Surprisingly, a Honma TW-Forged #3 driving iron (secondhand), then a Graphite Design Tour AD GT 6X for an old V-steel 4w I had.

Edit: I say surprisingly, because I was pretty happy with my Honma TW-U #3 utility, but the price on the newer model was too good to pass up. Better feel too.

Also, this came on Jan 2nd, though I ordered and paid for it online before the end of last year:

Just bought the 54* Mizuno S18 wedge to match the 60* I got for Christmas.  I’m not a huge fan of changing wedge brands, but these are miles better than the Callaway’s they’re replacing.

Fairway:  Callaway Epic - 16*, 21*, 24*
Irons:       TaylorMade M CGB 6-AW
Wedges:  Mizuno S-18: 54*, 59*
                 Callaway PM Grind  64*
Putter:      Odyssey O-Works Black 2MCS

I might regrip this winter, but so far I've got enough freebies for Christmas (balls, new driver shaft).  Also apparently won a Cleveland (TFI 2135) putter in one of the WRX giveaway threads.

I probably won't have to buy anything, outside of membership dues and perhaps some Trackman time with the new driver shaft (Aldila Tour Green 70X, playing at 44").

Maybe a fairway wood. Either a Titleist or a Cobra F7 to line up more with my driver and hybrid. Other than that I am 100% happy with my bag, which is unusual. Definitely going to regrip everything in the bag though.

Found a decent price on a couple dozen yellow AVX balls, looking for them to arrive soon.

After years of saying I'd never found anything that works better than a ProV1x for my game I'll be darned if I didn't try a sleeve of the AVX and get hooked like a trout! Leave it to me to start Jonesing for the only ball out there more expensive than a ProV...
Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

Ordered it in 2017 but picked it up and paid for it yesterday so technically it's the first... 716 AP2 3 iron to finish off my set, which is awesome cause I had it out today and apparently I can't hit it.  Good start to 2018!!!

New years night I ordered some shafts - FST 90 to replace my stock T-step 90's on my R7's. These cheap ($9) performing shaft are similar to TaylorMade ones. In fact, FST supplies TM with shaft the last couple years.

Also ordered on the same night, XE1 65* wedge... I was just curious when I saw the C3i commercial... For far less cheaper, the XE1 would be fun to sample with before It goes on Ebay.....or sell it to a friend. But you never know, if this works, it'll stay in the bag.....
