So I recently switched back to my prior set of clubs, Wilson Ci9's, putting the Cobra Amp Cell's to rest for the winter. Now the Amp Cells weren't bad but I wasn't hitting well (my swing mostly) so I figured the more forgiving irons would help during the winter. And based on a couple rounds of golf, I liked what I had seen. i hit a number of nice iron shots, long and mid-iron shots, on to greens with results like I would like to have more consistently. Well...for a while I've been wanting to get my hands on a set of the next line of the Ci9's, the Ci11's, but last year those were up above $500 so I never bit. I have been watching Globalgolf but they have had absolutely 0 sets of these show up since I started watching. I recently looked at a couple sets on Ebay and emailed a guy after one set didn't sell..twice. I made him an offer he didn't respond too, just $5 less than he relisted them on Ebay this last time. Anyway, yesterday I saw another seller selling a set of the irons I wanted and they just started their bidding at like $20. yes, $20. So I put it in my watchlist and today was a little surprised to see the price only up to $85. So knowing I would be busy tonight, I put in a max bid of $120, expecting to get an email that I was outbid. But I was surprised to get the email saying I had won the bidding at my $120 price. To me, for clubs less than 2 years old, that's a steal. Now it'll be interesting to see what condition they are in as the description said they were only a single-owner clubs and used for one season. But he could have played them a lot, who knows. Anyway, for $120 I can probably get most of my money out of them if I resale them if I don't like them.
So they should arrive sometime next week if the weather doesn't get in the way...lots of snow up north. But I'll let you know what I find when they arrive.
