Old persimmon fairway wood

11 posts in this topic

I have an old fairway 7 wood that belonged to my dad and have been unable to find out any information about the club.  It has V.I.D. stamped on the bottom plate and in the wood on the side.  It has a steel shaft and the original label on the shaft says it is a light weight.

Would appreciate any help in letting me know anything about this club.

Thanks,

cj

its not persimmon its a lamenated head. persimmon is a solid block of wood. could have been made by a local club maker.

Thanks for clearing that up.  Thought my Dad had bought better clubs for that time period - guess I was wrong!!  I'll keep it anyway as a remembrance.

Nothing wrong with laminate. The old Ping woods were laminate.

It are at least 40-70 years old.  Do not know when he bought it, and it may be older than that.  I know I remember seeing it in his bag 40=45 years ago, but it was bought how long before that - your guess is as good as mine.  I can tell you he lived all of his life in Baltimore, MD and he probably bought the club there if that helps.

I had the same trouble with my father-in-law woods.  They were from the 1930s.  I could not find the manufacturer anywhere.  It may have been a local maker.
