Help with Ping and Nike fitting system carts please!

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone! I have been searching high and low trying to find some information on these 2 fitting systems I have. Let me first say, I know very little about golf. I buy and resell for a living, and recently came across a golf store closing and I cleaned it out for the contents. I have all the displays and advertisements figured out. I will just ebay/craigslist those. However, I have these 2 fitting systems leading me to a dead end. I have no clue what to ask on these and the best way to market them for sale. I ended up listing the Ping last night on ebay with a high buy it now or best offer to see what kind of offers I would get. I don't know if it is listed to high and will just cause people to keep scrolling. The Nike on is much nicer and actually comes with some fitting shafts and all the separate cases. I would really appreciate any and all help you could offer me with these. Is ebay the best way to go? What should I ask for them? The Ping cart can easily be shipped, but, the Nike cart weighs to much and will probably be local pick up only. I was also wondering about the shafts that came with the Nike system. Should I list those separate or are they useless without the system. I don't know if they are shafts that could be used since they have no clubs on the end? I have attached some pictures, and can add more if you need. Thank you in advance for your help with this! I am so out of my element here!

I hate to say it, but other than a casual interest to someone who likes or collects Nike/Ping memorabilia, both items (including the shafts) are pretty much worthless.

Anyone who needs a fitting cart probably has an account with Nike or Ping - in which case they get one for free. If you're not an authorised Nike or Ping dealer - why would you need a fitting cart for irons you can't get? The same applies to the shafts - they only work with Nike fitting carts heads. If you don't have the Nike fitting cart heads, then you're screwed. If you DO have fitting cart heads, you're probably an authorised dealer who has a fitting cart and the shafts that go with them already....

....in which case, you have a two carts that are pretty difficult to sell. No offence, but if you really do buy and sell for a living, then it's best to stick with what you know. Did it not occur to you that any of the residual stock left in a golf store (i.e. left behind because it's not worth anything?) was largely worthless?

Thank you for your response. If i only stuck with what i know, there would be a lot i still didn't know. This is how I learn, when new stuff comes up, and i take a chance on it. I have only my time in this, so nothing really to loose. As far as it all being worthless...I've already made a nice bit of money on some of the displays and advertisement signs I've sold. These were the only two pieces I've ran into a problem with. I think there is a buyer out there somewhere who would love them. :)

Well - best of luck. The Nike system looks like a better option for someone to use to store tools in a garage or something like that. The Ping could be converted into a soap box cart with an extra set of wheels lol.

You have not stated, exactly, what is included. The carts themselves are useless. The heads and other components, depending on what year they were produced are the only value and not a lot.

I'm a fitter, FORE! Play Golf Smithing and I'd be interested in hearing and seeing what actually is included in each of the carts. Maybe even a link to your ebay store?

Depending on what you are asking I may be interested.

The new ones have come out and with @ 50 components c ost @ $ 1000.00 to $1500.00. This is a brand new system with the latest irons and drivers from company "x".

    • Good to have golfers from all over the planet here. See you around! Under the "How To..." drop down menu above, there are all kinds of things there you might want to scan through. How to create an "avatar" How to get "Achievements" (those little icons that show up at the bottom of your posts) How to quote people or other sources How to embed video. Just lots of the details about how things get done here. Since you're interested in instruction, don't miss the "Info...Instructional Content" link in the menu above. Also linked here below. That'll give you a sense of some of the top instruction threads that have been created here in the past. Lastly, you mentioned that there are lots of "tips" here- and you'll quickly find that this site does not promote the idea of hunting the internet for "tips." This site is all about finding the correct priority for fixing a swing (not always easy for us golfers to know) and then applying practice techniques to address that one thing. Then move on to the next priority. I'm not saying that I think you are one of these "tip-hunters", but since you mentioned the word, I just wanted to put it out there that there are lots of testimonies here about the futile search for "tips" on the internet and not improving much as a result of going from one tip to another.  Anyway, welcome! Here's the thread I mentioned above.  
    • Winston Salem only carries balls. The other stores are at least 1.5 hours away.
    • I agree.... my mechanics are to blame much more than my composure, as is the case with the majority of us.  If you read my comment in context of the previous comments, you'll see I wasn't claiming composure>physical at all. 
    • Revealing thread, there are varying "definitions" of what's mental and what's physical. I would have called game planning, green reading and just practicing effectively mental, along with just maintaining composure/managing pressure/stress. What's the essential difference between someone who just mindlessly bashes ball after ball at the range vs someone who practices with purpose? "The way I look at it in golf is that the mental game is a mechanism for fulfilling physical potential. Physical potential being a function of natural ability and effort put in through practice, instruction, conditioning, etc. Physical potential won’t automatically be transferred to the golf course in the form of performance. That is where a strong mental game steps in and allows the body to perform the tasks it has already been trained to do. In other words, the mental game bridges physical potential and physical performance. When faced with consequence on the golf course, the physical motion the body already knows how to perform can be hindered by doubt, fear, and anxiety. Our mind and body know how to physically execute the shot, and the mental game is required to protect that ability by warding off the potential doubt, fear or anxiety."
    • Today I came across to this video and just wanted to share it with you guys Her swing looks great!
