Which vintage iron shafts do you like?

I have yet to hit them, but I'm thinking Apex 4 would fit my swing nicely. I understand they are equivilant to a modern day DG S500.

I just swung my first Apex 4....I love it...

I have never seen or tried the s500, but the X200 works well also

The Pro Pel #1 shafts are the holy grail of vintage shafts.

I finally found a set of them on ebay dropped into a set of VFQ MacGregors. I just need to re grip them.. but I think they will be quickly into near top of my set rotation.

I like Apex 4, Mac Pro Pel 1, Mac Tourney 1 (a little later I think) and the old 50's Tourney C shaft with the red band.

Cheers, Arnie

Got a chance to buy the following, very cheap. MACGREGOR TOURNEY M2 CF 4000, the shaft is #2.
Any thoughts on these would be appreciated, I'm a Newby here. This would be my first real vintage set, except I still own the first set Ping made.

Thanks, Wojo

Wojo,

Get them - really good clubs, especially if you found them for cheap. You may decide you want to reshaft, but that's not a huge deal.

Best regards,

Is there a difference between Pro Pel #1 and Pro Pel Action #1? Anyone have a picture of the shaft band handy?

I used to used True Temper's NDIS and NDWS tour shafts. They seemed to have the same step pattern as the Hogan Apex. Very high flex point. NDIS stood for "New Dynamic iron shaft."

While someone brought this up, what is the difference between the TT Dynamic and the TT Dynamic Gold? Step-pattern? Flex-point? Weight?
