Odyssey 7S.  The alignment lines have helped my putting.  
Ping G400LST a shorter iron in and 7S often has a bit less to negotiate.

2012ish Scotty Studio Select Newport.  Bought before season started and have used it for every 2017 round, which is a nearly impossible outcome for me.  Love that I'm not constantly changing the most important club in the bag.

Cobra F7 Fairway 3-4. By far my favorite fairway wood to date. The rails are so confidence inspiring hitting from the deck.  Love this club!

My set of brand new SM2s (still in the wrapper) that just came in the mail. 52, 56 and 60, even the grips still in plastic.

Paid an arm and a leg, but so worth it. No other wedges will touch my bag until 2024.

718 T-MB 3 iron. Its a godsend for folks who hate hybrids.

It's versatile, i can hit low balls off the tee that roll out to 240ish but i can also hit it high into a green and stop it when a 3 wood is just a little too much.

Those are amazing clubs and helping me play my best but...

Toulon Austin 34" has been the best and biggest game changer, Ive died and gone to Putter heaven

Hopefully in 2018 brings a 3w that I love( hopefully the rogue) and a 2 iron / ut ( hopefully the x forged ut) that I can put in the bag instead of the 5w

Tough call, but it would have to be my new putter...love it! And it's only my third putter in 53 years, obviously I don't change putters often.

My Garmin Approach G10 would be the runner up.

I would say it would have to be my new irons. Went with srixon this year, got a combo set of z565 (4-7)/z765 (8-PW) with KBS C-Taper Lite 110 stiffs. Bought them earlier on (May) so I got to play with them all summer. All I can say is wow! They look so great behind the ball and they go a mile in the air.

1 - Cleveland 588 CB irons - for a golfer who continually buys and sells,
20170908_140743.jpg
these are highly worth checking out, added some blue and white paint fill as well.  They are forged by Epon, amazing feel, superb turf interaction, and super forgiving.  We all have been looking for the players forged with forgiveness ... this is it for me!

2 - The new callaway forged mac daddy wedges - best feeling wedge ever hit, great in tighter lies and best thing about them is how they set up.  Check out the story on how they were made for Ryo.

I already gave my answer, but I just got one of these and its the best mark repair tool Ive ever had, now that I know how its supposed to be used. First time I saw one I thought the red dot was meant to be a fulcrum, and I knew that was the wrong way to fix a ball mark.

Swingman...Glad to hear you love the Directed Force so much!
For me best pickup(s) this year would have to be Mizuno mp18 combo set and also the ping g400 lst driver. Although I'm still waiting for my g400 to get here. Lol been using our shop demo head with my Fuji EVO III 661 X shaft I put a ping tip on. Driver is just solid all around and iron game has much improved with the Mizuno's (with some help from my swing coach too of course). Surprisingly, the Mizuno's knocked my PXG 0311's out of the bag. I thought I would have those in the bag for years but didn't like that I couldn't work the ball with the PXG's.
