Does anyone know where i can find the specifications (lofts) for old irons? I have a set of Top Flite tour irons that i got in 96 and am upgrading to the CG Golds and would like to compare lofts of the two... Thanks

I would go to

www.golfsmith.com/cm and post it in the clubmaker's forum. The Golfsmith Technical Dept. reads those posts regularly and they are excellent with these types of questions. Plus, if they don't know, there's a pretty decent chance someone else on there will. Actually, I just went there and did a search and found this :

Check ironfinder.com

I recall the lofts on the Top-Flite Tour 303 irons of 1996 as:

2  19

3  22

4  25

5  28

6  32

7  36

8  40

9  44

pw 48

This is 1* weaker than standard.

I had 1997 Top Flite Tour Mid-Size and I think they were a bit more lofted.  I'm pretty sure the PW was 47 or 48 vs 45 which more standard for a current PW.

My PW on my 1999 wilsons is 49 degrees... Just that them to a shop... They will tell you.. Just bring the wedge and the 3... You can figure the rest as they were 4 degree different..

The old tour clubs played these lofts.. Dont understand the loft game to pretend you hit farther...LOL..

Take the CI 11 wilsons. The GW is 48 so that will play like my PW now...

So will someone say WOW you hit a gGW that fair??? And I say now its really a PW....And if I get the 3 iron it would really be a 2 iron from back in the day...

After the GW in most sets the SW is so far away to fill the void... Best buying a Volkey or callaway forged to fill that... Should only be for sand and flops anyway...

Just my opinion though....

Take pics of these clubs... The old clubs from that era were actually pretty good and better then the huge cavitys they have today...

Here is my old wilsons that play very well in forgivness but play like a blade... I gave my callaways away and went back to these.. Looking at the ci 11's but cant get past the blackness...

    • I usually like to tee my ball 2" below waist high.
    • Nadir is technically correct but fairly arcane; I've never heard anyone refer to the lowest point of the golf swing as the nadir. I used the term "apex' because in racing it refers to the inside point of the racing line in a turn at which you're closest to the curb. The orientation of hands to clubhead at impact does make a difference. However, the naive solution to being told you're leading the club with the hands is to release your wrists earlier, and done even a little too early this results in "casting" the club which wastes most of the power of the downswing. So, you have to be real careful telling someone who's keeping his wrists too stiff to "release more".
    • Actually, I was just looking back through the old Bulls goalies and there are a bunch of familiar names. Early on you had Doug Dadswell and Sandy Galluppo. Both those guys played for the Cyclones and Sandy had a stint with Dayton before Birmingham. You were one of the many, many stops for old Kalamazoo goalie Mike Torchia, a Michelin man-looking guy that I saw play the Cyclones many times. Last but certainly not least was my old BG buddy Shawn Timm. He played a miserable 15 minutes in goal for the Bulls after his senior season with the Falcons. Gave up three goals and became an investment banker. Great memories.
    • It might not have been the security guards who suggested paying for the damages. He gave them ~ $50 cash. He wasn't 'shaken down', taken to an ATM, relieved of watch, electronics, etc. In the U.S. there is such a thing as a citizen's arrest. It's possible that in Rio some licensed private security guards may be deputized in some way with partial powers to detain for arrest. Every time Lochte's lawyer responds to a media inquiry with 'no comment' it's billable time. If they decide to answer the charges with local representation the money bleed will accelerate. I'm positive paying the donation in lieu of fine in the short term like his teammate did would have been less costly. It would have been even less costly ~ $50 if he had kept his trap shut in the media having already narrowly avoided an official 'on the books' detention / arrest / fine. http://www.people.com/article/ryan-locht-summoned-brazil
    • So an actual player. Yeah, its tough to turn any coach's head at that kind of weight. UAH must have been fairly early in their program (at least at the Div. I level) at that point to.  I was 12 or so before I even discovered hockey (again the Bombers) and didn't learn to skate until is was 15. Besides that I'm about as athletic as a wet sock, so never played anything other than drop-in type stuff. There was a train-wreck of a rec league I played in at Bowling Green. We were the scraps left over and it showed. If ever manage to curtail my over-fondness for beer and drop about 30 lbs, I might give drop-in another go.
