Cold Forging I -V
« on: July 24, 2013, 06:51:22 AM »
Dear TPM funs and collectors.

I recently completed collection cold forging series (I to V)

Following is my observation
I:  8802 type
II: Gorge Lowe type
III: #1B type
IV: #12 type
V: solid #1 type

I like both IV and V.

Apperciate it if you have any additional information.  regards,

TroyK

These were made for the Japanesse market.
I think only 700 sets were made.
They are great putters and feel awesome .
I have a II. That is a cool set.

Nice collection there!
 
I've never had the opportunity to putt with one, but I've heard great things about them.
Read it, roll it, hole it.

thank you for your comment, JelUltra

Concerning #12.  my preference is as following order (milled cavilty models comparion among spalding series) from sound perspective when hit sweet spot

cold forging >Gold III>>>precision ground TPM 12 (2nd release) >>> TPM12 (3rd release)

some of members here may have different preference....

The #12 makes a really cool sound at impact.  Very similar to a Ping 1a.

To complete the information on this series, could you post some pictures of the grips if they are the originals.
