Yonex VMX irons 4-SW £369 (s) £549 (g)
 
Nicely shaped heads that look smart at address and give no indication of the deep cavity. The longer irons are confidence-inspiring and are able to fly some impressive distances.

TaylorMade Burner Plus irons 4-SW £449 (s) £549 (g)
 
Long shots from the middle fly incredible distances and mishits rarely stray too far from the target. The option to include a hybrid in the set is an added bonus.

A real progression from last year – these are extremely impressive for both looks and distance. They are made from excellent components and are available at a very competitive price.
