How about a little game improvement for your irons this year? Golf Digest calls these Super Game Improvement but I think they are great for anyone that needs a little more height, forgiveness and distance!
Game Improvement Design
The design of every one of these irons is to maximize MOI (moment of inertia) for forgiveness and move the COG (center of gravity) back and low to increase trajectory.
One of our go-to irons, the combination of the face-cup technology to increase ball speed and the tungsten weighting makes these irons long AND forgiving!
Now you can get a set of hybrid-like irons for your entire set. Cleveland has a great reputation for hybrids and this iron HB version is no exception!
The addition of the Baffler-style rail to the sole of this hybrid iron is the best thing going for straight shots. While helping slide through heavy turf as well, the rails will help straighten shots even off thin lies. And the hot steel insert creates the distance you need!
This might be the most surprising iron in this category. Don’t let the stronger lofts scare you! The design still gives a higher trajectory and a ton of forgiveness!
Getting the Right Shaft
These irons are designed to be used with higher launching shafts. Here are our suggestions:
True Temper Elevate 95 and 105 95 and 105 grams Steel
Shimada S-Lite 100 grams Steel
KBS $ Taper Lite 90 to 110 grams Steel

There are a LOT more shafts available in a higher launching profile. The key is getting the proper length, weight and flex to give you the longest, straightest shots!
