I've hinted at it before and finally now I'll take the time to start this up. 

As many of us if not all of us I have an excess of clubs, some I likely won't ever use, some I just can't bring myself to sell for nastalgic reasons and others I found a great deal and price and will look to flip later.

I'm very fortunate to do a good bit of travelling so rather then bringing the main sticks and risk damage on airlines and travel I'm going forth and officially building a go with me back up bag. 

So far I have putter, wedges and irons all sorted. The rest will come together over the next few months 

Putter - Ping Sigma Tyne.... Was my favorite putter ever and still love it to bits, but the stroke lab simply is better. Thankfully it gets a second life here.

Wedges - Cobra Trusty Rusty Black Tour 52,56,60. Not my typical set up but with the irons this should make a good fit. I've always loved these wedges and rather then sitting and collecting dust they will now really get a chance to be nice and rusty!

Irons - Cobra Fly Z Pro. I had the amp cell pros before moving to a more suitable club. Almost immediately after selling them I missed them dearly. I had been in a lookout for a new set for a bargain and finally found a set in pretty good shape for all of $150 cad... Missing a pitching wedge and 4 iron but still can't wait to get back on a course with them.

My problem is frankly that I am a club ho. I have told others before I have so much stuff that I keep 6 playable sets assembled bag balls gloves tees and all. Just grab and go. But basically besides my signature set I keep assembled in my car for a walking and practice set the following which is a strictly vintage set up. I can practice vintage and still play my front line set which is 99% vintage anyhow.

Driver-- 1957 Macgregor Velocitized persimmon

4 wood 1957 Macgregor Velocitized persimmon

Irons 2 thru PW 1962 Macgregor FC-4000

SW-- 1963 Macgregor Toney Penna FC

Putter--- Green shaft Macgregor IM-5 ( reproduction)

Bag nylon old school Vagabond with Nike padded strap.

I can substitute any number of fairway woods and drivers both persimmon and metal and irons any number of vintage Macgregors---- But I can go somewhat modern on the irons if I substitute my MP-68s or 2013 Cally forged X.

My back up back lives at my in-laws holiday apartment.

I'll be taking a few recently replaced clubs next time I go to fill out the bag.

 

Driver - Nickent 4DX with Grafalloy Epic

3 and 5 Woods - TM Burner 08 with Grafalloy Epic

4 Hybrid - TM Rescue 09 with Grafalloy Epic

5-E (couldn't resist) Ben Hogan Apex Edge Pro with Hogan Apex 4 

50,54,58 Wedges - Cleveland CG15 Black Pearl Wedges

Putter - Ram Zebra 

Sun Mountain Sync Bag

 

The top end of the bag will be "new" for my back up bag, and are all clubs that I know I can use, unlike most of the clubs that they are replacing.

I picked up a set of Wilson Staff D7 irons(5 - PW). They are 3* stronger lofts so I am longer. Paired them with my Hogan Tk15 49*/53*/57* Wedges, Scotty Cameron Kombi putter, Tour Edge CBX119 22* Hybrid & PowerBilt 3W & 5W. As I just acquired PMookie’s old Shot Scope V2, I could not put them in my F8 Cobra Fairway woods without changing grips, so I chose the PowerBilts which are 12 years old.

So far, I like the D7’s, but the Cobra’s are in my closet, making them my “backup bag”.

@fozcycle, do you feel you gained something over the cobra's other than length? with the Wilson's being 3* stronger, You could tweak the cobra's. or do you just feel more comfortable with the wilsons? I also have a set of Wilson D300's and I feel the Cobra's are  much better clubs for me.. But I have kept the Wilson's as a back up set..

Lots but arrowtown in New Zealand may be number 1. Waimari is another great course in NZ. Can't forget Templeton in Christchurch and finally the rise in Vernon BC. So many great courses and so many more to explore. Scotland trip is up next.
