One of the most sought after antique golf clubs, the Spalding
Kro-Flite double waterfall F-6 backspin iron has a wavy pattern of large
corrugated grooves on its face. This rare club was offered only in
Spalding's October 5, 1919 catalog. According to the patent issued to
William F. Reach, the wavy lines would allow the golfer to impart a
great deal of backspin to both a direct stroke and cut shots.
The Back of this iron is marked with Spalding's Crow & Kro-flite
Trademark and "A.G.Spalding & Bros." The sole is stamped "F-6, Ded Stop Mashie
Niblic, Reg. US Pat Off" The shaft and grip are original. This is a beautiful club.
This club is the center club in the group image that accompanies this lot. For more about Spalding single and double waterfall irons, see TCA2 Vol 1, p. 274-275.
