NEW! 10 OF THE BEST: GAME IMPROVEMENT IRONS 2014

Conclusion

Sitting down to put our heads together and discuss the testing, we asked ourselves which of the irons would perform best in the scoring. It quickly became clear that we both fancied a neck-and-neck finish between the PING G25 and the Callaway X Hot.

Fitting then that, having written down our scores without consulting and then taking the average of each, these should be the top two.

While PING and Callaway were deserving winners, Mizuno, despite not being renowned for game improvement irons, performed superbly with the JPX-825 to take third place.

We were really impressed by the variety on offer and this club test provides something for everyone. There were also some interesting results.

The Cobra Baffler is not in any way pleasing to the eye but was one of the best performers overall, while similarly the Cleveland 588 did a job but is not going to win any awards for beauty.

The Adams V4 and Wilson Ci-11 are good, solid clubs which will do a job and look great, but we suspect most will go for the “name” of the TaylorMade RocketBladez.

And finally, a special mention to the Yonex VXF and the Benross Quad Speed RIP which not only performed well but provide tremendous value for money.
