Any iron(s) with stick-on badges, bridges, bolts, elastomer fillings or laughably strong lofts. The results of any iron shot, whether forged or cast, should reflect solely the quality with which it w

You guys aren’t playing PING irons because there is a notch in the hosel that isn’t visible at address? Seriously?   Edit: and you don’t like the look at address? Have you ever held an S55 or iBlade d

I won’t play anything like the M5 or M6 irons. Just way too clunky looking for me.

 

I also won’t play super expensive clubs like PXG. No. 1 I don’t think there’s any great technological breakthrough they’ve discovered and no. 2 I’m afraid I might fall in love with them and have to buy a set.

 

I’m a lot less particular about woods but again I won’t play any overpriced “ultra premium” clubs because there really is no adavatage of $1000 driver vs a 500 one.

Callaway and Taylormade. Both overpriced and taylormades terrible marketing. They also churn out new clubs way too often. Would only go with Ping Srixon Mizuno Titleist.

 

I don’t think taylormade bring out new clubs more than anyone else now, 2 drivers once a year

 

Look at mizuno with irons recently mp18 blades, sc, mmc, jpx 919 tour, forged and hot metal, now have a fourth between forged and hot metal, hot metal pro

 

jpx 900 wasn’t released that long ago and that had 3 versions also....

If offered for free like in a sponsorship? I would play anything.

 

If I’m spending my own money, anything older than 2012 is generally out the door. There are a few exceptions. As for the modern stuff GI like M5/M6 and ping g410 would be fine. it’d be tough for me to play SGI irons like GMax, Rogue X, Cleveland launchers or MGCB. Not to say I can’t if free clubs and money were offered.
