Ditched my Burner 2.0's for custom fitted Ping G 20's about 3 weeks ago. Never looked back.

Ditched my 2.0 Burners for a set of Callaway Razr-X HL's, earlier this year. Plan on staying with the Callaways.

I'm in the same boat as you, got down to a 9.4 index and ditched the burners for AP1 712's. They feel amazing compared to the Burners.  Noticed a 5 yard or so drop in distance

I was just about to reply and say "Don't blame the clubs!" until is saw Aangel's post. I currently own Adams irons because they are affordable but every Ping Iron set that I have borrowed or rented outperformed any set of clubs I ever owned. So I will change my reply to "Make sure you are fitted for your new set of irons by a professional".

Canned my Burner Plus' for custom G20's and I like them better. Learned golf first with Eye2's and felt like it was time to come back. Whatever you choose get fit and hit lots of different clubs.

got rid of my burner plus' for a set of fitted jpx800s. the offset was killing me, and my iron play is much better now.

you can always say it's not the club, but your confidence is directly tied into your swing so new clubs can be worth it if you feel solid when you stand over them.

I had Burner 1.0's (not much different than 2.0) and changed to 712 AP1's, which I was fitted for. Getting fit has helped, hit the AP1's more consistently as a result.

Bought a new set of custom fit G20 irons to replace my burner 1.0 and i really regret it. The burners 1.0 give you more feed back so you know if you miss hit it and the G20 are not that forgiving and you can't work the ball like you can with the burners and the burners are mutch longer. Went back with the burners and the G20s are for sale!!

Did the same thing. Switched from the 1.0's to the 712 AP1's. What a difference!

The Burner 2.0 is not an iron you necessarily outgrow. It can be played by accomplished players, as evidenced by it being used by tour players Kenny Perry and Natalie Gulbis in 2011. I still have mine as my backup set.

Two guys I play with regularly have them. I've hit them before, and they're good clubs, but they do have their limitations once you start getting to where you want to work the ball. I notice I have a hard time hitting a high cut with them, unlike my Mizuno's. As has been mentioned before, be prepared to lose some yardage when you switch. The 2.0's are built for distance.
