I change irons way too much and I keep going back to older clubs when I do.  Pretty sure I have not played anything less than 5 years old, and I am currently trying a set of 20 year old DCI's.  I also have a few sets of I-3's on my watch list in case these do not work.

Just recently went to OnOff forged irons, but through last year I was playing Adams A4 forged.  Was on my second set, which are still barely used, but now in the backup bag.

Gamed Wishon 752tc irons for about 12 years and used them up till last Christmas.  Still have them and they sit haunting me.

I also know lots of blokes who play the PGF version of Ping Eye 2's; can hardly roll onto a public golf course in Australia without seeing a set in play on a Saturday.

Rotating different Mizuno blades, all of them older than 10 years. Oldest being the MS-1s from circa 83 I think. With blades and MBs the basic design has not changed, just that CAD technology makes it easier to pinpoint COG etc but a pured forged blade is a pured forged blade regardless of the age.
