FOUND - Three Crazy Clubs

Recommended Posts

(INFO & PICS SUBMITTED BY READER: NEIL)

 

Here are pics of three crazy clubs. The samurai is part of an incomplete set I got at the Salvation Army. I got a complete set for around $100 in eBay. A few months later a second set was on eBay that sold for much more (I lost track when it hit $300).

 

The Clear wood actually swings nice. There are NO markings on it, so I have no idea who makes it. I don't like the flex, but I don't want to change the shaft, assuming I could anyway.

 

The Tiger Shark wedge is 52 56 60 wedge. There is are red, white, and blue lines that are on the grip. You place your thumb on the the color that corresponds to the degree you want and the wedge opens to the proper position.

 

I got all my wacky clubs from trolling the second had sporting goods shops and the Salvation Army.

Saw some Samurai heads on ebay -- odd looking club. Ever hit one? The driver - now that looks like a lab experiment gone awry...

I posted the Lynx with vertical grooves before and this reminded me I had one with dots too. What's that about? Try keeping those clean! Kinda funny to see people's "great ideas". I also have a Browning 440 and a 500 set. Goofy looking. I really need to get rid of a bunch of old sets.

These are awesome. I really need to keep my eyes open and pop into more thrift stores.

Those are pretty cool, I'd get them just to have.

Yea no kidding. If I came across that clear plastic driver I'd have to buy it!

I vaguely remember when those clear acrylic style drivers came out, as they were billed as having a harder head than other drivers, so that they would supposedly hit the ball further.

I attended the Western Open years ago at Cog Hill in Illinois, and they had some vendors/company reps set up near the driving range after you entered, and one of the vendors had those clear drivers for one to try, though I didn't bother at the time.

Like the punchdot face wedge by Tiger Shark, I too have a punchdot face wedge, and believe it or not, I still use it, though only for sand shots. Probably illegal, but my friends don't care for casual play. Mine is 60*, has a very rounded leading edge, and it has a lot of bounce to it, such that it is very easy to get out of sand but lousy off tight lies. The head weighs around 330 grams, whereas most sandwedge heads weigh around 300 grams. It has a very long hosel, and the name on it is Johnny Revolta (an old time pro player). I had purchased the head through Dynacraft Component company, likely around 1990?, which is now called Hireko.
