BoomerGolfAnon - WITB (Frankenstein Edition 1.0)

Here's my bag as of 30 minutes ago. With the exception of my putter and my chipper, everything else is either: a fairway wood, a vintage persimmon rescue club, or a hollow Hi-Bore iron. Because of this, I also have headcovers for EVERYTHING.

2W - TaylorMade SLDR Mini Driver @ 12*

3W - 2005 Cleveland Launcher Steel @ 15*

5W - 2005 Cleveland Launcher Steel @ 19*

7W - 2008/2009 Cleveland Launcher @ 22* (this is my favorite club)

9W - Adams RPM Redline Low Profile @ 25* (another great fairway wood; currently sporting a #7 headcover)

9W/10W - MG Golf Black Steel @ 28* (The black #9 headcover is correct for this club, but at this loft I consider it more of a 10 wood; if I like the Bang Storm #11 fairway wood @ 31* I just purchased, it will replace this club)

7 Rescue - Vintage persimmon Cobra Baffler @ 27* or 28* (I bought this club for $4.99 at Value Village and restored it; it has an original ladies flex steel shaft; if I like the new vintage Baffler #9 (@ 30* to 34*) I just bought, it will replace this club. I can't find any info on what the 'official' lofts are for these new clubs, so I'll have to figure it out myself once the 'new' one arrives later this week)

4 Iron - Cleveland Launcher HB @ 20* (this is my 'cheaters club' that takes the count to 15; but I need something that goes low to get out from under trees; everything else in my bag goes too high)

8, 9, P, D, S - Cleveland Launcher HB irons and wedges @ 34.5*, 39*, 44*, 49*, 54.5*, respectively. (For some reason, Cleveland calls their 'Gap' wedge a 'Dual' wedge, hence the "D" on the headcover)

Chipper - Ancient Confidence 7 iron cavity-back head with a chopped ladies flex Fujikura Vista Pro shaft; I built this club for my wife, but she never used it, so I auditioned it as my chipper, and it won. Awesome Frankenstein scoring club!

Putter - Odyssey Stroke Labs #9 @ 34 inches

(There's also a Tour Striker practice 7 iron in there)

So, that's what's in my bag! Other than the irons and the putter, every other club was purchased at Value Village for less than $13 or from eBay for less than $35. I also have a nice collection of vintage persimmon Gintys that spend time in my bag. I'll post some pictures of them another time. I'll also post additional pictures of the clubs themselves without the headcovers.

"Old School" and low-budget FTW!

Nice WITB, but I am curious about the bitcoin ads. Seems odd to me....

I noticed that, too. No idea what happened; needs investigation. I thought it was just me. I only uploaded the golf bag mage from my box. I thought it came from the site!

The naked 7 iron is my Tour Striker practice club. It's not legal for play (IIRC). Also, I used my only #7 neoprene cover for my Frankenstein chipper. Basically, it doesn't deserve a cover!

Fixed! That was strange...
