First off I'd like to say thanks to all who comprise of this great community. I'm just getting back into the swing of golf after a 13 year hiatus. I've always been a Titleist fan, so much of my recent research has landed me here... The quest in question was for a "new" set of irons. Being a father and sole provider for my family, on a not so large income, the term "new" is only relative to the clubs being mine. I picked up a set of 690.MB's on Ebay for less than $150, in great condition. I also found a cheap incomplete set of 681s, but were in far worse condition than anticipated, and I had to return them. I did like the feel of them over the 690s however... So I was ultimately in search of some 681s. After hitting the 690s well, and losing a couple Ebay auctions for some over priced, well-worn 681s I gave up, and accepted the 690s.
I ALMOST!!! gave up I should say. I then came across a set of "Brand New 681s" from a pro shop in Great Britain. The pro shop owner said they had been forgotten about and left in the back of the shop from when a Titleist rep was there some years ago. I paid about 5x more than what I wanted to, but I hope they'll be worth it. At this time, these beauties are in transit from overseas, and I couldn't be anymore anxious to lay hands on them.
Let me know what you all think. If I made a wise choice to snag these, or should I maybe have gone with something like the 716 MB's.
Here are a few pics for everyone.
