NOW PLAYING: IRONS

Tour Edge’s new and affordable Bazooka HT Max irons ($259 and up) were engineered to improve higher handicappers’ games. How? Each HT iron has a different blade length, face height, top-line size, offset, bounce and MOI that help to optimize its distance, trajectory, spin and forgiveness. Look for a progressive undercut cavity that lowers the CG in the long irons for higher-flying shots, and raises it in the scoring irons for more spin and greater feel and control. touredge.com

MacGregor’s new and highly forgiving M85i irons ($799) mark the company’s reentry into the golf market. The irons feature a deep undercut back cavity and a low, deep CG combined with stronger lofts to create a hot, high trajec-tory. What’s best is the multimaterial medallion inside each cavity that dampens vibrations and makes them feel great. Available exclusively at Golfsmith locations and golfsmith.com

Hippo’s new hybrid iron set, the XXL ($399), was designed for players who want the most forgiving and accurate iron possible—and who like the iron-wood look. Available with Hippo's proprietary graphite shaft or True Temper steel shafts. Super easy to get airborne. hippo-golf.com

A thin top line, constant offset through the set and a beveled trailing edge on the Adams Idea Pro Black CB1 irons create the look and feel low handicappers crave. The premium set (it rings up for $899-$1,099) features eight Tour-styled forged-carbon-steel heads with a nickel-chrome-plated and black PVD finish. Expect a penetrating ballflight and an exceptionally soft feel. Nice! adamsgolf.com

Feel Golf’s new Lee Miller Signature wedges ($119) merge the company’s existing muscle back with a cavity-back design. The company also changed the metal composition, varied the club’s head weight, redistributed mass, lowered the center of gravity and introduced CNC “Micro Milled” face lines. What does this mean for you? Feel claims these changes help combat the recent groove changes by bringing back the majority of “ball-to-face friction.” Available in 10 lofts: 46°-73°. feelwedges.com
