MacGregor MT Split Sole Irons

smorgsmorg Tundra TransplantMembers Posts: 265 ✭✭
My first onset of the obsessive vintage club disease manifested itself 15 years ago when I picked a set of Mac MT split sole irons with aluminum shafts at a local thrift store. Well,,, too many clubs to count since then, but yesterday I scored this near mint set of Mac MT split soles 2-10. I don't think they were hit a dozen times and then put away. The grips are still soft and pliable. There isn't much gray area with the split sole MT's, either you love them or hate them. I looked in the Kaplan Mac book to date them but came away confused. The book shows MT markings on the face by the scoing lines for the 1969 and 1970 MT split sole models. These have arrows identical to the 1970 VIP irons but these aren't VIP's. Also found this an unusual set because of the extra length +1" shafts. Comments appreciated.

    $20.18 plus tax for the MT's. I used my 25% GW birthday month discount. Also picked up a real nice Ping Kushin and Bullseye putter for $4.50 that were in the bin too.

    Scott-



    Have written at length about the MacGregor MT irons with Split-Level soles. Yes, MacGregor called these "Split-Level" soles.



    Tom Weiskopf was in one of their first photo ad campaigns, though he was using a set of 985 Tourney Custom irons when we saw him.



    With 1" long, it's likely you have a Special Order Custom set.



    What's the Reg No?

    3L1E37 is the registration number on the ferrules on all except the 10 iron which has a matching ferrule but no registration number. The 10 iron shaft band also notes it as a Tourney Wedge Extra Length 1" versus Tourney Light Extra Length 1" that is on 2-9 irons. I thought it might be a special order set but the arrow club face markings really puzzle me (unless the customer had a preference for them, or that's what MacGregor told him he was getting)?

    "I thought it might be a special order set but the arrow club face markings really puzzle me ...."



    ?



    According to the Kaplan Compilation of the MacGregor Catalogs-



    Your clubs have the correct clubface design for the 1971 MacGregor Tourney MT with Tourney Lite steel shaft. There are



    photos of the club faces, and these are shown on pp.4-5 of the 1971 MacGregor Catalog.



    It is really an exceptional forging, and the club grind may have been done by either Art Emerson or Don White, who did work on the Split-Level irons.



    In an interview from October, 2012, Don White told me the Split Level irons were the first MacGregor iron grinds he did work on.



    They were very few LH MacGregor MT muscleback models- the one LH MT 10 iron with a muscleback grind like yours had this same clubface < >



    The MT Split-Level irons were one of the rarest LH clubs from MacGregor, as the muscleback grind for nearly every LH MacGregor iron stops at the 9 iron,not the 10.(PW). One of the best examples were the M series Wingback irons



    The back pad continues through the RH sets, some including the Sand Iron. Not so for the LH models.



    And with lightweight steel shafts?



    Yours is indeed a rare set, and their condition makes them quite the find.

    Thanks for the information and background on this set. I only have the first edition Kaplan Mac book that goes through 1970, adding the 2nd edition along with his Wilson book to my acquisition list.

    My dad played MT split soles , pretty sure that exact model. He gamed them in the late 70s thru most of the 80s... he is a callaway Guy now

    I picked up a set of the VIP Split Soles 2-9 with the "1" shafts in them...without a doubt, they are the stoutest shafts I've ever felt in irons. Absolute pipes.
    Old Clubs Only, and there are too many to list.

    Actually have had a couple of oil frackers call me and ask if I'd be interested in smacking shale. Not a bad idea to venture south..it's Sept in the tundra and after the monsoons pass the snow flies. Keep it in mind. Thanks.

    Not to worry, there is a set (or two) of '69 LH MacGregor MT's that fills the bill quite nicely...

    Wow is that ever a nice set of irons! They are in amazing condition. I've never had a chance to try the split-level irons but I sure would like to. I've never run across a set. I must say that a sole that narrow does scare me a little. Maybe even a lot. Ha! Like Stu mentions above, they look like they'd dig clean through to China if you let them get away on you. I guess I'd better get me a set and give em' a rip. Nice find!

    Thanks, Yes, re-shaft new steel shafts on MacGregor Custom MX irons. There are different lofts in 70's.



    Originally. I need more strong loft.

    3 iron - 23 loft.
    22 loft

    4 iron - 27 loft
    26 loft

    5 iron - 30.5 loft
    29 loft

    6 iron - 34 loft

    7 iron - 38 loft

    8 iron - 43 loft

    9 iron - 47 loft



    I worry, I don't want break the bore hosel iron. I think enough.

    OH yeah you are fine in just going 1*. When folks go to jacking them 3 or 4* and jerking on them hard to do so then there is when the problems with breakage start. Most breakages on forged irons come from lie adjustments because that can be radical and again people jerking hard trying to get the number in one big bend

    I'm a little late to this party but I just got a new old stock MT split sole because this is the first set my father ever used and my older brothers also used this, and it was eventually passed on to me. We threw away that set already which had rusted so much and had been through so many regrips, reshafts, and bends. So when this became available brand new, I snagged it and gifted it to my dad whose birthday was a couple of days ago.

    If they had designed the front part of that sole with a bit of bounce angle (like a Ping Eye 2 Plus wedge although maybe not quite to that degree) they would have been a lot more playable. That sort of thing just wasn't done much back then. Regardless those are some beautiful irons pictured above.

    You either get along with split soles or you don't.
    I love 'em!
