Golf Club Irons – Guide To Iron Designs

Golf club irons come in many different types, sizes, designs and prices. This means that there is a lot that needs to be considered when selecting the right irons in golf shop for you. One thing you need to look at carefully is the design of the iron. Continue reading for a helping hand when it comes to this aspect.

There are two different designs of golf irons to consider – cavity back irons and blade irons. Let’s take a look at the former first. A cavity back iron is one that has a cavity or recess at the back of the head. This ensures that more weight is concentrated on the perimeter. This is beneficial because it enhances the forgiveness of the club, which is otherwise referred to as the Moment of Inertia (MOI). This means that this type of club is best for those who have a mid to high handicap, as you will reap the rewards of a bigger sweet spot. In most cases, a thin clubface is paired with a bigger clubhead, which results in off-centre shots flying straighter and longer than they would with a blade iron. Next we have blade irons, which have a compact hitting area, a thin top line and a thin face. These irons have been designed for the more experienced and better players. There is a smaller sweet spot in the centre of the head, which occurs because of the even weight distribution throughout the entire head. With this type of iron, you will be able to shape a shot more than you would with a cavity back iron.
