For good players, original UDI. For mid caps, GAPR mid is outstanding.

Anyone hit both the King Utility and the MCC Fli Hi? I just picked up the forged tec black and they are 5-pw. I need a 4i. I have an MMC Flihi already not being used, not sure if the king utlity would really offer any more performance or forgiveness. The king forged are  strong lofted so the 5i is going to get bent a little weak, the 4i will play in between a 3/4 iron. I have an 18* U65 already in the bag as well so want something in between that and a 25* 5i

I had heard of the brand RomaRo before, but I’m really not familiar with it at all. This club kind of surprised me, actually. I just always thought RomaRo was one of those garish Japanese club companies who’s irons come up in my eBay browsing that are like plated in gold and the drivers look like ridiculously shiny suits of armor, and they are priced outrageously - like tens of thousands for irons and thousands for a driver. Clearly, I was mistaken, this is a really nice looking club, and while not stupid expensive, it’d definitively fall in the upper end of the domestic market. Like PXG prices.

I just bought (about 3 hours ago) a Ping Eye 2 Blue Dot 2-iron for $15 on Ebay.  I want to say it's like 18 or 19*.  I remember hitting my buddy's back in College and absolutely launching them.  Truly these irons stand the test of time.  One of the best iron sets ever made.

For me it's the Nike Vapor Fly Pro 2 iron. Have mine fitted with a C-Taper 120 S and it is money - 220 to 230 yards carry, completely uninterested in crosswinds - round a Links course it is an absolute weapon.

Brooks kept the 3 iron in his bag for ages after he left Nike, which is a good enough endorsement for me.

Might swap the shaft for an S400 as the C-Taper is a bit light for me, but love the head. Great off the tee or the deck.

I love the original Eye 2 BeCu 1 iron!  Also, my new Callaway X Forged UT 18° is just flat out amazing.  I can hit it high enough off the turf to hold a green, and it's hot enough to use very effectively off the tee.  It has quickly become one of my favorite clubs.

I am looking for a driving iron currently, but have issues with high ball flight. My irons are JPX 900 tours with c-taper 130's but would prefer a graphite shaft in a driving iron. I was able to try a 790 UDI the other day with the HZRDUS black 6.5 but had issues pulling it left and high, in addition, I was able to try a c-taper 120 on it and hit high slices.

I am going back and forth between a Srixon U85 and the TM 790 UDI, but am looking for input on shafts. Driver ss is 108-110 for reference and am looking to hit low bullets off the tee.

Thanks in advance!

What I like about the Ballista is ability to play this club like an iron because of its shape. Horizontal Workability is good but flihi, udi or ut perform slightly better for this task. The flight is very consistent - the face is very forgiving and the ball comes off hot due to the ti face. It is fairly easy to play hi and low shots.

No contest.  Titleist T-MB 3 iron with Tour AD shaft.  I no longer own a hybrid and the 3 wood has become a headcover holder only.  Crazy long and easy to hit.

While waiting for my Ping Eye 2 2-iron to get here, I've been pondering shafts.  Considering Graphite.  It's an 18.5 degree lofted club.  Keeping my driver swing speed of mid-90's in mind, should I be eyeing an R-flex or an S-flex.  Would definitely want something with a higher trajectory.  I'd like to keep the shaft under $50.  Can y'all recommend some shafts?  Thanks!

While waiting for my Ping Eye 2 2-iron to get here, I've been pondering shafts.  Considering Graphite.  It's an 18.5 degree lofted club.  Keeping my driver swing speed of mid-90's in mind, should I be eyeing an R-flex or an S-flex.  Would definitely want something with a higher trajectory.  I'd like to keep the shaft under $50.  Can y'all recommend some shafts?  Thanks!

Aldila VS Proto iron shafts. They can still be found on Ebay for cheap.

I just got a Ben Hogan Ft worth Hi 21. Replaced the KBS 90 with a PX black 6.5 extended to 40” and strengthened 1 deg. 1 range session in and I love it! Problem is that it’s up against my fav club in the bag, my TI Aeroburner small head 5 wood. Good problem to have.

I can't hit a fairway wood, so i run an M1 2-hybrid at 15.5 degrees, and a callaway x-utility at 18 degrees between the driver and my 4 iron.  There were quite a few auditions to fill the slots, but this setup hits my gaps, and I feel confident over both clubs regardless of what shot I need to hit.

I just picked up an Accra FX 300H shaft & Mizuno MP 18 Fli Hi head to mess around with. I'm sure it'll be the best driving iron/ long iron replacement I've ever hit, until it's not and it's on to the next one.

For me, the longest lasting long iron replacement has been the MP25.

I know it’s not technically a driving iron or hybrid, but it’s really easy to hit and it has more positive attributes to it than other driving irons / utility irons that I’ve had. My reasoning for it is that I’ve always had trouble finding one that I liked off the turf. Every one I’ve tried has been great off the tee, and that’s where the MP25 could use a little extra, but off the turf, it’s the closest thing to my iron set in terms of looks and turf interaction that offers a good deal more forgiveness.

What's actually in the bag...
Callaway Epic SZ-9.0-Aldila X-Torsion Green Mamba-70TX
Callaway Epic SZ 15* - PX Handcrafted Yellow 75 6.5
Callaway Apex UT 21* - C- taper S+
Miura LH LTD Black Blades: 3-p w/ DG TI X7's.
Cleveland RTX 3: 50-54 w. C-Taper S+
Scratch 1018: 58 w/ C-Taper S+
Piretti Potenza / Odyssey MX #7

Others gamed on occasion:
Callaway BBA (2014)
Callaway 13 X Forged w/ AMT X100's (hard stepped once)
Scratch Golf 51,55,58,59
Wilson Staff Kirk Currie Milled
