Trying to decide on irons.

I currently own 4 iron sets ping eye2 bc, ping isi, nike vapor, and a set of mizuno mx-1000 irons. I haven't played in 4 years due to an auto accident in 2016. I haven't really touched the mx-1000 ever, the nike and ping are all customized and fitted. I am trying to decide if I should just switch staff on the nike or isi to graphite shaft or buy a used set of irons like the cleveland launcher hb, cobra t, or like the ping g400 untill my swing gets back to normal and I can start to use my mizuno clubs. Or sell mizuno, nike and isi to get fitted for a new set of irons. Was a d1 college golfer, 5 handicap prior to accident. Still use old school callaway steelhead driver. 

 

steelhead 9°, rbz 5w, ping awr 2 bc irons, isi irons, or nike vapor irons, cleveland 52°, 58°, 64° 2 ball putter.

Golf club technology s really evolving, kind of a golden age right now. you owe it to yourself to get fit if not for anything then to experience the many great iron graphite shaft options out there now, not to mention the tech in players distance heads and great looking options in classic mb, cb heads.
 Last 2 months I’ve been thru a fitting process for new iron set, I need to go graphite due to lingering thumb and elbow issues.  ( hot stix, club champ, pgass, Titleist Thursday)I have found that it is not just go find a head and then the shaft.  It’s so personal based on swing and feel.  There is no guarantee that a certain shaft profile or specific model will work best from head to head, so much variability and strange combo potential, it’s crazy.  I’ve hit practically every graphite weight option in reg and stiff flex with most cb, gi, pd heads, including new level and hogan and Japanese options.

 i have wishon 560 cb’s with kbs tour and love the feel and weight.  I also love rifle 6.0 shafts but just can’t continue with steel. Never would have expected kbs TGI at 70g to work, but it does best for me with ptx pro and forged tec.  But then the t200 worked great with tensei white which is ascending weight starting in high 80 grams. Those are the three I am deciding on.  

Rather than experimenting buying a used set,  Do a fitting or two to get the most graphite shaft exposure and find a fitter who will put adapter on your heads as well  for comparison.

good luck

If the time and cost commitments of a fitting/ordering new clubs don't bother you, I would recommend that option. A 5-year layoff, let alone any latent injuries or discomfort from an accident, is enough to make me wonder if I'm going to need something quite different than I was used to playing. Glad that you're back playing, and I'd do yourself a favor and see a fitter.

Any recommendations in the Las Vegas area for a fitter? I have been looking for an independent fitter but only can find brand ambassador fitters.
