Golf clubs is supposed to be a tool to get things done, not a fashion statement that needs to be matched . I can careless how my golf clubs looks or if they are not a matched set.
I do, keep them clean and functional. Hate those kept dried up bits of grass and dirt in the grooves and the grips smell like kitchen towel.

Have never liked Vokey wedges,vastly over-priced,WS JPII 55 as good as anything made today and similarly with putters,am 100% with previous poster on Ping Anser although have just returned to an old,gun-blue Scotty,the one that looks like a...err...Ping Anser.
The first tee on Seniors morning always reminds me of 'Wagon Train',a long line of electric trolleys mounted with enormous tour bags stuffed with the obligatory fourteen clubs,half of which either cannot or will not be used.

I've been doing this for 17 years. My drivers and fairway woods have tended to more modern, but the irons and wedges considerably less so. A lot of Golden Rams, Tom Watson and Troon Grind wedges, and so on. Was pretty good out of sand with the Troon Grinds until I learned how tough they're supposed to be in sand. LOL
I'm starting to wonder if some folks are just destined to hit such clubs better. I switched to Golden Rams from Tour Edge CBs as an 18-20 hdcp and played better with the Rams. I was told I had no business making such a switch, but every time I grabbed a blade, I hit it better than my own irons.
In my case, I turned out to be a better long iron player than short iron player. In those early years of Ram use, it's not an exaggeration to say I had a better chance of hitting a green with a 4 iron in my hand than with an 8 iron. Could be part of the puzzle? <shrug>

Even if we belong to a facility that has companies come in and do demo/fitting days, they are going to try to fit you into THEIR latest and greatest clubs.
