New Irons

Recommended Posts

jenningsj41    0

Hello all,

As you can see I am new here.  I have been playing golf since I was 13 years old and am now 22.  I have an old set of Mizuno MP-32's and want to get fitted for some new Irons.  My previous irons were not fitted, so I am really excited to get this done.  I am looking at some clubs, but wanted to get some insight on some people that maybe have hit them and what they think before I go and test them out.  As you can see I am used to blades, as the MP-32's are a blade.  My handicap is between a 1- 4.  I am 6'3 and weigh 230 lbs.  I hit my driver around 300 yards consistently with about a 280-290 carry.  I hit my 7 iron about 180.  Any more information I am willing to give out.  The irons I am looking at are Mizuno MP-4, Mizuno MP-54, Titleist MB 714, Titleist CB 714, Taylormade tour preferred MB and MC.  I like the blades, but could use some more support for the longer irons like 3-5.  I was also thinking of a mixed set, but I dont think that is a good idea.  Let me know if you guys have hit any of these clubs and what you think.  I think the MC and CB might be more forgiving, but I do love the blades.  I know for irons and all clubs its what I feel, but I have read the reviews and would love some more insight from you guys as well.

I don't really feel qualified to tell you what to play since you are single digit and I am a 15, but I will tell you that some of the greatest players in the world use a "mixed set", using player's cavities in their longer irons and blades in the mid and short irons. A few even use what some consider game improvement irons in long irons. Use what looks good and feels good to you, and more importantly what helps you score the best, if that is your goal.

Hello all,

I like the blades, but could use some more support for the longer irons like 3-5.  I was also thinking of a mixed set, but I dont think that is a good idea.  Let me know if you guys have hit any of these clubs and what you think.  I think the MC and CB might be more forgiving, but I do love the blades.  I know for irons and all clubs its what I feel, but I have read the reviews and would love some more insight from you guys as well.

Why don't you think it is a good idea? I mean the feel might be difference, but having some longer irons being more forgiving is a plus. I play MP-59 with JPX-825 Pro's in the 4 and 5 iron.

In the end do what is comfortable for ya, but I don't see the difference in players playing hybrids instead of long irons than mixing a different brand for a long iron to get more forgiveness. If you don't like hybrids, that is a way to go.

True I was just told by my pro that he said if you want the ultimate feel to play one set of irons, but I was thinking the forgiveness won't be there for those longer irons. Idk I'm torn between the two

Here's a tip. Feel isn't always what you think it is. That guy clearly thinks you must play the same brand for irons. Yet all that matters is knowing your gaps with your clubs. There are PGA tour players who play combination sets.

    • Honestly, I feel like I'm hitting a little of everything.  When at the range off mats, I tend to graze the bottom which I can tell from the feedback of the rubber tee's.  When on the course/grass, I tend to top the ball.  I have noticed my heel shots as the ball direction is unmistakable.  Off to the left, sharp and extremely short and low.  I hit far better shots with my Hybrids than almost any club.  Then my wedges, then irons.  Driver, the least well.  I think I'm trying too many setup and swing techniques almost trying too many corrections.  I over pivot a bit and struggle with stable feet tending to come up on the ball of my left foot.  I played baseball for nearly 14 years so I'm trying to keep from feeling like I'm stepping (or want to step). So, my next real question... is it worth it to try and replace the shafts if the manufacturer ignores me?  I never really hit the GBB as I'd just bought it.  The XR16 definitely felt the best, went the longest and gave me the most confidence.  The Ping G SFT, I also didn't hit more than a few times but I enjoyed it.  I'll try and post some pics of the leftovers and driver murder scene.  "Driver-homicide" is going to be my new nickname.   Thanks Lihu!  
    • Hello guys I've always struggle on short putts and it is why I'm here. Well, when I'm witha shot putt, I realized that my backswing is not Ok, I do not feel that the line stays correct, it seens that my hand shake. There is something that I can do? Change my putting grip?   Thanks
    • Single-digit in two years is ambitious for me, but I'll see you guys in 2021.  
    • I had a buddy film a few drives during my round yesterday.  I am still diving down towards the ball with my head.  No idea why this is still happening, but it does not feel as if it is happening while I am swinging.  Plane seems a little better, but still very erratic. I got the first one off the toe. Started right and stayed right.  The second one was better contact but pulled left.  
    • This was sort of pioneered by Ray Ortiz formerly of Orlimar Golf who now is at Bobby Jones. Long ago he introduced his low profile, Tri-Metal Miraged driver and fairway metals. They took a little getting used to, but really performed once you got it down. Excellent for getting of the rough.  Orlimar still exists under new owners, but no where's near the same as it was. I am a TE convert obviously, only a few clubs to go to have a 100% set, but probably will not go with their wedges.
