Most Beautiful Irons 2018
Titleist 718 MB Irons
The 718 MB is classic muscle back designed for today’s game and is the modern choice for those players desiring maximum shot control with a traditional forged look and feel. Strategically designed CG locations deliver superior shot-making and responsive feedback.
TaylorMade P730 Irons
A milled channel across the head moves mass away from the centre to increase forgiveness on high or low strikes while heel and toe MOI has been kept the same to maintain maximum workability. The design team’s primary objective with the P730 iron was to retain the features that were iconic to the Tour Preferred MB ’14 – notably sole camber, offset flow, sole radius and hosel length – while at the same time improving its performance in two subtle ways; shaping and mass properties.
Cobra King Pro Irons
Designed with feedback from PGA Tour star Rickie Fowler, the King Pro Irons come in a combo set with the 3-6 irons in cavity back and the 7-PW as muscle backs. The cavity back and strategic tungsten weighting in the longer irons delivers great forgiveness while the muscle back design of the shorter irons allows for great workability and precision. A 10-25 carbon steel head is forged five times to give a soft yet solid feel. The finish is super stylish in either diamonised black or chrome.

PING i500 Irons
The i500 is similar to G700 in that it has the look of a muscleback from behind but is in fact hollow. It has a forged face made from the same C300 maraging steel as the G400 woods and G400 Crossover, which is extremely strong but also very flexible. As a result, it flexes at impact by two thirds of its own thickness
Srixon Z 965 Irons
Part of the Z65 series of irons, the Z 965 is used by Japanese pro Hideki Matsuyama and provide performance to go along with their beautiful aesthetics. The clubhead material has undergone a new heat- treatment process to enhance both feel and distance. The grooves have also been made five per cent larger and the faces have been double laser- milled to improve the contact and spin consistency, particularly from wet or bad lies.
Titleist T-MB Irons
These stunning irons feature a hollow-back construction with a thin, unsupported L-Face insert that allows the face to flex more at impact, increasing launch and speed for more distance. The most high-density tungsten in the Titleist 718 lineup – with an average of 93.9 grams precisely placed in the heel and toe – highlighted by the brown sections on the sole, optimises launch and spin to produce higher shots that go far and land soft. This high-MOI design increases off-centre ball speed and accuracy for forgiveness while delivering stability and tour-validated feel.
TaylorMade P790 Black
Built with the revolutionary ‘Speed Foam’ technology inside a hollow cavity to offer more distance and a superb feel and sound, the Black p790 irons are truly stunning. The irons feature ultra-thin 1.75mm faces with TaylorMade’s new Inverted Cone Technology, said to increase flexibility from heel to toe and low on the clubface for consistently fast ball speeds.
Mizuno MP-18 Irons
An evolved Grain Flow Forged HD (High Density) forging process compresses the grains of the metal more tightly together to deliver an even softer feel, while progressively sharper heads from 7-PW help improve workability.
Callaway Apex MB Irons
The Apex MB came about via feedback from tour players, who wanted a classic, traditional shape with a thinner topline. The irons are forged from 1025 carbon steel for the super-soft feel you expect from a muscleback model. Callaway has also optimised the centre-of-gravity locations inside the heads to improve performance. To reduce the effect of fliers from the rough, new high-performance 20V grooves have been incorporated into the design.
Wilson Staff FG Tour 100 Irons
Inspired by the iconic 1971 Wilson Staff Button Back irons, these blades are forged with a more modern shape and feature up-to-date technologies. With classic details and ferule, these are wonderful looking clubs launched to celebrate Wilson’s 100-year anniversary. The milled face delivers wonderful feel and the forged 8620 carbon steel and nickel chrome plating give a superb finish. The attention to detail is fantastic.
