Playing 10+ year old irons. WITB

Recommended Posts

If you are still playing 10+ year old irons, what are they?   


Been playing badly lately with new Honma TW 737V CB irons so I decided to bring out my old Bridgestone J33 CBs from 2007 I believe.   Playing the worst golf right now so I figure I got nothing to lose.  Instead of going forward, I am going backward and hopefully, the J33 CBs bring back some of the old good play.

Just put my old (but recently refreshed) Mizunos back in the bag. 11 years old now... 

FG 17s for me, last produced in ‘83. 

I'm in the process of building a set of nearly mint Ping Zings right now.

I'm playing TW276 Golden Ram Tour Grinds, from 1992.  Also have played quite a bit with TW282 Golden Rams (also 1992), 1980 Golden Rams, and a set of MP37s, which are from 2005.


There are others working thru the bag, but these are the main players, and representative of the general age of the irons I'm playing.

I still have my Vega VDC-01 in my bag which have been in my bag since 2009.  I usually never keep irons for more than 5 years but I can't seem to find a set that I like or aren't ridiculously expensive(over 2 grand).  I might just refinish these or may look and test the new honma TR20 B irons.

Mizuno MP-60 (released 2008) that I got a while back 3-PW $110 shipped.  I will never be as good as these clubs.
