This is why I should not read this thread. I was not pondering new irons until I read this!

AS detailed in the TSR unofficial review thread, I didn't have a great fitting experience, but I did reset up my appointment with my club champion guy for Columbus/Indigenous People's Day for a long game fitting, so woods/hybrids will be the final piece of finishing the bag and setting me up until the next big need or move comes around.

..speaking of which... ...thinking about a new iron set myself .. like too many of my club purchases the current 0211s were ummmm a bit impulsive and now .. after a lotta lessons and practice .. I think I'm ready for an official iron fitting to see what might work better...

Not really looking for distance, believe it or not!, but better control / dispersion and feel.

Been looking at the Cally DCBs or maybe Rogue ST; Cobra Forged Tec X or maybe LTDx; or ___??

So, looking at MGS testing and where you're thinking of improving a couple of ideas you don't have listed.

Callaway Rouge Max ST OS, Proto Concept C07, or maybe this new Edel SMS iron line as well.

I love the Halos, they aren’t going anywhere.
Rick and I dm’ed back and forth about the irons back then, and he knows I got a great price for the PXGs, but I always regretted selling them when I bought the Halos. There was no good reason for me to do so, other then my thinking having two sets of clubs is unnecessary.
Now I get to scratch an itch that’s been bothering me. If they’re as good as the Halos, I’ll keep them. If not, with that new 60 day 100% money back guarantee, I’ll send them back. No harm, no foul. That is what probably will happen, but at least I’ll get this sense of regret out of my system.

Are you going to go to Pete’s Golf for the fitting? They’re about the best on the Island that I know of for fittings. 
Keep an open mind no matter where you go, and rely on the fitter. 
btw if you do decide on the DCB’s, they’re terrific. A few of my friends have them and love them.
The one bad thing is, they’ll be closed out very soon. Your best bet might be get fit for a set, keep your specs and see if you can find a like new set on CPO? Same with the Rogue ST OS.

I will find out when the new Mizuno's are available for fittings and I will go and get fitted.  

They look pretty sweet.  If these JPXs don't work for me, I may try and get fitted for the Mizuno Pro 223s.

Drivers drivers and more drivers. Issue is there are so few spots with LH demos that it is a real pain to try and find a good place to get fit. At this point in the season it is also almost better to just wait for the new year and for the new launches of nexts years and maybe get a deal on a demo.

Yep,  so are the Cameron and Lamb fanatics.   I was at the PGA show in 2010 when Tablerock used to sell Cameron's and the people went crazy for all the high dollar things that were for sale;  sold out in what seemed like 10 minutes.

If you are good enough to swing a golf club then you are good enough to play them... scores may not be great, but won't stop you from smiling everytime you see them!

Very true. Most of the time I’m fairly consistent with strike location with my irons. My misses tend to be an open or shut face with the occasional thin shot in there.  I’m sure I could game them without much issue but I haven’t played blades in years and the thought of going back is very intimidating lol
