Dynacraft Prophet MB Forged Irons


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Over the next few days and weeks I will be reviewing the Dynacraft Prophet MB Forged Irons from Hireko Golf.  I got them over the weekend and will be installing FST 115g X shafts and Lamkin REL 3Gen grips.  I have attached photos of the clubs and they look great so far.  I will be reviewing them on everything from the specs to how they fell and will do so for the other components involved.  I will also be sending them to the USGA for groove testing.  If you have any questions please feel free to ask them and stay tuned.

I see now. Those close up photos are good. Thanks. It's funny that you posted these irons. Just a few days ago I had visited Hireko's website and looked at those very irons. I'm not in the market but

Interesting. They say MB but they look more CB to me.

I have two questions.

Is the large A (or symbol) stamped on the back of the head intended to look jagged or is that a poor stamp?

Why submit them to USGA? Do you suspect they are non-conforming? I'm also wondering why you'd build them and then send to USGA. Why not just the heads?

PlaidJacket, the logos are all milled in. I believe the logo you are asking about is the Dynacraft "D". And I would submit them because I would like to try and qualify for some USGA events and Hireko does not submit them for testing so they are not on the conforming list. They are designed to conform but without them being on the list I can't say for sure. I will try and take some better photos.

Looking forward to reading this. I've had the Prophet Tour Forged. Saw these, and they're on my list of things I need to try soon.

No they do not. You have to pay shipping both ways.

 

I'll have the weights of all the heads, shafts & grips according to spec tomorrow. If there are any other angles you want to see of the heads let me know and I'll try and make it happen.

The SMT driver I am playing is an early 2000 model.  I believe its from around 2003-2004.  They were big in long drive back then, and they are very nice heads.  I got mine off of a component website and they still have them.  It is a very low launch low spin head.

Ok  guys, I weighed all of the heads, shafts & grips last night.  The results are below.  The number on the left is the spec, the number on the right is what I got.

 

   Specs    Actual

4.  249g      250g

5.  256g      257g

6.  263g      265g

7.  270g      272g

8.  277g      279g

9.  284g      285g

P.  291g      293g

 

 

Shafts (FST 115g)  All shafts were between 114g and 116g

 

Grips (Lamkin REL 3 Gen Orange) All grips were 53g.

 

Everything was well with in spec.  I found it funny all my readings were a little high so I tested my scale with a 5 g weight and then tested everything again.  Got the same numbers.  Were they exact, no, was there any one piece that was way off, no.  Over all they fall with in tolerance.  This weekend will be the loft lie testing.  Sorry for the long delay, but work gets in the way.  If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

Max,  Attached are the photos of the face, top line and sole.  Hope they help.  We have about 6 inches of snow still here, but warming up over the weekend so hopefully next week I will be able to hit them.

Now one of the things I noticed with the shafts was a definite seam or "spine" on the inside of the irons.  I shined a flash light down the shaft and I could see the seam as far as the light would allow.  I have attached a photo, and maybe this is the byproduct of a $6 shaft or is this common with steel shafts?  Also I have used these shafts in other irons and they have played great, just never took the time to look down the butt end.

Thanks for the additional pics.  Those are some seriously nice looking irons.  Love the sole and top line.  Can't wait to hear how they feel and what kind of forgiveness they offer.

 

Please let us know what your old irons were and how they compare once the snow melts.

Those old  Black Dynacraft forged blades were great heads. I built a couple of sets of them intending to keep them but sold them for a profit of course. Those FSTs are great shafts I have been hitting the 90 version of them close to a year now they are highly under rated in the "mainstream" of the golf world. I just got my new Hireko catalog a few weeks ago and saw those heads that you got and if I had not gotten new clubs last year I would have ordered them. Smart Idea on getting them USGA tested if you plan to use them in "sanctioned" events. Some of these smaller component companies cannot afford to pay the USGA to submit clubs for testing. Eric at Infiniti Golf explained that to me last year what all they have to go through as a manufacturer on that

Driver --- Honma G1-X Stock R Flex----  3W Callaway Steelhead UST Pro Force Gold 65 stiff--- 2 iron 1980 Macgregor VIP Nike R flex-------- Irons 3 thru PW 1980 Macgregor VIP Hogan Apex shafts--- SW Cleveland 588 Sensicore S-400-- Putter Rusty Santa Fe Bulls Eye Fluted shaft-- Bag Old School Hoofer I had in the stash--- Goes along with my raggety persona
