A lot of people want to buy used Nike golf clubs. How come they're in such demand? And how do you go about finding them for sale?
Why Golfers Want Them
Nike golf clubs meet the same high standards for quality and performance as the company's other sports equipment. So, I think they are in such high demand because the company's clubs stand up over time. Nike golf clubs feature cutting-edge designs, and they're made with superior materials and manufacturing methods. The quality of their construction and design means Nike golf clubs will still play well several years after the company first releases them. The fact that top professionals like Tiger Woods and Michelle Wie play with Nike golf clubs doesn't hurt their reputation either.
You can spend some significant money buying brand new Nike golf clubs. In fact, many of Nike's clubs cost more than similar clubs made by some of the other golf club manufacturers. Sometimes budget constraints mean a brand-new set is out of the question. Some golfers in this position believe they're better off buying Nike used golf clubs than buying cheaper, lower-quality clubs that are brand new.
Other golfers have a more liberal budget, but they're fond of a particular set or line of Nike clubs that's no longer being manufactured. They, too, often turn to buying Nike used golf clubs.
So, they are pretty popular. If you're one of the golfers who's looking for some used Nike golf clubs, you might not know where you can get them.
Where You Can Find Used Nike Golf Clubs
Like other brands of used clubs, you can find used them in a number of places. You may have thought of some of those places already, but you might not be aware of all your options. So here's some information that might help when you're looking for used Nike golf clubs.
Some great deals are possible on Craigslist (www.craigslist.org), eBay (www.ebay.com) and Amazon (www.amazon.com). You never know, you might find exactly what you're looking for right away on one of these sites. If you do, the price will probably be "right." It's a matter of luck when you're shopping there, though. If you're not successful right away, well, fortunately, the sites' inventories of used golf equipment change on a daily basis. The byword for shopping for used golf equipment on eBay, Amazon and Craigslist is "if at first you don't succeed, try again." If you're persistent, you'll probably find what you're looking for eventually.
Patience isn't a virtue everyone possesses, however. If you're in a hurry, consider looking online at a few sites that specialize in selling golf equipment. Some of the usual suspects include www.edwinwatts.com (Edwin Watts), Golfsmith (www.golfsmith.com), Global Golf (www.globalgolf.com), and The Golf Warehouse (www.tgw.com), and they're all reputable. I've dealt with several of them myself when I've bought new and used golf clubs. And, in addition to the sites named above, many others have great used golf clubs for sale. As with eBay, Amazon and Craigslist, you might have to check these sites more than once to find the specific golf clubs you want.
When you're shopping for used Nike golf clubs, you have several options in the "real world" in addition to what's available online. Big-box sporting goods stores like Sports Authority and Dick's Sporting Goods take trade-ins, and that means used golf clubs are sometimes available. I'm not sure, but you may even be able to check these companies' used club inventories by going online (www.sportsauthority.com and www.dickssportinggoods.com, respectively).
Flea markets, yard sales, swap meets and second-hand stores present additional opportunities to find used Nike golf clubs for sale. One second-hand store even specializes in used golf clubs. Called 2nd Swing (what a clever name for a used golf club shop!), the company has stores in various locations throughout the U.S. Their website (www.2ndswing.com) also claims to have the Internet's largest selection of used and pre-owned golf clubs, so 2nd Swing is definitely worth a shot.
If all else fails, you can also ask your friends if they have any used Nike golf clubs for sale. You never know - you might luck out.
No matter how you find your used Nike golf clubs, their quality will be the same but you'll spend a lot less money than you would if you bought them brand new.
