PROS: Number one is the great feel, but they also tend to have a beautiful classic look with more compact heads. They produce a lower flight and it’s easier to work and shape the ball.
CONS: The smaller heads are less forgiving on off-centre hits and the faces wear out faster. The long irons can be tougher to hit and they tend to be very expensive. VERDICT: Go for forged if you’re a fairly decent ballstriker and enjoy playing and working iron shots.
