with the 3w, replaced driver with another off the shelf brand. Used this driver for 10 years. 18 months ago i got a set of TM r7 irons 3rd hand, and a Callaway Razr Fit extreme driver and 3w combination for $200 (AUD). Purchased a new putter (odyssey rossie II) last year.

Rick Shiels Golf - How about this same type of video with different types of irons (blades and cavity backs), hybrids, and fairway woods? I️ would like to see whether there is a difference in 5-7 year old irons versus today’s irons, especially major brands’ (like Titleist, TM, Callaway, Ping) blades on the launch monitor and on course. Like 690 MB, 712, 714, 716, 718 MBs, is there a difference and how much of one if you have the right shaft? Thanks for the great videos!

Bought the Strata (off-brand Callaway) iron set with a really nice bag for 150. Figured I’d play for a year and see if I progress at the sport then buy nice clubs. At least I’d have the bag. But nope still going strong with the beginner set. Just now after two and a half years getting to the part of my game that will require the next set, ie fitted to me

Hi Rick - you da man! Yes i have bought and continue to buy second hand drivers. I seem to gravitate to Taylormade products so i currently have an R5 Dual D Type, R7 Quad and R1 Black. I get them at a fraction of the original price from eBay, Taylormade hates me :), and they are usually in good condition. However, my favorite club off the tee and fairway is the Adams Super LS.

When I first got back into golf after about a 12 year break I bought that bb alpha. Absolutely loved the feel and distance from that. When I eventually bought my new bb epic sub zero it was because of the experience of the alpha that I looked Calloway first and ended up picking the sub zero over the regular epic

My first set of clubs were fitted... Ping Rapture driver & irons. For years after I always bought 2nd hand when I fancied a change, never spending more than £300 on irons or £150 on a driver... until now - fitted for 716 AP2 & 917D2 10.5° which I bought new, 9yrs after I first started

True. I've just bought a brand new (still in wrapper) 2016 TM M1 with Aldila Tour Green shaft upgrade, grip of my choice including shipping for £189 from Ebay, smooth transaction from a PGA Pro seller. Less than half price for a brand new Club that is the same as the 2017 model? I'll take it!! Now on the hunt for a Callaway Apex hybrid LH to start rebuilding my bag.

I'm a golfer on a budget. I got into golf when I was in college working 2 jobs to cover rent and groceries. As a result I have always played second hand clubs. I was able to replace clubs I had been given when I was 13 and build a complete set for about $500 over the course of about 8 months. The money I saved I was then able to turn into a round of 18 every other week at the local public course as well as a bucket at the driving range once a week, sometimes more sometimes less. This extra time to practice and play has allowed my to bring down my handicap dramatically. I do not think I would've been as successful had I purchased the latest and greatest because I wouldn't've been able to afford all the practice.

My favorite site for finding good quality used clubs would have to be golfavenu.com. They give you pictures of all sides of each club and they always have multiple options for each club ie. right or left hand, different flex, different lofts, as well as the usual "very good" "good" "new" etc. options.

I just bought a set of second hand irons to replace my 15+ year old TiTech starter set. I had never wanted to drop the money for new irons because I do not play often enough to justify it, but after watching your various videos, I decided to go the second hand route. I saved loads of money and am just as happy!

i get all my clubs on a bargain! its just a matter of going to get a new golf club that's a previous years model! you can pick them up for 50 - 60% off! and with that savings with the new adjustable necks going and getting a new shaft for a driver is not a huge undertaking!
Kevin Vieira

I only buy second hand clubs now. People routinely purchase new clubs that are not suited for them and then give up on clubs when they can't hit them or they don't magically cure their game.

5-6 months after their release I picked up a set of Nike Vapor Pro combo irons 4-PW,AW with DG Pro stiff shafts for $500 CDN (£300) (€338) from someone who purchased them and said "He couldn't hit them and was going to buy the Vapor Fly Pros instead".

I just picked up a Callaway Great Big Bertha Epic Subzero 9 degree for $200 CDN (£119) (€135) off another person on Kijiji. Then I picked up a Fujikura Speeder 665 Evolution II Tour Spec and Aldilia Rogue I/O from Callaway pre-owned for $222 CDN (£133) (€150).

Now I'm just waiting for someone to figure out they can't hit an Epic 3 wood or Titleist 917 F2/F3 so I can pick that up for less than half retail. Until then I'll continue hitting my Adams Tight Lies Ti 3 and 5 woods that were brand new and paid nothing for 2 years ago. $90 CDN (£53) (€60) each.

These are all cash purchases. No tax. Think about that for a second. Top of the line forged irons, one of the best and most advanced drivers on the market and really good woods for less than some people pay for their irons new.

