Best Used Drivers

TaylorMade's first stab at producing a 460cc head

We applaud TaylorMade for making a game-improvement driver that doesn’t look like a Draw product. The TaylorMade r7 Draw uses extra weight in the heel to make the club attractive and more effective at counteracting a slice. Our test pro really hit the club well and commented on how he found it relatively easy to draw.

Club golfers might not completely eliminate their slice with it, but hitting the right edge of the fairway is always better than the rough! Its deep-faced 460cc titanium clubhead contributes to an extremely high MOI for greater forgiveness of mishits.

A strong and forgiving all-rounder with explosive power

The G10 was the follow-up to the hugely popular G5… which in turn was the follow-up to the hugely popular G2! It features a high MOI and so offers stability and forgiveness on off-center hits; but it also has explosive power, with the result being that long, straight drives become that much more attainable.

When it comes down to the stats Ping tour players have found the Ping G10 an average of five yards longer than their current driver. While club golfers comparing the G10 and Ping G5 have experienced a four-yard gain in carry distance and a 2 mph gain in ball speed.

Designed to help you generate as much clubhead speed as possible

Callaway worked with the aerodynamics experts at Boeing to reach a completely new threshold of club speed for more distance.

The XR 16 driver is extremely forgiving thanks to a larger shape for higher MOI, a bigger footprint, and a center of gravity that's lower and deeper. Next-generation R-MOTO Face Technology leads to more speed at every impact location, which adds more distance for all golfers.

A solid performing driver with minimal fuss

Srixon’s new “power wave sole” engages the entire sole in the flexing process at impact, meaning more power is directed to the back of the golf ball. 

If you’re prone to judging golf clubs like this there’s every chance you won’t give the 565 a second look as its amazingly fuss and thrills free. Its performance across all three testers was solid if similarly plain. A ball speed right on the test average and a carry distance a fistful of yards longer than the test average speaks volumes about the club's solidity and ability to perform for a wide variety of golfers.

A boundary-pushing fast and accurate performance driver

Our Equipment Editor Simon was the biggest fan of the M6’s speed-injected face tech, posting an average ball speed of a single mph behind his fastest (Flash Sub Zero and Ping G410) which could easily be switched on a different day’s testing. We’re not here to convince you any particular driver is best; our job is much more about showing golfers how models compare.

We’ve tested the M6 on several occasions and each time our GC Quad data has supported it being among the top two or three drivers (two-three yards of carry between all three) for across-the-board forgiveness, ball speed and carry, without chasing low spin at all costs. As the leading models are so closely matched, we feel more than ever that the choice of which driver to buy boils down to personal preference, how the driver looks at address, and the fitting you get. And for us, the M6 inspired tons of confidence.

A fantastic value-for-money driver that competes with the best

If there was any perceived performance gap between the biggest brands’ drivers and Cobra, the gap slammed shut when the F9 Speedback was born. The F9 truly is top drawer, and a very solid performer as both a low spin or forgiving driver, thanks to its movable weight tech. It looks great at address, isn’t decked out in bright colors on the crown and it sounds fantastic.

It’s also one of the least expensive premium drivers, which for us hands down makes it the best value for money. That doesn’t mean to say F9 is a budget option – it’s not. Irrespective of how much you’re happy to spend on a new driver, if you’re looking at the biggest-selling models from Ping, Callaway, and TaylorMade, you should have the F9 on your shortlist, too.

A serious proposition for players struggling with a slice

We’ve been big fans of TaylorMade’s D drivers ever since the first M2 D-Type back in 2017. We love how the engineers have come up with some clever paintwork to beautifully disguise how the face sits a little closed at address. It means the Max D is a serious proposition for any slicer (with a proper shaft fitting), not just slower-speed players who struggle with a slice.

Amateur testing is always a little hit-and-miss as we rely on a similar strike pattern with each club to produce reliable comparative data. That said, we have the SIM2 Max D down as TG Equipment Editor Simon Daddow’s second longest of the year, so if you're looking for a top distance with a draw driver, then the SIM2 must be on your shortlist.

