Forum Thread of the Day: “Long and forgiving 4-iron?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Norboo who is looking to add a 4-iron to his set-up. Norboo is on the hunt for a 4-iron that is long, forgiving and not “too clunky”, and our members have been giving their suggestions for what they feel is the most appropriate 4-iron for Norboo.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • AG12: “I just got a set of P790’s, and the four iron is a beaut’! Minimal offset and flies! It’s pretty forgiving as well without looking chunky.”
  • dmeeksDC: “Mizzy MP18 MMC Fli-Hi or the JPX 919 Forged. Also find the Ping i200 easy to hit. I prefer irons that are a part of the set design over utilities, and I will mix brands. Right now the 919 Forged 4 iron is in the bag regardless of the irons I’m gaming. I also switch to lighter steel shafts or graphite shafts at 4 iron, and that helps too.”
  • puresurfr: “My vote is for the Hot metal pro……i think the new Callaway epic forged will be a winner too !”
  • jkm27: “Titleist U500. Absolutely gorgeous. Similar to p790 but I think the feel of U500 is slightly better.”

    Try a Ping I500 or Mizuno MMC Fli-Hi. But really. “Forgiving” and “4 iron” are on different sides of the moon.

      Of course! That must be the end all be all of 4 irons. No need to ever make a new model! I’m positive that’s the best for every single golfer anywhere.
      Shaft doesn’t matter I suppose?
      Getting fit is silly.
      And now golf isn’t fun?

        Hope your day gets better buddy.
        For the record..
        Never said end all be all, said it qualifies as long and forgiving.
        Never said no need for a new model, but individual older clubs are more economical than brand new.
        Actually it wouldn’t be the best for everyone, because some people prefer something less forgiving. Not to mention that not everyone even puts a 4iron in their bag.
        Shaft would be a more customized option, that would depend on details and preferences that aren’t provided in the article. Getting fit can be great or a waste of time; it depends on the fitter.
        Again, hope your day gets better and you can get back to having fun.

    2014 Apex UT 24 deg. Has a cool steel look Recoil shaft that blends into the iron set. It fills the gap between my 5 wood (19) and 5 iron (27) “consistently”. It really does, so don’t get too angry,, geez! LOL

    Quit golf if you want a “long” 4 iron. Fill the gap, consistently, between your next longest and shortest clubs.

    Where do these f*cktard questions come from? Obviously from those who don’t realize golf existed before Tiger Woods was born.

    The best 4 iron is the one you can consistently hit in the sweet spot with the proper swing path. That’s not a club meant for forgiveness.

In our forums, our members have been discussing the best 4/5 hybrids from the last few seasons that can be picked up for sub $100. WRXer ‘jadedennill’ asks fellow members for their thoughts on the best models and options and WRXers oblige with plenty of suggestions.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • wgpinc: “Callaway X2 Hot. I like mine a lot.”
  • Whit1969: “Titleist 818 hands down. Do some searching, and you can find them at $100 or less.”
  • Golf64: “Ping, Cobra, Cally are where I would look. Easier to launch.”
  • Bridges: “Honma hybrids do not get much love, but they are fantastic and cheap.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about different face angles for drivers

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing different face angles for drivers and the benefits of an open, closed and square driver face. WRXer ‘BNgolf70’ asks which face angle is most popular amongst fellow members and why, and WRXers have been having their say in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • gvogel: “I happen to like a slightly closed face. I also happen to like to play a draw.”
  • NoTalentLefty: “Open . Severe dislike for closed face clubs. Looks unnatural.”
  • St Jimmy: “I have a tendency to grip strong with my woods, so for that reason, an open face usually has a pretty straight ball flight for me. I tend to hook closed faced clubs.”
  • retrogolfer36: “I prefer square. My normal driver flight is a slight fade, so I try to start the ball on the left side of the fairway and let it fade back to the middle or to the right side of the fairway. With a closed face driver, I get pulls, and with an open face driver, my fade becomes a slice.”
  • Tar_Heel_93: “Slightly open face works best for me. Square face is ok, closed doesn’t work.”
