Question about Easy to hit lower irons.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hey all golf season is coming up right around the corner (time to end my 8 month long posting drought).  Lately I have been looking at updating my woods, and for the amount I use my 5 wood I was thinking about just replacing it with a 3 or 2 iron.  My current set is the Adams CB1 4-PW i have no problem hitting the lower irons but I really want to have a lower club then 4 to replace my 5 wood.

 

The only place that it looks like I can by individual irons is Callaway preowned.  And seeing how I won't be able to hit them before I buy them I am kind of looking for advice.

 

The reason I dislike hitting 5 wood from the deck is because of head size.  I am just not confident enough to get under the ball while still sweeping it off the fairway.  Anyways just looking for any suggestions you guys might have on clubs or reviews on 2 or 3 irons of older Callaways.

Umm, they've made these things this past decade called hybrids... Might want to look into them.

Well I suppose I shouldn't knock them I have tried them a few times wasn't a huge fan. My shots I found went too high.

Agree with the previous posts, I'd definitely recommend a hybrid. I've got an Adams Idea Tech V3 3 hybrid and I absolutely love it. Not too big of a head if that's what you're worried about and it hits great off the deck. You can also buy individual irons at Global Golf I believe if you'd rather go that route. I've bought clubs there before, very reputable.

I suggest you try a used or close out  hybrid. I like my Callaway Diablo Edge tour 18. I picked it up for 65 bucks new from Hurricane Golf.

See if you can find a Mizuno FLI-HI hybrid iron from circa 2010. Most common variety was 3FH with 21* loft.

 

Also, consider a player's cavity 3i with a flighted shaft. Flighted shafts give a little extra lift to long irons. Callaway Preowned offers a Razr X Forged 3i - with a PX 6.0 flighted shaft - for about $70.

Ya I was wondering what the x forged series were like for forgivability as I have never really hit one before.

 

Are all hybrids made with the same weight in the head? I have tried out a 909 hybrid and the head seemed really heavy.

Forgiveness would be better with a flighted shaft, because flighted gives more lift to longer irons.

 

As for hybrids, there's a lot of variety out there, just as much as in fairway woods. You just have to test them out. Hybrids with smaller heads will tend to get the ball up better than ones with deep faces.Smaller heads cut through the rough better, less resistance.

Ok so via an online ad I have an oppertunity to buy a Titleist AP2 712 3 iron.  Wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this or how easy/hard it is to hit.
