Seems to have good prices and feedback.

Did a search but his name has not popped up here.

Has anyone had experience with him?

Thanks!

I bought some Oakley shoes from this seller last month. Great transaction, and communication was great. Even let me return for a different size.

No worries.

I have a order pending with him right now.  Just purchased a Ogio Grom stand bag for about $100 off ogio's retail price.  With as much feedback as he has im sure the transaction will be smooth.  I will post here though if there is any issues.

Thanks guys.  I appreciate it.  I also have an order pending..  for the black tour 2 ball blade.  It should be here tomorrow.  I haven't found a deal as good as the one I got so it's making me question it more than I probably should.  Not too worried, it's nice to have good confirmation though.

Update:

Got the club yesterday and while it didn't have plastic on the head and I think it might have been carpet putted, it looks and feels like the real deal.  Good enough to get a positive.

FWIW I bought a  club from Jacksgolf24, a fairly well known and trusted seller around here, and it arrived in the plastic a day early.  Wish that seller had the Odyssey deal. :-)

With all the negative stuff being thrown around about BST and ebay lately I feel like I should buy a lotto ticket for having two good transactions.Posted Image

Just thought I would resurrect this thread as I am looking at the Callaway razr stand bag and this ebay seller has a great price on it. My concern is that they are not an authorized callaway distributor and the warranty would be voided. Are my fears legit?

Ask the guy if he covers the bag or is an authorized retailer. I won a nike bag over a year ago from discountgolfworld and even though it was an auction they still covered the bag under warranty and sent me a new one

But isn't the purpose of buying on ebay to get a better price ?

If someone wanted warranties I'd suspect you pay the extra and go to a retailer.

Ive never once provided a receipt for a golf related warranty.  Not saying it doesnt ever happen, just that the companies dont really seem to enforce it.

I bought a new club from this seller and decided it was too short but he wouldnt let me return it. Buyer beware I guess. I wont deal with them again just because of the attitude I was given when I inquired about returning it.

Did you hit the club? His policy is quite clear:

Returns: We accept returns within 14 days. Items must be returned in same condition as received. We do not accept returns for used items or items taken out of manufacturer packaging.

I have bought from them at least six times. I have never had a problem with them. Great prices, items as described, and fast shipping. I won a new Mizuno Windlite Sweater for $4.54 plus $10 shipping and they shipped it right out.

to be fair, i ordered something from this guy... i think it was platinum NDMC's. I got a shipping notification that night and a delivery date two days later, but turns out he didn't actually ship, he just created a label. Guy is still out there, still eventually gets the product to you, if you can be patient.

That's it? No details? Hard to go on from just that.

Ebay estimated delivery dates are just that, estimates from ebay, who has zero control over when things ship.

I've bought from that guy a few times.  Got a great deal, although I forgot what I bought.  All I know is that I told a few other friends and they all bought the same thing, no problem.  Maybe it was golf balls?  It's been a long time.
