Available for dispatch 4 Jan. on my return from holiday.Ben Hogan 'Radial' 3 - Equaliser Wedge (50 degrees) Blade Irons (1983)SHAFTS: Radial Flex Vector (Senior / Lady's)SUPPLIED WITH: Brand new set of red head covers with neoprene views.GRIPS: OriginalCONDITION: ExceptionalThe set offered for sale here comprises 3,4,5,6,7,8,9, and E only. A total of eight irons. So what makes this model so special?They are not only blades, but also blades with a low centre of gravity head mass which facilitates extremely easy ball launch. Couple that with a broad flange sole and one has the easiest to hit set of blades ever manufactured. Add that formula to soft flex shafts and Ben Hogan Golf created a professional set of irons for the slow swinger - something rarely created in golf's history, namely the 'Radial.'Why should a slow swinger wish to opt for blades? Ignoring their beautiful understated profile with no frills or bells they make it easier to deliberately put side spin on a ball because there is no peripheral weighting doing its utmost to straighten out every shot.Historically the golf manufacturing regarded slow swingers as being inept golfers who required cavity backs in order to straighten out the ball on every bad ball strike. Imagined slow swingers consistently missed centre face by country mile. How many older players have nowadays been forced to play beginner's cavity backs simply because soft flex shafts are nowadays only fitted to cavity backs, never blades? Finally, 1983 blades were chromed in the old way - chroming potentially capable of lasting a lifetime rather than today's 2-3 years. The old form of chroming is now illegal worldwide due to health and safety concerns with such manufacturing processes. Modern chroming is no longer a sensible way to finish irons as it never lasts. These blades have had very little play and are in exceptional condition. I imported them from the U.S.A. at not inconsiderable expense because they are in such great condition. With vintage irons CONDITION IS EVERYTHING. Buy these irons and if you are a competent but slow swinging golfer and I guarantee that you will not be disappointed. The price is so low only because these clubs are for a very limited market, a market even smaller than the left hand golf market.
