    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. <br />
    <br />
    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. <br />
    <br />
    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.

    Taylormade, had a run in with supposedly one of their reps and they have been on the do not play list since then.

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