Let me start by saying that yes i am a vet. I have taken part in the program and have purchased a driver and putter from it. I love the clubs and have no desire to sell them.

Now - i see many new PXG clubs popping up and wonder how many are from the program. I then wonder if its within the terms to sell them. Then i ponder if its morally right to do this.

So im wondering the general thoughts around it. No judgement, or ill feelings from me. Just trying to see what joe public would think.

    Personally, I don’t see a problem with selling them once you are done with them. Now if you are just taking advantage of the program to flip them and make a buck then yeah you’re a POS in my book (not you OP, just painting with a broad brush).

    Granted I know there’s something in the PXG contract stating that you can’t sell them blah blah but once they have my money and I have their product, the transaction is over and I may do with them as I please.

    Buying and selling them with a profit motive would be very inappropriate to me. But as said above, when you're done with them, put them up for sale.

    It’s whomever’s right to do what they wish when they become owner of the object. Is it morally right to pay the manufacturers pennies on the dollar and sell them at retail mark up?

    buying to flip= needs to go back to basic training.

    once used and not a good fit= what can you do but sell/trade?

    Yea I would say buying to flip isn't in the spirit of the program and taking advantage of it which could potentially cause PXG to do away with the program or put limitations on it. Thereby potentially impacting others who were buying with no intention of flipping.

    On the flip side, if you bought them and didn't like them or were ready for something new, then I'd say that's fair to sell them or trade them in.

    No issues, you purchased them, they are yours, up to you to do with them as you see fit. If the program was/is abused, I'd imagine PXG simply limiting how many sets one may buy

    I 100% agree with this sentiment, and would extend it to people who get deals like "friends and family" discounts, or have some hookup through a friend. Use the discount, buy the stuff, and enjoy it. Once you start leveraging those programs to make a buck, you're probably not someone I'd get along with.

    Looks like there are plenty of PXG flippers doing exactly this. It’s a shame in my opinion. >

    This. If an OEM keeps sending discounted sets to an individual, they're as willing to take someone's money as the buyer is. And let's be honest -- military discounts are admirable but companies aren't losing money on 'em.

    I would bet 2/3 to 3/4 in f PXG clubs selling on ebay are from heroes program

    In most cases the physical manufacturer (if not owned by the company ultimately selling the goods) is contracted to make said item. They wouldn't even be making the item if it weren't for the actual product owner paying them to do so.

    And, the item can't be "marked up" at retail unless you market the item and essentially buy market share and pay for that mark up.

    So that's a really bad example. To even suggest that could be immoral...

    They now charge $125 an iron and charge a 20% restock fee if you return clubs so yeah if you dont like them Id definitely sell. Their business practices/pricing all over the map.

    Offering a discount for Veterans and First Responders, just a horrible business practice.

    Agree with these as well. I think selling is fine, just pass the savings on to the next person instead of trying to make a quick buck.
