Bad picture of great equipment

I’m a terrible photographer but here is a picture of my setup for today. I’d love to see your setup for the weekend

    Very nice photos!



    The only thing I sometimes attempt is pics of the clubs in the address position - particularly with putters.



    Thanks for sharing!

    Cool set-up.



    Maybe we can convince Greg to come and take close-ups of your set-up, like he does for the tour events!

    Its called the Danser. I’ve been wanting one for my PING Putter collection. They are around, some people want way more than what they’re worth, to me anyway.

  • I’m a sucker for a white and black insert. I used to have a limited Chattanooga that looked very similar to yours, 84425. Stu, I’m jealous of you due to your putter. Finally the Karten 2 set is amazing how well it has stood the test of time. U ever had those polished? They look great

    Oh the Little David 8802 ? That was quite a find--- Found it in one of the bins at work--- Liked the way it set and felt off the bat. Did a little work to it for me including weighting it up--- If you are talking about the Ironmaster in my signature that was one of my junkyard finds too. It was a little bent in the hosel but I eyeball straightened it for me. I putt with it pretty well too. I did not know what the Little David 8802 was until Tim V on here told me. Really did not care what the origin of it was even if it had been a K-Mart putter all I knew it set well and felt real good to me.

    Some nice looking bags guys.





    My irons are not old, but Id call them classics. Woods are Macgregor Muirfields from the early 80s. Putter is an HB Grand Slam Mars 70 from the 1950s.

    Thanks. This is an old Mac M85. Love the putter in your photo. Is it the Louisville version of the Willy Dunn putter or the Tad Moore version (or is it the ambi dex putter)?

    Agreed, there are usually one or two for sale on ebay for $200-350. Found mine on ebay.co.uk a couple of years ago for a little less than $100 (which was more or less the maximum I was willing to pay for it). Almost all of the Dansers you will find for sale are in mint condition though, so you are buying a "new" putter.

    deejaid-



    Nice bag!



    And how old are these irons again?



    It is something of a stretch to call irons made by the "new" Ben Hogan Golf Company (the former Eidolon Golf) "classics"-



    Especially when Ben Hogan himself had a thing about "irons with a (expletive) hole in the head.." His actual words were part of a meeting with his sales staff.



    Yes to the persimmon woods and putter, but ix-nay on the irons made after 2010.



    And up until this year, the new Ben Hogan Golf Company was RH Only. They make a "limited" number of LH irons sets, and nothing like yours.



    So if you had $$$$$, and wanted a replacement set for one of these models....



  • deejaiddeejaid Members Posts: 461 ✭✭
    A club can be new and still be a classic. The Terry Koehler designed Ft. Worth 15’s are a timeless, classic design that harkens back to the blade on blade design of the Hogan’s of the early 1960’s.

    After all they may not be classic age wise but BY God they are Blades and a timeless design. And even if they are newer Hogans they are still Ft Worth Hogans.

    Other clubs in the "modern" bag are steel-shafted V-Steel fairway woods (#4 and #7) and a Ram Zebra putter. Driver is an RBZ Stage 2 which cost me 8 shots in the medal today (only hit it on 6 holes LOL).

    LOL on calling V-Steels modern. Only us old timers would do that. Most think that V-Steels are ancient---- I play my 5 and 7 V-Steels. Just put my 7 back in and hit it real good Saturday can not figure why I took it out in the first place. That 5 wood is one hot little potato I have a Pro Launch Blue in it. I do know the reason I pulled the 7 out. I had a UST Pro Force Gold 65 stiff in it had so for years. That shaft got too stiff for me to hit. I ended up putting a stock TM V-Steel R graphite in it out of a V-Steel 3 wood> Tipped it about 1/4 and butt cut to length.

