Question for the more experienced golfers out there.

I have a set of old Lynx Master Model irons that my
dad left behind when he passed away in July. The have
a sticker on them that says "Lynx Custom registered 489M"
on the hostel it says 12.4 Stainless.

I play with TM OS2 2005 game improvement irons now.

What do you know about these irons?  Great old classics,
or just old clubs?

Should I regrip and give them a try?

By the lack of response I guess they are just old irons.

Post some pics, that might help.

If the old grips are decent enough to hit, take them to the range and see how they feel to you. If not, get 1 club regripped and do the same. If you like it, regrip them all.

Never heard of the clubs, sorry.

I checked on ebay and if these are the blade versions, there are selling for about $80-$100 used.  Not too bad a value for an older club.  I agree, just regrip one or two (5 iron and 8 iron).  See how they feel.  If you like them, you may want to throw in some new shafts too (as the current ones are probably outdated).
I think it would be pretty cool, a nice tribute to your father, if you were able to play a few rounds with these.  Lynx, although not a name on the tour anymore, was (and still is), a solid product.  Freddy Couples, Ernie Els, and others used to play the irons back when endor$ement$ weren't such a driving factor in equipment.

One of the first investment cast golf clubs. A bit of history right there, although eventually overshadowed (I think in the 1980s) by Ping.

I read an article in a lesser-known golf rag about them back in the early 1970s, giving a fair amount of detail about their manufacture. Neat stuff.

I still have a set of shaft over Lynx from about the same period.  At the time, they were state of the art and I liked them very much.

the Master model are close to being classic for us oldies...

excellent clubs and the wedges specially were used by many of our local pros...

IMHO they are still at par with modern irons with the correct shaft...and Yes---they were overshadowed by Ping after a awhile..

Fred Couples and Ernie Els were Lynx staffers for awhile..i would game them..

Back in the '80's they were easier to hit than blades.

I played a set of Lynx clubs that had Liberty Bells on the back, so they dated to 1976.  I played just fine with them; some of the most consistent golf I have ever played.

I had that set. The master model 1972 version.  They were fantastic.  Super easy to hit and great performers.
