As OB said, ask, check with, the club fitter as some will steer you toward new gear. Just be honest, tell them your budget and goals.
You may find the fitter has some clubs they traded that will suit.
Trust ya instincts. If you feel you're being sold too, pushed or are unsure get a second opinion. Plenty of good fitters, but also some dodgy ones.
If you pick one who'll also be giving you lessons, you build a long term relationship and will most likely see the best long term outcome (better golf, lower scores, more enjoyment)
Good luck and keep us posted. We like hearing about others struggles
