    Typically the material for a beer can is .004 thick. A little thicker towards the top and bottom.

    I went to Dick's today to try 'em out. They had one set but it had graphite shafts. I asked to demo one and he didn't even have a demo club, soooo...

    I pulled the trigger on a set of Titleist 718 AP3s from Second Swing. 9.0 condition, 4-PW plus a GW for $770. Should be here next Tuesday.

    Now I need a new bag...

    EDIT: just bought a new Titleist cart bag for $150 from TGW.

    EDIT EDIT: I've never bought a new bag and these clubs are the closest I've ever had to buying new.

    Nice! Now you need the top part of the bag from Titleist and a new Scotty Cameron.

    My Sun Mountain Four5 stand bag was(besides consumables) the only thing for golf I've ever bought brand new.


    EDIT: Not true, I bought that one driver from Rory way back in the day. But I think that's it for new equipment.

    Driver: GEEK DCT I bought from a member here
    3w: Big Bertha that I do NOT get along with very well also bought used here
    Hybrid: TEE I bought used I think here, but not 100% sure
    Irons: MacGregors I bought used here
    Putter: Taylormade something or other bought used at a now defunct golf store in Madison

    Have any of you bought anything through 2nd Swing? I ordered those clubs on Saturday and paid extra for 2 business day shipping (so I would assume delivery on Tuesday). As of Monday afternoon I haven't received any shipping notice or even a shipping confirmation. In my profile my order says "not shipped" and the actual clubs I bought are still listed on the site for sale (same SKU number) so I am getting nervous about this sale.

    I just bought a Scotty Cameron Red X2 from them, no rush shipping, and did not have any issues. It did take a day and a half to get an email from them confirming the purchase, but it is now in FedEx’ hands and should be here tomorrow. They were a bit slow on initial contact and I ordered on a Thursday. Being a Covid Weekend purchase, you may not see anything for a day or two.

    I’ve bought a few things from them, their shipping is pretty fast. I usually have it within 2-3 days and I’m in VT. I’m sure you’ll see it tomorrow.

    Got the confirmation this morning. Unfortunately it says they will be here Thursday... so I paid $25 for two-day shipping and apparently they considered that two-two day shipping. o_O

    My Red X2 arrived today. I was impressed with their packaging, reminded me of OEM packaging with internal cardboard structure for better stability of the box and protection. Club was in better condition that the stated “average” on their web site.

    I would buy from there again, as long as I do not need it ASAP.

    Two day shipping. How long did they say it'd take to ship? Imagine how long it would have taken without the expedited shipping. lol

    I placed an order Thursday without express shipping and received it today. 3 business days. It was in Dallas early Monday morning but somehow did not make it on the FedEx delivery truck.

    In their defense, and due to my ignorance I suppose, they shipped it today and it will be here Thursday so technically two business days from when they shipped it, not two business days from when I ordered it.

    Hey, at least you're not paying for Prime Two Day shipping just to have them say, "Just kidding. Covid is Latin for 'we're taking your money anyway and shipping it when we dam well please'."

    When did you order? Their orders usually get to me in 3 days with standard shipping. Your about the same distance I’d think in the opposite direction, something doesn’t add up.

    I ordered on Saturday figuring they'd ship on Monday and I'd have 'em Tuesday. Unfortunately they shipped on Tuesday so I get 'em on Thursday.
