  1. Hello Tom! I’ve gotten my hands on a set of 550c and they’re about the best clubs I’ve ever hit! According to alot of people I’m not supposed to be able to play blades, but I’m doing really well. I love them! The thing is, I fear they’re getting a little old, and I’ve been looking to buy a new set of irons, but I’ve yet to come across a modern club, blade or otherwise that I like more. So I looked up the origin of your clubs (I didn’t know much about you or your clubs beforehand tbh) just to realize you’ve stopped making them. My question is; do you make a club today that is similar to the 550c’s? Honestly, I never want to hit any other irons, unless I have to. /Best regards, Johan

      Thanks very much for your message. It’s fun to hear that you discovered the 550C’s which were our very first forged carbon steel iron design that debuted in spring 2003 and stayed in the product line until 2008. The current cavity back forging that we offer is the 575MMC Cavity Back. It is forged from the same exact carbon steel as the 550C and all other manufacturing processes are the same from a metallurgical sense. The 575 is however a little smaller in overall head size compared to the 550C. Not a lot but to the discerning eye, it is detectable. The offset is the same for both models and so is the topline width. I will say if you hunt around on Ebay and also look for a set called the 555C, that one was made from the original forging dies of the 550C, but with little changes to the sole shape and radius. So that one would be virtually identical to the 550C, if in fact any of these sets exist for sale on Ebay.

      Thanks again and I do hope this helps,
      TOM

  2. Mr. Wishon, Just thought I should report. In order to sell more product, I felt I should be playing it. Well the driver, a 919 9* is twenty yards longer and more accurate than my Bridgestone 445. The fairway 3 and 5 929 also much better. 560 irons excellent. I am now going try the Micro wedges.
    I am also going to build a smooth 7 putter.I use the arm anchor style. I have developed a system where by I can build to the specs that account for the added loft and shaft off set needed for this style by using a aircraft aluminum hosel bore insert. I will playing in the PGA winter program. I am encouraged to play some Champions Tour events again. i played there for several years. My play has got people asking the product. One set built and sold. Some fairways and a driver so far in the dead of winter here. Can’t wait for spring.

  3. This is a fantastic iron for the better player wanting some forgiveness in his irons. Nice traditional look at address, great feel and performance. Best of all it can be matched with the 555M to provide a custom forged set where the golfer wants some forgiveness in the longer irons but the feel of a blade in the shorter irons.
