Choose an iron set based on your skill level and playing style:
Another key consideration when buying irons is shaft type. Most irons have steel, graphite, or multi-material shafts. Graphite iron shafts tend to be the lightest and most flexible, with the potential to maximize swing speed. Steel shafts are the heaviest — the additional weight can help improve swing consistency and accuracy. Finally, multi-material shafts offer a combination of steel and graphite, giving players added control of ball flight.
You will also need to decide what type of flex you want in your iron shafts. In general, the shaft flex you choose should correspond with your swing speed. Players with swing speeds between 77-92 MPH may get better results with a regular shaft flex, while players with swing speeds from 93-107 MPH may prefer the feel of stiff flex.
What is the difference between forged irons and cast irons?
When an iron is described as being a “forged” iron, that means the club was formed from a single piece of metal. The forging process can help ensure more consistency throughout the set and help to reduce unwanted vibration.
Cast irons are made from molten metal that is poured into pre-made molds.
What is the difference between muscleback and cavity-back irons?
The clubhead on a muscleback iron, also called a blade, is one solid piece of metal, while a cavity-back iron has a portion of its metal removed from the back, leaving a visible “cavity.” The cavity-back design allows weight to be repositioned around the perimeter of the clubhead, creating a more forgiving clubface. Blade irons typically have smaller sweet spots than cavity backs, but this gives better players more freedom to shape shots.
What is the lowest-lofted iron used in golf today
In general, the 3-iron is the longest iron used in modern golf. The 1-iron is virtually obsolete while the 2-iron has become an increasingly rare sight on the course, although players such as Tiger Woods will occasionally pull the 2-iron when the situation calls for it.
