    You should consider 2nd hand clubs as well. You can get quality brand name clubs in most shops in their 2nd hand bin. May work out cheaper than a set of Hippos. Although,you may have to add in the price of new grips, €8 each?

    Are you looking at the XXL hippos with 3 4 irons as hybrids. If so I'd get them they are a nice set of clubs especially for a beginner/high handicapper.

    That Texan brand is rubbish. Hippo are the best 'value' brand out there.
    I've had a Hippo driver & 3-wood. Good clubs.
