Hey Mark ! Know this is an older post but was the perfect opportunity to ask the question ! Few years ago the Taylormade Burner was one of the best driver on the market . Would it stand up to the new drivers out there ? If not then who is the new top dog in drivers . Maybe a side by side comparison of the Burner vs the Epic or even the G400 ? Would love to get your view on this older driver versus some of the newer ones on the market . Thanks !

Im a bloke who buys a set and keeps them for years. I dont run to the golf shops or pro for clubs if im struggling, I get lessons. Amazes me how many people spend £300 on a driver or tinkering with their sets but balk at paying £20 to se a pro. Ive had my Adams for 8 years and they are battered now ( i play about 70 -100 rounds a year) but hasnt stopped me playing offf a cat 1 hadicap. Im changing mine because I need to. Quite excited about getting a new set though

Mark, I have Mizuno MX 17 Irons that are at least 12 years old. Has the technology changed enough to upgrade them? I have hit the Taylormade M1 Irons really well at the local golf shop. I haven't gotten fitted completely because I am not sure if it is worth it.

Mark, Nice to meet your wife! Have watched your videos for several years; a little ways fun and interesting. Must say that, as a middle-aged guy only now getting "serious" about trying to improve, it's clear that the really good players are those who had the good fortune to have a father or coach who taught them for free when they were kids or teens. The notion of paying $80/hr or more as an adult to learn driving, draws, fades, downhill lies, ball above the feet, sand shots, backspin, and putting. . .well, one would go broke trying to get better at something that, at the end of the day, really isn't of any import: to wit, plopping a ball into a home with a few less strokes than one's pals. Enjoy it if you're already good, but how can a middle-aged hacker really justify the expense and bother? Cheers. P.S. Tennis is far more learnable for the average adult!

I change clubs for a few reasons:

1. New equipment - looks is a big deal with golf equipment. You have to feel comfortable. If a new iron set or driver comes out that i feel more comfortable looking over, I may make the jump.

2. New ideas - Sometimes i think i could do with changing the lofts on my wedges to better suit gaps, or maybe swapping out that 3 - iron to a hybrid.

3. Results - kinda goes hand in hand with new ideas, if i see improvements in shots made i will switch.

In the past I have always changed clubs for two main reasons. One being to take advantage of new technology and two to change or improve the feel I have with a club.


Chris L
Chris L - 4 years ago
2 reasons why I change golf clubs. First is if one wears out I talk that opportunity to try something new. Second is I lose confidence in something. If I am standing over the ball with a club in my hand and I my thought processes is "I hope I can hit it this time" It is time to change. My newest addition is a putter mostly because I lost confidence in the old one.

I change mainly because of performance. Had problems with to light and wippy shafts. My misses very left and right. Changed to KBS C-Taper X stiff... Now my dispersion it tighter. Furthermore my distance control is way better, witch was a bonus I did not see comming! Now my muscles can't control the club. The club does the work and I can still go for it hard...
Other reason is feel and looks... I just love new gear and you can see it if you went through my bag

I use R11 irons, jet speed driver, R11 5wood and mixture of wedges.
With saying that I have had my clubs since I started playing golf in 2014. I have gone from handicap of 36 to playing off 6.5
I feel I am hitting my clubs better then ever but feel I don't have the distance n that my wedges don't spin much anymore.

Should I look at changing or just get new wedges
Jamie Todd

I'm thinking of changing my irons from ping G irons to the ping i200 as I've now been playing golf for just over 2 years and my handicap has come down to 10 I'm a pretty consistent player and I feel going from a game improvement club to a club that still offers help but will also give me more consistent numbers ie no knuckleballs or less at least will benefit me in the long run. Obviously I would test this theory on a fitting/lesson 1st but that would be my reason for changing. What do u think Brah
Steve Forman
Steve Forman - 4 years ago
I used to change equipment in the hope of improving performance but never found that driver that goes 300 yards straight down the middle.
Putter and wedges changed on look and feel mainly. Everything else has stayed the same for about 4-5 years now which is a long time for me as I used to change driver every year and irons every 2.
Cheers for the content.

