Buying new irons isn't something you need to do very often, but if you are in the market for a new set in 2021 and you're a confident ball striker, there are some incredible options on the market.
So if The Masters has got you excited to play plenty of golf this summer and you fancy treating yourself to a new set, take a look at some of our favourite irons for better players.
Callaway Apex Pro 2021 Irons
One of the most stunning sets of irons we have ever seen from Callaway and a ball striker's dream! The Callaway Apex Pro 21 benefits from their A.I. designed Flash Face Cup for the first time and brings increased ball speeds across a greater area of the club face and extremely consistent spin rates delivered even on off-centre strikes. Callaway’s proprietary urethane microspheres have been employed to provide supreme levels of feel at impact. This amazing technology helps to dampen vibrations created at impact and when combined with a one-piece 1025 mild carbon steel forged construction the Apex Pro 21 produces a superb feel for such a high performing golf club.
TaylorMade P770 Irons
The first thing to say about the P770 is that it is a truly stunning iron with beautiful clean lines and minimalistic TaylorMade branding. It has a thinner top line than the P790 and slightly less offset. The overall head size has also been reduced slightly and the overall look could certainly class as a true players iron. Feel at impact is super solid and the forged exterior of the head provides plenty of feel and feedback. Spin rates are more slightly lower than you would find in a fully forged head, but it spins plenty high enough to get the ball to stop smartly on the putting surface.
Titleist T100 Irons
With a tour-proven head shape that can only be described as beautiful, the Titleist T100 irons look superb resting in your golf bag and when placed behind the ball. Aimed at the more accomplished golfer who demands a certain level of feel and shot making ability from their irons, the T100 delivers both in spades. Boasting a fully forged head the T100 iron offers precision distance control to allow complete confidence to fire at flags and, knowing that you won't suddenly overshoot the green by twenty yards, allows relaxed and free golf swings.
PING i500 Irons
After hitting this sleek, blade-style iron you'll be amazed at its incredible speed, distance, and towering trajectory, with stopping power that gives you a real competitive advantage. The forged C300 maraging-steel face, metal-wood-like construction and hinged cavity create the conditions for unprecedented speed, power and distance. A forged, C300 maraging-steel face combines with a 17-4 stainless steel body for metal-wood-like performance, resulting in faster ball speeds and much longer, higher-trajectory shots with stopping power. The muscle-back geometry helps to hinge the precision-milled, forged, C300 maraging steel face, which flexes, adding dynamic loft while increasing ball speed, trajectory and distance.
Mizuno JPX921 Tour Irons
The 921 Tour maintains the strikingly beautiful looks of the 919 and there can be no doubt that it looks superb both at rest in a golf bag, and when placed with intent behind the ball. With classic muscle back compact lines and a Pearl Brush finish to reduce glare, they offer the aesthetics that better players demand. The sole of the 921 Tour irons gets progressively thinner as they move into the short irons to allow for greater precision on the all-important scoring shots and a thicker and improved cavity pad provides increased feedback at impact. Ball speed has been increased without the need for cranking the loft beyond suitable better player levels and so spin levels are maintained to allow for aggressive, flag hunting iron play.
Srixon ZX7 Irons
Srixon’s ZX7 Irons deliver a players irons that looks and feels like a blade while offering more speed and total control. Experience incredible feel and maximum shot shaping ability with the ZX7 Irons. Featuring tungsten in the toe of ZX7's long and mid irons (4i-7i) increases MOI for more stability while the forged 1020 Carbon Steel body absorbs vibrations for an extremely soft feel. For versatility, V-Shaped soles glide smoothly through turf, even if you strike slightly behind the ball. ZX7 Irons also feature the resurgence of the popular sole notches. A true tour cavity design, mass repositioned to ZX7's sweet spot and perimeter provide a remarkably soft feel at impact and increased workability. Progressive Grooves in the 8i through PW are sharper, narrower, and deeper for more spin and stopping power on approach shots into the green.
