I went to the sale to see both Mizuno and Maruman.. Mizuno is pretty expensive and Maruman sets are hmm.. Not so appealing ha ha ha..! I don't have a coach and will probably consider one.

The Wilson set is the lower range unlike the Wilson Staff series... I read some reviews it says 'getting a starter set for teenagers or are you retired.....' Hmmm I'm like in between.. Ha ha ha! So I won't be cobsidering the Wilson set anymore. Listed price in USD is around $169 only.

From a lady to another lady...

1) Buy something you like that pleases your eyes and heart.
If I don't like something, even if it's good for me, I will not appreciate it and will find fault with it and I will end up spending more money in future.

2) Buy something which will benefit you most.
If what pleases me is not going to benefit my game than I have to think again. Is there another option which I should consider instead?

If you are sold on Callaway, have a swing at it, hit some balls and feel whether you like it or not.

Give the other options recommended in this thread a go as well. Who knows you may change your mind after.

Happy shopping.

Thanks Garfield,

My hubby thinks I am kind of brand concious to begin with initially I told him the Wilson set looks decent and pretty for it's price. He told me straight you won't use it for long, he said when you start going to the greens you will probably want to carry a more reputable set. We have nothing against Wilson, my hubby likes Wilson Staff just too bad this is the Wilson set without the 'Staff'...

As mentioned after checking online, US is offering the Wilson set at only $169 some even cheaper whereas SG selling for $430 and Callaway is at USD 899. Hence it is more worthwhile buying the Callaway set cos it's same 899 but SG currency.

I'm a sucker for online shopping but mainly apparels. Don't mind to try and buy clubs but seems like the Callaway Solaire is already priced very low at Golf Direct considering I don't have to bear shipping costs. I guess the answer is clear now.. Callaway Solaire..Ha!

Thanks hubby in advance... And thanks jimmychoo for bringing up about the Coach... Worth considering! Razz
