i am wearing samba for sometime, its really cool looking and nice.
But decided to switch to 260 ATV.
Samba not water proof so in wet condition water will go into the shoes.
Also i felt there is too little spikes on it.
not the most comfortable shoe to walk the whole 18 hole course.
just my take and two cents

Cheers!

I'm a supporter of Adidas and I like the design of the Samba too. Might not get it yet. Maybe wait till I do go to the course.

You should get it a pair of golf shoe now, so you can get use to it when you go on course.
It is one of the best investment, GD samba going cheap also i think only 69 or something, i got it 129 when it came out. its a good buy.

Yeah guess can buy and keep first since there's a sales now.
Don't keep shoes lah....too long never wear the soles will come apart. Anyway u found your irons?

Nope not yet. Sad

Perfect to start your lesson and practice, also start the poisoning...
Muah ah ah ah

No More liao. Last time I went, only got R11S Limited Cover.

Aslo if you are serious into the game, get something decent that can last you till handicap.

For 200-300 set, maybe last you for 6-8 month and you will be considering to change. (From personal experience) Smile

"Considering to change"? As in backside itchy? :p

No lah. Just that found that I can't get the distance I want after sometimes.

Having changed my "set" driver to RBZ and it did help me gain more distance.

Hmmm ok. Guess distance is not my focus now so guess doesn't matter. Wanna focus on my fundamentals first. Probably end up with another set for proper game in future.

I would say that is a wise thought ...

TS - would recommend looking at some 2nd hand iron sets to start off. Agree with je7170 that you should get something decent to last for a while. Plenty of good decent price sets at market place or 2nd hand shops. Go on down to Far East Shopping Centre (beside Hilton Hotel) or Creative Golf (Kreta Ayer) to shop around. You'll be certainly spoilt for choice.

Personally I will recommend iron sets from Mizuno or some Jap brands. Somehow I felt that they were easier to hit for beginners...

As a newbie golfer myself, my recommendation is to go for Callaway X series (x22/x24). Been playing with these and they are quite forgiving to a newbie but at the same time will give you better feedback than Ping or TM. Plus they look much better than the rest.

You will notice soon enough that some clubs look chunkier and uglier than others while the blades (something not to recommend to a beginner) will look sleek and sexy. The look of the Callaway's are just nice, something which i honestly think is important in terms of your confidence at address.

Just like aze06 suggested opt for second hand at the moment. No point investing is something too grand. Go to Far East Shopping Centre or to Joe from Creative Golf (creativegolf.net). I bought mine from Joe, very friendly guy.

All my sets were from Joe... including my current one.
In fact, he kept my 1st set of a Honma classic which I had been trying to buy it back from him ever since....

Go to GD.
They have complete sets for only 199 or 299.
And they hv more decent irons sets at reasonable price also.

Real advice is pick up a preowned set on mkt place here. Good enough to last you until you get your handicap before you consider really what you really need after having played the game.

bro, what's GD?
