Ping TiSiTec 7.5* driver updated with Elements Chome cut down to 43". A little less distance than my M1 440 with 45" shaft, but absolute fairway finder, and since I usually hit it more centered, distance loss isn't as much as you'd expect. Also, quite forgiving for a 20 year old 320cc driver, and easy to hit off the deck!

Original Callaway Great Big Bertha Heavenwood w/stock Memphis 10 shaft. To this day, the straightest 220 yard club I have tried. Getting worn, but still gets the job done.

 

Ditto for my Warbird fairways with the same shafts. 3+ and a 4.

there's a Bobby Jones and Warbird driver downstairs with stiff graphites. not quite the same.

currently playing:
FT-5 - D
Ping G20 - FW
Hogan BH-5, 4-PW
Vokey 52, 56
Ping Anser 2 - Karsten grip
not flashy, reliable

I am still playing my original Ram Zebra and my five is a Great Big Bertha Titanium

 

I was actually looking at one of those Zebra's the other day to buy on ebay. Funny how that was the first putter with removable weights and look at us 30 years later?!?!?!

 

More like 40 years. In the late 70’s it was the most expensive putter I had ever seen at about $70

A few weeks ago I got a set of Ping i15s in very good condition. Went to the range hit them pretty good. Been out 4 times I think, and did well once . The other times is was inconsistent. Went out today same thing one good shot one bad. At the turn I grab my old zings and what a difference. I have to admit to myself just not good enough to play these. I went from hating the day to having fun again. I will sell them because I know if I keep them I will keep trying and it will not be fun again.The Zings are old but I love them.

Purchased a set of 690.cb 3-PW irons earlier this year out of frustration with my old set. Never touched that model in my life. They aren't leaving anytime soon.

 

Also still using an R9 Supertri with a Fubuki shaft, brand new when it released

 

Good to know these are good sticks, I've been looking into some different long irons. I'm a Titleist 681 lifer but the 3-5 irons are getting to be a bit of a workout in certain situations.... Titleist made some terrific irons in this early 00's era didn't think, not a lot of swing and misses in that Larry bobka era...

I have a Ping Zing SW (52*) in the bag. It has a lot of offset and high measured bounce, but it works well for chipping and 25-75 yard pitches on the soft turf conditions that I play on. Unfortunately, the grooves are starting to get fairly worn down, and shots out of the rough can run out more than they used to.

Was a huge Scotty fan can back in those days... I still have a couple putters from the late 90's and early 00's but things got off the rails in the mid to late 00's and now the Scotty Cameron program within Titleist comes across as a big scam in some areas. to put it simply, they have turned into the PXG of putters in a lot of ways. i'll probably catch flack from Cameron loyalists but IMO his putters today don't come close to matching up with what he did 15-20 years ago.... while his prices just keep going up! Just one guys opinion!

My understanding is that they do not rework the grooves at all. So while the refinishing will make the club look nice, the performance isn't going to change much. I have always wondered why people pay hundreds of dollars for refinished Ping wedges...

Early 90's Cleveland 588 sand wedge. I've freshened the grooves a couple of times with a handheld carbide tool. I don't play anything officially sanctioned, so I don't care if they're "conforming" or not, but suffice it to say they're not particularly sharp/deep/wide. My lob wedge is a forged Golfsmith that is maybe only year younger.

 

Shoot - all of my clubs are relatively old - the newest (by a long shot) being a 2014 driver.

 

(BTW, I didn't consider putters to be particularly interesting for this question because tons of players play really old putters...)
