  1. Appreciate the reply, bbut I need the 1960 Power Thrust. Have the 2,4,6,8 and if I could not fill the missing ones, will let them go to someone who could use the partial set to fill their missing clubs in the set.
  2. 1960 Ben Hogan Power Thrust. B y chance, picked up a half set of 2,4,6,8. Looking for all or part of the 3,5,7,9,E. The half set has the S flex True Temper PRO FIT shaft. Look all original with numbered ferrules, original Hogan grips ( red lines in black rubber grips with reminder, and long at 11.5" ). Cleaned up really nice. The unusual thing is, the 8 iron measures 37", which is 1/2" longer than the newer irons and certainly longer than the rest of the 1960 models. Wondering if Hogan made custom golf clubs for the general public or this was a custom set for profess
  3. Always wanted to try a Cobra fairway wood. Love that matte black finish.
  4. True Temper TX 90, yes, it does come in 0.335. I use it in the fairway woods.
  5. Use masking or painter tape, and a few drops of lubricant. I had use grip solvent, or even water...... don't need much and drys up quickly. Grip will be ready to use immediately If the I.D. of the grip fits the O.D. of the shaft. To prevent the grip from ballooning , use a shield for the grip. I had used the cut off plastic club tube ( the kind you insert into the bag to keep the shafts from tangling ), or a hard cardboard tube from Saran Wrap ( not the flimsy kind, the one which is made of heavy material ) or had used a piece of plastic tube from hardware store. You only need to prot
  6. Go to the driving range with your current equipment and spend some time there. From there, figuring out which way you should be heading. Whether you want a softer flex, standard length, more forgiving head design........... The high road is to get fitted , and the easiest way is to spend sometime on the driving range to figure out for yourself. It all depends on your current physical condition, the size of your wallet and how much time you have to get to the standard you set for yourself. Newer equipment will help your playing, and you were once a decent golfer, that's like riding a bicyc
  7. They had shared their experience and all valid points. Especially the starting small part. Just want to add one thing, eventually, you'll have to look into coverage for error and omission. All components these day are so expensive, one mistake will set you back a long way if you do not have the coverage for error and omission. Ask your insurance representative, some home policy will cover this is you do not have a full fledged business front. $600 head and $800 shaft will be difficult to swallow. Think how many rounds of green fees equal to that ? Even when doing your "friends" a favor, t

You've got no more a shot at rebuilding a 50-year-old swing than you do of becoming a concert pianist. I know a lot of re
  10. Usually, the serial number is the golf club's birth certificate. Manufacturer should be able to authenticate it. OEM like Ping even have the complete history of a set of clubs, when it was made, the original spec, where it was shipped to ( no previous owner's info for obvious reason but they'll tell you the City it was sent to ). The counterfeits have lower quality and performance, usually it's lighter and not balanced as well as the OEM products. You can tell by the finishing, the performance....... There is a large quantity of "USED" counterfeits on the markets now. A few decades ago
  11. 27 years.... Did you realize that most the golfers have never scored par or better ? A majority of the weekend golfers never even broke 80s in their life long golfing experience. The first for par or better is always the best. Now the mental barrier is down, go get more. Par is obtainable by design but birdie every hole is a dream that we keep chasing after.

If he could not tell you what was causing the issue then, time to dump him. You two are not a good match. Neither one of you may be at fault, it just didn't work out.

  14. If your instructor witness your golf swing after the lesson and said that you had a mental block....? I would have a discussion with him to find out what exactly did he mean. If he could not tell you what was causing the issue then, time to dump him. You two are not a good match. Neither one of you may be at fault, it just didn't work out. Very seldom anyone will marry their first date, not that's impossible, it just does not happen often. We all have different physical ability, our athletic ability are different, our physical frame are different and most of all, we're in different age
  15. I can see the smidgen of epoxy on the ferrule. You'll need to be a little more generous on the epoxy and not thinking of saving the ferrule down the road if you don't want to reset the ferrule. Reset the ferrule is not a big deal, but the shaft better be prep and epoxy the right way.
