Is this a good deal on golf clubs?

Used Taylor Made 360 Irons with a rated condition of 7.5/8 out of 10. 3-PW with Taylor Made Lite S-90 Graphite Shafts and Taylor Made Grips for $200.

Last time I looked, these guys ran about $500-$600 new. Depending on the condition, it's probably a decent deal at the bottom of the used range, as clubs in that price range used will normally be about $200-$300.

Edit: I'm not really sure what a user rating of 7.5/8 oo 10 really tells you unless you have a basis for comparison.

So, a brand new steel set like this for $240 would be a better deal?

Graphite shafts generally cost $100-200 more per set. The stiff flex may not be what you are looking for however. It can create changes in your downswing and followthrough.

That's an Ebay auction with a starting bid and 3 days remaining.

I just looked and he's right... ebay auction? check - it's on ebay. starting bid? check - there's a starting bid (although none placed). 3 days remaining? check - (plus 19 hours).

First time he's been right all day - let him have it.

(just because he didn't see the buy it now price doesn't mean he's 100% wrong).

I'm not an ebay guy, so I don't look for that stuff.

I also didn't notice that it's a steel shaft and not a graphite shaft.

Now's a good time to look for used clubs. Lots of golf shops looking to clear inventory for winter.

The rating scale 9.0-9.8 are near Mint. Basically driving range hit a few times. 1 round or so. 8.0 been used for a season but in good shape. 7.0 been used with visible scratches, probably on the sole. Grooves could be worn some.

I'm looking to find a 21* Mizuno HI Fli II Utility Iron myself. Can't hit my 3 iron that well and I'm usually short of the green when I use my 3 or 4 iron. Just bought a hybrid grafalloy blue graphite iron shaft from golfsmith, new grips and some tees.

Can someone please tell me what the difference is between a "rescue wood" or "rescue fairway wood" and a regular "fairway wood", which I am told is the same thing as a regular 3 or 5 wood??
