Nickent 5dx Ironwood

15 posts in this topic

Just won a Nickent 5dx Ironwood on ebay........for 50 bucks even!!!!

I'm a little skeptical about it. They seller has 100% positive feedback, but is only a 34. The auction was for one day only, I bid from my iPhone, thinking that I would surely be outbid, but I wasn't. So I woke up this morning with an email saying that I had won the hybrid.

What do you guys think?

It is brand new according to the ebay listing, so its not like I on accident bid on just a club head or something.

I just won the club today, so I'm going to wait to here from someone on here before I go ahead and make a payment.

I'm hoping I just lucked up and got a good deal.

Oh I love my lone Nickent 3dx #4 Ironwood. it hits so straight and I can get great distance. I love it. I'm sure the 5dx is going to be even better....I was just a little worried about getting ripped off because of the great deal.

Correction....it is a used club. I'm guessing that is why its 50 bucks. They rate it a 9.5 out of 10.

Well I would just pay for it and if it's a POS when you get it just return it.

eBay is pretty clear on the rules...you bid, you win, you pay!

Let us know how the club is. I have a 4DX - love it!

Sometimes you just get lucky and score a great deal. I got my putter off an internet auction site for a steal when I thought for sure that someone would outbid me. Also, consider the fact that Nickent isn't one of the "big names" so a lot of people might have overlooked it when they were browsing and didn't realise there was a great deal to be had.

Nickent might have great clubs, but I bet they don't hold their value at all, especially with all the trouble they are having right now. I would say chalk it up as a great deal if the club is in good condition. As Fat Slice said, you won, you need to pay.

Oh I paid already, I was just getting a second opinion that I wasn't getting ripped off.

I'm pumped about getting the club. I love my 3Dx and I'm sure I'll love the 5!!!!!

I'll let you guys know how it goes.

The price doesn't surprise me. Nickent makes great stuff, but they have a hell of a time selling it.

I got my set for about $400 off ebay brand new from gppgolf.com. It consisted of: 3h, 4h, 5i-9i, PW, Driver.(Same stuff in my sig). It was the single best deal i could find, and I haven't looked back once.

The Nickent 5DX is a great club, I upgraded from 4DX to the 5DX and never looked back. Congrats on the killer deal!

Got my new #6 5DX Ironwood in today. That thing looks awesome. I can't wait to get out on the range and hit some balls. I'll write a review whenever I get back tomorrow!

No followups...so I will make one.

I bought 2 5DX clubs, a 3+ and 2+ with factory stiff shafts.

I already play a 4DX #3 and #4 which I *love*.

I took the 5DXs out for a round and to the range and for me....they're not as good as the 4DX. Maybe it's my swing, I dunno. The heads don't seem to have the same pop and the shaft's might be stiffer and they don't feel like they are loading/unloading. I'm gonna sell them - they're not for me - and look for a 4DX #2.

The 5dx is a fabulous hybrid. I have upgraded from the 3dx, 4dx and now 5dx. I have the 3,4,5 and 6 hybrids and swear by them. They hit long and straight.

    • Finding Value in The Used Club Market
      I'm liking this:   That makes a lot of sense.  Local Retailers may be getting some of the last years models dumped on them when the new clubs start cycling through.  I was thinking about doing the demo days thing to get a taste of what is out there.  The R7 limited and R11 Taylormade Drivers were good to me.  I think a X2 hot/Big Bertha/etc/ect would probably be more forgiving.  Still, I look at the clubs of old... the Cleveland Launcher Comp / Callaway Hawkeye and think: "If I can buy that club for $20... and I can buy newer (used) for $50-$100... hmmm.  Spinning the wheels.  Thanks for the advice though I really appreciate it. If anyone has a Driver / had a Driver they loved from (2009-2014) let me know about it!  What did you like/didn't like?
    • My ex-home courses closing, changing - proofs that golf is in decline
      I just found out that my ex-home course, Sunol Valley Golf course, went out of business last month.  I played 2 - 3 times a week for 2 years not too long ago.  The course was done in by shrinking golfers, and 500% increase in water cost in the last 4 years of CA drought.  They could not make money.   Another ex-home course is now doing business as a golf and foot golf (soccer golf) course.  Golfing customers were not enough. Another course nearby (Santa Clara Tennis and Golf Club) is going to turn into a parking lot for a recently built football stadium. It is sad that despite improved economy in Bay Area, CA, golf business is in decline.  They have been in decline since 1990s but most of the courses around here survived 2008-9 recession.  The current drought and the resulting water cost going through the roof appears to be the final nail in the coffin for the weaker courses.   Sad.
    • Injury Question
      I didn't play golf for about 11 weeks due to it being difficult to play with work after day light savings time fell back.  Now, from the sounds of it, I played through the majority of the repair time as I walked 9 holes 4-5 times a week with 1 day of walking 18 for 7-9 weeks after the injury....I know, I'm an idiot. As it stands now I don't really notice it 90% of the time, its just something that pops up on a swing every now and then.  From the sounds of your healing time, I may have caused it to heal improperly leaving me with a hitch....  If I really just need to not do anything and it'll heal over time then I'd gladly do it, kicking and screaming the entire way as I already had a plan in place to push my handicap into the single digits by years end. I don't like the sound of having something happen as "I get older," I'm only 26 damn it .
    • Injury Question
      I had this injury last spring/summer. You have pulled your intercostal muscles in your ribs. It is a nasty injury which requires a lot of downtime (4-6 weeks minimum more like 8 weeks) to let them repair. It happens as we get older. You need to research ways to heal and take time off from doing those motions such as winding up and releasing. It took 4 months to completely heal and that included lots of ibuprofen as an anti inflammatory and stretching. Take the time off to stop the inflamation or it won't go away and could take longer to heal. It is a difficult process that takes time and when you first feel like you are okay you are more than likely to re injure and make it as bad or worse. You just have to take your medicine or that painful stitch won't go away.
