    Ping G hybrids, Glide wedges and Darby putter stay, for sure. May get the itch for irons, but I'm still happy for now.

    Driver and 3W are safe. Hybrids are likely safe. Irons......might try the T200......but very satisfied with current bag. Been the same all year, that’s saying something for me!

    Since I started this thread in August, I made a change on a club I deemed safe. I made a change to my putter after I started missing everything. I went from never missing anything inside 6 feet, to missing from 6 inches. I lost all confidence. And yes, I know it's me not the putter, but when confidence is gone...its gone!

    So... My latest "Safe" clubs are my TS2 Fairway, H65 Hybrid, and T300 Irons.

    Driver: Mizuno JPX-900
    3 Wood: Titleist TS2
    3 Hybrid: Srixon H65

    So season is pretty much over, so I don't plan on buying any other clubs. However, I'd say at the start of next season, I might plan on replacing everything except driver and 3w.

    M1 5w/3h ---> F9 5-6w
    P770 ----> Blue Prints
    Glide 2.0 ----> Glide 3.0
    Betti MC series ---> ER10 or DF 2.1
    ProV1x ---> Tour BXS

    The GBB Epic SZ is such a beast of a club I can't see it leaving my bag until it breaks. The Tour issue 16* 3w I have is also an excellent club, and is very reliable off the tee and I don't see myself replacing that either. The 18-19* slot is up for grabs because I just can't find a club that works well both off the tee AND the turf for me 230-ish yard shots. P770's have been good this year but I really want to try out the hydropearl finish in all my irons, including the wedges. Putter is working decently well for me but it's got zero tech and I'm sure just having some EVNROLL face groove tech could save me a stroke per round. Ball change is due to wanting more spin on all my shots to help stabilize my often times low-spin draw balls, especially with driver and longer clubs. More green check would be nice, too.

    D - Epic SZ | HZRDUS Smoke Black
    4w - '16 Tour Issue M1 | Diamana B Series
    Irons - MP-20 SEL 4-PW | Modus 120
    GW - T20 50/7 | Modus 120
    SW - T20 54/8 | Modus 120
    LW - T20 58/12 | Modus Wedge 125
    P - Bettinardi 360-M
    Ball - ProV1x

    G400 Max is 100% safe. When I find a keeper (Taylor Made R5, G15, etc) I usually keep it for 3+ years and don't demo drivers. The G400 driver is the best I've owned, not even close. Same for the fairway wood.

    565 irons are 95% safe. This was the first season with them. I dropped my handicap the lowest it's ever been. Everything I wanted and then some.

    Hybrids are 95% safe. May look at G400s.

    Wedges and putter may be replaced next year. Not looking, but not married to them.

    My 714 AP2's are untouchable (4-PW). I have been fit a couple of times hitting things side by side and no fitter has ever even ventured to sell me something different.

    My Epic Flash 3w and 5w are also untouchable. 3w off the tee is a bomber and 5w launches obscenely high and goes forever.

    Putter has been in the bag for 5 years (TM Kia Ma blade) but I guess if I found/tried something I might but I am happy with my putting and looking down at it.

    TM hi-toe 50, 54, and 60 have been working great for me but wedges need to be replaced every few years.

    I just sold my putter for a new one. Not that I needed one, I just wanted to change to try something new. These are the putters:

    The only clubs at risk for me right now are my 917 F2 3 wood and my putter/putters. I'm eyeing a used TS2 3 wood with the same set up on the bay. Don't need it, but basically paying for the same club that I have, with an extra 5 or 6 yards.
    My putter/putters are at a major risk as my short range putting has gone from rock solid to hot garbage. Obviously it's me, but sometimes you need to look at something different. Suggestions for a super easy to use putter for putts inside 5 feet? :) (Do they make a putter with G400 Max-like MOI LOL)

    Everything else is safe. My TS3 driver is in no danger. My hybrids, well they're old and I have backup heads. I can't find anything better than these. Love my irons (Srixon Z565. Played J40 DPC for a long time and for me these are very similar in shape and performance) and I just replaced my wedges with the new Clevelands and they are just outstanding.

    I will admit that for me the one wild card is always the driver as every now and then I've made some bad decisions looking for more distance and traded a perfectly good driver lol. But I've managed to resist all year as I bought the TS3 right after they came out which was at least a year ago and it's still in the bag.

    I'm guessing I'm on the wrong website as every single club in my bag is safe. Next to be replaced will probably be my wedges when they wear out, but as they are still spinning properly and I can;t find anything else with the same head heavy feel as the Engage, I don't see me replacing them any time soon.

    I am the same way changed almost everything 2 months ago then shot my all time lowest score and beat my brother( which has never happened) I might swap putters to the back up when it’s miss behaving but that’s it

    Driver, fairway wood, Vokey wedges, and T22 Newport are safe, as are my backup AP2’s.

    Mizuno irons may or may not be at risk, as next couple of rounds will determine status as we move into irregular fall and winter play.

    Mizuno JPX 900 hot metals with C-taper lite shafts. Got fitted for these a couple of years ago and dropped my handicap from (probably) 12-13 to 6.

    If you mishit these things, it's no one's fault but yours and I have no desire to hit anything more challenging.
