For me, its the JPX-800's I currently have.  Once I got the right the shaft in them, they did wonders for my game.  Long, forgiving and predictable.  I can't ask for anything else in an iron set.

Ditto... Still considering a shaft change.

MP-60's with Rifle 5.5's have been with me for quite some time.  I still love em and don't have a need to try any other iron right now, partly out of fear of hurting my bank account.  My fitter carries Miura's which could hurt if I ever get the itch!

1. Hogan Apex redline, Apex Extra 4 shafts
2. Hogan Apex '99, Apex 4 shafts
3. Mizuno MP-32, TTDG s300 shafts (still in the bag)

The MP-69s are looking awful pretty though . . .

I am playing with whichever clubs I
happen to fancy at the moment, and
I reserve the right to change at will,
without notice and, most importantly,
without justification.

I went from a 1hdcp to a +2 when I went from Ram Tour Grinds to Ping Eye 2+, 1i-LW with titanium shafts in X flex. I thought I was going to hook these things farther left than Obama, but I was able to work them any way I wanted. Came out of the grill room after a tournament and my Ping Staff T-11 bag was gone...with those and a Scottsdale putter I was stupidly gaming. I never could get the feel back, so went on the hunt....settled with Titleist DCI's for quite awhile.

Now gaming MP57's with PX 6.0's, but looking.....

The clubs that are currently in my bag...Ping i20's. Followed closely by my previous set TM Rac LT2's, which I played for close to seven years. When I find irons I like, I stick with them.

Best gamed irons...that would be the mp68's with stock s300s.  I remember making 6 of 9 GIR's (ended up shooting a 39) with them in the back 9 at a course I love to play about a year ago...too bad my disgusting 49 in the front 9 destroyed any hopes of making a really good score.

Best feeling, that would be Miura CB202's.  The look and feel was just better than anything I've ever hit.  Simply amazing.

No doubt. Was my favorite iron I'd ever hit when it came out, and started gaming a set in Christmas time '07, and still have them. I'm considering switching the DGs to KBS S+ though!

By pure luck, a guy traded in a nice set of Cleveland 588 cb's.  Hadn't played a set of Cleveland irons since the TA5's. Played probably 40 sets of irons in the last 6 years. Theses things are unbelievable. Don't know why or how they work,but I'm just gonna keep swinging them.
