There is a similar thread for irons count of 10 handicappers and above. A very good thread. I am interested to know the irons used by low handicappers, including scratch and those with + handicap. Pros welcome too!

I will start:

Handicap off 1. Callaway X-Forged 2018 4-pw irons with Modus 120s.

*** UPDATE: Tally after first 34 replies ****

Ping 7

Mizuno 7

Titleist 5

Callaway 5

Srixon 3

Miura 2

TaylorMade 1

Cobra 1

Nike 1

Yonex 1

Adams 1

*** Tally after about 85 replies ****

Top iron make and models:

  1. Mizuno MP: 10 appearances
  2. srixon (565-985): 7
  3. Mizuno JPX: 6
  4. (tied) Ping i200/210, Callaway Apex MB, Titleist AP, TaylorMade P790: each has 4 appearances.

    0.7 handicap. Srixon z785 3-pw with UST mamiya prototype 110 f5 X graphite shafts. Best shafts I've ever played, cant begin to rave how much more consistent, lower spin, and stable they feel compared to other steel shafts I've used. Expensive, but well worth it for my game :)

    ... 52* - 58* wedges with Recoil 110's. My irons are a standard loft 4 iron but 5-pw are bent 1* weak. I just installed some Steelfiber 95's r-flex after playing Recoil 95 s-flex in my previous set. I have a feeling I will be gong back to Recoils but remain hopeful the i95's in r-flex are a better fit than the s-flex which just didn't not work for my swing.
