Jason Day Super 2 Iron

I'll keep you posted. I sold my 712u 2 iron. Just too clunky. I'm a fan of thin soles. We'll see.

 

I'm eyeing a 716 CB 2 iron that I could bend 2-3° strong and flatten 1° +.50" make a nice "1" iron.

I can see that. I had to get used to the clunky soles (or at least to me) when I went from blade Macs to the 2013 X forged Callaway irons. Now I thought the Callys were clunky on the sole but I had no issues digging or bouncing. After I did some research on the basic design and total engineering of the club I understood how they worked. And those clubs being custom speced (not for me) and are 2* jacked that took the bounce out on the sole design some. I also talked to our Cally rep who has the engineering stuff down pretty darn well and did some research on the internet. The Cally rep did say that it was funny that with those specs that I could hit them but hey they work for me.

I've never been good with fairway woods off the deck, and struggled with the driver for a while. I can rip a 2 iron from pretty much any lie. I'd be interested in trying that club.

 

One the search for a used RBZ Tour 3 iron, going to try and bend it to 15°... hope it can hold up to 4° of bending, and whatever I need to do for the bounce. Can't mess up my stock one.

Pretty sure those RBZ's are cast. I would think you would need a forged club to handle that much of an adjustment, but I'm no expert.

They are cast. The 3 iron is 19° to start with. I plan to start with 2° and probably break it before I get to 3 or 4.

 

716 CB in the sights though. 2 iron is 18°, probably squeeze 15° out of it without too much distortion. 🤞🏼

I just found a Mizuno MP-H5 "Hitogami" 1i head with 16* of loft for only $35. I'm going to put a tour issue Hzrdus 85 red, 6.5 shaft I grabbed from eBay on and see how it goes!

Just went out tonight. I am consistently hitting my 3 iron 250-255... 3 wood is around 260 and Driver is around 260... what the F?

I would guess the trajectory on the 3i is very penetrating, meaning much more roll. You are probably carrying the 3w much farther, but less roll out due to a higher launch. Sounds like you might need to look into a new driver shaft or new driver all together?

I probably get 15-25 yards of roll with the 3 iron.

 

A new driver for sure. But I need to get fit, and there aren't many nearby fitters.

I'm in the same boat. Same distance but I know where my 3w will land vs how inconsistent I've been with the driver

I have a 19degree 3 iron in my Ping i200 they don't do a 2 iron any brands out there have a 2 iron that's worth getting? I struggle with 3 wood so I want something a bit longer so it's not a driver or 3 iron as my tee off choice!

I asked PING what they would do for a 2 iron, and they told me to order an iBlade 3 iron at 18°, +.50" and 1° flat.

 

So I bet you could do the same but 17° on the i200. They have amazing customer service, they got back to me on a weekend.

There is also callaway Apex Utility, PING crossover, Titleist 716TMB, srixion makes one, find a used TM UDI 16°.

 

There are options for a "driving iron"

I have constantly toyed with the idea of grabbing a 2 iron or even a 1 iron to replace my 3 wood, but I haven't found one that I really like the look of. The Taylormade TP driving iron is the closest I've come to finding a good looking one.

Mizuno MP-5H "Hitogami" comes in 3, 2 & 1 irons. I just put mine together, 1i at 16* and am absolutely crushing the ball with it. Carry is around 255-260 and it's rolling out close to 300 yards. Way more control than with my 3w. Feel like I have the ball on a string.

I really liked the TMB 2 iron so much so that I put the entire iron set on my serious ponder list. Really easy to hit and got pretty good distance from it.

I really enjoyed my 712u 3 bent to a "2" iron. I've heard the TMB's are even better.

Yeah they are ☺️ I was at the titleist demo day Thursday and auditioning clubs for my bag. Wandered over and asked what it was and tried it. Sweet club!
