I believe that you mentioned in an earlier post that you have a couple of sets of IMA irons. How do like playing them?
I think that you said that you are playing blade style irons now? If so why the blades as opposed to the IMA irons?
I've played blades for a long time now. I never played the IMA irons regularly. I got them out of loyalty to the method and interest in what Scott told me about the clubhead design.
The backs of the clubheads is really ugly but seemed to offer the opportunity for variable weighting. I mentioned this to Don but nothing materialized on that. The clubheads are small (like a blade).
They feel a bit 'dead' to me but that is the case with all cavity back irons I've tried (I acquire 'sample' 5 irons so I can compare feel). The ball goes 5-10 yards further with the IMA irons than with my blades.
I like my Golfsmith forged blades best and that is what I play. Yes I know they aren't made anymore but I have a private stock that will likely out live me My second favorite club is the Titleist forged blade with the IMA clubs coming next tied with my Wilson blades (and ahead of my Mizuno blades). All the others (I have about 15 'sample' 5 irons) are way back for me.
The irons that I consider REALLY revolutionary are both made by Golfworks - The Glider-X and the AST. I think these are THE best irons for the regular golfer. They have wide soles so they are less likely to dig in on fat shots and the low CG makes a trajectory difference that I can see even on a 10 step pitch. I made a set for a friend that loves them and also a set for my wife. If you have a problem getting the ball up these will help.
