Already on their way. The heads look a little rough so I'm wondering if we can put a little paint on polish to clean them up some.

If the shafts turn out ok we probably won't need to do much in terms of weight or lie.

Mike gave me a quick report back - these could be a diamond in the rough. I believe they are 1963 Hogan Personal 404 Speedslot persimmons with the Flash Reaction "N" shafts which I believe could be X-Stiff even for the day. They have leather grips which is one of the reasons I bought them. Mike will add a little weight and refinish the heads for me. Can't wait to get them into my bag.

The Hogan's are back from Mike Rees. They look just beautiful. I had him refinish the heads in cherry rather than the original Black finish. Take a look at the wonderful work. Thanks Mike.

Got some Spalding model 59s off eBay today with stiff green rocket shafts. Should pair with my irons really well.

Anybody know anything about them? Given The shafts, I assume they're from the 50s or early 60s.

Just picked up some M85W Super Eye-O-Matic woods with leather grips and Tourney "C" shafts.

Those M85's are great heads.

A perfect example of blending both beauty and function. The sole plates on the 3 and 4 woods were much heavier (brass) than the aluminum plates on the driver and 2 woods. The brass plates lowered the center of gravity to help get the ball up with purpose, while the driver and 2 wood had an intention of keeping the center of gravity a bit higher up to keep the flight lower and more penetrating.