A driver that will meet the needs of everyone from tour players to mid-handicappers

After learning about the reasoning behind the plain design (sole features affect sound), and how the Callaway Mavrik’s three-driver family is tailored more than ever to the types of golfer who’ll use them, we couldn't wait to hit this driver.

Callaway’s R&D chief Alan Hocknell told us about “spin robustness”, which improves accuracy and drop-offs (essentially forgiveness) – and the Callaway Mavrik absolutely delivered. A ball speed within 0.1mph of the fastest driver of the year (which you wouldn’t expect from a more forgiving model) and within two yards of our longest-carrying driver is impressive. But doing it while offering up the narrowest back and sidespin drop-offs (by 32%), as well as the tightest carry drop-offs (by 55%) of our whole test, is a seriously impressive performance.

Best Used Fairway Woods

Confidence inspiring for even the tightest of lies

Callaway tells us the fairway woods are the longest they’ve ever made, thanks in part to the Forged Speed Frame Face Cup that has been constructed from stronger steel. According to Callaway’s testing the clubs are at the USGA limit for a spring-like effect.

The Carpenter 455 forged cup face design is 40 percent thinner than Callaway’s RAZR X Black fairway from last year. In addition to the face design, Callaway has redesigned the internal weighting of the sole to push the center of gravity slightly forward and low, for less spin. There is also an X-Hot Pro version where the shafts are a half-an-inch shorter and lie angles are 2° flatter than the corresponding X-Hots.

Optimize your club gapping with this highly adjustable fairway wood

Cobra's AMP CELL fairways woods feature MyFly technology, meaning the 3-4 and 5-7 woods can be adjusted into 8 different lofts. This gives golfers a never-before-seen ability to effectively dial in distance gaps and manage trajectories for their individual long-game needs, as well as ground and weather conditions.

The woods are also available in the same colors as the AMP CELL drivers; silver, directoire blue, Barbados red and vibrant orange, so golfers can create a matched set or a personalized, mixed look. Other clubhead technology includes Advanced Material Placement and Cell technology that work together to redistribute weight, enabling a larger E9 Face to deliver faster ball speeds and higher MOI for greater forgiveness and longer distance.

Shafts Fujikura Fuel Graphite Shaft
RRP £189

Engineered to ensure clean, high-launching ball strikes from almost any lie

Designed with external sole weighting to make it Ping’s highest-ever MOI fairway wood, while the extreme variable thickness face contributes to additional distance. The low-profile design of the clubhead means the center of gravity is low and back for a higher launch.

The non-glare charcoal finish will keep the purists happy, while the subtle alignment aid delivers that extra bit of reassurance at address.

Cleveland Launcher HB

Excellent distance with a focus on playability

Price: £71.99
Cleveland reckons by removing all adjustability and simply focusing on speed and playability they’ve hit the jackpot. A Hi-Bore crown lowers and deepens the center of gravity, Flex-Fins in the sole direct more energy back at the golf ball for excellent distance and speed retention, especially on off-center hits.   

We reckon the Launcher is a decent-looking fairway wood, if our testers had a niggle it’s how the white shaft looks longer than what it actually is, which for less confident golfers will undoubtedly zap a bit of confidence. Performance wise Launcher certainly didn’t produce the fastest ball speeds or longest carrying shots for any tester, but that wouldn’t stop us from recommending them, they’re a solid option from the deck and tee.

Great across-the-board performance, irrespective of ability

The GBB combines all of Callaway’s best technologies in a single head. A Hyper Speed Cup face maximizes ball speeds across the face while a modern Warbird sole makes it easy to hit. A larger head increases MOI for more forgiveness and an adjustable 8-way hosel lets you dial in a specific loft to suit your own game.

Even though the GBB sounded really powerful it didn’t quite manage to outgun everything on test. But it did solidly tie with the top 3 longest fairways on the test, and with our longest shots coming from the toe and the heel it's got to be said the tech in Callaway’s Hyper Speed Face is doing a lot right.

One of the highest launching fairway woods out there

TaylorMade says its SIM Max fairway woods, with their multi-material construction, launch shots a yard higher than the M6 fairway, making them the highest launching fairway on the market.

