Irons 5 thru P and 3i and 4i Hybred Mid 60's golfer playing once a week (25 hdcp). Swing speed in upper 60's. Play in Sr. Men's league at Emerald Greens. Enjoy Crystal Lake Golf Club in Lakeville, MN. 90's Look for a club with modest price, yet able to address the concerns of a older golfer (duffer). Found this set of clubs added 10 yards to most shots w/o the need to swing out of control equals more control. Dick's Sporting Goods sales people were knowledgeable and helpful. Cost was very attractive 6 irons and 2 hybreds for under $100. Happenings Book had coupon for $20 off. Found this set of clubs added 10 yards to most shots w/o the need to swing out of control equals more control. Shafts provide low impact. Good grips, light weight. Great price point.
Good clubs for higher handicap player with modest budget looking to improve his game.

All clubs have Black Adila shafts with carbon fiber pattern. Black and yellow color scheme. 2 Hybrid irons. I am 30 years old and I've been playing golf on and off for about 15 years. This is my third set of clubs after somebody ran off with my beloved Ping Zings. I gave up golf for 3 years after elbow surgery and have recently realized I'm ready to play again, but didn't want to make the huge investment in clubs. I pulled out my old steel shaft Knights out and went to the driving range and honestly I could barely hit the ball, and when I did a jolting shock went up my elbow and I dropped the club once or twice. So I decided to try a new set. 80's Dick's Sporting Goods. $299 Additional $60 for matching MS/2 Walter Hagen Bag (on sale) First off, the look of the clubs is really sporty and will appeal to us flashy, younger players. Aldila shafts are really nice and the Regular flex clubs give me no pain in my elbow that I was experiencing with the other brands I tried. I really like the gradual changes in the club heads throughout the set. It almost feels like a 'pieced together set,' taking one club design from each of the popular sets out there. The 9 iron is a full cavity back and as the set moves upward, the club heads begin to fill up to a solid head. (the 5 iron reminds me of a Nike Slingshot) Added along to the set are two hybrid irons (3and4) that hit pretty amazing. I was a bit unsure about the Walter Hagen brand and since they're a 'house brand' for Dick's Sporting Goods, they don't get much respect among the Callaways, Pings, and Taylor Mades that most people are carrying these days. But they're alot classier than the package deals you see there. You'll still need to get a putter and a sand wedge (for you beach goers). It's also really hard to find any information on these clubs. In fact I have found no reviews anywhere about them and it was hard to find out who makes the clubs. (From what I gathered, Walter Hagen is a brand made by Nicklaus golf and branded for Dick's Sporting Goods.) The clubs are made very well with tight seams in their construction. The Aldila shafts are really nice quality and are used in many higher branded sets. So far I don't have any dents or paint chips in the hybrids.
Overall this set is well worth the money. I had the intentions of purchasing a set of Taylor Made R7 Draws with graphite shafts for an additional $300, however I hit as well with these clubs for half the price. For those of you on a budget, this set is a good deal and it leaves you to invest your money into a good driver. I have a Cleveland Hibore XL and it accompanies this set wonderfully.
