  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. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. Very Old Irons

    Does the Sand Wedge have the tungsten inserts as well? I have seen the sand wedge that looks similar with no inserts.
