Look at these clubs on EBAY

Just saw this set on eBay - old Silver Scots that the seller claims are one of Ted Kroll's players when he was money leader on the PGA tour. Pyratone shafts and rubber cord grips (that will need replacing). Little rich for my blood but I think these could be bought, regripped, and played right away.

I have hit those shafts before and would not recommend them. In my view it is best to stick to 50s to 80s irons. Persimmons going back to the 40s are fine, but need new shafts.

The Pyratones are great shafts. Very stiff, thicker steel for great feel and feedback, and not excessively heavy. If you take the head off it feels like a feather.
All shafts do really. It's all about head weight.

As far as these heads, they are very light. They are very long also. You would be best to look for the smaller compact heads that came as the next generations of the Tommy Armour line over at MacGregor. The 985, 925 and 985. The best ones are the ones with Silver Scot stamped just under Tommy Armour right across the back of the club. Those heads weight about an ounce more and are a half inch more compact from heel to toe.

Hogan won a lot of events with the Pyratone shafts.

The first release of the 985 is considered one of the greatest set of iron heads ever invented. Those heads would hit well today for anyone with a quality golf swing.

Lag,

Did you keep the stock TT Tourney shafts in your 985s, or did you reshaft them? If you reshafted them, what is the weight/stiffness comparison between a modern TT DG and the Tourney shafts from these?
