Welcome.

The best person to ask what you should use is your coach... and if not yet have one, getting one first would be the first step. Smile

Hmm, i dont have a coach now. I started golf from those corporate "learn to play golf" events and i think due to a low budget, the coaches that they engaged are not very good at teaching. Yes they can hit well, but they can' really teach. The only thing they say is just practice, you will get it ...

Welcome. I will recommend to see a coach. Fundamentals are very important, IMHO. Enjoy!! Smile

This is a commonly asked questions, so there's lots of write-ups on this.

http://golf.about.com/od/faqs/a/golf_shafts_faq.htm

http://golf.about.com/cs/componentscustom/a/steelvsgraphite.htm

As for which you should use, as the article said, it depends on what you are looking for, how serious you will be about the game (I know, you don't know until you try, chicken and egg also), etc.

But you will have lots of fun discovering what's right for you.

Enjoy your journey.

Peace.

Buying new stuff always inspires you to practice more, however you will
Soon come to realize that having good coaching is far more important than a nice set of clubs.

I totally agree with Bangla, i am self taught golfer and developed alot of bad habits. Such bad habits got stuck with me for many many years.

Even after i got a coach, it take very very very long time to change.. Bet get coach from start to develop the correct fundamentals
