Some b a s t a r d took a shine to my MP53’s. And T7 wedges. And woods. And putter. And bag.

I need replacements. Any recommendations?

Hi Nick ... Really sorry to hear about this - Was this at your club or elsewhere? - If the former, will pass the word around about thieving bar stewards in the area ...
As to replacing them, you might be tempted to try the new MP18 range which obviously covers the cavity back through to full on blade, but having bought a set of JPX900 Forged this year I can't recommend them highly enough - I think they look fantastic & performance wise they are substantially longer than the MP5's they replaced - Nice compact head in the short irons too (which I prefer) - Blended well with the T7 wedges too which I see you were using ...
Good luck in the search & once again "sorry for your loss"
Paul
PS - If you need irons to use, I have 2x sets of Mizunos here you can borrow (& other clubs including a #7 Odyssey!)

Oh that's shocking mate.

I hope you have some way of being compensated but it's a kick in the teeth to have your personalised gear nicked.

Thanks guys. Theft took place outside my home.

I have plenty of other sets to choose from for the time being, but hopefully the insurance will pay for replacements.

The 53’s have the American numbering system on the hosel, with KBS Tour shafts and red Golf Pride grips. I had MX700 15/20/23 wood/hybrids with Orochi blue eye shafts, and the EZ 2016 driver with Speeder shaft. There was also a BRAND NEW JPX900 3 wood with Speeder shaft.  

I’ll look on eBay & Gumtree, but I’m not hopeful.

Oh man, that just makes me so mad. I hope the thief is caught and I hope you either get your sticks back or insurance covers everything.

I'm playing the 900 series Hot Metal irons and now that I have gotten them adjusted to my needs, I'm really happy with how workable they actually are. I have to admit though, having just seen the MP-18 series for the first time last Saturday, they are simply gorgeous.
I've had a good day if I didn't fall out of the cart...
