Golf Australia Express : February 2013
FAIRWAYS & IRONS DRIVERS MIGHT be the king of the bag, but they are upheld by the power of irons and fairway woods. With the release of their drivers, the big manufactures have brought many of their technological breakthroughs to the fairway. As with everything Golf, there is a vast range of choice. Fairway woods have taken the cue from their driver brethren and are starting to show signs of adjustability—TaylorMade’s RBZ Stage 2 Tour Edition, for example, offers a variation of +/- 1.5°. On top of this, fairway woods continue to offer better shafts and more refined heads to give more consistent performance. Meanwhile, if you are looking to replace the majority of your bag, Ping’s Anser Forged Irons are the stuff of dreams and credit card nightmares with a price tag in excess of $1500. They might be wonderful to hit, but take a lot of buying. Nike’s VR_S Covert Irons are more reasonably priced and include their High Speed Cavity Back technology combined with NexCor face. With techno-garble like that, you would have to hit the ball a mile. Again, much of the market is set by fashion, so irons that match drivers make a bag look sexy. If that includes technology to improve your game, then bring it on.
