Which irons?

Recommended Posts

Cilly15    0
I'm an 18 handicap and only 15. I didn't play much in the latter half of last year due to a broken wrist. I've started playing again recently and my irons have hardly any forgiveness. They're a set of Spaldings I got from my dad. I'm lookin into new irons. I play a high slight fade naturally but don't have problems shaping it the other way when needs be. I'm looking at the TM Burner 2.0 irons and the Cobra S3 Max as well as the Nike Pro Cavitys and the Callaway RazR. Wind isn't much of a problem in inland Ireland so I enjoy launching the ball high. I'm wondering which of these sets or other iron sets would be best for me. My preference would be a cavity with a thinnish sole and topline. I'm 6foot and the clunky fat clubs are always hit fat with me.

They are all great clubs and all do pretty much the same thing. The burners and the S3 max might have stronger lofts, but that might be the only difference. The Nike Pro Cavity probably has the thinnest topline. I know someone who has these and he thinks they are great. They are progressive so they are a little thicker in the long irons and a little smaller in the short irons.

Thanks. I've hit all the clubs and I'm getting a solid hit from each of them every time I hit them. I was just wondering which ones would be better and some more experienced people would recommend!

I would echo bhp said.  The nike's are great clubs and the progressive system is a great way to mask forgiveness in the irons that you will need forgiveness in most.

If you are a high hitter naturally with the old spaldings definately get a shaft fitting (get one regardless) that way you will be able to get your optimum trajectory.

I can STRONGLY reccomend the new Wilson Staff Ci11's. The new line of clubs shows the company is serious about their clubs, and all of their offerings this year are top of the line clubs.

If your looking to go cheaper, you can find a set of 15's cheap, or even g10's. Very forgiving clubs. I hated the topline on my G10's, dunno what the 15's are like.

    • I started my son playing golf when he was 4 yrs old. Now he's 14 and 5'10. He's play'd in a youth program, local youth tournaments, and summer camps up till 2 years ago. He had been playing club travel basketball for the past 2 years. He wanted to start playing again, but he'd grown out of his junior clubs. So I bought him a used set of Callaway X-18 iron and some Callaway woods. We started going to the range a couple of weeks ago. He's had one lesson with his long time youth golf coach. He's hitting a nice draw, but just raw potential. We played a twilight round yesterday, and he surprised me. He realized all the sudden how much power he has with a driver in his hands. He started slicing his drives but keeping them in play. He even out drove me on a few holes. He was hitting greens, but his putting was all over the place. We came to a 170 yd par 3 that's over a deep ravine. He walks up to the tee, drops his ball and hits and 8 iron. He hit it pin high 10' right of the pin. I hit 7 iron short of the green, and bogied the hole. He par it:)  It's so much funner for both of us playing golf together vs. watching him play basketball and me yelling at him. 
    • No one has ever said golf was fair. Golf is the most frustrating sport I have ever played. But isn't that what makes us come back? 
    •   I've been Playing Golf for: 3 years seriously
      My current handicap index or average score is: 37
      My typical ball flight is: right to left or a heavy hook
      The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Anything with a hybrid I am trying to copy Moe Norman's swing within reason.  I have a lot of physical limitations in the area of coordination, balance and flexibility.  My hands shake in a fairly small way, but still 24-7.  The reason I have chosen the Moe swing is because based on everything I have read, watched and studied the swing appears to have less moving parts and is based around what would appear to be good biomechanics.  I have with an Instructor from the Graves Golf Academy who I have worked with and have several of their DVD's and training aids.  I now just need to put the pieces together.     I also use a Biomech Acculock Putter  in order to control my hand shakes on the green.  I am hoping to use both these tools to make my game both more repeatable and more consistent.   My stats are available here: https://www.gamegolf.com/player/wpgstriker I will try and post a video tomorrow and other videos as I go through the learning process for this swing.  I understand that many people don't care for Moe's swing and that's fine, but that is the one I am going for. For at least the next 12 months I am committing to it.  If you want to join me on this journey please be welcome.  If you have questions about the swing or Moe please throw them at me.  I would love to discuss.     Videos:   
    • The fickle winds of fate. F**k you leaf.  
    • I'm 6'7. Walking into a golf shop, looking at all those nice new irons and knowing that you'll never be able to play most of them really sucks. You can only look at the best forged irons. So Mitzuno blades (which I have), or a muscle back modified blade. That's it! 6 degrees upright puts tall guys in no mans land. Super upright swing too. Hitting a draw is pretty hard. High fade is my shot. I've got over 35 years of dealing with it. I would say long heavy arms don't help anything. Let's not even get into size 15 shoe designs on the clearance rack:)  I can hit long balls, but it's always been awkward to hit my short irons a solid distance. I tend to play a 3/4 swing for accuracy. Hit my head on the roof of the golf carts all the time.
