As usual, after much tinkering, chopping and changing, I've found the right 14 to take me through to the end of the year, and perhaps further into the new year than I'd expect.

Driver: Taylormade SLDR 430 TP (10* JDM head) w/ Matrix VLCT ST 60T LT, plays around 44", neutral hosel and sliding weight setting
Fairway: Taylormade Jetspeed (14*) w/ Diamana S+ 70 X, plays around 43"
Hybrid 1: Titleist 816H1 (19*) w/ Fujikura Motore Speeder Tour Spec 8.8 S, standard length and A1 hosel
Hybrid 2: Taylormade Jetspeed (25*) w/ UST Axivcore Black 85 S
Irons: Mizuno MP15 (5), MP4 (6-PW) w/ KBS C Taper Lite X, standard specs
Wedges: Mizono MP-T4 (50, 54), MP-R12 (58) w/ KBS Tour S
Putter: Odyssey White Damascus #9, plays 34"
Bag: Srixon Waterproof stand bag

Only changes I may do before the end of the year are new grips on the irons (I'm not OCD enough to be fussed about the mismatched 8 iron). Plus I bought a 58* MP-T4 with a DG wedge shaft so may switch shafts with the MP-R12.

Nice bag.  I like the look of the #9 style putter, just can not putt well with them.  Although I may have to give mine a try again!

I've gone away and come back to them often enough. But I was putting awfully with any number of Anser style putters over the past few months (Nike Method 001, Rife Iconic, Yes Callie-f, to name a few) and just felt like a change.

Found this #9 and liked the White Damascus look, plus there was a 15% off eBay code readily available so that made the decision a bit easier.

Hi KJ, many years a go we played 9 holes together at the old Ashlar golf course. I lost count how many times your bag has changed since. I hadn't seen any posts from you for a while so good to see a bag update. Take care.

With a full swing it's probably around 140 PW, 125 50*, 110-115 54* and 100 58*...give or take a few yards. I picked the wedges up separately from the irons, but am pretty comfortable with the setup as is in terms of the shafts in the wedges.

Pretty solid, mid sort of trajectory. I tried the standard C Tapers a few years ago (soft stepped X) and couldn't handle them...but these are really smooth and easy to load.
