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!

Member Tannerdc – Rare long neck Toulon putter

If you love blade style putters but need something with less toe-hang, then a longneck is the way to go. The only thing is longneck putters aren’t as common as they used to be, which makes this custom Toulon Garage a very interesting piece indeed.

What GolfWRXers are saying about using a 54-degree wedge for all short game duty

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the strategy of using a 54-degree wedge for all short game duty. WRXer ‘RoyalMustang’ says on the plan:

“My thinking is that time would be better spent learning to do all of the shots with a single wedge, rather than learning 2 wedge distances and feels with the limited practice time I have.”

And our members have been having their say on the subject in our forums.

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.

  • OsnolaKinnard: “I have a 50* GW that is really like an 11 iron. My 54* wedge does pretty much everything around greens and inside of 50 yards except bunkers. The 58* lobber is my ‘sand wedge’.”
  • mizunotpz: “The 54 degree is really versatile. As long as you have a grind that is easy to open up. I use 50/54/58. I can hit full shots with my 50, but I never do that with the 54 or 58. That’s 80% shots tops. Most bunkers I use the 54, think its easier to control distance with a 54 vs a 58.”
  • Munich77: “I have a PW, 54, and 60. The 54 could be all I need as I use it the most.”
  • Minarets: “My 54 degree is my go-to unless the 60° is needed for some kind of flop. I use a 50, 54, 60-degree setup but feel most comfy with the 54.”