Rick Shiels Golf in my bag I don’t have a single club bought from new. I’m very much a (mink) budget golfer. Apart from my driver I like my clubs. Only been golfing for about 5 years and currently off 6. Switched from a full set of regulars to the below which are all stiff. I just wanted to try stiff shafts before thinking about spending hundreds on brand new clubs.
Cleveland hi bore driver. 9.5 degrees
Mizuno f60 3 wood
Snake eyes 600c 2 iron

I recently got a Titleist 917D2 head really cheap on eBay because it had Some surface imperfections on the sole. It helps that I’m left handed sometimes, less bidders to compete against. $150, and it is just a tremendous club head. Carrying it 275+ and straight! Who cares about scratches you can’t see when you are at address?
Michael Pare

Rick, first let me say how much I appreciate your videos. They’re very informative, enjoyable and helpful. As for the topic at hand, I have played golf, with varying rates of success, for more than 55 years. In all that time, I have never purchased a brand new driver. They’ve all been used, including the demos that I’ve acquired. So long as the drivers suited my swing, they were great. The key is that they must be suited to your swing. If they’re not, then no driver, new or used, will be of benefit. Spending the savings on lessons would improve most golfers’ swings quickly, if they were willing to work on a swing change. That’s the problem, though. Most golfers that I have known would rather spend money on new clubs hoping to discover an instant, magic fix than to buy a suitable used club and then work on a swing change under the guidance of a professional.

My entire bag is second hand/used. I bought the clubs from a friend who had, quite hilariously, literally forgot about them (even though he is an active player). Titleist 913 d2 driver, Titleist 710 ap1 irons, two putters, titleist hybrid and golfballs. 220€. They've been perfect for a new player like me.

Rick Shiels Golf Yes! I purchased a Taylor Made R7 TP driver 4 years after it came out for $76 on ebay. The listing stated it was used, but when I received it I couldnt find a blemish anywhere! I still use the driver to this day, refitted with a Harrison X shaft. I love the feel and sound of the R7.

After getting burned paying $400 for the Titleist 983E when they were new (worth $19 just 3 years later on trade), I vowed to NEVER buy brand new clubs again.

I would caution everyone purchasing second-hand to only purchase from an authorized dealer so you can be sure you're not getting counterfeit clubs.

Don't buy from individuals on Ebay, LetGo, or in person. There's just no way to be sure. The individual may not even know they're selling you a counterfeit club.

I love swapping clubs I’m a single digit handicap and just found a Titleist 910d3 for 70.00 USD and couldn’t be happier love the sound and feel. Just have to upgrade a shaft and I can’t see enough of a reason to buy the brand new clubs or anything brand new for that matter unless it’s putter and wedges cause they can be had at a better price then a new driver. I look for consistency and that’s how your going to shoot lower scores something that is consistent.

Great test Rick I'd love to see a persimmon wood test vs new gear. I bought a friend an old Taylormade R7 draw with a stiff shaft for $20 aud for a friend who broke their driver. We played 36 holes stroke play and he only missed one fairway and everything was over 240 yards. I was not happy we both play off 18 and I lost.

I've been playing for about 4 years now starting with my father's hand me downs. As soon I stated to get the hang of driving I went online and found me a slightly used adams blue 10.5 R flex and have been enjoying the heck out of it ever since. After that became more interested in adams and ended up finding 3 used hybrids: adams idea tech v4 2i 3i 4i. Huge fan of these three. Best purchase I have ever made IMO. I thought of hybrids because I couldn't long irons to save my life. Searching for some used irons now. Keep up the good work rick. ..I'm enjoying your reviews very much.
Alex Covington

I've never purchased a new golf club. My current set is an R1 driver with X-stiff Fuji Fuel shaft, RBZ tour 3 wood, TP 2009 Rescue, 5-PW X-Hot Pro's, 52* X-Jaws CC, 56* Scratch DS, 60* Fourteen MT28 V4, 64* X-Jaws, and White Hot XG #7. The only new things in my bag are the shaft in the driver, the grips, and two of the headcovers. I can't fathom having the budget to spend the money on a brand new set of clubs. I adore my clubs and baby them, because I could never even afford a full set of used off-brand irons as a kid. Oh, and the total cost of the driver, 3 wood, hybrid, and iron set, was about 300 dollars. Finding deals becomes a priority when you have a limited budget.

Last year was my first year playing golf after about 7 years off so didnt want to go mad a blow my bank just incase I didnt stick at it. Obviously I'm now addicted again!! Even though Ive decided to play regularly again, I really dont see the need to spend £££ when unnecessary. Ive tried the newer kit and to be honest for my level of golf (14) it really didnt make enough difference to warrant to dollars.

On the subject of drivers, why would your mid-high handicapper spend £400-£500 when it really isn't going to improve your game. You can get an XR 16 for £199, Cobra F6 for £179 and the Ping G30 for £229 all brand new at AG. And if you need to pay it off over 6 months at 0% interest. Spend the rest on lessons!!!!

Over the years, I have bought a few seconds hand drivers ( just out of curiosities and wanting to try different clubs) and as they were so dirt cheap.
I Never came a crossed with a bad driver and they always surprised me how good they are.
BUT, do avoid second hand clubs with composite heads. They are fragile and I have cracked three of them. One was due to my negligence but two others were just not as tough as the all metal club heads.