I'd change if a club fitter showed me that a different club would perform for me better. Of course, club fitter time costs money, so I'd have to suspect that there's something wrong with my clubs or something new technology since I last bought a set, which was 10 years ago.
petembb - 4 years ago
Feel, look, performance in that order, but anyone could be a deal breaker. I have to love the club right away to throw money at it. That way i know that when i buy it, i want to play with it. Buying something that dont makes you wanna go play right away just seems wrong.

fezzer - 4 years ago
Not necessary performance for me Mark, Nor to buy something new. IT was based down to look at address. I had some x hot irons (2012/13) which were quite offset and seemed to give me loads of problems. So i changed to some forged Mizuno mp30s (2005), they feel and look at address very nice. So it helped my confidence and stopped me being a bit confused when lining them up at address.

I'm thinking of changing my clubs I've been playing with a package set for the last 4-5 years and I feel like I'm ready for a change in a better set/brand of clubs.

I'm wanting to buy all new clubs other than the putter but due to costs I will do this gradually but don't know which way to go about it, should I buy a set of irons first then driver or driver first and work my way down any advice would be greatly appreciated

I've had my Ping G10s since they were the newest Pings out and I started playing. I've tried other clubs but nothing has really made me think wow I need to change. I know that I'm the biggest factor in the game as I see brilliant shots and crap ones from my own clubs. I currently play off 12 and if I ever got to single figures and stayed there I might feel I'm consistent enough to see whether new clubs may or may not be worthwhile. So for me its when I'm consistent. I've also had the same putter and had great putting streaks and very poor ones. Again its me not the club.

I started golf zwei years ago. First of all Ichange all my clubs that are not fitted into fitted ones. Then when I become better I'll change them to fit better to my game and my abilities. Or I will change clubs when I'm feeling really uncomfortably to play them. But before changing them immediately I would let check the specs first of all. Perhaps there is only a change of setting or shaft etc.

Why do we put the weight in the toe of a driver to encourage a fade, yet in the toe of a putter it encourages release (draw) doesn't this contradict each other, anyway new clubs are all about looks and feel to me, especially the flat stick

Was playing with graphite shafted irons and my handicap moved up from 16 to 19. Decided to try out my old steel shafted irons (bought in 1977) and lowered my handicap down to 14. They just "felt" right. Playing with graphite shafted irons is like having sex whilst wearing a condom.

Started playing golf about 18 months ago. Think my 60 wedge is wearing out a bit, so that's a reason for replacement. I want to move away from my RSi1's to get some softer irons. Maybe moving to blades. Also quite like the feel of my brothers baffler hybrid and thinking of getting one of those. So it would be a case of changing based on feel, self improvement and wear and tear. Before watching a lot of your videos I would have been bought into a lot of the marketing and stories of eg longer drives. Now realise I'm happy with eg my driver, so why change.

Personally I think golf is hugely a confidence based game. If you 'feel' good about a club or a ball or grip or whatever, you'll think less about the nuts and bolts of your potential faults and just focus on the good vibes. Which I think leads to good scores. Hence why you can have 2/3/4 bad holes and then suddenly spanking your driver down the middle or sinking a big put can set fire to your round. Just my two pence.
Jeremy Holt
Jeremy Holt - 4 years ago
I'm changing clubs next month because I never got custom fit and I just grabbed a set of Cobra irons off the rack last year that was in my budget to get back into the game. Shaft and lie are off for me as I get better, so getting fit by a top 100 fitter July 19th for hopefully some Mizunos or Ping. But will go with whatever gives me the best overall performance. Thanks for the vids Mark. You have convinced me to get up and get fitted, and also taught me to not just grab a SGI iron because of my handicap but to open my mind to playing a better club if the numbers are there.

In the process now of changing my woods. I have the titleist 910s in driver and 3 wood and a even older 5 wood

I feel it's time for a change, hoping for slightly better performance, plus my swing will be different from what it was 6 years ago, so a custom fit will give me a club which better matches, and therefore performs better for my swing.

i change my clubs because im a total design whore. If i like another brands design i tend to want thier products, particularly hand crafted, custom built bits of awesome. Its normally because of looks, occasionally its because they might help hit a distance (hybrids) or are worn out (wedge). Im never stupid enough to buy them because i think theyll help lower my handicap....but sometimes,....just sometimes,.......they do.

at the start of the season I brought some 2nd hand Taylormade Burner 2.0 irons, I have definitely improved with these clubs but recently I decided to get fitted for them but the expert informed me my swing was too fast for my regular shafts and suggested I looked at some stuff or xstiff shafts with maybe a club that is not so much of a game improver so even though I've not had these clubs long I am indeed looking to get a new set which will hopefully allow me to play better and be more consistent with.

