The Paradox of Choice

So the big question is … with so much choice out there, where does one even begin the process of purchasing a new set of irons?

It struck me during a recent round of golf, my cherished Titleist irons are nearing 13 years old. And whilst they still produce rare moments of brilliance, the time has finally come, albeit reluctantly, to put them out to pasture and splash out on a shiny new set.

I guess it’s like clinging to your Rolodex until the moment you get a smartphone and then wondering how you ever lived without it.

Callaway, Nike, Mizuno, Taylormade, tour preferred, hybrid, forged, graphite, stainless steel, regular or firm flex … the list goes on. How do I know what is right for me? Is the answer in custom fitting, radar technology and shot analysis?

Put simply, I’m a 8 handicap golfer based in South East London in search of men’s irons that will make me hit higher, longer and straighter.

Any suggestions welcome please.

  2. Hayley,

    Demo, demo and then get fit.

    All clubs are great or else the manufactures wouldn’t be in business. It all comes down to whether or not you like the look and feel of the club. Once you find that one your confidence will be in the right place.

    With that said I’ve always felt Titleist makes the best looking and feeling irons.

    Let us know what you go with!

  4. A couple of guys at my club have recently purchased new irons, ( why do they call them irons, there is no iron in them ) They chose the new Cobra irons and both of them were happily impressed with the extra distance and control they are experiencing.
