Getting back at it .. Ping g2, i3+ or i5?

Before I decide on going after a new or newer used set of irons I need a set to get me back in the groove. I’ve been off the course for over 6 years and I have a set of G2s and my dad has a set of i5s and i3+ in the garage. Which set of irons is the best get back on the course with? I figure I can play a few times a week over the next 3 months and grab a new set in the fall for a bday present to myself. I’m using my of rapture v2 driver, woods and hybrids.

Thanks!

    Why not just take all 3 sets to the range, hit a few with each and see what feels best then go from there?

    Duh - haha that’s a great idea. The G2 and i3+ Are regular flex and the i5 are stiff. Let em rip.

    They're all great clubs. IMO the I3+ and I5 give out an extra edge. The I3+ were played by Scott Mccarron for the longest time, and D.A. Points still uses the I5s till this day (though heavily modified with less offset and legal grooves).

    Thanks for the feedback- taking the i3+ out on a date tonight. I never really liked the G2 looks wise.

    I played the i3+ for10 years. In my opinion they are a fantastic set if irons. Been using the ie1 since they came out but could easily play the i3+ again.

    I took them out to range - i3+ bring me back to my youth. I’m all in on the i3+ sending them to aping tomorrow am for new grips and a tumble. I never fell for the G2 at address and the i5s are nice at address but i3+ just felt better - maybe the cushion shafts have something to do with that.

    i5s all the way

    i5 are nice but the long irons felt better and went farther on with the i3+’s.
