The best golf irons over the last five years include the PING G425, TaylorMade P790, and Titleist T100. Each of these golf irons comes from a different category and will best fit different players, but they've been exceptional in the 2nd Swing fitting bays.

In this video, 2nd Swing master fitters Thomas Campbell and Danny Ferrell discuss their favorite golf irons over the last five years in the players iron, players-distance iron, and game-improvement iron categories. Then, Thomas and Danny do some light testing to showcase the differences in performances.

M Maranta says:

I like blades because they’re easier to clean

Kevin Meeks says:

One thing to remember, however, is that if you add or remove loft you also are adding and removing bounce at the bottom of the club. It may not matter a lot depending on your swing but on the other hand it may. More bounce typically means more forgiveness.

Weslan Mullet says:

I tend to hit balls really high. I want to get a bit more distance out of my Irons and get them to go farther and be more forgiving. Any suggestions?

Rob S says:

I know Thomas is gone, but is Danny still around? Haven't seen him in a while.

Piechy says:

criminal to not have a mizuno iron set on this list

Victor Rosario says:

Callaway Apex 21s! Amazing feeling iron and looks super clean in the bag!

Everything22 says:

Played P790 and upgraded today to the T100S. It was an upgrade

Serge Allard says:

Based on sales…seriously guys ?

krongrath suwannasri says:

How would you compare T300 to G425 irons?

Przemysław Bech says:

Based on Maltby’s MPF measurements G425 has a tone of MOI but very highly positioned center of gravity. So it would look you are wrong saying that these Pings launche higher because of low CoG… maybe it’s just higher lofts that give you light launch and not the cog here??!

Iversonwings says:

What about the Srixon ZX5 irons?

Greg Millard says:

Great review 👏

Average American says:

I recently ordered Sub 70 699 Pro 5-PW. I hit some TM P790 against 699 demo clubs and they were pretty much identical in feel and performance. I went with Sub 70 because I was able to upgrade the shaft ($ Taper 100) and the grips and still be half the price ($654 delivered) of the Taylor Made. If you know your numbers, DTC clubs can be a great deal.

Paul Gouge says:

The only no that matters is the loft but manufacturers only put that on wedges. Most 'modern game imorovement' irons go through a loft range 1 degree less than my 'traditional' Mizuno sets but do it with only 7 clubs to my 8, meaning bigger distance gaps, usually from 7-w. This makes 'blending' sets difficult as two clubs with similar lofts have different no. / same no, different loft. The objective in last 'fitting' was to change shafts and fitter wanted me to test new clubs and I did but compared the 6 iron with my 5 (same loft) and I stayed with my clubs with new shafts, swapped Project X 5.5 for Nippon Modus3 120 S. Cheaper and better, my handicap now coming back closer to where it was prior to injuries.

Randall Pennington says:

Please do a forged vs cast durability video.

Obsidian says:

I play t100 and I love them, the more used they get the better they are, I have tweaked them with lead tape but not much

Cody the Rottweiler says:

You guys need a coach to help you with your insecure hand movements – it's making me uncomfortable watching you guys squirm around like that.

wnfakind says:

Mizuno Pro 225’s baby, and game improvement Mizuno JPX 921 HMP.

Stephen Urso says:

I still can't find a better set of irons than my wilson staff FG51 tour blades.they are over 30ys old and nothing today compares to them in my opinion!

Kidze says:

hi, I'm interested in blending the new Mizuno Pro 225, 223 and 221 into one set. Maybe split 234/567/89P or 23/456/789P. Is that possible? How would you guys adjust the lofts to blend them so I can fill up the gap.

William Lee says:

Man I wish there was a location closer to me. I would spend all my free time in store!

stuart rawlings says:

really intersting video

Kevin Wood says:

I carry a set of PXG 0211 dc2s and they feel pretty solid.

Amit Sinha says:

Great review boys. I have been playing AP2 712 for a while and just love them. Recently I tried JPX 921 forged and all my shots started to fade, whereas I am used to getting a nice draw with my AP2s with exactly the same swing. I am back to my AP2s now. Do you think T100 may be worth a try???

Ron Andy says:

Mizuno Mizuno Mizuno

Minh Bui says:

Would been cool to see you guys compare these clubs with the same loft

Joe Lane says:

I would love to see you do a comparison of Mizuno 225 vs 790 in terms of distance, ball speed, distance consistency, spin, height, decent angle and forgiveness.
Also, do you think the Mizuno 225 compares more with the P790 or P770 ?
P.S. add Ping i525 to this test too please!! 225 vs 790 vs i525
