Irons that go far but don't have a ton of offset?


Recommended Posts

This group is the absolute best and alerted me to an awesome driver fit.  

 

Question : Any hot irons that don't have a ton of offset?  I have 919 Hot Metal and would love them if they didn't have any offset.  Like the jump, hate the lefts.  Thanks!!!  Have always been a Mizuno lifer, but open to options.

HM pro. It’s exactly what you are describing offset is not much different than the tour

Srixie z545 or 565 too much offset? They hott with great turf interaction

Now-a-days, offset is synonymous with strong lofted irons.  For minimal offset you need to go to more of a blade or JPX 921 Tour, but you'll lose a degree or two loft.  "HOT" is tied to their strong lofts.  Mizuno JPX 4i=20' and offset 0.230", PW is 45* and offset 0.114", as opposed to my 620 blades 4i=24' & PW at 47, and my offset 4i is 2.2m and PW is 0.9m.  Good luck though.

According to their website, the Cleveland HB Launcher Turbos have very little offset on their hybrid irons. If the website is accurate, they have less offset than the JPX921 tours

 

Cleveland 4 iron - 2.73 mm

JPX921 Tour 4 iron - .126 in or 3.2 mm

 

You probably aren’t considering hybrid irons, but you would be hard pressed to find something that launchers faster/higher and has similar offset.

LOve it. Thank you! 

Exact same boat.  Loved my 919 HM but had the lefts so I sold them locally and have been playing Apex CF19s.  I have been hitting these on the thin side as a sweeper.  Mizunos have a better bounce for me.  So I placed an order 2 weeks ago for the 921 HMP.  The offset is less inherently than my CF19s and I also got my HMPs bent 1 degree weak to match the 919s.  That will reduce the offset even a smidge more.

 

919HMs are the longest irons I've even hit even against same types of clubs with similar lofts.  Hoping the 921 HMPs are the same without the lefts.  Awesome feeling for cast clubs as well!

I'm a digger.  HAve you had any descent angle issues with Hot Metals?  Mine seem to come in hot.

No mine had "normal" trajectory and stopped well.  I probably flip a little bit and add a little loft do to mobility or lack there of lol

Tour Edge Exotics EXS.  Very little offset for this genre of irons.  And they are LONG.  I'm not a long hitter by any means, but my 7 iron is 155 now vs 140 w/ my old Mizuno JPX-EZs (2013).....and I'm just now getting them dialed in, as I've only had them 3 weeks.  And the trajectory is HIGHER, despite the stronger lofts.  Really great shaft, too...a TRUE AFTERMARKET Mitsubishi Tensei Blue, not a "made for (manufacturer)".

does "go far" mean jacked lofts or high COR faces?
