This listing is for a set of 9 LEFT HANDED antique vintage hickory shaft irons. All were made by Spalding from their Kro-Flite series. Included with their play specs are are a 1 Iron 39" 22 Loft C 9 swingweight, 2 Iron 38 1/2" 24 and C 9, 3 Iron 37 1/2" 29 C 7, 4 Iron 37" 33 C 3, 5 Iron 36 1/2" 36 C 5, 6 Iron 36" 40 B 5, 7 iron 36 1/2" 43 C 9, a 19 Iron (niblick) 36" 50 C 5 and a RF Putter 34 1/2.
The heads are clean and not all rusted. They had bad chrome back then and these heads do have the expected salt and pepper chrome pitting. All have the expected play nicks and dings. Please look at the multiple zoom pictures for a better idea of condition. Shafts are all old and most likely original hickories.
I see no cracks in any of them. Two do have a bit of a bend. Spalding put their best shafts in their Kro-Flite irons as they were their top of the line product.
All but 2 of the shafts are tight at the hosels. I can't be sure but I believe most of these shafts have already been re-set for play. All hickory shafted clubs should be reset prior to play.
Grips are a mixture of old and new and vary in condition from poor to very good. Some do have tape at the bottom. Lefty sets are very hard to find. If you are considering playing with these clubs, while I see no real issues with the hickory shafts (other than noted above), I suggest that whipping be added just above the hosels to help prevent breakage. These old hickory shafts often have hidden defects and are liable to break at any time.
I do not guarantee hickory shafts against breakage when put into play. Never hit an old hickory shafted club off a driving range mat. Never hit an old hickory shafted wood with a hard range ball.
