Hi guys, looking for a little direction.  I currently have some X-22 Tour irons with the PX 5.5 shafts in them.  While I like the club, I feel like I need a bit more forgiveness as I get a bit older.  I'm 35 years old and I'm about a 13 handicap.   On a whim last week, I bought some used Titleist 714 AP2 with the C Taper Lite stiff shafts.  I can't him them consistently, which kind of cemented in my head that I need some more forgiveness.  I'm going to sell those 714's and get something else.

I really can't stand the look at address of a major game improvement iron, so was looking at something like the Steelhead XR pro Irons which I can pickup used for around $450.   That's kind of the top of my budget.   Do you think this would offer an advantage over my current X-22 Tours?  Anything else you would suggest that's maybe around that price?  I don't mind buying used or technology that is a few years old.

Bogey golfer here, just picked up set of Callaway Apex, 2014/2015 as I recall, from Callaway preowned. Around $400. Absolutely love them, easy to hit, forgiving enough, but has incredible feel with solid shots. I was on fence regarding forgiveness, but so far so good.

AP2's with S-Taper Lite Stiffs aren't going to be easier to hit than the X-22's.  The X-22's were a really good head.  I'd recommend keeping those and maybe reshafting them with new shafts that are a little easier than the Project X.   Maybe some NS Pro shafts.
