I still have some W/S dyna powered that I learned on.  They were old when I got handed them down 25 years ago.

I know NOTHING about them except that they say "staff model"  Thinking about getting them restored.  Do y'all think it's worth it?  Were they anything special?

run of the mill driver with stock shaft
a couple of outdated hybrids
shovel-ier shovels
wedges from same shovel company
some putter with a dead insert and
a hideous grip

I have a set of Maxfli Revolutions that are a constant threat to kick my G15's out of the bag. Such a sweet club. Nothing I've ever hit has come close.

PING ISI's for me!!!!!!  Everytime I think about a new set, I hit these really well and the feeling of needing a new set goes away!

I'm still playing the ISI's I bought new when they came out. I'm tempted at times to upgrade to the latest and greatest, but then I tell myself I'd be better off spending the money to improve my swing.

I just hit some nickel ISI's along side my G15's at the range last week.  Surprisingly, the ISI's went just as far, almost as forgiving and felt almost as good as the G15's.  Granted, they were hit off a mat, but still.  Mishits were felt alittle more, but pured shots felt like butter.  Really starting to wonder which set will be in the bag to start the year....

I'm still playing my Lynx Parallax irons from 1993. I have replaced the shafts twice and stick with them because I hit them great and I know my distances with them.  I have bought at least 5 modern sets to try but I keep coming back to this set.
Nice,any pics?

I grew up playing Hogan Apex's from the 70's on....which thankfully I've saved all the models.  My favorite was the '94 channel back style, although I more recently played the '98 or 99 ones designed to commemorate Leonard's British Open win (not nearly as good...but nice looking).  After the Hogan's I played Henry Griffitts RDH II until 3 years ago.  I might have stuck with these had Henry Griffitts not discontinued the model and stopped supporting them.  I have Adams Idea Pro Black MB now...a blade but hardly old school :).

Still playing Hogan FTX but I don't consider them old school.  Just buttery smooth.  Enjoyed the nice pics in this thread.

I'm thinking about going to my old set of Titleist 962s and selling my X-forged until I can find some X-Protos. I always thought when I got the X-forged I was moving to more of a players iron. Now looking at them side by side I realize it was more of a lateral move.

Just wondering if anyone still prefers a set of irons that are older vs the modern tech clubs? In another post i have about some new callaway irons i mentioned that had had been playing HOGAN APEX PLUS irons for quite a few years and love them. I'm actually thinking of finding another set in the best condition possible. wondering if anyone else has a older set of irons that they would prefer over the newer tech stuff. or if there is a set that they let get away that they wish they had back.


Hmm, seems to me it depends on what you consider modern. I've found a old set of COIN forged RAC, circa 03-04 I think that I'm reshafting. Really nice feeling set of irons, almost as buttery as my Mizuno's and work every bit as good as them also. Also have a old set of Wilson Staft Tour 78 blades 1-pw I'll pull out and play. If I really want to get nestalgic I have a set of persimmon woods and a set of 1964 MacGregor Tourney irons that are fun to break out once in awhile.

Rocking some TA 845's. I'm in college and on a budget so I really haven't moved to anything else. Solid sticks, the long irons can be a bit harsh, but everything else plays solid.

Would Maxfli black dot Rev's be considered old school? They are like that old sweatshirt you can't get rid of, but this could be the year. Like'n them i20's.

My current set:

Titleist 983E 8.5          NV65X
Mizuno MP-001 13        NV95X
Mizuno MP-001 16.5     NV95X
Mizuno Fli-Hi     20       NV105S
Founders Club 200 Blade 4-PW
Mizuno 55
Founders Club Defense 59
Ping Nickel Anser


If mid-90s vintage qualifies as old I'm playing some vintage.  The 983E has another contestant trying to replace it soon: a TEE CB4 NV65X.  There are plenty of newer drivers that haven't been able to do it yet.

I tried the I-20's, not even close. The Maxfli's have kicked the 5th set out of my bag (G15's) that I tried to replace them with. I think I'm going to quit trying. I scored a set of new, unused heads on eBay last week. When the current set wears out, I've got a backup!

How old are the MP32s, 6 or 7 years, maybe 8?   Not exactly "old" ...


I have a trusty set of 1980 Haig Ultras that I break-out occasionally to play a local par-3 course ... the heads are about the size of a peanut but they are fun to hit every once in a while.

I've been playing Adams GT2 irons since 2005. Before that I had the GT, before that the Tight Lies. They're all variations on the same thing, so basically I've been playing the same irons for 12 or 13 years. Haven't found anything else I like better so I stick to what works.
