Need help: Iron selection.


Recommended Posts

Long story short, I'm able to get any set of irons I want (barring Japanese high end stuff...mainly Callway, Titleist, etc) and I have no idea what to do. I don't have time to go hit them before I have to make a choice, so leaning on your experiences here. 

 

My short list includes: 

  • Titleist T100
  • Callway X Forged
  • Srixon ZX5/7 combo
  • Some sort of Mizuno stuff

 

I currently play Apex Pro Combo irons. One main issues is no company offers my current gamer shaft (C Taper S+) except Callaway, and I'm not sure I have the game for X Forged in the long irons. 

 

Any help or suggestions you may have would be appreciated!

All good choices.  Depends on personal preference.  I think Mizuno offers that shaft for free.  Plus they have the ability to easily combo long irons that are more forgiving.  So, that could be a star

Do yourself a favor and find the time to hit them in advance. Why would you just go out and buy based on recommendation? 

This^ And if you're going to buy without hitting just order the new Wilson Staff MB's and spend the money you saved on beer and golf.😁

Titleist. You won't regret the quality. And "matching" your irons to your wedge maker isn't a bad thing.

Don’t love the look of the JPX921 tour cavity, but from address they are money, and more importantly - they are awesome.

Handicap? I guess if you have the T100’s I would suggest Mizuno I believe they offer that shaft free upgrade. And you can’t beat a Mizuno iron ? Jpx 921 tours or forged. T100 Or TM p7mc would be my second choice. To bad you don’t have time to get fit.

Or wait til January and buy the new W/S CB...look great, surely will perform and will be a bargain, as is all W/S stuff.

 

@KingKong, you should also consider New Level‘s offerings! 902‘s or the new PF-1/PF-2 look awesome and are great quality!

Actually I meant the CB's and typed MB's. I should wait until I've got my first cup of coffee down me before I try to do anything that requires thinking.🤐

Are you not worried about the c tapers having tip bending issues?  I’ve heard so many stories of people having issues with them that it would concern me and I might try to find something else personally.

it is hard to give other suggestions without knowing more about your game.  What is your handicap?  Sweeper or digger?  Any other info that might help people make a suggestion?  Given what we know it seems like the best suggestion you are going to get is to pick the one that looks best to your eye, or we are just suggesting what we like for our games...

1. They are free. I'm not buying anything. 

2. I have to make a choice before I'll have any time. At all.

I've played C Tapers for years and never had any issues. First I've heard of it actually.

If you've enjoyed the Apex Pro Combo irons then keep playing that same set (or buy another set as similar as you can find).
