You and I both certainly love Wishon.  Just like you, only my putter is not one of his clubs.

They're certainly some of the most clubmaker friendly designs - which in turn becomes very player friendly as they can get dialled in to spec much better than a standard clubhead.  That, and when you look at TW's (Tom Wishon's) list of first and accomplishments, it makes sense that he has some very forward thinking designs and also some of the most playable.

Wedges:  Wishon PCF Micro Tour 56 & 60
 
Putter:  MentorSports Triad 2
 
Not bad - the driver was swapped out for the Encore/Evo and the Putter was a Rife Bimini.
 
I'm finally realising I need to 'set and forget' my bag if I'm going to start getting comfortable with my set and drop my handicap like 3rd period French.
 
For (ideally) the final spring shootout:
 
Drivers
Wishon 919/VS Proto
Nak HTEC/Matrix F7M2 Proto, NV Extreme, Creation 80 (I'll figure it out)
 
Irons
Nike Pro Combos
Wishon 870Ti
Wishon 550C LE
Nak NP1 (Gunmetal)
 
Putter
SnakeEyes SV2 Flange
Rife Bimini
MentorSports Triad 2
 
Wedges
As I won't have a home course this year, my plan is to actually have a few different pairs of wedges for different courses.  Some knife-like blades for firm bunkers, a low-bounce-wide sole design for average bunkers, and in the unlikely event that I find soft, fluffy bunkers in Northern Ontario, a high bounce wide sole pair.  I've got Infiniti IP3's for the firm and Wishon CX Micros for the mids, and will likely work some heel-relieved SMT Durometers for the fluffy.

Interesting on the Nike's?  I have started to look slightly "backwards" at irons myself. You have any experience with Ping i5's?  They have seriously caught my eye.  I am wondering what colored dot would be conducive to the type of bending we would want to do be tlt ish?

Just bumping this Ben, or anyone else who wants to comment on the i5's

Sorry, no experience with them per se.
 
If I were to buy a set of Pings with an eye to having them TLT'd, I'd likely buy black dot (or whatever closest came to a 1 degree lie change starting 64 degree PW.

Ok, that is what I needed.  Back in the day I had eye 2 that were blue dot, but i didn't know if the dot's had changed over time?  Should have never gotten rid of those.

Nice update.  LOL
 
For 09, the Wishon driver started and the Nak/NV Extreme finished out the year and well.  The 870Ti irons performed quite well with a Wishon 785HF hybrid 2i, and a Wishon PCF Tour SW.  I added a 3w to the bag - an Adams Boxer.  Kind of weird shaped but tall faced - great for me.

It's nice to see I'm an absolute headcase.  In 2010...
 
The 11° Wishon 919/BGD Solution 130 opened the season (as it does, highly forgiving and builds confidence) then the 9°Wishon 919/VS Proto saw some major game time, but the Nak/NV Extreme didn't really get going this year - but what did was a 10° Adams 9016d/NVS - just rocket launching at the end of the year (I played an "all OEM" bag for a 3 man scramble and it shone so brightly it just had to close out the season.)
 
The Wishon 870Ti irons got gamed the entire year - 3i to SW at a TLT series 9 and 2650 MOI.  Sadly, the 3i got bent when my bag fell off a cart Angry but the Wishon 785HF 2i hybrid filled in nicely.
 
I kept a Wishon PCF Tour SW for all short shots around the green - it worked out quite nicely.
 
I modded my MentorSports Triad 2 and put a crown royal Jumbo on it.  Feels great and rolls straight!
 
Halfway through the season I picked up a Nike Dymo 3w (with the matte black finish).  Super sweet looking and sounding head, but the stock shaft did nothing for me.  Chucked a piece of Nippon steel in there and started loving it right away - a sweet little "get home in 2" club on the shorter par 5's; booted the Adams out of the bag.
 
Strangely, no changes are planned for the 2011 season (except, perhaps, I'll move to the new limited-edition Wishon 560MC head.  'Cause they're super sexy.)
