    Club identification

    Hi, this my first post here so I hope this the right board for this.
    I have this lovely macgregor iron set but I can't find information about them. When I google macgregor vip iron only one picture pops up that looks the same as these.

    So I thought maybe someone on this forum knows more about them. I'm especially interested in what period they were produced.

    Thanks in advance for the help :)

    Going off memory here, but 67 or 68 I believe had the crowns on the end of the scoring lines, but my memory says they looked different than these.
    They made a set in the 90s that was a remake of this classic version. Do you know what is behind the lead tape?

    There is nothing behind the lead tape just glorious forged blade iron

    I don't know a lot about iron history but I can imagine that the quality and or technology hasn't changed that much through the years on these kind of clubs. But if there has been they feel and look very well made up close

    There has actually been quite a bit that has changed, especially with more CG work. Hosel changes have allowed a more centered CG and even multi materials have come into play. Then add in general, manufacturing has gotten a ton better over the years.
    Can you tell me what is stamped on the hosel?

    Okay, going off memory here, but I believe the LB stands for Long Blade.
    I believe those are from the early 90s.
