Driver: Adams Fast 12 LS, 8.5 degree stiff Fubuki. A great head, even set to 7.5 I've been able to hit it nice and high. Could use a new shaft, as I overpower the Fubuki a bit, but I believe this head will last me a couple years. Got it for half the price of a new driver when they released the speedline super LS. I'll be using this one to hit a bunch of 300 yarders this season, once our courses get some roll in the spring. Underrated head, IMO.
3W: 13.5 degree Mizuno MP650, stiff. A very anti left club, hard to get off the deck, still working on finding the right ball position and setup. But off the tee it's got a lot of speed and not too much spin, due to the titanium face. I don't see this replacing my driver on tight tee shots, but it's sure got the firepower to position me on a very difficult line to reach with my hybrid. And it's about as long off the deck as any club I could get on solid hits. Got it for similarly cheap as I did my others for the season. Needs a bit more shaft, especially in terms of weight.
Hybrid: 17 degree Adams super SS, stiff. A great club off the deck and very easy to hit off the tee. Picked it up as they released the new ones and got about half price. I need a bit more shaft to get the flight flattened, but it's pretty straight. Very forgiving, it's a great club for a stress free tee shot.
Irons: I've been accruing a set of Maltby TE irons with soft stepped X flex C tapers in them, and I look to finish my set with the 4, 6, and 8 irons this spring. They are about as good as money can buy, I can get plenty of height from the C tapers and they feel absolutely great. They also seem to keep the ball really straight, even though I feel I'm cutting the ball a lot I hit about a 2-5 yard pull fade with my 7 iron. Very consistent. Hard to tell how the ball will react on greens, but the height would seem to indicate I'll get plenty of check, even on my longer irons. I'll be looking to match the feel of my other clubs to these when I reshaft.
Ball: B330, I've switched from gamers this year and I like the performance around the greens. Haven't seen the flight on my long clubs yet, but I expect to be happy with them as long as I don't lose or shred too many. Perfect off the putter for me.

I've been playing a Ping G5 driver (9°, regular flex) for the past few years. I thought that I would upgrade this winter, but as hard as it is to believe, I have won THREE drivers since last October. First, I won a TaylorMade Burner SuperFast 2.0 (10.5°, regular flex) at a banquet as a door prize. Then I won a TaylorMade R11 (10.5°, regular flex) from a golf website contest. Finally, I won a TaylorMade RocketBallz (9.5°, stiff shaft) at the Pittsburgh Golf Show. When it rains, it pours! I will give each of them a try-out, and then probably give one of them to my golfing buddy who is also looking for a driver.
I actually have four complete sets of golf clubs in my repertoire. One that I use from April to October, and a second that I use from October to April. The other two sets I call "guest bags" for relatives who come into town and don't bring a set of clubs to play. I do pull those sets out of the basement dungeon once or twice a year, just so they can see the light of day. The basic clubs that I use are in my signature.
I rotate four different putters in and out of the bag that I am using, (Ping B60 and Anser 2, Odyssey XG #9 and White Steel 2-Ball), and this year I have gone back to a traditional right-hand low style after playing the last 15 years cross-handed (left-hand low). In addition, I put a jumbo putter grip on the Anser 2, and have been trying the "claw" grip, similar to what Phil Mickelson is currently using. Maybe one day I'll figure it out.
I am looking at a new driver but besides that everything should be the same.
