Was wondering how many iron sets do you own? And the reason for owning more than 1 set.

I have 2 set most of the time & as both are quite differently spec, sometimes mess up my games a bit if I interchange them. So was thinking why would any1 have 2 sets.

At my highest point I had 7. Currently I have 1 set that I play with and one set in storage for guests to use.

The reason why I would have multiple sets would be for multiple conditions or if I had several houses and needed sets at each (makes it easier than traveling with clubs).

Only 1 set at all time. If I buy 1, I will sell the old one. Personally, I don't want to give myself a choice before heading to a game and choose to believe that the set i have is best for me.

I got 2, another on the way, and eyeing a fourth. I think I just have a fetish for irons and shafts.

Does anyone think it's strange for an individual to own like 20+ sets?

Have 4 sets. But all old sets of at least 10 years old. Only 1 set is bought new (2001) and custom fitted. Reason for buying is to test if it's true equipment plays a big part in lowering score. Found out it's not true, in my personal experience. The old sets that I bought 2nd hand played just as well (or bad) as my custom fitted set. In fact with the old set (Bob Toski) which I bought last year from E-bay (Singapore) which is at least more than 10 years old, I matched my lowest score recorded (81).

So, my personal view is training is more important than equipment. But that's only my view. Very Happy

I have 3 sets... looking to sell one (or two) today.

For me, it's too many. I think 2 sets is fair Smile

I have 2 sets; my first set (bought in 2002) and the one I'm currently using. Keeping the former for sentimental reasons, while the latter is my gamer which I like a lot.

Don't have much desire to change irons but I really love putters. There was a time I had 11, but now I've trimmed it to just 6. Laughing

I have a rare (I hope termed correctly) Bob Toski Catalyst blade putter with alumnium shaft. I change the grip to Crown (very thick type many years ago). Love the feel of heaviness. It's in my storeroom.

I have 3 set. As lefty golfer, it is quite hard to buy in Singapore. The first set is Wilson Di9. This set follow me about 8 month. After I start play on course, my friend send me a Mizuno JPX800 from US. This set let me change my game a lot. I used it on course play at around 85-90. 2 month ago I have my MP59. the bset Iron set for me.
