Is there any website that gives a rough gauge of what irons is most suitable for your handicap aside from mizuno?

Can a P plate driver drives a maserati and a skilled driver drives a QQ? Both will still arrive.

dun think so much bro.. just go with what you like and feel.

dun let these 'numbers' affect your decision.

no doubt a game improvement club will be easier but it also depends on what you wan to achieve.

i've seen newbie swinging with muscle backs.

my 2 cents worth.

If you intent to change newer club in 1 year time, buy a super game improvement iron. Guarantee you will change next year if by then you are still into golf. Twisted Evil

If you want to keep your iron for awhile (about 3 years or longer), buy a notch above what you can handle comfortably now.

Ok thanks much. Then i guess i should be looking into the R11 Irons range? If i go by TM that is. Cuz right now im looking at Burner 2.0.. But the R11 face seems a but sharp at the toe.. Looks queer..

Any recommendations for 1 notch up from Burner 2.0? But i definitely do not want to get blades now. So anything btwn blades and Game improvement irons. Like the super game improvement irons that 2008 was talking about (any brand)

Take a look at the Maltby Playability Factor (MPF) ratings for comparisons

Oh. I thought it was the MOI that determined the forgiveness. Oh well.

I caught myself looking for the "like" button here.. LOL! FB ruins lives.

MPF is for playability. How easy/difficult it is to hit/launch the ball. Not just forgiveness.

higher MPF = a combination of lower CG vertically, CG placed more towards the toe horizontally and higher MOI. not precise formula, but just to give rough idea.
