It’s frequently asked question time. Something I get asked all the time, ” How do I choose the right irons?”. Every manufacture has some many different options, shafts, grips, all that stuff withstanding,how do you just choose the right head?I’m going to come grab the camera real quick, show you what I’ve set up on my workbench here and just talk about the different design aspects of irons and then tell you about how we choose and help you figure it out.
So hang with us, I’m going to grab the camera and then take you over. Alright, here we go.
So we’re going to go walk inside the fitting bay here to my tool chest where I’ve set up all these different iron heads here. And basically what you see here is just 4 different manufacturers and what all they carry here. So, we’ve got Mizuno at the top end. The way I’ve set this up is, you’ve basically got a Players club over here on the left. A game improvement club over here on the right. And the everybody seems to offer something that is sort of in the middle here.So what you’re looking at in a game improvement club, all of these have the blade portion or muscle back portion of the club taken out and now you’ve got perimeter weighting, you can actually see down in there. That weight is distributed around the perimeter,
and what that means is, sweet spot hits feel good, toe hits don’t feel as good, heel hits
don’t feel as good but those off center hits go about the same distance as the center hits. You also see wider soles on all of these clubs. So if you compare that, those wide soles to
say like, the sole of a traditional blade, it’s much thinner. So you’ve got sole width and cavity that really plays the biggest difference between the game improvement clubs and the traditional blades. So you can see that we’ve got a traditional blade from PXG, Titleist, Taylormade and Mizuno. Everybody seems to offer something that fits somewhere in the middle so if you’re not a game improvement person who plays only sometimes or is beginning at the game but you’re maybe not the low handicapper that likes the look of a really small, sleek blade that can be tough to hit but if your game is good it feels the best, there is something in the middle from pretty much every manufacturer. So that’s how we go about figuring it out, if your strike is good and you like a pure feel, we might put you in something that’s a sleek little blade or we’re going to find the middle ground or the other end of the
spectrum for you. So that’s the basics of how iron heads are designed: sole width, cavity back or not. Come see us here at Profectus Golf and we will help you figure out where you fall in
this spectrum and get the most performance out of your game.
