If your PINGs fit you in length, lie, and flex, and if you are not concerned with the condition of competition groove rule, and if your clubheads are not adversely worn, I would consider a new set of grips and keep swinging them. I think I would get a lot of support from EYE2 devotees on here for that suggestion. There is nothing wrong with new irons of course, and there are so many to meet your needs. If you participate in any formal competitions, I would be careful to select clubs that meet the groove rule, even though it doesn't directly affect a lot of us for a few more years. You seem to keep stuff a long time(I do also), so if you compete that might affect you. The companies you mentioned are both good, and also I would suggest Titleist AP1's or AP2's, and since you have had these PINGs for so long, why not check out their offerings as well?

The current ones are worn, the face is getting pretty worn out. That's why I am looking as I'm back into golf I would like to play some tournaments but it's not a huge deal. I didn't like the feel of the brew ping stuff no idea why. Does anyone have anything for sale or know of a online provider that is reasonable? I have heard eBay is a complete scam with clubs but then I hear different

How the hell is "ebay a complete scam"?

There are sellers on ebay and you buy from a seller. Not from ebay.

I had just read a article that was all. It had stated something along the lines where they just make clubs slap a name brand and that's that's. I am not a eBay person think I have used it once. Can you suggest some links please. If so thank you.

I am actually selling quite a few clubs. I am selling a 10.5° Cobra S3 Driver (Stiff Flex with Golf Pride NDMC Mid-Size Grip in 9/10 condition) and Cobra S2 Irons (4-PW+GW, R Flex, Standard grips, lie and loft). The 7i has slight cosmetic damage on the top-line where a piece of the black plastic chipped off. However, this is purely cosmetic and is really not noticeable when looking down at the club. Feel free to message me if you are interested and maybe we can work something out.

Hi there, If you are at a 12 handicap you may check out the Cleveland CG16i tour and I think they still have the non-tour CG16i(more forgiving)

I got mine(3-pw) tour model...new off amazon for under 400 dollars, I believe they are close out 2011 clubs and ship for free. It took about four rounds with them but i really have them dialed in now, and basically love them...John

Club manufacturers have already stopped making their 2013 year model lines. I just got fitted for a new set of Nike VR Pro Combo irons and the price was much lower for what they've sold for during the year. Of course Nike isn't making these irons next year, but deals are out there right now.

I picked up the Mizuno 2014 equipment catalog yesterday at a local golf shop.

    • https://www.gamegolf.com/player/bweiss711/round/1137850 A couple of firsts in this round.  It was my first round using the GG tags, and it was also my first round ever under 100.  If you want to see what 18 holes looks like when you have no clue where the ball is going off the tee and have no short game at all to speak of.... check out this round!
    • I think the point is, if the victim of a non-violent theft decides to use violence against the thief well after the crime was committed, he opens himself up to all kinds of trouble. Obviously it's different if someone gets jumped or car-jacked and the criminal is the first one to threaten or use violence. I'm not sure how pepper spray is classified in terms of being a weapon or not but I imagine using it could legally be considered assault in a situation like this.  
    • Well, I did it!  Been taking hacks at golf courses for 20 years, started actually practicing 7 weeks ago, and I finally mother-effing broke 100 yesterday.  Shot 96 at a course I had only played one time before about 8 years ago. This was easily the most consistent I've ever hit the ball into the greens (8 GIRs) and my driving was as good as it has been all season.  The biggest thing with the driver was deciding to stop trying to be perfect on the tee.  Meaning, I wasn't concerning myself with how I thought I should be ideally hitting the club, instead, I just hit it the way I naturally hit it right now, played the "power fade" aimed out over the left side of the fairway, and mostly kept it in play.  I was still inconsistent off the tee with a few pop ups and pulled shots, but for the most part, I stayed out of trouble. The even better news is that I shot 96 and my short game was terrible. I had a couple duffs in sand traps and from the rough around the greens.  Plus, of my 8 GIRs, I 3-putted 5 of them and it wasn't always the lag putt that was the problem.  I missed a few 3 footers that you just can't miss.  So, I've still got plenty of strokes to remove from my score once I actually start to work on shots around the green.  To this point, all of my practice has focused full swings with the irons and driver.  So, needless to say, I'm really excited about this.  I think i'm just going to play the rest of the season with the same practice focus.  Might be time to start a "member swing" thread for my driver.  And in the off-season, the focus will shift to the short game. Unfortunately, it might be a few weeks before I'm able to get out for 18 again, but I can't wait to get out there and try to do this again.
    • The incident in the OP doesn't sway my opinion on gun control one way or the other. Isolated incident in which some angry, old white dude should lose his right to carry indefinitely, but nothing that makes me believe that every gun carrier needs to be affected or restricted due to this incident. The John Wayne comments from some of y'all however, do make me think that gun laws need to be seriously revisited. The fact that some of you...ahem...more extreme individuals are actually permitted to carry is frightening indeed. And before there is an uproar, let me be clear that I have no issue with most of you who carry as your comments seemed to be well balanced and rational. Some others...not so much. It's seems pretty obvious to me that your right to bear arms should be dependant upon on your ability to not lose your shit when you're pissed off.
