  1. And the mod explanation in the post above doesn't make any sense when it comes to Ross shoes. If buyers aren't buying them, then the shoes will disappear off the first page and eventually not be listed at all (or very rarely). If people are buying them, then what's the harm? If Ross somehow had a fire sale with $20/doz brand new ProV1s and flippers ran to the BST to sell them for $30, isn't that a win-win-win?
  2. I once bought a lot of several dozen ProV1s on eBay and they were fake. Ended up getting money back and all that so it's not a personal horror story, but was a great lesson in fake ProV1s. The boxes were shrink wrapped. I know ProV1 boxes very well and these actually felt a little smaller -- and when I put one up next to a real box, I was right. Reading around the box, there were typos, off-looking fonts and just some strange language in a few spots. These were ProV1s but the boxes even said ProV1x in the small type on the sides. As for the balls, I put a couple in my hand (heyo!) and they absolutely felt different and had a different clicking sound compared to two authentic balls. Didn't even want to hit them, so I didn't. I've played ProV1s for many years and bought/sold many, many dozens, so again the fakes were obvious to me. But I could see where these could easily be passed off as real to a casual golfer, and that's pretty scary.
  3. Yup, being banned sucks.
  4. Hmm, no. It's held up great; zero complaints.
  5. The headcovers are hideous and I don't know how folks can argue that. If they feel the putter should be kept with the original cover, fine. But I couldn't get rid of my T22 cover fast enough, though I love the putter.
  6. I know no two clubs are alike; mine is privately owned and the owner has handled all the improvements. There was no initiation fee when we joined. Maybe they're not all scams, but a lot of private clubs that are asking exorbitant fees are just doing it for the vanity. If a club is asking for $100,000 up front, then it's pretty flush already.
  7. I say the initiation fees are a scam. But memberships? Nah. I have one to a club, a social membership with no initiation, that includes 16 or 18 (I forget which) rounds a year, which is perfect for me. Plus all the range balls I want. The other golfers are by and large good guys and the tournament calendar is solid. The kids have a pool and the club does a bunch of special events year-round. It's a good deal that I can pay for just by reselling those scam $100 headcovers
  8. Dang. This was so well-stocked after the last couple PGAs, even before the pandemic.
  9. eBay, all day. Buyer pays shipping. I know eBay fees can suck, but at least I'm not picking up shipping.
  10. Yessss! I hit this hard last fall/winter, will bookmark again.
  11. Got a pair of Greg Norman shorts that I really liked, went back this morning to buy whatever they had left ... they only had one, but for $14 and free shipping it's a go. What a great sale.
  12. I think I showed remarkable restraint in buying just four shirts and a pair of shorts -- or was just lucky there wasn't more stuff in my size/stuff I liked. Always laugh at the little inventory stickers on all the stuff, new clothes get a "10" rating.
  13. Looks like it works for FJ apparel. Good find OP.
  14. Just enjoying reading three threads about bad sellers while I sit here forever BST banned, having had perfect feedback and nothing but happy customers. Carry on.