I bought my 3 wood, 5 wood, and hybrid 2nd hand...(the hybrid and 3 wood were open box, actually) and I saved a lot of cash. My driver was a demo club..I paid 150 for a 350 dollar driver. And my irons were 2 yrs old but still in the box. In the end, I spent exactly 1100 dollars on a Covert 2.0 driver, 3w, 3hybrid. ,4 - pw Covert x irons, 50 and 56-degree Cleveland tour action wedges. You gotta just love Black Friday in the U.S.

Taylormade have a used club site I got two hybrids and a 3 wood sldr's for 150 quid. They were less than a year old and looked like new. Only thing I didn't realise was the import duty of an extra 30 quid but still a bargain. They rate the clubs and their rating was very accurate.

Tested a few new drivers, and Well they felt good.
But for third and some a fourth of the price i ended up with a Wilson FG tour driver, stiff , adjustable 8.5-11.5 loft.
Works great, might loose little distance.

3wood Ping G30, demo club.
Cobra forged One, Golfbidder, 600£ , excellent condition, costs 1100£ new in sweden.
Have not money to buy a good putter yet, so i bought a crappy one for 20£, as my savings building up.

I've only used second hand clubs. I started golfing 3 years ago and had a titleist 910 driver. This summer I hit my longest drive with the club for a total of 314 yards. I work at a golf course and found a ping i25 head in amazing condition in the trash. I put a stock ping shaft in it for 36 dollars and went on to break my long drive with it hitting a 326 yard drive. It's definitely worth more to improve your swing

I picked up a Cobra ZL last year for 70 GBP and am now doing a repaint due to the previous owners skyballs. It’s looking sharp and I hit balls as far as you do with any of your tested drivers. I’m putting the money I saved into more practice on the range so I can learn to master the club. I think most people buy new clubs far to often, resulting in them never realy learning how to use the club.

Cam Channell

I agree with this 100%!! I bought my entire set used by piecing it together. I shopped carefully and found clubs in really great shape, some of them looked pretty much brand new. I bought the wedges individually (P, A, S, L). The irons in a set (4-9). And the rest individually. A 3 wood, 4 hybrid and a driver. And they all match. Taylormade Rocketballz. My driver was $85 and in great shape. I put the entire set together (with a matching Taylormade bag) for just over $500. I recently went and tested all the latest against my driver. The new PING, Calloway, Taylormade, etc . . . I consistently hit my Rocketballz just as far and consistent as the brand new $400+ drivers. So saving the money and putting it into lessons is very much a smart move, especially since I am very much an average golfer. Thanks for putting this video together Rick!! Keep up the great content!!

Thanks for the great information (as usual) It is amazing when the manufacturers release the new drivers every year announcing NEW & IMPROVED. Makes you wonder what you paid $500 for last year....old & mediocre???? Have never bought a second hand driver but I will now. You can always resell it yourself and recoup your $100 if it doesn't workout...right? Thanks for all you do.

To expand on this.  I was custom fit for a very popular driver this year that cost me over $400.  I was seduced by the fact that I was picking up a couple extra yards, but after making the switch, I found my new driver wasn't the best club for me to tackle actual golf shots on a golf course.  I now miss my old driver and will likely try to find one on eBay.  Lesson learned.  No matter how cool the new $400 driver is, if it doesn't make you a better golfer, don't buy it.

The drivers over the past 5 yrs are all good. You just have to know which type of weighting works for you. Drivers that are weighted closer to the front like Taylormade and Callaway or those weighted towards the back like Ping and Titeist and knowing what lofts work best for those types of weighting.

A week of lessons with a golf instructor was the best golf investment I ever made. Now, I go back twice a year for 4 to 5 days to fine tune my game and my playing partners are speechless when I hit a great drive 250 straight down the middle or consistently hit my irons.The game of golf is not about the brand of clubs you show up with. You can't buy the game. You can, however, buy a quality set of clubs that will meet your needs for years to come and make the sport a little bit easier. I always recommend to my friends buy at least 2 yrs old used clubs. If you buy a cheaper boxed set, the driver and 3 woods usually are made up of cheaply made graphite shafts or titanium "composite " heads that dent or fly off within the first year. Avoid first tee embarrassment and save hundreds of dollars by buying used from a reputable company such as Callaway pre-owned or 2nd Swing Golf.

I would like to know if old irons (4 or 5 years old) really do lose backspin due to ageing. This would help answer the question if I should get new clubs due to grooves being worn down. If both blades are clean (old vs new) how big of difference in backspin is there. Should you get a set of new irons after the 4 or 5 year mark? Thanks Rick

Virtually all club golfers would do better spending money having their grips replaced, lie & loft set up for them plus taking lessons from a "Good" teaching pro rather than spending daft money on new clubs. Some of the prices are now barking & we will see changing of equipment slowing down. This might not be a bad thing for the club pro as I suspect the vast amount of equipment is purchased from Large retailers. An opportunity will exist to build up their teaching clientele IF they can promote themselves & their services.

