Forged iron that's Forgiving and Looks good ?


Recommended Posts

I have just switched from Srixon 745 to Mizuno mph5 and the h5s are a different league . So much more forgiving and they feel nearly as good as the 745s . I am also going to pick some of the 850 forged up as they are simply the best looking clubs I have seen for ages and they seem to have that bit of extra help that you need when your ball striking isn't there.

Not for nothing, is the face of the PXGs "forged"? I know the body is, but their website even states the face is welded on.

 

As I understand it, it is two-piece forged. Most if not all Mizzys are one-piece forged. The Apex Edge iron pictured above is the first two-piece forged iron with forged Carbon Steel frame and forged face.

 

I believe it is a steel faced "managing steel" not forged, plasma welded to the forged body.

 

Reviews and Hogan descriptors say the face is forged and the frame is forged 1030 Carbon Steel.

Hit em all and was impressed with the forgiveness in each

 

I have too, and I don't disagree. Wouldn't call them GI, but they offer forgiveness without a crutch, know what I mean?

AP2's! Things are butter!

 

First time I've ever heard the AP2s associated with the word "butter". They are clicky... and crisp. Not a bad thing but no comparison to the softness provided by Bridgestone J15, Mizuno MP, Callaway X-forged, or Srixon Forging.

Would agree with this. I can understand if people like them, but they in no way associate with "butter" or some kind of blade feeling club.

Exactly... even their MBs (712-716) are crisp and clicky. Again not necessarily a bad thing and doesn't affect performance. Just their MO.

Mp54's! Love them!ab85f4792fbb5ec2a3a7657ddeed3841.jpg

 

These look a lot like the MX200s and other channel back Mizzys. What is different about the 54s? I'd love to find a set of Mizzys, but many look similar and aren't much different than the Apex Edge's I play (see photo up in thread). Plus, Mizzys are $$$$. Nice looking bag, BTW.

Maybe so! Have never tried a pure blade type iron though. I am simply not good enough to hit them.

Nonsense my friend... if you can hit AP2s with positive results, J15CBs, 765s, MP-53s, and Callaway X-Forged will be as if not even MORE forgiving, but will be no comparison in terms of softness. (Modus 125/130 shafts will contribute to this).

 

When pured, it feels like your hitting marshmallows... not golf balls.

 

Addicting.

Although, you will outdistance marshmallows by quite a bit.

Also, I'd love to try a set of MP 53s, 765/565 etc, JPXs, but, they sure are expensive for a retired guy on a fixed income. My Hogans cost me $40 (the last set I bought cost $4.00 !!!) and the MX200s I have were under $100 too---just wish I liked them. Maybe I can try them out at a Play It Again Sports store that has a set. In the meantime, I am looking for a 6-iron from any set that I can buy and try out, but even they are too much $$$. Golf ain't cheap, I know. But I am :)

You can get a set of 53s on the Bay for under $300. Definitely look!

Get a Maltby TE 6 iron with shaft of your choice from Golfworks.

So I come across this all the time. Clubs I own vs new recommended clubs. What is the big difference between the Malby TE and the Hogan Edge? Or the Hogan Apex Edge and the Ping G400?

The 718 AP2's have a noticeably softer feel than previous versions.

 

The AP3's are noticeably harsher by comparison, and will not be in my bag long!
