New Irons Worth Testing – Best Products On The Market
With various designs, an iron model’s distance is relative. The range of lofts on most 7-irons stretches from 26 to 34 degrees. As such, one brand’s 7-iron might be equivalent to another brand’s 5-iron. Request a qualified clubfitter to show you the dispersion on 5 to 10 shots for each iron you consider buying. Your left and right misses may vary a little from swing to swing. However, the ideal iron will offer sufficient length and the tightest dispersion from the shortest hit to longest one. Below are six new irons for you to consider.
