910D2 10.5 driver (D3) 'Ilima 61g regular
913F 13.5 fairway (D3) Diamana M+ 60g R
913H 19, 24, 27 hybrids (D3, D3, A3) Diamana S+ 70g R
iWin single length hybrid 38* (marked as 9) with 37.5" TT steel shaft.
AP2 6-8 irons Project X Rifle 5.5
RM21 42* (9 iron replacement)
SM6 50-08 (bent to 48*)
White Ice putter.
So who says you need 1-3-5 woods, 4-PW, 52-56-60 and putter?
The 38 hybrid hits 150 yards. It is handy in some situations where it calls for 6-8 irons. Kind of like LT's "6 wood" thing of the 1970s.
42* thru 64 are wedgeflex.

Certainly up to you to decide what works for you... as you obviously have.
I wholeheartedly agree about the 64* wedge - I'd be first in the queue if they re-introduced that in Vokey.
I've got a copper 64* TM in the garage which goes in and out of my bag on a regular basis.
I can actually control the spin with that so much better than a 60* spin mill.

I recently returned to playing golf after a 10-year hiatus. Several people, none of whom I have ever met, served as role models in putting together my current setup. Included are golf writer David Owen, club pro Matt Dobyns (a Titleist guy) and Lou G of this blog.
Lou - I really have learned a lot from reading your detailed and informative threads. You and I are about the same age and you will no doubt recognize some familiar themes in my bag:
png G5 driver - 13.5* reshafted at 43.5" with a Proforce V2 light regular shaft. brought up to D2 swingweight by using a Winn Dritac lite grip and lead tape.
Titleist 915F 3 wood - 15*; surefit setting of B3 so the loft is actually 16.5* and lie is .75* upright, Diamana red shaft, regular flex. I LOVE this club off the tee!
Titleist 910F 7 wood - 21*; surefit setting of C3 so the loft is actually 21.75* and lie is .75* upright. Bassara regular flex shaft.
Titleist 915H 3 hybrid - 21*; surefit setting A3 so loft is actually 22.5* and lie is 1.5* upright. Diamana blue regular flex shaft.
Titleist 913H 5 hybrid - 27*, surefit setting A2 so standard loft and 1.5* upright. Diamana blue regular flex shaft.
