    Do you guys pick up any golf clubs?

    the stores around here are filled with calloway and adams clubs (what i think are the nicest looking0 and alot of wilsons and taylor made

    since there are about 7 golf courses in the immediate area i thought i'd start playing

    but the thing is there is never a complete set, its always 1 or 2 drivers or 3 out of 7 irons

    i think i can make a set out of mismatched brand drivers and then hunt for a complete set of irons one day

    what brands should look for? does that sound like a good idea?

    I picked up a complete set of King Cobra Irons about 8 years ago for $0.50 a piece. People have offered me good money for them on several occasions.

    I am probably the best golfer that frequents this thread. whatchuwannaknowbro?

    starting to play golf, or at least show an interest, is a great idea. it is one of the best social games and has really helped my (infantile) career grow

    I play taylormade TP irons with r11TP driver and r9 3wood. so my big sticks are mismatched. i also play cleveland wedges, also mismatched. my irons are 4 years old now.

    finding a nice putter in a thrift is going to be a task.

    I'm going on a hunger strike until DM7 has pity on me and sells me at least one item from that haul for less than a second mortgage on my house.

    I just woke up to find the aftermath of last night's storm that was DM7...

    "The Horror... The Horror..."
    * Where does he sell this stuff? I've been looking at both hmmurdock's (jgaryson's) eBay auctions and DM7's B&S sales threads and cannot find 60% of his badass finds. Why you no disclose sales venue? [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    With all the stuff he's found the last few months, I imagine a storage unit or two full of stuff just waiting to be listed. No way he could keep up with the listings and keep up with school. I struggle to keep a constant of 80 listings, and I have a back log of 200-300 items in waiting. He brings home at least 100 items a week on average. That's a full time job for a few people.

    Now if we could only just find that storage unit. [​IMG]

    ^^^ Your mission should you choose to accept it...

    [​IMG]
    EDIT:

    * Fair enough, I probably don't fully comprehend the logistics of keeping up with / shipping the kind of high volume that you or DM7 or some of the others on here have to deal with - I rarely go over my 50 free listings / mo. (and I don't count hitting the relist button or the addition of simple stuff like ties and belts that only take a second to photograph and write up). BUT, I've been waiting for him to offer that MMM overcoat-looking thing he found months ago and one of those dark wash Marc Jacobs x Wrangler jean jackets. [​IMG] *

    PM him for information on the jean jackets...he has an interesting proposal that in light of his boner stroganoff haul he posted last night seems about right....
