Although I voted Titleist being a loyalist, I would choose Mizuno second. Here is the deal. Asking these questions should not help you decide. Don't believe this #1 irons in golf stuff from companies, and don't take our word as the word of god.

You need to explore if you are really looking into irons. Establish your level of play and look at it from there. High handi's should look into casted oversize irons with more forgiveness. If you're a lower hdcp and want workability in your club in lieu of forgiveness, look toward forged models. Shafts will make or break, so try plenty of those too. Get fitted by a trusted clubmaker/fitter or a PGA certified professional.

Please, use these comments as guidance, do not look at them as concrete and valid. We all have preferences and loyalties to specific brands based on what we know and like or use ourselves.

DO YOUR RESEARCH! What you think is more important that what everyone else thinks and says.

He starts a lot of fluff threads, which some people seem to like. How far do you hit your driver, what's the best driver, how much do you bench?

Sean,

This thread is like asking "What Ice Cream Flavor do you like?".   It's just as simple as that.   I don't buy Chocolate Ice Cream just because The majority of Human like Chocolate Ice Cream.    It would be INTERESTING to know if the majority of Human Being likes Chocolate ice cream though.

I have no idea why some Dudes told everyone this POLL is pointless.  I just don't get it.

BTW Sean, I never started these threads "How far do you hit your driver", "How much do you bench", etc.

The reality is all of these companies make some really good irons... plus you left out quite a few (Ping, Hogan, Miura, MacGregor... I'm sure there is more)...

Some people don't enjoy these threads because they clog the forum and detract from relevant discussions.  It's trivial to talk about the 'best' of anything without specific constraints or objectives.

It would be similar to me asking what the best sedan on the market it, without any concern for design, ergonomics, efficiency, reliability, etc....  Such a question becomes even more irritating if in fact I'm not shopping for a car at all.  This is what you are doing.

Myself, and others that post in this forum like to help people.  You give us a swing type, a ball flight, a preference for look and feel, a budget and many would love to talk about different product offerings.

Garbage in, garbage out in these types of threads.

somehow Nike and Taylormade that really came to mind when I made this poll.   Both manufactures sponsor a lot of PGA Tour Players.  When I  Think Phil, Callaway came to mind.  Think Martin Kaymer, Taylormade popped up.   Anthony Kim is a Nike Player.  And a lot of Titleist players.

I wonder if any PGA Tour player uses MacGregror anymore.

Maybe not at the professional level, since they're not sponsoring anyone, but one could argue that Rocco Mediate could put a set in the bag.

You should read about PING. They've been around for a while and are played by both the current British Open champion and #1 player in the world (according to the OWGR).

Regarding your threads, there are some fluff ones in there out of the 130+ you've started, but I must confess, I made up the "How much do you bench" to illustrate a point. Carry on.

I'm surprised PING is not mentioned, and the only option I can check is 'Other'.  So 'Other' and specifically 'PING' would be my choice.  Mainly because they have contributed so much to golf and they are probably the most copied company out there.

  • First to really bring CB and game improvement clubs to the market. (Not to argue someone might have come out with it first, but PING really introduced it to the masses.)
  • Fitting for players of all shapes and sizes.  The ping color code was one of the first to really make custom lie angles available to the masses.
  • The blade 'anser' style putter.  Now that the pattent has expired there are nothing but copies out there.  Even though so many modifications can be made to make that style putter something different and newer. (I.E. Scotty Cameron with the customized weights and milling process, TaylorMade with the white ghost series, Nike with the method putter and poly face... at the end of the day they are all based on a perimeter weighted design orginally thought up and brought to market by Karsten Solheim.

That's why I play ping and will continue to do so.  I like Mizuno as a close second because the Mfr. in the USA in my home state and they stay true to the forged blade market.  More than anything I like to see companies find, support and drive a cause they believe makes the golf world better.

Then why would you even post this? Just another useless thread if you're taking nothing from it. I apologize for trying to help you out.

Nobody makes their irons in the U.S. anymore, I don't know that Mizuno ever has.

    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      Here's some more below about the lowest you might expect - even on an easy course. I think this is largely true, but pros don't tend to play a lot on 'easy' courses so there doesn't seem to be even much anecdotal stuff. The quote below describes what's considered the 'perfect round'. I guess you could also consider a 'go-for-green' perfect round where you also hit all the par 5's in two and one-putted those for eagle for a 'go-for-green perfect' score of 50. Obviously the likelihood of doing this in a single round defies the essence of golf, but it's a good a hard theoretical lower limit that probably depends more on the par than the course rating. Likely the odds grow exponentially as the percentage of birdied / eagled holes rises. I think we can discount albatrosses as a 'perfect round' option. Most tournament pro scores don't get below 56 and 59 with about an 80/20 rule separating the more frequent 59s from the 58's. That's 4-5 strokes (assuming par 72) over the 'perfect round' and 8-9 over the 'go-for-green perfect round', each of which represent grabbing about 75% and 61% respectively of the potential shots under par realistically available. I suppose a short par-4 would add another potential eagle opportunity, but we'll discount that as I'm not sure how universal they are. The lowest tournament round was 55 (par of 71) by one single golfer out of how many total tournament rounds by pros and plus HCP amateurs over the years? So while 55 is humanly achievable it's super rare and likely represents the lower limit of any possible likelihood. That would put the absolute lowest threshold around 17.8 below the course rating (72.8) and 16 below par. So there's a lot of room to go below even a low course rating or par of 70. I don't think the expected scores would get too squished and the distribution would still likely be normal in shape. The thing that is probably unrealistic is how narrow the range of expected scores is. The field is extremely consistent, but I think a single individual player (whose average score is the same as the field) will have a score variance significantly larger than the field. I think the mode likely stays the same while the distribution flattens / spreads out more into the tails with a little more probability to both go low and high and less certainty of shooting within a stroke or two of the mode / most likely score.  
    • Difference in These Putters Besides Price?
      My mind is made up, don't confuse me with facts! Someone beat me to it, but there are obvious differences in the appearance of those two putters. The most obvious is that the alignment marks don't align! And the mark on the instep (if that's what it's called), looks like it was hacked in with a machete or maybe a cold chisel. Never mind that it looked like it laid in a barn for 10 years! Hey, I'm a senior and retired, so I'm always on the lookout for a bargain, but I refuse to buy cheap crap just because it's cheap. I remember a radio show I heard years ago where the discussion was about value vs cost. A woman called in and said she didn't have a lot of money, so she couldn't afford to buy "cheap". The host asked her what she meant. She replied that buying cheap stuff that does not perform and wears out early is more expensive in the long run than buying top quality goods that do the job and will last! Admittedly, they weren't talking golf equipment here, but the idea is the same.