In general i dont think Golf Technology makes a lot of difference. The physics behind it just dont allow for huge improvements. Not to mention the regulations of the Golf Clubs.

I would like to also mention an area that perhaps you might be interested in reviewing would be some of the places that make the clone clubs such as Diamond tour golf. I purchased a 5 hybrid from them that is supposed to be like the Callaway xr hot hybrid I believe. It is one of the most amazing clubs in my bag. I call it the most reliable club in my bag. I bought it about 4 years ago. Also bought a driver cloned after the Ping G driver. That has turned out well too. Straightened out my drives very nicely. I was using a Callaway Hyper X at the time with mixed results and the Diamond tour Ping G clone put me on track and did it for about 67 dollars brand new. :) I also have a 9 Wood and 7 Wood that are Ping clones from them as well. Absolutely love them. This is an area that is almost never reviewed but I think is worth getting a look at. Cheers Rick. Spider Dubiel :)

Started playing 4 years ago with second hand ping g25. After 2 years, lowered my hc to 15 and decided i needed new clubs; bought a set of brand new more blade type clubs and ended up going back to my old second hand g25; selling the new ones after a month for less than half the price. So I’m sure you can get great deals for 2nd hand clubs; and have also been the idiot throwing money away trying to look smarter while actually performing worse.

I've found the current generation of drivers have more pleasing acoustics and feel. I've not tried every driver but I've given a fair amount of the last 3 years of clubs a smack. Performance wise... with the exception of my upgrade from a second hand SLDR S to a 2016 M2... I haven't experience much if any improvement in distance or accuracy. I have enjoyed the Epic and considered picking one up. I'm still keen on my M2. Cheers Rick. As always...great video!

In 2015 Akers discount golf bought every Anser wood from ping and I bought the same driver i got fitted for for $129. Just changed to the Mizuno JPX900 and got it for $250 new as a left over.

I fell in love with that driver. But, since I had not played for a while(too busy with tennis), I also bought a used R15(almost new) for about $150.00(can.) Now, i can switch shafts and experiment with both. Thanks again for your generous comments.

I think you can go even lower than £100. I've never spent more than £50 on any wood (fairway woods included)... ALL 2nd hand... and all absolutely fine.
I was fitted for a G30 driver when it came out but it added nothing new to my swing so didn't buy it... also a G400 stretch... ditto.
So my bag and shed is stocked with old 2nd hand woods like Cleveland launchers, Cleveland Classic 290, Ping G5 and K15 and Snake Eyes fire forged. ALL just as good I think as far more expensive woods...

Lessons, lessons, lessons. There is a psychological component which can't be ignored when buying the shiny, new clubs. It excites people and perhaps gives them confidence, which yields positive results on the course. Additionally new clubs can promote "confirmation bias" meaning the golfer will more easily ignore poor shots and overly exalt good shots.

In my opinion though, there is no substitute for lessons and practice. A well delivered club head will always perform better than a poorly delivered club head.

I'd love to see a video on the potential for retro fitting. So, if I pick up a set of forged irons on golfbidder, how close to my spec can I reasonably expect to get them? I've been told in the past that it's easy to bend forged clubs - is that true? How easily can shafts be extended or shortened? As a double digit capper, should I be wary of any shaft that has Pro in the name???
A few commenters have already asked about wear and tear on irons. Would I still get performance out of clubs with blacked out sweet spots? How bad is pitting on the shafts?

Anyway, thanks for these videos. They have a lot more real world meaning for most of us that epic reviews

Immediately after your Ping 5-year test I bought a Ping G20 (it did great in your test) for $99 online (new head cover included).  It had a slight buff on the sole so must have hit a few balls, but otherwise looked brand new.  Great addition to my bag.  Thanks for that test!

After doing some research you can find tons of newer drivers out there at around $100-$130. Also, if you like the shaft you have you can order just the driver head itself (from a newer model) at a very discounted price.

Rick I have Taylormade r7 460c driver for last 12 years & still performing,last year thought might be better with modern technology get new driver went test a few & brought old driver with me & honestly there was no difference in distances with new drivers compared to R7, so saved €400 by still playing R7....think I paid €400 original for it but definitely worth the price 12 years on.

Hi Rick. My 13yr old son plays golf and had out grown his woods. Instead of buying him new ones I gave him my old ping G5 3 wood and 5 wood. After some practice and a few games he absolutely loves them. I’ve played with him and he hits them great. So yes I think it’s a good idea to use older clubs. Rather. Than expensive new ones especially for juniors as they grow all the time.

Hi Rick. Another great review. After struggling to find fairway woods that suited me (Ping, Taylormade, Adams, Titleist) I stumbled on £20 and £25 2008 Callaway BB 5 wood and 3 wood. Easy to hit, great distance and very manoeuvrable. Why pay more? I’d prefer to spend money (if on clubs) on good wedges and a putter that works. Still looking for the latter!

