Hey Lag, aren't those rocket shafts aluminum though? Or did they make steel ones also?

Thanx, JN

I think I seen a post somewhere and I'm wondering what the Red and Silver labelled shafts are in the MacGregor REG. M-85 irons. There is a Diamond around the R on the label.? Any help would be appreciated.

No, The Green Band Rockets were never aluminum... aluminum didn't come out until much later.

How stiff are the True Temper red band (regular flex) shafts with the diamond around them?

I'm trying to buy another set of colokrom irons and only have experience with the green rocket shafts.

I have a set of Wilson Staffs with TT red band S-Flex shafts. They feel like they are firm and a little heavier than TT DG shafts. I would suspect that the R-flex shafts are pretty much like TT R300 shafts.

Hi all,
I get along famously with the Tourney Action 1's in my FC4000 M1's, I get quite a flat boring flight from these.
Both my AT1's & PT'1's have Pro-pel 1's, which feel every bit as good but with a much higher parabolic flight, these irons also play noticably longer than my M1's but I'm not quite as accurate with them.
I also own an incomplete set of Slazenger/Gradidge Tour Model (late 50's Stainless head M85 design) with the Green band Rockets. These shafts feel amazing, but unfortunately this set is missing enough irons to be more than just an annoyance.
I've a some Apex 5's here too which I need to test out to see if they will handle the ABS build weights.

One little thing I have noticed with the Mac sets I own is that the '63 Tourney Action shaft and the '62 Propels share the same shaft pattern, though the Tourney Action is tipped more. The '58 "Copper band" Propels I own have a similar step pattern to the earlier version but with slightly longer steps.
All these macs are dowelled too.

Now what are our favourite wood shafts??
