Dunlop 13 Driver - Beware

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 

My cousin (not legally but we are basically family) just dropped a few bucks on the new Dunlop 13 C- driver.  He is a hellova golfer but he gets scammed real eazy.  He was a Big-Oh the other day and pick up a couple wide-body Appalachian Ridge tires for his Geep and they offered to throw in the new Dunlop 13 C-, no strings attached.  He took the bait (yeah, I know), but when he went to the range he instantly lost about 1-2 yards of his tee shot.  Needless to say, he was pissed out of his mind and tried to return it.  But they would take it back since it was free and because they said they didn't have enough room for it.  So he is probably going to pop it up on ebay, so beware, cause it would most likely reduce your total driving statistic.

Have you been drug tested lately?

1 or 2 yards?    From a 250+ yard tee shot.  That's impossible to even measure that closely.  And he got it free from Big O with a purchase of Dunlop tires, but he still wanted to return it??  

 

I think you have the right idea Meenman.  d2_doh.gif

If he is that pissed about it, I suppose I could help out. I think I can find some room to store it. If you pay me twenty dollars, I will take it off his hands.

"This driver is crap! I demand my nothing back!!"

So the Big O guys wouldn't take back the free driver because they didn't have enough room? How big is this driver?

 

Personally never been that upset with something given to me for absolutely nothing.

I was puzzling over what this meant - how is someone your cousin but not legally? I've heard the saying, "He's like a brother to me"... is it like that only not quite as good? 

 

So then I went to work on figuring out why a tire store is giving away golf equipment.  Didn't get very far.

 

So then I tried to figure out how you reconcile "dropped a few bucks" on a driver with "they offered to throw it in, no strings attached".

 

It was at that point I realized I should probably get back to my cat herding since that would be easier than deciphering this post.

Yeah, it drives me absolutely crazy when my drive goes 269 instead of the normal 270 I'm used to. c1_cursing.gif

I can't be reasoned with when something I get for free only performs 99.7% as well as something else I paid full value for! I mean is this 'Merica or what? Some kind of communist scheme if you ask me!

As for Dunlop sports gear it is shit. Mike Ashley's Sport Direct chain have bought up a load of formerly reputable brands and taken them to the bottom end of quality - Slazenger, Dunlop, Lonsdale and various others - including Newcastle United.

 

He's done some good deals though. Westwood and Clarke wore the brand for free but get a huge bonus if they win a Major, good for Clarke not so much for Westwood.
