    Irons are safe, best all round iron I've ever used, I do swap the AW & SW out for Engage 50 and 54 degree options from time to time though. Depending on the course I also swap the 3 and 4 irons out for the corresponding Nike Covert Hybrids. The driver and 5 wood are almost ever present, but when I get an OCD attack I put the Covert driver and 5 wood in. The only real moving club in the bag ATM is the putter, I used an Odyssey 2 Ball DFX for almost 15 years but recently started looking for a replacement as it is very worn now and I am looking to go with a Odyssey #9 type (Nike Method 003 preferrably, but they're hard to find, especially in the UK).


    Well, today.....
    Driver: Taylormade 2016 M2 9.5° Diamana Ahina Ion 60S SAFE
    Fairway: Callaway X2Hot Pro 5 Deep 18.5° Aldila ATX Tour Green 65S SAFE

    Nike VR TW 7-PW KBS C-Taper 125 S+
    Wedges: Nike Engage 50 & 58° KBS C-Taper 125 S+
    Putter: Nike Method Mod 60

    If you can't enjoy the game with borrowed clubs, you need to find another game.

    Only clubs 100% safe right now are my G410+ driver and my Nike VR Pro II hybrid.

    I love my TM Milled Grind wedges, but I’m tempted to try the new Glide 3.0.
    I just put a Vault 2.0 Dale Anser in the bag, but haven’t played a round with it. Who knows how it will work out. Felt great in practice.
    I want i210s, so irons might be on chopping block.

    Trying to get to the all safe phase of my life. But currently the Callaway Epic Flash, the AP1 718 6-GW and 53 degree, and the 58 degree SM6 Sand wedge are set for a long time. Getting the itch to do some switching it up on my Ping G15 3 and/or 5 to a 4 wood and 3-4-5 hybrids are Baffler XLs are getting old but **** they are reliable. So not sure yet, And as far as putters, got a collection of 10 or so and they can be swapped out at anytime and they know it. Talk to them all the time. The only one I might add is a Spider.

    Livin' proof that Lefties are not naturally talented.

    I have had the same pair of wedges forever (TM RAC Raw tour grooves copper). I got them off the infamous BSG back in the day, don't see any reason to change them, other than the grooves are probably illegal.

    Everything else is subject to change.

    Really everything but my irons and I suppose my bag are safe. My G Crossover is beyond safe, comes into play on tee shots on short/tight par 4's and I am over 65% FIR with it. The second that used 1st gen TM p790's experience a price drop my Rbladez are most likely goners.

    What day of the week is it? That's how I feel with my clubs. However, the firmly cemented spots in my bag are the Glide Stealths, the Rogue 5w, and the two putters. The Rogue 3w has always been a bit hit and miss, it's either annihilated dead straight like 250 or the opposite of straight. I might shaft it up with a Thump 75 and see if that works and if not look for something else. My New Level irons I have a love-hate relationship with right now. I love them because when I hit them in the middle they are point and shoot with the faintest fade and feel better than any iron I have ever hit (yes including Mizuno and Titleist CBs and MBs). However, they are kinda punishing on mishits off the toe (my main squeeze) where they knuckle with little carry and a violent loop left about 2/3rds into the flight. So we will see. It's getting kinda-sorta near the latter half of the season in Canada anyway so there's no point in changing right now especially with new Titleist, Taylormade, Mizuno, Callaway, and Ping irons due out by February at the latest.

    Cally XR 3 wood, F6 4-5 wood, Ping G25 23 deg hybrid are safe. Completely trust them, and they have totally changed my game and confidence level at the top end of the bag.

    My Scotty CT and Byron 614 putters are not going anywhere either - more for sentimental and aesthetic pleasure, though I putt well with them too.

    The only two clubs in my bag that are truly safe are my G410 LST, my 915h 2 hybrid, my Hi- Toe 58 Raw wedge and my Piretti Matera. Everything else will likely be replaced before the end of the year. I’m super intrigued by the promise of this year’s Mizuno MMC’s being slimmer and I’m always looking for new wedges for next year..

    Is that not 4 clubs?

    I've got an old, trusty 3w (OG RBZ) and 3h (Rescue Dual from like 2006) that aren't going anywhere. Irons are probably safe for another season or two, but driver and wedges are due for succession.

    Only my 915H 2 hybrid is safe, they rest are on notice!!! Actually it would take a lot to kick the 2016 M2 out of my bag and the vokey wedges would only be replaced by newer vokey versions. The irons, putter, and 3 wood are suspect at this point, but the Rogue 3 wood is almost to safe status.

    Dead, flat-out honest?
    Every single one of them is safe, and yet none of them at all.
    I know, I know, but let me 'splain it to you Lucy.

    I can walk out my door right now and go peg it with 100% confidence that every club in my bag is currently the single best club, to which I have access, to do the job at hand. But, I can also say with 100% certainty that if you walk up to me and show me a club that has data that shows that it simply outperforms the current stick in that spot in my bag, well, I'd be a fool not to STRONGLY consider changing.

    The only exceptions here, IMHO, would be in the case of a putter (Snedecker) that just has too many good memories (not just any memories!!! GOOD memories) and has a ton of confidence built into it, or a driver shaft (D.J.) that, while not 100% perfect, is so close that it doesn't really matter and, again, you have a massive amount of confidence in it.

    Everything else is always open, and yet always confident. Such is the yin/yang nature of golf and life. As a rule, you will play your best when you are confident and satisfied with what you have, and you will improve the most when you are hungry and dissatisfied. Each golfer, and person in life, is responsible for managing that balance.

    And then after all of that, you can do what I was doing last night. Specifically trolling around eBay trying to figure out a way to put together a minimalist set with raw wedges, irons, & putter, using as much of what's in my garage currently, but also finding iron heads that are the right amount of offset, but what lofts, I don't know, and what shafts will I use, who knows, and for cheap, of course! Yada, yada, yada.

    Back on the merry-go-round I go, I'm a WRX'er after all!!!!!!

    Everything is fairly safe outside of the MP-T5 55 and 60 degree wedges. They are getting worn, but I have T7s waiting in the wings. The irons and putter are 100% safe for the foreseeable future. Cannot say enough good things about the 716 CBs.
