Online recommendation?

12 posts in this topic

Anyone have a good online recommendation for a source of new one or two year old model clubs?  I don;t ned the latest and greatest so I am looking for older models but not pre-owned.  Any help is appreciated.

^^^This. I constantly troll the Bay. I never really 'need' any clubs, so I just monitor the Bay at my liesure looking for ripe deals that I just can't pass up. You never know what you might find...recently I almost won a bid for a set of new Nike Vr Pro blades for $350, I did not have connectivity when the auction ended and got outbid by only $10 so some lucky bastard got a steal.

Just check the seller's history and approval ratings before you buy...

Rockbottom would be the best candidate for UNUSED older models.

these are all great suggestions, but they just don't match the variety and quantity that ebay has to offer. for instance:

3Balls offers a set of used Ping Rapture V2 irons (6-PW w/ 3 more wedges, making it a really awkward set) for $450. on ebay, a much more playable set (4-PW + GW) sells for $455 from a reputable dealer, and the clubs are new.

this is just a random example (went to 3balls, picked out Ping, and clicked on the Raptures - no really scouting was done to find a good example), but i would highly, HIGHLY recommend ebay over any alternative.

I hate sending you to another golf board especially since I prefer this site more, but Golfwrx.com classifieds is pretty nice and people are posting a lot of golf stuff on there.

Thank you to everyone for their feedback.  I'm looking for an iron set with either 3,4,5 or 4,5,6 hybrids and the rest regular irons.  Adams and Cleveland seem like the best bets.  But if anyone has something else to suggest . . .

Ding ding ding.  I ended up finding exactly what I wanted at Rock Bottom Golf at a nice price.  I got the Cleveland Mashie hybrid/irons with graphite shafts.  The set includes a 3h, 4h, 5h, and 6-PW irons.  It was listed at 369.99 but on some items RBG has this Name Your Price thing where you can offer a smaller amount and they either accept it or reject it.  I offered $325 and they accepted it (of course I immediately regretted not first offering $300 or some lower amount).  I also ordered a Cleveland Mashie 3W and 5W, ($70 bucks each) but they didn't have the Name Your Price option.  For now I'm gonna stick with my current driver, wedges, and putter.  My driver and my gap wedge are Cleveland brand so I guess I am now a Cleveland guy.  But I still won't root for the Browns or the Indians, LOL.

(Note although I got these clubs at RBG and recently talked about the great deal I got from them for a bulk purchase of Gamer v2 balls I have no affiliation with RBG except as a customer.)

eBay. I bid as a lark on a set of Ping S56 irons. 5-P. regular flex graphite and blue dot which is what my current G15's are. Won the bid at $310 and got them this week. You can't even tell they were hit, they look brand new, the guy who bought them couldn't hit them and decided to dump them. God love him.

Not really.  Those are steel shafts, I got graphite.  And he graphite shaft Cleveland uses is one of the reasons I wanted those clubs.  I looked pretty hard at ebay and did not see a better deal there for the exact thing I wanted, and since I will probably keep these clubs for 10+ years, as I did with my last set, I wanted exactly what I wanted.

    • For those who don't show clubs in your sig line. I currently carry: 1-3-5 "woods" 2-SW (mid 90's loft angles, unlike stronger modern lofts) Putter I probably don't need the 5W, and I'd like to try a hybrid or two. Some day...  
    • Ok thanks. I feel like I am stuck right between reg and stiff. Hard to tell though as the last time I hit stiff flex in my irons my ball striking wasn't as good or as consistent. I play stiff flex in my driver, 3 wood and hybrids but that's mainly for consistency. I've always had a high ball flight since I started playing golf but lately it's become ridiculously high. Do you guys think moving over to stiff flex would help with lowering the ball flight.

      http://www.gamegolf.com/player/roamin/round/1613273 Beautiful (and hot!) Florida sunshine, four rounds of golf, and $20 buck on skins. Great weekend! Highlights were, first and foremost, the 39 on the front nine this morning (a personal best), and the amazing par, birdie, par finish to the day.
    • Four rounds this weekend, two on Saturday and two on Monday. Shot 89, 90, 84, 91. Today was skins day and luckily, my highlight round came this morning. The front nine was just awesome, shot 39 with six pars and three bogeys. Then got stupid on the 10th after the first bad drive of the day and hit a tree, twice (well, different trees ), and made triple. Three more pars and nothing worse than a single after that, to finish with an 84. Fifty cent skins, plus extra skins for birdies, and low score on front, back, and overall for each round. I was up by 20 skins on the 18th in the second round when we went double or nothing.   I hit my longest drive of the day, at 274 yards, with a perfect angle left to the par 5 green. Then hit a perfect 3W and ended up 6 feet off the front-left edge of the green. Thinned the pitch-shot a little and it rolled about ~15 feet passed the hole...two-putt for par. My buddy had hit a tree with his 3W (bad angle off the tee), and finished with a double. $20 bucks! Cha-ching! What a great weekend! 
    • Austin had a great swing but other than the "macro" moves I don't see many similarities to DJ. - Austin had a slightly weak or neutral grip, DJ uses a strong one
      - Austin raised his left heel on the backswing 
      - DJ has a much more flexed lead wrist on the backswing and downswing
      - Austin goes into right pelvic tilt and with more axis tilt on the downswing where DJ maintains left pelvic tilt longer
      - DJ is more rotational while Austin had more "leg drive".
