Getting into sports is a great way to get in shape, but some sports require a bit too much time for most people to be able to do. Team sports require fitting practices and games into your schedule, and one-on-one sports require frequent practice in order to get better.
Golf is a game where you only compete against yourself. You can play and practice whenever, and there’s no rush to try to beat a certain opponent on a schedule. The only thing that makes golf difficult to get into is the initial cost.
If you’re buying from a lot of the common brands such as Wilson, TaylorMade, Callaway, or Titleist, then those clubs can get pretty expensive. A full set of brand new clubs from the top brands can easily cost over $1,000.
The STRATA set of clubs provides you with a full set of quality clubs at a very reasonable price. Interestingly enough, the STRATA clubs are actually made by Callaway – they just don’t carry the brand symbol on them.
They don’t feature all of Callaway’s newest features, but they’re still made with quality materials from a reliable manufacturer, and the cost certainly makes them worth it. This set includes all of the basic clubs that you’re going to need to get started.
It has a driver, a 3 wood, a 4 and 5 hybrid, irons from 6 to 9, two wedges, and a putter. For most golfers, that’s going to be everything they need, with the possible exception of an additional wedge, which can be bought separately later.
The wood clubs are very forgiving. The driver has a large sweet spot, meaning you’re less likely to hit it off to the sides, giving you a lot more control. The other woods are similarly built, so you’re going to get plenty of distance off of all of them.
The irons in this set are cavity style, meaning they have thicker bases and a lot more weight in the head. For non-professional players, this means greater distance and more straight shots, which ultimately means a better golf game.
The hybrids have been added to replace the long irons, as many players now find them much easier to use, as they give you a larger face to work with, and more confidence in your swing. The putter has a milled face, which provides great accuracy, especially on longer putts, and helps with more precise distance control so putts don’t go too far.
