Can anyone give me a ballpark cost estimate to bend a set of forged irons(2-PW) 2* flat? Do brand and age factor in? I have a mint set of 1972 Spalding Elite MV2 forged blades that I'd like bent and am curious of the cost.
Many thanks,

The GolfWorks charges $4.95 per club to adjust loft and lie, regardless of how many degrees you need, brand, or age. So figure roughly that when looking locally.

Same price ($5 per club) at any Golfsmith.

I'm FAR from an expert at metallurgy/bending/etc, but I would think the only added "cost" of bending older clubs might be an increased risk of breakage. Then again I could be 100% wrong about that, they may be no more likely to break than anything else.

    I currently play cobra S3 irons regular shaft. Which I really like. I would be very happy to test the new Cobra irons. I have played Cobra clubs for years. My favorite club.

    About 3 years ago I became tired of sucking at golf. While I haven't made great strides, I broke 90 and am close to breaking 80. This is the summer. I'm contemplating new clubs to go with my new swing.
