    I was just the winning bid for a Seemore DB4 350 gram putter on eBay - $21.66 (plus $11.99 shipping).

    Many years back, we were moving to another state. I had already started a new position and my wife and kids moved a few months later at the end of the school year. When our furnishings and household goods arrived, I was unboxing everything and I noticed my Cameron JAT putter had a $10 price tag on it. I asked my wife about it, and she said she had a garage sale to get rid of "junk". Fortunately, nobody made an offer on the JAT, so we are still married.

    Picked these up for 4.99 2-PW... they are in really good shape and I have wanted a set of older blades. They actually feel really good which is a bonus




    Looks like my old clubs! I still have the one iron to that set.

    Soooooo glad that story had a happy ending!



    But then again...I wish I had happened upon the garage sale! LOL!

    I lost 3 , in mint condition TP Mills putters and a nice old Circa 62 to a garage sale under a very similiar situation.

    I now keep quite a few clubs in my locked office closet.

    Glad you didn't lose the JAT

    So I have not been able to thrift much lately but had time to stop by one goodwill today and there was absolutley nothing in the wedge,woods, or putter departments but I dug out this drop dead gorgeous SMT blade. I have never heard of this company or seen anything with this brand and I never buy single middle of the set irons but this one I could not pass up. This has to be one of the nicest irons I have ever seen, I looked high and low to see if I missed any others but this was the only one.

    Yes after doing some digging it looks like SMT went out of business maybe around 2008-2009 also a Chicago Based company so makes it even more odd I have never heard of them, but did find the 3 and 7 iron for this set on Ebay and bought them and figure it may take me a few years to find all the clubs in a set but could potentially build a great looking iron set for less than 100 bucks.

    I got one of those in a set I bought out of a pawn shop probably 15 years ago and sold it for like $300 in Japan as I recall. For some reason back around that time that particular putter was extremely popular in Asia as I recall. I flipped the entire bag as I recall for a $500 profit (I can't recall all I pulled but it was a nice flip for a kid unemployed at the time).





    I don't know if those putters still pull hard in Japan anymore but if you threw it on the Japan eBay page you might still get a nice flip on it. Nice find.

    I made my first good find of the new year today, a set of Wilson Staff Gooseneck irons, 3 through Pitching Wedge. The pitching wedge is a a little worn on the sole and there is a ding in the 5 iron, otherwise they are in pretty good shape. The Chamois grips are still in good shape. I thought maybe I would spend a little less time stalking my Goodwill's this year. But it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to follow through with that.

    I sold a set of the CB1's NIW last year. They pop up from time to time. Mike Tait was the owner and their driver heads were high quality. The 455DB (Deep Bore) was their flagship and a favorite in the Long Drive world. They have several others that will stand up to anything of their era and even today. Most notable characteristic was a grooveless face. Hurricane Golf and Diamond Tour (same entity) had some NOS for sale as components. Not sure if they still do. I know Mike coupled with Diamond Tour did co-design a couple new heads a few years ago, the SMT AF460 & the 455 V2. They're still selling to the best of my knowledge, wouldn't swear to it though. They also had some of the MB 4 & 5 iron heads, I do believe as well as a few of the CB1 & 2.

    I got that exact same set in immaculate condition last year at GW. I paid about $1.50 a club as I recall. I posted them in this thread http://www.golfwrx.c...0#entry17548588



    s-l1600.jpg





    I still have them - they were just too pretty to let go for next to nothing. And I believe they are forged???...





    Whatever the case, I got the full-swing yips a couple years ago and haven't played more than a 9 hole par 3 a few times two Summers back, didn't even play one round last year for the first time in my adult life. But just looking down at them makes me long for the days when I was a single-capper and decent ball striker.



    But I don't know if I will ever golf again and I'm only 38 years old. Sad I know.

    Pretty sure I got that exact same driver out a dumpster a year or two ago. I think I have it in the garage.

    Passed on a set of Mizuno T-Zoid Pros because it was missing the 6i. May check the ebay prices and come back in the morning.

    Found a nice set of Maruman Conductor 42CX irons, 3-SW with odd unmarked green colored graphite shafts for $18 total.



    Does anyone have any info on these? I know Maruman is a JDM brand, so I'll probably ask on that forum too.



    Also, has anyone seen this type of graphite shaft before? I'll probably pull a grip off to see if there's any markings but I like the Victory cords that are on there.

  • KaTooMKaTooM Members Posts: 1,368 ✭✭
    Whoa! The Maruman forged were high end back in the 90’s! IIRC, Curtis Strange endorsed and played them toward the end of his career.



    That shaft looks very similar to the Aldila Voodoo.

    I think Laura Davies played Maruman for quite a few yrs too.
