Many golfers believe their irons should reflect their own personal style. Just how successful were 2013’s many iron releases?

I’ve tried every major brand’s new iron set for this year, and here’s how I’d rank them. Be sure to leave a comment below with your thoughts on the list and what you think should or should not be included.

TOP 5:

These are some Callaway Xhot Pro Irons.

The Xhot Pro irons’ combination of feel and length makes them extremely risky. To those who are working to reduce their handicap, these irons are the real deal. You’d be fooled into thinking they were authentic if you saw them.


G25 Irons by Ping

Ping’s G25 irons are a marked improvement over previous models. As a result of their work, golfers can now feel confident in their iron’s distance, forgiveness, and feel thanks to the narrower soles and lighter perimeter weighting. The G25s are essentially a game-improvement iron disguised as a player’s iron. Check out the G25’s if you’re in the market for a set of irons that are both visually appealing and easy to hit.

Nike’s Pro VR Forged Sets

The elimination of pure blades in the 8-PW slot is the biggest letdown of the new VR Forged Pro Combos. That would have made these irons truly legendary, in my opinion. The middle irons, from No. 6 to No. 8, are so well made that they almost seem out of place in a set designed for players.


Tour Irons by TaylorMade®, the RocketBladez®

The quality of the Rocketbladez Tour irons cannot be denied, despite the fact that Taylormade’s unconventional marketing strategies may not sit well with many golfers. These irons are competitive for best all-around model because they excel in playability, aesthetics, distance, and precision.


Set of Mizuno MP-54 Irons

Mizuno improved upon their already high-quality forged irons by taking the best of what they offer. The MP-54 has the sound and feel of the MP-59 series (the best irons ever, in my opinion), with the added benefit of increased forgiveness. Anyone, regardless of their handicap, would enjoy playing with these irons. You’ll feel like you’re sinking into a bed of pillows when using these irons.