While the SIM fairway has a titanium head, both the new SIM Max and SIM Max D are steel with carbon-fiber crowns.
Both Max models come with Twist Face and Speed Pockets, along with ultra-strong and flexible C300 steel faces, all to ensure explosive ball speeds and distance. TaylorMade says it is designed for higher launch and peak trajectories, with extremely long distance and improved playability.

One of the best high-performing fairway woods available

The TSi2 and TSi3 fairway woods are speed-tuned to get the clubhead moving faster than ever and provide more distance across the face and are among the best fairway woods available. As with the TSi drivers, a high-contrast graphic face design makes alignment a breeze, while the softer toe profile requested by Titleist’s tour pros also moves into the fairway woods and gives a square look at address.

As with the TSi2 drivers, the fairway wood is a modern-shaped club aimed at players who want to launch it high with maximum forgiveness. TSi2 provides speed and accuracy across the clubface along with maximum distance and forgiveness thanks to a deeper and lower fixed center of gravity. There’s also an adjustable swing weight, along with the SureFit hosel, to enable the club to be perfectly fitted for your needs.

Whether you need forgiveness, distance, or playability, Stealth delivers

If 2023 is the year you’re looking at buying new fairway woods you simply cannot leave TaylorMade's Stealth family off your shortlist to try. Aside from the Stealth sitting beautifully square at address, and us loving its completely non-offensive matt black crown, the model was also our pro’s 3rd longest fairway, whilst giving the smallest amount of carry distance drop-off and hitting shots into our 3rd smallest dispersion area. Which of course means it will deliver on both distance and accuracy on the golf course.

If you’re not the most confident fairway wood player, we love the High Launch 16.5deg 3 wood option, at more moderate speeds it’s highly likely to carry shots further and be more accurate than the 15deg 3 wood used within our test.

Best Used Hybrids

A brilliant hybrid that can be dialed in to replace harder-to-hit clubs

More so than ever hybrids and fairway woods are staying in golfer’s bags for longer. Once we find a model we like and are comfortable with it from a distance they tend to stick around and we don’t consider changing for some time. Based on our test results, whether you use them to replace a 3-iron or 7-iron, we reckon the Fli-Hi’s friendly wide, confidence-inspiring heads are highly likely to become a firm favorite in your bag.
       
We can’t say the model was our fastest or longest – data was actually spot on our test averages for launch, spin, shot height, and descent angle – but Fli-Hi excelled in accuracy, and dispersion, key areas for amateurs. Hitting shots into just a 15.2 yds left to the right window, meant our test pro didn’t miss our target green set at a 240-yard distance. With just 9 yards difference between on and off-center hits the model also racked up the third smallest shot area of our entire hybrid test.

A powerful hybris that will appeal to single figure and mid-hanicappers

At a time when prices are skyrocketing, this is a very simple, unpretentious hybrid that can mix it up with the very best in terms of performance – without costing the earth.

It’s no secret Srixon has refocused its attention on better players, and it’s that sort of player who’ll love the clean head design and full-face grooves, which don’t draw the eye. Yet we found the mid-wide body actually pretty forgiving. The H85 is well worth seeking out if you’re looking for a reasonably priced, powerful hybrid.

Born from the Titleist Speed Project, TS hybrids feature an ultra-thin crown that allows weight to be shifted lower and deeper, a 16 percent thinner face for faster ball speeds and more forgiveness, plus 16 independent loft and lie settings to fine-tune it to your game.

The Titleist TS3 hybrid is a fast-launching iron replacement designed to produce outstanding distance and control for stronger players who hit down on the ball.

Suited to those who struggle to consistently flight their woods

The Big Bertha OS is Callaway’s most forgiving iron so it’s absolutely no surprise the matching hybrids are designed to deliver maximum forgiveness too. It’s a bit strange the OS is Callaway’s only adjustable hosel hybrid (it makes it their most expensive too) but there’s no doubt it's handy dialling in 4 different lofts all from the same head.

