Golf Club Heads
Make sure the used golf clubs do not have major dents and scratches all over the club heads. Ideally, the club heads should be free of gouges, chips in paint, ball marks and scratches. Since it is a used golf clubs, slight ball marks and minor blemishes on top of club head are acceptable.
Golf Club Faces
Golf club faces is utmost important because dents and scratches especially on the clubface could seriously affect the flight path of the golf ball. You may want to check the clubface for worn spot. Usually, face wear is obvious on the used golf clubs that had been heavily played for a long period of time. In general, club face with the scoring lines and markings that still sharp with litter wear and scratches is consider in good condition.
Golf shafts are the second important area to check. For graphite golf shafts, check for potential shaft burn or bag wear areas that may cause weakness. For steel golf shafts, check for any bending signs. Make sure the shaft is structurally sound. Finally, verify the used golf clubs set has similar golf shafts on all golf clubs so that the feeling of the golf swing is consistent among all the golf clubs.
Make sure the golf grips don't have cracks, splits and worn areas. Even if the grips appear to be perfect on the used golf clubs, you may still have to change the grips as the grip size may not be right for you . If the used golf clubs need to be re-gripped, you will need to pay additional RM300 to get every grip in the golf bag changed (it's about RM25 per club).
Golf Set Consistency
Check through all the golf clubs for incomplete and non-matching sets. Make sure the used golf set has consistent shaft models, shaft lengths, shaft flexes and lie angles. Also, verify there are no duplicate clubs within the used golf set. Moreover, make sure the Irons set must consist of at least eight (8) irons in either a 3-PW or 4-SW combination. Finally, look for any non-factory alterations (such as non-factory installed shafts).
Happy golfing everyone!!!
