Surprisingly, a Honma TW-Forged #3 driving iron (secondhand), then a Graphite Design Tour AD GT 6X for an old V-steel 4w I had.

 

 

 

Edit: I say surprisingly, because I was pretty happy with my Honma TW-U #3 utility, but the price on the newer model was too good to pass up. Better feel too.

 

Also, this came on Jan 2nd, though I ordered and paid for it online before the end of last year:

Just bought the 54* Mizuno S18 wedge to match the 60* I got for Christmas. I’m not a huge fan of changing wedge brands, but these are miles better than the Callaway’s they’re replacing.

Driver: Callaway Epic Max 10.5*
Fairway: Callaway Epic Max - 15*, 21*, 25*
Irons: TaylorMade M CGB Max 6-SW
Wedges:  Callaway PM Grind 59* and 64*
Putter:  Odyssey Stroke Lab Black - Bird of Prey/Number 10
Ball:  Titleist ProV1

I might regrip this winter, but so far I've got enough freebies for Christmas (balls, new driver shaft). Also apparently won a Cleveland (TFI 2135) putter in one of the WRX giveaway threads.

 

I probably won't have to buy anything, outside of membership dues and perhaps some Trackman time with the new driver shaft (Aldila Tour Green 70X, playing at 44").

Maybe a fairway wood. Either a Titleist or a Cobra F7 to line up more with my driver and hybrid. Other than that I am 100% happy with my bag, which is unusual. Definitely going to regrip everything in the bag though.

Found a decent price on a couple dozen yellow AVX balls, looking for them to arrive soon.

 

After years of saying I'd never found anything that works better than a ProV1x for my game I'll be darned if I didn't try a sleeve of the AVX and get hooked like a trout! Leave it to me to start Jonesing for the only ball out there more expensive than a ProV...

Ordered it in 2017 but picked it up and paid for it yesterday so technically it's the first... 716 AP2 3 iron to finish off my set, which is awesome cause I had it out today and apparently I can't hit it. Good start to 2018!!!

New years night I ordered some shafts - FST 90 to replace my stock T-step 90's on my R7's. These cheap ($9) performing shaft are similar to TaylorMade ones. In fact, FST supplies TM with shaft the last couple years.

 

Also ordered on the same night, XE1 65* wedge... I was just curious when I saw the C3i commercial... For far less cheaper, the XE1 would be fun to sample with before It goes on Ebay.....or sell it to a friend. But you never know, if this works, it'll stay in the bag.....
