New Irons

6 posts in this topic

I have a question for everyone. I am thinking of getting some new irons. Thought maybe I could get a good deal at the end of the year. I am an average golfer (shoot mid 40's). Am wondering what kinds of REASONABLY priced irons people would recomend. I know you should try the irons yourself before buying, which is what I am planning to do. I am just looking for a starting point of which irons to look at and try when I get to the stores. Thanks in advance for all the help.

Cobra makes pretty good clubs at a reasonable price. Cleveland does too. Check out the models that came out 2 or 3 years ago and you can get a very good deal.

Maybe you can state a price range that you condsider "resonable" irons range from 99 to 999 bucks!

I second Cobra, over the last few years they have really improved and pices are much lower than other big brands.

Titleist actually owns Cobra not many people know that.

Also you might want to check out used, you can get some great irons in new or nearly new condition at great prices so check out the "pre-owned" options as well.

I’d definitely check out the TaylorMade rac OS2s.

Alright, here is another question. I tried quite a few clubs and really like the Nike Ignite irons. Anybody else have these and if so what do you think. Am really leaning toward these. tried several types of irons. Really did not like the adams ovations.

We can give our insights on different brands and models, but it still comes down to what feels good, looks good to your eye, and how well you hit them on your decision to buy! All the companies make great clubs. It just boils down to what you like, and what you feels fits your game the best.

    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.    
    • Well, that was interesting! The same trade that would have been good last year is seemingly brilliant this year. Butler immediately shores up our defense and creates additional scoring for this young, suddenly legitimate team. Great move to start the new year, and a good draft prospect at #16 to boot. While I do like Lavine, we seemed to do a bit better with him sidelined which is not an indictment on his talent, but rather proof that he didn't quite fit our scheme. All in all, this was about as lopsided a trade as I can think of and we should be pretty darn happy with the return we got!
