  1. Yes, I've heard that the hard range balls may be bad for the older persimmons and maples. I've asked around and heard different views. I don't hit em that much, just a few times to get that nice low rising trajectory that todays clubs can't provide. I bring em with the old blades and hit the blades mostly. I haven't noticed the inserts getting nicked or dented, but I think you're right it's not worth messing up a nice piece of wood. I've also got a 'not so nice' set of Mac keyhole woods that I picked up cheap so maybe I will just hit those to get my fix. If they crack it wouldn't be a big loss.
  2. These aren't the Colokroms although I have recently bought a set of Tommy Armour 945 Colokroms. I believe they are late 50's clubs. Matched them up with some Oil Hardened Tommy woods and a Ironmaster IMG putter. Get some strange looks at the range hitting those persimmons,
  3. The M75s were made mid 1950s and again in the early 80s. Classic irons. There is a book out there by Jim Kaplan that lists the MacGregor catalogs and history from 1930s thru 1970s.
  4. Not sure, but I couldn't find a thread addressing vintage (40s,50s,60s,70s) Macgregor clubs. I've heard there is a book/catalog out there showing the clubs thru the years??? Hoping someone can help me out. I acquired a set of Macgregor M75 Tourney irons and MT Tourney woods that have LTWA stamped on the bottoms. Is there a source for the codes to determine what year and other info? Thanks
  5. I was thinking the same thing about the boot polish. Would like to get the faded bag back to the deeper color to match the rain hood.
  6. I agree. I've used Lexol on my sofa and chair and it seems to work great. This bag I have is old, dry, abused, and in some areas the once smooth leather is scraped up a bit. I'll have to get a picture. Probably was quite the bag back in the day. But it is all leather and would be cool, albeit heavy, to carry around now if I could get it restored. Actually wouldn't be carrying it, but more of a cart bag.
  7. I just picked up some Lexol cleaner and conditioner. It seems Lexol is the gold standard for leather so gonna give it a try. They did tell me that saddle soap would leave a residue on the leather. I appreciate the direction. Thanks!
  8. Thanks and thanks for the link. I've used Lexol before on my furniture. Don't know why I didn't think of using it on this bag. Do you think it will be better than saddle soap?
  9. I just picked up a vintage Burton cart bag. It's all cowhide leather. I'm saying that because of the cow head emblem stamped into the side of the bag. It's a light tan natural leather bag and looks like from the 60s or 70s. It does have some stains on the bottom that look like maybe old dried water stains. It has the rain cover. Because the rain cover has probably never seen the sun, it is a nicer darker tan leather. I'm hoping someone can give me some advice as to how to restore this beautiful bag. I'm hoping I can remove the stains and also darken up the bag leather to match the rain hood. I'm thinking saddle soap but don't want to touch it until I know what I'm doing. Removing the stains is my main concern at this point. Any suggestions?
  10. Does the Sand Wedge have the tungsten inserts as well? I have seen the sand wedge that looks similar with no inserts.
