... Honestly I don't know why any serious golfer plays steel in their irons considering the graphite iron shafts that are available today. Posted this before but I started with 130gm NV Tour shafts that had 1.5* of torque and were better than DGS300's in every way. Next I played NV Pro 105's and loved them. VS Proto 100's were even better for my swing so I tried the VS Proto 85's and they were just too light for me. I have found 95gms is my limit and obviously that is the #1 weight played on all the tours. There is just something to fit every swing and with less wear and tear on your joints as well as a kick point/torque with a dampened feel that still provides plenty of feedback, I just think graphite iron shafts are a no brainer if you play and/or practice a couple times a week. I took a chance on the Kuro Kage Tini 105 gm shafts that came with my T100-S but I absolutely love them. 

... That said, 120 gms to 80-90 gms is a pretty big jump. But you demo so many different irons I imagine you have a feel for what works for you as far as weight is concerned. 👍

After years of playing telephone poles, I was enlightened by the feel offered by the Nippon Modus line. I agree with your thoughts on graphite and like the idea of switching over in a decade when I hit my 50’s. 
 

It has more to do with making it easier on the body and having fun. Let the club do the work without hurting you. I can get behind that logic.

I have six more months until I hit 50, but I think it's time for graphite in the irons for me.  My back is generally not happy with me at the end of a round.  The experiment starts soon.

Usually once or twice a season I get a hankering for some Pings irons, G25 or G30. Why? I don't particularly know. Probably due to their reputation and how long they stay in people's bags. 

I also really want to see if I can get my son to say he wants new irons so I can take my D200s back from him 🤣

I embrace the idea of evolving into something that makes life easier. Anything to save those joints is good by me. Good luck 😊

Besides all the Cobra gear (pleeeassee can I get a shipping notification today?!) I’m thinking about picking one of these or a Bagboy/Clicgear comparable.

I have the Caddytek and it has served me well these past 2-3 years but the foot brake is kinda lame. Wish it had a hand brake like the Clicgears, much less cumbersome to use. Other than that, and a bolt coming loose, I'm pretty happy with it.

I'm having a crisis of sorts, I want to buy something in a bad way but don't know what. I've been thinking wedges, 5 wood, hitting net, launch monitor, planemate, just to name a few things. Can't buy them all, but I'm going nuts thinking about stuff. I'll figure something out, but I just had to vent to people that would understand. I can list the why's and why nots of everything and I'm over thinking it.

The planemate is definitely up there, I've noticed a bit of an over the top move I need to get rid of and think from reading the reviews here on the site it might help. I really appreciate the advice!

What are we talking club wise? Vintage or modern? Planemate is up there for sure.

Still thinking about the new Cobra King Utility Iron. It just looks so good, and I feel like a utility 4-iron would be the perfect safe-off-the-tee club for my bag. The problem is I would probably end up with back issues if I got it since the couch isn't particularly good for sleeping on.

Modern, I'm needing something in my gamer bag on the top end that's a little more consistent than my 3 wood. I love it, but we have days we don't get along. I saw some Cobra F8's on sale the other day and it got me thinking.

That can be the downside to new clubs.  When I got to swing some of the Cobra stuff for the #COBRACONNECT CHALLENGE it was like a week before that was announced... but after seeing the Forged Tec's 4 iron I have to imagine the utility iron is just about perfect.  I'm personally more of a hybrid guy at that spot, but it seems like its a good blend of help while maintaining a smallish footprint.  

Perhaps you should order the Utility and a memory foam pad for the couch at the same time and really treat yourself right? 😂

I can't say enough about my love for the 5-wood.  I seriously doubt I'm losing any distance off the tee with it compared to a 3-wood.  I've hit the g30 5-wood 14 times since I started using Arccos and my smart distance is 241 yards with a long of 261 (I actually outdrove @Lacassem's driver on that one 😉 ).  I'm positive that a 3-wood would not be nearly as good for me.  I tend to hit them very low and they're useless outside of the teebox for me.  

I hit a friends F8 fairway before too... damn good feeling club.
