I still have them in my bag and was wondering if other SandTrap members did
Anyone still playing with the Titleist Dci 990 irons?

Where? I want them.
I play a set of clones and people who play 990's can't tell the difference until they get close, and they play the same.
I'll post pics.... I love'em.
No, but I still play the DCI 961s. Own multiple sets because I love them. I know technology has progressed and I have tried the latest from TM, T, M, etc.. but fine with what I have. I recently got paired with a scratch, probably plus handicap and he was playing the same set. Said to me exactly what I was thinking - yeah, they're ancient, I should upgrade, but they're working for me. The money I would spend on new irons all go to lessons.
The 990s would be an "upgrade" for me, ha ha.
I dreamed about a set of these irons back in the 90's when they first came out and I was playing in high school. Neither I nor my parents could afford them at the time. Recently (the past year) I've picked up golf again pretty regular and just scored a set from the local craigslist for a good price. In the process of re-gripping them now. Can't wait to play with them more. In the one round I played them before removing the grips, I hit more good, solid shots than I have in the past year with my old king cobra oversize clubs. Definitely not for beginners, but if you can make solid contact then they are fantastic.
