Dunlop Linear Force-first ever set
Tommy Arm 845's
Taylor Made Super Steel
Adams XTD Forged
Mizuno JPX 900 Forged (current gammers) I also have a set of PING G410's that I tested for another site. They find their way into my bag every now and then.
As you can see, I am not loyal to any brand. Currently I have my eye on Callaway Apex 19 Forged/pro or Mizuno MP20's.
Since I started golfing in 2000 in Chronological order
Half set of Fazer clubs (Ping Eye 2 Clones..traded them away for my next set)
Wilson Staff FG-17s (yeah I believed in idea that blades will make you a better player quicker..stupid me..still have them)
Wilson Staff 1971 Button Backs (ditto....hit them much better now..still have them)
1988 Tommy Armour 845s (Stupid me. sold them in the mid 2000s so I can get a set of..)
2002 Tommy Armour Oversize Plus (The only set I bought new from an online dealer when it was discontinued..still have them)
Maxfli Revolution Blacks (Played them for quite a few years (still have them) until I came across my next set at a price I couldn't resist)
1988 Tommy Armour 845s (It was like coming home again, not gonna let them go this time)
1997 Callaway Bertha Golds (Bought it for my girlfriend as a set but I still have it since her place doesn't have the space to keep it. )
Titleist 990s (Had a lot better feel than the 845s especially as my swing got better and my scores got lower then one day after browsing on Craigslist I came across this)
1999 Hogan Apex Blades (Paid $80 CDN for a 2-E set from a former staff player that he used for a few rounds until he bolted to Titleist...been stored in his basement since. They're now my gamers)
LOL... here we go... in order...
Wilson 1200LT's (I think that's what they were called, no idea what happened to them)
Black Knights (Lynx Black Cat knockoffs, gave to a friend)
Mizuno T-Zoids (first "real clubs", still in the garage)
Callaway Big Bertha's (played 1 round and sold them off, then went back to the T-Zoids)

The list is way too long over the past 34 years of playing and with searching for the panacea. I would bet I have owned at least 50 sets of irons, maybe more. I have owned iron sets from:
Ben Hogan Golf (Radials, 1988 Apex blades, 1992 Apex blade, Edge CB)
MacGregor (1983 Muirfield blades x2, 1987 Muirfield 20th blades x2, 1990 VIP remakes x 2, 1992 CB92)
Titleist (962, 962B, 990 CBs, 716 AP2s)
Ram (1980s Tour Grind, 1992 FX2)
Mizuno (MP14, MP29, MP30, MP32, MP59, JPX900 Tour)
Cleveland Classics (588 blades, 588 cb)
Maruman (Curtis Stange model)
Tommy Armour Golf (PGA)
Wilson (Fluid Feel blades, FG17)
Ping (Eye2, i3 Blades x 3, i3 O Blades)
Maxfli (Austrailian Blade)
Callaway (X14 Pro, X16 Pro, X Tour - first version)
Arnold Palmer (Peerless blades)
Taylormade (1987 Tour Preferred blades)
Spaulding (1999 Ben Hogan Apex blades x 3)
There's a handful of component company irons I tried (Dynacraft, Golfsmith, Golfworks, Austad's, and a couple more). I'd say 6-7 sets here. In total I am over 50 but less than 55.

Assorted kids sets and/or hand-me-downs until age 11-12 or so. "Real" sets after that
No immediate plans to change, but may think about it after this year or next. Lots of recent irons look great, but nothing wrong with the 900s.
1. Handed down set of MacGregor MCXs (1 year)
2. Ping ISI BeCu (4 years)
3. Golfsmith Tour Cavity Forged 2-6, Professional Grind 7-W (2 years)
4. Snake Eyes MC-01 (8 years)
5. Back to the Golfsmith combo set (11 years)
6. In the process of building Maltby DBMs
Ping Eye 2
I'll list mine sometime when I have a weekend with nothing else to do. Taking a guess I'm at over a 100 sets in the last 32 years.
Started playing in 1967 with my Dads cut down Cary Middlecoff irons. I got the even numbers, a sister got the odd numbers. Since then...
First Flight Golden Eagle
Wilson Patty Berg
WS FG 17 Tour Blades
Dunlop Maxfli Australian Blades (1-pow)

Bridgestone J35, J36, J40 CB
Titliest 690 MB, Original AP2, 716 CB
PXG 0311T, 0211
of these, The FG17’s, The Maxfli Austrialian Blades and the Ping S55’s had by far the longest run as my Gamers. More than a decade for the Wilsons and Maxiflis, the S55’s may get there yet. Most of the rest were a season or two at best. 28 sets in 53 years of playing. 25 years of that are 3 sets.
First set - Wilson X70 (spent most of their time in a closet or garage)
Second set after taking up the game again in 2007 - Tommy Armour Silver Scot boxed set (not very well made)
Since joining GolfWRX in 2009 (alphabetical order):

PXG 0211 (newest set)
Titleist AP1 710, AP1 712, AP2 714
How is it even possible to name them all if you are a true club ho? I have had 4 sets just this winter. TM P790, Ping i200, Ping i210 and Ping G700 and am on the hunt for PXG 0211’s.
Ain’t no way I could remember all that

I am going to consider irons I kept for a bit and and not the golfer equivalent of a one night stand
Lynx Black Cat Irons clones - First set of irons I bought to learn how to play with.
Tommy Armour 845 OS - The first real set when I realized playing that clones were not good
Mizuno MX-23 w/Rifle shafted - One of the absolute best set of irons I owned. This was before Rifle was bought by True Temper.
Ping ISI- Nice set of irons
PING i5 - Absolute fantastic set of PINGs. Even when I moved on, I kept these as a 'backup set' for while'
Cleveland TA5 - found a gunmetal set of these on eBay. Still love the dark metal look. a set of PING 710 may be in my future someday
Hogan Apex Edge - Absolute great set of forged cavity back irons. I hated that Hogan got bought and stripped to the core by Callaway.
Wishon 560MC - I had a Rifle set of these built. They are up there with among the most forgiving best feeling irons I've owned. Let myself feel like I needed to go back to OEM irons for no good reason. Could have played these a long time.
Ping G25 - Point and shoot irons. These are placed now my current full time backups
JPX EZ Forged (orange and black version) - flashback to the gunmetal. Love the color, good irons
Srixon 565 (currently playing) - Softer feeling that JPX EZ forged. As forgiving as many of the sets I've played in the past. Got them last year and played the best golf of my life with them.
