Although I am too lazy to use iron covers locally (only when in transit overseas), there is probably no better way to minimize dinks and dents to preserve the value of your clubs. This is especially important if you are the kind of golfer that likes to switch sets. Better appearance = higher resale value.
Anyone who has seen my set can compare them with mloy's to see the effect of iron covers and meticulous care over time. We both got our clubs at about the same time, and the raw material is identical.
Mloy's still look like they can command a decent price while mine are probably worthless to anyone except myself.
Covering your irons is definitely a good habit to develop if you can be inclined.

Covering your iron is definitely a good habit to develop. You wouldn't want your iron to suffer from rust or other shock transmitted dings.

I just wanna caution that you oughta wipe your irons dry before putting the iron covers back on. I have seen rust developing on some irons cos the owners immediately put the covers back on after dipping the iron in the iron washer thingy after every shot
Best to take out all covers when back home to air the irons. Just my 2 cents.

good to cover especially if your irons are forged.

There is only one risk....small one which I had personally experience.
I accidentally cover my 6 iron with #9 cover
so this is what happen.......on par 5...left with 90-100m......pick up the '9' iron...and walk to the ball.....setup...felt weird...why club so long.
There stare at setup again...wah !!! why so lack of LOFT. The check, NB.....6 iron la !!!
too lazy to go back and change......did a small punch shot....and then.....
so just becareful to ensure right cover

I used to use iron covers, until I read that iron covers may promote rust if club is not properly cleaned and dried prior to being covered. And I feel that sometimes, there's simply no time on course to fully complete that procedure.
Since then, I've gotten used to the idea that my clubs are gonna get banged up and it doesnt bother me anymore. In fact, now less heart pain when use also.
