John Letters MM Forged Prototype. I bought a set of Srixon z765's but I just can't take the JL's out of the bag.

LOL...I like the 11s and they were actually really ahead of their time for the technology that they have. Theyre a hollow-bodied iron that still has a pretty compact head and thin soles, so they look

Titleist AP3 3, 4, 5 iron

Titleist AP2 6-GW

Love these irons, perfect for me.

Id love to get a new set of irons but I dont see what a new set would do that the one I already have doesnt. I dont believe that irons have gotten better over the last 20 years, the lofts have just gotten stronger. IMO with irons, its not about distance, its about hitting the ball a certain distance and hitting it the same distance every time.

The MX-11s came out in 2001. Id been playing a set of Tommy Armour Atomics for the past year and for about a month this season I played with some Cobra AMP Cells. I struggled with control with the Atomics and the Cobras played almost the same because the lofts were nearly identical (the Cobras' lofts were about 2* stronger).

IMO, the difference from new irons to vintage irons is nowhere near as significant as people think.
