I have a habit of rotating my fairway woods. Once I throw down the bucks for a driver, it stays put for at least 5 years. My irons (MP-14), over 20 years now. My putter changed from a Ping B-60 (20 years) to an Odyssey Marksman (past 10 years). Still have the B-60. My wedge is Cleveland Tour Action 56 deg that I've had for over 30 years. I've killed a rattlesnake with it. 

The fairway woods are like old girlfriends, you think about them once in a while, but the memory fades. There is always that one that seem to stick in your mind the longest. Mine was a Ping ISI  3- wood with a regular flex steel shaft. So I searched and searched without my wife knowing, and set a date ( 1 week shipping) to get reacquainted with my old friend:)  Diablo move over..... 

Here's a picture. After all these years, I don't look that good either.

I had a 5w I really liked and could hit well, but I broke it so I couldn't use it anymore. I think I tried to fix it once but decided it wasn't worth the effort.

So yea, just like an ex girlfriend ;-)

Well... The date didn't exactly go as planned. First of all, I purchased this club as pictured from 3Balls .com. What showed up was an older Karsten fairway wood with an all metal bottom. Not an ISI hybrid model. I returned the club to them, and was refunded the full amount. Soon after, I found one on Ebay. I received it a little over a week ago. I took it to the range, but the old magic just wasn't there. Another $40. club to add to my club boneyard. It did show me how much better I have it with my current Diablo.....3W.

similar story, but in my case, it was a set of Orlimar Tri-Metal Miraged (low profile), I practically gave them away to an older gentleman who purchased some other stuff from me. He was absolutely thrilled!

I have done this so many times that my room is overflowing with golf clubs. I review them periodically to ask: How well do I play with this? and Is it time to go to the 1st Tee? -Marv

If you look in my closet and the spare room where I keep my clubs, you would see I don't trade many in.

I need a purge. I actually did sell a few back in the summer, but they were mostly recent acquisitions. I have a Taylor Raylor from about 1990 that still gets in the bag now and then, but a little 15* Callaway XR may have permanently taken that spot for the next 10 years or so. I won't be selling the Raylor though.

My buddy has a Diablo 3 wood that he has let me hit on the practice tee, Amazing! He doesn't play it, currently, but won't part with it, despite repeated pleading on my part!

Sounds like me! My "back room" looks like one at the local golf store!
