Charles Tuck (Nuneaton G.C.)  46 degree Ladies LEFT HAND Niblick c.1925
Product ID: I007W

Details 

A good left handed niblick for the lady player. The swing weight is C0 and the length is 36.25” (92cm).

However according to records the famous Henry Cotton carried out a test with regard to back spin using a smooth face iron, a line faced iron and a dot punched face and according to the results he said the difference between the patterned faced clubs and the smooth face club was negligible.

F.H. Ayres 32 degree smooth faced Lofting or General Iron c.1890
Product ID: I011L

Details 

A fabulous smooth face lofter or possibly a general iron. This magnificent iron has been restored back to play condition retaining the original thick hide grip over under listing.
