What irons should I get?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I am looking to buy a new set of fitted irons as I think I have outgrown my current set (I have to bend over too much for the club head to lie flat at address). Does anyone have any recommendations on which set to get for a high handicapper? Also, does anyone know any good sites that have user reviews for irons? Thanks!

Toe position at address means nothing. You need to hit them on a lie board to see if they are too upright. You can have them bent or have a club tech add length to the shaft. This is your most cost efficient option.

If you decide not to modify your current clubs, then visit a club fitter. Properly fitted game improvement irons from any major OEM will serve you well. Emphasis on properly fitted.

I would start here.

Wow, that is a great idea and I feel a little stupid for not thinking of changing the shafts. I was actually hitting at the range the other day, which I hadn't done for a few years, and the club head of my PW broke off and flew out into the range. So it's probably about time I changed the shafts anyways. I am a little low on funds right now too so this will be a great alternative. I will also see about hitting on a lie board too. Thanks again for the info.

While you're at it, you might as well get a fitting to make sure the length, lie, and shaft are right for you. Golf is hard enough. No sense in making it harder than it needs to be. ;-)

Thanks man! I'll do the fitting as well. From what I remember that was actually kind of fun. I'll let you know how it goes.

Like said above. After taking way to many years off from golf I have gotten back into playing. It took this advice and went to the local golf store. I had done my Internet research and had 3 sets of irons I wanted to try. After hitting all 3 and a couple others the fitter recommended I purchased a set that wasn't even on my radar. You need to buy what works for you and your budget.

Consider getting a fitting. Use your current set to get a baseline of how you're hitting the ball, and see what specs you might need to hit the ball better. Then, try different SGI irons to see which ones work best. While the clubhead design is important, a clubhead won't work very efficiently if you have it on the wrong shaft. If the shop has fitting carts, the fitting rep can put a 6i head on different weight and flex shafts to which ones work best for you.
