PS-5000 irons?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I've recently bought a complete set of irons and woods on the fleamarket and was wondering if anyone knows anything about them.

 

They only say "PS-5000" on them and the word "Lite" in the cavity. Construction seems very decent though, with TT-Lite shafts (R) and Lamkin silhouette grips, which like the clubs are in excellent condition. I have no idea what they are and failed to find a single piece of information on the internet so far, but these actually are sweet irons (the woods are terribly dated), from the early nineties I'd reckon. Very precise and fun to play with, probably due to / aided by the fact that these shafts seem a very good match for me. Given how much I've enjoyed hitting them so far and the fact that I got the full set for 10 EUR, these might be the steal of the century for me. f3_laugh.gif

 

I'd love to know more about them, so every bit of help / info is appreciated. Cheers!

gutten tag wolfy,

     I recently bought a full set of ps5000 irons at a thrift store in Birmingham, Alabama that sound exactly like the ones you describe. Same shafts and grips and in the same excellent condition. Odd, huh? I have found no others online and no one in the extensive golf community around here has ever seen them either. Like you, I really like the way they hit, and like you, pitched the woods for more modern ones. You don't write like english is your second language, I'm guessing U.S. military? Anyway, we seem to be alike in our taste in ballhammers. If you find out anymore about them, please let me know.     

                 Best regards-

Very interesting...

 

I managed, somehow to inherit a set of these from a cousin who discarded them as soon as he started earning cash and the yuppie bug bit and he NEEDED very expensive clubs.

I have looked for info on these clubs a few times, found nothing.

 

I have not got the chance to hit them yet so I don't know how they feel, but exactly the same shafts and grips as yours.

My grips might not be in the same condition as yours though, as they've gone kinda shiny. But they're nowhere near as old as the Ben hogan Blades I got a couple of years back.

 

Please do keep us posted if you find anything.

 

PS. These seem well travelled as I'm from South Africa. Quite far from you guys.
