Central guide to classic clubs on the internet?


Recommended Posts

I have the Kaplan books, catalogues, etc- but it would be great to have a guide on the internet for classic persimmon woods by year and manufacture, with pictures. oes anyone know of any? I find top 10 lists and thing like that, but no real places where pictures, ad, specs, etc are all in one place. Does anyone know of such a place, or is anyone interested in creating one?

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 the viewing.

The post contains a succession of scanned pages (about 70?) that together provide a breadth of information about MacGregor, Spalding, and Wilson clubs manufactured prior to 1978. The Retail Price Range figures that accompany the brief descriptions of the various sets of clubs are of course well out of date, but they might possibly still serve as a comparative measure as you hunt for these classic clubs in the present day.

Navigation within the post is a bit clunky; just click on each page image to view it in full. You'll quickly get the hang of it.

And this by no means is all the information that the ABS site offers. You can truly get deep into the woods there. (Maybe not the best of metaphors here...) I know I have.

Would try and locate a copy of Maltby's "The Golf Club Identification and Price Guide IV". The last edition to the best of my knowledge. Comprehensive in scope. Does contain pictures and descriptives, one has to parse through the information to date clubs. But one can usually narrow down with accuracy the age. Worthwhile addition to any club ID library. They occasionally show up on eBay. There are earlier editions as well.

Unfortunately, Persimmon Golf Today appears to be fully defunct. That was a good resource for persimmon wood information in particular. Perhaps some of the "Wayback Machine" search tools could dig up some of the forum archives.
