Why we like it

The company famous for forgiveness keeps pushing the limits of how to make a golfer’s worst misses more playable, even in an iron designed for better players. The i230’s elastomer insert saves 21 grams that is repositioned low and towards the perimeter to make it easier to get the ball in the air and foster forgiveness. The elastomer also helps support the face, providing a pleasing feel, even on shots hit slightly off-centre. For those particularly severe mis-hits, tungsten toe and tip weights help mitigate loss of ball speed.

  • A revised cavity badge dampens unwanted vibrations.
  • Compact long irons produce a reliable clubface delivery.
  • Machined grooves deliver consistent launch and spin.
  • 7-iron: 33 degrees; PW: 45 degrees

Reviewer profile

“This club produces a hard, muted sound. The technology is well hidden at address yet helps me launch the ball with consistency.”
