The distances for the gap wedge seem about right to me - I am regularly 90 yards out from the green and manage to blade it around 220 ....

That would probably mean only 2 or 3 of my aliases would get the nod.
That wouldn't be a bad thing though.

I'm interested in how others choose their golf set. Is it based on emotional criteria or on a rational process.

How much do we know about our equipment?

Ive been fitted for every club in my bag.

The only thing i didnt take that advice on was wedges. They wanted me into MD3's, but the Mizzy S5's are sweeter.

I would like to think i know a lot about what is in my bag

Let's see. Have your clubs been altered from their original specs? If so what was the effect on the sole inversion as a result of the alterations?

I tried out driver, fw, and irons at the specified lengths, so can't comment on how they are different.

Irons i needed 1/2* flat, not sure if that made much difference?

Putter was a weight, headstyle etc, havent rolled my new Bettinardi yet so cant comment on that either, but im spot on for weight and length.

Do you know how to visibly determine the sole angle playability - marginal, poor or good?

No. As in the design of the club.
