This week’s equipment guide takes a brief look at those irons at the upper end of the golf market. It follows our review of some quality clubs under the £400 mark. Fed up with hearing about the ‘credit crunch’?  Why not splash out on some new sticks! Here’s a selection of the premium irons that we have reviewed, well worth trying out:

Ping S57 irons, £90 per club


The lower launch angle makes them versatile for the better striker and despite being small, they are actually more forgiving than we expected:

Mizuno MP 52 irons, £85 per club

Another beautiful set of Mizuno irons. The small cavity will attract decent strikers who are put off by the uncompromising demands of blades:

Nike VR Split Cavity irons, £630

Over the ball they look like a blade but from the back you can see a cavity that helps forgiveness. Any decent ball striker will like the forged feel:
