Slowing building a bag of the "best ever clubs I've ever played"

Getting a set of Clean Mizuno MP53 were quite the challenge - especially 3-PW with S300 and no browning.  Got lucky after a few years and finally found a set locally.  

SM2 were easier to find as ive played these all year and have a few extra 60s lying around.

My current Newport is my best putter ever.

All I need now is a G15 driver with a Blueboard although my Current M2 with a Tour AD is quite the driver
Next is 910 FD with a blueboard and a 909H with a S300 and I'll be all set.


MP53s and Wedges have New Grips tonight, Loft and Lies all reset and Even through on some new shaft bands...... Going low tomorrow!

Nice set

Only thing I would change is the 3 wood to a TEE CB4 and the driver to a superdeep.

Haha Kevin, I once bought your G15 with Blueboard back then ( or maybe it was a Rapture V2 with Blueboard  ) and you ended up buying it back from me, just like that set of NOS SM2 you parted with a few months ago to me.  You are Da Man !   Great to see you are assembling a nostalgia bag of your best-ever clubs.

I love this bag enough to sell everything else

There is no doubt I’ll buy the ts2 and ts2 4 wood but irons and wedges are locked in for the rest of the year and possibly next season as well

Such a cool concept, the nostalgia makes me want to try this sometimes. I think Id have to go back to 2004 with the G2 woods and i3+ Blades for mine though.

Very cool, I gotta do this. Same irons and hybrid. MP53 4-8i, MP68 9i-pw, 910D3, hibore xls 3 wood, 909h, MPT11 wedges. Still have all these clubs. Wedges are beat to hell, especially the 56, so might need to cheat on that one with something newer.

If I wanted to play a nostalgia bag, all I'd have to do is go out to the garage and assemble it from all the clubs I have never sold.  Obviously I need to "thin the herd" a bit.

Titleist 917D3 w/YS-6+
T.E.E. EX9 Tour 15* with YS-6+
Titleist 909h 17* and 21* w/YS-hybrid

Adams XTD Forged 6 (28*) - PW (48*) w/Aldila RIP Tour 115 (bent to 5* loft gaps)
Vokey SM4 TVD 50M w/Aldila RIP Tour 115
Vokey SM6 56S w/Aldila RIP Tour 115

That's amazing. Lovely clubs. Too many people including myself are to quick to say hey I need a new set of clubs this season. I have a set of MP-69s which are in MINT condition. And toy'd with the thought of parting with them but I see posts like yours and say nah no way these clubs are better than half the sets they bring out nowadays and I love people looking at them trying to figure out what they are if they aren't the latest.
