What's the best deal you've ever gotten on equipment?

Aside from tournament prizes, I'm interested to see what gold people have come into through wheeling and dealing or right place right time.

 

Mine is a modest one. I sold an old driver and 3 wood on eBay and had enough to buy a newer driver, 3 wood, and hybrid without dipping into my pocket. Felt like a superstar when the boxes came rolling in.

I do remember seeing that one. The intent with this thread was to focus more on wheeling and dealing or "working" for the equipment instead of "finding" the clubs.

Got a deal on Pro Modus3 Tour 120 shafts for a set of irons. Guy gave them to me for free in exchange for a review of the fitting and his location on another website!

I had access to all of the major OEM clubs "at cost" when I coached HS golf. All clubs were 1/2 off! Crazy!!

Your original post says "...or right place right time"...like finding something cool in a thrift store.

 

Perhaps you could focus your intent.

Bought a used set of KBS C-Tapers off ebay (4-pw) for $120.  Came in and all 7 had bent tips so sent pictures to KBS and they sent me a brand new set.  Then went back to the ebay seller and golf half my money back for selling bent shafts.  So ended up with a full set of brand new KBS C-Tapers in S+ for about $60.

That's a great score for you although I'm sure it was a pain in the butt dealing with the correspondence. Good guy KBS stepping in and doing the right thing even though it wasn't their fault.

When I first started golfing(a whole 2 years ago) I borrowed my uncles OLD set of callaway big bertha irons 3-pw. He eventually gave them to me. So when I decided to buy a "new" set he said I could do whatever with them. I put them on eBay and made $145. Paid for half of my "new" irons.

Other than the deals I used to get when I worked at the golf course.  Had a friend that worked at Calloway at the time, got me a FT 5 for $150.  Other than that scored some pretty good deals on Ebay.

I found my most recent set of gamers on eBay after searching for literally years.

 

Adams Idea MB2 (5 Plug) Raw Finish 3-PW. Minty condition, tour van blueprint build with Matrix Program 130s - $500 shipped

 

All funds were generated from purchasing 10 beat up Sun Mountain Speed Carts for $120. Gave them all a deep clean, fixed the flat tires and replaced a few parts. Sold them off for $600 so my new set of MB2s only cost $20 out of pocket.
