    Very nice. If you don't mind me asking, how much did you get them for? Surely not the sticker price of $999.95.

    no chance. 499 US plus plus plus plus.
    Would have paid 1500 in all honesty.

    Congrats. For a noob like myself, what is so special about them? I've never even heard of mp-53's lol

    KG,
    Congrats on the find, glad you were finally able to locate them after your relative lack of enthusiasm over the refinished set. Even if those were stunning in appearance, much better to find actual set up you wanted all along👍

    honestly the refinishing made the irons feel different. Really different actually. The Black Vokeys were Rocks compared to the unfinished SM2.

    Funny, I just bought a set of 53s on Kijiji today. Very minty condition (don't look to have more than 30 rounds on them) w/ KBS Tour stiffs. Can't wait to give them a go tonight, absolutely great looking irons. Congrats on the purchase OP!

  • farmerfarmer Members Posts: 7,894 ✭✭

    I'd be interested in the backstory. Someone's husband dies and the widow forgets about them? Proshop goes out of business and years later someone looks in the backroom and behold! I actually knew a guy who won a set of irons in a raffle, put them up and forgot about them.

    I'm guessing a ebay selling bought old stock from a small pro shop or golf store? They were in plastic and the grips were still in plastic and aren't dryed out lead me to believe they were in a box definitely not on display.
    Can't wait to put them into play tomorrow

    What a great find. My Studio Stainless Scotty was similar though not in plastic. Guy bought it in '04 (he gave me the Golftown receipt), used it a couple of times, then stuck it in the closet. Thing was new. These are the finds you don't let go of.

    Use them until they're browned to all f**k. Tools not jewels!

    Are you familiar with the term "I WIN!"?

  • hardcaliberhardcaliber Members Posts: 712 ✭✭

    I also recently found a nice set of these. Gonna swap out the shafts sometime this summer and give them a run. My all time favorite irons are the MP-15’s. Between hoarding older classics and the new mp series out later this year, I’ll be spending a lot of money on the running bird.

  • kgeorge78kgeorge78 Members Posts: 7,824 ✭✭

    Took them out last night. I played like crap. But I love my irons.

    Didn't know 53's were so popular. A local course in my area closed doors and had a new, in plastic set for $450 if I recall. Thought nothing of it at the time.
