Macgregor Forged Irons

Hello. Looking to buy a set of old Macgregor irons for playing with ? When were they at their best and is there a set that stands out as their finest quality ? My initial reading seems to suggest that 1978 - 1982 was  a great period, linked to David Graham and Jack Nicklaus ?

I would be prepared to even buy a tatty rusty set and have them refurbished with 2020 shafts  etc etc.....

Lastly, is there a certain BOOK on the market that will identify clubs and aged them accurately ?

Regards, Mark.

My favorite older MacGregor irons are the PCB Tour Forged.  They date, I believe, back to 2000.  The set runs 3 thru pitching wedge and the lofts are approx. one club weaker than my current set(s).  I bought them used, several years ago, intending to harvest the shafts.  After playing a round with them I decided to keep them intact.

P.S.  Although I do not recall, specifically, what I paid for them it cannot have been more than 40-50 bucks.  Most of my older name-brand stuff came from thrift stores and yard sales.

    • I’d like to see this evaluation done with the Mevo+. I’d like to know how the horizontal launch angle and spin axis compares to GC4. I do know that for the regular Mevo, the data I get hitting into my net is very similar to what I see in lessons with GC4. Hopefully they get to it at some point. One thing about TXG guys is that I can’t tell how sincere they are - don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the content they create, and watch many of their reviews, but I haven’t ever seen them outright say something sucks, which makes me a touch skeptical of their motives.
    • I thought I heard them say that they'd be doing more launch monitors. I'd guess Mevo will be one of them - if I heard correctly.
    • Day 346 Superspeed workout. Just sticking with protocol 2 until January when the TST superspeed accountability/progress group kicks off. Also did some tempo drills while getting warm for the superspeed stuff. 
    • Day 75 - More swings inside, really focused on the first part of my takeaway.
    • They did do this in an episode, and I believe Mike shot -2, the differential was like 1.9 though. One thing that was brought up to them by a playing partner was it's one thing to carry a 0.0 handicap at a home course, but another thing entirely to do it at a larger group of courses. They said "that makes sense" "good idea" etc., but did not stick to that plan either.
