Best players distance irons for a ‘picker’ – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing players distance irons for a picker of the ball. WRXer ‘bazinky’ kicks off the thread, saying:

“I’m about to go through the fitting and selection process for a new set of irons this spring and need to try and narrow my choices down to a manageable list. Iron play is generally one of my strengths, but I could use some help with distance and elevation in the 4 and 5 iron slot as my body continues to decay due to age and my current fitness regime of too much beer and too little exercise. 

The Mizuno 223/225, T100s, and Ping i525 are my current top candidates. I would love to hear the impressions of these irons from other pickers or any other suggestions that have worked well.”

And our members have been putting forward their best 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.

  • Sofia: “I found the original T200 to be phenomenal for a picker like me (of course, I sold them because that’s what we do) and currently have the i525 on order. Hit them on a launch monitor, and numbers were great.”
  • Snowman9000: “I’m a sweeper/picker. I like to look at the lower CG models; it really helps. (Found in MPF sections at Ralphmaltby.com). The T100 looks good on that measure. Pings are usually very high CG. For what it’s worth, I just tested the 6 iron of the Maltby TS2, and I love it. My set arrives tomorrow. You might look at their TS1.”
  • dmeeksDC: “Mizuno Pro 225. Soles are thinner than others in its class. It also has nice camber. Strong lofts, which will help since you likely add loft. Low bounce in long irons to mid bounce in short irons.”
  • 95124hacker: “Fellow picker here. PXG 0311P is my recommendation.”
