Golf Club Reviews 2014: The Top 10

Golf clubs have come a long way. There are now massive improvements in them that can really help all golfers – beginners and experts alike. It’s not really a good idea to just go out and buy the most expensive set that you can find and assume that it’s the best one for you. There are things that you have to consider including your expectations out of the golf clubs.

Check out this list of the top 10 golf clubs this year. Start your quest to becoming a better golfer by checking out these 10 options.

  1. Mizuno MP-H4

This is a good set if you’re looking to improve your game. The feel is amazing and you’ll feel exactly which part of the club’s face the ball came in contact with. This will give you feedback that you need to make the necessary adjustments.

Golfers love the consistency that it brings to the course. The trajectory is pretty consistent so it’s just a matter of perfecting your swing so that you’ll know what to expect on your every swing.

It’s also useful that this set comes with three iron types – hybrid-like for the long irons, hollow-type for the middle ones and the short ones (hollow as well) comes with a middle cavity.

  1. Ping G25

The head of the clubs is made of 17-4 stainless steel that comes with progressive widths for the sole. This means that the CG location is optimized which will lead to an improved gapping of distance between the irons. These clubs are also lightweight thanks to how they’re engineered.

These clubs make hybrids unnecessary. You’ll find the long irons very easy to hit. The features may not stand out when you look at the club itself, but you’ll feel them at work once you start using them.

  1. Titleist AP1 714

If you’ve used the 712, then you’ll find that this is just as good, in fact maybe even better. The long irons have a larger deep undercut dual cavity than the 712. It also has amazing balance thanks to the tungsten weight added to the toe area. This is in perfect balance of the hosel weight.

You’ll also find that the lofts of the short irons are a degree stronger. There’s no tungsten weight for the short irons for a flight that penetrates better.

  1. Cobra Bio Cell

The aptly named Bio Cell has four cells in the cavity in the back of the club. It’s a very forgiving club because it will lessen the negative results of mis-hitting. This is because the long irons have added tungsten to the toe pockets and the heel. On the other hand, tungsten is added to the center pockets of the short irons for improved control. If you’re a pretty average golfer, meaning that you mis-hit every now and then, this is a good set.

  1. Cobra Baffler XL

If you’re one of those golfers who prefer XL clubs, the Cobra Baffler XL is a good choice. You’ll get more ball speed with this set thanks to the deep undercut activity. This feature provides the clubs with a massive unsupported face. Turf interaction is improved because of the XL rails along the sole. Hitting the ball with these irons is very satisfying as the hits are full and solid.

This is a popular choice for hybrid lovers. This set comes with hybrids for the 4, 5 and 6 irons.

  1. Ping Karsten

You’re getting an increased moment of inertia because the hybrids come with additional weights on the toe and a big heel. This means that you’ll still get good hits even if you didn’t exactly hit the ball with the club’s center. The hybrids are designed in such a way that the flight of the ball is increased which you’ll find useful when making an approach to the green.

The irons have a wide sole. This will help you launch the ball high in the air without digging.

  1. Cleveland 588 Altitude

This set will give you amazing ball speeds thanks to the 17-4 stainless steel face that’s considered to be thin when compared to industry standards. The weight is pushed rather deeply towards the perimeter for more stable swings and shots. Turf interaction is improved because of the wider sole.

It’s a bulky set, which can turn off some golfers. But if you’re looking to improve several facets of your game, this forgiving set is a good choice.

  1. Tour Edge Exotics XCG7

You’re getting a set of 7 clubs instead of 8, but that’s not a problem considering that 2 of the 7 are hybrids. This is another forgiving set because of how the cavity of the sole is engineered. These clubs have tungsten in the toe and the heel. Interaction with the turf is also top-notch.

Exotics is a top of the line series from Tour Edge so that’s saying a lot. They did well in designing this set as well. It has a two-toned design which not only makes it beautiful; but functional as well. You can easily align your shots thanks to this design.

  1. Wilson Staff

You’re getting 8 clubs in this set. In addition to 5 irons, you’re getting 3 hybrids. Golfers are excited of the hybrids because they’re first to introduce the technology of Wilson called “exoskeleton”. This is important for beginners because the weight is pushed towards the perimeter for more forgiving shots.

The irons have a large head which at first gives you the impression that they’re hard to control. On the contrary, they’re very easy to work with. Of course, you’re getting the benefit of a large head which is more power.

  1. Wishon 771CSI

This is not going to make it to the list of the most popular ones, but it deserves a spot in the list of the top golf clubs this 2014. The body of the clubs is constructed using 1020 high grade carbon steel. The face is made of HS300 steel.

You’ll love the playability of this set. It has a cambered sole with a leading edge that’s blunted for improved playability.
