 What's the best deal in YOUR bag?!

Golf is expensive...I bet a lot of us get a bit sad when we see the price tag of new clubs in retail stores. Most of us probably can't justify spending ($500-$1000) on a stock or custom fit club or much more for a set of irons, but it is amazing what deals you can find on the internet! Personally, I haven't bought a "new" club in years, but you'd never know from looking at my bag.

So, I'm curious... what are your BEST finds from second hand sources like kijiji, ebay, globalgolf, secondswing, etc. that are in your bag? If you picked up a Scotty at a garage sale for $15 you win 😶

My Top 2:

  • Taylormade P790 UDI 2i - KBS Hybrid 80S Shaft
    • My pride and joy🥰...Picked this beauty up Sept 2019 from globalgolf.ca ($130 CAD taxed+shipped). Listed as "value" condition, but I SWEAR it had the plastic on it🤯
  • Cobra F9 Driver - Black & Yelow (9 deg) - Fuji Atmos Black TS 7X - No Headcover
    • Purchased Feb 2020. Bought from globalgolf.ca ($215 CAD taxed+shipped). Listed as "value" condition, but there is NO CHANCE it had ever been hit.🤯

What's the best deal in YOUR bag?!

Those are good finds man!

Mine would have to be my bomb dropper of a 3-wood....  PXG 0341, PXG for Heroes ($127, shipped to my house)  Crazy long and accurate once adjusted and still pretty forgiving!

I paid $500 for my P790s (4-AW) with recoil F4 shafts. Sold the shafts for $180 (minus $10 for shipping), bought some Ctapers for 120. So ultimately paid around $450 for my irons.

Unreal! I am playing Mizuno 825 Pros with the stock S300s in them (off the rack).

🤔 Been thinking about getting them (and my P790 2i) fitted and reshafted with something stiffer and heavier for a while now.

Any advice on where best to look for iron shafts?

I switched from S300's that I had in some Mizuno 919F's. The Ctaper 120S feels stiffer, more girthy lol.
I like them a lot more but then again I did also switch to the 790's which I think are a smaller head as well. It's probably all mental.

Amazing - I'm waiting to find a steal on the TM Spider X Copper now...

The 3 items I've seen purchased in "value" condition all turned out to be mint. I don't know how globalgolf evaluates their clubs but I am not complaining one bit 🤪

Titleist DCI oversize irons 3 iron - gap wedge, great condition even after 8 years of use. Dad got them for me in college for $50. I bought the sand and lob wedges from the set separately and they cost more than the rest of the set. I love these things. Feel and hit just as good as anything selling for $1000.

I'm always cautious of the things on 2nd swing and GG as most of them don't show very detailed pictures, they just describe what condition they think they're in.

My best value purchase was a brand new flat stick. Cleveland TFI 2135 8.0 counterweighted 2 years ago for like $150. 
 

Excellent quality, feel and alignment in a blade. Finally did a basic fitting and found I needed a counterweight. Fantastic value for the technology and the copper milled face look is killer. 
 

Help me out with some likes - trying to get out of the recruit status. Thx!

I think second swing does a better job with the pictures are usually the actually club ... GG is just stock photos .. it’s always a roll of the dice though with anything used

@Nolan220 You buy from them, or play their outings?

Got some great Greyson pullovers  really cool. They sent me this “thank you” package. Very smart and cost-effective marketing.

You can never say no to stickers and coozies!!!😂

I forgot, I paid $30 for an Orange Whip trainer. Not as good as my irons steal but still a solid deal.

Picked up a used Callaway Rogue sub zero with stiff shaft and midsize grip, which were fitted for me, for only $150. Club was in great shape.

Best deal I found was definitely an Odyssey Metal-X milled #2 putter I found at golf galaxy. It was used but it could have easily passed for brand new. Even had a weighted Super stroke grip on it. Walked out the door with it for less than $135. Ended up using it for the season and re-selling it for more than I bought it for

Was looking at picking up a 60 degree Hi Toe, but found a deal for a 56 and 60 with Modus 120 shafts (same as my irons) for $100. Basically brand new. Put the 60 in the bag immediately and had plans to sell the 56 to recoup the lions share of the original purchase price, but it beat out my existing SW as well. Was very happy with that deal.
