Recommended Posts

hey guys,

has anyone had any experiences with burner 2.0 or mp h-4s irons?

although my handicap is high, im not such a bad iron hitter. im pretty accurate and getting the ball high and far isn't too much of a problem (of course with game improvement irons)

i'm having difficulties choosing between mizuno h4s or jpx 825 pros, which i can get for very cheap from a friend (half the orig. price), or buying burner 2.0s which I've tested briefly and liked.

its either cheaper slightly used mizunos which aren't totally for my level but i intend to reach over this summer OR burner 2.0s that are at my level for about the same price.

pls help me choose :)

I'm currently playing TM Burner 2.0 irons (4-AW) and I honestly feel that the irons are the most diverse irons i have ever hit.

In the past I played Titleist 755 forged irons, which i liked very much but I wanted to upgrade. After testing about 10 different sets I couldn't find an iron that gave me more distance, consistency, and feel (all 3 at the same).

After some time on the range I've been able to work the ball pretty consistently and control my trajectory.

I truly believe these irons will make any mid to high hanicapper better. As you get better, the irons will still help in many ways. I don't feel a golfer will ever get to a point where these irons inhibit their game.

The only way I will switch to a different set is when i can make perfect contact on 99.9% of my swings... Or when the irons are about five years old and I want to upgrade to the next thing like these (more likely to happen).

If you do purchase the TMs I hope you enjoy them as much as i do.. Which i'm sure you will!

I'm not disregarding what the previous poster said, but personally I would highly recommend getting irons that are below your "handicap level" if you will. This is ONLY if you intend to seriously improve though. If you just want enjoyment out of the game playing only every so often, get the Burners. They're great irons, don't get me wrong. I used to have a set. But I give a lot of credit to my current set of irons (mixed blade set) to dramatically improving my game. I had to put in a lot of work, but it was all worth it. Bottom line is if you are serious about getting better and will put in the work, go for the Mizunos. And I buy all my clubs used FWIW.

If you're getting the Mizunos used from a friend, see if you can take them out for a couple of rounds before you commit to buying them. You'll pretty quickly find out how you get along with them.

I can't speak for the MP-H4 irons but, I do  have a set of TaylorMade 4-AW Burner 2.0. I consider them to be game improvement irons for mid-handicappers (20+) like myself.  They are relatively easy to hit and are very predictable with respect to distance and control. Since I don't have the ability to actively "work" my shots, they will probably serve my needs for the foreseeable future. For my skill level, the Burner 2.0's are the right clubs for me.

    • Because when an athlete describes what went wrong in a post round interview, it's always 100% accurate. 1. I do play w/ schmucks (myself included).
      2. One of us chokes pretty consistently (one of the schmuckier schmucks we have), and for 10 years he does fine in our $2 nassaus and but only loses $$ in all our "big" games. Even when he's been playing well that year (index down), we play net, so he still loses, and even he admits he just gets the nerves. I'm glad he can be comforted knowing that mental games is a tiny portion of his overall performance.  Gump says "life is like a box of chocolates". I'm allergic to chocolate so this is just wrong, literally, figuratively and in every way. (That was a whole lot of sarcasm.  My mom would kill me if she saw me posting like this.  I do mean it in the most fun way possible)
    • Dustin Johnson has different physical abilities than Jordan Spieth does, none more evident than the playoff at the Northern Trust. That week, Dustin Johnson, the person with the better physical ability, won, and the reason why he won was because he was physically superior to Spieth with his drive on the playoff hole. No, top pros dont have similar physical abilities.  There is over a 40 yard difference between the shortest driving average (271) and the longest driving average (317) on the PGA tour this year. Pros dont have similar physical abilities.
    • Welcome. I know it seems like summer now, and for a bit more, but it's officially fall, lol. Unfortunately, the munis are gonna be a huge letdown compared to the courses you've mentioned , but if you need any info, just holler. 
    • Welcome! Depending on whether or not you drive and where you live in the city, there are plenty of passable courses in the boroughs. Dyker Beach and Marine Park in Brooklyn ok. Short and fun. Clearview in Queens is alright. Staten Island has a bunch of decent courses, but if you dont drive its hard to get out there. Theres always Bethpage Park in Long Island, but it can be a haul from the city too if you dont drive. 
    • Yeah, like what dzclarkcpa was saying, alot depends on the grass and the setup of the course. So many different variables come into play and it really just takes experience to learn how to play out of the rough. If you know a grass range that has some thicker grass on it, practice some there and see what it does to your ball flight and distances.  But generally, the more of the back of the ball you can see, the better you'll be able to control it. That doesn't always mean you'd able to hit your normal full swing shot, but it could mean you can play it differently with reasonable control.
