After going through some sets I have, I couldn't help but be in awe of the beauty of The Haig line of iron heads. Ironfinder is a great resource for finding missing clubs etc.
I spent some time gathering the images and compiled them into an easy to view scroll of all their releases. I have a few of the sets including the 1961 set which is probably my favorite.
I also really like the 1966 blades in particular. I have not hit or gamed all of them though.

The Haig irons were the premier Wilson line of clubs. They were more pricey than the Dynapower line and were often used on tour etc. Some might remember that Ben Crenshaw was
a Haig purist and won The Masters using them.

Often overlooked, but they shouldn't be.

Thanks for this really cool overview. I have a set from 1961 (red checkmark) which I will have refurbished. These clubs rarely ever come up on ebay and appear rather rare. I bought them for 5 bucks from someone who didnt know what he was selling....I cant wait to eventually play them and “brag” with them on the course but have to keep working on my swing until such time. On Mod 4 today and my swing is coming along nicely...

You did good on those....
The 61 check marks are my favorite Haig blades for sure.
They play and feel great. The stock S shafts in them are wonderful as well.
