I'm looking for a utility/driving iron that I would use mostly off the tee but would like to be able use off the turf. I tried the Apex UT, which was great off the tee but I found it a little difficult to get great contact off the turf. Am hoping to try something that has a little slimmer sole for good turf interaction but doesn't sacrifice performance off the tee. Obviously the tmb and UDI are possibilities but curious what other clubs people have tried and liked. Would also consider a 3i from a set like AP1 or Z565. Let me know. Thanks

For better turf interaction, you'd better start thinking fatter soles, e.g., like the Crossover.

I have a speedblade 4 iron and a rocketbladez 3 iron. They're a bit thick on the top line and you have to be aware of the extra offset, but they are so easy to hit and stupid long.

The Crossover can be terrible with its turf interaction. A lush lie is better with it.

Took me a bit, but I am loving my u45 20*.  I haven't found it to be so great out of the rough, but have had great luck with it everywhere else.  It's long off the tee and feel is superb.

Another one that is nice, with a more narrow sole, is the Honma.  Buddy of mine has one and it seems to perform really well without looking too chunky.

You could try an M1 3-iron. Good shape and it's 18*. I think it's what I'm going to go with and I've had the same problem as you.
