Best feeling cast clubs I ever played.

Local pawn shop has a set of these with KBS tour stiff shafts. Asking mid $200s if I remember correctly and the set appears to be in great shape.

Alas, my game will not ever swing stiff steel again...
Livin' proof that Lefties are not naturally talented.

Adams (pre TM ) MB 2's and CMB's.

I agree with this. Adams forgings were extremely underrated. The MB2's, CB2's and 3's, and the CMB's were just great sticks. To top it off they all came stock with premium components at a non-premium price. Think about how many of the top OEM's are going to put C-Tapers and New Decades on a club without charging you through the nose for it.
I agree.  You can throw the A12 Pros in there too.

Those were an all time great, but hard to call under the radar
What did fly under the radar were the Beryllium Copper versions, the 845bc Golden Scots.

They were the last cast clubs that saw significant action in my bag, with Loomis Tour X shafts and the first generation Winn grips that didn't wear out.

Dimension Z irons, felt great and they were built like a tour players set. Gram matched heads, gram matched shafts, gram matched grips,frequency matched shafts, precisely swingweighted and built to any spec you could possible desire. I had a set of "forged feel" muscle backs the were cast 1020 carbon steel. Everyone used to tell he how nice forged irons felt and I honestly could not tell the difference between the Dimension Zs and forged titleist 690 mb back then.

Current model, not old, Acer XV Pro irons.  Heads are $9/each and super solid.  Tons of banter about the new Pine i e1 irons having a soft feel and these things do too because they are made from the same 431 stainless.  If people hit these things they would be amazed.

I know this is an old post but I just saw these and I'm in the market for a new set of irons.  How do the play/feel versus the other big brand golf clubs?  They look very sharp!

They feel excellent and play just as well.  Assemble them with your choice of shafts and go play.  They are an unbeatable value.  This threads has some information you may find useful..http://www.golfwrx.c...__hl__"acer xv"

I know it's an old thread, but another mention for the Yonex tour forged. Mickelson gamed them before moving over to the big boys endorsement $$. BEST graphite shafts ever put in a iron, butter soft, and long. I have them in my bag to this day and I would say maybe one out of five people I talk to on the course has ever heard of them. Now that's under the radar.
