Here are some other bargains I picked up recently sniffing around on ebay in the UK:

1. 3-SW set of Ram Tour Grinds with Brunswick 5.5 shafts
2. 3-PW set of Slazenger TPM Supremos with S300s - these look really flat though I havn't measured them yet
3. 3-PW set of Macgregor Nicklaus 67s (missing an 8 iron) - these seem quite similar to the Muirfield model - a bit thinner and longer heel to toe than the the MTs with possibly a bit more offset.


Cheers, Arnie

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,

robbo


Hi Robbo,

No these arn't split soles, be nice if they were, but otherwise seem v similar. In terms of probation as a repeat offender I am not sure I qualify! Mrs Arnie is thinking of a custodial term I think. :D

Cheers,

AA

ok..... I give up. I suggest ABS allows no more complaining about lack of vintage gear east of the U.S. And I don't care if you're left-handed.

I also suggest a forum monitored by AA titled "avoiding divoce while making multiple ebay purchases".

Matching left and right hands sets, nice idea Robbo, I'll get working on it........

Mrs Arnie is very tolerant though come to think of it I havn't see her for a while, I wonder where she is? She did seem quite chatty for a while with the guy who delivers all the clubs though. Hope I havn't swapped her inadvertantly for a set of Dynapowers by mistake..............

This thread is just beautiful---some of the deals we have gotten are amazing...
but sadly, Robbo and I are in the same boat (I still want some redlines :roll: )...I have 3 awesome iron sets and 3 Lovely sets of persimmons...and I have
Lag's favorite wedge in the mail(I will have pics)
but enough is enough...It sure has been fun...I just don't have the room...And i need to learn how to hit 'em!

I look forward to seeing all the new goodies from other ABS ers...

Price wise---It still is amazing to me---3 sets of some of the greatest irons ever made...3 sets of lovely persimmon...and the greatest wedge ever made...

all for less than the retail cost of a new driver...

I suggest we have a "1st Anniversery" of ABS and all related activity somewhere in early 2010.

Of course the logical location for the event will be the home of Annington Arnie. AA.... please forewarn Mrs AA far enough in advance to have everything ready to go. I was going to suggest that all ABS members bring their favorite set of irons or persimmons, but it will be easier to simply have AA provide the duplicate he already has in the "AA ABS Museum".

Perhaps a live auction for a set of persimmons and/or mb irons would be in order. AA won't be allowed to bid but he'll be required to sit up front while the bidding occurs. That in itself might be worth the airfare!!! :D

Love this thread, too. Just purchased some Haig Ultras '67. I finally outbid some of you guys :D . Had to pay a pretty penny though due to their "9" condition......$61 ;) Also won a '60s Cleveland Classic TC15 3-wood to go with my Driver ($12). Will have pics up next week. In addition, got outbid for an iron set SOLD by CheeseDonk. This is getting weird :roll: .

Just received a set of 1965-66 Ben Hogan Percussions with the 3" hosel today -- 3-E, all for about $30 + freight and 1-5 laminated woods. I took a chance as the pics weren't great and the clubs weren't described that well and it turned out well. They have Reg shafts, but I'll be switching them out. They're in great condition...

Pic is from the auction. I might post more later.

Some more quick pics - my camera makes the condition look worse than it is. I used to think the Hogans looked a little strange. Now I think everything else looks strange. Love the blade-on-blade shape progression from low to high lofts. Now I just have to find a 2i to round out the set...
