    According to the rules, if an item has high value (Mizuno F50 fairway), then everything after that must be equal or greater value. I think the intent should be to get rid of golf items no longer wanted and not worth/interested using ebay. Just trying to do something nice to help out a fellow golfer and maybe get some good karma in return.

    This brings up a good point. What if the item you have and the item you received isn't "comparable"? Do you not ask for the item to begin with if you can't offer up a comparably valuable item?






    Okay, I feel I need to clarify the rules I wrote. What GolfBeauty says is 100% correct. The rules imply that you should not PM someone for an item if you have nothing to offer of equal or greater value.



    However, it is incorrect to say that the vaule of the item in play will always increase because, as many have done here, you can always start a new chain by offering whatever item you have of whatever value. Granted, you won't be getting anything in return when you offer the first item of a new chain, but the giving has to start somewhere.

    Why don't we have two threads, one for more expensive items like clubs, and one for less expensive items like accesories.

    Thanks for the clarification Arkstorm, so how bout those Brush Tees? 2 Yellow, anyone who wants them. Maybe someone wants to test'em out, maybe someone needs consistency in tee height? Maybe you just like'em.



    PM me first and they are yours.

    doh sounds like the community spirit is dwindling .... I have a few bits and pieces in the Uk THAT I WOULDNT MIND RELEASING / TRADING / RECEIVING GOOD KARMA ETC Heres one for starters a Mizuno tzoid 7 iron in great shape with brand new David Leadbetter training grip. Great for a beginner and good for a warm up

    how can the spirit dwendle? I thought this was Golfwrx? Also once we get one of these chains moving, the only thing that can happen to end it is that someone doesnt pony up, or knowone wants what is offered. Right?



    I thought we had like 4 chains going?
  • r7425r7425 Jr. Boomers Posts: 313
    Wow, this is a great thread! I just checked it out, and it looks to be going really well. I haven't seen anything that I've been interested in yet, but I'll be looking at it a lot more often image/biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':cheesy:' />

    So i received the Callaway, a classic club that I can't wait to hit.

    Thanks Golf Beauty!



    My turn-



    If anyone is interested, I have an Adams SC Series Faldo Titanium Driver, 9*, Neutral (No fade or draw), headcover included, up for grabs. It's a decent club, I just can't seem to hit it right. I have only used it at the range, and I don't think it's been hit 100 times. It's a solid 8.5/10.



    First one to PM me gets it.



    Please provide your name and shipping address, and please, no International shipping.



    Thanks again, and I hope this thread really doesn't die. It's a great concept.

    Yeah, funny how people lie when they move to a new city 100 miles away, and then they have no way to contact UPS to get them to forward a missing club, so they have to wait to have it returned to sender and then sent to the new address...oh wait, that did happen...good thing you are here to police everything though.

    Okie,



    I have 2 packs of Epoch tees (1 full, the other I used/broke a few, not sure how many are left) for those who are curious and wanted to try them out. It may take a couple of days (lost in my trunk of my car) to find them and send them.



    I switched to Zero Friction tees! And NO you can't have those! image/tongue.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':drinks:' />

    Just thought I'd add my .02 and let everyone know that I did receive the putter. image/wink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':yess:' /> I already thanked raehtz10 by PM, but I'll do it publicly also: Thanks for the putter. image/hi.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':diablo:' /> It's great! image/yahoo.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':idhitit:' />
