Help me choose new irons - game improvement

7 posts in this topic

Hello everyone,

First post here on the sand trap, been reading here for awhile and have got some great tips.

I'm in the market for new irons and I've narrowed it down to three. Callaway Apex, Titleist AP1 and Taylor made speed blade.  I'd appreciate any opinions/differences between these three options, either personal or just golf course buzz. Thanks

Well,I just traded my 3 year old Mizuno MP 53's/steel shafts for PING G 25's w/ graphite shafts. I do not hit a high shot and hoping now w/ the PINGS that I might be able to launch the ball higher.( I went for 2 lessons w/ Mike Breed from the Golf Channel and he noticed that I close down on my irons as well as my woods.)...I just have to trust my swing looking at what looks like a VERY open clubface now.

welcome to TST...   while i dont know a whole lot about other golf club company's products when it comes to Irons...   i'd first and foremost would tell you to look at the Titleist's irons first...  Now JMO, but i feel that Titleist makes Irons more directed towards mid to low cappers..  since i do not think they make a SGI iron, and stick to Blades, MB's and CB's..

Now, i say this being a Titleist Iron set owner, ( 735cm's ) and i love them, they are a nice blend of CBs and MBs..

I've played Pings since the mid 80s, and I doubt I will ever change brands.

The Callaway X2 hot pro irons a very nice. I've had them for about a month or so. I'm very happy they feel very nice. They have a smaller head with a lot less off set then my g15's but they don't seem to be much worse on miss hits. They do have a bit lower ball flight but I hit the ball fairly high so it's probably a good thing. I actually am hitting them about 10-15 yards longer even though they have the same lofts as the g15's and are only a 1/4 inch longer. I'm probably getting the distance because I have a better trajectory. Good luck and let us know what you end up with.

Thanks mvmac for the review link. That's probably the least sugar coated review I've read on the apex irons. I think the stronger lofts will suit my game because I typically hit the ball high.
