Old blades with modern shafts

seeing as blades have not changed much (how much can you really do to a flat piece of steel?) I think it is a good idea. If you find a blade you really like and a modern shaft, go ahead. I think (if the shaft is fit well) it will only increase performance. I would say though that I find many modern blades to be better performing.

I have a set, 3-SW, of old TM Tour Preferred blades from the mid '80s...I drilled out the tapered hosels to parellel and have Apollo Spectre light shafts in them....put all the swing weights right at D-3...Awesome set up....I use them with Louisville Golf persimmon driver,3 wd, 5 wd.......only in good weather when I am feeling a bit "Old School"

I did and do the same. Drilled out some Powerbilt Citations and put TT Black Gold x-100's soft stepped in. My "old school" woods are Cleveland Classic TC-15's and they are great. Wish they still made Balata balls and the "tips" only played around 6,800 - 7,000 yds.

My club maker has a set of MP-32s with C Tapers. I think the heads are[b][u] 8 years old[/u][/b] and the shafts are < 2 months.

not sure this is what hte OP meant by "old." i know, it's ancient by WRX standards. but i think he was going more for the "classic" blade question.

Correct.

One of my Redline sets has Nippon 1150s. I'm tempted to put a spare set of Monacos in another set of Redlines. I'm also tempted to put a set of Apex 4s in my TBs. Ain't nothing wrong with the older shafts other than manufacturing consistency. I've got 3 sets of Apex 4s which I'd readily use instead of any KBS shaft.
