Wasn't that far off. Surprised I remembered it this closely. Not sure why I thought I had a 2 iron though.
Compared to someone with recent, well fitting clubs you're at a significant disadvantage because your technology is outdated and, by your own admission, your clubs don't fit (at least your driver and fairway). While the club manufacturers spit out new stuff every year, the technology doesn't advance that rapidly so I'm not one who will tell you that you need the latest stuff. That said, technology is currently well ahead of everything you're playing (I'd let you keep the Cleveland wedge if the grooves are still in decent shape but I've got a feeling they're not).
I see this situation often and it bothers me because getting well fitting clubs with recent technology is cheap and easy. Free launch monitors (which will help you better understand your swing, your equipment and areas for improvement) are available at local golf retailers. Once you've figured out what gear would work for you head over to eBay. Very good two to three year old clubs (IMO this is the sweet spot if you're looking to maximize bang for buck) in good condition can be found dirt cheap (drivers under $100, fairway woods and hybrids $50-75ea, iron sets for around $200-300, etc) there.
