Great topic, three clubs come to mind…

1) Titleist 680 iron set, even though these were blades and I couldn’t hit them consistently they always felt and looked pure.

2) Scotty Cameron Newport putter, first Scotty and club I competed with during junior college golf.

3) Scotty cameron futura, belly length putter. Just looked and felt good to play.

I had a PXG Mustang Putter - 1st Gen - jet black.  It was the closest thing to automatic that I've ever gamed.  

I took it on a trip to the Sea Island Resort where it, along with my entire bag, was stolen by one of the attendants/valets.  Sea Island replaced the putter, but it didn't have the same magic.  I'm still bitter.

Mine has gotta be the first Scotty I purchased, Pro Platinum Laguna.  I started collecting putters a few years later and started using a SC Studio Stainless and let a junior I took under my wing use my Laguna it.  He played great with it and then had all of his club stolen out of his car about a year or 2 later.  I think I was more heart broken than him.

Jereez, too may to mention far touch tinkering over the years!

For me Macgregor VIP V-foil 1025cm Irons, nothing since has come close! Wish I could find a mint set somewhere, did see a set of new heads on the bay of e! For £800  more than I paid for them in 2004!

I had a set of those. A terrific set of irons. eBay had some in really good shape for $280

actually none.....  as I have kept all my old clubs.

That said,  my favorite driver was a Titleist 975D.

but I am a lot older now and use the larger head... 915D2

My fav irons were Ping eye 2 berylliums.... that I still use 🙂

I have changed putters from Hogan to slotline to currently Odyssey two ball.

I built a Golfsmith 3 wood around 1990.  It was a Kevlar head with a steel shaft that was short by today's standards.  I actually don't know what happened to the club.  I suspect it left along with my Ping Eye 2 irons when I was burglarized around 2000.
 
I was fairly new to golf so I thought it was normal to hit it 270 and straight off the tee all day.  I play the same course using modern drivers and balls but it is rare to have drives that are consistently as long or straight as that 3 wood produced.

Palmer Precision wood wood set. So if one club, the driver, loved that thing. Fiberglass shafts were just coming out and I let a friend talk me into putting them in the woods. Went from a push draw that was long and reliable to...%$#@**&

 

sold them for more than I paid for them because of the shafts but still, wish I had had that club until I got the original Bertha. Still have that Bertha. Still dead straight but have to move up a tee. Think it's the shaft. Wonder if I should put a more modern shaft in there. So much fun.

Driver: Callaway Epic 9 degree, stiff (set at 10 degrees with the movable weight in the center}

FW: Callaway Epic 3,5, heaven wood w/ regular shaft (driver shaft in 3 wood, 3 wood shaft in 5 wood, 5 wood shaft in heaven wood, all three set at neutral plus 1 degree)

Hybrids: Callaway BB19 4,6,7 (4 set at neutral plus 1 degree and 6 and 7 set at neutral minus 1 degree for gapping purposes)

Irons: Callaway Rogue ST Max 8, 9, PW 

Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM6 50,54,58

Ball: Titleist Pro V1, 1X, Vice Pro Plus or anything I find that day and try out for the fun of it (I haven't bought balls with my own money in at least 10 years)

I gave my son my Cobra Trusty Rusty tri-bounce gap wedge.  I had a lot of confidence with that wedge and threw a lot of darts to the pin.  I could probably borrow it out of his bag...but that might be bad form.

Wow here's a man after my own heart - I had that combo of the 975D and Eye 2's - mine weren't copper though - played a ton of good golf with them.  I added a tight lies and Eye 2 5 wood (real wood) to round out the set - putter's changed quicker than you can say Jack Robinson so not enough space to record those here nor can I remember all of them.  

 

Interestingly I have only gamed two putters in the last 16 years - while I've had tons of iron sets and drivers, how things change. 🙂

Taylor Made Stealth 2 10.5 Diamana S plus 60  Aldila  R flex   - 42.25 inches 

SMT 4 wood bassara R flex, four wood head, 3 wood shaft

Ping G410 7, 9 wood  Alta 65 R flex

Srixon ZX5 MK II  5-GW - UST recoil Dart 65 R flex

India 52,56 (60 pending)  UST recoil 75's R flex  

Evon roll ER 5 32 inches

It's our offseason so auditioning candidates - looking for that right mix of low spin long, more spin around the greens - TBD

If I had sold my 1997 Spalding Top Flite Titanium Intimidator 400 fairway woods,

I'd have never been able to put them back in the bag where they are now.

The 9-wood, stamped as 29°, can take one all the way down to a modern, GI model 8-iron! The latter are down to about 33° now, right? 

I've also got the 7 at 25°,

the 5 at 21°,

and the 3 at 16°. 

The 3 can be replaced by something more modern for maximum distance from the Hail Mary fairway club.

The 5, 7, and 9, however, are still money a quarter century later.

I'm not even thinking of replacing them.

I'm screwed if a shaft breaks, however, because the Fenwick shafts are a non-standard diameter tip and no longer available.

Any club I ever got rid of I got rid of and never regretted getting rid of it. No regrets--- May be the reason I own close to 1000 individual clubs. Now I am thinning the herd some and some I have not hit so a no brainer there if I cannot hit them.