    Nice sticks. You know that Buzzkill who is one of our WRX Mods plays the same set of irons. He went back from modern to those and has a TT shaft that he put in that is not currently available in the USA. If you will take a pic of the bag I think I remember it when you posted it before and I think I remember it is really nice. I also remembered Buzz is playing the early metal PT-13s with his Tour Models

    A nod to you Stu .... I actually got interested in trying V-Steels after reading about you raving about them on here image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />



    I've picked up a #3, #4, #5 and #7 for about half the cost of a new M4 fairway wood, all with steel shafts, and all regular, apart from the #7 which is stiff. Best metal fairways I've ever used by a country mile. Great off the tee ... easy to hit off the deck and out of semi rough, great into the wind and hard to hit offline ! Consider me a fan LOL.

    Ha. Old tech. Can't possible be as good as new(er) fairway designs. No carbon fiber, no cup face, no turbulators. Yet another V-Steel convert. Also inspired by Stu (offering credit where due).



    Love my sweet V-steel 9 wood. So easy to mash straight, from virtually any lie, at distances between 155 -170 depending on how I grip it. Reliably, my best club in the bag. Still browsing for a 4 wood (Graf PL waiting) to complete the family.

    I was a V-Steel fan long before I came on WRX--- I have all kinds of them from 3 woods to 9 woods. If they had made a driver in that series and it was as good as the fairways no one including T-Mag would be selling any drivers at all now. I pick up any one I see no matter the shaft. They can be a little tricky to find shafts for being .350 tip. My 5 wood shaft started as an uncut driver shaft at .335 so I just shimmed it up. That 7 wood was my first V-Steel and I have had it for at least 15 years now.

    OH yeah man!! Now I remember that is one classy bag. I do not blame you for not taking it out to the course especially if the bag drop guys up there are like the ones here. The ones here do not have any idea at all how to handle clubs or strap a bag on. I ended up stopping using my smaller stand bags because all the bag drop guys here put the death grip on the strap when putting it on the cart which distorts them and makes the clubs hard to get in and out. I resorted back to one of my mini staff bags. Funny thing was Saturday the bag drop guy put the death grip or tried to on my Titleist Mini Staff. I told him that was not necessary. I also showed him the proper way to put it on and BTW I did not tip him either. I am like you when it comes to my classic Macgregor green and white mini staff IF it goes to the course I INSIST putting it on the cart myself. Had one bag drop attendant up in NC that was banging my Callaway X-Forged around getting the bag to the cart. She was banging my irons against the metal stand at the bag drop and I did not even have them in a mini staff at the time had them in a TEE stand bag. I hollered WOOAH! Hey those are forged Tour Irons not some cast junk just stop NOW! I put them on the cart myself and did not tip there either. Yeah I get tired of it.

    Agreed. The bag drop kids have no idea how to correctly place a bag on the back of a cart. Always have to readjust if they have the deed done before stopping them. I'll tip them a couple of bucks to leave my bag alone, but keep an eye on it until I return. (Do not like ever having my bag of implements out of eye sight.) The vast majority of time, handle the bag myself from the back of the vehicle to install on the cart.



    Nice bags. Here's a pic of my favorite, amongst several. Classic Hot-Z, all black with gold piping. Near mint, and found it for $10.00. Recently thrifted the matching head covers. Such a classy looking bag. Little to big and heavy to lug around all the time, especially on the push 'trolley'. But it looks right filled with some classic sticks. Get a fair amount of compliments on it as well. One thing I've noticed standing next to the modern bag (SM C130), it's a good 2" or more taller. Don't know why that's the case. Shorter bags = Cheaper to make?



    They don't make 'em like they use to.

    Very nice bag!



    Am sure you have a putter cover, as it gets beat up down there with those wedges....

    It’s all good. I don’t consider the Ft. Worth’s blades either, nor are they cavity backs, they are a forged players club. I’ve read 5 Lessons multiple times but never “Power Golf” so Im not familiar with his theory on left handed clubs, but personally I can’t see how not offer a club in left hand would keep it from being a classic.



    I also recall reading that Mr. Hogan hated the mid 90’s Channelbacks and the 1999 Apex model was forged in Japan. Times change, but newly created clubs can still be timeless.
