Garage sale gold

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

My wife and I go to garage sales about one Saturday morning a month (usually I look for things to resell on ebay to support my golf habit). I saw these for $50, but I offered $35 and they took it. 3-PW Mizuno MP-14's. I was currently playing Ping i3's and had been wanting to try some forged blades. Took these to the driving range just a while ago and they hit great. They look like the kid who owned them was like "hey the pro's play these", then he played with them for one season before deciding he couldn't hit em.

So now I'm gonna sell my i3's and use the money to put some new decade grips on these MP-14's. So give me a rating/10... best $35 ever spent? lol

I called a golf course around here that I used a play a lot at, said they can grip em with the new decades for $9.99 a piece. $80 + tax + $35 = ~$130 for a half new set of irons.

You can get the same grips for $80 (or even less) on ebay, and and re-grip them yourself. Just look around, you might even find a set with tape, solvent and a vise wedge for that price.

Eh, at that price I'd rather let a pro do it. I looked on ebay, my choices are: Pay $80 to try it myself, or pay a couple bucks more to let someone who does it for a living do it.

Seriously, it does not take a pro to regrip a set of irons. If nothing else YouTube it for instructions and save yourself some money. I used to do with 2 sided tape and lighter fluid. Save yourself some $$. BTW, great get on the MP14's.

I liked them with the old grips, I can't wait to get the new ones on. My forearm actually started to cramp because I was squeezing them so tight at the range...holding on for dear life because they were so slippery. Why anyone would use tour wraps is beyond me.

Man, you can completely support your golf and related expenses by finding things at garage sales to resell on ebay. Namebrand purses, boots, car parts, games, Pokemon cards (no kidding man, these things still sell), etc. Just look for things you know a little something about, use your phone to look up current values while you're browsing. Make offers if you need to. It's great fun to get up on a Saturday at 6, grab some coffee with your wife, and spend the morning together on a treasure hunt. Put $30 in 5's in your pocket and go.

I started a thread about all the sets I have bought since last year when I started playing again.  Some great sticks and some not so great.  Yesterday I took a set out with carbon fiber shafts, Founders Club Royales.  I paid 10 bucks nib for these plus shipping off the bay.  The most inexpensive clubs I have purchased.  They hit wonderfully.  I was surprised at how well they played actually.  I know I hit them at the range but don't think I played with them.  Very surprised they hit as solid as they do.

 

Anyways good deal on the MP's.  Forged are really nice.  When you sweet it there is nothing like it.  Nice man.  thanks
