Which brand of irons would you play and why?
If Price Were No Object...
Golf Gear mentioned in this thread:
I would go with the Titleist 909 d2 with non stock shaft, would follow with the 909 fairway 3 wood with non stock shaft, not sure of the Hybrids possibly Titliest 910h, not real sure about irons possible would try some GI Mizzuno's or possibly stick with Callaway and have better steel shafts put on X22s or some Razrs. Would try a Scotty Cameron Putter and would have a Sun Mountain 14 way stand bag. Would keep the Bridgestone e6's but would try some Pro V's out.
I'm kind of bored with Drivers so happy with my old TM r7 CGB Max.
My favourite club is my 3 wood, a Tour Edge Exotics XCG 3 with 13 deg loft. I really should use it more often off the tee. It's delightful though off the deck for second shots into par 5's.
You'd have more chance of making it happen if you spelt his name properly.
An excellent choice - a long history of championships and very simple and elegant design. I've owned quite a few sets of blades, representing most of the big brand names. The best "feeling" irons were and are my vintage Mizunos (hands down really) with Hogan and MacGregor being hit or miss depending on the vintage. When I tried to get into Wilson Staff blades, it was at a time when I was struggling with my swing, so I went another direction. The Mizunos really worked for me, but I think it was a coincidence, as I made the proper swing changes at about the same time.
Anyway, if money was no object, I'd probably stick with Cleveland. Their new tour blades really look (and feel) right to me. They're not the silkiest "feeling" (that would be something from Mizuno or Adams), but they go where I aim and I really like their grinds.
+1 for Scratch and Miura with a slight edge to Scratch because of Don White and I would double up on irons 1-6 with both blades and cavities. Not that I deserve these irons even if I had the "scratch" multiple pun intended.
