How often do you change out individual clubs?

I have a few clubs in reserve in the instance that I have trouble with a certain club in my bag.  I was using a Nickent 4DX SW that I had been hitting well on occasion but inconsistently on others.  On a whim decided to take a Lynx LXW 56 degree (one degree more loft) that I had purchased at Golfsmith but hadn't hit it well at all.  As I'm still trying to get my swing back my consistency is a little suspect, but the first seven full wedges that I hit with the Lynx were solid and completely unexpected.  Next time that I'm on the course I'll be taking the Lynx and leaving the Nickent at home.  How often do you replace individual clubs or do you stick with what you have in the bag regardless of how they perform?

I have a few drivers (3 to be precise) and half dozen putters in the Garage.  I do swap these upon occasion depending upon the course I'm playing that day or how I have been playing lately.

I have 3 putters that I rotate through (I really like them all and don't like to stay away from them for long).  I'm really getting into clubbuilding so I think I'll probably start changing out clubs fairly often to test new builds.

i have 2 putters and 2 drivers that i swap alot. .. I have a mickelson'esque blade white hot 8 putter which i love the feel of but am inconsistent with and a black series no 2 (both odyssey) that i am really consistent and solid with . . basically i use the black series for a few rounds, feel like im putting like a god then swap to my white hot which brings me back down to earth with a bump. The problem is i prefer everything about the blade even though it isnt the best performer

I have 2 putters that I change up from time to time - a Ping Anser and a TM Rossa Monte Carlo half mallet. When I get in a putting funk, I switch over. Helps for a while (placebo effect?), but the Ping is my stock putter & stays in the bag longer.

I have two putters that are very different from each other when one starts to acted up I switch it out.  A change of scenery does my eyes some good once in a while.

A few weeks ago we had our invitational and during the practice round I didn't putt all that well, so the first round of the tournament I brought out the other and putted great, two weeks later another invitational at a different club and the same thing happened again.  I switched back funny how our minds work when it comes to comes to golf... well at least my mind.

I have a 4 iron and 4 hybrid that get swapped out depending on my mood. Also I have a high bounce sand wedge that I bring to courses with fluffy sand - the green side bunkers at my home course are generally rock hard so I use a low bounce 58 degree. I have numerous 3 woods but my original is the one I hit the best so I havent swapped that out in ages.

I have a couple Hockey Stick Putters (a Wisconsin Badgers one and a Chicago Blackhawks ones) and an old Ping G2 sand wedge that I use for practice so that I dont wear out my gamers but other than that I dont keep a lot of clubs lying around.

If I dont like a club, I get rid of it.

I recently put an old Bridgestone mallet in the bag that I have had for years and seldom used and as others said, it is helping me out of a putting funk. I have 4 other putters, all of which I like, but the Bridgestone will be in the bag for a while.

In addtion to the clubs in my sig, I am also carrying a Callaway 23* 4H and an old PING ZING 5 iron I am experimenting with. If I am riding they will all stay in the bag (ten clubs) but when I am walking I will drop one of the 5 irons and swap out the 3H with the 4H depending on what course I am playing.

I have a new shaft like the one in my driver sitting at the clubmaker's shop that I am probably going to put in an old Firesole head, but my next project is probably going to be a wedge.
