  1. Yup.. confirmed that DD doesn't sell 0211. DD did do Gen 2 0311 before for $89 per. I still don't know how they make any $ even with other lines. Shipping and tax adds another $100 to an unbeatable deal... now I actually have to think
  2. LOL.. good one.. I was scratching my head trying to figure out why they are 125 for BF when it has been 89 per for many months.
  3. What he said. Unless you are getting these for a steal, why spend 2K+ on a set of clubs that do not fit you, especially wrong flex. I tried a set of Gen2 with MMT80 knowing that it was too light. Even though they are stiff but I couldn't use them because they are just way to light. But those were a steal of price and I could pass them onto a friend (at cost) who loves them. I can't imagine trying to live with wrong weight and flex.
  4. Indeed I haven't.. and I just did. They do have a lot of Ryder Cup merchandise.. and all on sale as well. I am probably going to pick up some accessories like bag tags, clips and towel etc. Thanks for the pointer! ... anyone want some official Ryder Cup Team USA underwear? https://www.2ndswing.com/pv-1875821124-brand-new-100-ryder-cup-shield-imprint-boxer-brief-xl-40-42w.aspx My question still linger though. I think 2ndswing already has an eBay store, so why only listing only some Ralph Lauren items under a different account? I am loving the fact that they are starting the bids at $0.99 and let them run the course so you could get lucky with great deals. I am not calling this shady or anything negative by any means, just can't quite understand it.
  5. 2 years ago they had 30% off coupon and free shipping for Black Friday.. Wish they had that still so I can get some more giveaway items! I mean ~$100 for 6 items aren't too bad but ... yeah we were spoiled. Given the current climate, I doubt we'd see anything like that anytime soon.
  6. Indeed. When True Temper had its test panel, every shaft was shipped to us in those hard tubes. There is actually a very cheap and reliable way to ship shafts in those long boxes. All one has to do is get a pool noodle and stick the shaft through the center hole. It could even provide structural support for the box so it's not so easily crushed.
  7. So I have been looking at some 2020 Ryder Cup items on eBay as a seller gndkenny had posted some up with very low starting bids. Finishing prices has been all over the place and I won a few items unexpectedly for great prices. What's interesting is that they all came from 2ndSwing. Even the shipping notification says 2ndSwing, but nowhere in seller's profile indicates it had something to do with 2ndSwing. What I found to be puzzling\strange is that they do not list all the items. Instead they are listing them one at a time, and this has been going on for over a month. Like they had x number of one item, they would list them in separate auctions one at a time, or maybe 2 active at the same time. I am not very up to date on eBay tactics and strategies, but this seems a bit strange to me. What do you guys make of this?
  8. I suggest you call your credit card ASAP to dispute the charges to make sure those guys don't actually get the money.
  9. From the site it says the pants are water resistant. The photo of water beading and running off, it looks to be a little more than just resistant. I have a few pair of pants that are light to heavy duty waterproof and all of them are very loud. It's annoying but it seems to be a pretty common thing with that type of fabric. I wonder if that's the case here. Can you try to wet the outside and see how it does? Echoing what some others said.. I have been picking up some decent Layer8 stuff from TJMaxx\Marshall's at great prices, about 1/2 to 1/3 of what's on the site. I've past my 20's.. and 30's.. brands aren't as much an influence as they did before. We also know that a lot of store brands are name brands in disguise having been made from the same factory. No idea if that holds true for this brand but for the price, I have been satisficed with the Layer8 items I have seen.

  11. I guess 2K members aren't quite on the same page as 4K members yet.. LOL
  12. They might as well rename WTB forum to Pipedream land.. I stopped wasting my time there years ago. Uh it has been shocking for the past year, and it is not gonna get better with trillions of money we don't have been wasted on things that makes little sense. Except some clueless people still think it's a blurb and world will soon return to how it was...

  15. First of all, price gouging refers to when retailers and others take advantage of spikes in demand by charging exorbitant prices for necessities, often after a natural disaster or other state of emergency. Last I checked, no one was gonna die because they couldn't get one of those limited release items. Scalping is a totally different thing. As many have mentioned, if you have been here long enough, you would have seen that it is nothing new, and have been debated over and over. This really sums it up as well as anyone could put it. Of course there are still ethical exceptions to even the low volume items as some people were selling GolfWRX giveaway items like they were hot potatos, hence those were banned.

  18. Yeah something was up with FedEx in Portland around mid-Sept. My driver shipped out on 9/12.. scheduled to arrive on 9/16 but didn't show up in Portland until 9/18, Then scheduled delivery date was changed twice and had just gone out for delivery today 9/27. last week, I emailed DD asking if I should be concerned since there was no updates or delivery date scheduled. They told me they have been seeing multiday delays with FedEx and they were nice enough to contact FedEx to inquire about my package and told me that it's likely to get delivered on Monday. Update: After a day of "On FedEx vehicle for delivery", now it's back to Updated delivery:Pending So.. we are back to square 1.....

  21. yeah.. it does make quite a difference. Good thing I am in no particular rush.. but the delays is pretty annoying. It's definitely of no fault of DD.
