No need to be apologetic here just give us the straight truth even if it doesn't make sense.

    I play all Ping, had a great opportunity and I took it, so you can see in my signature what my bag looks like, that said, I am in Afghanistan and they have sent new goodies to the house, hopefully I can get to use the new stuff in May when I take my vacation...

    I won’t play anything like the M5 or M6 irons. Just way too clunky looking for me.



    I also won’t play super expensive clubs like PXG. No. 1 I don’t think there’s any great technological breakthrough they’ve discovered and no. 2 I’m afraid I might fall in love with them and have to buy a set.



    I’m a lot less particular about woods but again I won’t play any overpriced “ultra premium” clubs because there really is no adavatage of $1000 driver vs a 500 one.

    Ping irons don't suit my eye so I wouldn't play them. I do game a Ping driver though.

    Callaway and Taylormade. Both overpriced and taylormades terrible marketing. They also churn out new clubs way too often. Would only go with Ping Srixon Mizuno Titleist.




    I don’t think taylormade bring out new clubs more than anyone else now, 2 drivers once a year



    Look at mizuno with irons recently mp18 blades, sc, mmc, jpx 919 tour, forged and hot metal, now have a fourth between forged and hot metal, hot metal pro



    jpx 900 wasn’t released that long ago and that had 3 versions also....

    I try to avoid using the irons in my playing partners' bags, because I will get assessed penalty strokes.



    Other that, I'll give everything a try as long as it's free.

    If offered for free like in a sponsorship? I would play anything.



    If I’m spending my own money, anything older than 2012 is generally out the door. There are a few exceptions. As for the modern stuff GI like M5/M6 and ping g410 would be fine. it’d be tough for me to play SGI irons like GMax, Rogue X, Cleveland launchers or MGCB. Not to say I can’t if free clubs and money were offered.

    Pxg because of Bobby and Taylormade would have to really perform ... their driver and 3 wood does. That’s The only reason I have them. The whole attitude of the company turns me off.

    There were 2 irons on my list that I won’t play. Ping i500, it sounds too loud to me and TM p760 that I would love to play but not only over $1300, when I asked to order them with PX LZ’s, they told me it would be an up charge of $25 per club, so no thank you, I went with Mizuno 919

    Not sure I would use Ping's even if I was on staff. I've never liked the look of mostly anything but Titleist, which is the only irons I've played. Mizuno or Srixon are the only others I could ever see myself using for irons.
