Component or Used Brand Name Irons?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So I just sold my irons in order to have some money for new ones. I am kind of an iron snob and only like 1-piece forged irons. They can be muscle back or cavity back. My issue is that the irons I like are all very expensive. Therefore I have looked at used irons and the Maltby TE forged irons.

 

I have had used irons in the past, but always sell them as find myself wishing I had a brand new set that was all mine. This may be because I have not found the perfect used irons or just the fact that I have a weird thing about things being new when I buy them.

 

Do you guys think that I should go with the Maltby heads (which I have already read good things about) and pick my own shaft and grips or buy a set of brand named used heads and pick my own shaft and grips, or buy a set of used irons?

Maltby, Hireko, Monark, Pine Meadow are all good sources - buying a used OEM set and re-shafting is good too.

Component clubs can be just as expensive as name brands, so it's really a matter of getting what you prefer.  There are a lot of used clubs out there, check Global Golf, eBay to see if you can find the combination of heads and shafts you like.

Yeah I think I am going to stay the used route but just be more picky about the shafts than I have been.
