Hey guys, new to the forum and need some assistance picking clubs. I just got back into golf after about 7 year break. I have been playing a used set of Strata Ultimate. I picked up a new driver and 3 wood, Cobra King F7 with XLR8 Pro 61 shaft. The stiff shaft hits way better for me then the Strata driver ever did. My swing speed is around 102MPH. I want to upgrade all my Strata clubs with stiff clubs, but i'm not sure what to get. I want to keep my iron purchase around $350. I am looking at some used sets and not really sure what would work best. I don't track my handicap, but usually shoot around 45-50 on 9 holes.
Hi Chev, and welcome! I suggest you start by figuring out your irons shaft, then look for a nice used set in your price range with that shaft. Go to any shop with a demo cart and a launch monitor, working with a fitter would be a big help. But you'll know it when it feels right, and it may be the shaft more than the head.
If you end up in S300s, you'll have a lot of options, recommend Mizuno MP-H5s or older Titleist AP2s. If it's something slightly lighter, like KBS Tour 120s, look for RocketBladez Tour, JPX-825 Pro, or Srixon Z 745 (...if you really luck out, those are as good as any irons out there). Project X 6.0 might mean something Callaway, like an older X Forged. And don't shy away from trying X100. Finally, I really improved my game with Ping S56s and they're still really solid and affordable.
