Hello fellers, this is my first post and its exciting to share knowledge and talk golf. Ive been a long time viewer since highschool (2011-14). but now to the golf talks. i got a full bag of Macgregor MX custom irons (3-pw) and Woods (3-5). i want to reshaft the irons and maybe redo the finish, now thats where i need some direction, because i dont have a gauge to see the fitting of the shaft size and i dont know anything about re finishing irons (although i have seen alot of the custom stuff the top tier WRXers post lol ) so id gladly take the advice. Now onto the second set, i have some golden bear irons (missing the 8 iron and pw). Any help and knowledge of the history of the clubs etc will be awesome.

The Golden Bears were my first set back in the late 70's.  Pure garbage.

Definitely one for the Classic Forum people. Post plenty of pictures because they/we love 'em.
I think the MXs are likely to be 1970s. Any serial number or shaft label on them? The serial number should tell you if they're really a custom order.
They should clean up nice, anyway.
Driver: Ping G400 Tour 65S
4w: TaylorMade R9 stock Fujikura Motore X flex
7w  TaylorMade V-steel, Quadra Fire Express RB 6SX
Driving Iron: Tourstage Airmuscle with DGS200 (for occasional use only)
Irons (4i-PW): Mizuno MP18 PX6.0 @ + 1/2"  or something a bit older....MP-4s, Mac Muirfield 20ths, Mac Muirfields, Mizuno MS-11s, MS-1s, RAM Tour Grinds, Tourstage 2005 CBs, Honma PP737s, Mac R-58s, Dunlop Maxfli TM-92 Australian Blades, Wilson FG-J8s (FG-17s)...uh, I've missed a few
Wedges: Callaway MD2 50* S and 54* S-grind  or whatever else I fancy for the day
In the 60* slot: Usually a Titlesit Vokey 260 60*
Putter: Testing some old Mizuno 8802 clone

Best of luck rerfurbishing those irons.  I really hope you're doing this for sentimental reasons because you'll be lucky if you break even if you're trying to resell them for a profit (no offense).

Titleist DCI 990 Irons (3-PW) with stock Dynamic Gold shaft in S300
