Steel shafts don't hurt my back or joints but make my hands swell....without fail.

Right now, I'm going with 

one Mitsubishi MiDi Proto graphite      [driver]

two Aldila Pro Blue 75 graphites          [fairway woods]

ten Mitsubishi Kuro Cage TiNi 85 graphites            [driving iron, 5-GW, 56, 60]

and one HICKORY         [putter],

so there's no steel at all on the stick portions.

Putter steel shafts don't hurt me at all, however.  I don't need  hickory on the putter....obviously.

LOL if I have to go the hickory shaft putter route I can cover it I have a Ottey Chrisman hickory shafted Calamity Jane style blade one

I always cast a suspicious eye when I play with someone who has only one brand (like SIM driver, TM irons, wedges and who cares about the putter but someone who just buys all one brand smells like someone who got the shim-sham from a big box store sales guy).

I read, I believe on MGS, a long time ago the philosophy I've always ascribed too when I've played my best.  No one brand has all the right answers for anyones game.  I've currently got 4 brands represented but that can fluctuate in all honesty because I do switch out clubs frequently.  There was a time recently from top to bottom I went with Callaway clubs.  Woods, irons, wedges and odd putter.  That was a forced set make up and honestly it hurt my game overall.  

In the end, clubs are tools.  You gotta have the right tool to be able to score your best.  That's what I've gone back too and my scores are reflective of that now as well. 

Currently, the number is six:

  Tour Edge (driver, 4-wood and 6-PW irons)

  Titleist (3-wood and one Vokey wedge)

  Sub 70 (two hybrids and 50* wedge)

  Callaway (7-wood)

  Cleveland (RTX ZipCore 54* wedge)

  Odyssey (putter)

Soon, it will increase to seven, since I am planning to replace the Tour Edge Exotics driver with a TaylorMade SIM2 driver that I just acquired.

If you add up the number of clubs in my summary above, you will come up with 15. That is because I alternate between the Titleist TS2 3-wood and the Tour Edge Exotics 4-wood.

For years, I was strictly a Taylormade guy.  Blind loyalty, but the SLDR woods disappointed me, so I started to look around.  My most recent purchases are the Srixon ZX fairway and Cobra RADSpeed hybrid are a direct result of the reviews on MyGolfSpy.  I probably never would have even considered them - but I included them in my club testing (on a launch monitor) and love them both!  Today I'm brand agnostic - what ever performs the best, regardless of the name on them.

My current set-up looks like:

Taylormade Sim2 Driver & M-6 Irons (Had Mizuno JPX-900's, was a good fit for me, swapped them out with TM M-6's)

Srixon ZX fairway

Cobra RADSpeed Hybrid

Mizuno MP-T7 Wedges

Driver and hybrid -- TaylorMade

3W -- old Callaway, might be due for an upgrade but the XHot is a beast

iron set - Mizuno 

long iron, wedges and putter -- Titleist

Love mixing the bag up and I have other clubs on the bench like PING putters, Callaway drivers, back up set of Mizuno irons, etc...   Growing up seemed like everything really needed to be matched up so it is great to see what everyone likes and that many of the pros are not locked down to play a full bag per a contract.

Taylor Made M5 9 loft

Callaway XHot 14.5 loft

Taylor Made SIM 3 Hybrid 19 loft

Titleist T-MB 716 4 iron

By season's end, I had completed my first full bag overhaul since 2009.

My ball, bag, and twelve of my fifteen clubs are Titleists.

The driver, the weaker lofted fairway metal, and the putter are three different other brands.

For all intents and purposes, though, it's pretty much a Titleist set right now.

I had switched my bag make up a couple times over the season but changed wedges due to a Black Friday sale. Got a 52 and 58 Jaws. They are great wedges especially since they had the grinds I wanted.
