Who else plays old clubs? - Page 5

post #73 of 77
Though my driver and 4-wood are recent... I play 13 year old Tour Edge V-Blades... That I bought on eBay for $130 shipped... They were 2 deg flat when I got them but I had some adjustments made and they fit me now and honestly I don't think I will ever play a better iron... My wedges are TourEdge DG4 from the late 90s

I went to the range yesterday to work on a grip change.  For kicks I brought with me a couple of clubs from each of my past two sets of irons.  Bottom line?  New technology is good.  Older technology, not so much so.  I'm at a point now where I get to the range more than the course and I benefit from GI irons.  I once had a much lower index than I do now but with my lack of time I don't know where I'd be if I was hitting my old irons again.

I can honestly say I'm not "giving up" anything by playing the irons I play.  I gain trajectory control, consistent and predictable distance control, and easy workability to either side.  I play better with them, and I enjoy hitting them.  I have traveled a lot and rented modern "new technology" sets a lot and have played many different brands and types and to me nothing compares to my old Rams.  For me, they're timeless and the best irons on the planet for my game...so why change?  Woods and hybrid, I'm on the technology bandwagon.  I hit an 8.5* RBZ Driver that I can accomplish things with I could never do with an old persimmon with steel shaft.  Irons, I'm much more concerned with precision.  So what if I'm hitting a club with a 5 on the bottom rather than a 6...I can't see the number when I'm hitting the ball.

I have a late meeting scheduled for today, but if I get out in time I plan to play 9 with my "79 Wilson Staff Tour Blades and Joe Powell persimmon driver and 3 wood.
