Found these Powerbilt Citation irons 3 thru 9 B flex (reg) and this Hogan Sure out. At goodwill. 2.99 each. Did not buy as I'm trying to get rid of stuff. A.so a rea funky looking iron set with extremes offset.

Those Power Bilt irons are the famous 66 thru 70 Horse Shoe Citations ( Slang term) Trade name is Levelume just like it says. Those are similar to the ones I played for years except mine were custom ground ( not for me) and had a thinner butter knife sole like a Mac VIP.

they were still there when I went back and picked up the Hogan wedge. I stopped at another GW that usually has nothing and I almost didn’t stop. Posting in a minute or two of what I found there.

 

Where are these magical goodwills? The best things I’ve ever seen in Seattle was a 4/10 condition set of ’74 Hogan directors. In California a set of fluid feels (that I bought) and 6/10 bounce soles which I didn’t. You are always finding full sets of VIP’s.

In Finland they simply don’t have golf clubs, but if you’d like cross country skis I can set you up!

1966 is possibly my favorite year for the Dynapowers.  The Turfriders are up there in my mind too.  They both feel and play very differently.  Things started changing in 1966 with the blade designs at

Another set of Top-Flites for me.   I just about have all the 1980’s era Spalding irons now.  This set was owned and played by PGA professional Jerry McGee.  McGee won twice in 1979 but retired from t

Keeping the Spalding love going I picked up this set from our own Teevons.   I’m guessing late 50’s Gene Littler models.  Cleaned them up today and gave the grips a conditioning with the Fiebing’s 4-w

James it depends on the area--- Here we are the self described "Golf Capital" of the world-- We have lots of retirees that were club hoes. Then sadly they pass away and the kids are in a hurry to sell the house and take Mom back up North. They clean out the house and the stuff goes to either Goodwill or to the scrapyard I work at. On the other hand believe it or not we have some retirees with disposable income who will buy the latest and greatest. Far as classic club hoes around here there is my buddy Bear and myself, his brother Checkers to some extent. The only WRXer I know around here that is a classic Ho is Nixlix. I have not met him in person yet but we do frequent the same GW on occasion.

Shocker--- I started running sound at another church 2 weeks ago and come to find out the interim pastor lives up in Little River SC ( North of me) and he is a classic club ho too. LOL his wife is ready to kill him-- he loves the thrifts and yard sales

I've seen more than a few old putters with those old taper at the top grips.

some clubs with Silhouette grips, too.

 

the question is, WWSD ?

I just picked up these. There is some work that is needed to be done to them. Driver has some issues with the wood between the insert and toe. The 3 wood has a scar towards the back. The 4 wood has a little bigger scar and some missing wood. I'll end up sending these to Dave Wood and I know he will make these outstanding.

Set of Cobra TVD-II Aluminum Bronze V-Groove irons came in from Ebay. 3-SW set. Shafted with TT Gold Plus S200 shafts. I like the look of them, but they have a funky reverse offset I see was popular back in the day in Japan.

 

I had no idea what these were, but a helpful WRX poster told me they may be a special order only set from 1993 or so?

 

I'm debating polishing them up to their original bronze glory, or leaving then patina'd. The wear on the soles makes them look slightly uneven to me.

Those are sweet man. I’d keep them just as they are. I love the patina.

Got a set of KZG classics. More pics after build.

Trust me you will like them especially when you get the shafts matched up for your swing---- I would not say this on the main forums because I would get flamed ( I am among friends here)--- Get the shafts matched up for you and those have better feel than any Miura or Mizuno--- I believe DJ will back me up on that. I am absolutely in love with my 1st generation CBs. Those are some of the earlier Kyoei forgings

funny you mention that Stu,

I was walking past my BeCu bag last night and spotted this Mac 314 putter.

forgot I had it. almost disappeared in there because I hadn't cleaned it up.

so....turned it into this.

then realized I have too many, a bunch of the same style.

see what a long winter makes a fella do ?

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
