Sounder Tour Stars ... The ones Seve played.

I had a set of those. Great irons but shaft was like an iron rod. Replaced them with what ended up as crap. And brain fart as to what I did with the heads. Still have the one iron thought. And yeah it was an wrx-er one iron.....350 down the middle with a slight bend.

Mizuno MP-32's. I have never had a set but a buddy I used to play with all the time had them. He would let me hit them quite a bit, absolutely beautiful clubs and amazing feel. If I ever find a decent set on ebay I might have to get them and just see how I could do playing a full round with blades.

Wilson Staff RM Midsize with True Temper Gold Plus shafts.

 

That was one of the best combos that I ever put together.

 

Would love to get them refurbished one day and put them back to good use. Still haven't found a shaft that worked as well as those for me.

Ping i5.

 

The perfect player's cb with a little forgiveness. The lack of a ferrule gave them an industrial tool-like look.

 

I got a set of these when they came out and I could not play them. Straight up & straight down. Went nowhere. Into the wind I hit 5-8 iron the same distance. Totally unplayable for me. And I was soooo excited about them too.

Nicklaus N1s around 1991. First clubs I owned during my first golf lessons from a pro. Played 16 years before that with a homemade golf swing. So my clubs before that were tainted. Any change after the N1s are tainted by less playing time due to family life changes. But I wouldn’t change that for more time on the course,.......sometimes.

Livin' proof that Lefties are not naturally talented.

The ones I've loved the most when I had them but just didn't have the game for was Tommy Armour 845C/M mixed set... the last or the pre-RAM Armours, a great Maltby design, a very soft forging, and a steal on closeout for $225 for the set. I even had the matching staff bag, but I didn't have the game for that either. The irons were sold on for some GI components since I went through a club building phase, and the staff bag stored spare clubs in the garage for a decade after the dog got ahold of it on a stormy night... finally trashed it when cleaning out the garage and saw how much rust had developed on the buttons/zippers/rings/etc.

 

The set I think back to most and probably should still be gaming are the Mizuno JPX-EZ Forged... I just couldn't get over the chunky look of the Pw and Gw. If I could have, I'd probably be shooting the same or better and wouldn't have made 3 or 4 iron changes in the last 12 months. I'd buy them again, but the KSOUTH9 deals dried up and they sell for 30% more now used than what I paid for them new in January '17. I think they're probably one of only two brand new sets of non-component irons I've ever purchased in almost 20 years of golfing.

 

The best deal I've ever got and also should probably still be gaming are the Mizuno MX-200... $85 for 5-PW and another $18 for GW from Global with some crazy coupon codes in VALUE condition, but barely a bag ding on them. I think I traded them back to Global for about what I paid for them and it was still a bad move on my part... they would have been much better suited as backups, which I've also changed 3 or 4 times in the last
