Garage sale gold

22 posts in this topic

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

WOW, crazy good deal!

Edit* mind you, I probably couldn't hit those at all, but I'd still buy 'em at that price and wait till I can hit them

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

    • Go to ebay and look up the Taylormade Burner Bubble. Not much money, but seems to fit your parameters.
    • I'm a bit biased because I'm working with the folks at GAME GOLF, but I've never really had a problem with any of the tags or GG hardware once I silicone glued them in (and some grips don't need that - my PURE grips are softer than many as they're pure rubber, so they can use the help). GG tags don't affect the swingweight like the Arccos tags. That's a big one IMO. There are other reasons but you listed a lot of them. The stats and whatnot in GG will be getting better, too. They HAVE the data, after all.
    • Not how you finish a club spin, need to work on that, yo  
    • I agree with all of the others. Get a proper fitting. For me? I was using the SLDR driver 12* with a Sr Shaft. I was hitting it a good 160 to 175 yards.  I went to the Titleist Thursday event here in Sacramento. It is where Titleist gives you a free fitting session for what ever you are thinking of replacing. I wasn't thinking of replacing, but was curious. I went in, he watched me swing the club, said try this "catch the rain" (turning my hands over at the bottom of my swing). Ball went a little farther. 
      He said - here try this. Then try this. Shafts, head, more shaft information. (he brought, all, ALL, of the shafts that are being offered for the clubs) I was fitted for the 917D2 with the Blueboard S+ 70 in Regular. I regularly carry 230 yards with roll out (some days more than others.) coming in between 20 and 30 yards more. I hit the M2, Ping G, M1, King Cobra F7 (can't remember which one), ... I hit everything that Haggin Oaks had in their super shop (we call it the library - you check em out and return em). 6 months later I am still hitting it straight (no on purpose shot shaping for me) and long...long for me. (I am 55 yrs young). I hit my 3wood roughly 235, my 7wood about 220ish. Go get fit at a reputable fitting place. You will not regret it.
