    For me, it’s the R7 TP 3-wood. Could prob add the V-Steel to that, as they are pretty similar minus the weights.

    Wasn't there a rare version of Taylormade 300 irons? Tour or TP version maybe?<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    Tom Lehman used them. Less offset, boxier toe. Miura made. Nice club.<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    I was thinking Miura forged TM 300 Forged, I once owned a set which had belonged to Gregory Havret. However they are 2002 clubs so just miss out on the OP's parameters.<br />
    <br />
    As for Unicorn status I personally think that a Unicorn is something that we know exists but could equally be a myth as either nobody has seen one or next to nobody has. To that end the V steel cannot be one as my friend has one in his garage which he bought for next to nothing. His was cheap and is unloved.<br />
    <br />
    My nomination for unicorn status are the JDM Taylormade R9 Forged irons.....stunning. I know they exist because I've seen photographs of them, just like I've seen photographs of unicorns and I once saw a set for sale on ebay, they were tatty and expensive. However I've never seen a set in the flesh, just like a unicorn.<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    I just sold my JDM R9's on eBay a few months ago...a beautiful club, beautifully forged and finished. I even played them a few times but was very careful.

    Bridgestone TQ-04 precept (airmuscle) driving iron. One of the rarest there is. Performs better than any driving iron I've ever played.1FCA0B56-EAE6-4E86-AA4A-4FBDCC32E479-924-000000E57D6D25A9_zps1c55c10d.jpg

    Same, I'm in the process of reshafting mine with a Diamana B series. I don't know why I ever took it out of the bag, it's old beat up and ugly. It's awesome.

    Adams Idea Pro 'Tour Prototype' hybrid. I was the standard bearer at the Deutsche Bank Championship for Rory Sabbatini when he was with Adams, watched him launch this thing all day, then decided I needed one. Best hybrid I have ever owned, might have to break it out of storage now. This was the first of 3 Adams hybrids for me, it's a shame they were not so popular with the larger retail golf community.

    Some of my favorites that I’ve owned:<br />
    <br />
    TM r580 / 540 XD TP: still have two of these and to this day no driver feels better<br />
    <br />
    TM r7 SuperQuad 282: sadly lost this in a fire<br />
    <br />
    TM r7 HFS 3 wood: also lost this one in a fire<br />
    <br />
    TM V-Steel paintbreak: these use to be readily available but don’t see them too much anymore<br />
    <br />
    TM RAC Milled TP: maybe Miura forged; looks so good with the satin finish<br />
    <br />

    Quite possibly the only post I’ve ever read where Rory Sabbattini inspired someone to do something other than say bad things. This man is a gentleman for sure !

    <br />
    Nike Pro Combo Tour irons. I'm not a golf equipment historian but if I recall these were one of the first full combo type sets offered straight off the rack. I always envied this set in the mid 2000s and recall guys like Trevor Immelman, David Duval &amp; Jason Gore among other Nike staffers gaming them. I recently picked up a set off the bay and can't wait to restore them!<br />

    Actually Titleist had the forged 735 CM out before the Nike combos. I still own a set.

    I played a set of 735.cm for quite some time too, probably 6 years. Wasn't sure on the timing of the releases and who had the combo set first.

    Figure I would throw in some putters for all the Hoes. <br />
    <br />
    Studio Stainless Newport 2. IMO the best retail Scotty ever. Probably not quite a unicorn because they are pretty easy to snag used, albeit for $250+, but compared to other retail Scotty's these are tougher to find. Crazy how well these retain their value.<br />
    <br />
    Also, the Mizuno TP Mills putters are/were awesome. I still game my TPM 6 from time to time. Again, these are pretty easy to find used on the Bay, but harder find ones in good condition. Overall a great and overlooked putter.

    Some of y'all's definition of "Unicorn" is interesting to say the least. Not to try to single anyone out or pick on anyone, but really with Ping Eye 2, V Steel (almost anything TM/Cally that isn't "tour only" or "tour proto" for that matter), Scotty Cameron retail offerings, etc...?<br />
    <br />
    Some of these may qualify as "Cult Classics", but definitely not Unicorns, and I think we already have a thread or 2 for Cult Classics. Maybe it's just me, but my definition of Unicorn is<br />
    1. Magical Powers (as in you can hit this thing anywhere on the face with the most un-Godly swing and still get decent results, or if you hit it on the screws it feels/goes like nothing else), and<br />
    2. You can scour eBay for months/years and find only a handful available during that time, and they are still demanding a premium price even if they not are not in pristine condition.

    I did some work for Bridgestone and I just happen to be helping them build at the PGA when this thing came out. Tiger came in to the truck and ask for 4 of them and I had to tell him no because we didn't have that many heads. We made one for him but I don't think he put it in the bag. Great driving iron.

