I'm a hoarder....I used to ' Retire ' full intact bags about every other year...   Once I had a bag fully dialed in , I would become bored and begin the build and fit process on the next one

I could also put any of these back in play.  🙂

I have exactly identical clubs for my backup bag, it's not fully assembled as yet, but I do have everything for it.

I was thinking the same thing!  I have a backup bag, a vintage bag, a minimalist bag, a lefty bag, a minimalist bag of “heritage” family clubs, and a bag for any friends that come into town and want to play, but didn’t bring their sticks.  All of these bags are in some general state of disassembled, but i could have any one of them ready for play first thing tomorrow, if so needed.

 

Yes, I have a problem..........

No you don't.

Fairway woods:  915 or 910 3w

Hybrids: 818H2 or Cobra Baffler Pro

Dan Drake and I appear to be of a similar mind.  

 

A glimpse . . .  all have a story. 

 

The question was clearly, "do you have a backup BAG." Just kidding of course. Nice collection.

I keep a bag at my in laws lake house for when we visit.  It has the same irons as I use in my gamer bag, Nike VRS Forged irons. The rest of the backup bag:

 

Cobra F8 driver

TM M4 3HL wood 

3-4 Callaway BB hybrids

Nike Engage wedges

Odyssey Stroke Lab 7

 

Honestly, i could be perfectly happy using this set up as my main bag if I had to.

Like most here I move through equipment but I've always had the tendency in my hobbies to never keep spares. To me it's wasted potential in a way, I really hate having stuff sit around and collect dust (I would make a terrible collector). Maybe it's some sort of OCD but I have 0 spares of anything. If something breaks I'm out till I can get a replacement.

I have two extra bags.  It’s sort of like putters...if one starts misbehaving it goes in the closet and use another.  Until it starts misbehaving... rinse and repeat.

This is me for the most part. If I know I'm not going to use it reasonably soon, it gets tossed, donated, or sold.

 

The 2 sets of irons will likely come down to the fact that I might not be able to sell the others. And I have 2 irons and a hybrid that might get swapped into the bag at any round. But I don't have spares if anything.

I was planning to build an "Office Bag" which I kept at work, I have the driver, I have the shafts I play, I have a few extra wedges, I have enough putters to fill it's own bag. But with how little golf I've been able to play (lockdown) I might have decided to just buy more custom putters 🤷‍♂️

The only break to this rule is for some reason I held on to 2 broken shafts, one driver and a fairway. Was trying to convince myself to build speed sticks but seems dangerous since both were tip shatters and I'm not even sure how I would build the weight and have it secured safely

Ok, I have done that, too. I was totally going to get to it, too. Just give me a minute. 🤣

 

The wife got a little easier when I showed her that all this horse trading I've been doing has resulted in a free set of irons I really enjoy. I'm not just spending a bunch of money, I've actually made a little back.

Valid point.  I wanted to see if it was me that had a problem because I am constantly tweaking my set and i've accumulated a ton of stuff over the years.  Glad to see I'm not alone. 🙂

Same boat, was trying a bunch of drivers and fairways making a couple bucks here and there. It's pretty fun finding really good deals and trading your way up!

If it makes you feel better, I have over 40 drivers, and somewhere between 10 and 15 sets of irons.  Most of these could be ready to go at a moment's notice.
