Oh this should be fun...

You sir, decided to go with an iron fitting last year over the rest of your bag, because at the time your irons were the oldest in your bag and needed an upgrade, bad! I would say you've been playing for a long time, hence the Nike fairway woods still in your bag. You hit them well and figure why get rid of them if they still find fairways on tight Par 4's! If I didn't think the RTX 3's didn't look so thick on the toppling at address, I would still be gaming Cleveland wedges. So my guess is you've been a Cleveland wedge guy from the start. I mean, who doesn't love a Roger Cleveland designed wedge?! (I game MD4's) All around, a very solid bag and I honestly have no issues with it! Would love to play a round with you to see how they treat you! My handicap assumption for you would be between 8-14, which is probably on the high side. Hope I didn't offend you! Hit 'em straight!

Now:

I'm kind of in the same boat as a lot of people where I'm in the middle of my offseason (damn So. Dakota winters) and tinkering with a few different options before the frost lifts. It doesn't (or it does) help that I work in a golf retail store where I have unlimited access to GC2's and GCQuad's :)

My bag is as follows:

Golf Bag - Sun Mountain Sync Cart Bag
Driver - Callaway Rogue SubZero 9* w/ Project X HZRDUS Yellow 6.5 76g (will stay in the bag for 2019)

Fairway woods may be switched out during the season & pending courses played/conditions:
3 Wood - Callaway Rogue 15* w/ Project X EvenFlow 6.5 65g
4 Wood - Callaway Rogue 17* w/ Graphite Design AD GP 8x

Utility - Srixon U65 20* w/ Graphite Design AD DI 95x (will stay in the bag for 2019)

Now, with working in a golf retail store, I am blessed to be on a Staff Program with Mizuno. So manufacturers/companies allow FT employees a choice to go with one manufacturer to have a new set, built to your specs, for a year. At the end, you can either buy them with your PUD, or send them back. Really, it's a win-win for someone like me who doesn't want to beat up another set of mine. So I'm putting the JPX 919 Tour's in the bag to begin with and to toy around with. They could get replaced, but I'm excited to try these out.
Irons - Mizuno JPX 919 Tour 4-PW w/ Dynamic Gold X100 - +.5", 2* up
Irons - Cobra King Pro CB/MB w/ Dynamic Gold X7 Tour - 3*-3.5* up

Wedges - Callaway Mack Daddy 4's 52*S/56*S/60*C w/ True Temper X100 Black Onyx Tour - +.25", 2* up (Will stay in bag for 2019)
Putter - Odyssey 3T (Will stay in bag for 2019)
Ball - Taylormade TP5 (Will stay in bag for 2019)

I'm a ho and tinkerer, so I have about 2.5-3 full sets in my garage. Hopefully the above are the only things I tinker with in 2019, but it wouldn't surprise me if I get another shaft or two to try out in my woods!

You sir, hit the nail on the head. The irons just went in the bag as I was gaming JPX825 Pros for the last 6 years with the wrong shafts in them. The Nike 3W I am never taking out of the bag as I hit it 240 and straight damn near every time. The 3H was slated for the bin but I reshafted it when I replaced my irons and now its a weapon again. The wedges are not my favorite but get the job done for now. I've been playing for 20 years (since I was 12) and play off a 9.5 but probably should be lower. Props to you on the bang on analysis.

I'm sure I could give a pretty accurate assessment of your golf game but I don't think it's from reading your WITB.

My guess is you are single digit handicap, you don't like Taylor Made, Ping and Callaway but you love Titleist traditional looking clubs.  You've done your research and even though you can have the latest gear, you play what works.  It took you sometime to put the bag together but are happy with it now.  Although you like certain club designs, you believe that the shafts are more important.

Long ball hitter but focused on accuracy.

Congratulations on your first post and sorry if I'm way off.

Actually that is pretty spot on :-)

Play off 3 or 4 depending on course, would take something special special to take Titleist irons out of my hands, previous set was 735 CM which I loved! Have played vokey wedges for a long time now, and don't intend on changing anytime soon. Bag definitely only changes slowly, play with what works, although the putter has gone through many iterations. I am about to add a GAPR Lo 2 in the coming weeks, probably plays into the wanting more accuracy off the tee comment :-) I am a fan of the TM drivers, less so the fairway woods.

My guess is that you're a 5 or less (although it's listed by your name as 3.1). You hit the ball a mile with that smaller D3 head and that low spin x-stiff shaft. You have an older club that you have no intention of getting rid of because it works.. In fact, that V steel 3-wood is an all time favorite (by many) and may never leave that bag. You like consistency, hence playing the same shafts in your irons and wedges (excellent shafts BTW). You finally updated your wedges last year to the SM7s but are realizing they feel no different than the previous SM models. Oh, and something tells me that there is a driving iron in your near future!
