Cannot see anything out performs 0311T.

 

Tried miura 001, 716 ap2, 718 ap2, apex x blades, mp18sc, jpx900, none could outperform 0311T. Center hit wise miura 001 feels better than 0311T but just marginally.

 

They may be great, but I am not looking to spend more than $800, which is why I am curious about older models. Thanks for the reply :).

Ping S55s if you prefer a more compact head, or the i200s if you want a slightly larger profile. Both are excellent, very forgiving "player's" irons that have been used extensively on multiple Tours.

Ping I-series, the newer the better. Ping focuses on high MOI with all of their clubs and that's the number one design feature that helps when you don't hit the ball dead center of the face. Ping clubs also have a good amount of bounce so if your miss is a little fat the sole will help mitigate that. Only caveot to this formula is if you play on burned out fairways all the time, in which case the bounce may not be ideal if you are a picker type player.

 

If you want to view objective specification data check out Maltby's club head data. Don't focus on the MPF number, rather look at the specific numbers which define the club heads features such as size (C dimension) and MOI (off center strike forgiveness.)

Grab a set of j40 DPCs for $300 or so and call it a day.

 

I just posted in BST a really nice set for well below this price :-)

And with SteelFiber shafts which was the combo for Fred Couples for many years!

 

Can you draw forgiviness, distance differences between the J40DPC and your current Mizunos? What about going from SF 95S to the Recoil F4's?

 

Looking to change out my DPC's

Yea they are slightly expensive but i havnt changed irons for 2 yrs now, dont see myself changing in the next 2 yrs unless gen3 0311 is exceptionally better (i dont think iron heads can improve that much in 2 yrs), so $250 a yr isnt bad.

Good comment here though I disagree with bounce mitigating fat shots. My miss is a touch heavy and I switched from i200 to AP2 and my backups which are MP32. Fat is fat and the bounce didn't make a difference. Much happier with a smaller head now. I just don't want people thinking a club will help that much with that. I'd go AP2 or i series personally.
