Five of the longest irons for 2018

Reaching for long irons on too many fairways? Swinging out your shoes on appraches to par fours? Then maybe you should be considering one of these all-out bombers.

We’ve tested all the major irons on the market, and if it’s distance you’re looking for, these are the best.

TaylorMade M4

A game improver, but world number one Dustin Johnson has bagged these before, so they’re definitely offering up all round playability.

RIBCOR is the key piece of technology, lacalising face flext to offer more ball speeds.

TAYLORMADE LAUNCH M3/M4 IRONS

Face Slots and a Speed pocket further increase flex for some hardcore distance.

There’s also a low CG, so you’ll be popping it up in the air for extra hang time.

PING G700

Seriously sleek for a super game improver - but most importantly offering serious ball speeds and distance.

PING 2018 GEAR TEST

A large cavity and a thin face allows for huge flex, equalling ball speeds and distance.

Handle with care!

Titleist 718 AP1

The new line of 718 irons are a GolfMagic favourite, offering an option to each style of player. And for the golfer needing distance, there’s the AP1.

TITLEIST 718 IRONS REVIEW

Progressive tungsten weighting throughout the set allows for optimum flight characteristics, while a hollow body and undercut cavities eek out every available yard from your swing.

Cobra KING F8

Often overlooked, but do so to the F8 iron at your peril.

COBRA KING F8 IRON REVIEW

Packed with carbon fiber - you know, the expensive stuff used on Tour de France bikes and Formula One cars… - and utilising PWRSHELL technology, these are the best irons from Cobra to date.

Callaway Rogue

The Apex products were fiery, as the same can be said for the new Rogue irons.

360 Face Cup Technology, variable face thickness and tungsten weighting for the best flight means you’ll be nutting these further than the lumps of metal you’re currently wielding.
