So a few years ago i seen some pics of the new Vega VDC-01 1st proto irons, they looked gorgeous, raw black oxide finish, little to no offset, thin top line, shorter blade length, when they came out i think they were about £2000, well i'll wait till i find some on ebay.

After just missing out on a few sets over the years i finally got my hands on some, they arrived last Thursday, and.... i've never been so disappointing in my life, top line isnt that thin, offset is quite noticeable, blade length not the shortest, feel is ok, but not as soft as i was hoping, gutted! so after a day i put them on Ebay and gone back to my trusty TI Taylormade RSi TP's, wife wasnt particularly happy either lol

    Honma TW737V, Vizard IB105 X-Stiff. They look OK, just don't have the feel I was expecting. My current gamers are Epon AF302, SPB X-Stiff, so it was an uphill battle to begin with, but the Honma's aren't even close. So much so, I've only hit the 4 and 7 irons, didn't need to hit anything else. However, my TW737 445 Driver is money!

    Honma 737v. Really love the brand and thought they’d be an easy transition. Never got used to the feel, perhaps it was my horrid swing....

    I got an Adams Tight Lies (original) 5wood when they first came out. I absolutely hated it. Usually, I take full blame for all my mishits, but this time, it was the club. It’s the only time I’ve ever returned a club.

    Ping G410 irons for me. Loved the idea of a smaller game improvement iron, but the feel and sound of them on mis hits is not good.

    Toulon Columbus putter, definitely not the clubs fault though. Wanted to be like the cool guys on tour and use an anser style with a rubber band grip. After putting 40+ times a couple rounds, I tried a super stroke switch. After another 20 heavy sighs, I’m going with spider x. I honestly can’t believe how much easier it makes putting for me

    Adams MB2s, bought a set of heads and for one reason or another never assembled them, then fell out of love and sold them, only to fall back in love and buy them already assembled. Hit them and knew they weren’t for me, love the way they look still.

    M5 Tour. I got fitted for it... and couldn’t hit it worth a lick.
