Price: £80 per iron
Key Technology: Seven grams of weight have been removed from the tuning port in the back of the head of the PING G15 irons and repositioned to help provide high launch and optimal spin. The face is thinner than previous models and weight is added to the toe of the head for more stability and forgiveness.
Key Technology: Midsize heads are designed to provide a classic look with forgiveness and playability. A one-piece 'Soft Response Insert' across the cavity gives a solid sound and improved feel for most types of strike. Weight is moved to the heel and toe for added stability and control.
Cobra S2 Max
Key Technology: The multi-material design allows weight to be positioned in key areas to offer optimum forgiveness. A cavity back design with a stainless steel face create 9 points across the clubface to form a larger sweet zone. Achieving more distance and improved accuracy across the clubface.
Yonex NanoSpeed 3i
Key Technology: The 4- and 5-irons have a wide sole combined with a thin face reinforced with graphite for improved distance. Irons 6 to PW have a deep composite cavity back and a stainless steel face. The set wedges have a half cavity for better accuracy.

Key Technology: The Callaway X-22 irons have repositioned weighting for improved forgiveness. The sole and top line, have been made thinner without reducing the size of the hitting area. While a Tru-Bore polycarbonate tip plug at the end of the shaft dampens vibration for extra feel.
Price: £105 per iron
Key Technology: The hollow construction allows weight
to be manipulated to aid forgiveness and create a higher launch angle. The ‘hot metal' face will also improve distance and forgiveness.
Forgiveness & feel
Price: £85 per iron
Key Technology: The larger long irons offer high levels of forgiveness and stability, the mid irons are slightly smaller, blending into the compact short irons that offer a more controlled trajectory. A tungsten toe insert has been added for greater forgiveness to this mid-size design

The AP2s are forged from carbon Steel, with tungsten nickel sole and a moulded cavity plate, with a new thinner face which, improves sound and feel while offering better perimeter weighting, achieving enhanced forgiveness.
Price: £85 per iron
Key Technology: In terms of performance and looks these fit between the current MP-52 and MX-200 models. The undercut cavity design is more compact, offering more workability than any other iron in the MX line. Designed for solid ball strikers who are accustomed to the forgiveness of a cavity.
Wilson FG Tour
Key Technology: These Tour irons have been forged from soft carbon steel to offer a more responsive feel. The wider sole and cavity back lowers the CG to help improve ball striking. The classic design is based on the famous F17 iron model created by Bob Mandrella.

Price: £105 per iron
Key Technology: These irons feature a tungsten weight in the toe to create a higher MOI through impact and reduce twist on any mis-hits. The CG in these small, compact heads is closer to the face creating a slightly lower launch angle and more penetrating flight.
Price: £95 per club
Key Technology: A titanium insert forged directly into the outer muscle increases thickness achieving a more solid feel whilst improving stability for off-centre strikes. The thin topline and sole hold the CG close to the face helping create a piercing flight, which will aid your shot-shaping.
Key Technology: Features a softer topline, rounder profile and narrow sole compared to last year’s ZM blades. A progressive hosel length helps produce a higher launch in long irons and improves flight control in the short clubs.
Cleveland CG7 Tour
Key Technology: A one piece injection molded lightweight insert covers the entire perimeter of the cavity and the base of the head, providing vibration dampening across the entire face for superior feel, even on off center hits. The heel to toe weight distribution achieves greater forgiveness.
Nike VR blades
Key Technology: With Tiger’s input into the design of Nike’s VR blade. Forged from carbon steel incorporating a milled face, these are a move away form Nike’s original blade. The centre of gravity has been positioned to Woods’ specs to provide added control and to aid shot shaping.
