Tested some irons nobody talks about, but damn they’re impressive! – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

In our forums, our members have been reacting to a review post on Tour Edge’s C522 irons. WRXer ‘BrainCramp52’ recently got the chance to try out the clubs and was mightily impressed with the irons, saying:

“I’m talking about the Tour Edge C522 irons. Went to the local Golf Shack the other day while waiting for my wife to get out of a doctors appt. They have basically had nothing to hit in the iron department for the last year and a half for lefties. I was wandering around, and here tucked away in the corner was 2 sets of the C522 irons in regular and stiff flex LH! I play AP2’s, so these look pretty massive, but when I set a 7 iron down I didn’t find myself wanting to puke.

I’ve hit some demo GI irons like the Callaway DCB and Ping G425’s in 2021 so since I had time to kill and they weren’t busy I decided to hit some balls with them. The conclusion I came away with was that for $559 for 5 – AW wedge, I’d buy these in a heartbeat. Forgiveness and feel were off the charts for an iron in this category. They felt very soft for a cast club. In fact, they felt every bit as good as the forged Callaway DCB. I

even warmed up to the looks of the things. After a few swings, the topline didn’t look that big. What I’m trying to say is they are definitely worth looking at if you’re in the market for that style of iron. They are every bit as good as the Pings and Callaway’s, and that kind of surprised me.”

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.

  • firedad: “I went from PXG 0211s to TE E721, couldn’t be happier.”
  • Itsjustagam: “Not sure why this would surprise you. Tour Edge is an established company with an impressive group of Champions Tour members playing their stuff. There really are not any secrets to making good clubs that are only known to the big-name manufacturers. Tour Edge, Sub 70 etc., all make equipment that matches what the others sell.”
  • LukeDonaldsTiger: “I was surprised to see that John Daly had a full bag of TEE at the PNC tourney. He came from Ping i200‘s; that’s quite an accomplishment to get him to play their irons. I’m curious how the C 721 irons feel and play. I had the EXS 220 driver (loved looks and sound, my new Cally Epic Max LS is just longer) and still have two EXS 220 hybrids that I love. Plus a CBX 119 2H that’s an absolute rocket launcher. TEE makes great stuff, but the irons are kind of unknown.”

    i’vs a serious equipment additiction… Played with pxg02x11, callaway apex, taylor made 790 and g425 pings (yes, all last year 🙁 ). in October a PGA Superstore friend tried to fit me into Titleist T100-T300 – i wasn’t happy with feel of neither. Then he pulled TE C721 off the rack for me to try… Bought them after 15 min in the simulator booth. They’re in my bag since. Feel/Look/Price – can’t beat this combination. give it a try !

    I’ve been playing the CBX Forged irons for about 3 years. Went to PGA super store, hit all of the players cavity backs that were out at the time, and those just felt and performed the best for me. I really wanted to get the Cobra Cb Forged all murdered out, but there was no comparison in how I was hitting them and how they felt against the Exotics. Now I bag all Exotics besides driver, wedges, and putter. Great brand.

The cleanest looking game improvement irons – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing clean looking game improvement irons. WRXer ‘SteelyDan’ kicks off the thread saying

“I am playing Mizzy JPX 919 forged but am looking for more forgiveness and launch in the longer irons. I tend to hit them fat. Guess the Hot Metals are the obvious choice but a least the 919 HM felt dead to me.

Any other recommendations with a clean look (no funky badges etc)? Doesn’t have to be the very latest model.”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts and 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.

  • Carolina Golfer 2: “I like the looks of the Titleist T300 snd the upcoming Wilson D9 Forged look incredible.”
  • Lefty87: “I went directly from the 919F to PXG Gen 3 P. They have a very similar profile, but the PXG’s are longer, more forgiving, and have just as good of a feel, if not better than the 919F. Not to mention they are only $133 a stick right now, and they’ll be at your door in two weeks.”
  • chocolate_rehab: “I was going to say ZX4 – that’s more the SGI model from Srixon. ZX5 is more game improvement. As far as looks go for this sort of iron, ZX4 and Ping G710 are the cleanest and best looking imo.”
  • A.Princey: “Maltby DBMs or the equivalent, TE(more traditional loft).”