I can honestly say I've never bought a new club. I'm lucky to be able to afford golf at all. I normally buy on eBay thru Globalgolf and 3balls. Balls are the same, Lostgolfballs.com and drmulligans.com.
With that said, starting with the 2018 season, I'll buy wedges new every season now that I have learned to spin the ball. Turning bogeys into pars and pars into birdies is definitely worth the price of new wedges every year.

I am missing not only your yearly £500 rounds of used clubs but way more tests of used clubs for the majority or huge part of Golf fans who don't want or don't can afford new clubs to play Golf properly. Save us and the world some ressources and invest in used clubs :-) it has way more style and character, if you ask me.

I bought my woods, my driver and my wedges second-hand via ebay or second-hand-Golf club companies. What should be wrong playing with Nike clubs Tiger and Rory played a couple years ago and Nike decided discontinuing the production of clubs for example?
Dante Martin
Dante Martin - 3 years ago
I sometimes play a round with just a 7 iron and a putter. It makes you think about the shots you're making more. More creativity. And as a bonus, on the harder courses, no lost balls due to wayward driver shots. My score ended up about the same as well. It just goes to show, that all special clubs etc, even though they "can" help your game, and with enough practice will help sometimes. That simple can just work out. 
I would love to see Pete and yourself do this for 9 holes as a vlog. Its something a bit different.

Slow news day much? Is it new news that the golf industry is a con with new product (same as other industries)? Only fools believe different. I’ve been a cat 1 player for ever basically, rarely had lessons and never been fitted. What would improve my game is more time spent on it. ....but life gets in the way. Money spent on lessons is a waste too as lots of bad pros out there, unless you’re doing something really wrong it won’t help. The fundamental truth is that people in general have different qualities and abilities and no matter what you do .... nothing will change that. If your hand eye co-ordination is poor......lessons wont help you materially. If you lack the physical strength to turn.....lessons won’t help you. Pros and the industry sell an unrealistic dream..... life isn’t fair, it was never meant to be.

I was custom fit for my driver for the first time this year and it has been amazing. My only worry with buying off the shelf is most people won’t have access to the figures you have. Shops should allow people to test older clubs on simulators to find out numbers. No Good just hitting on a range as you are guessing how far.

Good points Eric but you will have to pay postage each way if you return it. That's £14 ($18) although some people might think it's worth paying to try the club on a course rather than a range or an indoor fitting centre.

We hear a lot about spin rates on wedges and the differences between New and wedges which have been used for say a year.... can you test how much of a difference this really is and whether we should be updating wedges say every 12 months or depending how often we play... I play twice a week and I’ve not had fresh wedded since April 2016.... would I benefit enough from new wedges to benefit from spending say 2-3 hundred on some fresh ones?? Cheers

Yes I bought a taylormade sldr in x stiff fine at first then had the chance for a fitting, numbers suggesting a stiff shaft. Price of new stiff shaft £200. So yes I got a cheaper club but ultimately cost me as much. Moral have a fitting lesson first then try to get one as close to that fitting as possible.

Would the results be different when tested by a high handicapper? I’m really curious about that. You mentioned you do adept to a new club easier because you do a lot of testing. So how about someone that doesn’t?
I do believe newer doesn’t have to mean better. I have a 20 year old 5-wood that still delivers.

I bought a second hand driver a couple of years ago when I took up golf, since my pro said that I would need a completely different spec a couple of years down the line. He was right, I’m now looking at getting a stiffer shaft and lower loft. I‘m getting regular lessons and am still improving my swing, so will probably get another secondhand one for now until I feel my swing is not changing all the time
Michael Rolton

Thanks, Rick, I have enjoyed using second-hand clubs for years. For example, I picked up a 2016 M2 driver for just over £100 when the new M2 came out. How good is it? Well, Mr Finch has recently moved back to a 2016 M2, so wheat more can I say.

Hi rick, great test and I've still got my R11 I got custom fitted years ago which does a pretty good job for me, but I'm in the boat of coming back to golf and looking at newer clubs. The question I'd love for you to answer is would I be better off changing up my mizuno mp38's for something a little newer or would I be better off finding a little more help in the 3,4 and possibly 5 irons with the likes of a cavity back or the rescues? I'm a 6 handicapper and have played blades for well over 10 years now. Have newer clubs (blades) improved forgiveness at all too? Would love to know your thoughts

What an interesting video.  I've been playing 3 years, got down to 13 and until this year my entire set cost me around £100 (had new wedges this year - which has made a huge difference), with my driver being a £30 Taylormade R5, which I carry 220 - 250 dependent on time of year, and am normally straight(ish).

I've found that working on the correct gapping is hugely important, and gradually investing into new but the year before models is working, and practicing on the course as much as I can.  

I've only had 1 lesson to iron out a fault, but this said I am sitting down with my club pro this week to look at a plan to work on over the winter with an aim to get to single figures in 2018.

