What made you quit the endless cycle of buying/ selling clubs?!
Posted 18 October 2017 - 12:19 PM
For me, it was the realization that you posted above ... outside of a few key adjustments here and there, the different clubs rarely related to any different scoring or playability. New driver honeymoon ends fairly quick for me, and overall would rather spend money and aggravation on lessons than inventory turnovers.

Or schedule a fitting and then go shoot the round of your life with your current bag. That's what I did.... apparently just had to let them know their jobs were at risk, then they finally shined bright.

The same with forged or cast/gss or normal 303. It's proven that the shape of the head or milliing depth decides how soft or hard a iron or putter will feel. Materials used is irreverent.
People want what Golf Digest Hot List or MGS says is the best and once obtained realize it doesn't make them any better. So, they buy and sell looking for that perfect club/clubs.
I mean look at Bob Parsons he spent 200k on different clubs and millions on PXG and still isn't any better because of equipment. Until people understand it's not the equipment for the reasons they suck then there will always be equipment hoes.

Best answer I've seen - this is the cure! You'll spend a lot of money on properly fit clubs and then have no reason to switch due to them being perfect for you

This may be site heresy, but...
1) Never buy a club that you haven't demoed at least once against what you already have at the same place at the same time.
2) Pay less attention to the one great shot that you hit in the demo more to how most of them - including the bad ones - did.
3) Understand that what any of us think about a club is based on our swings and preferences, not yours.
4) A deal is only a deal if its a club you wanted to begin with. Otherwise just likely to mean you're out less money than if you paid full price.
Nothing wrong with a new toy if that's what you're after. But randomly buying gear hoping to find the magic club isn't far removed from hitting on the lottery, especially with all the choices out there today. You'll always be left wondering if there's something better out there.

I was like you. I was changing equipment more often than changing socks...there were times when I ordered a club(s), and the club(s) I ordered previously hadn't even arrived yet. What changed for me was a fitting I had late last year. I haven't purchased anything since then...quite remarkable for me. I realized that anything new isn't really that much of a game changer, has no WOW! factor. This is the longest I have played the same set of clubs, and the only thing that has changed is my handicap, which dropped by more than 5 strokes this season. Breaking 80 used to be a real challenge, now I shoot in the 70s more often than not, and broke par twice...a first for me.
I am perfectly happy with the equipment I have, and have no plans to change it. Yes, new equipment may look different, but I really don't really think it performs better. I haven't played with anyone who has anything new that said, "Wow, this totally changed my game."
Plus, all that buying and selling gets stressful, not to mention having a garage full of golf club boxes.
