LovinFX says:

Super insightful, however I have one question. To what extent are deviations from the norm still okay? For example, is 0,5 inches crucial or still viable? Same goes for lie. Can I buy Ping blue dot (+1° lie) or not?

Ewan Connor says:

So no advice then ?

Zone7Rizzo says:

I got some 400 dollar clubs . Not good at all . I played a couple times and have a natural feel . My clubs are not forgiving at all. Im 5’11 yet they feel short . Any club sets or pre owned sets anyone could recommend .

John Rhodes says:

I’m just getting back into golf.
I’m going to buy a set of second hand Callaway Hawkeye VFT, they were the best when I last played.

Nothree Putts says:

First thing I check is grip. Do the grips need to be replaced? If so, that could cost more than the clubs themselves.

Tombstone FPV says:

Never had a horse in my head, but I've had a little horse in my throat. Sorry bad joke. I usually only bought used clubs from someone I knew when could. Haven't bought any new clubs in about 17 years.

Pound Puppy says:

Bought a fake TaylorMade driver a few years ago and it played as long as the real one that a friend had. Same loft, same shaft, etc. I didn't know it was fake until a guy in a pro shop ran the numbers and they didn't match. I still have it as a back up driver and at my level, I seriously doubt that it makes any difference.

Michael Scales says:

First thing to check is are they right or left handed.Golfers have been known to miss this vital point, and it can be annoying if you don't check this at the beginning.

Benjamin McCormick says:

I just realized (after playing with it since May) that my second-hand driver had a shaft that is 1.5" shorter than my spec. I've been struggling with driving distance all year and I'm inclined to think the shorter shaft had a part in it. My new shaft (from the club manufacturer) arrived a couple days ago and I'll be heading out tomorrow to see if there's a big difference.

i must be playing with fake golf clubs cuz my performance is shocking

Iconic Stance says:

Bought some ping G400's for £350 thanks to your review on thr G425's. Thanks for saving me 500 quid Rick👍🏼👍🏼

Roberto Mercer says:

Are knock off irons ok 👍 not copy’s just off brand or better to buy name used

Timothy Bevis says:

My biggest fear is buying fake equipment. I have become a huge believer in investigating that club or bag I'm looking to buy. Mainly because I cannot go out and buy new. I usually buy clubs that are 2-4 years older. So just be careful when buying on line. Thanks Rick

S Quarterman says:

spec is absolutely right. Ping is a great example – don't just go and buy a Ping set of irons and ignore the dot colour – work out what colour dot you are and get the right ones. I'm yellow, so getting red dot would be pointless!

People will be kicking themselves in few weeks if they miss the opportunity to buy and invest in bitcoin

Jason Schroeder says:

Great advice. As someone who has never really had the budget to buy new clubs or go for a fitting, I have always wondered how much of a difference a fitting would make to my overall game. Anyone got any insight?

Wyatt Orrante says:

Actually just picked up an odyssey white hot 2 ball putter on offerup today for 50 USD, a real and original one though not an OG

Michael Welfare says:

The counterfeits were seized in China, 21,000 units 😱

William bilbo says:

Accidental Partridge ‘’ these clubs are bloody long!’’

The Amateur Golfer UK says:

Now you mention it…. I have done a video on this 😂 How to spot fakes though🤔 and btw the raid was in China 21,000 pieces of counterfeit equipment !!!

Joe Buda says:

Thanks Rick, love the videos

Thumper says:

Won state championship with used set of gold Titleist DCI irons old man brought home for me. That earned me a custom set of 690 MB blades got them ordered before they were even released and still use them 🙂

Jason Starek says:

Those were my fav sticks back in high school Titleist DCI

Brian Lee says:

Good advice Rick. I'm 6' 5" tall, my irons are 2 up and 2 over. Wouldn't work for you. Love the show. ✌️⛳️
