I was lucky enough to find a set of practically new Ben Hogan Apex Plus irons in a little shop in OKC. These were one of my favorite irons of all time. And now with this set back in the bag, I am a happy golfer! I couldn't believe the condition of these irons... looks like they were never used. They will now be in play as my number 1 set. I'll post pics when I can.

    No, although someone came in and tried to sell some PXGs they found that way...the police took care of that!

    They are a small Shop, but friendly and helpful as can be. They take trade ins as well since it is a used club store. Pretty good selection though. Mostly higher end stuff.

    Funny...their business card says "Strictly Golf" but I believe it is actually called "Strictly Used Golf"

    I'm assuming you got the Apex shafts. What did you pay for the set, 3-E?

    Oh i have been there! Nice guy who runs it. They have a lot of mizuno stuff and really try to push it. I believe he told me any thing i wanted to test i could take to the hefner range and try it out before i buy it, which was pretty cool.

    Nice find, and nice that you went right ahead and bought them without a second thought.

    well they are 20 years old, but still looking fresh! I am changing the grips to midsize velvets though...so they will lose some points.

    If they have the OEM grips, save them if you can ( use air compressor and a little solvent ).
    They can bring a few bucks.

    In that case, I would also check the epoxy or go ahead to re-epoxy the whole set before you put them in play/ While changing grips also check the inside of the shaft for sign of rust for safety.
    Nice pretty set !
