    Re: Price of new irons

    I got a fantastic price on my new AP3's which resulted in me paying c£110 each . Still pricey I agree but £150 per club is only rrp. I know how this sounds to some but if you pay that much you're mad !!

    Re: Price of new irons

    Whilst I don't disagree some of the prices quoted are quite fruity, no-one makes you or anyone buy the stuff.
    I think that we as a society are now too used to always having and wanting the latest of this, that or anything and are too sucked into the marketing gumpf these companies spout. We feed the monster they have created, and happily so.
    Forever trying.

    Exactly. It's a consumer decision and if you have the income then crack on. The prices are only going to go one way on new releases and so for me, the days of getting clubs soon after release are gone. I'll wait a while and wait for some deals, or even the next release and get the previous version

    Not sure it means that as many places will offset the cost of the fitting from the price.

    MATE - get yourself fitted and you then know your specs

    Then search for a used set

    I went to Callaway - had a fab fitting - for my idea spec and bought a nearly new set four weeks later - they had been used for four rounds and cost me £500 compared to their £895 new price

    A 5 year old set of Mizuno irons (new and unused) will set you back around £450. Half the price of today's new ones.

    Re: Price of new irons

    But i don't think you are getting something worth double the cost. The 5 year old set are going to be just as good.
