  1. I'm in the Chicago area too, up in Wauconda. I came back to persimmon in 2013, and I've stuck with vintage clubs ever since. Count me in!
  2. shell23: I'm a longtime lurker here in the Classic Golf and Golfers section. Because I too have only just a few GolfWRX posts to my name as yet, I cannot post a link. I'm going to have to describe a path for you instead. Hoping this helps... 1) Search Google for "advanced ball striking learn about classic gear" 2) Click the topmost link (entitled "Learn about Classic Gear - Advanced Ball Striking * View forum") 3) Once there, scroll down to the "Classic Golf Clubs Price List and Information" post. (Apologies if you're already aware of it.) No further comments can be added, but it's well worth
  3. I’ve got a set of MacGregor Tourney M75 irons in which the yellow/red/yellow ferrule rings on a few of the irons have started to separate from one another. I first tried sparingly toothpicking some super glue into the gaps between the rings in an effort to keep the rings in place. That didn’t hold for more than a few rounds. Next I tried using a clear epoxy instead of super glue. And further, to help hold the rings in place from the outside too (belt-and-suspenders method), I wiped a thin coat of the clear epoxy over the rejoined rings. I’ve got a full season in with these irons since then, an
  4. Bella: Please forgive me for a slight threadjack, but your information about 693 serial numbers and likely vintage has me curious about the Tommy Armour 653s I’ve been playing now for the last few years. Inserts on my 1-4 set are red with four screws in diamond pattern, and that and the number of scoring lines match what I see in my Kaplan for 1949-1953. Would the silver-banded True Temper Tourney shafts then further suggest 1949 or 1950 for 653s just as they do for 693s? Because I bought these clubs to play, I have refinished them as best I could following the procedures outlined by Dave Wood
  5. First time commenter, longtime lurker. For what it's worth, I'd like to give Majestic Oaks a whirl. The length from the blues is what I usually play, the Fall Prime price seems fair (given that a cart is mandatory), and it's relatively close to home for me. Trees I can deal with; it's prairie grass that gives me fits.
