Getting fit is what we preach, but sometimes that doesn't always work especially with the deals you can score on the Internet.  With that in mind, what is the best blind purchase that you have made that worked out?

My find has to be scoring an Adams IDEA Pro Gold 18* with the S Matrix shaft. I had no previous experience with it and it has become one of my favorite clubs.  At 69.99 new, it was too good to pass up and a risk that paid off.

What's your best gamble?

Bought a set of MP-53's from 3Balls that were listed as in "Fine" condition for $400, they arrived and appeared to never have been hit, not a single mark on any club and had a valid serial number.

Basically the same deal. Bought my son used MP 60's from 3Balls, looked like they hadn't even been hit!

I bought my Titleist 735 CMs blind, but I knew the s300 shafts would fit me and I had them adjusted for lie when they arrived.  The Adams was a total guess as I had never hit one, but I had read some good reviews.

Best deal was a semi-blind purchase of Callaway X20 Tour irons this time last year.

In 2008-09, I dumped stiff shafts across the board in favor of R flex. I was switching irons for the first time in 14 years, and hit a variety of GI and SGI irons. I tried out X20 Tours with 5.0 rifle, but ended up buying X20 irons with Uniflex shafts (between S and R) for extra forgiveness.

X20s were OK, except a little klunky out of the rough, and not that much feel. Anyway, I stumbled across some X20 Tours on Callaway PreO, 30% off with free shipping for Christmas. I got a $220 trade in for the X20s, and ended up getting  the X20 Tours for a net $120: PX 5.0 rifle-flighted shafts, and the clubs had never been hit.

This improved my scoring on par 3 holes, but I sprained my right wrist twice the past season and started having major problems with tee shots (as in OB). My golf pro says the X20 Tours fit me well, but I need to gain control of my driver and woods.

Funny that you posted this.  I picked one up on Saturday for $20 brand new (although it has a senior flex shaft) so I will be reshafting it.  I hear this club is fantastic

Picked up a used Wishon 949 MC 4wood shafted with a stiff UST V2 65g shaft for $40. Had never hit the 949MC before but heard good things about it and I generally prefer a low profile head in my fairway woods. Something about the V2 shaft just fits my swing and I crush this club. Always dead straight or a baby draw.

The Titleist 910D2 was blind despite being told that I should get fitted and adjusted. I decided not to and it's actually the best driver I've hit.

I bought a TM R580XD off of shopgoodwill.com for $25 shipped. It's in really great condition too. I also bought a 3-PW of KC OSII and an Odyssey White Steel #1. Waiting on those to get here, hopefully those are just of good as a purchase. I only spent $150 shipped for the Driver, Irons, and Putter.

I'd have a lot of good ones being left handed.  It is hard to find what you want at the golf stores.

I'd say my best is my putter.  I have a Mizuno Bettinardi C-05 and love it.  Payed 50 bucks shipped.  I really don't see how I could like it any more.  Other mentionables are my Titleist 775CBs I got for 220 shipped in good condition, and my 5 and 7 wood G5 pings.  I had the 3 so it wasn't totally blind.

My Nike Dymo 3wood (UST S Shaft)....probably one of the most under rated 3woods out there.  It's very forgiving, beautiful off of the tee, even better off the turf and sounds great.  By far, it's the best Blind purchase in my bag.

Second place will have to be my Scotty Cameron Del Mar.

I got my White Steel #1 and KC Set today. The putter is in great condition, and the iron set was a great buy too. I'm glad I didn't go with clones as I saved some decent money buying used/old equipment
