Irons Washington DC

Irons today are nothing like they were just a few years ago. That’s a good thing because iron technology hasn’t exactly had such an easy time keeping up with the meteoric rise in driver, wood and putter designs.

The latest game-improvement offerings

Cleveland CG7
The Anti-Iron IRONS
Irons today are nothing like they were just a few years ago. That’s a good thing because iron technology hasn’t exactly had such an easy time keeping up with the meteoric rise in driver, wood and putter designs. However, the latest leaps in iron technology have been huge, with numerous models featuring more game improving technology than we’ve ever seen.

To get started, be aware that blade-style irons are basically on the way out. Even most touring professionals have ditched them. What about cavity-backs? They’re still here, although they’re so heavily modified that it’s hard to call any new cavity-back iron a cavity-back anymore.

How irons are designed to perform also has changed. Shotmaking and ball control have given way to power and forgiveness as a result of the popular “bomb and gouge” style of play, which encourages players to hit the ball as long and straight as possible.

That style of play along with some advances in iron technology have brought us a heaping of new, powerful and just plain mean irons that are designed to hit the ball higher, farther and straighter than ever. Among the pack for 2009 are these four top contenders, each of which will take a meaty bite out of your handicap, provided you find the one that fits your swing.

Cleveland CG7
Built with a 360-degree Gelback insert and sports-car good looks, the CG7 is Cleveland’s most attractive, not to mention best iron to date. Not nearly as bulky as many game- improvement irons, the CG7 still has a ton of horsepower under its shiny hood—meaning these sticks are both long and straight. A Tour version, the CG7 Tour, also is available—it’s slightly smaller and features less offset. Par-3s, beware. The CG7s are coming.
