How many sets of irons have you had?


Recommended Posts

Sorry, now you can see all the sets
I'm an idiot. I have had a total of 67 sets of irons in my life. Attached is list of my sets, it's absolutely stupid because some of them were awsome and I got rid of them for no reason. Many were repeats like two sets of 300's and two sets of x-300 fci prototypes. When will I ever learn? My 704's I use now have been in the bag for a year and a half and I just bought a set of used Apex 99' blades. Will I use them, no probably not but it was a good deal so I bought them.

I couldn't attach them so I cut and pasted. Here they are.

Many of these sets I used before I knew what was good and not good. Every set was functional though. Some better than others of course. I just bought sets for the fun of it no matter how much I loved my set I was using. I still do it today.

I forgot I started this post almost a year ago. The bad part is I have not purchased any iron sets since this posting. What's wrong with me? I think I finally figured out it was to expensive is what happened.

A few sets were pawned off on friends or traded in for the next but in order:

Adams Original GTs (gift from pops, later "borrowed/kept" by pops)

Cleveland TA5s (Paid $200, lent to a friend)

Adams GT Ultimates (Paid $125, "borrowed/kept" by pops)

TM Rac MBs (Paid $600, traded in for MP 30's below 90/90 Golfsmith)

Mizuno MP 30's (traded for the MP 33's plus cash)

MP 33's (Sold for $200)

Nike Blades (Paid $380, sold for $400)

TM Forged 300's (Paid $200, lent to a different friend)

Ben Hogan Apex 50 (Paid $200, set was stolen)

Ben Hogan Apex (Paid $175, current gamers)


All that is within 6 years. I came up or even on a lot of the trades or resales of the sets, so I don't feel like I've pissed away a lot of money on equipment. I always made sure I had the cash to play anytime anywhere. Plus, I added two playing buddies who either did not have a set of irons, or wanted to learn the game and needed something to swing.


I guess I still "own" the two sets of Adams, the Cleveland TA5's, the TM 300's, and the BH Apex set, yet only the BH Apex set is at my apartment. And other than acquiring a back up set sometime later this year, that's it for me. Nothing new has caught my eye and the BH's I hit as well as I have ever hit irons. The shorter irons in the MP 33's were more accurate for me, but the longer irons in the Apex are longer and straighter. The Apex are more forgiving and have a higher trajectory than the Apex 50, in case any one was wondering.

Hey All:


Well I know that I am definitely lacking the number of sets compared to most but here goes...


My First Set: I never was interested in golf prior to this but a few years ago...more than a few years ago I bought a set of Precision Golf Cubs. They were awful clubs in hindsight. The heads of the irons were consructed of zinc. I was coming home from work after a night shift and met Arnold Palmer in passing. He was coming out of a hotel in downtown Hamilton, Ontario for the Senior PGA Tour stop that year for the Senior Canadian Open. After a 5 minute conversation I went home changed and shopped for my first set of clubs. It was a 7 piece set. I was a 5 time a year duffer then.


Second: I upgraded from those irons and got a set of Goliath. Actually they were copies of Taylormade Burner irons with the copy bubble shaft. 3-PW


Third: a set of Wilson Pro Staff irons. 3-PW. I started to really enjoy the game even though I was only going out maybe 10 times.


Fourth: a set of Jazz Golf Fat cat Flow Weighted irons 4-SW. Jazz is a OEM up here in Canada and vey little known. I bought these three years ago when I decided to give this grand game a serious shot. Best thing I could've ever done. I recently gave them away, they got me to where I am.


Current: My beloved Wilson Staff Pi5 3-PW. Where my driver and putter are always on death watch (recently I bought a new putter) these irons are going nowhere.


In total I've had five.

my uncle made my first set out of old cast blade clubheads, not sure what the name was "Walter" something or other (not Hagen) and arthritic grips. I used those (same set of grips) for about 10 years. Lost the 8 iron at some point...still have the rest in the basement.

Titleist 690.MB

Mizuno Mp32

I am probably going to trade my MP 60s for another set of MP 32s. I am not real thrilled with my 60s...

I would just wander from set to set, constantly trading, buying or selling. Still do, I guess... Sometimes I would try the same type of set but with different shafts, comparing the two side by side.

First was a half set of Confidence lady irons (as a kid),

then I got a half set of Go Mens irons.

After that, I got a full set of Callaway Big Bertha 2002 iron set (which my father did not want). I used them till last week.

I "just" bought a set of Titleist 690.MB (through this forum).


So that makes it 4 sets of irons (all of them necessary I think, maybe apart from the blades :friends: )

Started playing mid July 2005. In this time I had/ have 3 iron sets. First were MX-17 (playing them for a month and then getting the MX-23 with my father playing the MX-17.) Then as mentioned the MX-23, after this since 3 weeks the 735CM (with my father now playing MX-23 and selling the 17's for about 150 dollars...) I'm not planning to replace this set of irons because they are really good, mosty the short irons.
