When it comes to buying beginner golf clubs, you should consider three top factors: playability, status and cool factor, and price/resale value. Whether you are buying Adams, Callaway, Mizuno, Cleveland, Nike, Cobra, Titleist, TaylorMade, secondary brand names or clones these consideration are important. The same consideration also Vclubshop apply for all types of clubs (drivers, putters, wedges, woods, hybrids and irons).
This article focuses on price/resale value. Another term for resale value is trade in value. This is because most golfers end up trading in their clubs at golf retail stores rather than selling the clubs to other golfers on their own.
Now when it comes to price/resale value, you would be sadly mistaken to think that all brand name clubs are roughly the same. They are not. Further, if you think that every type of club made by an individual brand name has similar cost/resale value you would be wrong Vclubshop as well.
The fact is that some golf club manufacturers are known for their drivers, irons, woods, hybrids, wedges or putters (not all their clubs). So if you are looking to trade your beginner golf clubs at some later time, you should be fully informed on the resale value.
Additionally, resale value has to be compared with the original cost of your clubs. Some clubs may resale for the same amount as others, but there may Vclubshop be a significant difference on the initial pricing of the clubs. Therefore, the best combination is a low initial cost and a high resale value.
Now, if you are planning to keep your clubs for three or more years, resale value is not as important as initial cost. After three years, most clubs lose the majority of their resale value. Resale value is the most important for those looking to only keep their clubs for one to two years.
