Hey guys,

I think I am at the point where I would like a new set of irons.

I would like irons only, ( 3-pw ) as I am not a fan of hybrids. I went to the golf store and hit several hybrids to replace mine, but I just can't hit em, so I picked up some irons and can hit them much easier and cleaner.

I can now work the ball both left and right and get some spin, though not a lot. My handicap has also dropped a lot and would like to find some irons that would help me even more

I was looking at Nike VR Full Cavity's and Mizuno MX200, how are these? My budget sn;t much, $800 if I can sell my Slingshots for 200ish

Should I stick with the Slingshots until I drop to maybe a 7 handicap, or am I ready for something a but more advanced that I can get fitted at the same time.

i think that anytime you can be fitted to clubs you should do it. i switched to my AP2's when i was about a 12 ish handicap and i love them. if you think you can handle a better players club now then you should do it while you are getting fit so you dont have to buy another set of clubs as your ballstriking improves

If you like Nike, and since you're a 10 HDCP, take a look at the VR Split Cavity. I test hit them at a demo day last month, and had several good shots. Plus, the prices should come down due to new models coming.

The PW is 47*, which would mesh nicely with your 52* PB.

I have wanted to get fitted for the past few months, but I don;t really want to get fit for these Slingshots, and I have been told that they;re not really adjustable.

I would love the splits, but they're $1000 CAD

Ok, probably gonna go with Splits.

You know you can mix if you aren't sold on it, right? I'm about to pick up a mixed set of VR (probably a few FC and the rest TW). Be sure to go through the fitting - it's vital.

Now I have to buy my other half some flowers and convince her it is very important I have these.

Be sure to get her favorite kind of these!

FYI on the split cavities there was another thread talking about them a week or so ago. Apparently the blades are actually more forgiving than the split cavities. Shanks-a-Million can explain more, or you can do a search.

Good memory! Yes, I'm the one who started the thread, and Shanks provided the explanation to me.

    • A poll would be nice for this topic. Mine is standard 45.5”.
    • That's why I've got Nickent 3DX Hybrid irons, I have a 10 iron which works for me. Most sets of irons have 8" or more of loft gap between the 9 and the wedge, it's ok if your good enough to hit a half'ish or climb into the Sandiron but I'm not. I'm not too bad hitting a strong 9 8 7 etc but the wedges I'm more likely to hit skinny or fat, I think why there is so many wedges is all about the Money...
    • Above, or you could also make yourself a set of homemade speed training aids, instructions are all over the internet.
    • Day 202.  This evening, I spent ten minutes hitting balls.  I noticed my rehearsal swings weren't getting to where I expected and that my front arm was folding almost at setup.  I wonder if this was the issue yesterday?  I will have to pay more attention going forward.  By the way, I say "the issue yesterday" as if I hit the ball horribly.  Other than the first shot O.B. (which was also my first shot of the day -- range was closed), I played quite well, beating the 10 handicap mark on strokes gained by nearly a full stroke, and if we ignore the opening O.B. (which I maintain wouldn't have happened if I had been able to hit a few balls to warm up -- yes, it still counts of course), I'm under my handicap in SG:D for the day, too.
