I got my first set in 2002,they were a set of blades(I don't remember which model) but I got them at a great price and learned to hit them. I shot my best round ever using them.

Okay deaconfann....I'm going to date myself but here goes:

1980- My first set of Titleist "Tour Model"

1987- Titleist "Box Blades"

1994- Titleist "DCI Golds"

1999- Titleist "DCI 990"

2002- Titleist "690 MB"

2006- Titleist "735 CM"

2010- Titleist "710 MB"

and finally.....2012-Titleist "AP2 712"  and I have  all of these clubs in my collection... Go Team Titleist!!!

First was the DCI's  in the early 90's.  But my favorite set (before my current 712 AP2's) were the 731 PM's.  My first glimpse of a Titleist set was my Dad's Acushnet AC 108's in the 70's. He played those irons until he switched to a "senior" type set a few years ago.

Not sure when but my first Titleist set were 762 cavity back inserts. Second set were forged 962 cavity back which is my set in Las Vegas.
I currently use AP2 710 bought in 2011.

My first Titleist set was a custom fit set of 690MB's 2-PW.  I used those until I was fitted and purchased the AP2 710's.

Great products all around.

I am new to playing Titleist clubs. I got my AP2's in the fall, and then added the wedges. The driver, and putter should arrive today, and I got my 3 wood yesterday. I used to play TM and Adams.

My first set of Titleist irons was in 1981 - a Tour Model 90 forged blade.  Learned the game of golf with those beauties!  I then moved up to the DCI's, then the 735.CM's, and am now gaming the ZB's.  I would love to see another blended set (similar to the 735's and ZB's.  Maybe that is on the drawing board for next year...

Mine was 2009 with the AP2's, 909 D2, 909 F & 909 Hybrid, three Vokey Spin Milled Black Nickel wedges.  I received my Scotty Cameron Newport Two as a gift 4-5 year before the rest of my Titleist clubs.  

The Titleist's were replacing a set of TM RAC blades and older driver and fairway woods.  Very happy with the Titleist set and plan on upgrading to the 913 series of driver, fairway and hybrids in the near future as soon as I can arrange a fitting.  Next will be a new iron set probably with the next generation of the AP-2's.

My first "set" of Titleist irons were the DCI 990's and I got those in the early 00's.  Played them until I purchased my current set of AP2's in '10.  As far as woods, I used to have a 975D, 980F, 983E, and 909D2 prior to my current 910D3 and 910F.  I loved that 980F and carried it in my bag for at least 11 years, if not longer.  13.5 degrees with a steel shaft and it felt great when I flushed one. It was great off the tee and the deck.  I only just replaced it at the end of last season.

I've had my Scotty Cameron Laguna 2.5 for over a decade and I've played Vokey wedges for as long as I can remember.  At this point I can't see myself ever playing equipment from another manufacturer.  Titleist is simply THE BEST!

Forgot to add my Titleist Tour Model irons.  Had a 1-PW in that set.  Then moved to the 690 MB's Forged.  Then to the AP2's

I have been an all Titleist club player for over ten years.  Now thanks to forums like this, we can meet like minded golfers.

Some interesting posts so far - my line up reads like this:

Mid 90's - Second Hand set of Titleist Tour Model Blades

Late 90's - 762's

Early 00's - 990's

Mid 00's - 660's (Should have kept these beauties and had them re-shafted!)

2008 - Original AP2

2013 - Hoping an AP2/CB/MB blend set gets released??

Titleist/Acushnet   AC's......c. 1973   (Paid $200 for 9 irons -- which was a week's pay)  They were among the first game improvement clubs.  Wish I still had them.

Tour 821      c.1983

Tourblade   c. 1988

DCI Black     1993    (Still play these on occasion.  Absolutely great clubs.)

AP1               2008   (Best of the lot)

 

Played my high school/college golf with a $100 set Wilson Sam Snead Blue Ridge (9 irons 'n' 3 woods. )   And also, in the '80's, mixed in a set of Wilson FG17's. 

Used a few different DCI models and other manufacturers in the 1990s and 2000s, but have been 100% Titleist since getting a set of 735.CMs around 2006 or 2007?  Since then I've had AP2s.

DCI Oversize Black (used for 300 I think) in 1996 or 1997.  First set of irons and finally moved to AP1's a few years ago.

Set of 710 AP1 irons.  Since then the whole bag has been converted to Titleist!
