I’m thinking about getting a driving iron to use off the tee when I don’t want to let rip with the driver on holes it’s key to find the fairway and I don’t want the high floating ball I get off my hybrid .So what are others using and how forgiving are they I’m not sure what to go for so any advice would be great cheers

I’ve hit the mizzy MP-h5 2iron plenty of times and even during my bad spells still found it very easy to hit. If you look around you can find the mp fli hi or H4 for around £40-50. The launch will be based on your normal ball flight with irons and I’m sure that the shaft may have some influence.

I’m in the market for a driving iron, had a hit with a TMB, and didn’t find it that forgiving, also had a hit with a Srixon SU85, and found that easier to hit - going back when I’ve got more time to try some others.

What spec is your crossover and do you find it forgiving ?
It's the G series, 4 iron, stiff.
I hit a fairly low ball anyway so it goes like a 2 iron and runs for miles.

I find it very forgiving - slightly heavy contacts still seem to go a very long way, much better than say a traditional 2 iron.

I think there may be a later version available but haven't tried it so can't comment if it's any different

I have the cobra utility with adjustable loft, it’s forgiving enough but out of the toe it’s awful. I was fitted for this by Joe Folker from cobra with an Aldila rogue shaft.

My only reservation is at the time of the fitting I didn’t have the opportunity to test any from other manufacturers.

I have had a play with the ping crossover since and found it launched higher but was definitely more forgiving.
