Vintage Macgregor Iron Shafts


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am looking to buy a cheap set of vintage blades to play with a set of Macgregor Muirfield woods that I recently fell in love with. I have seen sets with a Pro-Pel Action #2 Firm shaft and have read that it is comparable to a modern day stiff shaft. The woods have Dynamic stiff shafts and have s300 in my current irons, would it be better to go with irons with shafts I am familiar with? How would the Pro-Pel Action #2 compare to the Dynamic stiff or s300?

Thanks!

Welcome to the vintage world of golf chazpet. Your woods are from the early 1980’s so if you are looking for something that matches well with them I’d find a set of Muirfield irons from the same era. Steel shafts haven’t really changed much since the 1980’s considering TT Dynamic Gold shafts have been around for nearly 40 years now and are still used by many players.

 

As for the Pro-Pel 2 shaft, personally I wouldn’t consider it the same stiffness of a modern stiff flex and it is nowhere near the stiffness of DG S300’s. The DG’s have a stiff tip section while the Pro-Pel #2 feels like it has a much more active tip section. Two totally different shafts as the Pro-Pel #2 hits the ball much higher than a Dynamic Gold shaft.

 

I’d say the Pro-Pel #2 shaft felt more like a Hogan Apex shaft which is like a TT Dynalite. And I’d say it felt like a “tweeter”, kinda between a regular and stiff, but nowhere close to a DG S300.

I haven’t played either although the Muirfields have always been on my list of clubs to get at some point. The Muirfield’s are one of the most sought after clubs from the 1980’s. That’s the set I’d go for.