    Agree 100%. I'm using a TiSi Tec Driver with an upgraded shaft cut down to 43" right now as a "mini driver" - still $ off the tee and SO easy to hit off the deck. Standard adapters are available from Golfworks/Billy Bobs, but can't find any stock of flat/open - open/closed.

    My unicorns would have to be:<br />
    1. RBZ 3HL Wood. I sold it when the Stage 2 Fairway came out, HATED it, bought the SLDR fairway, HATED it. Bought a beat up RBZ 3HL Wood on Ebay, sent it to Continental, had it refinished black.....perfect happiness.<br />
    2. Cleveland CG14 60-degree wedge w/zip grooves

    I did receive a tongue lashing from him only once during the round, other than that he shook my hand and gave me a signed ball. Rory has matured quite a bit from his younger days of harassing Ben Crane and calling out the GOAT.

    For me it’s the Nike split cavity AND full cavity prototype irons. It’s just too bad their grooves are longer conforming, otherwise I’d still be owning a set.

    For what I’ve owned here are my favorites <br />
    DRIVERS<br />
    1.) Titleist 975L-FF 7.5.......and it’s not even close (amazing feel with the forged face and extremely long) would have never left the bag, had it not been for Head size and forgiveness. Still take it out a couple times a year <br />
    <br />
    2.) Cleveland Comp 7.5.....actually is what kicked the LFF out, thing just launched with low spin and went forever.<br />
    <br />
    3.) Taylormade 07 Burner TP version 2 8.5 with the small half dash on the toe..Driver just had fantastic feel and was a fairway finder<br />
    <br />
    4.) Titleist 907D4 7.5......Driver just set up great with really clean lines..it’s a shame this club never went retail<br />
    <br />
    Fairway Woods<br />
    1.) Vsteel paint breaks ( have had multiple 13’s and 15’s) even the 16.5, 18 and 21....Currently still game a 15 & 18 both with MT-85x (Diamana BB’s). Have tried multiple newer clubs and haven’t found anything as good.<br />
    <br />
    2.) 07 Burner HFS’s 14.5 & 17.5.....just easy to hit from any lie (could be a toss up with the vsteels, but I feel the vsteels are slightly better off the tee) 17.5 still makes an appearance from time to time<br />
    <br />
    3.) R7 HFS 20.5 7 wood.....I absolutely hate hybrids, so this little club goes in and out of the bag, depending on the course and conditions <br />
    <br />
    I have many many others that were very important clubs for my game like Biggest Big Bertha 6*...975d 5.5....975j 6.5....and the original King Cobra 14* 3 wood..But those you are looking at 20-25yrs old, so left those out

    My Unicorns based off my own personal defintion....<br />
    <br />
    mizuno Pro 300 S driver - think this may have come out in 2001 or 2002 so just outside of 15 years<br />
    Taylor Made 510 TP<br />
    Taylor Made X-300 FCI irons<br />
    Titleist 906 F2 - the one fairway wood i wont sell<br />
    Taylor Made JDM SLDR TP 430 - the one driver i wont sell<br />
    Cleveland BeNi wedges - not sure about the years on these to be honest<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    The Mizuno 300S was something you always heard of but never saw back in the day. They have it as introduced in 2001 and the MSRP was $900 but for some reason I thought it came out a little before that. Vijay won the Masters with it in 2000 but maybe it was just a prototype at the time.<br />

    $900 MSRP for a driver in 2001 is great.

    My personal unicorn is the original Graf blue in stiff. I know it wasn't hard to find as it was a huge seller, but from a performance perspective it was unique. I put it into two drivers (975 jvs and TM r5 N) and it transformed them. They went from garbage with the stock offerings to bombers with the Graf blue. I've never found a shaft so solid, so long, so straight, but so easy to load. I could go after it as hard as I could swing (which back in my late 20s to early 30s was probably about 110) and would never feel the head twist. Also never found a shaft that gave such a great flight, medium launch that would climb then almost plateau and seem to go forever through the air before landing with plenty of roll. I still regret swapping it out of the r5 on a whim<br />
    and putting it in a Mac hemisphere which I lent to someone who "lost" it at home somewhere. Tried other shafts but the r5 was never any good without the blue. <br />
    <br />
    Only shaft that came close was the original purple and yellow pro force 75 stiff, which was just as solid and straight but not quite as nice feeling of easy to load. Had it in a GBB and it was a great club, but after finding the blue there was no other shaft I looked at for driver.<br />
    The kicker for both these unicorns was the price. They were both around the low $100s in Australia. at a time when the top Japan shafts were $300-$500.
