Im still playing Ben Hogan H40 (not the oversize model) w/ Aplex 3 shafts. I believe they are at least 13 to 14 years old. The only reason I am still playing is because I like the way the feel and the ball flight that I get out of these irons. I also really can not part with them because they were my first name brand set of irons, made by one of my favorite players of all time, I just wish that mine were forged. I still have the original grips on the clubs as well, but am finally going to break down and change them, just in case the new set I going to have made up doesnt work out.

Does it count if you keep buying more of the same set? ;)

I actually have 4 sets of MP30s that I've been playing since '04.

The first set was given to me by a friend and they played so well for me I never switched. I've bought other sets to try out different shafts, which I know may sound weird but I don't like messing with my gamers in any way. I'm superstitous like that. I don't want them to think they aren't good enough, develop some sort of self esteem issues, and start acting crazy on me. :clapping: Like when I eyeball those MP57s, I come home from the shop and can feel the MP30s staring at me like I've been caught cheating on them. :clapping: It makes me feel all dirty, and I have to go shower....

Bought a set of used MX-23's recently, love them.

 

I think the decision to play new equipment comes down to $$$. Why spend $800 when you can achieve the same results for $300.

I am still playing my four yr old fusion irons. The fact they made different golf magazines hotlists not one, two, but three yrs in a row, shows there is no reason to replace. Technology limits mean that nothing new is coming. Just repackaging and rebranding.

Stick with a set, stop ho'ing and groove a swing. Cally all the way baby!

I play Titleist 962b's. I've played them since 1998 or so, so they have some rounds under their belt. I haven't been able to find a set that visually lines up for me like they do and has the feel and forgiveness that they do. As of late, I have been pressuring myself to at least try something new, so I am looking at the MP-57's. Much larger clubs, but technology i suppose is on their side.

I am a high handicapper who is getting back into golf after 10+ years. I bought a cheap new RAM set but have slowly replaced drivers and putter. The irons are not too bad for cheap clubs.

 

I have a 33 year old (could be slightly older) set of Wilson Dynapower woods and irons. I think I may regrip the irons because I can hit golf wiffle balls very well with them. I need to regrip them before I go to the range. It is weird because they look like really good (modern) blades and I probably need OS game improvement irons but I think I can hit the old Wilsons really well. They have True Temper shafts.

I've been playing the MP60's since they first were introduced. I don't change irons, or any equipment very often, for that matter (I still have one of my first set of shoes sitting ina closet). My last set was the Cally X-14's which I used for about 7 or 8 years.

 

After playing for 15 or so, years, I'm on my 3rd putter, my third 3 wood, my 4th set of irons (one set I purchased impulsively and only used for 4 months), 4th set of wedges, and last, but not least, on my 5th driver.

 

For what it's worth, I usually make a change when I feel an improvement, for whatever reason, from one club to another.

Put my beloved Bridgestone J's professional weapons back in the bag a couple of years ago.

 

Released sometime around 1990. I must've had 20 sets since then but I've gone back to these old favourites to rediscover some of the feel I've been missing.

 

As good as ANY players cavity back made prior or since and more workable than a lot of modern day blades. The perfect set of irons!

I am playing with the 2004 Top Flite Tour irons. These irons are freaking unbelievable. On another forum there is a 38 page post about how good they are. I never bought into it but I found a set for $79 brand new. I took the plunge. Needless to say my first round I shot the lowest I ever have. Came back and sold my old irons right away.

I'm just getting back into the game after a long layoff. I'm using my old (1988-89) Cougar II CB irons and metal conventional sized woods. I have added a 21 and 24 degree hybrid to replace the 3 and 4 irons and will replace the 1,3,5 woods with a new driver and long fairway wood but the irons still play well enough for my current game.

      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
