Have you gone to a brand-neutral iron fitting?

Wanting to purchase some new Irons,Considering Tour Edge Hot Launch,anyone have any feedback on these clubs?

Are you thinking about the C series or the E series? 

I've been known to put an E series 6 iron and 5 iron in my bag on occasion when I'm not hitting the ball work a pile of spit. 

The C series is almost as much help without looking like a hybrid. 

My experience with the Tour Edge Hot Launch Irons has been positive. I would say the only risk is that you may out grow them if you start playing really well. They are giant shovels at the end of a stick. So they are easy to hit, but pretty much one-trick-ponies. The other thing I'd suggest you consider is the C series is great off the fairway or off a mat, but it struggles out of the rough. It is literally just so big it hits every blade of grass and that can slow it down and or turn the head in the rough. The E series on the other hand had a sole that designed to cut through the rough and it actually works quite well off pretty much any lie. 

They aren't designed for feel or workability, they are designed to hit the ball high and straight and they pretty much do what it says on the tin. One caution, if you are a person who doesn't like hybrids, you won't like the E series.

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

I have heard, and read, similar comments.  I have a friend that started golfing last year and bought the E series.  He likes them, but he plays about 5 times a year and is lucky to shoot 120.

    • If you like Taylormade, they have produced GAPR clubs for several years now. They are not-quite-hybrids... but close. They come in Lo, Mid and Hi varieties which vary in how much they look like an iron. The Lo is almost a chunky iron. The Hi looks very hybrid-esque. The Mid is somewhere in between.  Since they've made them for a while now and come out with new variations on them every year, you can probably get a slightly used one at a pretty good deal. They change the color and tweak them here and there, but they aren't that much different. If money is no object go get fitted for one that gets you your 200 yards consistently.  If the GAPR doesn't work for you Taylormade UDI and DHY might be more your cup of tea. These are slightly more iron-y than the GAPR's.  Incidentally Ping also makes a similar product theirs is called a crossover.  Basically, all the big brands have something like this. Just search out Utility Irons and you should get plenty of options.

    • Nope. Miami Shores GC in Troy, Oh wouldn't be considered for a qualifier. Even from the tips, it's only a 68.6/116.  Great course for average hackers like me, but not a venue for bigger competitions.
