So you're saying I shouldn't extrapolate my love of my 3i to a 2i?  Boo!

Next outing you come to I'll bring my 2 iron for you to try. :beer:

I found it weird how "different" it seemed to make the jump from 3 to 2.  Somewhere between those was the threshhold for my ability to launch an iron high and far.  It was still fun to use occasionally and I hit some doozys with it (2nd shot, Torrey south #6, par 5 [during a scramble] to 18" for a tap-in eagle is the first that comes to mind) but it was mis-hit a lot more than it was well struck. :)

Consistently good? Where's the option for "none of the above?"

The topic is not "consistently good", but playable. I assumed it meant a loss of no more than one shot, or something like that?

I need the owl's face you posted in the past. ;-)

Ahh. If it's playable then 3-iron I guess because I've never hit a 2-iron. But I switched my 3 out for a hybrid a while ago.

That said, I wouldn't even consider my 7-iron a consistently good club for me... wish I could find the sweet spot more often and not the toe. I can still hack my way around though somehow.

Well, even hacking it around you have 6 strokes or more on me. You hack "good". :beer:

Haha. Well you'd still beat my ass on the days I shoot like 89 or whatever.

I can hit a 5 iron relatively well (with my limited talent). My 4 iron was a lot harder so I switched it for a 4 hybrid. It was a lot easier to hit.

I should go back and try again the 4 iron tho, my iron game has improved a lot lately, but my hybrid have not improved much compared to my irons (4h still goes farther than 5 iron, but my 5 iron is a lot more straighter than my 4h). I'll have to go to the driving range soon!

I can hit my 4i pretty well and consistent.  Fun to hit.

I don't have a 3i or a 2i, so I don't know about those one way of the other.

that said - the 4i is not in my bag.  I like my 4h even better.

but, I like to try 'stuff' and might spend a few rounds with the 4i and 5w back in the bag and the 4h and 2h out - just for fun.  I like hitting that 4i and 5w quite a bit.

Whenever my 5i gets a little off to hit, I'll take the 4i to the range and practice with it until it gets good.  That always seems to clean up my contact with the shorter irons, almost immediately.  Big believer now in figuring out what is the longest iron I can hit, and then using everything shorter than that one.  I'm considering getting a 3i just to push my abilities up.  Make that 4i a 'go to' club rather than the one that's maybe on the edge of my capacity.

    • Looks like they have a standard hosel of .355. They should be easy to reshaft. I would recommend trying one club like a 7 iron and see how you like it. You may want to try a few shafts out at a golf shop on other clubs first to see if senior flex is right for you. Tell them you love the heads and just want to try new shafts. Better yet, if there is a good fitter in your area, they would be a better place to try this.  Tell them the same thing. You love the heads. Also, add an avatar when you can. Thanks.
    • @newbiecaddie OnCore Golf launch this App last month. I haven't had time to try it yet, but it looks interesting. Here is a video demonstration - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGfVVxwPHGc
    • A poll would be nice for this topic. Mine is standard 45.5”.
    • That's why I've got Nickent 3DX Hybrid irons, I have a 10 iron which works for me. Most sets of irons have 8" or more of loft gap between the 9 and the wedge, it's ok if your good enough to hit a half'ish or climb into the Sandiron but I'm not. I'm not too bad hitting a strong 9 8 7 etc but the wedges I'm more likely to hit skinny or fat, I think why there is so many wedges is all about the Money...
