2 irons

9 posts in this topic

I've got a set of Callaway x-24 4-PW and a RAZR 3H but want a 2 iron similar to my irons, does anyone know if they make a 2i x-24? And if not, what 2 irons would you suggest?

Maybe I don't understand the OP, but you have a 3h, As in a 3 hybrid?  If that is the case why do you want a 2 iron which will be harder to hit then a 3 iron that you do not carry?

You can check at http://golfsmith.com ,they have a great selection of clubs and you can purchase individual irons from them.

Yeah my iron set didn't come with a 3 iron, and when I got them I wasn't too good with long irons, but I've got a lot better and would like more distance off the tee (driver is a work in progress). But thanks for the link.

I don't think they made a 2i for the X-24's but they did for the X-20's and X-18's and you can purchase a 2i for the Razr X Forged's.

I would look into getting the 3 iron first and see how you hit it, you can add a 2 iron down the road if you feel it is beneficial to you.  Keep in mind very few professional tour players play with 2 irons because of how hard they are to hit.  Many players struggle with long irons and that is why manufatures created the hybrid clubs.

I have a 2 iron. I put it in my bag when im playing certain courses with tight fairways and shorter holes. I only ever use it on the tee though. I prefer a hybrid to a long iron on turf, but on the tee, give me the iron any day.

123Putt ,

The X24 Hot irons came and went fairly quickly. The "hot" designation likely came because the model had the strongest lofts of any X-model irons to date.

X20 4i = 24*

X22, X22 Tour, FT 4i = 24*

X24 Hot 4i = 22*

The 4i is the longest club on the X24Hot spec sheet. Your Hot 4i is the strongest one in the X family, so if you can hit it you'll get good distance. If you really want a 2i, try to find one for the X18 or X20. Stay away from XForged 2i (all versions), as you need really high clubhead speed to get the ball up with it (due to head design).

Your 3H should give you distance equal to or better than a 2i, and be more reliable for the average golfer. (Unless you're like my brother, who is a wizard with the 2i. He shoots in the high 90s, but has drilled a marvelous 2i ever since he was 14 years old.)

Note: My old MacGregor 2i from my younger days was 21* in loft. In a manner of speaking, you have a 2i disguised under #4...

I've got a Hogan Apex Plus 2 iron and let me tell you its a pain to hit. I don't think I've gotten it more than 10 ft off the ground. My 2 hybrid however is one of my favorite clubs. I'd recommend looking into getting one as opposed to an iron.

Thanks for the responses guys.


Motown - there's an old set of Lynx clubs in my garage that has a 3i in it that I've been using at the range which I can hit pretty well, there's also a 2 iron in that and I can get good connection, it's just that those clubs are a lot heavier than mine and I don't want to have to get used to 2 different weighted clubs, so looking for something lighter.


Apoc - I get what you're saying, I'd only ever use it off the tee. There is such a better contact and feel off the ground with a hybrid.

WUTiger - that's interesting, I didn't know that! It explains why I've been hitting my 4 off the tee pretty far then. As for my 3H distance, I can average around 220. In fact I played an entire round yesterday teeing off with that and shot +10, it really helped being on the fairway ;)

Thanks for all the tips gents, I'll get looking into x-18/20s.

    • How do I organize a charity tournament to be a raging success?
      26 and a stroke? Holy smokes. Very sorry to hear that.  I have no idea how to organize a tournament but I have played in my share. The best ones are scrambles where you can organize your own team. The outcome has rarely ever mattered to us as long as we were well fed. Find a local restaurant (usually a bbq place) that wants to help you out and give a discount for advertising and spend your money there. Everyone will love to come for a good meal. Some nice prizes and maybe a raffle with some local companies offering you something if you are able to convince them it is worth it to give something to the cause.  Another thing I have seen work well is a silent auction at the end with donated items. I donated airline miles of which I have tons and 100,000 miles went for $205. Free gift for me and the cause got $205. 
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Haha - I get a couple of reputation points for a post and then go and have a blow up hole. Good drive, left myself 145 in down hill (8i), aimed #deadcenter, pulled 2 shots 25 yards left out of bounds, made 9 (+5) in a 9 hole round of (+11). A better way to avoid blow up holes - play stableford!

      Come on now, that's a bit uncalled for in Bernies case.  His political ideals might be way left, but he is at least honest and virtuous.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      I'll have to examine your other post closer. That's a good point to consider about the expansion to Continental Europe. Largely explains the poor showing of UK & Ireland in the 60's with many top tier European players not eligible. But considering the 200 million U.S. population base to 63 million in the U.K. & Ireland at the time, the latter did surprisingly well if population base was all that matters. IMO an established competitive golfing culture matters in producing elite players too. Those same European players excluded from Ryder Cup were always eligible for the Majors. The Ryder Cup is also a limited field event. It concentrates the 12 top players of the European Tour. From what I've read, depth of field is still stronger for the 'typical' PGA event, though some non-major Euro events are now stronger than some of the 'minor' PGA events. That is a significant change in Euro competitiveness from the 60's. To some extent that 30% drop sounds like it could be due to simply more international players occupying slots in the fields. If the period you mention covers when majors started to use OWGR for automatic qualification that has some not insignificant inherent issues in terms of strength of field. Having a guaranteed start rather than having to qualify would certainly make for an easier decision to travel to the event. But I'm not arguing against the policy decision facilitating international competition with a little points boost just trying to point out that field strength may not have been as weak in Jack's day as you seem to think. Compared to his peers, which is really the only thing I think you can do without speculative nuance I agree there's no question he's the best golfer. I'm really just arguing that standouts of their caliber (so many more wins so many more majors) than typical players among already elite fields are so rare, that I expect they both represent near the achievable human pinnacle in golf talent, which I don't think really differs within a few generations. The nuances of comparison across eras is interesting to me so I'll debate relative points, but I'm against arguments undervaluing Jack's achievements against 'weak fields'. They both faced very stiff competition.   I'm not dissing Jack. I think his achievements are amazing. I also think the same of Tiger's record. IMO winning percentage per start in the Majors is a very significant stat and Tiger has that in his favor (they are both top 10 and within ~ 2% of each other's number). That number is not the official one for Jack though, I truncated his Major starts to end at age 47, which I think is a reasonable cutoff for competitiveness. If Tiger competes as long as Jack did his major win % (up to age 47) might stay about the same, increase, or decrease (more likely), but he certainly won't match the 18 Majors if he doesn't get like 22+ more major starts between now and age 47.

      Typically more bounce (or a "healthy" amount of bounce) helps in any condition.
