Forum Thread of the Day: “Going back in time equipment-wise?”

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Jaygolf37 who asked WRXers on their thoughts on going back in time equipment-wise. Jaygolf37 has recently found success after putting his Ping i5 irons back in his bag, and our members share their thoughts and experiences of siding with older equipment.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Aviador Naval: “I put a ~2005-2006 original Cleveland Ti Launcher fairway back in the bag for the umpteenth time. Smaller footprint by today’s standards. Only 15 deg club I’ve been able to hit reliably from turf. Currently playing a Mn-Bn Anser I bought in 1989. Like the lighter head weight. Just got some MP20 mid and short irons which are basically a redo of the TN-87s. Changes driven by a mix of functionality (fw), variety (putter), and irrational ho’ing (irons).”
  • cgasucks: “All my gamers are old with my newest clubs made in the early 2010s. I feel that with a good swing fundamental, one can play with any club out there. I think older clubs are better feeling, obviously a lot cheaper, and can still keep up with the present-day clubs out there since golf tech has been stagnant for years.”
  • scotty_2987: “Just put my 910 D2 back in play yesterday and had the best driving day I’ve had in a long time, and I was hitting it just as far as all the newer drivers.”
  • MountainGoat: “Whenever I lose my swing, I go back to a set of Maltby CER701Us that I assembled in 2006. Those are the clubs I was using when I discovered my current swing technique, so those are the ones I inevitably return to when I need to re-discover it.”
