Forum Thread of the Day: “What irons have given you the most enjoyment ever?”



Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from i*windows who asked fellow GolfWRX members what set of irons gave or continue to provide the most enjoyment while out on the course. There are a whole host of irons mentioned, from different club-making eras too, with the unique feel the irons give the individual often making the difference.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion at the link below and have your say.

  • TheInfidel: “Just put a set of 900 Forged in the bag with ProjX LX 6.5s – WOW.  Different class of ball flight.  Crazy forgiving
  • craz-e: “My first set of blades the Mizuno MP68’s. They gave me a greater enjoyment in hitting golf shots and a greater love for the game in general.
  • jar59: “Best scoring clubs, best clubs in the wind and best feeling sweet spot were my 985 Tourney Customs with reverse muscleback and rounded toe.  I played them in 2 thru pw (10) from 1976 thru 1981
  • BCULAW: “Ping S56 with Your Issue S400 soft stepped twice, purple dot at +1.  I would never have guessed the specs would work in a million years,  but these were the absolute best feeling and performing irons I have ever hit. Pure joy to play.
  • mogc60: “Probably owned 50 sets of irons in my life and absolutely without question, the best irons I ever played were MacGregor VFoil M25 blades with Satin ProjectX 6.5. Most consistent, best feeling, best ball flight.

    Ping i25 with the Ping CFS stuff shaft. Still have the Eye-2 Gorge lob wedge that I got at the same time. Regret trading those now.

      That’s how you would rate a woman… not a golf club… unless yer a jerk0ff gearhead

    In tennis, it’s the strings that are the performance factor and the frame only holds the strings. In golf, the clubhead only impacts the ball for 0.0005 seconds while the shaft affects the swing action. Ignorant golf and tennis players think it’s the club and frame that gives enjoyment… because of the colors and shapes. Oh well, as long as it sells equipment.

      Droop, kick, torque so much more important for consistency, accuracy and enjoyment all derive from the shaft, not the clubhead.

      $150+ for each iron , with a $30.00 shaft with a fancy paint job, is a con game.

        Shaft dynamics is too complex for the gearhead brainlet… the back of the clubhead is all that matters. It’s love at first sight for these gearhead jerk0ffs.

    A really beautiful set of clubs in every way – Adams A4 Forged PX 6.0 shafts (as pictured), getting ready to give them to my son (hard to part with, but they were only my travel set). However, shot my lowest round (74) ever with Tommy Armour 845s. Honestly the closest set of irons to the A4s, are my current gamers – PXG 0811s with NS Pro Modus3 105 shafts that I purchased through the PXG for Heroes Program last month.

    Mizuno MX 17. First set of irons I had that weren’t hand me downs from the 80’s. I legitimately gained 20 yards on every club over the Par Champs I had in the bag before those. Took my game to another level and made me enjoy golf 100x more.

    Ping Eye 2+, hands down best set ever, got them out of the closet this year, re-gripped them and they are in my bag. Easy to hit and feel great!

      PING ZING2… hottest heads ever… straight flight only… no draw or fade because of the extreme head weighting.

Wedges that have a significantly softer feel – GolfWRXers discuss



In our forums, our members have been discussing wedges. WRXer ‘sheezymaneezy’ is on the hunt for some softer feeling wedges than what he currently has, and reaches out to our members who have been sharing their suggestions in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Honman: “Without going too niche, I’d suggest trying Mizuno’s T22 wedges as they are forged.”
  • reider69: “I just moved from SM8s to Mizuno S23 wedges.  Softer by a mile.  Feel like a buttery Mizuno iron.”
  • alarsen727: “Sub70 wedges are forged and are soft and a great price I might add. Love mine.”
  • elwhippy: “Bump Mizuno. Add in Fourteen and the forged Pings. You could pick up some forged Vokey and Cleveland Japanese models off Rakuten or Ebay.”

‘Handicap down to 7, should I ditch the GI irons?’



In our forums, our members have been discussing when or if there’s an optimal time to move away from game improvement irons. WRXer ‘ThreePuttForPar’ has recently gotten the golf bug again and has worked his way down to a 7 handicap, and reaches out to our members saying:

“When I got the bug again I went through a few sets and settled on Titleist T300. Started back shooting high 80s- mid-90s, depending on the course, but I have got back to breaking 80 once in a while on easier courses. 

I have been loving T300’s forgiveness and distance, especially when first getting back into it. But now that I’m finding the face more often again. I’m really contemplating something more like a Srixon ZX5/7, Miz 225 or Jpx pro, P770/p790, i525…

I’ve also never been custom fit, ever, in 25 years of golf. I’ve always just used the 90 return policy at my local Roger Dunn golf shop to “fit myself” by keep swapping clubs till I get something I like.

Anyone else blow the dust off their game with GI irons and then move back to mid-playerish irons? Did you see any benefits other than feel? Do custom fits really make that big of a difference if you live near a shop where you can just keep trying all the different off the rack sets?”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts on the topic in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • chinaski: “Try and get some irons you can test off the grass. Turf interaction is more important than forgiveness. GI only really help if you have trouble with launch or are always hitting off the toe.”
  • Is Golf Fun Or Work: “I’ve played with folks using GI irons that are near scratch. Why change what’s been working?”
  • golfinbrad: “Nothing wrong with doing a fitting. Trying different head/shaft combos can be both fun and educational. I don’t recommend going in with the mindset I’m getting a new set, period! See how they feel, look and perform to what you have. Congrats on getting the handicap down. That doesn’t mean you need to ditch the GIs. If you are hitting them well, I would stick with them unless you find something better. Replacing irons is not the same as a driver.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about the most forgiving drivers



In our forums, our members have been discussing drivers. WRXer ‘Big_BenB’ wants to find the most forgiving driver currently available, and our members have been sharing their best picks in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Crimson62185: “I haven’t personally tested drivers recently, but from early reviews and feedback I’ve heard from several fitters, I believe it has to be the Ping G430 Max.”
  • Switter: “I have hit many drivers from all the big manufacturers over the years. The Callaway Epic Flash sz is so far the most forgiving longest driver I have ever played. It would take one heck of a driver to kick it out of my bag.”
  • lambo428: “G400 Max is very good but the Cobra Radspeed XB and the Cobra LTDx LS are better.”
  • philly2kuk: “The common consensus is Ping make the most forgiving drivers, but you will get other drivers mentioned here due to people’s personal preference.”
