Sirchunks blade experiment and restoration


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I walked in to the clubhouse at my golf course today and almost, almost, bought a set of Ben Hogan Apex Edge irons. I know they're cavity back, but man, I want a set of Hogan's. The only reason I didn't was because I hadn't discussed it with SWMBO, even though I knew she'd be cool with it. She enables my golf addiction. $70 is just about too good of a deal to pass up. I don't need them, but I want them. So pretty....

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 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

I always loved those irons but never put a set in the bag.

They're really good looking and I'm probably going to run by there tomorrow and take a better look at them. I didn't see what shaft was in them but just looked at set makeup and price. You didn't get a set, but did you ever hit them? How were they if you did? I need to do some research on them and see what people thought about them.

Great looking and feeling clubs.   Probably the Hogan Apex shafts;  they were numbered -3 was regular; 4 was stiff.   Did a search and there was a post from a couple of years ago that those shafts were similar to the True Temper Dynalite.    Of course I hit them;  but they were new at the time and out of the price range I wanted to spend.    Never found a used set at my local used club store or I would have put a set in my bag.

I appreciate the input, and the information on shafts. I had just paid and was heading to the golf cart when I spotted these beauties and didn't give them a good looking over. I'll look up the article. Thank you!

First off, it's good to have you back on here after your computer messed up on you and I'm glad you're feeling better, too. I might just have to plan a trip out that way next year and meet up with you, I think listening to your wisdom would do this fella good. I appreciate the kind words, I've said it a bunch, but the people on this forum are what makes it special. 

It does make me sad about Possum Trot, I played it in the late 90's on vacation with the ex in-laws and it held a special place in my heart. I used to have a towel from there, but have no idea where it's at. 

Right now I'm planning on bringing the Wilson's back out to play this weekend. I always take an extended weekend on Labor Day and since I've been playing in the Hard Rock Challenge, I've been using my regular set. I get way too competitive and think a nice, relaxing round or two with them is in order. It's funny, but I don't pressure myself at all with these clubs. I think I don't expect to tear the world up with them and just enjoy the ride. I need more work with the woods before I'm comfortable enough to go full classic, but I know it'll be fun when I do. 

HIGHLY recommend it.  @BIG STU is one of the best dudes to take walk or a cart ride with.  Let me know if you happen to ride through the upper part of SC on your way down.  I'll meet up with you for lunch

I might have done a thing....20200908_175458-01.jpeg.c1dd41ed9107fe9ff86ae22f535cc5ba.jpeg
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. Haven't had the chance to hit them properly, but did hit a couple of small chips in the back yard and they feel nice. They are the Pro model. 20200908_175542-01.jpeg.3bcded382796733f483edf667866aa0f.jpeg
The 5-E clubs have Release by Feel Golf grips and they feel like they have a reverse taper to them, the grip feels bigger the closer you get to the shaft. The 3&4 have normal grips. 

Figured you’d get them! Nice job, have fun w them.

Looks like they are in good condition.  Can't wait to hear about your on course experience.

I can't wait to actually hit them, didn't pick them up until 5 today and had food in the car and needed to get home. I'll definitely post up my thoughts on them as soon as I can get to the range and the course.

Dude, you're making me nostalgic.  I played these after my Apex Redlines.  I love the Apex shaft.  I donated them to the First Tee - I hope the kid that got them (who's now an adult) treated them well.