Our Equipment Editor's performance with the OS highlights perfectly the job hybrids can do for club golfers, especially those with slower swing speeds. A 209-yard carry distance from an 88 mph swing speed just wouldn’t be possible with a traditional 3-iron. The OS is expensive but if like us they grow on you, they come in so many lofts you could effectively just add short irons to complete your perfect set.

A game changer is you struggle to launch mid-irons consistently

If you haven’t already noticed, there’s one big trend in Callaway’s new equipment – everything is coming in threes! Callaway has three Mavrik drivers and three Mavrik irons, so there are Mavrik hybrids and matching Mavrik fairways, too.

The Mavrik Max is a larger, progressive hybrid with extra draw bias. Really easy to launch and fly, with maximum forgiveness. The full-face grooves on this hybrid give off a similar look to a long iron. For those wanting a more neutral shot bias setup, then the Mavrik Pro is a more appropriate model.

Designed for pure distance, high launch, and straight ball flights

Thanks to brilliant KBS Players graphite shafts as stock, we reckon the LTDx is best suited to reasonable golfers, and certainly not players who struggle to fly long approaches for maximum carry distance.

This hybrid certainly doesn't lack power. The weighting system positions mass low and forward to combine low spin with faster ball speeds for enhanced distance. For those players looking for a highly playable hybrid with a neutral set-up, the LTDx would be a great option. Golfers with a tendency to fade and slice the ball may struggle to get the distance they would expect from this rescue club.

Best Used Irons

A fantastic easy to align game improvement iron

Engineers have designed the i15 with a Custom Tuning Port in the cavity which provides a stunning feel and acoustics. We all loved these irons and agreed they were easy to align and were one of the best iron-heads that the company had ever produced.

In the design of the Ping i15 iron, Ping engineers focused on the better player who prefers an iron set that offers the control to play a variety of shots. Created as a progressive set, the longer irons are larger for more forgiveness and the mid- and short-irons are smaller to ensure workability and control on approach shots.

An incredibly forgiving game improvement iron

The Mizuno MP-52 iron is the most forgiving MP iron ever. The 52s combine the feel of a blade with the ease of use of cavity backs. The key to this is the new Dual Muscle design that conceals a gull-wing-shaped pocket cavity for more stability and forgiveness while keeping the clean profile of the MP line.

A cracking-looking iron that performs well. It’s not lairy in design so perfect for those seeking a clean classic looking bat. It’s got a chunkier sole than the MP-62 with the CG deeper than in any other MP iron. Our guys loved it and it well deserved its high ranking.

Very easy to hit and extremely forgiving with an amazing feel

Ping has always been one of the best options for game improvement irons ever since they introduced the Ping Eye which both tour pros and amateurs loved. The G400 irons remain a brilliant option today. With a seven-iron loft 3 degrees weaker than the Rogue X it was never going to be any tester's longest iron but we can’t fault its fantastic overall speed, distance, and forgiveness package.

Average swing speed golfers might well see a gain in distance going for the new Ping G700 but make no mistake the G400 is a top performer across the board. Ping irons also hold their value more so than virtually any other brand, worth remembering if you’re the type to chop and change equipment on a regular basis.

Vintage Wilson irons are ideal for those aspiring to lower handicaps

Wilson's FG Tour V6 irons contain 20 grams of tungsten, split heel and toe in the long irons and centered on the mid irons, lower the center of gravity and provide optimal forgiveness across the iron set. The irons maintain a solid, muscle back-like feel and workability, but with a back cavity design to provide feedback and forgiveness on off-center hits.

These irons are ideal for low and mid-handicap golfers alike, offering ample forgiveness for their category while maintaining the control and workability required by slightly better players.

A soft iron for great ball strikers looking for added distance

The Forged Tec and Tec One Length irons fall into the players’ distance category and are designed for better players in the low to mid-handicap range. The Tec irons feature a new five-step forging process used in Tour-calibre forgings to create an exceptionally soft feel and precise shaping. They have a thinner topline and reduced offset to create a preferred player's look at address.

