When I was getting into Golf I tried buying a game. I spent alot of money trying out this golf club or that ball or various putters. Obviously you can’t buy yourself a golf game but you can find a better way to find good used golf equipment. I began buying used golf clubs on eBay because it seemed like a good way to find a great price on a used golf club. If I didn’t like the club I could simply sell the golf club on eBay and try another. I tried Callaway Big Bertha golf clubs, Taylor Made golf clubs and Ping Irons. Over time I found my perfect mix of clubs and many golf clubs in my bag are still golf clubs I bought off eBay. While buying golf equipment on eBay I learned a few things that would save other golfers time and money. These eBay tips are listed below.
First know exactly what you are looking for in a golf club. Its fine to browse eBay and see if any golf equipment looks interesting but it is helpful to search eBay for exactly what you are looking for. This will allow you to focus on the best price and quality of your golf club. If you know exactly what golf club you are shopping for you can compare eBay listing after listing and get the best price. Know the specifics of your golf club, if its a driver or iron do you prefer steel or graphite shafts. What flex do you want? What degree do you want your driver to be? Being flexible gets you the best price but you may end up selling that same club on eBay when you find its not exactly what you had in mind.
Read all eBay auctions carefully. This will ensure you get exactly what you are looking for in the quality you expect. If you bid on a golf club on eBay you are obligated to complete the purchase. Be sure to check out the shipping and handling charges and take those into consideration when bidding on an eBay golf auction.
Check prices locally and online before you bid on an eBay auction. If you don’t know the value of your golf club you may pay too much. Shop online and locally to determine what the used golf club is really worth, then set a limit including shipping and handling that you will bid for. Nothing is worse than paying too much for a golf club then finding it locally cheaper. Below you’ll find excellent golf stores where you can get prices of golf clubs.
Check the feedback of eBay sellers. Be sure that the seller has had pas successful auctions. The higher the eBay feedback the better and its great if the positive eBay feedback has to do with selling golf equipment and clubs.
Use a credit card for your purchase with PayPal or if the eBay seller is a golf merchant they may take credit cards on their own. Using credit cards on eBay ensures you are protected in case your golf club never shows up or is misrepresented or damaged.
You can also find great deals on golf balls on eBay. I liked to buy my favorite golf ball in bulk and get better pricing. You can also find used golf balls on eBay and new golf balls that are rejects.
