==Meridian 9 Iron Junior Golf Club age 5-7==
Jack has an array of various golf clubs with a few of the irons made by the same company and his other clubs made by others. This is because the majority of the clubs we managed to source second hand off various auction sites online. This was not only to save money but because we are still not sure whether we are trying to teach him to play right handed but his grip keeps suggesting he may well be a lefty like his daddy.
We have this Meridian 9 iron Junior Golf Club in the right handed version but it is also available for left handed players too. The club we purchased was second hand and from eBay but you can get this club in places such as Sports Direct in store and online or Amazon sell it as well. The price we paid was a very reasonable £7 which included postage and packing and the club was in a great condition. If you were to buy this club brand new it would cost roughly around the £15 to £16 price range and if bought online you might incur a postage and packing charge also which bumps the price up somewhat.
This club is sure to last Jack a good while as the age range is from 5 to 7 and where Jack is 5 ½ and due a growth spurt the club (as with a lot of his others) is just about the right size for him with a little bit of room for him to shoot up. However the 9 iron club itself is one of the shortest irons he has,apart from his wedges is the shortest iron in his little golf bag.
The 9 iron club is one of the most used clubs at the driving range for Jack as he really wants to get used to using it well. The club is best used for high lofted shots onto the green and thus it is quite an important club to master using. It is an easy club to use because of the shorter shaft and the angle of the head that the club has.
The shaft of this club is made from graphite and to me the entire club feels lightweight apart from the weight of the head but then it is a good deal smaller than an adult sized club. But Jack seems to find it comfortable to use and his hold on the rubbery grip section of the club is good and there never seems to be any slippage at all when I have stood watching up the driving range with the boys.
He uses this club a lot more than others and seems to have mastered it well. The club itself even though we have bought it second hand looks like it has stood the test of time and as long as jack takes good care of it which I am sure he will we will probably be able to sell the club on to another young golfer when he has grown out of it and put the money made towards the next sized up clubs (unless we try him out with left handed clubs before then).
I think for the price we paid it was exceptional value for money. I think the club as a whole is used a fair bit more than other clubs we have bought for him and therefore I am sure the brand new RRP price of the club does represent good value for money too and I wouldn't have been too upset had we paid that price for it.
I think it is a well made, well used club that will stand the test of time and aid Jack into learning the game and improving with each use so I am more than happy to award this club a top score of 5 out of 5 stars and would highly recommend it to any budding Tiger Woods!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
