I’ve been an avid golfer for 30+ years, and I would say I probably have an unhealthy addiction to new clubs. I’m a 12.8 handicap, so I’m certainly not an authority on anything golf related. I’ve probably bought close to 15 sets of new irons in my golf life. Ashamed, many of the irons I’ve gotten rid of (for pennies on the dollar) improved my game considerably, and I should still be playing. There is however, one set I could never part from; the only ones that have a place in my home like a fine piece art, my 2002 Mizuno  MP 30’s. How about you, any set you can’t part ways with? Just got my new Titleist AP3’s on Friday of last week btw...

It almost seems too easy to say, but Miura Baby Blades; I can't see being without a set.

Nice to know the pr-gr idbls are held in such high regard,  one can only guess at the number   of high end irons you have been in contact with over the years.

Glad i hung onto my set.  

It's easy to forget how good they are when we are continually bombarded with new equipment choices.
