The Best Golf Irons For High Handicappers

The Best Golf Irons For High Handicappers

Building a custom golf set with new irons isn’t just for professionals or those with a low handicap.


If you play regularly enough, it makes all the sense in the world to build your own set, so you can customize your clubs around how you play and what you look for from your clubs.


But if you’re not the most experienced player (yet) you might be wondering what the best golf irons for high handicappers are.


But we’re here to help. In this blog, we’ll take a look at the best golf irons for high handicappers, so you can equip yourself with the best clubs for your personal skill level.

Callaway Paradym Irons

Callaway Paradym Irons

Some of the most forgiving golf irons in Callaway’s lineup, Callaway Paradym Irons give a great feel and produce highlight-reel results using the latest in golf technology.

Callaway has used artificial intelligence technology to create their ‘Forged 455’ heads, which are made from stainless steel and are some of the strongest Callaway has ever created.

They’re tailor-made to offer a higher launch, greater golf ball speeds and better spin control.

Callaway’s ‘Speed Frame’ construction is also on display in the hollow heads of these irons, which are crafted to offer better face flexion. This results in a thinner face which cuts through the air during the downswing for impeccable impact and power.

The clubs also encourage golf balls to stay on track, even if they’re caught at the toe or the heel, thanks to dual tungsten weighting.

Cleveland Launcher XL Irons

Game improvement irons created for the recreational golfer, the Cleveland Launcher XL irons make every game feel like a fun time with your friends.

With an excellent strike feel, you’ll never want to put these particularly forgiving golf irons away when you’re on the course.

These irons help you generate power at the right moments in your swing, thanks to Cleveland’s new ‘XL’ design and Mainframe weighting technology.

The 4 to 7 irons offer added distance thanks to their specially-placed grooves, while the 8 iron and above feature grooves that are pushed closer together, for added control and accuracy around the green.

If you're looking for super game improvement irons, grab the Cleveland Launcher XL Irons.

Cobra Air-X Golf Irons

If you prefer irons that are lightweight and look like they came from a professional’s bag, the Cobra Air-X Golf Irons are for you.

A professional-looking set of irons at a middle price point, these irons are easy to carry yet still offer plenty of power and swing speed when playing from any surface.

These clubs offer marginal flex during the downswing, so it feels like you’re really whipping golf balls down the fairway towards the green at impressive distances, thanks to Cobra’s FST Ultralite shaft.

If you’re used to playing with heavier irons, don’t worry, the new feel won’t take long to get used to. You may even wonder why you didn’t make the switch to a lighter set of irons years earlier.

And with a slightly offset hosel, the Cobra Air-X irons will give you the forgiveness you'd expect from a game improvement iron in a slick-looking package.

Wilson Staff Launch Pad Irons

Wilson Staff Launch Pad Irons

Hollow forged irons aren’t to everyone’s taste, but these Wilson Staff Launch Pad irons will help high handicappers get off on the right foot with clean and smooth iron shots.

Players can expect a higher-ball launch when the ball is struck, thanks to the ‘Launch Pad’ sole, helping players get their golf balls into the air, and avoiding low-flying iron shots which plague so many new players.

The club’s hollow head offers a lighter, less intimidating feel for new golfers, while also offering excellent power generation from the clubhead to the ball.

Its lightweight construction means golfers don’t need to feel weighed down and are free to inject plenty of power for maximum clubhead and ball speed, generating even more distance in their shots.

And the irons’ mid-sized grip offers great comfort, helping everyone from beginners to experienced pros get a better feel for the club.

Even the most intimidating irons are a joy to hit with the Wilson Staff Launch Pad irons, so you don’t need to fear reaching for those long irons, as so many do.

TaylorMade Stealth Irons

TaylorMade Stealth Irons

A member of the popular Stealth line-up, TaylorMade Stealth Irons are recognised for the brilliant level of accuracy they can deliver on the golf course.

Offering greater forgiveness and distance than previous TaylorMade entries, the ‘Cap Back’ design and toe wrap build encourages golf balls to stay on course, even if they’ve caught the face slightly off-centre.

The greater weight in the sole offers the club a surprisingly low centre of gravity, ideal for moderate swing speeds and when you need to get under the ball and give your shot some serious air time.

TaylorMade’s 450SS club face helps spread the sweet spot over a wider surface area, so you get that perfect-shot feel whenever you swing. This also aids consistency in your ball speeds and striking.

Plus, the company’s special Echo Dampening system stifles the sound of that awkward ‘thwack’ noise we experience when we don't quite catch the ball right. All shots sound like they were struck just as the golfer intended.

A great choice for a serious golfer, but an even better choice for a high handicapper looking to lower their scores.
