I have been playing for about two months so a beginner, I have a fairly solid and consistent swing too. It's nearing my birthday so I have been looking at a new set of irons to buy in the £250 category (I think this is about $300).

I know many recommendations will come back to buy used but I would prefer to buy new. Two sets have really drawn my attention, Nike Victory Red (Cavities) and Cleveland Tour Action 7.

Any input would be good whether it be reviews of the above clubs or any other suggestions :)

Like stated above. GET FITTED. I"m currenlty in the same boat as you and so I'm planning on my trip to the local PGA SuperStore to get fitted for some new Irons.

Yeah after reading countless posts similar to mine I gathered that at least :p my local club do free Titleist fittings with no obligation to buy so as soon as my (favourite) pro is better I'll be booking one ASAP.

Still, as a beginner with a solid swing, should I look at SGI clubs or shall I hone my game with less forgiveness?

I'm also a beginner, but after I got fitted by Ping, it is soooooooo much easier to hit the ball consistently than with the incorrect clubs. I also highly recommend getting SGI or at least GI irons. You will need the forgiveness. Hell, my boss is a scratch golfer playing the most difficult courses here in Phoenix-Scottsdale and he plays Ping G15s. You don't need blades to be good, but it's hard to be good with blades. Good luck!

    • I voted no as he is what he is. The alleged child abuse (if true) would be unfortunate and could explain why he seems to disown his parents. His personality could still be what it is, with or without the alleged abuse. To me, it's none of my business and if he wants to talk about it, that would be his choice and not mine. Notwithstanding all this, he is still a great golfer who would beat me with one hand and one foot tied behind his back and I appreciate him for what he is.  
    • Do you have a swing thread going? Maybe you should  create a swing thread with your videos. Go to ‘Members Swings’ and upload your videos from YouTube then post the links.
    • Day 373 - January 16, 2021 Mach 3 stuff to demonstrate, not for me (I’ll do mine tomorrow), then in the few minutes I had between juniors and a group of five adults, hit about 15 balls. Less exaggerated than the previous time(s).
    • Good advice.  Lay a towel a couple of inches behind the ball when you practice.   It will be an eye opener.
    • Oh no...here comes the ‘ he was the greatest ball striker of all time’ talk....
