Forum Thread of the Day: “Players iron with a large head and wide sole?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from MillHill88 who is on the hunt for a players iron featuring a large head and wide sole. Preferring the “low offset of a players iron, and the wider sole of a game improvement iron”, MillHill88 receives plenty of suggestions on what could be the ideal fit from fellow WRXers.

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.

  • hackdaddy360: “Some will disagree, but I like the Titleist T-MBs. Minimal offset and a slightly larger head – yet retain a relatively thin top line. I’ve been a long time blade player but decided to give these a go after trying a number of irons. So far I’m happy with them – the notable difference for me is how much straighter my shots are vs. blades. Ball flight is also higher on average – which I didn’t really need help with – but it’s nice to see the mid irons stop on a dime after falling out of the sky like a meteor and freeze where they land.”
  • 3PuttsRLife: “Callaway XR Pro. They split time in the bag with a set of snake eyes 600 blades, and it’s an easy transition. The XR Pro has just the right amount of offset, and top line is not too thick, and the sole is just a hair wider. A lot of forgiveness in a head that suits better players’ eyes.”
  • SwooshLT: “Srixon z785……you’re welcome.”
  • mtlJeff: “The Mizuno 919 forged has a bit of a bigger head than the Srixon Z785. Those might be a good option. I remember thinking they were quite forgiving for a forged ‘players’ club.”

    This is a stupid thread
    Players Iron – large head and wide sole, UTTER NONSENSE
    How about a thread looking for a Game Improvement Iron for a high handicapper with a small head, narrow sole and ting sweet spot

    My vote would go to the Tefal FV9788. Went through my laundry like a champ and didn’t leave a crease.

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment for the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball, it even allows us to share another thing – the equipment itself.

One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.
