Nice bags Catchy, especially the classic bag of wood and steel. I've come to enjoy reading your exploits with golf implements.
I've been contemplating assembling a classic bag of MacGregors. To stand alongside the Hogans. Have grown rather infatuated with Muirfields. If memory serves, you have both Muirfields and Muirfield 20th's? If you had to pick one, and only one, which would you choose? Or are they similar enough that it doesn't make much difference. A decision made based on condition and price between the two. Depending on what I find, would probably perform a reshaft to my preferred weight and length.
Have a M/T M43 2 wood and M/T T.A. 693 5 wood blocks to cover that end of the bag. Thinking 5 - PW of whatever Muirfields. Plethora of wedges to pick from. And the Muirfield putter to place into service. Just a fun bag of MacGregors to play on occasion. You know, something different. TIA.
You now what I think of the V-Steels. Big fan. They've kicked to the curb all other fairway metals and hybrids in the modern bag. The 9 is very easy to hit, versatile, and fills the distance requirement that I'm after perfectly. But that's just me, with my less than perfect "old guy" swing.
Edit add: Now I read that you've come into a set of TM-92's. You've got a problem there mate. Ha!! Look forward to the pics.
Thank you, and thank you! I am really looking forward to playing more persimmon golf next year, and I can't wait to get out to a course and hit the 2w. It's just so much more satisfying to hit a good shot with the old persimmons than modern metals.
As for the Muirfields versus Muirfield 20ths, I would choose the 20ths. In fact, I had one of my best iron-striking rounds in a long time with them in the bag this year, so I feel confident with them. I think they also feel better than the Muirfields. I know they were made differently, with the Muirfield muscle being milled out of a flat back blade, and the 20ths forged with the muscle in it already. I wonder if that explains their superior feel.
Anyway, with their compact head and beautiful feel, I call the 20ths my cheap Baby Blades (don't have the BB, and doubt I ever will). The TM-92s are similarly compact, so with their arrival I would say a contender for the Baby Blade title!
And you're right, I do have a problem: I've run out of storage space
