Hey, if you can knock down flags with those perimeter weighted MP-32s, you probably could do the same with 1950s era gear. You might need a club or two extra, but it's not a different game. Try it - if you can find something that meets your stringent shaft and grip criteria.

You're right, I shouldn't have said "modern." It doesn't go to the point I was trying to prove, it's actually irrelevant. Casting and "microscopic bubbles" do not affect the quality of a golf shot. At least I've never seen or read anything legitimate to the contrary.

haha, it was a joke but I agree with you about the casting process or forging not advancing much or if at all. i wouldnt mind using some older iron heads but I would want to change the shaft and grips on them to something modern though

A high kick or mid kick, low launch or mid launch steel shaft from 30 (or more) years ago will play pretty much the same as the equivalent modern steel shaft. I've got a set of Titleist Tour Models than are nearly 30 years old with TT Dynamic shafts-no big difference in feel or performance from an equivalent modern shaft.

Not to mention dozens of Pro V's and tees, 3pairs of golf shoes, gloves and the ridiculous green fees every week. This sport really adds up, no wonder why people think of it as an elite sport.

Is this how much it's "worth" or how much I spent on my stuff?

I think the OP was asking how much YOU spent, not the retail worth. So yeah, however much you personally spent.
