Irons you wish you still had

What's the one set of irons you used to have that you wish you had kept? In the last 10 years I've just about every kind of new iron set known to man and every spring or about the middle of July I would sell my current irons for something new and "better". This winter I sold my Ping G2's ( which I liked but hit too high) and sat down and thought about which set of irons I regretted selling the most of all the irons I've ever had.After much thought (and a few beers) I decided to buy a set of Titleist 981's like I had about 6 years ago. I had a chance to go out and play a few holes today with them today and it was a beautiful thing.I now have my favorite irons of all time back and money left over for my membership. :kewlpics:

This is the reason I have stopped getting rid of clubs. My garage is starting to look like a pro shop but...

 

You can buy high or buy low, but whatever you do, don't sell anything......What do you think they make garages for and basements for? :kewlpics:

Miura PP-9003 PW-6 iron w/SmacWrap 780 F3

Taylormade Stealth 10.5* w/KBS TD 50

Taylormade SIM 2  21 degree w/Ventus Blue

Taylormade Stealth Rescue 22* w/Ventus Blue

Callaway X-Tour raw - 52 w/DG steel

Taylormade MYMG 3 - 56 w/KBS C-Taper Lite

3 years ago I purchased a set of Brand New Cleveland TA1's off eBay from someone liquidating a golf shop. The set was supposed to be factory sealed in the box untouched.

 

Well when I opened the box I saw that some one had changed the grips to Lamkin Crossline cords and that the words FormForged was not on the back of the clubs and that TA1FF was on the hosel. I was pissed I thought they were fakes, because at that time I remember Cleveland releasing a disclaimer about Fake clubs being made in China.

 

I email the seller and he said he had no idea and would not refund me the money. Long story short I sold them on eBay as possible fakes and within a year found out that they were tour only.

How stupid can I be, well 3 years ago I was only hoin' retail clubs and had no idea. :kewlpics:

New set of Left Handed Mizuno Comp EZ's complete set 1-LW I picked up in 2002. Played them and loved them. Always babied them and they were awesome. I have never seen another set. My dumb a** sold them on ebay and I have regreted it every since. Even tried to buy them back for $200 more then I sold them for but it didn't happen. I don't think I will ever find another set but I am always looking.

Definitely my PING ISI's! I had always wanted a set of PING irons, and when I moved to the States in '97 I got fitted for some. The whole process was great, and based on how I was hitting the test irons on the range, I immediately laid down the necessary $$$ for a 3-SW set. Even had my name engraved on the hosel in that lovely cursive script. Beautiful!

 

Played with them until last Spring when I erroneously thought they were the cause of my prolonged spell of 'hitting it fat'. eBay'd them and picked up a set of Callaway X-14. Well, I've never really liked them and now they're on the chopping block. Unbelievably, I searched out a used set of ISI's to replace them and didn't like the way they looked anymore. Go figure!

 

I tried some used G2's instead and felt the PING magic again. I'm off for a fitting on Sunday morning and, if all goes well, I should have a new set of G5/i5 irons in the next week or so. Wonderful!

I purchased a set of factory 690.cb's with PX 6.5 back in April of 2004. Best combo for me ever, especially in the wind. My clubmaker keeps my specs and duplicated the PX frequencies from that set in other brand heads but nothing ever felt the same or played as well.

I was the first customer in Denmark to place an order on and purchase a set of retail TM 300 forged irons. That was in 2001.

 

They played really well and later I've found out that they were true Miura forgings. Sold them at a really good price, but I shoulda kept them, for sure!

I had a set of Maruman ltd edition Curtis Strange blades that my ex talked me into selling because they were sitting in a closet. I bit, and now wish I had never done that. Those were the best blades I have ever played. One of these days, I'll find another set.

Titleist TSi4 8*, Ventus Velocore Black 6 TX
Titleist TSi2 13.5, Tensei CK Pro white 70 TX
Titleist TS2 18* hybrid, Tensei Pro White 90X
Titleist T200 4-5, T100s 6-PW, Project X 6.5 (if the m(*&^erf(*&ers ever get here)
Vokey SM8 50, 54, 60

The only ones I really regret selling were some Mizuno TP19s a few years back.

My biggest regret is not buying a set of Cobra Greg Norman Signature blades. House of Forged were selling an immaculate 2-PW set of irons a few years back and I was dead set to buy them and didn't. I spent the money (and then some besides) on an engagement ring instead... Bah.

The annoying thing is, I'd still have the clubs...

Old Nike woods with blue shafts, 712Us and a bagful of 681s, two rusty old Vokey SM5s, an Eye 2 Gorge L wedge and an Anser 2
