If I were you, I would go try out the Callaway X24 irons. They are very soft and are wonderful. I just bought a set for this golf season and my first day of practice with the team I was hitting the 5 iron 220. Wonderful irons.

They are, even if you pick up a set of x20s or x22s used from 3balls, you'll be in love.

Fishboy, I appreciate the input and suggestion on the irons! I always thought the X series irons looked big and clunky, however these are a big improvement over the older models! With that being said, Ive always been in love with how blades look etc, and now that Im playing a lot more golf again and lowering my handicap (I stopped playing after high school and just graduated college) I think I have to go with the Mizuno MP-69s!

A friend on the team has the Mizunos. They too are an excellent iron. I like the weight of the club head when I swing, I feel like I get more club head speed without incorporating my arms at all. Can't complain about mizuno though, had a set back in high school before I traded those for x18s Smile

Yeah Ive only ever heard good things about Mizunos! And I just think they look slightly sleeker than the Titleist MPs.

I like the Cobra's... they seems to let me control the ball a bit more than the others in addition to what seems to be a larger sweet spot. For one reason or another, I tend to have more solid hits with lofts that are predictable and consistent. I must add though... everyone I play regularly with has the calloways in their bags.


...actually, all of this is a lie...

------------------

I demo'd quite a few sets before going with the x20's a few years back...they felt the best...didn't look like a forged blade iron for sure but super nice feel...and the price was right...only thing now is i feel like there is too much offset...sometimes a good release ends up as a wicked hook...i am thinking of "demo"ing a similar game improvement iron but with less offset...still perimeter waited though...i would like to hit something mizuno...never have

I am new to the cigar world but not so much the golf. Not knowing what you currently have in the bag I would be looking at the burner2.0s very forgiving TONS of distance with a fairly sleek look and thin top line. I have never been a big fan of Callaway irons, and another option in the cobra family is the amp irons if you can deal with orange. I hit em straight.

I've been playing with Mizuno MP-58s for a couple years now. Great clubs.

I've got the burner plus irons and they have a great feel to em. Very forgiving.

Mizuno all the way. They have made the best irons for a long long time. Tiger won a bunch with a set of MP 14's. I have a set put up.