Bag Make Up - Taylormade R5 Driver (£30), Taylormade Burner 3 wood (£22), Taylormade dual hybrid 19 degree (£22), Callaway RAZR X HL 5 iron - PW (£30 for set), Cleveland RTX3 50, 54, 60 Wedges (new), Cleveland CG16 64 degree wedge (free), Wilson Blackjack putter (part of an old set - free)

Rick. I’d love to see some testing on this over multiple days. Let’s say a test of 10 balls on each driver, each day for a week. I know you’re a very consistent golfer and striker of the ball, but would be really interesting to see day to day swing differences, averaged over a week and summarised in ball data. For inconsistent golfers like myself, it would be useful to see what kind of variances in performance you see on different days with the same 4 clubs.

2 points. First, go get fitted for woods and irons (free a lot of times), then go and find used clubs that match your fit. You can find exact loft lie and length on a lot of sites, and you can always go take a test drive on different models and brands to see what fits your eye and feel. Then just wait a couple of months and what was new is now old and available at deep discount. Rick, my second point, is that you need to have Rob or some other golfer with a 85-95 swingspeed do this test. Most of us can’t crank out a 110+ swing speed. Be nice to see what a used G20 driver in R flex does at 90mph swing speed. Keep up the good work Rick!
Gareth Thomas

I enjoy your channel immensely, but any club in the hands of a Pro like you is not a fair comparison, its the club in the hands of "average" golfers that is more relevant to most of us.
I would, and I think most golfers would find reviews and comparisons more beneficial in the hands of slower swing speeds. #bringbackdobby

Absolutely agree Rick, us average recreational golfers are far better off concentrating on coaching and practice rather than pending small fortunes on new clubs every year but the manufacturers do an exceptional job of luring us into buying new gear with clever marketing.........and it is very nice to have shiny new clubs if you can afford them. The most unfortunate aspect of all of this is equipment snobbery. It should be about the best fit for you rather than the most expensive clubs being the best buy.

With the new shaft, I was able to get almost the same numbers that i was producing with the epic. With all of the money I saved, I was able to buy an aeroburner hybrid, a used callaway 3 wood, and the shaft for less than I would have spent on just the epic

My axiom on golf equipment is that the ball does not know the cost of the club striking it and the club does not know the cost of the ball it is striking. I recently bought a set of Ping G30 irons which were on "closeout" from the factory. I had tested Mizuno, Titelist, and Ping and settled on the Ping because I liked the way they felt and the strike I achieved. I saved about $400-500 by buying a model of club that is 2 years old. They were ordered for me from the factory after I was custom fit. The other club I liked was the Titelist AP3 and when that is on "closeout" in three years, I might consider trading to it. I once played a Taylor Made driver that I bought on Ebay for $9.99 (plus $10.00 freight) for several years and liked it better than any of the high tech newer models. There are many great older clubs that can save a golfer money. Use the savings for lessons and green fees.

I currently play a Taylormade R9 superdeep in 8.5deg, x flex shaft. Obviously this club is old now, and every new great driver that comes out, I at least test to see if there are benefits and I haven't found any that give me some significant improvement that justifies the cost. I have also bought an R15 and M1 used so I can get more play out of them hoping to see better results but they are in my garage while the R9 is still in my bag.

I once got a great used Scotty Cameron putter for £120 but when my bag fell over it snapped and turned out to be a fake-crap casting gave it away. So buyer beware. That said I have had good used golf clubs but believe the money I have spent on lessons has been better value.

I personally buy most of my clubs gently used and I am a 6 handicap. I have been told by more than one golf professional that amateur golfers should buy used clubs because they often do not benefit from spending $1000+ dollars on clubs that ultimately do not lower their scores. That being said, I stress the term GENTLY USED; no one wants to order a used club that has a ball mark that has worn away the grooves.

I am a big fan of second hand clubs. Having said that.... you didn’t mention that the average golfer hits the ball everywhere BUT in the sweet spot with their driver so they should concerned mostly about a drivers forgiveness on off centered strikes. Perhaps these particular drivers are “forgiving” but based on your avg smash factor I would suggest that the sweet spots on these drivers are pretty small.

Rick, I honestly see no harm with a second hand driver or other second hand clubs for that manner. Granted there is an advantage to being fitted to a new one but huge savings exist for someone with a keen eye for what works for them in the used market. I did pick up some Adams hybrids about 4 years ago that have worked well. Since replaced them with Callaway recently. My big catch recently was a very slightly used Callaway XR 16 Driver which I absolutely love. I picked that up for about 149 dollars. Then I turned around had a grip suited for me put on it and trimmed the shaft just a tad for my height . The thing is an absolute cannon. I love being able to adjust it as well. Closed the face a bit and increased the loft. Best driver I have ever used. SO THE POINT IS, I THINK YOU CAN BUY A USED DRIVER OR CLUB AND THEN TAYLOR IT FOR YOURSELF . QUITE POSSIBLE. :) Best regards, SPIDER DUBIEL

Best driver I have ever hit is my current Titleist 909 D3. Looked practically new when I got for $99 it and still does. I just love the compact head and heavy-ish shaft. It goes as far as any newer driver I have tried. I average about 285 yards with it which is long for me. And yes, it is deadly accurate. Just a note to others who might try it. The stock Titleist/Voodoo shaft plays a little soft, so if you normally use S flex, you might try X instead.

excellent video. I am a 66 year old high handicapper who has only just taken up golf again after a 15 year absence (used to have a better handicap). My question is about shafts.

