So you own more than one iron set...

    I tend to hang on to sets for some reason. Currently my old set of Eye 2s and just sod another of the same.
    Wilson Reflexes
    Tirkeist 716 Ap1s are my current gamers.
    Hogan Apex Edge Pros which I just pulled the shafts in. Just picked up a set of Nike VR Pro Combos which the shafts will get pulled and put in the Hogans.

    Do you have one coat, do you have one pair of shoes, do you have one car?

    Some folks say yes, some folks say no. I have multiple of everything above to address different seasons. climates, etc

    Same with my irons, I have 3 sets that although are all "me", are also catered to my different "seasons"

    Set 1-Srixon Z585/Z785 Combo. For when it's winter, you just went through the holidays, the "flaws" are showing,..even through your shirt eek. In this case throwing on the large coat will hide some flaws.

    Set 2-Bstone J15CB-The fall/spring set. Always a great time of year, not too hot, not too cold.. Some great days, some not so great days, for the most part you may not know what you expect. But over all you can never really complain, worse case scenario throw on the wind breaker and keep it moving.

    Set 3-Srixon Z745/945 Combo-The summer set. When you are feeling at your peak, firing on all cylinders, and need something precise to combat the heat. Even with a few of those random "cold" summer days , you can still get away with shorts and show off those rippled calves, needed to hit straight bombs.

    Mine is a backup/travel set.

    I have told my story before but I had a set of clubs stolen the night before a tournament.

    I’m comfortable enough financially that I won’t let that burn me again.

    I have a total of 15 clubs in my "real set" that I use every week. Duplicate at the 4 slot with both a 4-hybrid and 4-iron. But I usually carry 12 or 13 clubs total since I don't really need the 3-wood or 5-iron at my home course.

    The only other irons I have are some Ping Eye2 BeCu classics. I've got 3-LW although I hate the Eye2 LW and never use it. I do pull them out for 9 holes a few times a year and I also take them when we go to the beach for a few days, there's a very short and fairly easy course there that's fun to play just teeing off with a 3-iron. But mostly I just own those because they're cool relics of a (recently) past age!

    I own a vintage set and a modern set.
    Ive got a set of persimmon woods, Hogan Apex irons, Wilson Staff Model blade sand wedge and an old hickory shafted blade putter in a vintage Hogan bag.
    Its fun to get out the vintage set from time to time because the way you play a course is completely different and its just fun to play clubs that are over 50 years old.

    MP-53s are currently in the bag. I also have a set of MP-57s with identical specs but need to regrip them with Tour Velvet Plus4s.

    My third set is NIP MP-53s, likely one of the last new lefty sets remaining. No intention of ever selling any of the three.

    If the rumors about the MP-20s are true I'll get a combo set of those. Zero interest in buying irons otherwise.

    ... Having played Amp Forged, Fly Z+ and now Forged Tours I will hang onto the Forged Tours because they just have a special place in my heart. My gamers were P790's but playing hard fast greens in Phoenix, I found the lower spin was a disadvantage as opposed to the advantage lower spin offers in typically soft Midwest conditions. But I really loved the 790's so I picked up a set of P760's that gave me the best of Forged Tours and 790's. I will sell the 790's though.

    ... Then I have a set of 588TT's that would bring very little money but they are in mint condition and I can see me playing them again in the future. And finally a set of Lynx MC LXi forged CB's that are just awesome irons, although a slightly larger head size than I like, but again would bring next to nothing if sold so I will be hanging onto those too.

    Four Sets, wish it was back down to three :( Too much ho in me lately as I wanted to try some new tech having played 1-pc. forged MBs since 2008.
    TM P790 with KBS CTL 110S
    TM M5 with Modus 3 105S
    Honma TW 727 M with Modus 3 125R
    Callaway Razr MB with PX 5.0F
    The latter two sound/feel best. I may have to reshaft the P790 as KBS shafts are living up to their rep as an elbow killer....never had golfer's or tennis elbow in the rear arm b4 these! Could get Recoils 110 F4 again for those - worked well in Mizunos past.

    Had 5 at one point, down to 2, J15 CB and Z745s. BUT, I am about ready to let go of the 745s. They are great but the J15s have been the GOAT for me. I have been sticking with them and scoring better, too. Having multiple sets has made it tough to not switch back and forth but I want to get better and sticking with one set has helped me improve my scoring drastically...

    I’ve been an up and down (maybe binge and purge is a better description) “ho” over the years, but now trying (hopefully for the the last time) to purge again.

    Four sets. In the bag are JPX 900 Forged. On the BST right now are my Cobra Pro Forged Mb/CB combo (really hate to sell these, still the best looking irons I’ve owned) and my Ping Eye2 BC. Once they’re gone and the season is close to done I’ll probably sell the Mizunos also. Since it’s likely my playing will be much less I’ll just keep my old set of 07 X Forged. Probably ditch the modern drivers too. I might keep a couple of putters

    Currently got 3 sets.

