Impossible to answer for you.  You have to test and see for yourself. Personally I play my 2 at same length as the 3.  And prefer the x100 in it for a lower flight. While I have modus 130x in all others and flight is much higher.  My 2 is for holes that have no benefit to hitting closer.  Just to layup for a full wedge etc. so the stinger that rolls out is what I want.
The exact reason my Hogan Forged 99 Apex is in mine. I hit the little stinger cut with it for lay ups off the tee. And as you know it gets windy here and it is ideal for short stingers in the wind on hard dry fairways. Now I can hit the 3 iron that came with my Callys just as far but it goes higher. When I got the head I put a brand new S-300 in it and did not tip it any just butt cut it to length at 43 inches.

I've tried the one iron thing and don't see an advantage over a 3 wood?

Some people hit irons better. Ask Jason Day why he bagged a 1i for the Prez Cup and no fairway woods. Like everything else in this game - it's based on the individual.
Exactly--- My 2 iron is 19* the same as my 19* hybrid. The hybrid I hit real high which is about as useful here sometimes as a screen door on a Submarine.

Look at the Mizuno fli hi irons. You can get the 2010 and earleir versions for as low as $30 here in the US, not sure about over where you are. I have three of them (18, 21 & 24*) and never had an issue getting them up or keeping them low. I have the 24* bent to 23* and keep it in the bag as a 4 iron replacement, the other two I will add in when I feel like it, if it is windy and / or hard fairway conditions to get max rollout. Looking forward to testing out the new MP 18 fli hi's.

Hi guys,

First off thanks for all the response!

Just an update for those interested I ended up going with the Titleist T-MB 17 degree with the dynamic gold R300 steel shaft.
I went with the regular flex as the rest of my irons are regular. With what I've read my current irons should probably be stiff though! :(

Anyway I got a good deal here in the UK on eBay so if it doesn't go well I can always re-sell. The regular shafts aren't as common.
Fingers crossed it arrives by the weekend!

hey how is the titleist TMB 2 iron? Wonder if that would be a good driving option. It's almost a 3W substitute.

I play the MP-H5 2 as well . My MP-H5 irons have KBS tour stiff, the 2 iron has modus 3 stiff. It flights the 2 iron better for me. Great club.

I love mine, but it needs a good swing for max distance.  If T-MB 17* replaces anything its 4 wood, as their lofts are 16-17*..  Typical 3wd lofts are 15-13*

I'll add my experience with my 716 TMB 2 iron.

I play X100 in my 716 CB and TMB 4 and 3 iron.   I desperately wanted to try the 2 iron as I had great success with the 3 and 4.   I read many posts about users adopting a graphite shaft into their TMB 2 iron.  I figured I'd split the difference and I went with the AMT X100.

I struggled.  I own a launch monitor and I was getting better numbers, primarily ball speed, with my 3 iron.  I wasn't thrilled with the feel or the flight outside.   I took another gamble and took the 2 iron to golf town to have a regular X100 installed.   Magic.  It's now just like the 3 iron, but lower of course.  All of the lost performance was gained and I got what I wanted.

I rarely use this 2 iron though, especially from the turf.  I get much more consistent results distance wise with my 3 iron, 19 hybrid of my 915 5wood.  The reason for my 2 iron purchase was to have a club in the bag that goes low off the tee, plus I like to tinker.  

Hopefully this post helps someone in the future.

The TMB 3 iron is a great club.  I'd say I prefer it from a tee over the H2 as I'm more consistent with it.  From the cabbage the H2 shines, however the TMB 3 is no slouch.  

Naturally I generate more club and ball speed with the H2 due to the length difference.  There is also slightly less spin on the H2 so roll out is greater.  The TMB 3 iron can be air mailed and stick really close to its pitch mark on a green vs the H2.  

I play the 3 iron to a 225 carry in my typical conditions where as the H2 I'll stretch that to 235 and get much more roll, closer to 250-260 total.  

I can also "step-on" the H2 much easier and stretch it out if I really need to at the cost of some accuracy.  IE 240-245 carry into a par 5, given the right conditions.  I generally liked woods better when I was younger which is why I ended up trying this.  

I really like the H2 and the tmb 3. The 2 iron is still on the fence for me as I've basically designated it for the jigger off the tee when we get wind...and living in the Canadian prairies offers me plenty of wind! Lol

I play the 3 iron to a 225 carry in my typical conditions where as the H2 I'll stretch that to 235 and get much more roll, closer to 250-260 total.  

I can also "step-on" the H2 much easier and stretch it out if I really need to at the cost of some accuracy.  IE 240-245 carry into a par 5, given the right conditions.  I generally liked woods better when I was younger which is why I ended up trying this.  

I really like the H2 and the tmb 3. The 2 iron is still on the fence for me as I've basically designated it for the jigger off the tee when we get wind...and living in the Canadian prairies offers me plenty of wind! Lol
thanks for the info...as a follow up then how does the H2 compare to 5 wood?

You're welcome.  The 5 wood creates more club and ball speed over both the 2 iron and H2, for obvious reasons.  The ball flight and launch is slightly higher and the decent angle is roughly the same give or take.  Carry is up another 5-10 easy yards over the H2 and total distance reflects this as well.  As mentioned before, I can really step on the hybrid more than an iron...and this is also true for the 5 wood.  If I really want to go after one I can stretch the 5 wood another 10 yards carry.  Normally I'll play the 5 wood for a 245 carry.  Just the other night on sky trak I was tagging a few in a row carrying close to 260 which essentially renders having a 3 wood useless for off the deck, IMO.  These 915 woods are very responsive I find.  

Just for reference, I play the Diamana D+ in ALL of my fairway woods, driver and hybrid.  80x in the woods, 70x in the driver and 100x in the hybrid.  I definitely favour the low launch ball flight.  The 13.5 FD I've got launches between 9-11 degrees off the deck.  

I'll stop rambling now lol

I have same setup great club



I'll add my experience with my 716 TMB 2 iron.

I play X100 in my 716 CB and TMB 4 and 3 iron.   I desperately wanted to try the 2 iron as I had great success with the 3 and 4.   I read many posts about users adopting a graphite shaft into their TMB 2 iron.  I figured I'd split the difference and I went with the AMT X100.

I struggled.  I own a launch monitor and I was getting better numbers, primarily ball speed, with my 3 iron.  I wasn't thrilled with the feel or the flight outside.   I took another gamble and took the 2 iron to golf town to have a regular X100 installed.   Magic.  It's now just like the 3 iron, but lower of course.  All of the lost performance was gained and I got what I wanted.

I rarely use this 2 iron though, especially from the turf.  I get much more consistent results distance wise with my 3 iron, 19 hybrid of my 915 5wood.  The reason for my 2 iron purchase was to have a club in the bag that goes low off the tee, plus I like to tinker.  

Hopefully this post helps someone in the future.
