Don't have any written information or specs on them, but I do have a set
of them 2I-SW. What did you want to know about them, exactly?

In '83. the Titleist Accu-Flo plus was the first brand new set of clubs
I bought.  The Accu-Flow (minus the plus, pardon the pun) probably came
out in earlier '80s.  The woods especially sucked.

It was a cheap piece of crap.  But, if they feel good use them!

Just for the record:

I agree with this post-er about the woods that came with the set: they
were really, really bad. The sweet spot was infinitesimal and even if
you found it, it didn't feel good at all and the ball didn't fly very
far... and I guess that's about the worst thing you can possibly say
about a golf club. I never did use these woods very much: even in my
youth and poverty I had better woods than these.

The irons, as far as I'm concerned, were a whole different story. I
bought them used for $85 (including a semi-decent putter and the abysmal
woods described above) when I was first learning to play. I used them
for three years and they were plenty adequate for where my game was at
the time.

They're a little funny-looking, admittedly. They all have a big flange
on the sole, like a sandwedge, except in this case ALL the clubs look
like that from SW to 2 iron. Ironically, putting extra weight into the
sole is the latest trend in clubmaking so maybe these irons were a
little ahead of their time.

This Summer I decided to get serious about improving my game. I found a
WONDERFUL golf teacher and amongst all the other things he said we
needed to work on, he mentioned equipment (this was, notably, at the
bottom of his list). He hit my irons, about seven or eight shots on
maybe four different clubs, and said that they were basically well-made,
decent solid irons, but.... but, the shafts were too short for me, the
lie angle was all wrong, the grips were way too small (plus, old and
slippery), and they were a shade too stiff for me... plus, he said,
technology has come a long way since my old clubs were made and i was
missing out on some of the advantages everyone else was enjoying.

Looking into it, I decided to just go ahead and get a brand-new set of
Titleists. Re-working my old clubs was going to be pretty expensive, and
besides, I could afford the new ones and decided to treat myself.

I do like my new irons a whole lot better than my old ones, but I would
attribute about 90% of that to the custom-fitting issues. I got dynamic
gold S-200 shafts, which are stiffer than regular but not as stiff as my
old clubs, and I got them a little longer than standard and a different
lie angle, with larger-than-normal grips. Suddenly, all the things my
teacher was telling to do with my grip and set-up started looking and
feeling right, and that led to a lot of other good changes.

I do not notice a massive ton of extra distance with my new clubs. I'm
hitting about one to 1.5 clubs longer, but that's only when I swing with
the changes I've been working on. When my old habits creep back into my
swing sometimes, my new clubs hit just about like my old ones did.

Bottom line: you could do a whole lot worse than these clubs, as far as
the irons are concerned (we won't even discuss the woods). And if you
happened to have found a set that fits you in terms of length and
stiffness and lie angle and so on, you would have to spend some fairly
serious money to do better. They're probably a whole lot better than
some off-brand, economy, or knock-off clubs you might buy new.

Hope this answers your questions...