The compact shaping of the new KING-Forged TEC irons belies the. A hollow body design is filled with a lighter and softer foam to promote more distance while maintaining great sound, feel, and feedback.  Each iron in the set features a forged PWRSHELL Face to create maximum speed and high launch.  A 20g tungsten toe weight positions the center of gravity perfectly behind the sweet spot for pure-feeling ball strikes with added stability on off-center hits.

Designed to give better players workability and control

The Mavrik Pro irons have been developed with similar traits to the Sub Zero driver. Flash Cup face and a multi-piece urethane microsphere and tungsten weight bar change shape and size for each iron. The idea optimizes the CG location, absorbs unwanted vibration, and improves spin and launch.

Designed as a tour/player-sized iron, and even though the head is cast, thanks to AI, Callaway's engineers have dialed in how the new Flash Cup Face and body vibrates, so they've tuned impact frequencies to the same levels as forged iron. The Pro is more compact and has a flatter lie angle and a thinner topline, all of which Callaway says give better players workability and control. Tungsten weighting and urethane microsphere tech position the center of gravity for player-preferred trajectories, spin rates, and landing angles throughout the set.

A reliable and consistent iron for those looking for distance with forgiveness

The SIM Max irons replace TaylorMade’s M6 and are directly aimed at club golfers who want distance with forgiveness. The SIM Max is a cast iron that sounds like a forged model, and that is why the SIM Max has been a huge success. They offer something most cast irons struggle to match.

In our eyes, the SIM Max doesn’t have a ridiculously wide top edge or tall face height (to improve face flex), or masses of offset, so they’re a really good-looking game-improvement model. Without the strongest lofts they might struggle to compete on pure launch monitor numbers (the SIM Max OS will), but for sensible golfers who know the importance of optimal numbers for launching, lighting, and descending shots onto a green, we reckon the TaylorMade SIM Max is a very reliable and consistent iron to have in your golf bag.

Tour-level design without sacrificing ball speed or distance

Judging by our website traffic Apex irons were the most eagerly awaited iron launch back in 2019. Apex Pro didn’t waste any time getting down to business on tour, either, winning their first week out in the hands of Xander Schauffele. Unlike the previous model, there’s cup face technology in the long and mid irons (3-7), which adds some extra zip, making the Pro’s longer irons slightly more playable than some of the competition.

We don’t often endorse “Pro” model clubs, but we reckon Apex Pro might suit up to a six handicapper as long as you’re a confident ball striker. If you’re in any doubt about choosing between the Pro or standard Apex 19, our data suggests you’re putting over 10 yards (of 7-iron carry) on the line by choosing the Pro, which is significant. If you’re good enough, they’re a cracking set of irons.

Best Used Wedges

Some of the deepest and sharpest grooves on the market for maximum spin

Cleveland are wedge legends, and the ZipCore is just one family of wedges in a very long line of brilliant models. You really can’t go wrong with them, we love the ZipCore’s straight leading edge and the brilliant feel and feedback.

As part of our Best 2021 Wedge Test, we thought we’d delve deep into our data and crunch the numbers to find out just how much spin difference there was between each wedge model. Where some models ran to 2,000rpm difference, the ZipCore incredibly was tied top of the pile (with the Ben Hogan Equalizer), dropping just 553rpm between shots. In anybody’s book, that’s a seriously impressive performance.

Turned to year after year by Tour pros as their wedge of choice

While Cleveland can lay claim to getting people talking about forgiving wedges, Vokey owns the high ground when it comes to shifting mass higher in a wedge to create a progressive center of gravity. The idea is that golfers hit lower lofted wedges lower in the face, where more lofted models are typically impacted higher.

Vokey inspects the grooves of every wedge leaving their factory, which they say ensures maximum spin. We’re talking fractions but the SM8 was three percent in front of the ZipCore for spin on a full shot, which for some will be a headline-grabbing number.

Best Used Putters

A Faldo-inspired shape suited to putting strokes with rotation

Wilson can lay claim to making the legendary TPA putter that Nick Faldo used to win a couple of Majors, now we can’t say that Grant Park is exactly the same shape but it is very similar.

