Today from the Forums “The best $25 decision I’ve ever made”

Published

on

Today from the Forums we take a look at WRXer, AdamStoutjesdyk, who has managed to score himself a classic Ping Karsten Anser for the sum of just $25. Per AdamStoutjesdyk:

“So I was scrolling through eBay because I’m an absolute degenerate and I came across this BEAUT for $25 buy it now with free shipping, it’s everything I’ve been searching for without spending $400 on a refinished Tei3.”

Our members – who are all in agreement that the deal is fantastic – have been discussing the find in our forums and sharing their own experiences of finding deals on eBay.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • MountainGoat: “In my experience, those old PINGs are magnificent putters if played with lightweight, old school grips. Modern 80+ gram grips throw off the swing weight too much.”
  • Davidv: “Great find and an absolutely fantastic deal.”
  • 3puttsRLife: “Good find. I’m an eBay club hoe from way back. Picked this up for $30 few weeks ago. 85020 ping pal.”
  • Valtiel: “The Wedgeworks 58* K-grind in my signature was listed for like $36 on eBay, easily the best deal I’ve gotten I think.”

    When I was 16 I was struggling trying to find a putter that would slow down my stroke. On eBay was a seemingly untouched Ping lil’b 39” putter. For those who don’t know, it’s a center shafted putter with the smallest of offsets at then bottom of the club. I couldn’t really get used to the longer shaft but I loved the feel of the putter. Went to golf mart and knocked it down to 34” and this heavy Frankenstein putter has been in the bag for 13 years!

Favorite brand of fairway woods – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been talking fairway woods. WRXer ‘New_Guy’ is on the hunt for a new 5 and 7-wood and wants to know what brand our members consider to be the best when it comes to FWs. Our members have been sharing their thoughts in our forum, with plenty of companies getting a mention.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • layrs14: “I’ve played Cobra fairways for a couple of years (F9, SZ, Radspeed) and really like them. Cobra tends to have a real crack like sound compared to the Titleist and Callaway woods I have hit. This year I tried out a TSi2 7w, based entirely on high praise for the TSi fairways and ability to adjust loft and lie, something the Cobra line lacks. Lofted down to 20.25*, and it’s been great. Epic Max is also solid as long as you don’t mind the bonded hosel.”
  • PEIGolfer: “Most consistent I’ve played through the lines has been Titleist and TEE, thus what gets that spot in the bag.”
  • Lasorcier: “I’ll go with Mizuno. I am very high on my STz 3-wood. I wish they made a 5-wood.”
  • pgatw: “Ping, hard to beat the 425 series, especially if need them set to a flat lie.”
