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".

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.

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.

    • I would say the Ace wins.  Hard to deny them the prize to give it to someone who need 2-3 shots.
    • If you know you are better, just get enjoyment out of beating them 😉 If not, mindfulness is a good way to try to not stay annoyed. 
    • So today I was paired with a couple of annoying golf partners.  I would guess they cost me a few strokes, but we know that’s not possible as only we are responsible for our shots.  But maintains focus with the guys who play only a few times a year can have you lose focus and you can’t wait for the round to end. A few of these guys are in this video, especially Mr. Mood Swing. Enjoy:   
    • First, welcome to the Sand Trap!   Second, in my mind, of course an ace on a par-4 wins!!  Now if you get someone who pitches in for 2 I can see a discussion, he's just as close, but in a case of a tie, the win should go to the guy who did it in fewer shots.  I don't know what a proxy is worth in your group, but he can use it to payoff some of the drinks tab for the ace.
    • How does that work, you fly side by side? I'm still getting the hang of keeping the plane steady. You have to be really gentle with the controller sticks. I think I wore out the batteries stalling, making the controller rumble.
