Found this ancient PRGR CT-522 three-iron. Buttery soft, very wide, almost DI type-sole with elegant bounce, sharp muscle-back forging.

I looked online everywhere for specs, can't find any. A small history found at the PRGR website claims it coulda been forged in Japan as early as 1984...

Looking for length, loft, lie and shaft specs, because the graphite shaft that came with it has no markings, feels like a regular flex that's stiffened over time, and works so so well. Also, clearly a shorter, Japanese length, as well...

Any additional information, or directions to find them, would be helpful...

It's getting extended and re-gripped, but when it's all done and I take receipt of it, I'll be sure to post more pics...

FYI, when I did my forum search on here for these irons, a listing came up anew from the last couple days/week over in the BST for a full set, 3-SW...

this is all I could get at the shop after I picked them up, and before I got back in the car.
sorry I was in a bit of a hurry...

I think I have a set of ct-450s in the garage. Very similar. I got mine off eBay. There are quite a few of these on eBay all the time, just different models, but similar.

I think getting advice from guys who are sitting at the computer in their underwear while taking a break from porn is a very solid way to choose clubs. - bluedot
