bent,

I don't have any details about those, but I've always liked the look of that aluminum insert in a nice blonde head. Something about the "rounded" look of the VIPs that is so appealing.

Those look awesome..... nice find,

Ebay Alerts

Postby BomGolf222 » Tue Nov 17, 2009 11:10 am

I couldn't find a topic like this around, so I figured I'd start one. There's just so much great(worthless :roll: ) stuff to find on there.
If I could restore clubs I'd be all over these- especially the one the black dot in the centre, the grain in the face looks so pure!

good idea for a thread Bom, however, I think to avoid in fighting if someone is interested they should declare their interest. No point in a load of ABS guys bidding against each other!

Crap! Good point, Styles. Maybe I opened a can of worms that we should just close again. I sometimes wondered were we all driving the prices up by ourselves- that would be funny. We could post the things we don't want but then if someone else had their eye on it then it would be messy. Maybe this wasn't such a good idea after all. Now that I think about it a little more, it would be better to PM things we see to the people you would imagine would be interested instead of putting them out for us to bid against eachother. What do you think- is that a better way to do it? Should this thread just skulk quietly backwards out of the room and hope that nobody saw him :?

Don't have pics yet, but I walked into a golf shop to kill some time and found a set of 1971 Hogan "Round Sole" 3-E for $29. They have Apex 5 shafts and leather wrap grips! Some days we just get lucky!

MacGregor PT3's

Postby robbo » Wed Nov 18, 2009 7:13 am

One of my last iron set purchases for a while. I have one more set on the way.

These are some Mac PT3's from 1958. I hit the 6-iron a few times over the weekend...... it's a very solid feeling club. These are a full half-inch shorter than standard and almost an inch shorter than my usual specs .... I think that's how clubs were in the late 50's. I'm thinking of keeping this set "as-is" (old loft specs, Propel Action #3 shafts) other than some flattening of the lie angles and new grips (the leather ones are simply too slick).

Nice one Robbo! I really like the shorter clubs in the older sets witha 5 iron at 37.5 or 37 inches.

Cheers, G
