Most people use these as lower hitting replacements off the tee and I'd be using it as completely the opposite - an easier to hit, more forgiving and higher launching long-iron.  I had the Apex UT's but ditched them because they actually hit BULLETS and were too low spin compared to a standard 4-iron.  Are these going to be more of the same or are people finding good results with replacing the 3/4/5 irons with these while being easier to hit?  I don't need something that hits head high with zero spin by any means.

Hit the 3 on a monitor the other day and boy does it launch easy. Never hit the apex but these are soft at impact and seem to put a nice mid flight on the ball (was hitting stock px shaft). Comparable to the UDI imo.

Interesting, thank you.  Would be curious to see if 21, 24, 27 UT's would pair well with X-Forged mid/short irons.

I would assume so. I know it's not the same brand, but the feel was the very close for me on the UT vs UDI and I have been using UDI 3/4 irons paired with 5-9 RSI tours and my distances are fairly seamless from 3-4-5, the UDIs just make it easier for me to launch with a smooth swing + hold greens with the long irons. (Plus the confidence of a slightly larger club never hurt)

That's PRECISELY what I would be looking for.  Easier launch, more forgiveness, etc out of the long irons.  The issue that I saw with the Apex UT was that it was more of a driving iron/tee club for me.  It was pretty easy to hit, but hit low bullets, which was amazing as a driving iron but not so much as a long iron replacement.

I have the 24 degree with project x lz.  Same shaft in my 18 Apex MB.  I have really struggled with it. Think I'm going to have it bend 1 degree upright.  I wish I could have tested it before I ordered.  I would have probably gone graphite in that club.  

But season hasn't started and my swing is in a slump at the moment.  Gonna be spending some time working with that club soon.  May end up putting a 105 gram graphite shaft in it.  I assume it's .355 tape tip?  Can anyone confirm?

Awesome.  Guess they shimmed the steel shafts.  Thinking about ordering a Aldila NV 105s or NV85s and throwing it in there.

Has anyone compared this to the P790 3 or 4 iron? Is it safe to assume the P790 is higher launching and a bit more forgiving?

Hey guys,

Got a rogue pro set my 3i is 19*.

Should a get an 18* 1* stronger (so 17*) and would it fit in distance wise? What I’m aksing: are they „super“ long?

If I order it this way, what degree is stamped in the head? 18* or 17*?

Most people use these as lower hitting replacements off the tee and I'd be using it as completely the opposite - an easier to hit, more forgiving and higher launching long-iron.  I had the Apex UT's but ditched them because they actually hit BULLETS and were too low spin compared to a standard 4-iron.  Are these going to be more of the same or are people finding good results with replacing the 3/4/5 irons with these while being easier to hit?  I don't need something that hits head high with zero spin by any means.

Hit the 3 on a monitor the other day and boy does it launch easy. Never hit the apex but these are soft at impact and seem to put a nice mid flight on the ball (was hitting stock px shaft). Comparable to the UDI imo.

Interesting, thank you.  Would be curious to see if 21, 24, 27 UT's would pair well with X-Forged mid/short irons.

I would assume so. I know it's not the same brand, but the feel was the very close for me on the UT vs UDI and I have been using UDI 3/4 irons paired with 5-9 RSI tours and my distances are fairly seamless from 3-4-5, the UDIs just make it easier for me to launch with a smooth swing + hold greens with the long irons. (Plus the confidence of a slightly larger club never hurt)

That's PRECISELY what I would be looking for.  Easier launch, more forgiveness, etc out of the long irons.  The issue that I saw with the Apex UT was that it was more of a driving iron/tee club for me.  It was pretty easy to hit, but hit low bullets, which was amazing as a driving iron but not so much as a long iron replacement.
I play pretty much only Callaway clubs but I’d mess around with the Srixon u65 in your case

So, do these play closer to a long iron replacement distance wise?
I hit one at a demo day off grass and was impressed, even with a shaft I don’t care for (PX 5.5)
I thought to my eye the 27* flighted like a 5 iron.

Imo the X UT has that extra heat like a UDI. It is 5-7y carry yards longer than a comparable set iron for me

Once I get it built with tour Green 105tx that’ll jump even more. Beast in the making...

Any chance you hit the mp 18 fli hi in comparison to the callaway ut for ball speed?

Have not hit it. But I’m fairly confident in similar numbers. Very similar construction, x ut being a bit sleeker

Overwhelming majority seem to love both X ut and fli hi . Dealers choice.

I've owned both.  I prefer the x forged UT.  It does feel better and seem to launch easier for me.  The mmc fli hi is a bit more chunky as well, with a much thicker sole.  Personally, I love the UT.... more than I thought I would.

I’m sorry if this had been addressed already.  I’m thinking of adding an 18* x-forged UT.  Should I match the shaft to my irons (KBS Tour 130) or my hybrid (Hzrdus black 85 6.5)?  I have no problem launching my long irons if that matters.  Thanks

I matched mine to my irons because I treat it like a 3 iron, but you really could do either way....
