You cant say thats due to the clubs though. The shafts may not be right for your swing and just because YOUR shots ballooned with those clubs doesnt mean that everyone's shots will.

Berthas have been a mainstain for hackers everywhere for years and G10s are stupid easy to hit. Bottom line, the OP needs to go and hit various kinds of irons and see what fits his game the best. Whats best for your game may not be whats best for his game.

im liking all these suggestions but how long did you guys wait till you got your next set of irons?

I played my cheap (~$2-300, don't recall exactly) starter irons until they started breaking. Broke the 3 and 5 irons right through the hosel on clean contact with a ball. Very odd. Decided at that point not to take chances with breaking another and hurting someone... It was after a couple dozen rounds of golf and a fair bit of practice, but spread over about 8 years with some long periods away from the game.

TWI,

We're basically in agreement. My remarks on BBs and G10s were cautionary. Other middle handicappers I have talked to have dumped BBs or G10s because they just got the ball up too high. Others, like you, really like the clubs. I meant to say, don't go out and buy BBs or G10s without testing them. Remember, the OP was having trouble with too much height on his irons, whereas his woods were OK.

I went from Adams A2 OS to Callaway Fusions. (4 left wrist surgeries to put it back together after I shattered it) my left wrist was very weak for about 4years.

I didn't need the offset anymore and the Fusions were like carving through Butter.

Bought new irons when I could finally hit the ball of the ground (this past june) with a $50 set I got from Dunham's. Did some research (i.e. reading reviews, forum discussions, etc), hit some different irons at my local golf galaxy, and bought a used set from ebay (beware of fraud). I guess I didn't get the advantage of being fitted, but I'll be using my set until I get my handicap down to under 20.

Mizuno MX-950s have shaved 30-35 strokes off my score, and there's more yet. (yes, I was THAT bad, I used to score in the 120's). They're amazingly forgiving, beautifuly feeling and guess what, I can still work them left to right and right to left.

I would go with a set of PING G10's.

Buy some used ones from a golf shop or Ebay(make sure the person/shop have a TON of reviews).

EVEN if teh color code does not fit you, PING will totally change the color(Fit) for you. They only charge $18 bucks to do this, so you can pretty much buy ANY G10's and get yourself fitted then send them to PING with 18 bucks to get them bent to what you need. GREAT way to save some money and get very very good quality clubs IMO

I'm gonna take someones recent advice and play with what I have until I'm ready to upgrade (which is now lol) or until they break. The ping g10 color code? Is that the lie of the club?

Trust me I'm no sure I'm not the only one who is dying to upgrade as soon as they get hooked on the game.

BTW, that's a GREAT avatar!

...whisper in my ear that you want some more and I...

If you haven't picked up the Incredibad album by The Lonely Island, its on iTunes, and you will not be disappointed. My favorite track is Santana DVX.

(Sorry to geek out AND go off topic)

Try the Mizuno MX range (MX200 or MX300 probably?). My friend used to have some Cobra SZ super game improvers, but much prefers his Mizuno MX200s! They are still quite forgiving but much better than the game improver irons... hope this helps!

    • Another not hopeless round of 93 with a lot to work on yesterday.  Fairways 5/14, Greens 5/18 and, 37!! (only one 3-putt) putts, with 6 doubles and a tripple. 5 balls in the water and not making a single putt outside 5 feet is not the recipe for success...  I definitely make a lot of good shots, but with 50% of my teeshots missing left (18% right) I know what I need to work on.   
    • Nice. I’ve got the second generation sensors as well, so I’d like to use them as long as I can. I’ve got a few putter sensors that have gone dead (I assume from the battery) that I can try this out on. 
    • Voted no. I think armlock putting looks kind of weird, especially the Zalatoris armlock claw stroke and Bryson's robotic motion, but I don't really care (I have a LAB DF 2.1, so it's not like my putter looks cool or anything). I don't see a reason to ban armlock as compared to the broomstick or belly putters which actually seem to have an anchor point.
    • Anyone gaming a set of these, I've bought a set of these irons off ebay. I'm feeling the difference between swinging my 6 iron and my wedge, want to try Brysons method of one swing. If you've tried AGX I'd appreciate your feedback, thanks..
