  1. So I've now been playing my first set of forged irons (ZX5's) for nearly a year and, while I love their look and that they have "forged" stamped on the hosel, to be brutally honest I'm not "feeling" the difference as compared to my G410's. Yes, I know, these aren't MB irons and perhaps that is where the real difference is felt? I am playing composite shafts and perhaps that too makes a difference? That switch was all about saving my shoulder and elbow and, by design, composite shafts reduce vibration. Pure strikes between the two don't feel or sound that much different. Perhaps like wine, I just fall into that "blue-collar" golfer pool that cannot appreciate the difference in quality? Forged vs. Cast Irons – What’s the Difference? Who Are They Suitable For? (jimfuryk.com) Articles like this frequently speak to the merits of forgings for "better players" and "feel" being a primary factor. I'm curious how many of you who have switched from cast to forged did so for the "feel" aspect and/or based on LM data? As some know from my getting new irons chronicles, my decision came down to choosing the ZX5's or G425's. Data wise they were a push - slight edge to the Srixon's. But, having played PING cast irons for over 3 decades, I thought it time to try another brand... but I'm not going to lie... that they were stamped "forged" (and at the same facility who makes Miura) was a factor. So be honest, did that "forged" stamp play a factor in your decision?
