If you're looking for used clubs, balls or other equipment, Callaway
used golf equipment is one of the best brands you could choose.
Callaway is one of the world's most highly regarded golf equipment
companies, and its products are well known for their high quality,
advanced materials and sophisticated technology.
Take Callaway golf clubs, for example. Together with PING and TaylorMade, Callaway is a member of the "Big Three" in club making throughout the world. Callaway clubs are played by many top professional golfers, including Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els, to name just a couple, but they're also extremely popular with amateurs. You could say exactly the same thing about Odyssey putters (Odyssey is one of Callaway's companies) - they're played by many top pros, but they're beloved by amateur golfers too.
Callaway golf clubs typically retain a higher percentage of their original value than many other brands, so you may pay a bit more for them than you would for some other brands. In fact, you might pay more for a gently used set of Callaway clubs than you'd pay for brand new clubs made by some of the other golf club companies.
Or, maybe you're looking for some top quality golf balls, but you don't want to pay $45 a dozen. Used Callaway golf balls can fit the bill perfectly.
Of course, clubs and balls aren't the only types of Callaway used golf equipment you can buy. In fact, you can get just about any type of gear you want. Callaway makes it easy to buy certified equipment because it operates a site specifically for that purpose. Called Callaway Golf Pre-Owned & Outlet (http://www.callawaygolfpreowned.com), the website offers everything from used clubs and head covers to pre-owned Odyssey putters.
Because of its quality, this is almost always worth the extra expense that might be involved. But there are plenty of ways to buy used golf equipment in addition to Callaway's own website for pre-owned stuff. Some of them might pop into your mind right away, but you might not be aware of some of your other options.
Amazon (www.amazon.com) and eBay (www.ebay.com) are two of the most obvious places to look for Callaway used golf equipment. If these sites don't have what you're looking for at first, keep checking back because the equipment up for sale there changes frequently.
Many other websites also offer good choices. While you're looking on these sites, remember that you're looking for a specific brand, so you might need to check back a few times before you find exactly what you want. Sites like Golfsmith (www.golfsmith.com), Edwin Watts (www.edwinwatts.com), Global Golf (www.globalgolf.com) and The Golf Warehouse (www.tgw.com) sell used golf clubs on a regular basis, and their inventory will often include at least some Callaway used golf equipment. Dozens of other websites also offer Callaway used golf equipment, so you can use your favorite search engine to find what you want. Some websites even specialize in selling used balls, including those made by Callaway. A couple of examples include Golfball Nut (www.golfballnut.com) and Knetgolf (www.knetgolf.com), although there are many others. Typically, sites grade the condition of the used equipment they sell, so you won't be taking a shot in the dark if you buy online.
Some people would rather shop for Callaway used golf equipment in person, however. Look in sporting goods stores (some take used clubs as trade-ins when they sell new clubs), flea markets, swap meets, yard sales, and second-hand stores.
Your friends are another possible source of Callaway used golf equipment. When people get new clubs, they often don't know what to do with the old ones. They're too good to throw out, but they're not going to be used. Most end up being relegated to the garage or basement, where they make fine dust collecting devices. But you might know someone who would be happy to sell the Callaway clubs they're replacing when they buy new ones. And they'd almost certainly give you a pretty good price. So, if you know someone who plays Callaway equipment and is buying replacements, don't hesitate to ask if they'd be willing to sell their used equipment to you.
Callaway makes top-notch golf equipment but it can be expensive when it's brand new. Fortunately, Callaway used golf equipment can be significantly less expensive but still give you the same type of quality.
