Buying Used Golf Clubs

By Golf Guy

Used Golf Clubs - If you're a new golfer or just someone who is looking to save some money, buying used clubs can really save you a bundle. With so many places to my buy used clubs, you can sometimes find real good name brand clubs at a fraction of what they cost new.

When purchasing pre-owned clubs, you will want to look at the club head to make sure that there is no spot worn right in the center of the head where the ball strikes the club. If there is, the club has been used a lot and the worn club face will not contact the ball as well. You want to see some grooves with defined edges.

Check the shafts of the clubs for worn areas or indentations. Look down the shaft and make sure it has not been bent or twisted. You can test the torque by twisting the grip and the head in opposite directions. If you meet very little resistance while twisting, then it is a sign of shaft weakness and should be avoided.

When you select a used club, you need to decide between steel or graphite. Graphite clubs tend to be lighter than steel and it really depends on your style of play. You also might want to re-grip the used golf clubs . You can re-grip them yourself for 10 to 15 bucks per club.

Clubs made from alloy such as aluminum are more susceptible to wear and tear than those made from metal. Depending on your budget, you might want to stay with the metal types to assure you're getting a used club that has not been worn down too much.
