Are you a a good ball striker? Do you need some forgiveness? Are you looking for a workable set or no? Do you need a higher ball flight? Lower? We need more information to help you in your question for new sticks.

Okay maybe try a set with a small cavity or if you want a blade. If you want a small cavity I would suggest the Cleveland CG Red's, Titleist AP2's, or MacGregor MT Pro's. If you want blades try the Cleveland CG Tour's, Titleist ZM's, Nike Forged Blades. But one thing I would like to say is you should get over to a store and hit a bunch of irons and pick the ones that you like the most, and also get fitted for at-least the shaft flex.

Try multiple brands, just because it has a nice cleveland logo on it, does not mean it is right for you

If you really like Cleveland and are in the market for a slightly used set, I'd consider the Cleveland CG2. These are small cavities and they are very workable. I don't really try to work mine much (mainly high,low and the occasional hard draw), but they have very little offset and an extremely soft feel - even with DG Gold shafts. They definately have a players' look at address. You could get a great deal on these if you could find a good used set. I've never hit the CG Reds but I'm guessing they would be about the same club in the newer lineup.

At 14, and without knowing any of your financial concerns if any, i would highly recommend a very good used set vs. new. You can save yourself $200+ and get a very good quality set. Really try to find a good store or proshop and try as many as you can. This will give you a good feel for what is out there. Good Luck!

Any other opinions?

From what I've been reading in this forum and everywhere else on the net, the Mizuno MP-57's have that playability, but also forgiveness.

I tried them in the store and they are amazing. My neighbor plays the MP-60s and he's about a 2. Mizuno also came out with the MP-52s which maybe worth taking a look at. But if you want to work the ball more, MP-57s. e

Taylor Made r-7 or MP-57's if you have money that is... If you REALLY want to work your irons, find a good set of MP-33's on ebay. $250 tops. sweetest blades ever made...

I had to get new irons as an 11 handicap as a 15 year old (my Seve Slazenger's hand-me-downs were snapping in 2!) - I considered blades and could sorta hit them but some good advice was given to me - If you're going to come down in the handicap stakes - get something middle of the road first, and if you get to 5 handicap, try blades if you want. Others will disagree but I took that advice and it was the best way to lose shots for me.

Anyway - I'd be looking at AP2's, MP62/57, Ping i10, CG Reds, TM R7TP - boardering on players irons but room for forgiveness. When you get halfway to scratch, maybe go for a players iron or blade (but remember you don't have to!)

This year I purchased the Bridgstone J33's and love them. Awesome irons at a good price

You could go with ZM, mp-67, or mp-33 if you want a blade or if you want more forgiveness try mp-57, mp-60, mp-52, mp-62, ZBs, or ap2s. Hope this helps good luck.

Taylormade TP irons, and the Callaway X-forged. What about a blended set like the Titleist ZB?

    • We can turn this into a drinking game, anytime Trump says "Believe me," take a shot!  It's going to be a looong night!
    • Thanks for the interest and suggestions.  I've found a place in San Diego that has coffee from around the world. It is located in the downtown area in Barrio Logan (Logan Heights). It is called Cafe Moto. They have a back room where all the machinery is kept and the coffee is ground on the premises.You watch from an observation area through a glass wall.  You can buy it in small packages or up to 5 pound bags, whole bean or custom grind.  They also sell just about everything imaginable in the way of grinders, french presses, mugs, coffee makers, utensils. Out on the streetside, is a very small retail type coffee shop. Its a neat experience visiting. 
    • interesting analysis on fivethirtyeight.com about the impact of debates on polling and the eventual winner.   http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/trump-may-have-more-to-gain-from-the-first-debate-than-clinton/ Debates are usually interesting because so much pressure is on the candidates to not screw up.  
    • I don't really think about how fast the group in front of me 'should' play - I'm only concerned that they are keeping up with the next group (2some, single, 4 some - doesn't matter).  It's an interesting take on it - but I don't think I'd want to do that, I don't want to play someone else's game and I'd like people to not try and play mine. it worked out.  glad you got through and could play at a pace more in line.  I know slow pace can really affect my game.  I usually try to find a course (I look at the signup) and try to find more empty courses just so I can play at a crispy pace.  Else I have to find things to keep distracted between shots.  which stinks blue skies - you seem to sincerely really want to figure this out and not just get internet validation - I think that's cool
    • 3 rounds this weekend.  Including 2 on Sunday with courses I've never played before both gems.  The second a last minute Hot Deal I walked in on. Driving - I've been on fire.  From Hole 16 last week through the first round on Saturday Plus 3 'bonus' holes on Friday (replayed a par 3 because it was slow and then went and played 10 and 11 again before the rain came in). I hit 31 Fairways  (including pars 3 I count if on the green or very near....this is just so I can keep count in a lazy way).  So unusual.  Friday's game is the very first time I've hit 18 of 18.  I think it payed off big.  by the 2nd half of the first round on Sunday, I started missing left a lot - clearly getting tired or unfocused.  You can see the FH hit stats just drop over the rounds (Gopher Hills I played back 9 first). And I found about 5 dozen golf balls scrounging around. This weekend was my 'zone' play, empty course, fast play and still able to go into the woods and scrounge.  Both Sunday games I came away with most of the balls, and still played both rounds in under 3 hours.  Fall play is great.
