First time poster here and I can't seem to make up my mind between the Cobra F-Max irons/hybrids or the Callaway Steelhead XR irons/hybrids combo sets on sale at Dick's Sporting Goods. I am a 48 yr old high handicapper just trying to break 100 each time out (not very successful normally) and am looking to upgrade from some 10-12 year old Tommy Armour clubs. Any thoughts/advice/opinions/reviews would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Hello All: I scanned the previous posts and couldn't find any topics that may help me with my dilemma. I am a 5.6 Index at my home course that is around 7200 yds. I moved my handicap last year from a 10. Although my game has improved substantially I am struggling with club selection from 190-210 yds. I went to hybrids a few years ago and it has helped but have lower confidence in this yardage range (I know most golfers do). I have been playing Mizuno MP-62 for the past three years but I am considering a move to the Callaway APEX CF16 Irons. I am considering the move to the 2018 APEX CF16 because they tend to be a bit stronger in loft (about 3 degrees) and much more forgiving in the 3,4 and 5 irons and this is where my game could use the help. There is a lot of debate on when a player should go from "Game Improvement Irons" to "Players Irons" but very little discussion from "Players Irons" to "Game Improvement Irons" and I am looking for some guidance. I am asking the group: 1.) Is it a mistake to go to a club that claims to be "more forgiving" with miss-hits if ball striking isn't currently an issue? 2.) Do I stay within the "players irons" options and hit the range more often? 3.) Is the move from the Mizuno MP-62 to Callaway APEX a worthwhile move to solve my 190-210 yard distance issue? My thought is that by going to the APEX that I can use my 5 iron and 4 iron in this distance range and achieve what I am trying to do. Thank you in advance for all your input. FlyerAve Denver, CO
