Currently using a loan set, Nike Slingshot Tour with original graphite shaft. Think it's the 2006 model. What do your guys think of this set for a bigginer.

Spoke to a fitter while getting a "fitted" set for my 8 yr old son when a parent told me the Perry gear my son is using seems a bit short for him. Son is only into his 8th lesson.

Chatted with the fitter on how i feel with the current set and he got me to try a set the shop is selling as well as the below, both steel shaft. The one below actually feels better and the ball went stright and further. But i hit too few shots to be sure.

Since i just started, was thinking maybe i should learn and improve correctly and not slowly improving and perfecting the wrong ones. so maybe a less forgiving set? on the other hand, i dont want one a set that i cant handle.

I think i am addicted to golf.
