Seen these on ebay and never seen a set like them before, looks like some sort of torched finish? also looks like a leading edge grind, just curious really, without knowing what the shafts are i would never buy them

Definitely a tour issue 20 groove light head version

    that looks like they stripping the finish and possibly some grind work. Doesn't look like a different head. I would be cautious.

    The L 20 stamped on the hosel denotes the lighter version head with the 20 "groove"


    If the chrome had just been stripped im not sure they would go that colour would they? seems to be more of a darker grey sort of finish, rather than a raw steel/rusty finish

    From the looks they're just a raw finish eg: Xander Schauffele's raw apex pro 19's.

    As for the shafts, going off the true temper dynamic gold screen printing on the pic with barcode says to me they're DG X100.

    They look nice
