  1. It's a funny question by the OP. Who's crazier: - Golfer A spends $100 on a vintage bag, irons, and persimmons. Hits them at the range and course, accepts the challenge and outcomes, has a good time. - Golfer B spends $3,000 on a fitted set of of OEM clubs. Hits them on the range and course. Bag looks shiny and has a good time... Until he needs to spend $300 on a new driver shaft to lower spin by 200 revs, or replace the wedges after a year, or looks at his scores and realizes he's still a 15 hcp.... The point is golf is to have fun unless you're in the minority that ma
  2. I can't answer any of your questions, but congrats on the find! I think they look great, and 2 woods are really nice driving clubs for many people. It looks like the bore is .277 if I'm reading that right? You might have to make that larger or find some old shafts. Basically any wood shaft made today is going to be .335. You will have to update us when you get one shafted up.
  3. I plan to leave them as-is. I like them completely black. I have a modern driver that is all Matte Black, so these will look good in the "modern" bag. It only has 3 modern clubs, lol... It was a fun find. The seller didn't do the rebuild himself though, so he didn't have all the information on what was done. They're in great shape.
  4. Found these by the dumpster, and decided to save them. If anyone wants to pay shipping, they're yours. I'll drop them at Goodwill if no one is interested. Irons are 5,6,8,9,PW (missing 7 iron). Bag's in good shape. Not sure if I'll keep that, but if someone else wants it just let me know.
  5. Bought a set of 56-57 dynas refinished in black w/S300s. Interesting eBay find. I'm not sure who did the black, hopefully it holds up okay. 3-PW plus a Triple Duty wedge!
  6. I have a scar on my right hand with a nice story. I took my now wife to a driving range to hit some balls. We weren't even dating at the time and not on great terms necessarily. I was supposed to leave the next day to go with a friend to work for a few months between college semesters. The place we were working was a few hours away. Anyway, I had a set of Nike Blades with X100s and was hitting the 4 iron. On one swing, the thing snaps underneath the grip on the downswing and the club goes out into the range. I start laughing as I've never seen anything like that before. I then reali
  7. It's your free time, enjoy it any way you'd like. I went so far as playing in a tournament last year with vintage stuff and no one bothered me much. I made sure it was so within the rules of the tourney ahead of time.
  8. I finally broke down and got one. The driver looks amazing in person! I love the smaller head size and the shaping is perfect IMO. Like the matte black as well. Hope it performs well. I got the 11 degree head, 56 lie, 2 open.
  9. Seeing as I'm one of the younger persimmon enthusiasts around here, I vote you send them to me! More seriously, eBay is a good option. If you aren't worried about recouping money and/or have some less valuable ones, drop them at a thrift/Goodwill spot.
  10. Closing this out. No interest and will be moving them to eBay
  11. I'm 6'3" and play my irons 2-3 degrees flat, so those charts aren't perfect! Old pings sell well though, so you'll do well either way.
  12. I don't consciously square the clubface. I will manipulate it a bit open or closed for certain shots.
  13. PM me an offer and I'll consider it. I don't really have a use for the shafts, so would prefer moving both if possible.
  14. Probably 4 years ago I got a huge lot of woods from Teevons. Most are in poor shape. They can be fixed up or used for parts. Most are not worth much as far as I can tell. I've fixed up a handful for personal use and gave away others. I don't know how many are left, I'm guessing 100-150. They're just sitting in my storage unit and my life is busy. I'll probably never do much with them. If anyone wants them, they're yours for free if you can pick them up (expensive to ship). I'm in Southern Wisconsin. I would hate to just toss them, but am considering it. I am not selling these, so hop
