Antique Hickory Golf Club, Niblick.
A fine and heavily weighted usable hickory shafted niblick. This is a great club in good playable condition with an approximate 50° loft. The club face is with line face markings, the rear of the club head with a flange and stamped ‘Special, warranted hand forged, with a ‘Key’ cleek mark’. The ‘Key’ mark belonged to Frank Johnson Ltd., London, and was in use from 1900 until Johnson’s death in about 1911.
If you are wishing to play some hickory golf the best balls to play with are low compression balls that will give at impact, such as ladies balls or soft feel balls.
