9-Club Essentials Set (w/ Bag and Head Covers)

Performance

When compared to its competitors, Robin golf clubs offered the most distance and forgiveness of the beginners sets reviewed.

Feel

The driver, fairway wood, and hybrid in the Robin set are simply built better than those in the rest of the sets evaluated in this review. You can feel the ball trampoline off the faces of these clubs. In terms of the irons, there is a rubber insert behind the sweet spot that offers a softer feel off of the face than the other sets in this review.

Aesthetics

The black theme of Robin’s set is by far the most aesthetically pleasing of the beginners sets reviewed. The clubs come in an all black bag that is sleek and minimalistic -- unlike the rest of the bags reviewed which were much more clunky. In terms of the clubs, they all come in a beautiful matte black finish with minimal branding besides the Robin bird logo. As a beginner you want to look the most like you know what you’re doing, and the Robin set does all that and more.

Accessories

Robin clubs come with premium leather headcovers for the driver, fairway wood, hybrid, and putter. On the inside of the headcovers is a plush felt that keeps the clubs protected from daily wear-and-tear. The set also includes a bag cover for rainy days and travel. Finally, the set includes an adjustment tool for the driver which can be used to adjust the club in terms of lie angle and ball flight (fade or draw).

Driver

The Robin set includes a premium 455cc titanium driver that is adjustable -- a feature that none of the other beginners sets in this review have. The driver also outperformed the other four drivers in this review in terms of forgiveness on mis-hits and in terms of total distance. This thing goes far.

Casual 9-Piece Set

Club Aesthetics

Stix’s Casual 9-Piece Set is definitely appealing when it comes to looks, which isn’t common in the beginner’s market. Most beginners sets are color-coded and scream “beginner” before you even take a swing. The all-black theme of Stix’s clubs (on the shafts, grips, and clubheads), however, makes it look like you know what you’re doing out on the course - even if you don’t.

Fairway Wood & Hybrid

The fairway wood and hybrid in Stix’s Casual 9-Piece Set are easy to hit, which is mainly due to the fact that they have more loft in them than your average fairway wood and hybrid on the market. That being said, it was very easy to get the ball off the ground with these clubs, which is what a beginner needs - especially when it comes to the longer, more difficult clubs to hit in the bag.

Irons

Stix’s irons are easy to hit and help get the ball into the air quickly, which is primarily due to the wide sole on the bottom of each club. The clubs also rank high in the forgiveness category, with the help of a generous cavity back - a feature that any beginner should welcome. When you hit the center of the clubface with these irons there is a nice little “click” sound to it. The faces of the irons are relatively soft but have enough feedback to let the beginner know the difference between a shot hit on the screws versus a shot hit on the toe or the heel.

Headcovers

The headcovers in the Stix set are some of the worst headcovers we’ve seen out there. They are paper thin, hard to take on and off, and do not provide the amount of protection needed for golf clubs. They also cheapen the look of the set, which isn’t ideal either!

Wedges

The wedges in the Stix set are pretty run-of-the-mill and do not offer much in the way of playability. The pitching wedge is built like the rest of the irons in the set, while the sand wedge is built more like an actual wedge: meaning that the player can open the club up slightly to hit more delicate shots around the green. The sand wedge was also difficult to hit off of tight, flat lies, which is never ideal. Stix also falls victim to a mistake most other beginners sets make in that they only offer two wedges in the set. The majority of golf shots are hit within 100 yards of the hole, so the selection of clubs in the set should reflect that -- AKA more wedges!

Callaway Strata Complete Set

Iron Variability

The irons in this set are comprehensive and will allow beginners to hit a variety of yardages from the fairway, rough, or sand.

Wedges

The option of both a sand wedge and a pitching wedge allow for a greater variety of shots from 100 yards and in for beginners. These clubs are also essential to getting up and down around the green.

Wood Selection

Driver, fairway wood, and hybrid offer versatility off the tee and from 180+ yards.

Iron Construction

The irons in the Callaway set are the thinnest of all tested, and may be more difficult for the average beginner to hit.

Driver Setup

When you set the Callaway driver up on the ground, it sets up completely closed. For those unaware, the clubface is considered “closed” when it is decidedly aimed to the left (for a righty). This promotes pulls, hooks, and even the dreaded pull-hook!

Bazooka 370 Complete Set

Club Selection

The Tour Edge set comes complete with 12 clubs, which is two more than the next competitor in this review. These extra clubs -- mainly the irons -- allow beginners to be more versatile out on the course providing the ability to hit more precise yardages.

Shafts

The shafts on these clubs are significantly stiffer than every other set than Robin’s. Men’s clubs should be on the stiffer side, as their swings speeds -- even as beginners -- can get above 100 mph. As a result, this driver went the straightest -- second only to Robin’s driver.

Putter

It’s styled like the classic PING Anser putter and has significant weight to it which encourages more consistent strokes.

Driver

The second-best driver in this review. 460cc head titanium head with weight placed in the heel and toe for an optimized CG (center of gravity). The face of the club is ultra-thin, which you can feel when you hit a good one -- it feels almost like a trampoline. Mis-hits still go pretty far which is another positive attribute.

Profile SGI Complete Set

Wedges

The wedges in this set are the best of any set in this review. The sand wedge in particular allows the beginner the opportunity to open the clubface up in order to hit higher shots around the greens. The bounce of the sand wedge also is beneficial when dealing with tight lies around the green.

Fang-Style Putter

The putter in the Wilson set looks a bit different than the others, but in a good way. The fangs on either side of the blade allow for easier alignment and straighter strokes -- which leads to more putts made.

Irons

Wilson’s irons have some solid weight to them and also include white alignment lines in the grooves around the sweet spot, which makes aiming at the target much easier.

Woods

The woods in this set were pretty disappointing. They were all very difficult to hit and did not provide the feedback on good swings that is necessary for beginners to gain confidence off the tee or in the fairway.

Shafts

The graphite shafts in the woods are too flexible for an average male. Men -- even as beginners -- deserve a shaft that will stand up to their fastest swing speeds. These clubs will perform poorly for men with faster swing speeds and will promote errank shots.
