I have been trying to find a set of irons I like better than my old MX-20's. No result yet.
I tried driver / hybrids / wedges / putter with no irons at all for a few weeks. No progress there either.
I have now played four rounds with driver / woods / wedges / putter.
Woods are steel shafted: Callaway BB 2004 used 5,7,9 ..... Bang SF assembled by me 11,13 …. SooLong assembled by me 17,19.
Good progress. Better than irons or hybrids down to 110 yards. Indecisive at present from 100 down - may lengthen shaft on 45 degree 19 wood as a further experiment.
The 11 wood for a bump and run is better than the 6 iron and easier from dodgy lies.
Verdict from my fourball is "if it works then why not?".
