Are the flippers getting worse?


Recommended Posts

Has the users who flip equipment and accessories gotten worse in the past year or is it just me?

 

I use to browse constantly to buy, sell or trade. And now, it seems to me, it's just constant flipping of whatever just got released. Starting to suck the fun out of the hunt for a new to me project.

So the person reselling golf gear, pocketing tens or maybe hundreds of dollars, is a low life. And the other person reselling real estate, pocketing tens of thousands maybe millions of dollars, is an

I don't mind flippers IF that means I can get a deal below retail. nothing wrong with someone making an extra buck...

 

the flippers that are buying a limited item and reselling at higher than retail for the purpose of making a buck, that don't have any intention of using (Jordan shoes, especially Jordan Golf shoes). Those are the ones that annoy me.

Is flipping golf equipment here really that big of a racket? Other than those that have access to special pricing and just game the system, making a profit selling here is a hustle I don't have the energy for.

 

To the OP - I personally don't notice and am not bothered by it. It doesn't really affect my BST experience. If it's something there's a market for at a price others are willing to pay, then have at it. If it's within the rules, I have no business telling grown folks what to do with their money.

Just because people are trying to flip doesn't mean they are successful. The markets shift for various stuff. Tyson Lamb is a good example, his stuff was super hot last year and a flippers' paradise but that market has cooled. Which is great if you're just now discovering him and want to build a collection, go find those guys that thought they'd make a mint but are now just wanting to unload. You might be surprised what kind of an offer on the BST and elsewhere will get accepted.

The Jordan flippers, lol, yeah I bought these with the intent of using them, but blah blah blah, how about this, I'm a flipper and here is what I'm asking for them. Why not just be honest?

 

Then they would be skirting the "personal use" rule. Much like when the BST was flooded with the Ross Nike shoes ads. Which the mods put a stop to. At a certain point users are not using the BST for personal use. Their "side hustle" is breaking the rules set forth by the owners/mods.

Made me take a look at my bag, lol. 2015 is my newest club model.

I really don’t get the Jordan shoe craze. I personally think they are hideous looking.

People do realize that flipping is what commerce is, right? Buy something at one price, sell it at a higher price, keep the profit.

 

Every single store youve ever seen is doing the exact same thing.

 

I read a post in the jordan thread about how they would rather pay the store the inflated price above retail than the flipper. I have to agree. I have no problem supporting someone who has made an investment in a brick/mortar store or an online presence. Let them make more money because they putting in the work and risk for financial gain... not the flipper.

Yes, and its not just golf, its everything

 

It's the so called "side hustle"

 

Yup. Tons of clowns out there these days trying to make a few bucks buying hyped products from various hobbies they arent even a part of.

 

Pretty funny.

I'd actually love to see a "new" section on the BST for the people buying up all of the Swag covers, Jordan shoes, Scotty headcovers, Lamb Poptops, etc.

 

I'm not anti-commerce, and more power to you if you got in on a limited release and want to make a buck off of those that didn't. But, there's no question that these items aren't stuff that was bought with the intention of personal use, they were purchased with the express intent to flip on the BST.

 

tl:dr separate sections for used gear and new gear would be cool.

Yeah, don't help another member out by selling them a pair at cost from Ross, but feel free to make $200 on a pair of Jordans. Captures the true spirit here now!

Like the recent ad, dude that bought size 8s, looking for a trade for size 13s (because you know, size 8 he found out, didn't fit him)..... and selling them for $400.

 

GTFOH.

Agreed.

Wasn't there some KSig 'flipping' a couple years ago and now I assume it's whatever else is a "must have". Like Teslas or Cabbage Patch Kids back in the day.

They're not flipping insulin here so if someone wants to take a punt and go through all that hassle for a few extra dollars, fair play to them.

Seems like a creative solution to a problem - "I wear size X, but this sick sale is only on size Y. Dammit!" But you buy the size Y and sell them nearer to full price, so you can realize your dream of buying those shoes in size X.

 

I wish I were this enterprising. Unfortunately, I don't have the motivation required to invest this much energy into buying golf shoes. (Ugly ones at that.)

Doesn’t bother me. I like the Jordan golf shoes because they look like my basketball shoes from high school/college, but not enough to spam click reload to try and buy a pair. Tbh I wouldn’t pay retail for them either, much less flipper prices.

 

Makes me wonder if it is really worth your time, energy, and being viewed as a parasite to maybe clear $100 after paying tax and shipping to get them, then PayPal fees and shipping the other way. Depends on your situation I suppose.

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
