Golf clubs

If you are struggling to get to the green, you might benefit from adding a reliable iron or set of irons to your bag.

Here we take a look at six of the most forgiving irons for the amateur player to consider.

Taylormade Stealth Irons

TaylorMade Stealth Irons were rated as the best game-improvement irons available in 2022.

It is no surprise that Taylormade irons get great distance, but these irons are also renowned for their accuracy. They are also praised for their feel.

The Taylormade Stealth Irons offer probably the closest thing to a guaranteed score improvement unless you are already using a comparable set of Irons.

Tour Edge Exotics E723 irons

The secret of the Tour Edge Exotics E723 irons is the Diamond Face VFT, which greatly extends the sweet spot of these game-improvement irons.

That technology is complemented by a 360-degree undercut that adds weight to the head’s perimeter for increased stability.

Put together, you have a set of irons that will give most players greater distance and accuracy.

Wilson Dynapower irons

Wilson Dynapower Irons have been close to being the best in the world for nearly 70 years.

As sporting equipment pioneers, Wilson has developed their own AI supercomputer, which helped them design the latest iteration of the famous irons.

Ball speeds are maximised across the face, with a focus from the centre to the toe, where Wilson say that 10+ handicap golfers strike 65% of shots. The Wilson Dynapower irons feature a high MOI head design to offer more forgiveness on off-centre strikes and a low centre of gravity for greater launch and sharper descent angles.

Cobra Aerojet irons

Cobra’s answer to forays into AI-designed is their H.O.T Face Technology, which sports a variable thickness pattern that delivers more efficient speed and spin across the face.

Their suspended PWR-BRIDGE weight design offers a more flexible face and sole to maximise launch and ball speed. This tech was inspired by a Leonardo da Vinci bridge design.

That face flexibility is a genuine game-changer for many who get their hands on these irons.

The JPX 923 Hot Metal iron line is ideal for game improvement and sports several cutting-edge technologies that make them among the most forgiving available.

The JPX 923 Hot Metal irons are a great all-around clubs and are ideal for the majority of golfers who want speed, high launch, and explosive results.

This range introduces a new material, nickel chromoly which Mizuno claims gave the Hot Metal irons so much additional ball speed, their engineers switched focus to feel and stopping power.
