Looking at new irons and Iíve read some forums where it says the lower vertical CG is better for me since I am more of a sweeper picker of the golf ball. Wondering which irons out now would fit into that category. Thanks for any info.

Maltby DBM and TE have the lowest sweet-spot (COG) of anything currently available that has been measured.  The bonus is that they look really good as well (Players cavity back).

Titleist Ap1 and Ap3 are fairly low compared to most current designs.  Also the Mizuno MP18 MMC Fli-hi....not the standard MMC model.

Believe it or not, most iron designs lately have high COG's.  A strange trend

Concur on the Maltby clubheads.  I built a 5-iron using the DBM.  I hit it very high and I am a sweeper.  Very shallow divots.  I play Callaway Apex CF16s and the Maltby 5-iron replaced the Apex 5i in my bag.  The CF16s are noted for being "easy to hit", but they have a high vertical COG and are hard to elevate off thin lies.
