What are some good Forged "Muscle Cavity" Type irons

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at the Taylormade TP MC irons, as well as the Nike VR Split Cavities, but I don't know many other clubs that are forged and sort of have the same look/feel as those clubs.

I am buying on ebay, trying to get a set of irons for $400 or less.

Any suggestions?

I'm selling a set of Titleist 735.CMs on eBay right now. I love them, I just don't swing fast enough with my irons for stiff shafts. Other than that, they're a dream. Not sure if that's exactly what you're looking for, but they are a very quality set. I'll send you a link to the craigslist ad I have, I have more pictures on there.

Hogan Apex FTX's are nice sticks if your swing is decent.

I hadn't planned on selling mine (which are in hibernation in my basement), but if you're interested PM me as I have a lefty set in great shape.

Just took a quick look on Ebay. For left handed forged muscle cavity iron sets under $400, I see lots of Titleist AP1 and AP2, Callaway X Forged, Nike VR pro cavity, The Callaway Razor X forged are going for just over $400

If you're serious, check out golfavenue4u (or something like that). A Canadian ebay seller. Tons of Canadians are lefty golfers and hockey players.

I was gonna say Bridgestone, but you are correct, no left handed clubs. What about Titleist?

OP: Buy these! If they were righty I would have already bought them at that price.

Thanks again everyone! I ended up getting a set of Taylormade TP CB's on Ebay for $400. I decided that a nice forged cavity back would still give me some forgiveness but have more feel than a traditional cavity.

    • I ordered a PING G400 LST Driver with a Tour 65 x stiff shaft back in August. I was told that it wouldn't even ship until October. I had hit the regular G400 head with the x-stiff Project X HZRDUS Yellow shaft at a demo day and liked it even though I had to adjust the loft as low as it could go (8°) and I still launched it too high with too much spin. I was told the SLT head along with the Tour 65 shaft would correct the issues so I took a leap of faith and ordered it. While I waited for my driver to arrive I have been playing the demo because I hit it really straight even though I lost some distance due to launch and spin. Fast forward to yesterday, my new G400 SLT driver arrives. I take it out to the range and the course to play a few holes. What a difference! Club designers must be geniuses. Now with the loft set at 8.5° I launch the ball on a great angle and it goes and goes without falling out of the air. I haven't hit it on the monitor yet but I can tell the spin rates are much better. I hit the new driver and the demo to side by side and the SLT goes a good 15-20 yards farther. I just find it amazing what they are able to do with these driver heads by just moving a little weight around here and there. It's also a huge reason to get fitting if you want to play your best.
    • That new chart is wacked.  I have the original on my PC at home. Arturo has it the way I understood it... " the dot refers only to the head in relation to the factory standard lie angle which is black" I was measured on my wrist to floor and that gave them the starting point of Black +1". I then hit some balls off the lie board with tape and that showed I needed to be a lil upright so they gave me Blue dot, standard length shafts but it still off a bit.  Grabbed Blue dot, +1" and I was hitting the ball and board good so that was what I went with.  Any of my other clubs I have gone with 1* upright and +1" on shaft length.   ***** Just found this so I thought I would add it to the post ***** " a well-known standard in golf is that each 1/2" added to the shaft length = a 1* more UPRIGHT lie angle" Don't know if it is 100% but wanted to share as it might help OP with his dilemma.
    • Guess I'm not going to win this argument, so can't see the rules changing anytime soon. Hopefully the new 3 minute searching rule and maximum score on a hole will speed things up, as I guess that's one of the main reasons for changing them? Agree that ideally, we should have the same rules as the pros, but they do have advantages when it comes to looking for balls, in the form of a travelling army of spectators and marshals. Anybody who has followed a wild hitting group round in the British Open will know what I mean.
    • There are, particularly with Ping, a rather large set of variables.  And a large number of part options.  PowerSpec irons, as I understand, are "hosel bent" to reduce the loft.  Probably a bad description of what is done on my part but it, apparently, utilizes the cavity indentation near the heal/hosel.    Imagine doubling the number of parts in a Ping demo area.  Actually.... that's probably what they should do if they are going to offer it.  Regardless, it's back to the fitter time I am afraid.   
    • My understanding is that the dot refers only to the head in relation to the factory standard lie angle which is black. For example, a green dot would be the head bent to be 2 degrees upright. However, if the club is longer or shorter than standard length it is up to you and your fitter to decide which color code you need now to attain the effective lie angle that you want.
