So as long as the OEM confirms the order with no upcharge here it is:   Cobra Forged TEC 4-GW with Modus 130s   King MIM black 56 and 60    Thank you, and good night

Handsome looking clubs

Pull a Fleetwood and mix it up.  You'll be more intimidating.  I say older generation long irons from Srixon (4-5?), 770's 5 or 6-P.  Get a non set gap wedge, and make sure it does not match your sand

Looks like they offer them in 4-Pw stock but not showing a custom section at moment in LH. Although it shows 4-Gw available in LH in the specs. They also have the Forged Tec utlitily to get your lower lofts such as 18-21 or so. 
 

and if you haven’t seen, these are coming out this year with a new Forged Tec...

I think that's what turned me off, their site didn't show anything available lefty in their custom options so i wasn't sure what was available.

 

I'll check if my pro has an account he can ask

 

I could do a 4-GW with their new MIM black wedges all for the same price as just irons with someone else

 

money isn't really a main factor, but it's still something

Get the Mizuno SEL.  Mizzy will give you a better shaft selection than any of the other choices, probably at a better price.

OK, got it narrowed down to 2 sets. Emailed my pro about the specs i'd want and just seeing if there's any red flags or massive delays

 

Will update shortly if anyone cares LOL

Jeff, I think you and I come from a similar place given our love of the G series. Of the sets you list (heck, on any list), I’d put the Srixons head and shoulders above the others. One caveat: I’d stick with the zx7 series.
 

They are almost as long as the distance oriented irons on your list, but provide exceptional feel that the others can’t match. I’d also bet that their turf interaction is better than anything you’ve ever played. If you like the high bounce, wider sole of the G series, you will LOVE the v-sole on the Srixons. This feature alone will make them play as a much more forgiving iron for a low handicapper like you. 
 

In other words, they are nearly as long as a distance iron, look and feel as good as the best players irons, and play with a level of forgiveness through the turf that rival your beloved G series. 
 

But go ahead and get the 770s. Ha ha!!!!

You’ll be hard pressed to get these gear heads on here to talk you out of not getting new new irons. How do you Cindy the 410s a SGI? Thought I’ve read in past post the s300 was your go to shaft? Id combo the Apex/Apex Pro Callaway offers a few different combos in the new Apex line. Check them out! IF I wanted new irons, I’d go a combo route with Callaway! Just my 2 cents, FWIW! Choose wisely!!

Those P-770's look really nice. You can play'em. I always thought forgiveness was overrated (unless it's your wife doing the forgiving, lol), and when I had a set of MB's I didn't notice much difference in scoring.

 

What shaft are you looking to get?

 

Hey Sean! I had a couple of people give me a really good sell on the Apex Pros and i almost went with those actually. 

 

But in the end i have actually held and made a few swings with the Cobra Forged TEC since they were out in 2019. I remember loving the head shape...Frankly i'd forgotten about them due their website having some flaws on the lefty options

 

So i ordered those with Modus 130's

Will do. I'm trying to order as much as i can through my local pro because he's a really good dude. I try to buy most of my clubs there and he usually hooks me up with stuff at year end that haven't sold.

bet it would be fun seeing these show up.  
set you get to salt and pepper to your taste.  

https://www.golfsub70.com/

 

otherwise the 410 not are a complete pendulum swing into the SGI world. The penultimate SGI from ping would be the g710

I have a set of Sub 70 and they feel great and don't have that can or corn sound like the Pings do. (Wish they could hire a good acoustics engineer at Ping!) Also... at the risk of being eviscerated, the new 2nd Gen PXG 0211 released at under $100 / club may be the biggest upset in 2021!  Don't overlook the Direct To Consumer market!

Damn, I'm late to the party Jeff! I would have tried to steer you towards the Wilson D7 Forged. So underrated.

The D9s are out now.... strongest lofts in the industry from what I can tell!   If you want distance and a nice looking iron in the bag at a reasonable price then folks should give them a try!

So i'm all set.

This thread is hysterical. 
 

OP asks for advice, but seems to have his mind set already on the 770‘s due to no upcharge Modus 130 shafts.

Ignores pretty much all that’s thrown at him and out of nowhere, picks a set that hasn’t been in the race at all. Orders it and says so. But people keep recommending stuff anyway, like nothing has happened. OP says thanks, I’m all set, but WRXers keep piling on and plugging their beloved irons...just amazing. 

This has to be the pinnacle of male stubbornness and ignorance and I LOVE IT!

Thanks for the laughs, fellas!

 

Jeff, hope the Cobras are good to you and arrive soon!

 

P.S. Have you considered the New Level 902‘s? They’re really good!

 

Good song btw

I would say this thread was actually very helpful to me. I wanted Modus 130s, but i had forgotten about the Cobras , i think it's because a couple of months ago their site seemed to show limited lefty options in that set. So i just stopped considering them or going back to that site when i put together my list

 

So the suggestion on Cobras , plus the mention that Modus was also a free shaft upgrade , led me to reconsider them and eventually purchase them. The advantage they had was they were the only set i had ever actually held in my hand. So i was 100% confident in the head shape

 

BTW, my second choice ended up being the 2021 Apex Pros (which i had originally listed 4th)...because a couple of folks PMd me and talked about them a bit. 

 

So in the end i wouldn't say i ignored posts here. Probably the exact opposite, my top 2 choices ended up being one that wasn't even on the original list, followed by another that started in 4th

Don’t get me wrong, in the end, it helped you make the right decision!

I’m absolutely not saying you’re ignorant, I just saw myself in this- some confirmation bias and looking for validation is exactly what I need when I just WANT stuff. 

If you read it back, you might see why I found it funny. Or not. 

Really, just a harmless observation by me, and I’m happy the answers got you what you needed! I‘ll find the humor in almost anything, so maybe it’s just me.

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
