***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION

Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

Best GI iron of 2019

    Bump. I love my z545s, but they're getting pretty beat up and I know I can get some more ball speed on off-center strikes.

    Lots of oxymorons here? I guess there is a difference between SGI and GI aka 'players GI' though.

    Look at the 'players GI' lines like the APEX CF19, Hot metal pro, P790, etc. Small heads, good forgiveness, small-ER toplines - but you're not going to find 'max forgiveness' and 'thin toplines' in any kind of 'GI' iron. It's a give/take.

    Hi...

    Didn't say "thin" toplines... I am asking regular GI clubs like G410, 919 HM (non Pro) etc

    Those are 'SGI' aka 'Super Game Improvement' - again, its just semantics of the golf industry. I thought you meant the category under that which are a little more advanced.

    Idk I think those are considered GI irons. Aren’t irons like P790, T200, and Apex19 considered Players Distance Irons?

    G410. You can close this.

    To my perception p790, i500 etc are not GI irons, but players distance iron, which should fall in a different category. SGI are G700 and the like.

    Am I missing something?

    M5 doesn't have a ton of offset. I think close to P790, maybe less. I would think they are still in GI category.

    It's down to 410 and HM. 410 wins the forgiveness award for it's killer high MOI and high bounce sole. HM looks a little better and sounds better, finish is more durable too. Can't go wrong with either.

    If G410's are in the mix than it's G410's.

    They are super easy to hit, at address only the 4 iron and maybe the 5 iron you can see the back flange. I mean they are not small irons but they are easy to hit and the shorter clubs look decent because of the shorter blade length

    Plus only the Ping G series have the "good players can still use these" panache

    I notice looking at a lot of those offerings that, to me, they often look like Ping G irons, at least the sole.

    PXG 0211. Same ilk as the other hollow-bodied, filled irons (G700, P790) but is actually designed as an attractive “combo set”. Super game Improvement in the long irons and players in the short. The brand, price and longer blade length might put some people off but I had love at first hit. If you are able to obtain the hero pricing or buy from someone who can, as I did, they are a great deal. At least give them a chance with a free fitting. I’m glad that I did.

    I currently own both and have played both Ping G410's and G400's extensively. Have also owned Srixon 585's. I can't seem to keep the G400's out of the starting lineup. They dig a bit more than the 410's, but as a sweeper, I need that. Distance control is better for me with the 400's. The 410's seem jumpy on high strikes. 410's are longer. Really long. 585's feel better than both and are long too. Sold the 585's. Keeping the 410's inthe backup bag.
    Playing the 400's.

    Went for a fitting for both the 410s and the HMs. Liked them both. Neither had the dispersion of my 2017 Cleveland HB Launchers. Both new irons went farther and had a bit flatter ball flight, than my Launchers. I can crush my HB 4 iron and it's straight. Couldn't replicate that with the HMs or the 410s. Stuck with the Launchers and saved some money. You can get the Launchers now for $400 4 - PW. I have the stock stiff graphite shafts.
    They may be ugly, but they flat out perform. Give em a try/look if you don't need have a 2019 set of irons. FYI - I'm a 9 capper.
