Ping G10 Irons
Each iron has a large, deep cavity back for weight to be concentrated on the low toe and perimeter. This increases moment-of-inertia (MOI) for incredible forgiveness and consistency. The low center of gravity, positioned away from the face and low in the club head, combines with a wide sole to help produce high launch for golfers to lift the ball with authority. Additionally, each club is fit with an elastomer insert to control vibration for a solid feel upon contact.
Adams IDEA Pro Gold
Designed for better players, this favorite from Adams features two hybrids (replacing the #3 and #4 irons) which deliver penetrating ball flight. Also, six TOUR-quality irons offer exceptional feel and workability. The hybrids are designed with Boxer Technology for enhanced body shaping to promote high MOI while retaining the look and feel that makes Idea Pro hybrids a TOUR favorite. The irons (#5 through PW) also appeal to advanced players, thanks to a thin top line and sole. Constant offset throughout the bag is ideal for those who want to work their ball flight.
Titliest Mens AP2
Titleist AP2 irons are high-performance sticks with a traditionally solid feel, looks and shot control for the skilled players. A tungsten nickel box combines with multi-material construction for a low and deep center of gravity. This gives golfers pinpoint control of trajectory while dampening unwanted vibrations. A soft elastomer cushion surrounding the dual-cavity back adds to the outstanding feel of the set, making these a great pick for low-handicappers.
TaylorMade r7 CGB Max
Golfers seeking the best performance money can buy will get it in the r7 CGB MAX. This is the strongest and easiest-to-hit model in the TaylorMade line, thanks to its thin, fast face and super-sized design. SuperFast Technology reduces total club weight for faster swing speeds while the high-strength steel face creates explosive power for added distance. Also, the extra-large club head design is built with tungsten weights, boosting MOI for excellent stability and forgiveness.
Wilson Mens Di7
This models wide sole and shallow, compact blade design mean weight is concentrated low and far back for a straight ball path and incredible distance. On top of that, the wider shaft tip diameter reduces torque, thus, theres less twisting on off-center hits for more forgiveness. A short vibration duration results in less propagation up the shaft to give these irons great feel.
