  1. With a google, I found this which only the old timers will remember: — "Our friend Gene Sarazen also invented the flat side reminder grip seen on thousands of Wilson clubs made from the 1930s through the 1960s. Mr. Sarazen personally told me that he wanted to get a better grip with his left hand (top hand) so he took his pen knife and sliced a flat portion off the side so he could get the proper firm grip. Only after being on the market for many years did the USGA finally outlaw this type of grip. All beginner golfers certainly miss this aid."
  2. No, I've never seen any grips being sold like those were. On the top half of the grip, there was a flat area on one edge of the grip to aid in positioning your left hand. Not a ribbed grip like todays.

    Club build spec

    Something like D4 is normal with SW/GW as they have a heavier head weight than a pitching wedge. You have a more normal length for the LW/SW/GW instead of +0.5 like the irons have. The head weights are about normal, so the build seems to be about as expected with those lengths. Most players cannot tell the difference with a swing weight difference of 0.5 or so. Should not be a problem. Some builders will add lead powder with a small cork to make them all the same.

    Club build spec

    your lengths are mostly +0.5, so that increases SW by 3 to 3.5 per iron, so you are getting a heavy iron D5. what is c/b ? center of shaft to butt? I'm used to seeing tip/butt.

    Mizuno 2017 MP Craft Driver!

    The 2014 model hosel adjustment looks like its made of plastic. Does it melt if shaft removed with heat gun? Can you adjust the 2014 ,or does Mizuno have to do it?

    ONOFF driver Aka 2016

    Tataki 60 was just ok with me. The Tataki 40 is working great. The green paint model is great looking also. Lighter models are usually softer flex, but this one seems a tad bit stiffer than the 60.
