There are a bunch, but it really is best to go out and hit them. I've tried the T-MBs on a few occasions with shafts that work for me but they always go right and weak. They're stellar clubs, no doubt

Sim Udi is a beauty. Launches a bit higher and is a bit more forgiving than the P790 UDI which was really the benchmark for this kind of club

Can I just state for the record that threads like this SUCK for me. I get all excited reading about these sweet clubs and half (if even that many) are available in lefty.

 

I know, small market. I never would have golfed left if I had known ahead of time it was tough to find hardware.

Srixon is showing the lefties love this year!

I'm gaming the new '21 Callaway X Forged UT.  The feel is greatly improved and now feels like a players iron should.  Has a very nice "crack" at contact and no more of the clicky feel of a hollow body!

 

I just posted a review on my YouTube channel, check it out!

Fellow lefty here,

 

Don't write off the Cobra King Utility... I swapped my G410 Crossover for the Cobra last summer, the Ping is a super low launch, low spin monster but was unforgiving to my common miss, anything even remotely resembling a heavy shot was not good. Not a fat shot, just a whisker heavy...

 

I tested the Cobra and it went straight into the bag, 10ish yards shorter than the Ping but miles easier to launch high and spin it for approach shots, easy to flight. This wasn't apples to Apples, the Ping is graphite shafted and I matched my Cobra to the (steel) shafts in my irons...

 

I have it in 19.5 and get ~235 out of it give or take based on roll and course firmness.

Yep, more options every year.  Except I am like many better golfers that hate change just because.  There has to be a reason to change other than excitement of a new club. 😛  And to that point, my hobby is playing good golf not buying n selling equipment.  

 

I still play 718 T-MB 17* 2i, only now with 92g Tensei AV White AM(2) "S".  Ball go far too.

Could anyone compare the soles of the TM DHY and Srixon ZX? I think it is down to those two for me, I have hit them both but at separate times and separate stores with the DHY being like 3 months ago

The sole of the DHY seems a little thicker to my eye.  At address the Srixon does a better job of hiding it's width as well so it appears much narrower.  The Srixon for years has been the #1 Driving Iron on tour because I think it does a good job blending forgiveness with looks/playability. It's also no slouch in performance.

 

For me, I preferred the feel of the DHY, and it's ball speeds were MONSTEROUS all other things being equal. Validated on my GCQuad...the DHY is just so good.  Can hit it high (has more mass low)and still can hit low, but above all, was giving me 4MPH more ball speeds.
