Just wondering if someone has some advice on these two brands of golf clubs, the top flite set i was looking at was the XL7000 and the brosnan set are called grades. I tested the brosnan set today and they felt good and am yet to test the top flite set.

I started out with Brosnan clubs years ago, personally I thought they were a good stick, there's been a lot of water under the bridge since then though.

outlay some hard earned and but a decent set, you can pick up some cheap branded clubs from the states.

Two brands here that perhaps should be treated with a little aprehension. Obviously they are in a price range that you are looking at. If it is on the cheaper side of things that you want, have a look at Maxfli. I have just recently upgraded from a set of Maxfli sticks that I have used for three years. Got me from a handicap of 24 down to 12. Only cost me 400bucks to buy them. Worth a look.

If the brosnan clubs are anything like the quality of my brosnan cart bag then dont go near them.

Jump on 3balls, rockbottom golf or golfetail. I picked up some Callaway X22s for $500 delivered. You can get good clubs even cheaper on these sites too. Great time to buy while the US dollar is weak.

I bought Brosnans 2 years ago, mainly because I had no idea if I'd be playing more than once or twice a year, so picked the cheapest set. Since then the bug has got me, and I have been slowly upgrading the set ever since, particularly in the last year. Now have a Nike driver, Macgregor FW and Hybrid, Srixon forged wedges and Odyssey putter. Only thing left is the irons, and am in the process of getting Mizuno prices from the states. The Brosnan driver was terrible, worst club I've ever hit, FWs were ok but nothing compared to the macgregor. Hybrid pretty average, and Irons ok, but to hit a Mizuno in comparison with a good shaft is chalk and cheese. I haven't had any problems with things falling apart, but I don't think they have helped my game at all. If you are planning on playing more than a 5 times a year, go with what people above are recommending and get a decent set. They may cost you twice as much, but they will be twice as good, there is no doubt about that. If you aren't sure about getting from the states, then have a look at current specials here with Callaway X20 or X18, or Taylormade. You could probably do worse than picking up a set of Macgregors as well for a good price. Better off getting a new, but 07/08 model of club, or even a good condition used club than a set of Brosnans.

I had a brosnan set for about 6 years when I was playing once a month and never really had a problem with them except for the drivers for which I upgraded along the way. While I don't use them now ( Cleveland ) I didn't think there was much wrong with them. My brother picked up a nice set of Maxfli set and they seem to be a nice club for a beginner just looking to get into the game for the 1st time
