    crazy how much putters have changed, not much variety back… an 8802, an 8802 copy (Mickelson), two Ping Ansers and an Anser knockoff (Woods).

    Crazy to see how they were hitting drivers with 6.5 deg of loft on them.

      Got to agree, pictures of all the bags would have made this the best forum post ever!

    It is amazing how low the driver lofts were back in those days because of the wound ball spinning so high back in those days. Thanks to the Pro V1 and its competitors, lofts of 10.5 are pretty much the norm now.

    Well done.

    Next research assignment please: WITB for Nicklaus, Trevino, Watson, Weiskopf, and Miller in 1975.

Coolest thing for sale in the GolfWRX Classifieds (10/13/21): Adams MB2 Raw irons

Published

on

At GolfWRX, we love golf, plain and simple.

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment of the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball. It even allows us to share another thing we all love – buy and selling equipment.

Currently, in our GolfWRX buy/sell/trade (BST) forum, there is a listing for a set of Adams MB2 Raw irons

From the seller (@skaarsgard): “Adams MB2 RAW  irons 4-P + G w/ Steelfiber i95 Stiff (Plus bonus 56* and shaft), G wedge w/ C Taper, clubs +1/2″length, and lies / lofts measure standard.  $475. 

The GW has a C Taper shaft and I am throwing in a 56* Edilon Sand Wedge which has the Steelfiber shaft should you want to use it. This shaft has some cosmetic damage near the hosel but certainly does not impact performance. The 9 iron struck a rock in a tournament – tried to capture close ups in pictures.  I don’t think it impacts performance as I never noticed it.  Aside from that grooves are still sharp and in way above average shape. 

Ping Midsize feeling grips. Used one round last month but aside from that, unused since 2014-2015 timeframe. These are amazingly forgiving and wonderful clubs – all-time irons.”

To check out the full listing in our BST forum, head through the link: Adams MB2 Raw irons

This is the most impressive current listing from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules
