You should also pay attention to what ball you play. As a beginner, you want to play a ball with low spin. Try the Bridgestone E6 or Titleist NXT.
If you buy a used set, you would probably want to regrip them as well. It is pretty inexpensive. Golf Pride's website can fit you for the correct grip.
I just got fit for the Taylor Made Burner 2.0's and I absolutely love them. I have gone from a 20 handicap my first round this summer to a 13. Thats a legit handicap. Putt out everything, play as it lies, all penalties, etc. It is such a great game but so damn hard to be consistently good.
