A progressive design in several ways. The concave crown took some weight out of the heavy persimmon and, as shown in the 1980's with a similar design graphite head, had improved flow dynamics to improve clubhead speed. The leather wrap grips are shaped almost 'squarelike' to facilitate proper hand placement and the faces are 'deep' to help in making ball contact. Pro-Made Golf Co. out of Vancouver, Canada, was a spinoff of British Columbia Leather and Findings, and made wood shafted clubs as well. The wood heads are in very good condition including nearly perfect lined flat faces and beautiful crowns. Labels are engraved so they are refinishable. The stepped steel shafts have reasonable chrome sparkle but tarnishing on steps and some small bag burn marks several inches above the ferrules. The 15" squarelike leather wrap grips are excellent with caps and collars in place (the brass cap is chipped). Brassie - 16 degree loft, 43"; Spoon - 20 degree loft, 42 1/4"; Skelper - 22 degree loft, 42". Amazing early classic club technology that is still playable.
