Should have mentioned my 4 is 21 degrees so more 3 than 4.

What irons did you have back in September with a 21° 4-iron? The Clevelands?

@Mike Boatright, your answer makes absolutely no sense whatsoever... It doesn't answer the question at all...

4 iron. Cobra 20 degrees. 

It might soon be a Cobra 3 iron for a pure driving iron. I hit the 4 iron very well, I might try a 3 iron for fun, fairways, and a few more yards for when the driver misbehaves.

I have a 4 iron as my longest iron.  I feel like my skill with the high irons is such that I'm just better off hitting my 5 wood a little shorter than I would trying to get a 3 iron to stick.

Driver: Taylormade r7

Fairway Woods: Taylormade Burner 3 and 5 woods

Irons: Taylormade r7 XD 4-PW

Wedges: Cleveland CG14 47*, 52*, and 58*

Putter: Yes! Tiffany

Ball: Nike One Tour (I found a box of these in my garage and they are great)

2 iron if we count a driving iron... it feels and sets up like an iron but has an extended sole and a graphite shaft. I carry a 3 iron as well which I used to use off the tee and into par 5's quite often. Both are very fun to hit.

In the bag:
Driver: R9 Supertri
3W: R9
3i-PW: Mizuno Mp-68
Wedges: Taylormade Racs
Putter: PING Redwood blade

USED to bag a 2 iron. Low stingers off the tee and off the grass in windy conditions. Now, it's a 3 iron with no hybrids in the bag. Hybrids tend to balloon on me no matter the conditions.

Longest iron in my bag is a 6 iron. My longer clubs are adjustable Driver, 3 FW, 3-4 adjustable hybrid and 5W,

3i. Mostly for long par 3s in the 185-195 range.  My best shot today was the 3 iron to about 10 -12 ft missed the putt but easy par, if only I hit my driver as straight ;-)

I was just wondering, what we were all carrying as our longest iron and why? I'll start, right now its 4i, but I have both 4i and 4h in the bag, at least until I get my wedges (50°, 54°, and 58°) then it will be 5i...

Currently, 10+ months since my original post starting this thread... It's a 5i. But some days it's a 6, others it's a 7, and still others it is a 3 or 4. It totally depends on how confident I am in the crucial transition zone on a given day. 

People (you guys included) probably think that I buy clubs all the time... I have 17 (not including different putters) I rotate in and out mostly a mix of hybrids/fairways vs irons.

@iacas, just wondered have you tested any of the hollow utility driving irons? I've heard (I have my Adams DHY Lumpy) the trajectory is lower than "traditional" hybrids.

I recently put the 4i back in the bag. I was usings 4h and 3h but never seemed to need the 3h. I hit my 4h 10-15 yards longer than my 4i. I like having the 4i for punch shots or keeping it low in the wind. My setup is Driver, 4w, 4h, 4i-gw, 54 & 58 wedges, and edel.

5i

I can hit the 4i, but the 4h goes the same distance and it's easier to hit.  Lately on windy days, I've been wishing for a 4i though.

I can't hit a 3i very consistently, so my skill limit is somewhere around the 4i anyway...

If I bought a 4i, I'd likely get a cavity back instead of extending my muscle back irons....

Almost the same line as I was thinking. I have a 3 iron because it came with the set.

The only time I use it is when I'm punching out from under a tree. Although I had a really sweet puncher in my club championship last week. 160-yarder to the green.

3i   Less dispersion than my hybrid although it goes a few yards less.   I generally don't have any issues hitting it off the deck.   Mizuno doesn't have a 2-iron for the set.   I find the clubs ok enough to hit to get one, if they had it, to play around with.   The 2-iron would be good for a number of places where I choke down on my 4-wood.

I do use it pretty regularly, getting out of trouble, 2nd shots on par 5's (sometimes 3rd or 4th shots:whistle:) and of the tee on par 4's. Probably one of the most used irons in my bag actually. A bit of an all-purpose club.
