Top 5 Forgiving Irons For Mid to High Handicapers of 2018

2018 has seen some fantastic golf clubs be released. Especially in the market of game improvement. Which irons are the best five for forgiveness and game improvement for mid handicappers and high handicappers. In this video I go through my top five that I have seen so far.

  1. WOW!!! do you have a flat swing. I use Titleist AP 3 and like them. When you hit them good there super solid miss hit them and there not to bad.

  2. Wilson D350 are much longer iron than C300. Also very forgiving. Try them.Thanks for the review. I am new to your channel

  3. Hi James, really Enjoyed your Game improvement irons review….Would love to see you Review Cobra One Length Max

  4. I really like the AP1's .. Was looking at buying a set but they do not offer irons customize-able to an upright 3 or 4 degrees lie angle – and a longer shaft length (+1.5 to +2.0 inches) option.. Looks like they only offer a max 2 degree upright. That is not enough for me and is totally unfortunate.. Thankfully many other companies offer the ability to customize irons the way I need them. … but I reeeally wanted a set of AP1's!!!

  5. My fitter put me through the paces with Callaway Rogue, Taylor Made M4, and Mizuno 900-JPX. And the winner was……..

    …Mizuno. After some tweaking with length, lie, and weight, I was clustering the 6 iron with a pleasant draw in a 10-yard diameter circle at 170-ish yards. Can't wait until they arrive next week for finishing.

  6. Hey what about us seniors? any recommendations for graphite shafted clubs..Would really appreciate your views

  7. First video i have watched on your channel. Noticed your backswing – is your backswing like this to prevent and over the top swing? I have just started back golf after 10 years or so and I'm having trouble with a looping at the top and coming across so I'm noticing people's swings more than ever lol. Nice video subbed.

  8. Have to wonder why a Wilson club would be listed, I have never seen Wilson clubs since taking up the game several years ago. Does anyone aspire to Wilson ownership? Have to think the new Callaway Rogues would place on this short list.

  9. it's Gordon Ramsey of the golfing world! πŸ™‚
    all that's missing is, these clubs are F#*%&'#+*g brilliant or for F*'#&ks sake go and buy these F*'#&%king clubs today!

  10. How does one golf club hit consistent good shots every time and another not (being hit by same player)? Just tell me how that happens from a technical or design point of view. I'd love to know.
    I understand that people will prefer one club from another but I do not accept the club can become a perfect ball striking machine all on its own.
    Genuine question.

  11. Thanks James. For me it came down to the JPX 900 and the Titleist AP1. It was a tough decision but I bought the AP1’s. Both are great clubs. The trajectory and forgiveness of the 4 and 5 irons really stood out, for me.

  12. Great review James. I currently hit the TM Burner 2.0 irons and I'm looking to buy a new set.I've hit the Calloway Rogue, Ping G400 (but not the G700), the AP1, and the M4. I have narrowed my choices down to the AP1 and the M4, but now thinking I should hit the G700 (don't want to complicate thins too much). What do you see as the biggest difference between the M4 and the AP1?

  13. I got a set of Cobra F8s (the standard length ones) earlier this year and I absolutely love them. I don't think I would recommend them for links golf, though, because they do tend to get the ball really high into the air. On the parkland courses I usually play, it is perfect, since it allows me to hit them over trees (something I was never able to do confidently with my old irons) and to have them stop quickly on the greens even though I don't put a massive amount of spin on the ball.

  14. I got the taylormade m4 irons a couple of months ago and I did see a big improvement in my iron game

  15. Wow, another great and informative golf equipment video. Just like my still favorite golf Youtube (Mark Crossfield) use to do πŸ™‚ – I'm looking at the Ping G700 or the AP1's for my next set.
