What is everyones favorite new irons?

Recommended Posts

Personally speaking, there's little that's new that has a lot of appeal for me.  So, new irons for me would be just "new to me."  

I've given thought to a few different sets over the offseason.  Palmer Standards.  Wilson Staff Fluid Feel blades from the late 80s.  Maxfli Australian Blades (the 99 model).  Ping Eye2 (OG, not Eye2+, already have a set of those).

Ultimately, it comes down to my having 19 sets of irons.  I own a few sets that I've never taken on the course.  Seems silly to buy another set.  I'm thinking I'll feed my new irons Jones by taking a set I've not played, my 78 Staff Tour Blades, and refitting them for use with a couple length adjustments, new grips, and lofts and lies, and taking them for a few spins.  When the courses finally open, that is.

Recently saw the new Ben Hogan Icon irons and they are beautiful, especially in the black finish. Yes, they do look like the Apex 50 but Hogan has repeated designs as have others.

Sub70 is super solid. They look and feel great with an awesome price tag attached. It's worth looking into their demo program to try out. I just put the 639 CB/MB combo in the bag and am very impressed.

I've tried may irons and can honestly say that now that I've tried the mc501's I've stopped my search. Best feeling iron I've ever hit.  Long irons feel like butter.

If you like switching iron and trying different irons every year these are not for you.

I purchased a set of Honma TW-X irons and wedges with Aerotech Steelfiber i110cw stiff shafts...love them. They are long but I do not get the jumpers like I experienced with P790 and Ping i500. They are forged so easy to bend...much easier that P790. Good spin rates with plenty of height for good stopping power.