MrP 101
MrP 101 - 3 years ago
thanks Joshua, it's on my radar to get fitted. First objective is to hit things a little more consistently (at the moment I hit some proper golf shots, some rubbish). After that the next thing on my road plan is lessons (been many years since I last had lessons). Once I have a consistent strike my intention is to get fitted. I have the feeling that unless I can hit the ball with a consistent strike fitting is pretty difficult. I may have it all wrong, what do you think.
Joshua Court
Joshua Court - 3 years ago
I'm not Rick, but I've been around long enough to hear him say this a lot: If you are going to invest in a new club, get fitted. Just go to a golf shop and if you are looking at purchasing clubs they should be willing to let you hit a few shots and then they will be able to recommend something based off of your swing and your numbers.

Every club in my bag is second hand except my driver which I bought when the price dropped to $149 with a 15% coupon. My irons were second hand and in near perfect condition except for the 7 iron had a nearly destroyed grip. It looked like the previous owner only used the 7 iron and had a death grip when he used it. My best scores were an Adams 60° wedge and an Odyssey #6 putter I found at a local Goodwill for $2.99 a piece. The putter still had the wrap on the grip and the only blemish was a sharpie mark on the face. I want a GBB Epic but I know I will never pay $400 for a driver. Patience is key.

Second hand clubs.
Purchased a Nearly new driver, a brand new 3 wood and a good second hand 5 wood for £120.00.
Checked the retail prices against cost and have saved £330.00. After testing clubs found they performed as good as anything i have used, and I’ve had a lot of clubs from all of the well known manufacturers.
As i sell second hand and new clubs i have found this year that the savings to be made are huge! As you would expect but the difference being clubs that were introduced in March this year priced at £549 sold 3 months later for around £250(Clubs sold are we’ll known manufacturers). All the clubs that we sold were like new with only a few round under their belts.
Keep up the good work.

Thank you Rick for the very interesting study. I am a 66 year old retired golfer with a slow swing speed.

No on ever test second line drivers like Acer or PowerPlay, it would be interesting to see how these clubs compare to the used $100 clubs, since they cost around $100 - $150, that would make an interesting comparison.

Great video Rick! I think it’s important for these kind of “reality-check” videos to be made. Hopefully people new to golf see this video and save themselves some massive $$ before buying new clubs. I think anyone who’s played golf for at least a year or more knows that clubs (as long as they’re not some bootleg knockoff) matter very little compared to skill level.

I do spoil myself w/ shiny new clubs from time to time but I️ don’t do it thinking that the clubs will equate to improvements in my game. It’s really mostly just to enjoy the feeling of having something new & desirable.

That being said, I also take advantage of golf club bargains whenever possible. I’ve bought all my wedges off sales for demo clubs and paid a fraction of the full retail. (e.g. $45 for SM5 Vokeys when the SM6’s were due to be released). Compared to other clubs like drivers, the demo wedges at most stores are hardly ever hit so you can get 3 “like-new” premium wedges for the price of a single brand new wedge.

I'm always telling my friends don't let the golf market pick your clubs, let your golf swing pick them for you. I'm consistently changing putters, drivers, and fairway woods. Not because there not working, but because I know like my swing I'm never doing the same thing over and over. So shy should I expect my clubs to perform to my unperfected golf swing. Now I don't mean I switch every round, or even every month. But if something doesn't feel perfect I'm not scared to try something different, especially something that has been in my golf bag before, and I at one time have had confidence with. You always hear someone say "I wish I still had those irons, or I wish I didn't give that driver away" well I don't, if I truly believe it's time to bump something out of the bag I do so, but I keep the older stuff around.

I bought a Titleist d910 D2 for£50. I'd never buy new as the second hand clubs were good enough for pros 3-5years ago or more so they will be more than good enough for me. I couldn't afford£400 for a driver and don't think I need to.
You should do a similar video for old irons. I'm interested to know if a fitted new set would be worth it against a roughly fitted(right type shaft and lie(ping etc) secondhand for under£200 will be just as good. For a 20+ handicap especially
Thanks for these videos. Your driver comparisons prove the new clubs are mostly sales inducing not lengthening distance.

I think a strategy for any novice golfer should be to acquire good quality used woods/irons, and spend the difference on fitted wedges/putter and lessons. you're going to use those clubs WAY more at any level of golf so investing in your short game should be the priority. After that, if you want to get into new gear... chances are you will have the skill and the desire to justify it.

Hi Rick, I have a few suggestions for you. I'd like to see a comparison video of mainstream wedges like your Callaways, Titleist and Mizuno going up against some smaller companies such as Edel, Miura or Bombtech seeing if its all marketing hype or if there's some truth using these smaller companies. Both on GC Quad and on course would be great. Another suggestion is an on course comparison of a mid-handicap golfer like Mr. Potter using a fitted set of clubs vs. a box set. Everyone always says there's an advantage looking at numbers on GC Quad, but does it make a difference where it matters on course? And lastly seeing Rob Potter with a set of matched 7 irons with the same shafts,lie and loft with the only difference being the grip size to see if there's really a difference in ball flight. Thanks and keep the videos coming.

