Used R11s TP. What's it worth!?

Recommended Posts

jshots    30

I've been offered to buy the demo Taylormade R11s TP club from the local course I play for 300$. It's the one with the 5 adjustments on the bottom. It has some scratches on the bottom, but the face is in perfect shape as is the top of the club. Since it's a demo, I think it's gotten a fair amount of use. I hit the thing absolutely brilliantly when I have tried it.

Is this a deal I should jump on? I don't even use my current driver because the shaft doesn't fit my swing speed and i'm inconsistent with it. I'm asking because I'm not too knowledeable on how much a used club like this would go for, I don't see many of them for sale used yet I guess since it's such a new model and I wanted some opinions.

Seems a bit steep if you ask me. Dick's offers deals throughout the year where you give them ANY club (the oldest crappiest one you have) and you get $100 off. So you can get a BRAND new one for $300 if you find the right discount...

$300 is a bit high... according to the PGA Value Guide (http://valueguide.pga.com) the resell value is about $250 (not to be confused with the trade in value which is between $125 and $165 depending on condition).

Oops... that is for the regular R11s, the TP version has a resale of $350 so it is a pretty good deal (trade in value is between $185 to $220).

Oh that thing is useful, I'm extremely unknowledgeable when it comes to equipment. He bought it for cost, any idea to figure out what that would be? He apparently was trying to get just the r11 and accidentally ordered the most expensive TP model so hes trying to sell it. I imagine i could talk him down a decent amount but hes a nice guy for offering and I don't want to rip him off.

Not sure if you saw my edit to my first post, but the TP resell is $350 so $300 isn't a bad price if you hit it well and it's in good condition.

$20 is too much if the club doesn't fit you or work for you.

I'm sure you know it, but it bears mentioning.

    • There are plenty of threads here about putting.    3 keys to better putting If you want to work on the starting line, buy a metal yard stick with a hole on one end and practice putting the ball down the yard stick.   
    • Honestly, I feel like I'm hitting a little of everything.  When at the range off mats, I tend to graze the bottom which I can tell from the feedback of the rubber tee's.  When on the course/grass, I tend to top the ball.  I have noticed my heel shots as the ball direction is unmistakable.  Off to the left, sharp and extremely short and low.  I hit far better shots with my Hybrids than almost any club.  Then my wedges, then irons.  Driver, the least well.  I think I'm trying too many setup and swing techniques almost trying too many corrections.  I over pivot a bit and struggle with stable feet tending to come up on the ball of my left foot.  I played baseball for nearly 14 years so I'm trying to keep from feeling like I'm stepping (or want to step). So, my next real question... is it worth it to try and replace the shafts if the manufacturer ignores me?  I never really hit the GBB as I'd just bought it.  The XR16 definitely felt the best, went the longest and gave me the most confidence.  The Ping G SFT, I also didn't hit more than a few times but I enjoyed it.  I'll try and post some pics of the leftovers and driver murder scene.  "Driver-homicide" is going to be my new nickname.   Thanks Lihu!  
    • Hello guys I've always struggle on short putts and it is why I'm here. Well, when I'm witha shot putt, I realized that my backswing is not Ok, I do not feel that the line stays correct, it seens that my hand shake. There is something that I can do? Change my putting grip?   Thanks
    • Single-digit in two years is ambitious for me, but I'll see you guys in 2021.  
    • I had a buddy film a few drives during my round yesterday.  I am still diving down towards the ball with my head.  No idea why this is still happening, but it does not feel as if it is happening while I am swinging.  Plane seems a little better, but still very erratic. I got the first one off the toe. Started right and stayed right.  The second one was better contact but pulled left.
