I was thinking it wouldn't be a bad idea to have a back-up set of clubs, at least irons, but are they needed? How many sets do you own? Currently I have what's in my sig below.... thinking of adding a "back-up" set.
How many sets.....

I have seven sets, I need to unload two & already have buyers. I put to much thought into golf. I figured I need a set for wet weather( Hybrids & Hi-bounce wedges) an everyday set (regular irons & medium-bounce wedges) and a dry set (blades and low-bounce wedges) The other two sets are for visitors and traveling.
I was hoping to hear the responses I got... I recently got my Muzino's (fathers day gift) and love them! I sold my old irons right away, TaylorMade 2.0's, and then I got to thinking... maybe I should have kept them for a back-up. Then that thought turned into maybe I need to buy a used set as back-ups! My wife thanks you!
Now what about putters.... lol
Two sets of clubs is the way to go.... I use my "A" set in the spring and summer when I play most of my golf. I use my "B" set in the fall and winter when conditions are not optimal including wet, windy, cold and numerous leaves from deciduous trees.
Having two sets is also fun and nostalgic. The irons in my "B" set are 20+ years old and bring back fond memories of days of yore. (I got them on my 10th wedding anniversary.)
