I have been playing with an iron set consisting of 7 and 8 single length Cobra F9 and 9,10,11 Honma. My wedges are a 52 Cobra or a 54 Cleveland and a 56 single length Cobra. Ping G410 driver and 5 wood and a Cobra 7 wood Ping 5 crossover and Ping G410 6 hybrid. Anyone else with a mixed up set like mine? Any other comments or suggestions?

Nothing wrong with a mixed bag.  I play a pretty mixed bag myself.  I play what I like and works for me.  I used to play 4 wedges, but I dropped a a wedge and added in a 7w.  For me, it's just easier to finesse a wedge than it is to finesse a longer approach shot.  With partial wedges, I seem to be able to keep the spin on the ball, but with a partial long approach shot the ball will just fly lower and with less spin, defeating the whole purpose.  My PW is 48*, so I went 48-54-60 and added the high launch/high spin 7w.  This allows me more options for long par 3's and long approach shots into long par 4's or par 5 green lights.  Here is my bag:

Driver: Callaway Epic Flash set at 8*

3w: Callaway Epic Flash Sub Zero set at 14*

5w: Callaway Epic Flash Sub Zero at 18*

7w: Nike NDS 21* (While it says it is a 5w, it operates as a 7w for me due to the shaft and higher loft.  Nice, high-spinning long approach shots).

4h: Nike Vapor Speed 23*

5i-PW: Taylormade R9 TP Forged (Japan).  I have a back up set of Nike VR TW Forged v10 irons as well.

54* and 60*: Titleist Vokey SM7 both 8* bounce and M grind

Putter: Titleist Scotty Cameron Prototype Studio Stainless center shaft.  I have a back up Seemore sb1 as well.

Ball: I'll use a Titleist ProV1 or X in yellow or use the PRACTICE version.

Nice set.  I have a pretty mixed bag myself; see my signature section.  Ping driver, TourEdge 3-wood, TM hybrids, Titleist irons, Cleveland wedges, TM putter.  I love each club and feel comfortable with them, so if you feel the same, nothing wrong in a mixed bag.  Not sure about using 2 different sets in the irons though, unless the feel is seamless.

Whatever works man. Even if you play best with a different brand for each club (unlikely I think, but you never know), then go for it. It's all about what you can hit the best and most consistent. 

Driver: Ping G400 LST
4 wood: something I found in my grandpa's shed 
3h: Ping Rapture (from Play It Again Sports)
4h: Callaway RAZR (from eBay)
5-G: P790s
SW: Taylormade Milled Grind
LW: Cleveland RTX3
Putter: Ping Karsten TR 2
