I have fully restored clubs on my man room wall on racks. Shiny loveliness. MP14 1iron to SW fully rechromed and restored. MP32 2 to PW in mint condition. MP37 2 to PW in VGC. Pro MS1 persimmon 1,3,5 fully restored. Mizuno Bettinardi C01 putter, MPT105 putter. MP 600, 300S, T-Zoid Titanium drivers. But using JPX900 Hot Metal irons now 4 5 6 7 8 9 W G S L, with a ST180 driver, JPX 825 3W & 5W. I tried my blades and older F50 woods and MP600 driver the other day and it is just such hard work. I have to admit defeat sadly. But Chromoly irons have a great feel.

So much emphasis on selling clubs by the big companies these days. They wish to make money. In fairness Mizuno has tried to stay faithful to the ethos and resist the trend but they are a big business just like the rest. The 53's were a wonderful forged iron but I suggest give the newer Muzzy irons a go and get properly fitted. I love my MP32's my 14's, my Zoid Pro 2's and my MP37's. But I got a set of JPX900 Hot Metal and never looked back. Gained a club in distance and so forgiving with still good feel and workability. Have my other sets on racks on the wall of my man cave all shiny to look at them watching the footie 😄😄👍👍

Take care dude 😀😀

Post some pictures PLEASE!!!!!!!
Hi there, I have tried to put a couple of pics on here in the past but wont work for some reason. I am not that tech savvy, might be more than the data size allowed. I will try to compress them and give it another go.
Cheers dude thank you for the reply 👍👍

Hasn't worked, just get a line through the title of the photo after it has loaded. Send me your email if you like and I can forward a couple of pics of the racked up blades Walker.

Sounds like your pic(s) are too large? - There is a size limit & I usually reduce the size of pics here to 800 on the longest side (?)

Thanks Paul, as I said I am hopeless with tech. 800 pixel, I will give that a go, many thanks 😀😀
I have A levels in Mathematics and Physics but I am approaching 55 years of age and this is just a dark art to me.

My 30 year old half brother has a first class engineering degree and works for a Formula 3 racing team, but even he can't work out how to use the bloody i-drive on his BMW!!! 😁😁😁

Why do you have to be a 14 year old to work this bloody stuff out!!! ???

Sorry for the rant guys, I just get stressed with tech.

Steve "Jeremy Clarkson" Smith. 😁😁😁

Mr Walker Cup - If you wanna send your e-mail I will try to figure that out and send a couple.

Best regards guys, nil desperandum

Smitty 😀😀👍👍

Ok Smitty,

First of don't use the ATTACH FILES option to load a picture file..!

If you look along the top line above the box after you type your message you will see the little icon it's the seventh one along counting from the left that looks like a picture of a mountain with the sun in the top left corner, If you hover your mouse arrow over that icon it will say (Insert image (ctrl+P) if you then click on that icon it will open up a bigger box that says DROP IMAGE (or click here) click that box and open the file on your PC that has the picture you want to load then double click the picture and it should load automatically in to your post and Hey Presto job done..! :)

Let me know if that works for you..?

Cheers

John.
