Re: Have you ever hit a 1-Iron?Yes, at my local club, the Pro has a Lynx 1 iron or something like that. I don't think it's that hard to hit, in fact I liked the way I was hitting it, but I will no change it for my 3 wood.

Re: Have you ever hit a 1-Iron?Yes, I have always carried a 1 iron.
Wilson staff really hard to hit consistantly like most old blades.
McGregor JNP really nice club just changed when I changed iron set.
Tzoid Pro. with a S400 Dynamic Gold Tip Stiff 1 inch long. What an unreal club. Mizuno no longer offers them. I would have love the 1 Iron in the MP58 design.
I have tried to replace it with the Cobra Baffler 18 degree with a stiff Graphite but really need to back off to a 3/4 clubhead speed to keep from hooking it. I have a natural draw.
Re: Have you ever hit a 1-Iron?
As you can see by my avatar pic, I have a 1984 Hogan Apex PC 1-iron, part of a 1-E set purchased new after my 1972 Apex set was stolen :-(. Back when my swing was in better tune, I used to hit it all the time for controlled tee shots on narrow / layup holes, and second shots on par 5s. Very hard to hit if your swing is the least bit off, but when you're playing well, hitting a Hogan 1-iron on the button is as good as it gets. Hit poorly, it's as bad as it gets. Hit it well with a little draw and a hurricane has a hard time changing the ball flight. I still play with the 3-E today - they're what I grew up with and other clubs I've tried just feel like a compromise and look like one too. The feedback is very clear, good and bad. You can tell exactly where you hit the ball on the club-face - a groove low, a hair on the toe, anything off-center registers loud and clear. I'm sure this costs me a few shots - anything not flushed loses significant distance - but I play for the good shots.
Don't use it now because it doesn't have a grip.
