Post Some new technologies used in irons
With the development of the science and technology, the golf clubs are also improved. Golf player's will benifit a lot from the new improvement.

The most important stuff in Titleist is the latest multimaterial Titleist AP2 712 Irons, which are designed to look small and play big. The reengineered clubheads have a higher moment of inertia (MOI), or resistance to twisting, than their predecessors. There is also another set Calloway X-24 Hot Irons that produce more forgiveness, more consistent ball speeds across the face for improved distance control and tighter dispersion on off-center hits. Both models also have “low inertia” around the shaft axis as determined by blade length and center-of-gravity position. This simply means that it’s easier to square up the clubface at impact when the new technology is inserted.

The other set Ping Ansar Forged Irons are made of forged 1025 carbon steel and offer a high degree of “workability,” a quality that better players covet. These third-generation sticks also feature more weight concentrated in the heel and toe than the Ping G15 Irons, which equates to a 7 percent higher MOI. In fact, these game-enhancing irons are nearly as forgiving as the original game-improvement clubs. The secret: using a thin stainless steel “cradle” along the back of the club in combination with tungsten slugs in the heel and toe that total 50 grams.

The larger TaylorMade Tour Preferred CB Irons, made of cast stainless steel, provides more forgiveness but less maneuverability than the irons on ... K_135.html. In this case, discretionary mass is shifted from the topline, center back and stainless steel sole plate to a heavy tungsten toe weight. The result? Long irons have a 4 to 7 percent higher MOI than the other irons, while short irons have the same inertia as before.
