Those were 800 bucks in 2002 according to PGA value guide. They look nice and in good condition. I hope you enjoy them. I see you are in Dayton OH, are you a Guided By Voices fan?

Hello Snapfade.

 

            Fun to know these Clevlands were once valuable. I am well aware of Guided By Voices and their cult following. My neighbor across the street was actually collaborating with one of the GBV members a year or two ago so I would see him pull up.(Not sure which member).

I haven't devoted any time to listen to the band yet. Just a youtube video or two.

         As for the Clevelands. I am not over the moon about the shafts. Much heavier feel then my old Ram's with fiber shafts. I recently picked up a mint complete set of Mcgregor Jack Nicklaus CG1800s with steel shafts  3-SW + 1,3,5 wood that feel alot lighter/ better to swing for a high handicapped like myself. After playing a great back 9 with a set of 70's macgregor tourney blades the other day I have learned a ton about my swing and look forward to revisiting the Clevelands soon. I also just added a matching 3 iron to my Cleveland set. I thought I wouldn't miss a 3 iron but to me it's just not a full bag without one reguardless of how infrequently I hit it,lol. I  had a considerable gap between my 21 degree hybrid (175-200 yds) and my 4 iron (145-165 yds).

 

Cheers-

I was just checking out the PGA info on the clubs and saw this " • Designed for women golfers of every skill level"  Ha, I didn't think TA7s were a womens club?

Maybe this is why I struggle to hit them as 6'1 225# man.

Are those 1970's MacGregors straight blades? As in no cavity or what not? If so, those are hard clubs to hit, not very forgiving at all.

I don't know the correct answer. I consider them blades but there is definitely a shape to them.Once I shortened my swing I was nailing greens with these things and getting my usualy distance, the greens were litteraly frozen solid though so balls were bouncing off or rolling to the back edge often.