The huge amount of toe hang means the Grant Park is much more suited to a putting stroke with rotation than a straight back and through motion. We liked the white toe to heel alignment line on the top edge which clearly shows where the blade is pointing, and we also felt the positive crisp feel off the solid milled face was spot on.

Premium feel and responsiveness from Tour-proven Versa technology

The Versa family of putters has always offered a new high-contrast alignment technology that accentuates the face angle at address, through the stroke, and at impact, allowing you to align your putter more accurately to the target.

The black-and-white contrast allows your eyes to zone in on linear designs on the head to emphasize the face angle and improve concentration as you line up your putt. The #9 also features an improved White Hot insert, delivering a more consistent sound, feel, and performance across the sweet spot.

A favorite of Lee Westwood with a high MOI and clean look

Ping has huge pedigree when it comes to putters, and because the Tyne can already be found amongst other winning models in Ping’s gold putter vault it’s highly likely to be around for some time to come. A very solid, stable, and unfussy MOI putter. If you’re in the business of making sure you get the most out of any new purchase it’s well worth taking Ping up on the offer of custom fitting.

There’s nothing flash or fussy about the Tyne, so we reckon it's well suited to golfers who like simple designs and probably find some of the other leading MOI models too distracting. For golfers with slightly arcing strokes, there’s also an “H” (hosel) model which doesn’t have a double bend shaft.

A Tour-winning and high-stability model

The Odyssey #7 head shape is a classic when it comes to MOI putters. Weighted alignment wings increase MOI and stability. The O-Works micro hinge face insert lifts putts into a better roll. A short slant neck (the #7 is also available face balanced with a double-bend shaft) and slight toe hang mean the #7S is well suited to slightly arcing putting strokes. 

We loved the bold and simple alignment spots and sightlines, and our test pro was particularly impressed with how the two black lines which run from the top edge to the back-flange show when the sole’s flat on the ground and your eyes are correctly aligned above the ball. The #7 head also comes in a red paint job for those looking to jazz things up.

Anyone lacking confidence on the greens should give this a go

Visually, the huge dual fangs dominate and although intrusive designs can often distract, our testers really liked these bold and aggressive looks. Make no mistake, the dual fangs aren’t just there for show. 38% of the total weight is located there to push it to back and side edges for the high MOI and increased stability all modern equipment is demanding.

Clever aiming channels between the fangs make alignment a doddle and when you throw in the obligatory Odyssey feel, you have a putter which looks cool, aims easily, feels great, and fills you with confidence behind any putt. The Sabretooth’s high-density fangs allow weight to be redistributed to the perimeter of the head for a high MOI, creating increased forgiveness and a truer roll, while the aiming channels inside the fangs make alignment far easier.

A high-quality MOI putter with Tour-proven performance

Created as either a Tour Red for Jason Day (softer face insert) or Tour Black (firmer face insert) for Dustin Johnson, the TaylorMade Spider Tour putter has been incredibly popular on tour over the years.

The Spider putter teams a light aluminum body with a heavier 304 stainless steel frame to create a very high MOI and forgiving putter – so it’s no wonder Sergio Garcia put it into play en route to his first major title at the Masters. The Spider Tour is a high-quality MOI putter that, in the right hands and matched to the right stroke, really performs.

A simple idea that will definitely be of benefit to club golfers

Odyssey’s Triple Track Ten shape is a beauty. With an MOI of 5504 Odyssey says it outperforms a TaylorMade Spider X for stability. If, like a lot of club golfers, your putting could do with some additional stability and alignment help, the Ten is your match.

Without a doubt, Odyssey has hit a massive home run transferring Triple Track sightlines from their golf balls to putters, and in our opinion, the Ten is the pick of the seven-model family. To receive the full benefit of the sightlines, you’ll need a Triple Track ball (see best golf balls 2024) in front of the putter, too. For some, it will take a bit of practice aligning the head to the ball so the lines run through the pair, but trust us the effort is well worthwhile – our test pro didn’t miss one 15-footer while we gathered our data!

