  • Best-value affordable beginner irons?

    Hello fellow nuts! I'm just getting back into golf but have never really had a full set of irons. Been swinging with a mixed bag for a while and I really want to get into a consistent swing with a matching set. Are there any suggestions for a good affordable beginner set? ($150-250 range).

    Also, i'm a lefty and have really been struggling to find used clubs on kijiji/the classifieds. Any other secret places to look?

    thanks in advance!

        I'd get a used set of Eye2s vs new beginner clubs: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/PING-EYE-2-P...AAAOSwJ6JdAS2S

        IMO they are still great clubs (I just put my 30+ year old BeCu Eye2s back in the bag this year) and you can use them even as you get better.

        FYI the lofts are much weaker than current irons e.g. my PW is 50.5 vs current PW ~46, but it won't make any difference as the number on the iron is just that.

          A used set of Ping G-series irons can usually be had for $150 - $250 and are great options for a beginner. There wasn't much change from the G2 to the G20 line. The G25s were probably the best regarded before the newest sets. The i-series were slightly less forgiving, but also a good option (i5 through i25). My first real set once I got serious about golf was a set of Ping G2, 3HL through P, that I bought used, played for 7 years and would still be playing if I hadn't got a great deal on a nice set of Mizunos.

          Other choices would be Callaway X-series/Big Bertha, Mizuno MX/JPX, Taylormade M2. There are some nice component clubs out there (Wishon, Maltby), but they would be harder to find in your price range.

              2nd on the Wilson suggestion!
              ...or checkout Sportsyard this weekend - always good stuff at great pricing - but not the selection that GT would have of course
              Every great idea starts out as a blasphemy

                I feel for you lefties.
                Nothing in Global's barrel in that price range

                  Globalgolf.ca is a good start but I suggest checking out your local Craigslist as well. Ping Eye 2s is a great choice for a beginner set but also consider the Tommy Armour 845 Silver Scots as well. They are tour proven and can be had for a song (I got a 1-SW set for $100 CAD). Most 3-PW sets are under $100. Also consider the Callaway Bertha Clubs from the 90s. They are also tour proven (Monty wont a boat load of tournaments with them) with 3-PW sets usually going for under $200 and they are some of the most forgiving clubs ever made by them.

                    Just told my cobra f6 set, but those are amazing irons, let alone for beginners. Keep your lookout for cobra irons, they are of great value.

                        But look them up on Ebay first. They seem to discount their web prices. I saved $20 on a set of irons with the same $9.99 shipping. I think if you get to $200 the shipping is free.

                          Yes, I've read that too. But I'm having a hard time finding the Global Golf Canadian ebay URL/link...you got one?
                          Thanks.

                              My TM Rac graphite iron set just arrived. As usual "Value" condition was a lark. They are in excellent shape. Big thumbs up again for Global Golf Canada.
