    i was thinking about picking up a set of the r7 draw irons, i was wondering if anyone has tried them and what they think.

    i currently hit an older set of Adams Tight lies irons, and hit them pretty decent but with a very slight fade. i know what i really need is to hire soemone to help me fix my swing but this seems like it might be a quick fix and cheaper since i planned on buying new irons anyway

    any input will be appreciated, thanks a lot

    Put new grips on your old irons, and rotate them a couple degrees to the right. Less expensive way of getting rid of the fade. HMB

    Those draw irons can turn a draw into a snap hook pretty quick.
    Stay with your Adams' and correct your swing.

    im going to end up buying new irons anyway. The ones i have now have seen better days. Rather its a brand new set or say maybe an 08 model year slightly used set who knows. The fade i have isnt anything severe so the draw irons probably would turn my slight fade into a severe hook after a short time.

    i normally shoot 40-45 on 9 holes. nothing amazing but nothing horrible either. any suggestions on what irons i might want to check out?

    James,

    Before you buy anything new, go to two of the national golf chain stores and get their Pro or one of their authorized fitting specialists to fit you on the Ping Fitting System. You don't need to buy Ping but you do need to know beyond any shadow of a doubt 1.) what shaft flex is exactly right for you and 2.) what lie angle is exactly right for you. The Ping Fitting System is the best on the market for helping you determine those very important specifications. After meeting with two different Pros and hearing their pitch, ask the one you like the most to analyze your swing in his fitting area and find out if your swing, i.e. your clubface angle at impact, is more likely to produce a hook or a slice. Ask him if the lie angle of your current irons has played a role in your slice or if your swing plain and clubface angle at impact are more likely the culprit. Tell him you want to correct your slice but you don't want to have to take a second mortgage out on the house to do it. Give him a chance to help you. If he is a PGA professional, chances are good that he is an ethical man and he won't take advantage of you. The point is this: you should be able to come out of this experience with a new set of clubs, a new friend, and a much better understanding of your golf swing. That will lead to lower scores.

    Best of luck, Kit Thomas...and remember, You meet the nicest people in the fairway.

    Kit said it well. I just did the fitting thing lie angle and all that good stuff. I did have an idea of what I needed from haveing done it once before but the new Ping system is great. I ended up with Callaway Diablo Irons stiff Graffit shafts 2 deg toe up. Gained 15-20 yards a club worth the time and Money. Jeff
