    Beginner irons for 13 year old

    My 13 year old son (14 in August) is finally looking for his first set of proper irons. I don't want to get junior irons as he will outgrow them quickly, but am wondering what would be the best option starting out. I have considered Benross Maxspeed 2 or 10 irons as they are very forgiving or the Progen Haema irons. Both retail around £120 which is the sort of budget I am looking at initially. Any other sets I may have overlooked?

    Benross make some fantastic equipment at a fraction of the cost of the more well known brands. You won't go far wrong with their irons.
    2015 Handicap 15.8 > 11.3
    2016 Handicap 11.3 > 11.5
    2017 Start Handicap 11.5 > ?

    The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.

    Cheers, I must admit, I was veering that way! I used to play Ripspeed 2 and they were lovely feel irons. Maxspeed ultra forgiving and they will last him until he is ready to make the next step

    Sounds like a deal. How forgiving are the biocells?

    I've got the Maxspeed 2 irons (with a couple of hot speed wedges, so I'm 5-LW "speed 2") and I bloody love them. Can't recommend them highly enough.

    There's a Pro shop on ebay knocking out the old Speed2/10 ranges for next to nothing. Rip 10 5-PW for £129 or something silly recently. I bought the Rip Speed 10 driver I'm now using from him. Probably worth sending him a message and see if he'd do a deal on irons, driver and fairway/hybrid, then nip into your local pro shop and get some cut down shafts while keeping the ones in at the moment for when he grows a bit?
    Benross RIP Speed 10 Driver, Max Speed 2 fairway - 18º, Hot Speed 2 Hybrids - 22º & 25º, Max Speed 2 irons. Taylormade Raylor Ghost putter.
