Just bought a yamada 'mint condition' putter off the bay. I was a bit worried about the rust in the back of the cavity. that was until Richard assured me that was just the finish, and how I got the putter at a fraction of it's new price of over $350. After a little more correspondance, with me questioning how a mint condition putter has scratched shaft, and a cheap golf pride grip instead of the usual gripmaster, I was told to buy new..... kind of thought that was what mint was.. thanks again golfguru-72, next time I play Horsham GC, I'll make sure you're the one I give my green fees to!!

That is seriously crap, the listing photos where done to hide the rust as well. I would be contacting Paypal. Clearly not as described on a number of points.

This looks like the same seller that sold a dodgy set of MP59s to some guy on OG, I reckon.

I've emailed the manager of the club, explaining how one of his staff are conducting themselves. After all, the putter did come with a message on Horsham Golf Club letterhead. I have asked for a formal response, see how I go. Anything would be an improvement to some of the gems I've received from this bloke, who again, is the club pro. Treasures like... 'since when do you make the eBay rules', ' this is maybe what happens when u purchase second hand products on line'

Buy yourself a cheap 2 litre bottle of cola, pour it into a bucket and and pop the putter head in. The rust will be gone overnight. $124 is pretty good value for one of these.

3 would be quite exceptional, LL. And possibly in need of veterinary attention.
