    Looking for a super-forgiving 4 iron

    With my current hybrid struggles I'd quite like to experiment with adding a 4 iron to the bag instead. Does anyone have one they're willing to sell? I'm after something as forgiving as possible, and around 20°.

    Ideally Callaway Steelhead XR as that's my current set, or something like Callaway XR OS maybe. Failing that though, I'll consider anything at the 'game improver' end of things. Anyone with a spare 4 iron gathering dust?

    I suppose here in lies the problem with strong lofted irons. He's looking for a 4 (needs 20 deg) iron so in these would have to buy a 3 iron in the srixon for instance. So his 4 iron would be stronger that my MP4 3 iron in terms of loft.

    so you have to be careful what you look at, I would suggest looking for one to match your set, on fleabay or golf bidder

    I don't really want a 'forged' one anyway. Looking for maximum game improver level here. I have been having a look at ebay, the problem is extremely few people are selling one single iron - it's all sets.

    I suppose I could buy a 4-PW set of irons and then sell it as a 5-PW set. That seems like a lot of effort though. On the upside if I'm smart I could basically get a 4 iron for near enough free or maybe even for profit, lol.

    I haven't got one to sell, but I'd recommend any 4 iron made by Ping if you want something super easy to hit.
