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?
Golf Gear mentioned in this thread:
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.
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.
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...
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.
