first of all I am sorry for my english. It's not my first language. I am on the market for a new set of irons. I am still a beginner and I am looking at something cheap and with a lot of forgiveness. Yesterday I went to Dick's and the guy suggested me either the Adamsgolf a5os Idea hybrid set or the Callaway Diablo Edge one.

Which one do you think is better? do you have any other suggestion in the same price range ($300.

I would vote for the Adams set just for the fact it comes with hybrids which are easier to hit then long irons. But I would hit both sets prior to buying.

Hello Eni22,

I personally own a set of the Callaway Diablo Edge Irons and love them, I've only just stared playing myself so I certainly do not have the same level of experience of the other posters here however I would recommend them. I personally tried around 6 different brands of irons ranging from Dunlop's through to Taylor Made and found the Diablo's to be the most suitable for me, while the Taylor Made's looked and felt incredible I have to say I hit better shots during my testing swings with the Diablo's and that's what mattered to me.

I'm pretty sure that others will be able to make some better recommendations although I think they would need a little more information such as your handicap, usual faults etc.

If it helps the advice I was given was to buy a decent set of Irons and build your Bag piece by piece, that way you can ensure that all your clubs suit you and they are of a decent standard.

Hope you enjoy them

    • @WUTiger I recently visited a small fitting shop upon recommendation from Tom Wishon.  Very impressive, and gives you the feeling of personal service. The owner was previously head of instruction for fitting at San Diego Golf Academy but went into business for himself.
    • I don't suggest doing that. Virtually every good player I've ever taught, myself, those I've talked to, etc. feel as though the "release" or the "squaring" of the clubface comes pretty naturally, not by something you're "making" happen. If you have to manually square the clubface, you've likely done something wrong earlier in the swing somewhere that's got you in a bad position. Also, most people who slice the ball already have the clubface pointed left of the target line at impact anyway. I don't know what the OP said since it's over a year old. And the OP hasn't been on the site since 2012.
    • A couple of things... I wonder if there's any chance of an anti-trust challenge, if the GS + {Dick's / GG} would give Dick's too large a share of the golf retail market. I'm not sure what % of total market share GS + GG would equal. Golf retailing currently floats in a condition of excess industrial capacity* - more companies producing/selling a product category than the market can absorb. In such conditions, a shakeout usually occurs as weaker firms go bankrupt or voluntarily exit the market. What stronger firms often will do is buy up struggling firms to gain control of their capacity, and then have massive shutdowns of less profitable acquired sites. This is what Dick's is doing with their announced plan to  retain only 30 of 109 Golfsmith stores. *(Nexit  - Nike exit - and the TM/Adams "for sale" and the second demise of Nickent show similar problems on the manufacturing side). The Golf Galaxy true superstores are superb, such as the Chesterfield Valley unit in St. Louis area. That said, the average Golfsmith store tends to have more hitting bays than Galaxy. And, a Golfsmith unit sometimes partners with a GolfTec lessons and fitting shop. As far as alternatives to golf superstores, I came across an article  a couple of weeks ago which says custom club-fitting shops are becoming more popular with golfers. I'll post the link if I can find it. Note: GolfTec and PGA of America struck a partnership for golf lessons in February.
    • Don't get me wrong, I loved watching the old Tiger play, and I clearly think he's got the talent to do it, but his body holding up is his impediment. Gotta love his competitiveness and his confidence, but I just can't see that happening.
    • I ran across this from a photo archive. I do not remember whatever happened to it, but I should have kept it (along with a few other whimsical notions at the time); There is actually a tee'd up ball . Hard to see because of the angle and it blends into the tee box marker. The strip of plusher artificial grass simulates the feel of real turf. Not bad for ten minutes work. The markers are Christmas tree ornaments and are stuck into holes drilled into the hard mat and plywood. October 27, 2013 at 1:49pm · Like      This screen was soon ripped to shreds! I guess it needed very flexible or longer tethers.       I don't know how old this swing is, but although does not look too bad, was very much OTT.
