Sellers Remorse!! Why did I sell them????


Recommended Posts

I understand where you are coming from but I guess I am just stubborn and not going to pay over $600 for a set I would not consider in good condition. Call me crazy but there is no way a set of JPX 900s are selling on this site for over $600 unless they are new. The 900s are about to be 2yr old model in the fall of this year. I might have to pony up some more $ and get a set of the 919s however I prefer the 900s over the 919s.

Don’t feel bad, we all did this in our youth Grizzled veterans keep back ups while testing new sets and generally have back ups for the back up’s back ups

Don't forget to change your signature.

I get that, but I don't. I personally don't see why going to pay $600 for a set of irons you don't want out of principle because the ones you really wanted shouldn't retain their value as well as they actually do. Who knows, maybe you will like the 919 more, but at the same time, if you don't, that's another $600 spent on something you didn't actually want just in an attempt to justify it. Maybe I am weird but if I want something, I pay what it costs. If I can't pay that, I save up for it. I could see if they were selling for $600 with completely worn in brown spots on the face, extremely bag chattered to the point they need to be refinished. Sure, I wouldn't buy that either. However, if they are generally okay in condition, just a little worse for wear than the ones you had....well tough cookies IMO, take your medicine and buy them and be happy :)

Adams A4 Forged irons. Probably the best irons I ever played.

They'd probably be worn out by now, but I regretted selling them for quite a while after I let them go.

Had a Mizuno Bettinardi BC7 343gm that I wish I had back. as well as a Studio Select Newport Mid Slant........

Find the best looking heads you can find on eBay for cheap that aren't crazy loft/lies. Send them into Mizuno for a reshaft and regrip and get them bent to your specs. Its like $30 a club and you cant beat that anywhere. Recently did that with some MP-5s. Cost me $200 for the heads and $225 for the reshaft through Mizuno. Sold the C-taper Shafts they came with for $125, all-in my cost was $300 for almost new MP-5s with my exact specs. Took me about 3 weeks from start to finish.

This is easy for me. Founders Club came out with this titanium fairway line called The Judge. For some reason, I had the 5 wood in that set and it was this magical club for me that I NEVER missed and it had a dime sized sweetspot wear pattern when I've never done that to any other club. It, along with it's strong 3 big brother were the very first clubs I sold online, on ebay, and I regretted it every day.

They looked like this https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/MaYAAOSwiFNdI4w2/s-l500.jpg and there really wasn't anything special about it but man I killed that thing. I swear I could hit it 250 all day long and as high as I wanted lol.

I was also skinny, had not a stress in the world, and ran a driving range and hit 300-600 balls a day :)

I finally purchased one on eBay and it replaced my TS4. Clubs had so much better feel and made it easier to swing imo

The only club I regret selling is the G25 driver I had. For some reason I sold it after getting a G30, then G400 and now G410. I look at my GameGolf stats and I hit it better than the rest, but in reality it's probably because I'm getting older vs the club. I keep most of my prior clubs or I give them to my sons. There are other things (firearms) I've learned to never sell else I would regret it. Better to just hold on to things like clubs if you can afford to.

I sold a JDM Bettinardi to someone here a few weeks back or so. The minute the money hit my account I had regret and it's not like I can't find another one down the road it was just that the one I had was in amazing condition especially at address, it looked brand new. I loved that putter despite not using it much but something was telling me to sell it so I did. Then not long after a TP Mills Handmade came up and I spent the Bettinardi money on that so good call.

I'll buy another Bettinardi blade but lefty options are limited and just means I'll be picky and always on the lookout. But don't want it to be the same like last time, buy it and never use it.

The A4 forged were my first seller's remorse. I had them in the Project X Flighted 6.0, and stupidly got rid of them for some TM MC irons. I hit them ok, but I liked the Adams better. I tried to buy them back from the person I sold them to, but he was trying to charge me more for them because of the grips he put on them after he got them from me. I eventually got a hold of some Adams CB1 irons, and played those for quite a while. I really wish Adams still made irons.

I came on here to say my old 15* Adams XTD Super Hybrid that I used as my 3 wood for a long time. I stupidly sold it for a different 3 wood because I wanted more distance, and I've regretted it ever since. I have a Cobra F6 Baffler that I've turned down to 16-16.5* at times, and that is pretty close to the same performance as that old Super Hybrid, but still not quite the same. I'm trying a F9 Tour 3 wood right now, but I'm probably going to go back to the Baffler if I don't start hitting the F9 better. Range time will help as local courses start to open those back up.

I'm a 900 Forged owner and think they are one of the all time great sets. I previously owned the 800's and have extensively tested the 850's and 919 Forged as well. I just the 900 Forged are special clubs. Would I play any worse with the 850's or 919s, definitely not, but I just love my 900 Forged. Hoping the OP can find a set soon.

Two regrets: a set of MacGregor 1025c irons with 5.5 (5.7) shafts, and a Titleist 3 wood. I forget the model of the 3 wood. But it was the size of a table spoon compared to today’s models. Must have been 12+ years back. That club would absolutely smoke a ball off the deck.

The 1025s were as close to “fitted” as clubs came back then. Local pro built them, CFMed, spined, etc. I played some good golf with them. Then some new shiny came along and the 1025s were sold away.

G25 driver. Bought another one a year later.

G400 Max. Bought TM cos all the cool kids had one. Big mistake. Very happy with current Cobra but still miss the Max and just don’t fancy the new PING. Hoping their next one will drop the moveable weight.
