During my years of playing G's I've also owned i20's, i5's, and ie1 irons, and while I can play the i's fine, I find the G's are just plain easier to hit. The pattern that keeps repeating for me is that I'll be playing the i's but the scores are moving in the wrong direction, so I'll switch back to the G's and the scores almost immediately improve. I've gone through this pattern a bunch of times. Wish I could force myself to settle down with only one set of irons but what's the fun in that? Seriously now, the G's are awesome and I don't understand why so many aspiring "players" feel the need to move to the less forgiving clubs. At any rate, I HAVE learned my lesson.
Great statement there. In a few years I hope to be scratch or nearly so (hey, I really think this will happen even if I've got a long way to go), but I'm still going to be playing an oversized game improvement iron like the G series. Mishits happen. They happen for all variety of reasons -- bad swing, bad focus, bad lie, bad stance, tough unusual shot required, etc., so take all the help you can.
