Too many set of clubs what to do if you like them all?

I have always wonder what one should do if they own a few set of irons and seem to be able to hit all of them quite well. I have often thought that if you get rid of one you will never find the set like that again. As for me I play with a set one week and switch to another the next week. Then I thought that if i keep doing that I will never gain consistency. So sometime I go with one set for a few months until I feel that I have played my best with it then I would switch. What are your experience? :idhitit:

Yes, I agree you would play much better becoming familiar/intimate with just one set. Therefore, if you would kindly e-mail me the description of all the clubs you own, I'll tell you which ones I will "store" for you. And... I will store them at no cost to you!!!!! Yep, just ship them my way...

 

Honestly, I do feel I could have been a much better golfer if I had not become addicted to this club ho mentality. Over the years, I've owned so many sets... There has always been the mindset that if I miss a shot with this set of irons, I'll just put another set in play. As if it's the irons fault! LOL

 

I'm down to two sets of irons. Looking at probably dumping one of those. I'm nearing the age where one set should finish out the rounds the Good Lord has allowed for this ol' body. Pros can usually change sets/manufacturers and hardly hiccup. We amateurs are a different story. The best analagy is this... Lived in a progressive metro area for 10 years. Had to have the latest and best in the bag. Callaway, Ping... Whatever was hot, I had to have it. Moved to a much more rural setting. The first few rounds with some of the "old codgers" with their Spauldings and Wilsons... stuff that had been in their bags for 20 years... was humbling. Got my clock cleaned by some of these ol' farts who simply knew their clubs as if they were an extension of their arms/hands. Sit down with a piece of paper and draw columns. List, in your own handwriting, the +'s and -'s of each set. It should become apparent which clubs will make up your "long term" bag. Then, get rid of the excess. Keep it around and you'll be tempted.

 

Good luck!!!

I agree. I find that the consistency and your comfort level goes up if you stick to what's working and don't switch often. I don't like doing it - but I have to sell/weed out some old clubs that I really like. There seem to be two differences:

 

Scenario 1 - The club simply got outdated. For example - I sold my Launcher 330 for a Launcher 400, which was an EASY decision.

 

Scenario 2 - I like another club just as much. For example - I sold my beloved Hogan Apex Edge Pros (which are fine, fine irons) and put a set of Tourstage Z101's into play this year. I debated this endlessly - but when I found a set of J33 combos for only $299 brand new - the decision to sell the oldest set (Hogans) was made, sadly.

    • In-hand photos of 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus, Stealth 2, Stealth 2 HD drivers + fairways woods
      Check out our front page launch stories here and here. 
       
      What you need to know: For the first time, carbon is the most prevalent material by volume in a TaylorMade driver, and more carbon equals better performance, says the company. Last year, TaylorMade debuted a 60X Carbon Twist Face. With TaylorMade Stealth 2, engineers are bringing carbon to more of the golf club — and unveiling a new-and-improved Carbon Twist Face in the process. Stealth 2 Plus (low spin, most workable) Stealth 2, and Stealth 2 HD (draw bias, high launch, most forgiving) drivers make up the Stealth 2 family.

      What you need to know: Breakthrough movable weight technologies and versatile designs are the hallmarks of the 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 fairway woods. Stealth 2 Plus is branded as “three fairway woods in one” owing to the unique performance characteristics afforded by the 50-gram sole weight. Stealth 2 features a slightly lower profile 3D carbon crown than Stealth. This moves CG down and away from the toe with more weight in the rear of the club for higher launch and MOI. Ultra-high MOI Stealth 2 HD features an oversized 200cc head and low-profile sole, creating an easy-to-hit, draw-biased club.
