I finally found what fit me. With more practice/playing my scores dropped and there are no miracle  clubs.
I still try a new club or hit a demo.
They don't  impress me anymore.
My game is maxed out at about  a 14 hcp.
There aren't  any clubs that I can hit better than my present ones.
The only thing that will help me now is practice and playing experience.

I've been through a few sets and have surplus of drivers, putters, grips, shafts etc. right now. I have taken a few of these desirable finds and incorporated them into my bag, and hopefully they are here to stay. Consistency is what has brought me to this and nothing else than what I already own is going to be any better than it is right now. Playing the same clubs day in and day out is where my best scoring still lies, and hopefully they are a little better suited to me than my previous "Old longtime gamers".

Lots of search and switch, but I think I'm coming out the other side a little wiser and better prepared for good golf having experimented a bit.

In the old days , you got a club then went to learn how to hit it . Even pros did that to some extent.
For me I just used to get bored of the same clubs, I even had a winter set so I could change the lot once a year!
My problem is that I have to totally love the look of a club, from top to bottom , the slightest thing that I was not loving I would change if I could , like grip, paint infill, ferrules etc, otherwise it would eventually be moved on .
Now I am settled
with fitted irons, hybrid and wood with steel shafts , wedges that nobody else has , a Japanese driver and two putters , and I like the look of all of them .
However I just know that eventually I will see some new irons that look sweeter to me , and I will be ďdue a new set ď 😂
Itís only a hobby after all.

I used to go on ebay and constantly tinker with my set and trying out different clubs. Then I graduated from college and am now a civil engineer that is primarily on project site in the summers. I don't play as often anymore so familiarity with the clubs I already have is the best thing I can do to try to play somewhat decent.

As soon as I figured out I need lie angles that are 3-4º flat of "standard," I pretty much stopped ho'ing.

It's a yuge pain in the a$$—and not to mention expensive—to get every club adjusted to my specs, and it's extremely difficult to find anything I want that already matches my specs.

Combine this with the fact I've finally got my long game to a point where I can trust the ball flight with driver, 4w, and hybrid, and you've got a player who is now an ex-ho.

In Australia they have introduced club renting, where you sign a contract to rent clubs for a year. I got CBX irons for $37 AUD a month. A full set and bag would likely set you back about $100 a month, which to me is a lot, but to hard core club hoes probably isn't that much. It means you will always be in the newest gear, and you are forced to keep it for at least a year. Obviously you have to trust the fitter as if you don't like them too bad you're stuck with them.

It just kicked in for me last week.

I didnít have the greatest year handicap wise and was looking to tinker some more with my bag. Now my miss has been getting in trouble off the tee with my driver. But then I got sick a little over a month ago and spent wayyyyy too much time on this site. Started thinking about all the new offerings and yada yada. Well started feeling better and went to the range late last week and rembered how good my MP-4ís really are. Plenty long enough and if the Indian is on the Arrow does exactly as desired. No need to change the bow.

So you're still buying stuff, just not selling it ;-)

Getting fitted is the best remedy for compulsive golf equipement purchases!

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

OK, true (but rather lengthy) story here.   When I first starting working at a 'nice' private club (and was a poor college student),  there was a member who was a very decent player (maybe 4 hcp).  He obviouisly could afford to do this as he had numerous memberships just in MA, but he seemed to have a different set of clubs almost every time he played.  So and so played well last week, so he bought a set that the tour player used.   He eventually got caught up in the Henry-Griffitts fitting system and wouldn't wait until he got his new set.  

When they arrived in the golf shop (not where I worked), he put them immediately in the bag and played.  He played perhaps the best round of his life, shooting 2 or 3 under at The Country Club.  So, what does any sane golfer do?  Not this!  Well, he went back to the golf shop with the new clubs and said there was something wrong with the clubs because "I'm not that good!"

Back to me and why I stopped buying new equipment.  At some point, I finally understood that when I had a set of clubs that I liked and which allowed me to hit the types of shots I wanted, I should stick with them instead of having to learn how to best use a different set.  It took me time (remember, I work in the golf industry so I don't pay MAP prices) to put this into practice.  This epiphany finally took hold with my 4th set of Ben Hogans plus some other sets over 12 years, the 2003 models (but not the limited edition 50th Anniversary version).  They stayed in the bag for 11 seasons, until I realized I needed something that provided some margin of forgiveness.  I tried Mizuno MP 25s last year, but they never quite felt 'right' to me.  Now, I have Titleist 716 AP2s with NS Pro 105T shafts.  These feel 'right' and allow me to launch the ball in the air, plus I seem to be able to flight them down when I want to keep the ball under the wind.  Hopefully, these will stay in the bag for quite some time!

BTW, I was cured from buying new putters for many years when I realized a simple truth.  Why do golfers putt better when they buy a new putter?  It's because most of them go and practice with the new toy!  This stopped me from buying putters until the newer stuff with grooves (Ping TRs) promised better distance control on off-center strikes.

Back to me and why I stopped buying new equipment.  At some point, I finally understood that when I had a set of clubs that I liked and which allowed me to hit the types of shots I wanted, I should stick with them instead of having to learn how to best use a different set.  It took me time (remember, I work in the golf industry so I don't pay MAP prices) to put this into practice.  This epiphany finally took hold with my 4th set of Ben Hogans plus some other sets over 12 years, the 2003 models (but not the limited edition 50th Anniversary version).  They stayed in the bag for 11 seasons, until I realized I needed something that provided some margin of forgiveness.  I tried Mizuno MP 25s last year, but they never quite felt 'right' to me.  Now, I have Titleist 716 AP2s with NS Pro 105T shafts.  These feel 'right' and allow me to launch the ball in the air, plus I seem to be able to flight them down when I want to keep the ball under the wind.  Hopefully, these will stay in the bag for quite some time!

BTW, I was cured from buying new putters for many years when I realized a simple truth.  Why do golfers putt better when they buy a new putter?  It's because most of them go and practice with the new toy!  This stopped me from buying putters until the newer stuff with grooves (Ping TRs) promised better distance control on off-center strikes.

I've bought and sold more clubs this year than anytime in the past. I'm understanding that clubs make very little to no difference in the scores I shoot. Yet I continue searching through the BST, Ebay, and Craigslist to hopefully find that magic club or deal. It's completely consuming and stressful to be honest. Any advice on how to quit this endless cycle?

Quit????  What's the fun in that I have PXG irons and I still buy clubs haha

At some point you realize that if every years new clubs and balls were really 10 yards longer, like the manufactures claim, you should be hitting the ball 1/2 mile by now. Sooner or later, a good golfer stops worrying about how far they hit it and finds a set of clubs they can actually score with. Then they are done being a club ho.
