Epons hold a ton of value and Modart seems to hold the absolute least with Mizuno Yoros close behind,

If u plan on purchasing, keep the receipt and donate the clubs after use for tax deductions and maximum value. Thoae items are as desirable as slightly stained underwear or socks with a hole at the big toe. : )

Lol...Yes noy sure what tax depreciation is for 6 months before you donate to your club, but has to be way less than the loss on resale at the moment.

Epon does seem to keep the best value, but why arnt zen putters that are as rare as any other betty or scotty and probably better made fetching the same $$$s

Buchi also holds well as does roddio. Cant fathom out the modart and yoro ting as they are both premo in design and quality.

Try looking for modart on the bay or the yee. Non existent.

I can tell you that in the Mid-West (US) Miura is the clear leader in resale value. All other JDM brands aren't even a blip on the radar. It is not a price/cost issue either, simply a lack of knowledge of how far superior JDM clubs are.

Thanks for the response, I was hoping this topic would go down the track of Quality rather than price.

It seemed like a good topic to start with price as some of the best gear (quality) in the world has struggled to sell here lately.

The craftsmanship that goes in to some of these brands is off the charts.

Modart, yoro etc...For more or less prices a new set mass productions would sell for new???? Insane.

In our neck of the woods, Honma holds the best resale value. However, it isn't on the list for some reason.

Its Honma by a country mile... 10 year old clubs still selling for $2.5k on the bay.

Vintage Honmas do bring in good money but the 3-5 star sets were also quite pricey to begin with.
