So in my previous post I mentioned that I was getting back into the game, I was looking at getting lessons, and I was just starting to research clubs. I am a high handicap with not much time put in the game or technique. While looking through Facebook marketplace the other day I came across a set of Cleveland TA3 Form Forged irons being sold locally. They have some cosmetic wear, but seem to be in decent shape and the owner just put Winn Dri Tac grips on them. I currently have a set of Northwestern Tom Wesikopf irons so these would definitely be an upgrade.

My concern is that I'm doing the same thing that I did before, randomly find a set of irons with NO idea what would be a good fit for my game and skill level. I have been itching to get a different set of irons for a long time but I don't want to buy these just because, also I have read that the Cleveland TA series are not the most forgiving irons.

Thoughts?

According to MPF they are awful for a high handicapper.

Sounds like a random purchase that wouldn’t make much sense.

Those TA3s were sweet. However,

1. They are not forgiving, move forgiving then the TA1s, but still need to bring a swing to use them.

2. They are almost 20 years old now, so I wouldn't pay more than $50 for the set with new grips.

If you are looking for Cleveland, would want to find a set of TA5s or TA7s for more forgiveness. But there are plenty of forgiving irons out there that are newer, more forgiving, and still relatively cheap.

Just what I was afraid of. Thanks for the advice.

Not looking Cleveland specifically, like I said just itching to get out of my irons. I appreciate the advice, definitely NOT going to make this purchase.
