    In no particular order:<br />
    <br />
    Taylor Made R7 425 TP - perhaps the most perfect pear shaped driver ever.<br />
    Titleist 905R - great shape, great performance, great sound<br />
    Mizuno MP-32 - revolutionary, most forgiving blade ever, and maintained the feel of a Mizuno<br />
    Taylor Made R9 TP “B” irons - maybe the best ever by TM, despite not being forged<br />
    Titleist AP2 series of irons - almost a decade with minimal design tweaks, and still one of the top three players iron every year.<br />

    The word gets thrown around a lot in the BST, seemingly reserved for clubs that were unexpectedly good or popular, and have remained popular beyond the standard cycle. Having a 50+ page thread on here seems to be a pre-requisite too!<br />
    <br />
    Just for fun, two questions
      <br />
    1. When someone says unicorn, what do you think it should mean?<br />
    2. What are your favourite unicorns?<br />
    <br />
    I'll start - UDI 1 iron, Adams BTY Fairway wood, R510 TP driver?<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    Since 2005, the only club I can think of that is still revered to this day is the 905R. Don't get me wrong, I love the R510TP (in fact I have one myself) but that was made in 2003 (I think), not 2005 (you said last 15 years, not last 17).<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    Though i'll admit I didn't check the numbers before posting, 2003 is 15 years ago by my maths? Regardless, 905r is a great suggestion!<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    <br />
    You're right...my bad....<br />
    <br />
    He is commenting from the FUTURE!!<br /><br />R510 TP, Cup Face in Irons, Driver COR/CT in Fws.

    Wasn't there a rare version of Taylormade 300 irons? Tour or TP version maybe?<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    Tom Lehman used them. Less offset, boxier toe. Miura made. Nice club.<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    I was thinking Miura forged TM 300 Forged, I once owned a set which had belonged to Gregory Havret. However they are 2002 clubs so just miss out on the OP's parameters.<br />
    <br />
    As for Unicorn status I personally think that a Unicorn is something that we know exists but could equally be a myth as either nobody has seen one or next to nobody has. To that end the V steel cannot be one as my friend has one in his garage which he bought for next to nothing. His was cheap and is unloved.<br />
    <br />
    My nomination for unicorn status are the JDM Taylormade R9 Forged irons.....stunning. I know they exist because I've seen photographs of them, just like I've seen photographs of unicorns and I once saw a set for sale on ebay, they were tatty and expensive. However I've never seen a set in the flesh, just like a unicorn.

    I remember a friend that had both the taylormade XR03 and XR05 drivers from release day. They went absolutely miles but I never saw them in anyone else's bag or in shops.<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    I had an XR05 for a season - it did go miles, just not always in the right direction <img src='http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /><br />
    <br />
    To be fair to it, I hit 2 of my most memorable drives with it - one 350 yards downhill at Conwy, and the other to 2 feet away from the pin on a 290 yard uphill Par 4. So it was long, but wildly inconsistent. I should have kept the R300 I had before, but was tempted by new shiny.<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    The multimaterial heads Taylormade forgot they had produced when the 16 M1/M2 came out!

    I was in the habit of checking ebay monthly for a long time and they rarely popped up. If they did come up for sale it was usually beaten to ****.<br />

    Adams is listed on here a bunch and I'd have to agree, they seem to have made as many prototype clubs as production models. I still game a BTY tour issue 3 wood and two of there Idea Pro hybrids.<br />
    <br />
    The 3446 "clamshell" has been one I've always wanted to try.<br />
    <br />
    And the Speedline Classic driver with the square protrusion on the sole is one I'd love to get a hold of. I had a 9015d that was a bomber, but they all seemed to sit open. As the legend goes this was a more squared up forgiving version of that club.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
