A Very Playable Cavity Back Blade

Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Midsized, Easy to Play

Cons:Standard Grips

The Bottom Line: Good for Player trying to transition their way from an oversized to a smaller blade.


One day while playing golf, I decided it was time for a change in irons. I had played with a set of Dunlop No Problem irons from Wal-Mart for three years, and my scores had improved from the high 90's to the low 90's and high 80's. I knew the oversized, cast Dunlops were holding me back from fully devolping my game, improving, and shooting lower scores.

To replace my old irons I began demoing irons from the pro shop at my local golf course. The first product I played with was the Cleveland TA7. I really did not like the "dead" feel the TA7's produced on impact. Ball flight and distance were okay and I liked the cleveland grip, however the feel was worse than the cast Dunlop's. The next set I tried was the Callaway X-16 Pro Series. I really liked the look of the club with mimimal offset and thinner top line. The iron was definatly better for me than the TA7's. It had better feel and played a little better. However I could not afford the price so I kept play with the Dunlop's this spring.

A couple of weeks ago, there was a Callaway demo day at my local country club. I tried the new X-18 Pro Series but did not find the magic I had with the X-16 Pro Series. I also tried the new X-Tour Forged Irons and those were great. Later that day, my uncle came to visit me and gave me a set of midsize Maxfli Revolution irons. After playing a few rounds with them I found they felt and played much like the Callaway X-Tour Forged Irons.

What I like about the Maxfli Midsize Irons
Feel
With Maxfli's multilayer construction, these are definatly the best feeling irons out of all of the ones I playtested. As with most smaller irons, you could really feel when you hit the ball crisp and when you hit it off center. Feedback is one of the best things these irons give you.

Playability
With its smaller head and minimal offset, these irons have great control and you have the ability to work the ball with ease. I was able to easily hit a right to left shot which I was not able to do with my dunlop's. The sand wedge is one of the best wedges I have ever used to get out of bunkers, bad lies, or when flopping a shot over a greenside bunker. These irons where easier to hit well than any of the oversized irons I used before these.

The only con I found was the grips are not very tacky and lose playability after only a few rounds.

If you are currently a mid handicapper and are looking to step your game up, this is a great set of irons. If you are a low or scratch handicapper I recommend the Maxfli Revolution black dot irons. NOTE: Good Luck finding these Midsize (Red Dot) becasue they are rarer than the Black Dot and Maxfli no longer makes either model.
