I agree on lengths---

and i sure understand about the grips---the all original clubs we are buying arent worth that much money,
but it is stll hard for me to rip off those old original grips!! Most of them have that original "cap" on the
butt end---so slick you can barely hold on, yet it hurts me every time put a knife to them...

Very true! I left my Hagen 2i intact just to keep that original grip and cap, only problem is when I need to hit that club I run a serious risk of throwing the club with the ball! :lol:

How about the way they put those old leather grips on??!!

Replacing/re-gripping the leather grips of the PT3's went something like:

1) Cut the lower plastic band on the grip and pry it off.

2) Unwrap the leather from bottom to butt end.

3) Unwrap some sort of "paper underlay"..... approx 100 yards of it per grip.

4) Clean up any paper underlay that's still attached to the shaft...... btw what IS that adhesive they used? Tar?

5) Try and clean up any remaining "tar" left on the grip with solvent (gloves are mandatory).

6) Cut the butt cap retainer off in 50 small chunks.

7) Install new grip and realize the shaft diameters are smaller so you have to build up the shaft with tape.

Re-grip 8 irons and you can justify missing a module 3 workout cause your arms/hands are so fatigued!

I am cranky and cynical about 98% of my day ( I trade the markets) but when I unwrapped these babies,
I damn near had a tear in my eye---soooo beautiful...

Guys, I know it sounds insane---but these are the ones I wrote about not too long ago---


29 dollars...

Spalding B-O-B's

Postby robbo » Fri Nov 20, 2009 11:13 am

My first set of Spalding irons. We used to always chuckle about Top Flite's.... referring to their balls as "Rock-Flites", but I'm beginning to think that their irons were way under-rated. I've been lusting for a set of Birdie on Ball's for a while now, but never came across a decent deal. These were less than $50.

This set of TF Tour Editions (mid-80's) are amazingly similar to my KZG Zero Offsets...... what goes around comes around. After taking a full inventory of my sets I'm done with vintage iron purchases for awhile, unless I see a nice set of Wilson's pop up. :)

Bird on the Balls always look nice Robbo!

I picked up these MacGregor MT Tourney Irons today from a local ebay seller - 2-10 irons. They are in almost unused shape and have Mac Tourney steel #1 shafts which I think are stiff. From what I am led to believe they are not a particularly sort after model but they feel pretty heavy and have quite a thick top line which just looks like lots of mass to me so I like it.

Cheers,

Arnie

AA,

Split soles? Mine have the "1" shafts and they feel very very stiff, more like an X.

btw...when do we put you on "ebay probation"? :D Thank God I'm done with vintage iron searching..... in the back of my mind I always felt I might be bidding against you!!!

Cheers,
