Good Morning,

I am preparing to send off a project set Iíve wanted to do for a long time for refinishing.  Project is a set of Macgregor 1025 Mís that are in good shape overall, no face browning.  I want the original factory chrome and color scheme and a 1-2 degree loft adjustment made.  I have acquired black KBS Tour 120ís, gold aluminum ferrules, and brown leather Best Grips to round out the build.

Considering the following options:

1.  Iron Factory - leaning this way based on feedback and their stated specialties
2.  Tiger Nick - love my custom wedges from him, but one was 3 degrees off when digitally lofted (disclaimer had been played for a few months so could have bent), early ferrule separation, and standard shiny chrome is not his specialty
3.  BOS Golf

If anyone has any recommendations please chime in.  I know all the usual considerations, loss of head weight, bounce considerations on lie adjustments, etc.  Just really love these irons and have always wanted to build a set with my own aesthetic to them.  I want to ensure I pick the option that can return the heads to as close to factory new as possible.

The 7-W were acquired separately from the 5 & 6 which is why to see slight differences and stamping.  Iron Factory stayed ability to fill stamping as well but thatís not a deal breaker.  Just want these beauties looking authentic and new.

Thx

Why ?

Seems you plan to play these irons after the refinishing ?
Those looks great, I would not touch it.

Pictures look good, but they do need some touching up.  Just always wanted a pristine set of these as Iíve aged...nostalgia.
