Hi, (Skip to final paragraph for main topic.) So I'm new to golf, but not completely. I do have some experience at the range and used to play about 4 times a year whilst in high school, I don't have an official handicap either. Since the end of last year I have been very interested in golf and enjoy the sport way more than I used to in the past. Going to the range and hitting a few balls feels relaxing and enjoyable thus I want to get more into the sport. Now, gear...I went for a club fitting (irons) at my local golf shop (Cape Town) where we tested a few brands, shafts ect. He fitted me with a club and changed the shaft and there we were, something that I could hit easily and felt great/consistent. The club was a Mizuno JPX 850 with a Dynamic Gold X100 shaft, it felt very good. Avg. stats with the club: 6 iron, club head speed 100mph, ball speed 133mph back spin ~5000rpm. So these Mizunos felt great and the club fitter advised me that I have a good swing and should get a set of clubs that would suit a wide variety of handicaps as I might improve quick. I would like some suggestions of cheaper alternative clubs to the Mizuno JPX 850 irons which cost R10 000.00, I'm on a budget of R6 000.00 so something 60% of their value but with the same feel would be perfect! Thank you in advance :) Moderator, please delete my double post, the lag was strong
