A question on my side.
i am currently doing some buying and selling of golf equipment as part time.
so landed myself with these 3 iron sets, which are my favs:
~Titleist AP2 716, fitted withs steelfiber i80 stiff
~mizuno MP18 MB fitted with steelfiber i80 stiff as well
~Srixon Z745 D300
while i currently have been switch between mp18 and 716, and play consistently to 17HC, but I think i may have jumped too far ahead with assumption of my skills to execute these wonderful irons.
I thought or have been thinking to switching to a more fogiving irons to ensure more consistency in ball striking.
jumped up with joy when a set of srixon z745 dropped onto my hand. Beautiful irons and read that it is forgiving with shot playability. All 3 have not too much diff offset or loft, but only the sole is slightly thicker for Srixon.
But based on my swing, mizuno has the more accurate and straight flight of all. But distance and consistency of ball striking is not to my wish. AP2 is fine and slightly better overall: with a slight pull. But Srixon, while i love the looks and perceived forgiveness, the ball just keep pulling more. My swing is the same. It may not be best but it works for me.
so my question to the players here, other than my skill problem, are there difference between these irons?
Are forgiving irons or thicker sole tend to encourage close face? Would love to understand more.
