Ladders, have you been fitted?  If so, how do you manage to get the correct club for your swing buying the way you do.

I'm just an old duffer and remember a time when a golfer would just consult friends, study the articles (now it would be Internet research) and have a trusted club pro or two give advice. @ladders11 HCP would indicate his method works for him, although I suppose there's always room for improvement by a fitting. There certainly might be in my case, but I simply like the shafts, feel, distance and ball flight of my old clubs. Best, -Marv

Would love to get new clubs more often but so far it’s about every 15 years or so.  Bought first set of (new) irons in 1997 and then current irons in 2012.

I just bought a set of Cobra one-lengths. 24 degree Hybrid, 6-GW + a SW. I hit my 7 iron well and driver okay. I figure that if I can play every club like a 7 iron it might help. The bone spurs in my shoulder don't tolerate long practice sessions. Plus that short 24 degree hybrid might help with the bump and run chips. I hit them well on the Foresight. They'll be here in about 10 days. I'll let you know.

For a few years I was playing with mizuno mx-17 irons. For no reason other than I just wanted to try something different, I swapped them out for a set of cobra fp irons, I actually purchased the cobra irons new on sale and just never thought about trying them.  This has been over 2 years ago. Now I'll probably keep playing with the cobra irons until another good deal on a set of irons comes along.

I have been playing since I was 12 or so.  My first set was a cut down/junior set and once I hit about 16 or so I moved on to normal sized sets.  I am onto my 3rd set since then.  Been playing around 30 years since then, so I guess one every 10 years or so, though no plans to replace my current set due to Vitamin M.

You guys make me feel guilty. While I have hung on with the Ping G400 for 3 or so years, 3wood for almost 2, and wedges for more than 3 (sharpened a time or two), I haven’t kept a set of irons for 2 years. The allure of shiny blades is too much.

I replace virtually everything about every 5-8 years. Usually the set makeup changes when I change things out. The soonest I've ever replaced an iron set is after about 3 years. Drivers as often as every 2, but I've used drivers for 6-7 years also. Putters....don't get me started
