Titleist DCI 981s w/ 6.5 original rifle shafts here. Got fitted for them back when they first came out. Stopped playing golf for about 10 years and am just getting back into things. Not nearly as good as I was when I used these irons back in my junior golf days.

Good thing, picked up a nice set of MP-69's today.

If you had asked the question earlier in the summer both my sets would have qualified, but due to old age and a great deal on ebay, my modern irons are now Titleist 716s with SteelFiber shafts :) I was playing Titleist 680s with DGS300s. But when I could buy 716s with SteelFiber shafts for the price it would be just to reshaft my 680s with SteelFiber, I had to upgrade.

My classic irons are still the Hogan Apex PCs from 1983-84.

FYI, I stopped being a club ho about 10 years ago, when Trackman became popular. Once I was able to easily compare clubs (my gamer vs the newfangled thing) and see that I really didn't hit the new club any better than my old club, I stopped buying new clubs, and only bought something when something wore out. My driver, 3 wood and hybrid are all 10 years old. Nothing in the market performs better for me. Wedges I buy every couple of years when the grooves go out.

Edited by dpark, 14 September 2017 - 09:36 PM.

Old stuff:
1962 Tommy Armour AT2W Driver
1953 Macgregor M65W EOM 3 wood
1978 H&B PowerBilt Citation 4 wood
1984 Ben Hogan Apex PC 2-E
1968 Wilson Dual Wedge
1964 Acushnet O-SET M6S Bullseye Putter

New stuff
Cobra ZL 10.5 driver
Adams 5050 14.5 fairway wood
Adams A2P 20* hybrid
Titleist 716 MB irons 4-PW
Titleist SM6 wedges 52, 56, 60
Odyssey RX #9 putter

I've been using TaylorMade 320s since January. Got them for $120ish in good condition to replace my Top-Flite box set irons I'd been using for 2 years. So while they are like 17 years old, I've only had them for 9 months. I guess that counts.

I still have Taylormade RAC OS2 IRONS in the bag. I've been on a year long search for their replacement and finally decided on the P790. Will be here next Thursday

My set that's outlasted a new set of Miura small blades ,a blank proto set of vega blades , mp 68 , legacy black , and vega raw vdC-01 is the titleist circa 681-680 tour prototype MB I've been playing almost two years now .  Don't know how to describe how well I get on with them. But I've hit everything and no iron has beaten them on course or on trackman. Highest ball speed and swing speed recorded for me with a 6 iron is this sets 6.  And I hit them so close at times it's unbelievable.  Dispersion and distance in a total package  This set os best described as a 680 set with 681s less offset. More muscle on the pad and topline than 680 and it's blank where the 681-680 stamp would be.  Has MJ hand stamped into the hosel.   Believe to be made for Matt jones as a backup set. And I bought them from a friend of his caddy after he went to the 712 mb. I paired them with the modus 130x and they are heavenly.

17 M2  V2 Tour 10.5  Fuji Atmos Black 6X   Green Graphic special edition
17 M1 15  Graphite Design   ADDI 8X
Titleist TMB 2 Graphite Design 105X prototype
Vega VDC-01 Raw Handground 4-pw Modus 130X
Vega VW-02 Raw 52 56 60 S400
009 GSS 1.5  , Beached, tungsten sole weights

Glad to see others mention the R7 Tp Irons. If I could ignore every commercial on TV, avoid watching the PGA tour guys, ignore what other golfers say about new clubs, and not read this forum (no disrespect intended) I would be perfectly happy with my old set of R7 Tp with rifle 6.0 shafts.
