I'm changing because I lost my 7-iron and looking for some new clubs, been playing them for a while. And a 3 iron in the set wouldn't be wrong

i loved the nike cci forged model make sure its the forged model though.thats the best cavity back ever imo.im partial to blades though and if you would like to try them i like the titliest 690.mb and nike forged blades not the victory red ones but the older ones.

Here are two reports on the Callaway X-Forged (2009 model).

Golf Digest, which uses 3 categories for classifying irons, (SGI, GI, Players) gives them positive remarks among entrants in the Player category; brother model the X22 Tour also got positive remarks in Player category.

Ralph Maltby, who uses six categories to rank clubs actually classifies the new X-Forged in Game Improvement (MPF = 621). This is actually a few point higher than the X22 Tour irons (MPF = 594). Maltby spoke positively - but did not gush - over both these irons. He advised golfers to try out both to find the differences between these clubs.

Check out these reports, and then test-hit the clubs. You have lots of shaft options... I liked the looks of the X-Forged, but I just don't have the swing for them. I hit the X22 Tour, but ended up getting used X20s (see below).

Ok thanks. Are the x-forged really so hard to hit?

You have a 5 handicap. For you, it's a question of which irons you will hit

best. You could probably hit X22 Tours or X-Forged, its a matter of which you like better/ how it fits your game preferences.

I think at your handicap you can play almost anything on the market so it all comes down to what you like looks wise and performance wise. If you're looking for something that is wallet-friendly I might suggest looking at the Forged Srixon I701s, they're on Edwin Watss for $400. I also heard the Mizuno MP57s are running for lower prices now that the new MP58s are out.

The Bridgestones are also worth checking. My personal favorite brands for irons would Mizuno, Srixon and Bstone hence my recommendations, but you should go hit everything and decide for yourself.

    • Hard to think of a more perfect iron shot from the rough. I guess you could ask to hole out but that seems a little greedy. Brave to even try the shot then it sounds like. Glad you were rewarded!
    • Some of DiMarco's missed putts were pretty timid efforts so that is why I described it as giving them away. He can say he misread them and that is true for some but others really were just poorly struck. It is not to say DiMarco handed the green jacket to Tiger on a silver platter but Tiger was very fortunate that DiMarco did not really capitalize on the chances he was giving himself. That said I agree it does not really take away from the case for Tiger's greatness. The post iacas linked to came off rather biased in tone so I more pointed this out to acknowledge that every Tiger victory was not a controlled cruise either. I think it just goes to show that winning a major is extremely difficult and even the greatest need some bounces to go their way sometimes. It is like that with many sports when played at such an elite level.
    • I played Richter Park a few weeks ago for the first time. It was nice, though not something I desire to drive two hours for. Playing Links at Union Vale again in a few weeks; that is a course that I don't mind the drive for. We could look at other central CT courses. Wintonbury Hills is really nice. I'm playing Gillette Ridge tomorrow, which is supposed to be similar. 
    • Jack's courses always seem to be like you have to always be calculating and many risk/reward decisions. It's harder to relax on his courses, imo.
    • Depending where folks come from, West Point Golf Course would be a nice location.
