I just put a set 5-Pw of Callaway apex cf 16’s in my bag and am loving them. It might be a honeymoon period but they are the best feeling irons I have ever gamed. Check out CPO if interested.

Mizuno JPX 919 Hot Metal Pro

I'll 'third' the suggestion for Apex CF16s, they can be had for a song right now too since the CF19 are out.

 

My CF16 irons are the only things in my bag I havent switched out in the last 2 years.

Mavrik + ATMOS TS Black / Mavrik 4W + ATMOS TS Blue / Mavrik Pro 3H + ATMOS TS Blue / XForged UT + ATMOS TS Black / Apex 19-Pro + C-Taper / MD5 / Odyssey SL Black 7 + SuperStroke Cord 2.0

Maltby TE or DBM forged are easy to hit and you can pick any shaft and grip you want for a good price.

Srixon z585, cobra forged tech black, Bridgestone j15 cb, df, ping i200, Mizuno mp 54, mp h5, mp h4, jpx models to name a few. Really depends on what you like to look at in terms of size and offset. Two recent models that stood out to me with feel and ease of use were z585 and forged tech black. Some great options out there used as well to help save some cash.

Another vote for the CF16s. I’m a 13 at the moment and bought a secondhand set this year. They are amazing. My prior set was Ping G25s which are highly regarded and great clubs as well but I like these a lot more.

TaylorMade V-Steel 7W GD Purple Ice 85s

Doesn't it depend on your ball striking ability and consistency? Mid HC irons are really GI irons and range from more bladed styles to deep cavity backs. The real decision should be based on your ability to consistently hit the sweet spot - get more forgiving irons if you're not consistent in your strikes. And then it comes down to feel. I see too many people playing more bladed style GI irons and then hitting it terribly. As the old saying goes 'play the most forgiving iron you can stomach to look at'.

6 hdcp and played P790 last season i200 this season but found a cheap set of Ping G's that arrive today after not liking the G410's so have to see how that goes. Most likely will go back to the 2017 P790's as I have missed them a lot since I sold them. With the new 790's hitting in September I hope to find a "cheap" set of the original 790's and just go back to them and be done with switching irons.
