just think- that $35 could have bought you a ferrule and a grip on a new titanium monster!

Nice- I really liked the look of the grain working it's way from the face/inlay backwards to the rear. I always have been a grain watcher on persimmons!! Don't know why but that looks good to me- sort of like an alignment tool also. Never liked the grains that criss crossed at diagonal angles as much
I remember having some of those woods years ago when I was given stuff by Spalding. I liked them - that's why I pointed them out. I think you'll like them too Bent

Nice one Bentshaft - Let us know how they play!

Two - I know very little about grain patterns. I hear people say from time to time that there is a preferred grain pattern with the concentric U grain in the toe but its all a mystery to me. Anything you can share or is just a beauty in the eye of the beholder type thing?

Cheers, Arnie

Arnie,
I don't know much technically about if the grains help with the endurance or performance of the club.
I was just going by my personal preference like you suggested.
If you look at the 3 woods that bent just got.

The left one has a strong grain pattern. You can really see the pattern running through the club- even forming circles on the toe and running up the neck area
The middle one has a distinct grain running through the center and only very light grains towards the heel/neck and toe area
The right has only minimal grain.
I like the one on the left- It has the grain running strongly through the club which I would use to help me with alignment purposes. More importantly--It shows power to me- It screams out-- '''I am full of grain and am aged and am strong and will not be broken or destroyed"--- Doesn't that sound weird? But that's my line of thinking on them

Funny- because when I was younger and could remember how to cut back-re-stain-re-lacquer and re-shaft these pieces of art I used to try and finish all my woods in this same light color.
In fact many of them I wouldn't even stain (I am betting that's what happened with these ones)..I would just cut them back nice and smooth them up and put lacquer on them and let the natural color of the wood be the focus- and that really makes the grain visible by just using lacquer and not staining them.
The beauty of the old woods- you could call them art because as you can see no two entirely looked the same exact because of the wood they used or the color they used to stain or the different color inlays used or screws used-= beautiful stuff

Got myself a 3 and 4 wood today from one of the shops at Bundall. Conditions are not the best but I thought I might give them a try and perhaps spend a bit of time trying to restore them to the best of my ability. Spent AUD 25 for both so it's not like I splashed out anyway... ;)