I think the next time I upgrade my irons will be when I feel my strike has improved sufficiently to move away from my current GI clubs (as I feel I need all the help I can get at the moment), to a better looking, better feeling club. Would probably stick within the same brand though (Mizuno).

Reason I am considering a change? I was fitted for a full bag set about 2 years ago, lost 40 lbs. after changing diet and started hitting the gym, now clubs feel lighter, swing plane a bit flatter and tempo quicker and my misses are now big draws and pull hooks. Friends say swing much different. Index dropped to 12 from 17. Is it the shooter or the gun? I think it's a bit of both. Thoughts appreciated.

b. feel (I am not going to perform well with them if I don't like the way they feel.)
c. what else is there...? (oh. right. sponsorship money..?...yes please!)

I change when I feel like it, specifically when the old isn't giving me excitement of using it anymore. For example drivers, fairway woods and hybrids start looking rather used/abused after 18 to 24 months so I replace them whereas my irons and putter feel like they gain character through usage and thus stay 3 to 5 years in my bag.

Having just changed all but three of my clubs it's a question I recently struggled with.

My putter was changed three months ago, because the putter I have used for more than 20 years was wearing out. It had acquired dings on the face. The manufacture had gone out of business and back in, was producing a new version, I gave it a try and liked it. Probe 20/20 retired, replaced by probe 20/10.

I am older 58, and due to age and injury by swing speed had slowed down. I was using 2004 Callaway Big Bertha, and switched to new Adams Blue Line. I was ready to move from 3 and 4 iron, to 3 and 4 hybrid, and wanted the Slim Tech Adila shafts which are lighter 55 grams, and designed to produce a kick for higher launch. Working with a launch monitor I have gained an average 5 yards on the irons, 9 to 12 feet in elevation over my Callaway RCH shafted irons. Have also moved to regular shaft based on club head speed data. The 3 and 4 hybrids are problematic as they are approximate 20 yards longer than my 3 and 4 irons were, leaving me a larger gap between the five iron and four hybrid than I had with my old irons. (Just takes practice)

The big change was to new Mac Daddy 2 58 degree and 54 degree wedges to replace my Big Bertha sand wedge and Adams 60 and 64 degree Tom Watson Wedges. The switch to forged wedges with new groves has been awesome. I have able to stop shots and spin back shots like never before. (I play in Southern California)

The big issue now is learning how the clubs react to intermediate shots. The difference in design technology from shaft tuning to head feel, and balance in the 11 years between when the Big Bertha's were released 2004, and the Adams Blue were released 2015 is obvious. I tried a number of clubs, Callaway, Pin, Taylormade all were better feeling, and performance numbers than my old Big Bertha, but the Blues felt best and were good to my eye.

For me the key was a slowing swing speed, and reduced ability to flight my three iron.

I am fortunate as I am a member of the PGA Super Store in Irvine, and as such have unlimited no cost use of the instrumented driving bays, I can evaluate swing speed, ball speed, launch angle, face angle, impact position, and have video, so my assessments are data driven.

The down side now is controlling distance. I care less about getting an extra 5 yards than being able to hit my mark plus or minus 10 yards consistently. That will take some time.

Switched to the same Two ball and I'm back on track now. Maybe the heavier head helps me release the putter? Will definitely switch back to the Scotty once I work thru my putting woes.

over 10 years of buying all the golf clubs in the world (how I found Mark), I finally have the perfect set that I'll take til they rust. I've hit enough old lost and found clubs at the range to confirm there's little difference in new clubs other than shinyness.

supertuber59 - 4 years ago
i did just recently change my irons, from a well loved set of mizuno MP62 s to a set of Wilson FG tour V6 .
primary reason: been playing the mizunos for 6 or 7 years, have no issues with them, love them actually - hit an ace with the 5 iron. but the shorter irons are showing some wear and i thought if there was something that checked all the boxes I'd give them a hit and see what happens. the wilson V6 s check all the boxes (half cavity, forged, chrome, classic looks) and i came upon a mint used set for $550. love at first strike. they're great clubs. gonna wear them out.

