Re: which iron will u recommend for beginner?

I would say either the TM or the Ping G10.

I've read a lot of good reviews on the TMs.

For a beginner, I wouldn't go for the pricey stuff. The person could decide they hate the game the first day.

Re: which iron will u recommend for beginner?

I just got the TM 2007 RAC OS and i love them, their a very forgiving club for a beginner and have helped me with some of the shots that i might have either hooked or sliced with a TP or Blade iron.

Go with the G10, they are the best club for a beginner.

Re: which iron will u recommend for beginner?

The Adams a3's are worth checking out...

http://www.adamsgolf.com/idea_a3_irons.htm

they include a 3 and 4 hybrid as you mentioned, and Adams hybrids are some of the best around.

The Nickent's are also solid, and make nice hybrids.

Of course, I suggest hitting a number of clubs and buying what fits your game and is appealing to you.

Re: which iron will u recommend for beginner?

Hey honestly i think the club of choice has to be the Ping Eye 2's the same ones tim herron still plays. They are the best beginner set ever made and also the best set ever made

Re: which iron will u recommend for beginner?

Haven't heard much about the others, but I have heard great things about the new G10's and I have personally hit the TaylorMades, which are outstanding beginners clubs as well. Take a look at Callway's Big Bertha line if ya get the chance too.

Re: which iron will u recommend for beginner?

I think for any beginner as such would be to shell-out a decent amount of money on some quality Over sized clubs.

Oversized clubs are great, as they offer forgiveness and as the player develops, the quality of the club will allow the irons to stay with the player for a couple of years. Rather than getting a new pair of tour clubs and not being able to hit them consistently.

Look for (scond hand or new) Big Berthas, Ping G's or EYEs

anyone agree?

Re: which iron will u recommend for beginner?

I definitely agree with you on this one. Starting off with a good set of forgiving clubs will help you in the long run. It will also help in that when you start having issues, you know its your swing, and theres no need to blame the equipment ;) But yes as you said marpr, Callaway's Big Berthas are splendid beginners irons, as are most Pings.

Yes, my coach's daughter who plays at about a 2 handicap and plays college golf just got some G10's (her dad, my coach is sponsored by Ping)

Re: which iron will u recommend for beginner?

All those in your poll are game improvement irons. You are not looking at super game improvement irons? PING's rapture, TM has R7cgb, Mizuno's is MX950. These irons are chunkier, feel less precise, but are more forgiving. There are a couple great deals going on now, with Cobra S9 and Mizuno MX900. Both last year's model, but are great irons. They are now hundreds less than what it was last year.

i know about S9, but also heard few bad review. that why never take into consideration. i try not to look for muscle back club as it will affect long term playing, am i right to say that?

never really go in detail of the rapture. maybe will have a look

as for mizuno, i really know what is the difference, but mx 25 had good review.

Re: which iron will u recommend for beginner?

I have had very good results with my Titelist DCI 762's. I know they aren't on your list but it maybe something to think about.

absolutely!

i think the next thing you need to worry about (once you've purchased some great clubs) is shaft flex.

I suggest going for a steel shaft (stay away from graphite unless you swing quite slow), if your quite strong and swing fast, go for a stiff flex.

There are many great 2nd hand stiff flex iron sets out there. This is because stiff flex players are generally mid to low handicapers who change their clubs every 1 or 2 years.

Ebay is great for clubs. or Callaway Pre Owned website too.
