I would recommend a fitting. Clubs that don't fit introduce the need for compensations in the golf swing that can make the game little fun. For a recreational golfer, this can be as simple as recommending shaft flex, length, lie, and overall weight. I believe the Custom Golf Shop at Palmer will do a fitting for about $50. You don't need to buy the clubs from them, although they may have a used set that meets many or most of the specs they recommend. You will save yourself lots of money and frustration getting fit first, even if your a new golfer.

Be wary of eBay. There are a lot of counterfeit clubs being sold these days. If a deal seems really, really good, the clubs are probably counterfeit. This usually applies to new sets, but there are more and more used sets that are also counterfeit. Someone bought them, didn't like them, or found out they are counterfeit, and is trying to unload them to an unsuspecting buyer.
