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

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.

Now THAT'S working for what you want. I have a friend that did a similar thing with headphones but it took him almost 6 months to liquidate them.

Liquidated 4 of my 5 push carts today. I kept them around for guests (like @TR1PTIK visiting the area) and they were taking up a lot of space along one wall of the garage. Seemed like a waste to have

So my first good deal was more of a complete accident. I had bought a Cobra King LTD Black Driver for $75 on OfferUp. It was mint and I thought it was a great deal. Came with a UST Elements Chrome sha

I could have probably squeezed more money out of the refurbed speed carts because they flew out of my garage for $60 a piece.

That's awesome! I can't imagine anyone at work who knows your golf equipment tendencies would think it wise to start a putter bidding war with you.

It was a lot of years ago when my putter stable hovered in the range of 15-20. I don't think anyone really even knew what the item was...including the last that listed it.

Purchased a set of speed blades for $150 and ended up trading them in for $240 credit a few years later. I don't know if my wheeling and dealing has gotten me deals, but it definitely has allowed me to break even multiple times

It's not my story but a friend of mine got a set of Titleist 712s for helping an elderly neighbor lady clean out her garage.

 

She was finally kicking out her deadbeat son.

Late to the thread, but the best deal I got was $100 off my Epic. It's honestly had such a huge impact on my game now that I have control over my dispersion.

Love this thread and hope that while a fair share of us are quarantined we can add to it.

I recently picked up a set of mp-32 irons on eBay for 71.00 3-PW, Dynalite Gold SL R300 shafts ... which, actually, are a good match for me. A little light but I'll take it.

Used some Bar Keepers Friend to polish them up and woo-wee.... can't wait to get them on course.  😃

Full set of Callaway Diablo Edge irons for less than $40. Those things were point and shoot. 

I stupidly sold them. Granted, I made great profit, but those things were perfect for my game.

When they first came out, I was looking at the Callaway CF16 irons. I was seeing new sets of 5-P in the $800 range. Went on eBay and saw a near new set of 3-PW, AW, SW for $695+$10 shipping. Seller was a golf shop in B’ham AL. Put them on Watch for about 30 sec., and hit BIN. Called seller. Barely used, Exc. cond. When they arrived they were even better than I expected.

Around 2002 when Ben Hogan was its original company, I found some brand new BH Apex edge forged irons for $375 online (MSRP abt $700 at the time) from a place going out of business. They were new irons for the time period. Might have helped I am left handed so finding a buyer is more difficult.

Nice!  Those irons are timeless and high quality...and to find them in LH is a big time bonus.
