Best for me would mean most forgiving without sacrifice too much feel since I'm not a great ball striker : ) right now I'm using af 702 and it's the furthest and most forgiving iron I've ever hit. Is the egg forged and on off more forgiving? If so, I would really like to try : )

Find set of 2012 Yamaha Tour forged. So easy to hit and profile second to none. Shaft is very important though.


They look sweet... of all the clubs I've held in my hands, these fit my eye the best at address. I worry that they may be too much on a day to day basis for my mid-capper game though. Irons have always been the weakest part of my game.

Ok I added TourStage GR to the poll. Yes fantastic irons all around.

My #1 was the ONOFF Forged because it's dumb easy to hit and uber soft. The VG3's ranked a super super did I say super close #2 it's like a compromise between the 302 & ONOFF. Stevo the new VG3's are identical to the version you have but more forgiving you may like those!

What I think we will find in this poll is there are those who lean toward a more player CB ala 302's Yammy's, TS 905, etc.. and those who lean toward more forgiveness ONOFF, VG3, GR, EGG Forged etc..

The 302 and yam tour models were and still are awesome. I am currently very into romaro clubs so it's a very tough choice. I'm going to wait a bit longer for an official vote. If I vote now, the Yamaha tour model will get my vote.

Although I have only hit the Onoff forfed and the 2011 Yamaha v forged tour out of the bunch, my vote goes to the onoffs. Stupid easy to hit.and still acceptable looking clubs. Oh and by the way, did I already mentioned soft...?

Dumbest as in easiest to hit? If so ONOFF Forged no doubt and it has minimal offset which I love! It's all about finding the balance of look, forgiveness, and feel imo. I would leave 702 out, too much offset.

Yamaha V Forged Tour 2011 have my vote. Amazing irons. I've never owned any JDM stuff before but I now have a set of these in 3i - PW with 52* and 58* wedges, all shafted with Quadra 4AX SOF 100i in stiff. Amazing irons. They have a small head which makes me concentrate more, but they feel fantastic.....did I tell you how amazing they are?? :)

Hi there Mr Tourspecgolfer! Shall I call you Chris? It's good to be aboard the good ship JDM. I've never owned the usual sets of irons - Taylormade/Callaway/Nike/Titleist etc, As soon as I discovered Tourspec it was like opening Pandoras box :)
