I'm curious to know what irons most people are playing and with what shaft. I'm currently using Mizuno MP-30's with a stock S300. I'll frequency them tonight. In the past I played TourStage and KZG with Tour Concept X100's frequencied at 6.1 and Rifle's at 5.2. I once played the Callaway Titanium Hawkeye pieces of junk with graphite!!! They frequencied everywhere from 3.2 to 5.8 from the factory - seriously! It was great when I wanted to hit a 180 yard 9 iron, problem was I never knew when that shot would show up and it usually happened when I wanted to smooth a 145 yard 9 iron!

I use Ben Hogan Apex II irons with the original Apex stiff shafts still in them. I think they are 23 years old this year. Nothing feels better when you catch it solid. Nothing feels worse when you miss.

Wishon 550's, pw-8 in muscleback and 7-3I in cavity back.  Wishon Series 5 shafts in regular flex.  Last year after shooting the worst round of my life in a tournament I went to my neighbor, the certified clubmaker, and begged for help.  He made 3 demo 5-irons and did not mark nor tell me what length or flex they were.  After two weeks of trial, I returned and said "this one plays the best."  It was an R-flex, I had always played stiff, and it was standard length, I always played 1" long shafts.  Best $500 I ever spent on equipment.  These irons are sweet and consistent.  He made them up using MOI matching and the 3-iron plays like the 7-iron.  I have never hit irons longer nor hit as many quality 3 & 4 irons.  Love 'em.

Cleveland TA5s with steel regular flex shafts.  Hoping to change to something with less offset this year, maybe mizuno or kzg.

 Brand new for X-mas, Hogan FTX edge with apex#4 (stiff) shafts. I just got back from the range for the 1st time with them, and WOW, i absolutely love them!! I have never been a great long-iron hitter, but every single 3iron i hit was perfect. Of course, those range mats have a little forgiveness, but i've never had a better range session than today.

I use Callaway X-14 pro series with rifle 5.5 shafts.  Went to these after 8 years with the older regular style X-12's and its soo much better without all that offset.

Macgregor VIP 1025 CM w/Rifle flighted stiff shafts...I love them!  Mixed set, 3-6 are cavity and 7-P are muscle.  Buttery soft and absolutely beautiful!  They are my first set of forged irons and I can really feel my  golf shots now.  I am not a big fan of the way the new v-foils look but I hear good things about them.
