I meant to add that the "technology" really hasn't changed much in the last 20 years. Perimeter weighting and low COG has been around for a long time. A good swing is far more important than $1000 clubs, or, as they say, it's the Indian and not the arrow.
I had a lesson with Ted Fort a few months ago and, after doing my usual garbage, I handed him my Ping 8 iron, which he smashed 160 yards on a rope. So I know if I hit a crap shot with my Pings, it ain't the clubs!
No need to be in too much of a rush, There are people that have been playing for years that still not quite on the "right path". EVERY tour pro still struggles sometimes.
Take your next lesson as soon as you can and talk to the instructor about all your concerns.
