Have them and every now and then a group I play with play a round where we have to use old clubs just for fun. We even try to use old balls. I still have a dozen Balata Z - not that old-old but still makes a difference. Love the feel of blades and the old Wilson Persimmon Woods.

I do from time to time.  Its fun to break out the persimmons and the blades.  IMO, the persimmons don't work as well with today's golf balls because they don't spin enough but they still work.

You should really give it a try, I think you might enjoy it. I bought my older bladed irons at a thrift store for $18 and that got me a set of Wilson Staff Fluid Feel 2-PW. I'm going to say I got super lucky to find them and they were in great condition after some cleaning up. My persimmons I got from @deejaid and still need to get out with them some more to get used to them. 

As for balls, I've heard Wilson Zips are good for use with persimmons and I have a double dozen of them in the car. I also believe that the Bridgestone for balls can work well with them, I think I might have read that on the Powered by Persimmon blog that deejaid runs. 

All I can say is go for it!

I play nearly modern, 70-80"s vintage and hickory shafted clubs from the 30's. Have to admit the vintage and hickory clubs bring the biggest smiles to my face. Key to enjoyment (at least for me) is to make sure to select tees that match the appropriate distance for these clubs as well as older traditional courses where the game is more along the ground as compared to newer courses which require high shots carried over hazards.

Just an older guy with 8 or 9 clubs and a MacKenzie Walker bag.

Raises hand. My current gamers are AP 2's but I sometimes play with MP 14s. Come to think of it, are they even vintage?

Well I think the AP2's came out around 2008... and MP 14's (1994-1998). Maybe the MP 14's?  Call me antique 😀 but my idea of vintage is 70's/80's (when I learned to play).............. I guess it shows my age. I can see how some would call AP2's vintage. Wow, I am am old.
