    Dang, love the looks of those Norman’s. I might need to grab a set of those although I’m sure they wouldn’t look that nice. Yours are stunning! Enjoy them!

    Nice! I play the NV 65s as most clubs I like are from that era. And I have that putter cover as I find it to be the best option heel shafted option there is.

    Awesome setup. Do you ever find you have a situation where the 6 or 8 iron is missed?
    Please tell me more about those Norman blades: trajectory, turf interaction, etc... Are you a sweeper or digger?

    I've played with blades/muscle backs most of my life. Just prefer a simple looking iron and these are my first reverse muscle back design. Don't have much info on the clubs other than whats been posted on this site. They're from the early 90s and supposedly Macgregor irons stamped Cobra. They don't play any different from previous blade designs as far as trajectory or turf and I'm a digger. Don't miss playing a full set of irons - I just choke down on say a 5 iron to make it a 6. There's obviously not much forgiveness which I found out quickly when I first got them. Couldn't handle the TTDG 130 gram X100 shafts but installed my preferred TTDG 95 gram R300s and they're sweet now. Thanks for the interest!

    3 wood (15 deg) - 250 yards, 5 wood (20 deg) - 210.
    I'm not playing my 10.5 or 23 degree PTs but I was hitting them 270 & 200.

    I'm hitting them what I consider normal distances of newer gear plus I like the smaller head. Got rid of 10.5 BUT keeping the 23 degree model - I'll shorten it one of these days to fill the gap better between my 5 iron and 5 wood. Anyway, thanks!