I change my putter, wedges, irons and woods for different reasons

I changed putter once since 2010 (a month ago) when I tried a new bladed one and love the look, feel and weight. So I'd say I change putters when I want kind of refresh.

I change wedges when I feel the ones i'm using don't get the bite they used to. I changed from VR Pros to MD3s this summer.

I've changed Irons throughout my progression as a golfer. From junior set, to big chunky Ping GMax look-a-likes, to R11s and now to Vapor Pro blades. As I got better, I felt like the slimmer the club the better. I'll probably change for another blade in a couple of years when my current will be battered. I couldn't go for big chunky ones right now thats for sure.

And finally, I tend to change woods when a big technology breakthrough comes out. I went from a basic Wilson from a junior set to an R11 (adjustability) and then the low spin / weight forward drivers (SLDR) came out and I switched to a Nike Covert 2.0 Tour and I am now using a Nike Vapor Pro. I won't change until something big comes out (Epic Subzero maybe?).

Sooo yea, that's pretty much it. Different clubs, different reasons.
Cheers braaaah

Got my new irons arriving TODAY, cobra bio cell. Been playing for a year now with 20 year old funky graphite Wilsons. Performance had got to a point where I've decided to invest in my game. I'm 6'4 so these new irons are 1" longer shafts and they are steel. Got some first lessons booked in. So excited to see how/if my performance changes, and how long the adaptation takes.

Will also be changing putters after losing the feel for my current putter, yes lot of my changes is on timing and feel to get better

Mark...Hello from Florida. On your question... and you will appreciate this.... I just changed my irons last week. When I was in my teens and early 20's I was about a 5-8 handicap. Played Junior Golf Tournaments, High School etc. Didn't play much for many years because of military, marriage, kids etc etc. Just start playing a lot again (I'm now 47) the last few months at least once a week. A couple months ago I made the mistake of taking advantage of a perceived good deal on some irons from a bigger chain store off the shelf. I played about 8-10 rounds with them but just was having terrible inconsistent results. I had enough. I went to a smaller golf shop in town and told them my story and that I need to get fitted properly. After a pretty well done process (Ive watched yours and the other guys like Shiels and Finch etc videos on getting fitted) and trying numerous clubs, shafts, measurements, hit plates etc etc. I ended up with some Ping G black dot irons with graphite regular (70?) shafts. The irons I traded in were semi blade type irons with steel shafts. Just shows you how much I changed up.I went out that afternoon and shot one of the best rounds I have shot in years. Had 3 birdies...ended up with a 81 (+9). So I guess my answer to your question is if you are playing bad and didn't get properly fit or tried to take a shortcuts or play with vey outdated clubs....its time to stop the shenanigans and get fitted.

Shared! I told myself at the start of the season that I was good with the clubs that I had and did not need new. Was at a lesson and my coach said that my driver isn't good for my swing, immediately started looking for a new on on line. Replaced the driver and three wood. Rest of my clubs have remained from last year. Putter I doubt I'll change for a long time since I live the look and how it feels. Wedges are newer and I like the way they work for me. Irons I'm not changing until I'm back to a 2. So I guess I'd say all of the reasons, feel, look, tech, price are reasons for me to change. Part of the game Bruh!

What matters is...what makes the ball go in the hole? Sam putt lab wont help! Read Rotella on Billy Mayfair's putting! Here's an opinion for the question tomorrow...."is custom fitting just a con to sell more clubs?' Negative, realistic or just an acceptance that multiple points of view have merit? Your call....

Getting better at my game and wanted to switch from 712 AP2 to Mizuno JPX 900 Tour.. Hit them really well and controlled them very nicely! And switched from S300 to KBS 130 tour x stiff shaft that have helped with my feel of control over my shots.

I would only change clubs if I felt I was outgrowing them as a player. I'm currently looking to change from GI irons to 'better players' irons because I want clubs that allow me to shape the ball a bit more and I actually find the chunkiness of my clubs a bit off putting now.

