2 irons

9 posts in this topic

I've got a set of Callaway x-24 4-PW and a RAZR 3H but want a 2 iron similar to my irons, does anyone know if they make a 2i x-24? And if not, what 2 irons would you suggest?

Maybe I don't understand the OP, but you have a 3h, As in a 3 hybrid?  If that is the case why do you want a 2 iron which will be harder to hit then a 3 iron that you do not carry?

You can check at http://golfsmith.com ,they have a great selection of clubs and you can purchase individual irons from them.

Yeah my iron set didn't come with a 3 iron, and when I got them I wasn't too good with long irons, but I've got a lot better and would like more distance off the tee (driver is a work in progress). But thanks for the link.

I don't think they made a 2i for the X-24's but they did for the X-20's and X-18's and you can purchase a 2i for the Razr X Forged's.

I would look into getting the 3 iron first and see how you hit it, you can add a 2 iron down the road if you feel it is beneficial to you.  Keep in mind very few professional tour players play with 2 irons because of how hard they are to hit.  Many players struggle with long irons and that is why manufatures created the hybrid clubs.

I have a 2 iron. I put it in my bag when im playing certain courses with tight fairways and shorter holes. I only ever use it on the tee though. I prefer a hybrid to a long iron on turf, but on the tee, give me the iron any day.

123Putt ,

The X24 Hot irons came and went fairly quickly. The "hot" designation likely came because the model had the strongest lofts of any X-model irons to date.

X20 4i = 24*

X22, X22 Tour, FT 4i = 24*

X24 Hot 4i = 22*

The 4i is the longest club on the X24Hot spec sheet. Your Hot 4i is the strongest one in the X family, so if you can hit it you'll get good distance. If you really want a 2i, try to find one for the X18 or X20. Stay away from XForged 2i (all versions), as you need really high clubhead speed to get the ball up with it (due to head design).

Your 3H should give you distance equal to or better than a 2i, and be more reliable for the average golfer. (Unless you're like my brother, who is a wizard with the 2i. He shoots in the high 90s, but has drilled a marvelous 2i ever since he was 14 years old.)

Note: My old MacGregor 2i from my younger days was 21* in loft. In a manner of speaking, you have a 2i disguised under #4...

I've got a Hogan Apex Plus 2 iron and let me tell you its a pain to hit. I don't think I've gotten it more than 10 ft off the ground. My 2 hybrid however is one of my favorite clubs. I'd recommend looking into getting one as opposed to an iron.

Thanks for the responses guys.


Motown - there's an old set of Lynx clubs in my garage that has a 3i in it that I've been using at the range which I can hit pretty well, there's also a 2 iron in that and I can get good connection, it's just that those clubs are a lot heavier than mine and I don't want to have to get used to 2 different weighted clubs, so looking for something lighter.


Apoc - I get what you're saying, I'd only ever use it off the tee. There is such a better contact and feel off the ground with a hybrid.

WUTiger - that's interesting, I didn't know that! It explains why I've been hitting my 4 off the tee pretty far then. As for my 3H distance, I can average around 220. In fact I played an entire round yesterday teeing off with that and shot +10, it really helped being on the fairway ;)

Thanks for all the tips gents, I'll get looking into x-18/20s.

    • That looks nifty, but… it's only really going to be an option for awhile in some high-end places, I'm wagering. If it's a full range, you can of course see your ball flight. So the tracer itself is probably not that important, right? The points and games are another thing, kinda TopGolf-like.
    • That looks awesome! I hope that sooner or later all driving ranges will have that technology built into them.  Was it more expensive than a regular bucket of balls?
    • I didn't take it that way. I know the HGG quote, and that it's a way of saying "goodbye." That's not exactly "cool" though either: Mike tells you he's mad at you, I demonstrate that your impact conditions and backswing are worse, and you say "okay, goodbye." But yeah, I took it this way: That fits quite well since you keep talking about how you have to know and understand the whole system just to implement a piece, and about how your brain works that way, and so on. How I took the fish quote is pretty clear from the response, is it not? All that said, I apologize. I took it the wrong way. I reacted more strongly than I would have had I taken it the HGG way, and I'm sorry for that. Disagreement isn't intolerable at all. But you're not really disagreeing with anything, either… you're choosing to ignore things, and you seem to think that you're not being helped. You're wasting our time. Disagreement? At least there's discourse there. Ignoring? That's just a (small) slap in the face… Mike and I - and others - have given you a boatload of free advice. I can't speak for others, but I don't expect you to pay for anything, ever. When all else fails, play the victim card again? Anyone who has met @mvmac will tell you he's not quick to anger. So if you pissed him off, well, then more than likely you did something, and are not just some passive victim. P.S. You're likely getting better because you're hitting balls. You're learning how to make the flaws in your swing at least time themselves up right. You're learning to time your flip just right so that you can pick the ball off the ground without fatting or thinning it. You're learning how to sway your hips and drop your head back/early extend on the downswing so you can hit out a little bit despite being super steep (and you need a really closed stance to help you with that). You're getting better at making a flawed swing because you're repeating it often. You're lowering the ceiling on how good you can get each time you visit the range and don't practice properly, or practice the proper things. Your swing may actually be worse now than a week or two ago. We tried to help you - free, and by giving you much of our most valuable asset (our time) - and you instead pissed off one of the calmest people around and ignored the advice of many others, including me, who knows what I'm talking about. Then you chose to play the victim after a vague reference to fish, and took the easy out of saying "oh, you just don't like people who disagree." No, I don't like people who waste my time, but the solution on my end is very easy: I simply choose to stop wasting my time on them. I don't care if you disagree. I prefer it, really, so long as you're a worthy adversary. You? You don't stack up. We can't talk about some intricate part of the golf swing. Nor should you at this point, or possibly ever, because you're a golfer, not a golf instructor. That's all fine. But I can choose to stop giving you free advice, and spending my time doing it.  So if your goal is to have me ignore you from here on out, you've succeeded! :-) I'll spend my time helping those who appreciate it.
    • Did anyone make it to this?  I had some things come up and couldn't make it. Also, we should get a spring round get together going...
    • You misunderstand. Yes, of course he is one of the ATGs on the current list. What I am saying is that can change, not that it will, but it can. Like I said it is an ever expanding/changing list.
