    Thanks for the grammatical assistance.
    No problem.
    You should also consider shaft upgrades(could add $100+), headcover (~$20), and tool (~$10) inclusion when looking at a driver.

      Agreed. Bought Taylormade SIM driver headcover and wrench combo with intention of putting together Sim Max D type driver head with Fujikura Pro shaft.

        A few years ago I bought a used set of Ping s59 irons from 'veryold' poster here, for $200, which was a fair price at the time. At the start of this season I upgraded my irons ( Ping i500s), so was left to sell the old ones. I was happy if I got $150 after using them for a few years. Sold them within hours of listing for $350. Madness
        Had the 58s and 59s after i3+ blades. Imagine the i500s are butts.
        I like my golf clubs purdy and women fuggly.

          I want the i500’s but can’t justify their price point. Currently going back and fourth between S58’s and eye2+ depending on how I’m hitting the ball

            Not sure what "butts" means, but the i500s are swet in both play and looks, very happy.

            Paid $1,050 all in, works out roughly half retail, for 4-PW on global golf, mint condition, take the s59s $350 off that for a net $700, happy bunny here.

              Meant to type butter.

                I lol'd at that one!

                I personally don't think a head cover and wrench add value to a sale, it came with the club.

                and I think most sellers and buyers here understand the value of an upgraded shaft, so its not suprising when the price is more when there is a premium shaft in there

                  I came across a ping rep at hidden lake last year and tried out a few irons and fell in love with i500s. Had to have them

                    Dude - I’ve hit them at golf town many times - in the power spec lofts - I’m sure they will make their way into my bag at some point 🤙

                      I agree with the original post, people list for more ridiculous prices on this forum than anywhere else I look for second-hand clubs. Kijiji is much better for finding reasonably prices clubs than here

                        It’s irrelevant what you think. People will have to pay more when the headcover and tool is included vs not included.

                          True. Is added value.
                          Have had to buy headcover and tool and after the purchase was more headache than neccessary .

                            I for one love the posts where sellers are looking for exorbitant prices for used clubs and don't even bother to post pictures. They then proceed to bump the post 20 times and can't seem to understand why their clubs aren't selling.

I'm primarily a retro- player and vintage-collector. I've now confined my searches to secondhand shops like Goodwill, Sally Ann, Value Village whose vintage prices are realistic and where, if you know your stuff, the occasional gem can be found. I walked out with a near mint 8802 Wilson a week ago for $3.50 plus tax.

                              these youtubers have started a trend.

                              That flea market was insane. I'd buy them all. Re the second hand shops, I picked up an old ping putter and ping k15 hybrid for $7 each. Sold both for $50 each. Sweet. Then picked up six Adams Tight Lies - mostly original - for $95. I'll fiddle with them until my bag is set. But I do regret selling some stuff at pre-covid prices. E.g., M2 iron set for the $275 I paid. Scotty putter I picked up for $75 at a Play it Again for $175. The buyer said he would have paid more. Now the Play it Agains, and a buddy's pawn shop, have nothing for stock.

                                Two summers ago, my then 16-year-old teenage son expressed an interest in joining me on the course (this made my big papa heart swell) but he found the “extra clubs” in the garage didn’t really suit him — most have oversized grips because I’ve got some arthritis and can’t really use standard size, so obviously I understood where he was coming from.

                                Anyway, a week or so later I popped into the local Salvation Army store in St. Catharines and found a complete 3-PW set of forged MacGregor M565 V-Foil irons that were absolutely pristine. Rifle 5.5 stiff shafts. Damn good chance these puppies had NEVER been hit. Not a mark even on the 7 iron.

                                Price? $2.50 per stick — $20 for the set. And there was a Tiger Shark putter for $3.99, so for roughly $25 I had the kid well on his way.

                                And yes, my son absolutely loved them. He’s 18 now and I’m sure he’ll experiment a lot in the future, but as of right now he refuses to part with that $20 set of irons.

                                Having said this, thank God he found other sticks in the garage that he liked and all we had to pay for was regripping. This can be a ridiculously expensive game to get into if you’re a young man on a limited budget, and I agree wholeheartedly with the posters who point out the absurd prices some sellers put on used equipment.
