    Hey as long as they work and treat you well, why replace them? Just have them refinished and reshafted!

    You are funny. One guy here has "the ball doesn't know what hit it" in his sig. But if you can shoot in the 70's with those, I am sure there is another set out there for you! (Maybe I should try your clubs...)

    I have good news and GREAT news for you!



    First the good news: Here and Here are some Tour XP's for sale.



    Now for the GREAT news. Apparently Mizuno has yet to retire the Tour XP's. Here is the "retired" Mizuno irons list for the horse's mouth......maybe you can get them in "gunmetal"?



    Seriously though, just get the ball in the hole as quick as you can.

    Bought a lefty set of the very same clubs (minus the six iron image/sad.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':(' />) only a month ago. The iron set my ugly game deserves. Those nice Lamkin grips survive only on the three and four irons, condemning the previous owner in absentia.



    Here's me, laying up just short of the fire station with the five iron.



    http://www.swingacademy.com/swinganalysistool.aspx?id=2098



    You wouldn't happen to know in what year they came on the market? Finding info on these clubs is tough.


    I can't find the exact year (Mizuno won't discuss these gems) but I know they were released between 83 & 86. I also know the trade-in value is 20 bones. Yeah.




    I had a set identical to those but they were called MRX not XP. I also wondered why I could find zero info. about them online, lol. My dad bought them for $9 at a yard sale... had to talk them down from $10 they were so **** ugly I guess, lol. Thanks for the laugh man, funny stuff. If I played you, saw you hit those ugly a$$ things all over the stick then pull out that Mills I'd be like "Oh $hit, here we go again, I've been hustled". lol.

    I remember once I bought a Mizuno MDX driver with a steel shaft. Wasn't anywhere near the latest or greatest, but I hit it a ton and split fairways all the time. I just couldn't bring myself to keep it, even though it was the best performing. I wish I had your backbone to stick with what works! After all, the only thing that matters in the end is the score. Plus, with those clubs, you could take some serious cash off people ... you could get straight up bets off tons of people while sporting those bad boys. Take the money and keep them in the bag.

    I'm shallow. I'm not the club ho I appear to be... all the irons over the past two years have been because I'm a shallow, shallow man.





    Shallowness might be your salvation.



    Buy a nice new set of iron covers and ask LaMont to turn them into classy classics - I favor a Big Break look with sizable, rough-hewn grey rock against a black neoprene background.



    This gives you something pleasant to look at while playing and allows you to justify telling anyone commenting on your irons that they were a tribute set made for Titanic Thompson, the Roaring Twenties version of John Daly.

    The offset on the wedge is making me nauseous .

    I can tell you that you will never loose these clubs on course...

    These fit in well with the lost irons, lying in the basement of the pro shop ( looking for my lost 5 iron ).



    Lastly you are an honest man ......

    To truely come clean you need to show us the iron covers that you use to cover those bad boys. C'mon now, you know it will feel good, its good therapy!





    Come to think of it I think you would need rocket head covers for those soles.

    Can you imagine if these slipped and hit someone in the melon? The embarrassment in court when they showed pictures of these...






    This one takes the cake for the hilarious comment of 2008 on the board .

    This has to be the funniest post on here! I also had a set of these clubs, bought them when I first joined the Air Force. Bought them at Service Merchandise (i think that what it was called) when I went to Tech School. Had to get rid of them 'cause I always took a divot i could bury a small dog in.



    Too funny, and thanks for the memories!

    Do you really think I am going to take these to a shop and to have that stuff done? It'd be like taking a blow-up doll on a date to a fancy restaurant.

    P.S. I just returned from a trip to Orlando. If there are any Ping fans here, you may want to keep an eye on the BST in a week for an "almost new" set of Pings.



    That's all I'm saying...

    In defense of a fellow roughed up bucky fan, I too own a crappy set of sticks that are hard to keep out of the bag. Although my Ci7's are wonderful I am yet to part with my ghastly 855's. I even shot my low round last year with these beasties. Sometimes you just have to admit that the ugly redheaded stepchild is a genius and work with it a bit. Either that or hide them in the attic like I do.......not the kid the clubs genius.

    I too have an ugly stick thats sits amongst my shiny mizuno blades and modern Titlest driver/wedges. The 'ole Yonex Rekin super03 - still has the original cord grip that is so frayed it has bits of string sticking out all over the place. Nice scuffs on the crown too after some ladies drove over it with a golf cart at a charity tournament. Everyone makes fun of it until it works its magic.... At least I think this thing was made in the early 90s...

    Man. That was funny and reminded me so much of myself 5 years ago... I had every **** iron set in the book and just could not hit any worth a **** until I picked up some 2004 big bertha irons. Although shovels in their own rights, they allowed me to hit the ball consistently which is what I needed. That being said, I finally realized that playing irons for 2 weeks or even 2 months was not enough time to get used to them in order to hit the shots you want. Least to say, I only played them for about 4 months and took my HC from a 10 to a 2. I have had the same irons (X-Forged) in the bag for over a year and can honestly say I feel completely comfortable with them and can hit any shot I want with them. That is likely really the reason you play those so well. Give some others more of a chance to make the bag and maybe some others will work. If you have, than I apologize and am well off mark. Just wish someone would have gave me that advice 8 years ago and 175 sets of irons earlier... I dig those irons though. Went through a mizzy phase myself with blades and loved the MP 11s for 2 weeks image/rolleyes.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':rolleyes:' />
