Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - GOLFING | GEARGUIDE -­ Avail­abil­ity: 4-PW

Stock shaft: Pre­ci­sion Ri­fle (s) Mit­subishi Rayn JAVLN (g) 7i loft/length: 30° / 37”

TECH: A wide sole, un­der­cut cav­ity back and thick top edge en­sure max­i­mum playa­bil­ity when shots are hit off-cen­tre.

WE SAY: We’ve got to hand it to MD Golf, the Su­per­strongs have got some se­ri­ous shelf ap­peal. They might not boast any of the springy face or speed pocket tech like some, but they were more than ca­pa­ble of keep­ing up when it came to ball speed and carry. By post­ing a just above-av­er­age ball speed and carry dis­tance across all three testers, and con­sid­er­ing the subUS$385 price point, we’d say the STR’s are a de­cent value op­tion. The head has a de­cent sized cav­ity back, a rea­son­ably wide and for­giv­ing sole and yet the top edge doesn’t swell to obese lev­els, ei­ther. It all stacks up to a solid iron.

VER­DICT: MD are not as widely avail­able as they once were and they’re not quite as keen to of­fer cus­tom fit­ting on their 2017 line up, ei­ther. But that doesn’t take away from the STR be­ing a de­cent propo­si­tion for club golfers, es­pe­cially those shop­ping on a bud­get.
