Best of 2021

Is it time that you made things easier for yourself out on the golf course? If so, you might want to consider looking at some irons which are going to give you more help, rather than just picking something based on how nice it looks in the bag and which PGA Tour star is using them (as tempting as that may seem).

This is our list of the best game-improvement irons we have tested in 2021, considering easy launch, distance, (plenty of) forgiveness and value for money.

Cobra Radspeed Irons

Cobra Radspeed Irons

Released: 29/01/21

RRP As Reviewed: £749

Quick Hit: Typical innovative and eye-catching design from Cobra with new, forgiving irons that really pack a punch in the distance department.

The Tech: The irons feature a 3D printed nylon medallion in the back cavity to save weight and lower CG for easier launch. Radial Weighting technology increases the distance between the heel and toe weighting to provide faster ball speeds with high forgiveness.

Golfalot Says: As soon as you start hitting these irons, you can feel the power that they possess.

Titleist T300 Irons

Titleist T300 Irons

Released: 26/08/21

RRP As Reviewed: £896

Quick Hit: Easy launch and friendly head shape means that you can use Titleist irons and still offer serious game improvement attributes.

The Tech: The T300 includes 40% more tungsten inside the head than the original version, allowing Titleist to easily place the CG for optimal launch and spin. Max Impact technology uses a polymer core to provide higher ball speeds and variable face thickness provides more forgiveness across the face.

Golfalot Says: These are clearly aimed at higher-handicap golfers but still contain all of the love and effort, as well as the technology, that you'd expect from a premium Titleist iron.

TaylorMade SIM2 Max Irons

TaylorMade SIM2 Max Irons

Released: 19/02/21

RRP As Reviewed: £899

Quick Hit: Marginal gains provide improved looks, feel and distance compared to last year's model.

The Tech: A new Cap Back multi-material design promotes better forgiveness, distance and feel. Inverted Cone Technology in the face design optimises forgiveness and helps to minimise the right miss.

Golfalot Says: These are the ultimate distance and forgiveness irons, and so if you are somebody who is looking for this combination then you're in the right place.

Callaway Apex DCB Irons

Callaway Apex DCB Irons

Released: 11/02/21

RRP As Reviewed: £1099

Quick Hit: These versatile forged irons aren't cheap but can last you a golfing lifetime with great combination of distance, feel and forgiveness.

The Tech: The A.I. designed Flash Face Cup has been added to a forged Apex iron for the first time ever, for high ball speeds and increased spin robustness across the face. 5x more tungsten than in the previous Apex irons adds more launch and forgiveness on off-centre hits, with up to 50 grams added to the mid and long irons in the DCB model (compared to the standard Apex)

Golfalot Says: It is an iron that will last you for years and will be with you on the journey as you reduce your handicap thanks to its feel, and will also never make you feel inferior against your mates in distance or looks.

TaylorMade P790 Irons

TaylorMade P790 Irons

Released: 03/09/21

RRP As Reviewed: £1149

Quick Hit: One of the most played irons in golf just keeps on getting improving.

The Tech: SpeedFoam Air is 69% lighter than the previous generation, waving weight to be distributed elsewhere to aid forgiveness whilst supporting the face impact. A thin-walled design combines with 1.5mm forged steel L-Face for flexibility, fast ball speeds and distance.

Golfalot Says: This is the closest that I have seen to a precision players iron with a big game-improvement element, and they have certainly improved in all areas from 2017 to 2019 through to 2021.

Ping G425 Irons

Ping G425 Irons

Released: 11/01/21

RRP As Reviewed: £799

Quick Hit: Ping's smallest 'G' iron to date will suit a wide range of golfers, and give you easy launch and forgiveness.

The Tech: A tungsten toe screw and hosel weight expands perimeter weighting to provide extra forgiveness in a more streamlined head shape. A variable thickness Hyper 17-4 face takes inspiration from Ping's metal woods to provide fastest ball speeds ever in the G Series.

Golfalot Says: Ping have always made great cavity back irons which cater for the mass market, and this iron will sell very well once again as it's just that.