I just changed from the original R7 quad and the original TM RAC LT irons. loved both but the tech in the driver was too old. Epic subzero driver had the best numbers but it was more about feel. Also got the subzero 15 degree 3 wood (set +1 and draw) and it is amazing. However moving to the mizuno jpx 900 forged irons hasn't been as smooth. They're 4 degrees stronger and I don't like the lower spin as mark has shown in other videos. I'll stick with them for now but I keep thinking about going back and I would if the old ones weren't so worn out - well I never would have change them to start with.

At this moment I would only change my putter. I have used a few different brand center shafted putters recently and I just feel like I hit the ball more on my target line with them. I feel like it would be a good change. My current versa 1W I love the look of but I just can't seem to hit my line as much as I did when I got it. I really like the look of the ping kinloch C at the moment but I'm unsure if it's worth the change...

The real fun is to tune the equipment to the bone. There are so many variables to adjust. Take my putter. She has been reassembled over 30 times trying to push tiny Improvement to the limit. Not claiming it helped but renewing the relationship does keep things fresh in the long run. BTW congratz. From here it looks you get a better roll with your new putter.
Boudewyn Haslinghuis
Boudewyn Haslinghuis - 4 years ago
it is bit more than that :-) I blasted the head; changed the face insert; switched the shaft (heavy); altered the lie angle but kept the torque balance by adding weight to the head; lengthened the shaft; counterbalanced the putter and tried 10 different grips over time. This work is done in many steps over a period of 4 years. I am tinkering to add a next step: use a zirconium face insert in stead of graphite. I will mill it with a special pattern. I always laugh at friends with their expensive Scotty collections.

For me club change is performance driven. I always try the new stuff, but unless I see a massive performance change for the better, I stick with what's already in play. This year I changed irons for the first time in a good while; went from a blade to forged cavity backs for some help on the occasional thin shot that's crept in with my playing and practicing less. Driver on the other hand has stayed the same for a few years since the latest and greatest doesn't give me anything more than I have on the performance end. It just gives me a different look and feel and something shiny and new in the bag.

Got to be performance for me to change clubs, pro at the club has finally realised I'm the biggest tyre kicker on the planet. Tried most of his new clubs when they come in, but still Playing my 10 year old Bridgestone's. It's not the cash I'm not seeing any benefit. Almost bought a set of those Cf16's coach was playing, then I saw how inconsistent his distance control was with them. The ease of hitting them a good distance was nice, but when I can stop my 6 iron quicker then the CF16 7iron, well they just can't go in the bag,

I've had a Wilson putter that I had with a box set for years. I don't have the box set clubs anymore but kept the putter because I know what it feels like when I putt. I know what it feels like when I've hit a good and a bad shot. However I am tinkering on the idea of rocking the boat and maybe going for a change in feel (it's probably about time)
Ross Barton
Ross Barton - 4 years ago
Results. If it can be demonstrated that changing a club (or aspects of a club, say the shaft flex, head weight or club settings etc.) will give me better results then I will change it. But I do that within the context of my set, so that my any changes I make still fit into my set. i.e. I won't change out a 3 Wood to get more distance for example, because that might upset the gap between my 3 Wood and my Driver and my longest Hybrid. But I would change my 3 Wood if it maintained the gap but gave me better results - i.e. was easier to launch from the fairway, was more accurate, helped me gain a stroke over the course of rounds etc.
Hopefully that makes sense...

I've recently changed my wedges after about 12 years. Came down to confidence, I'd hit too many shanks and the bounce of my 56 started to looked huge off the fairway, worried about thins. Went for a fitting and chose wedges that looked almost the same (black metal finish) with the same lofts. Difference was I got great results with the new ones which I hadn't felt for ages.

