These are amazing times to be a golfer. Not only do we have space-age technology at our disposal, molded into shapes to help us do better at our sport, it’s cheaper than ever and there’s an almost constant flow of new club models from every major company. When clubs are tweaked and released as the newest edition in their series, the amazing clubs that came just before them are considered out-modeled by some and replaced, creating a huge market for used golf clubs.
If you’re looking for discount golf clubs, you should seriously consider a preowned golf club set, and here’s why:
Used Golf Clubs Are Affordable
Like used cars, a set of preowned golf clubs represents a significant savings over buying the same set new, even if the wear is very light. After all, something newer and shinier has just hit the market and last year’s clubs are so last year. The truth is that last year’s clubs are still awesome (and probably still available new somewhere), so why not save a ton and play with better gear?
Used Golf Clubs Are Still High Tech
Considering that your current set of clubs were bought when Clinton was still in office, being a season or two behind on technology means you’re not going to miss much. For many players and many clubs, that’s true regardless of how frequently they upgrade. The fact of the matter is that clubs are updated in baby steps, so being a year or two behind only means you’re saving a bundle because you can buy your next golf set gently used.
Used Golf Clubs Are Tried and Tested
Your used golf clubs were played before — that’s a good thing. Like everything else in life, sometimes clubs have problems straight out of the box. But when someone has played them a little, they figure out where the problems are and work them out. You won’t have to worry about inconveniences like loose club heads or slipping grips because the prior owner has already fixed these issues in order to play with their clubs.
Used Golf Clubs Are Carefully Assessed for Condition
When a reputable pro shop or club retailer takes in a set of used clubs, they check them carefully, from grip to head, in order to assess their condition accurately. This means that you’re going to know a ton about your next set of pre-owned clubs — the good and the bad — allowing you to choose a set that’s perfect for you. These shops stake their reputation on your happiness, so you can rest assured that when your pro shop tells you a scratch on a driver is a normal sign of wear, it really won’t affect play.
