About the loft of a modern 2 iron. No tungsten, no perimeter weighting, no thin hot face, no high launch. Just you and your fundamentally sound swing. Need to strike it in the center and have a lot

At least wait until the weather gets warmer?! I'm sure the "feedback" on thin strikes in winter temps will be wonderful.

I played Palmer Peerless blades for a number of uses and carried 1-SW. My favorite club in the bag was the 1 iron. For some unknown reason that club and me just plain got along. Selling those is one of my biggest club regrets.

Former 1 iron player here.

I hit a Ping Eye 2+ 1 iron last week and couldn't bring myself to spend $14.95 on it. Felt like a hockey stick. I can't imagine a Standard feeling much better, but it'll be fun to try out.

I've got a few 1 irons at home, a Callaway x12, a couple of Yonex models and my Nike OG Blade.


Only one I've tried recently is the Nike, and I don't find it too hard to hit at all. Off a tee it's great - can be a little more challenging off the deck But then I'm one of those weirdos who is more comfortable with a 2 or 3 iron than a 9 iron, so your mileage may vary.

Great for a practice club at least I'd say.

Funny thing about the Mizuno True... they took some heat among golf nerds on the early forums and Usenet, had a rep of being terribly unforgiving. Those folks much preferred the MP14, as one example.

Maltby's MPF has the True as one of the clubheads they've measured. And sure enough, the True has a higher MOI than the MP14. Or the MP11. Or the MP33. Or just about any Mizuno MP blade.
