Used Wedges Question

I had never been a fan about buying used golf clubs until I started posting in this forum (yes mates, it is your fault :D). I've bought some stuff and the results have been great. Now I'm in the market for some wedges, but I'm not sure about the difference between buying used and new. I've been finally offered a couple of CG14s like the ones I'm looking for, around an 8/10 condition for about $80. New they go for $109.

What real difference would grooves make in a used wedge from a new one? Is it worth thinking on buying new ones? How "much longer" would a new wedge last from an 8/10 one?

Thanks mates....

$80 for both? With wedges, I like to see them or at least really good pictures. It takes the average player a while to wear one out but I wouldn't want to get something someone has used to practice a ton with. Might as well just spend the extra $20 for a new one.

Hehehehe No, $80 for one of them, instead of $119 ($109 plus shipping). I've seen them. IT seems they come from a good player since the only "used" part seems to be the exact center sweet spot. EZRA, if I take some pictures would you mind looking at them and giving me some advice?

Why buy used when you can get a new one for $20. M-Series Milled Wedge Club Pak


1. I have played the CG14s and thought they were awesome
2. My experience with cheap wedges hasn't been the best, and I doubt your recommendation would be any different.

Thanks anyway

I've built a few different Maltby clubs and can tell you they are quality components. Don't let the price fool you - they're just spending less on marketing and don't offer a camo version :)

I had an all Cleveland bag when I joined this site - having done some research, it's now almost completely component

If you can actually see wear in the sweet spot, like that circle ballmark, I'd pass. That means the groove edges are flattened out. Either that or offer him less money. $80 is a little steep each. I could find them for under $100 new I bet and possibly with the shipping included.

I buy nothing but used wedges, normally pay $15-25 each for them from GG or Nevada Bobs.

Son-in-law recently bought two Mizzy "T" wedges. One was new and we couldn't even tell it had ever hit a ball. The other was 9/10... you could tell it had hit a few balls, but really could have passed for new. He paid $35/each on ebay. $80 each sounds a little high for used wedges.

I looked in Global Golf for example, and the price is around $70 for them. You have to realize I don't get the awesome used prices you get in the U.S....

Mates, what about this Ebay item here:

Cleveland CG14 Black Pearl 54* & 58* Standard Bounce - eBay (item 180352023579 end time May-29-09 18:35:20 PDT)

I think its a good deal; what do you think? Fakes?

Looks legit. Seller has 100% feedback for over 2,000 transactions.

BUT, seller only ships within US. Did you ask if he would ship outside? how much was the shipping quote?

Both of my Mizuno wedges were bought used and other than some slight nicks on the clubface, there was zero wear on the grooves when I bought them.
I bought them on Ebay and paid about $50 for each of them. When using a premium ball, my shots take 1 hop and stop dead in their tracks; so Id say the grooves are far from worn out.