I have just returned to golf after 40 years and brought all my clubs at car boots the best ones are Taylor Made driver for £10 R580 XD, yes know its illegal in competition,
and a Burner 5-7 with bubble shaft for £4 with other clubs.At my age do I need to spend more , on lessons may be , thanks for the vids. Maybe that could be your next challenge
car boot challenge.

Brought a second hand M2 2016 driver for £150 so saved so much in comparison to a brand new one off the shelf and it works for me exactly the same as a brand new one would and there is no fear of me scratching it or damaging it in anyway because there are already a few marks there

It would be interesting to know just how far back you need to go until you see a difference in club performance.
Also it woukd be interesting to test older golf balls to see the difference in performance for example the difference between a titleist prov1 from 2017 and say a 2010

I always buy second hand golf gear. The store I used is great, they have a gc2 and I try the club's out to see if they suit me. I tinker slot and the store will offer a great deal of the club's are not for me and I can trade back in. Currently playing a 2016 M1 I bout for £160 and had it really shafted to suit my game in store.

Rick you have done an amazing job regarding testing and what's best for us amateurs. I'm a firm believer that only the really elite tour pro can benefit with the latest and greatest as you mention. I do budget golf and things like this video and your second hand challenge you did with Pete a while back show the older clubs can still perform. Great job as usual Cheers

Brilliant vid Rick! My whole bag is made up of 2nd hand clubs which has saved me ££’s which has been spent on lessons...much needed lessons!
I got the below;
Titleist 913 D3 - £120
Titleist 915 F (15 degrees) -‭ £95
Titleist 915 H (19 degree) - £90
Titleist 710 AP2 4-PW - £ 150 complete set
Titleist SM5/6 wedges 52/56/60 around 60-75 each club
Scotty Cameron Newport 2.5 £130

Massive, massive saving over new! Would struggle to get a new set of irons for less than this set!
All clubs were in amazing condition considering the prices!
I can’t see that spending the extra on new would be of any benefit over using that same money on lessons/playing/practice

getting fitter and more flexible is more important than new gear i played the same clubs for 5 plus years and still shot 3 to 4 over par on average, my new equipment made very little difference until i upped my stretching and flexing my body that made me play more relaxed and confident i even broke par several times even when i used my 5 year old clubs . lessons are great as well get better so the new clubs can elevate your game

Great Video with a compelling question! Please recreate this but with iron sets for under £100... I have a set of Taylormade T320 irons (3-Pw) from 2004 and I'm debating weather or not to shell out £500 for a new set of irons in the hope for more distance but with the same lofts (not cheating like the M2 branding a 6 iron as 7 etc...). A video like that would be of huge help before the new year!

100% on the sub 100 driver, rest in lessons. I'm on my 3rd lesson and a lot of practice, I beat someone who used to be a 12 handicap round an 18 hole par 54 course.. Ok furthest hole is only 130 yards but still beat him. Lessons all the way! Then look at the elite gear after. I use G30's.

John Anderson

In my opinion if someone picks a driver off the shelf, have it cut down a half inch and you will hit it further and straighter because you're hitting the center of the clubface far more often. Best thing I ever did!

very nice Rick, I still use a razr x black 5 wood, cus i know where its gona go. the old irons still work great, I think wedges are obviously the ones to change first due to needing good grooves for spin. Drivers...only change once u can actually see substantial difference advantage, i always take my gamer to the fitting to see if the new 400pounders outperform it, if it doesnt, i wont buy it. ure absolutely right in saying its better to spend the money on lessons and practice. Thanks for a great video.
Peter Gilcoine
Peter Gilcoine - 3 years ago
Nice video Rick! Before this year, I just bought older model clubs off the discount rack. I have been fitted for a driver (17 M2), Wedges (RTX-3), & putter (Sigma G Anser). Those three fitting have changed my game by giving me confidence and knowing the specs are right even if they were a pretty penny. I have Z-745 irons in S300 shaft that I bought for $250 and recently went to compare them with newer irons. The fitter just recommended me flattening my lie and strengthening my loft a degree and it has made a world of difference. The point to all this is I went to get fit for my clubs. You can certainly buy cheaper clubs and see if a fitter can help you tweak them for much less money and have proper clubs suited to your own swing. The new tech is great, but 99% of the time it comes down to your own golf swing and ability on how you play. In one year I have gone from a 20 handicap to a 12 with these fittings. I only play once or twice a month, but love the game and will one day play more often (when the kids leave the nest lol)

I wish you would have addressed the issue of consistency per driver. Distance is important but as we all know scoring requires correctly applied distance. Also, would love to see this review type applied to all the other types of clubs as well. Wouldn't be surprised if that was already your thinking.