    The gamers - my VR Pros. My thoughts on these are well known so I will save you too much detail, but it would take a lot for these to get kicked out. Like "a set of P7 TWs for £200" a lot.

    The backup set - my old OG Nike Blades. Probably superfluous with the VR Pros, they spend most of the time in my man cave, looking pretty. Very tempted to get them refurbished and put on display somewhere. Had too many memorable rounds featuring memorable shots to let them go.

    The cavities - got a set of Yonex Rekin Super 10 Tour Forged in my locker for when I don't feel like hitting a blade. They've been used once in 10 years....

    The Dee Three: Titleist 917 D3 9.5 degree - Aldila Rogue Max 65X
    The Stenson: Titleist 917 F3 15 degree - Aldila Rogue Max 75X
    The Walking Stick: Titleist 818 H2 19 degree - Aldila Rogue Max 85X
    The Blades: Nike VR Pro 4i - PW - DG S400 TI Shaft
    The Rusties: Nike Engage 50, 54 Square Sole, 58 Toe Sweep
    The Putter: Nike "The Oven" Method 003
    Balls: Nike RZN Tour Black/Platinum, Bridgestone Tour B XS, Titleist AVX

    1/ have Apex Pro 16 in practice bag, dont see that changing ever as i think the world of those sticks.
    2/ also have my old #1's - Apex CF16 4-AW that i had the stock TT XP95 R300s pulled & AMT Black S300 put in (using as a trade in on Apex Pro 19 very soon).
    3/ a back up set of Apex CF16 5-AW that still have the XP95s in them, dont see me moving them on ever either, the CF16 Apex is going to be a future classic in a few years is my sound logic for this.
    4/ plus a combo set of XR Steelhead & standard XRs for guests, for when i want to know how it feels to swing a Caterpillar D3 bulldozer.

    In the bag is a full set of tiger shark great whites. Backups are to burner pluses. That's it. I am bidding on a set of tm rac ht's though so I hope that works out. I just don't like irons with plastic on em and I'm not good enough to play blades.

    I have a really clean set of Nike VR Pro Combo's in my garage as a backup set. I have played really well with them this year the couple of times I brought them out. I should probably game them more often if not full time.

    My primary set goes out on "planned" rounds (weekends, vacations, etc) but I came into another set recently (6-PW), at a pretty smoking deal, that I decided to keep in a Sunday bag and tote between both cars for impromptu "after work 9's" or when I'd rather carry and don't want a full/heavy bag.
    Both sets of irons are comparable in loft/lie/swingweights + shafts (JPX919 Forged/Combo set vs HMPros) so there is next to no adjustment needed when going from one bag to the other.

    God it is embarrassing.....I hoed a bunch, then got down to 2-3 sets, now I am at 5 and here is the how and why.

    Mp14s, had since college, can't get what they are worth to me, have no desire to lose them even though I don't use them. Made them raw and with graphite for fun.

    Miura small blades. These see 70% of the action. They are my trusty old show that I have the most best rounds with in last 5 years and most confidence in.

    Onoff shingo cbs. In effort to find a CB set, I got these for a song, they look weird, but feel good and are forgiving as all getout. They are not my CB answer but they are intriguing with recoil proto 110s.

    Onoff MB Miura forged. I stole them, then proceeded to strip and copper plate them, then put in attas 10s shafts. I put too much into them but they are beautiful and functional. Like a bigger small blade. This is my roadster set.

    And I just bought Miura 1957 CB heads...doh. I was at a Edwin Watts's that had them so I hit them...mistake. I keep chasing the DCI 962s I had, these really had that vibe to me in terms of very CB but not very not CB and a squarish toe! These hopefully are my CB answer, so when I had a shot at heads for $400 on ebay, and having the roddio i10 shafts in my garage I am too scared to put on my small blades, I just bought them. Shafting up over next couple of weeks.

    I really don't like having a lot of sets, I like 1 me and one CB set, and I rotate them out like having two starting pitchers. For me it is mental. If I haven't played in a while I grab the cbs, if I am playing good with either hot hand stays until not hot 2 rounds in a row sorta thing. I don't like having more than 2 sets to think about grabbing, yet here I am, on WRX with 5 sets.....reality is that hopefully the Miuras and the novelty blade sets for fun. I think you can switch iron sets with ok results in long term scoring, but you MUST have 2 sets that feel like home to you, easier said than found.

    Ok, so I'm gonna need pics of both OnOff sets.......pretty please.

    What do you do with them? Swap them regularly?

    I swap mine quite often. I was changing my bag every two rounds for the past couple of years, but I've slowed down this year. I'm going about 5-6 rounds before changing my irons. My favorites are the TE EX-1, so it's harder to take them out of the bag for another set. I've been playing them for the last 8 rounds. Before that, I had the Rapture J-spec in the bag for about 2 rounds, TFT2003 for 5 rounds, and XL2000 for 3 rounds. I have yet to play X-20's or the GC Mids this year and the GC Mids are my favorite feeling iron, by far, in my rotation.