I've just changed my putter too, from a Never Compromise Milled Series #7 to the Odyssey O-Works #1 Wide. Both traditional style putters which I've always liked but was looking for a bit more weight for hitting longer puts from the fringe following a lesson so, AG had a putter fitting day at Thorpe Wood here in Peterborough and the Odyssey really worked for me. Had the Pistol GT grip option rather than the thicker 2 thumb. Still getting used to it, but so far results have been good. Upgrading the rest of my bag later this year as my Cobra S9 irons are 10 years old now and I fancy some new woods and hybrids too. I like the look of the Titleist H1's you reviewed. Keep up the good work Mark, really enjoy these videos

So I have a R5 driver that I love and hit well but the technology is now over 10yrs old. My 3 wood goes further. So I got fitted for a new driver but wanted the same feel as my R5. Got close to it with Cobra F7 and I hit it way further than my R5. Approx 20-30yds difference.
But it's just not the same. I miss my ol trusty

I'm Lucky to have 2 Sets of Clubs which deliver my optimum figures (obviously when strike is correct) If like now I have a club that "feels" to be underperforming I switch it out for the corresponding club in my other Set. My Mizuno 7 iron is being swapped out for my Benross 7 Iron this week. As for purchasing new clubs I would need some evidence that they will be an improvement on what I have, however this does not stop me trying every new club on the market in my quest for improvement :)

I base a lot on your advice. Not advice on which you hit the best or like the feel of, but that I need to try them and look at configurations. I'm still tinkering with my bag and still look for "that club" that will improve my club, lol! I bought a new driver this season and was fitted. Fitter gave a few swing tips to help improve. I've never hit the ball as far and, generally, as straight. I know this isn't the club but the fit. I now really trust this club tho and will find it hard to change. I try to change 1 or 2 items a year to try new things. Mainly feel and looks encourage me, but vanity is also high on the list!

I don't change unless something breaks or if I'm just trying out stuff for the fun of it. Like my sorta-cheap lob wedge I noticed had a dent on the face (not from a little rock, I mean a ball-sized impression) and swapped it because the face was no longer flat. There's also a thing recently where I got a used older Wilson 8802 putter that I swapped my Odyssey White-Steel 2-ball putter with last round just for kicks. They are like polar opposites in their look and feel, but I can play with them equally. I don't have a large collection of clubs just to swap out like that or anything, just a few spares for the fun of it.

Golf is 80% to 90% confidence. If you thing you will hook it in the trees you probably will, if you think you will hit a high draw into the middle of the fairway you have a chance of doing just that. Club change is just the same, I've just been to a putting lab and been through all the sam2 fitting and it's convinced me there were some changes needed both to technique and equipment.... new putter on the way and I know I'll hole more puts and it's not even in the bag yet!

That's why I change clubs from putter to driver!

I buy a new club because I want to. Numbers are irrelevant, I never measure them, if I pick it up, rip it and absolutely love it I buy it. I play golf because I enjoy hitting golf balls, if I dont enjoy it then why would I buy it even if it has teh best numbers in the world?

I like a regular club change with my thought process being that I'm always reviewing my bag to make sure I'm happy with everything. I can often manifest the idea that I need to change a certain club or clubs and once seed of the idea has been planted then it rarely takes long for me to get a new club. My general reasoning is that I enjoy the process of buying a club from looking at reviews to trying it out to getting fit. I don't ever believe that a new club will improve my golf but a new club will generally offer me something different, whether it be a lower spinning driver when I'm striking it well or higher launching longer irons when I'm struggling to strike them well enough, even seasonal changes like a putter I prefer on faster greens. I work hard for my disposable income so why not reward that with something shiney, there's worse things to waste money on...

Changed my year old AP1s to AP2s because the AP1 where from a certain golf shop and the AP2s where fitted with the correct stiffness of shaft and length and the test. Plus I liked the look of the AP2

For me, I would change because of the technology available now. I'm using a set of Mizuno T-Zoid Oversized. They are great clubs but I know I could perform better with a newer set of clubs because the technology has moved on.

Mrs. C, none of us are fooled. Collecting groceries via electric bike does not make one the chief chef. ;>) Nice watch! You most likely deserve a Rolex. Mark, you've explained the reason why most of us have a closet full of putters. Cheers.

I bought a box starting set of clubs back in 2006/2007 from a sporting goods store that included a Driver, 3W, 5W, 3H, 4H, 5-9I, PW, and a putter for $150. Over the years I've replaced the Driver, 3W, 5W, hybrid and putter so the next thing is the irons which I plan to do this year or next year.
