My stepmom gave my son her clubs (men).  Here's the rub, they have been sitting in storage for so long that the grips are deteriorating.  The question is, can you fix them?  Get them re-gripped? (is that a word).  Or is it more cost effective to get a new set?

These clubs are not top of the line.  We aren't looking for top of the line, just solid clubs.  What is your opinion on fixing vs. new as far as cost and a better investment.  I'm not looking to pick one because it's cheaper.  I'm trying to determine what's the better investment.  Hope that makes sense.  Thanks

Julie, if it was me, I would have them re-gripped.  And don't let the golf shop you take them to talk you into buying another whole set, because they probably will try.  :)  As long as the handles are in good condition and the irons & woods are on solidly and don't have excessive wear on them, I think they would definately be usable.

I'd also suggest re-gripping. If you don't want to pay for a full service regripping, you can buy  "shrinkwrap" grips that you can install yourself. they cost about $20 for three and cure in about 24 hours. Their one drawback is the y smell like a leaking petrochemical plant.
