### Split sole help needed.

Posted:

**Fri Sep 01, 2017 3:39 pm**Hi all,

I have a set of VIP Custom 71 split soles which is missing the 8 iron. Now I don't expect to ever find a matching 8 iron for this set. But I do need to find something close.

The main difference with this set is they have long hosels ( approx 80mm from the heel, much like Mac models from the late 50's & early 60's)

Other split sole models I've encountered have a shorter hosel and a very different insertion depth.

It would be a huge help if any of you with split sole macs could measure your hosel length so that I can then figure out which model I need to start searching for.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks J.