As this handy guide reveals, there are some sensational deals to be found if you do a bit of homework – and the savings over the RRPs run into thousands and thousands of pounds…

Prices are constantly changing across Golfbidder’s stock range – taking into account things like demand and condition, which affect a club’s desirability. The prices in this guide are correct at the time of writing. 

Should I buy second-hand golf clubs?

There’s no reason not to buy second-hand golf clubs, especially from a trusted source like Golfbidder where the clubs are all checked and rated before they agree to buy them from other golfers.

Golf is an expensive sport and buying used or second-hand clubs is a great way to upgrade your equipment and performance without breaking the bank.

Can I sell my used golf clubs?

We’ve all got used clubs kicking around in the garage or shed; the driver that hit one too many slices; the putter that missed one too many tap-ins; the irons you just didn’t get on with… But rather than leave them to gather dust, you can turn those clubs into cash at Golfbidder – or use them to trade up for something more modern.

How to sell your old golf clubs

If you want to sell your golf clubs, Golfbidder are here to help. The process is easy, and they guarantee payment within 72 hours of receiving your clubs. Here’s how to sell your second-hand golf clubs for cash:

1. Register for an account or log into an existing one.

2. Click ‘Sell or Part-exchange’.

3. Tell Golfbidder the brand, model and condition of the clubs.

4. Use the rating guide to help you get the correct condition.

5. You’ll then see an instant price for your clubs.

6. If you’re happy with the offer, add it to your basket and proceed to checkout.

Golfbidder can send a box (if your quote is over £100) for you to send your clubs and also arrange a collection from a convenient location.

Once Golfbidder receive the clubs and they match the description, they will process your payment (or refund you if you’re part-exchanging; see below).

How much will you get for your old golf clubs?

As the largest buyer and seller of used golf clubs in Europe, Golfbidder have developed software that tracks the supply and demand across countless club models. This means they can buy and sell clubs at prices that are fair and in line with industry trends. Demand is only part of the equation with Golfbidder pricing and valuations, though; they will also look at the condition of the clubs, with the state of the head and shaft being the most critical factor.

How does Golfbidder rate the condition of golf clubs?

What Golfbidder's different club ratings mean.

10/10 – Brand new or mint

Brand new, never been hit. In some cases still in the wrapper. A 9/10 score is still brand new, minus
the wrapper.

8/10 – Very good condition

These clubs may have only been hit a handful of times, two or three rounds at most. Any marks will be very light.

What Golfbidder's different club ratings mean.

7/10 – Good condition

These clubs will show evidence of play, but there will be no damage. Clubs will have been used and looked after, with no dings or chips.

6/10 – Fair Condition

This club is in perfectly usable order, but cosmetically not quite deserving of a ‘good’ rating. There may be minor marks resulting from normal use.

Simon Daddow is the Equipment Editor for Today’s Golfer. Having tested and played more than 10,000 clubs in his life, what he doesn’t know about golf clubs isn’t worth knowing.

He’s a specialist in all things metal having spent a large part of his career as a golf club maker and product development manager, and has worked in the golf industry for more than 30 years. Starting out as trainee professional at Downes Crediton GC where he learned the art of golf club making, he went onto work for Clubhaus Plc and Tony Charles Ltd as a golf club maker, and running Product Development at Benross Golf.

Simon also spent time working as a Sales Executive in Harrods’ golf department, even helping supply Sir Nick Faldo with personalized shirts in a last-minute emergency ahead of a flight to a tournament.

Despite his youthful looks, Simon has played golf for more than 40 years and plays to a handicap of 10. A lack of club speed means he’s short off the tee, but very handy from 125 yards and in.

He enjoys excellent relationships with the biggest names in the golf equipment industry, including PXG boss Bob Parsons and TaylorMade’s Tomo Bystedt and Adrian Rietveld.

Away from the course, Simon is a season-ticket holder at Peterborough United Football Club, attending games with his young son. He’s also a keen cyclist and enjoys working (and relaxing) at his allotment.

His favorite ever piece of golf equipment is the Callaway Warbird fairway wood and he considers the biggest technological advancement in the game to have been titanium driver heads.
