Question on OLD Infiniti Irons


Recommended Posts

I was fit for clubs back in 2001 back in the Chicago area, and the fitter put me into Infiniti 603 irons. These aren't mine, but they're the same model:

I'm trying to figure out the stock lofts on these... I have a set of 3-SW. 

 

I tried the Infiniti Golf web site, and sent an email via their contact page with no response. After a week, I tried dialing the phone number on the web site, and it's no longer in service. 

 

So I'm here... Anyone know the guy from Infiniti? Anyone know the lofts? 

 

I figure next step is either just getting them measured, or buying my own loft gauge and measuring them myself...

I've never heard of them, so I did a quick search, appears that even their Facebook page hasn't been updated in 3 years so getting direct info may not be possible. Hopefully you can track down the inf

I did that this morning.  I got some parts of their site for the time in question, but nothing for the irons.   Maybe the OP can try some more.  Just google web archive and go from there.

The guy’s name was Eric Yeh.  If that helps you search.

 

Many thanks! Just found him on LinkedIn and sent him the question. So... If he's still alive and checking LinkedIn ever, maybe he'll respond. But that's closer than I've been able to get otherwise.

As an aside, these are now almost 20 year old clubs... So loft and lie might have changed. 

 

Whether I can get the stock lofts or not, they might need to be measured anyway.

 

What's a fair cost to have the clubs measured for both lofts and lie at a shop? I would only have the shop bend them if one or more of the clubs was simply out of whack compared to the set, as the goal is to get re-fit later in 2021 for the whole bag.

I can’t speak for all of the Infiniti heads but I have a buddy who used to do builds for them at Blue Mash golf course in Maryland and he told me at the time that their Tour lineup heads were forged in Japan. Those heads were nice looking compact musclebacks that looked similar to Bridgestones. I think he still has some around. Pretty sure this was a small company based near Chicago that tried to do an early direct to consumer model that didn’t make it.

Yeah, I think that's right. I probably would never have heard of them except that the clubfitter was in Winfield, IL which is right between Glen Ellyn (where the Infiniti web site says they're based) and West Chicago (where LinkedIn says Eric is based). 

 

That said, having his name was the only real clue I had.

 

Maybe I'll just have to get the lofts and lies checked locally.

It shouldn't cost much for a clubmaker to measure them.  Any that are off compared to the others will show up and can be adjusted to fall into line.  Infiniti irons were easy to adjust, at least in the mid-2000s.
