I strike my irons pretty well and usually tend to hit them high.
I have swung the Callaway Razr black iron, the Razr tours and the taylormade rocketblades....I kinda liked the Razr blacks.
Any feedback or tips to which irons i should scope out?
Thanks a bunch!
I am a 16,1 after 18 months or so and as stated in my own thread have been looking for an upgrade on my burners. I went for the fitting today and found that the MP-64's were absolutely beautiful to play with and would def recommend them based on my feeling this morning.
I tried the I20, AP2, JPX 825 Pro and the MP-64's.
The I20 was lovely and easy to hit with good distances the only problem was that, for me, it did not seem to give the feedback that I was looking for and did not seem to add enough to justify the change from the Burners. It was certainly better but I got the feeling that I would want to change again a year down the line.
The AP2 just did not work for me at all. It looks lovely and was one I expected to really like but the weighting in the head did not work for me in the slightest.
Next I tried the MP-64, which I thought would be too much club. I soon understood the "buttery" feel that everyone talks about but also felt the feedback that I have always been missing. However, importantly always made solid contact with great dispersion in the shots. I certainly lost distance at the start but by the end was hitting 130 carrys rolling out to a reported 160 which was equal or longer than my burners and felt that there was easily enough forgiveness in them for me not to be scared even with my 16 handicap.
I did try the 825 Pros but after the MP-64s they felt hard on all but perfect shots and there was no way I could go any way other than ordering the 64's, hence I will be ordering 5-Pw in 64's and 3 and 4 in the H4's once the manager is back in house next week.
Definately go for a fitting and try a few sets out as everyone is different and it makes a huge difference.
