Hello GolfWRX Community,<br />
<br />
Ryan Barath here.<br />
<br />
I wanted to open a discussion based off my most recent Podcast:<br />
<br />
The topic of cult clubs started a greater conversation about what are the best clubs of all time for YOU, including shaft. I know there is probably at least one club you either wish you still had for those fun casual rounds or you still bring out from time to time.<br />
<br />
To get this party started, for me it would have to be my - 8.5 983E with a prolite Stiff along with Steelhead 3 fw woods 3&5 with M10 shafts.<br />
<br />
When I was a kid I couldn't really afford to change much and I wasn't really close to many golf shops so I just stuck with what I had and they all worked really well. <br />
<br />
Looking forward to hearing from everyone.

    TaylorMade Tour Preferred irons (2008) with TT Lite XL shafts for me. Nothing special about them other than they were my first set. The feeling of a flushed 3-iron was what kept me coming back for more.

    Have this exact set up in my old Titleist bag. I bring it to the range with me sometimes just to make sure it can still hang. It can.. LEGEND.

    I have a cobra baffler 4 wood. Old school piece of rebar for a shaft and the prettiest persimmon. I still dust it off and take it to the range because it was the club for me when I was kid. I had it regripped last year. If I could actually make it work in the bag I would play it in a heartbeat.

    The only older clubs that I use with any frequency are:<br />
    <br />
    a) Titleist 983E driver - Use it a few times a year. Centre strikes with this club are as good as anything new (for my swing). However, the results are very bad if you miss at all (especially direction on toe strikes).<br />
    <br />
    b) Various Ping Eye 2 SW / LW (+, XG/Gorge) - not sure these are any better than various wedge options out there today. However, if the grooves/face are still in good condition I think they are just as good.<br />
    <br />
    c) Ping Zing 2 L/S wedge - had laying around and using as high bounce / wide sole lob wedge. Probably the least popular of my options.
