I’ve been debating upgrading my irons for some time now (been rocking some Hogan Apex Plus’s for about 20 years now) and just wanted to get people’s thoughts on the options.
I don’t think I play enough to justify the ~$1,500 investment in a new top of the line set, so I’m focusing on finding some 2016 or 2017 models. Do golf retailers still sell older models new, or would i have to get a used set? I’m a bit on the taller side, so I’d like to get them fitted properly, is there a real advantage of getting fitted first and custom ordering a set (if still possible with older models), or can I just get a used set and then have them lengthened/altered to fit me? I’ve heard just getting clubs altered after the fact can impact the integrity, but not sure I buy that.
Thanks in advance.
