Those look great! Did you weigh them before as after to see how much weight you would have to add back?

I sent them to Doug at Oughton's Golf based on the recommendation of others in this thread. The fact he was far less expensive at $15/head was just gravy. Took about a week and a half to get them back and they went from South Carolina to Doug in California, and back to me.

I recently picked up a set of raw Adams MB2 irons (3-PW) w/ stiff KBS Tour shafts. The CBX wedges are raw as well and have patina'd more since the pic above. I joked in a previous post that there's a little reverse logic with the blade irons/cavity back wedges but it works.

My clubs are far from as rusty as I've seen but they don't make a mess. My instructor has a set of completely rusted out Apex MB irons and they didn't leave any residue when I handled them. Same for his SM7 wedges.

I've only ever seen it be an issue with clubs that have accumulated lots of excess rust during either intentional efforts to rust them (leaving them outside in wet weather etc) or during long periods of storage. The rust that gets everywhere is excess built up rust that you never really get on clubs that are seeing any amount of even irregular usage. If that were a problem, you would see pros putting giant rust streaks on their golf balls everytime they used a raw wedge. ?

Added a fresh spritz of patina juice to my irons and wedges today... They should be nice and ready for the weekend.

They were a bit light but I added tip weights to get swing weight right. Grooves are fine and spin rates are normal. The set was heavily used before I had them stripped. No noticeable difference in performance after stripping. I’d encourage you to get it done, but then there’s be one more set of raw 680’s in the world! Haha

I think stripping a well used set of irons is great, cost effective way of breathing new life into a set. Browning on the face doesn’t look bad when the whole head is brown.

The orange "rust" is flaky and what you'll initially see if you put them in saltwater, or something else to accelerate the process, and yes, that will come off on your hands.

The "patina" is actually the iron oxide layer that forms gradually over time and does not come off on your hands, towel, etc. Even though it is rust, it is actually protecting the metal from further corrosion.

Personally, I don't like the looks of the clubs while waiting for the oxide layer to build up which is why I always put gun blue on my raw heads when I initially get them back. Eventually the color will go from a blueish black to a dark chocolate brown and the only bare metal you'll ever see will be on the soles if you're playing/practicing a lot, especially if it's sandy soil, and on the face where you hit the ball most often...which looks absolutely baller as long as it's on the sweet spot.

Finally after searching for a while now (and not finding an affordable set) i have found some Vega VDC-01 First prototype irons, im hoping they arrive today, but the pic is the actual ones.

 

Shafted with KBS C-Taper 125S+ shafts, the nice seller sent them to his club builder to adjust the loft and lie spec's for me - 1* weaker lofts, 1* flat lie from standard
