So, as many of you saw over in the “What Have You Bought Lately” thread, I went to a thrift store and found an older set of blades. I was originally going to just get a single iron to play with from t

I took the wife out to the course and played my first round with the Wilson's. I only played nine holes due to having other places to go afterward, plus I was expecting a complete and total disaster o

I might have done a thing.... These are not super old clubs, coming out in 2002/2003, but they are sharp! I got a better look at them today and they're the Hogan Shafts in a 3 (regular) flex. Hav

Nice looking wingbacks with a very 70's looking logo.  Cool inserts in the woods as well.

Those are a late 70s early 80s store line models--- But remember even forged store line clubs were pretty decent

Those would be a good entry on the persimmon/blades challenge.  Be sure that you factor in shipping.  You can sometimes get nailed on shipping.

Yeah, if they go for under $50 all in, it's still a pretty good deal.  Those inserts are so cool, I had a hard time letting these go.  I hope someone here picked them up.

While Thanksgiving dinner is going on in the background, I thought I'd experiment with a little paint fill on the irons. I was a little nervous about it and probably took thirty minutes to do the one wedge, but I think it looks nice. Most of the old paint just peeled off after a soak in water and soap with just a toothpick. I used Testors enamel paint applied with a toothpick and cleaned the excess off with mineral spirits. 20201126_161345-01.jpeg.d82c06b3b19fc5c14e3181a48ac1a82b.jpeg

Tonight after supper, I took the 6-9 irons out of my bag and stripped the paint off them. Man, that Cirtri-Strip works wonders! Most of the paint rubbed off after 90 minutes of the stripper and a soak in some soap and water. I had to do a very minor amount of scraping to a couple of clubs that I might not have gotten the stripper on well. 20201225_234613-01.jpeg.36cfd2c0564a182b0bada6fd99feff82.jpeg20201225_234649-01.jpeg.ec94f529d9ab35696d13208cbaffbd93.jpeg

I'll paint fill these tomorrow, along with stripping the other four.

I just finished off the first four irons, getting them painted and cleaned. I let them set with the paint on for an hour before cleaning it off with mineral spirits on a paper towel. 20201226_140812-01.jpeg.688c475b90af739ae3ee960883e449ef.jpeg20201226_140947-01.jpeg.993b6e67ed089642f70efed0cd3346e2.jpeg Now I've just got four more to go and they'll be looking like a relatively new set.

The paint came out mint! Watch out Wilson might be calling to interview

Thank you! I had a little bit I couldn't get out of some of the scratches in the sole, but it's hardly noticeable. I'm pretty happy with the results...ok, I'm ecstatic!

Looking good!

Now what if you took it up a notch? Maybe take a green Scotchbrite pad and work it in one direction just on the raised muscleback section. It would give it a satin finish on that section to contrast with the chrome on the rest of the club.

Thank you! It's been a really fun project and I'd recommend doing it to anyone. 

The do look great;   really want to do some things with the set of clubs I purchased.  Needs regripping and cleanup,  but just too much going on to do anything with them and when there isn't I am too lazy.  Missed the fall classic club challenge, but hope to get out with them sometime soon.

Ooh.....I might have to try that, that would look good! I'll have to get the wife to order some pads and give it a try. I think the contrast would give the muscleback a nice look! Thank you for suggesting that!
