can be very dodgy buying second hand off the internet; more so than buying brand new. Most people will take some what favourable photos of the club. So if I were you I'd either stick to an honest forumer on here such as Brendy, or visit an American golf or maybe even go to your club professional and ask them what they have in second hand.

Be careful with ebay, alot of dodgy gear around. If you look around the various online shops, however, you can pick up most of last years drivers for somewhere approaching half price and they are brand new.

Would agree with murphthemog.

Golf-bidder.co.uk is an excellent site with a price range to suit all. 7 day trial, honest reviews - what more can you want if you are not sure and need help.

They also tell you how to spot fakes if you decide to go via ebay or another site.

Couldn't agree more - Golfbidder is the one. It may cost a little more than e-bay but you are guaranteed a genuine club that you can send back if you don't get on with it. Next day delivery too!!

I was at AG in Sheffield on Saturday and they had a 2nd hand 2008 Cobra F Speed at 10.5 for £85 - I developed a twitch through trying not to buy it. Daren't go back at the moment as don't think I'll be able to stop myself!!!.

AG can be good for some 2nd hand stuff(if a bit pricey so do haggle). Direct Golf also have a pre-owned section on line and they have ratings on the condition of the club (grip/shaft/head etc) and actual photos of the club on offer.

Try some out before you just buy something otherwise you may find your self looking for another one in the near future!

No discount golf shops in your area?

We have a good one round here and there is often last years drivers at atleast half the rrp

Have you thought about looking for ex demo stuff? My old man got a cobra for 95 quid from his pro.

It developed a rattle, something to do with the swing weight. Cobra took it back and he got a brand new club. He well pleased

Have a look at www.OnlineGolf.co.uk:

Callaway Big Bertha 460 for £125.00 New
Cleveland Hi_Bore £79.00 New
Taylormade R7 425 £129.00 New

Plenty of other bargains if you are not desperate for a top name brand. Good customer service too.

I agree with GB, online golf are really great, I ordered a 5 wood and sent it to my work address but put my home post code on it, I thought it would be sent the following day but they sorted it and within 2 hrs it was delivered. Also you get loyalty points, I got £4 off my last buy.
