Forged Blade Irons - A Look At The Market

Forged Blade Irons

So you've got over the cavity back vs blade iron question and have decided on blades...what next?

Well question two revolves around the clubhead and in particular the process by which it has been manufactured. Your choice here is cast or forged and different blade iron sets are constructed according to one or the other.

Generally speaking forged blades are more expensive than those that have been cast because of the fact that they have been shaped out of a solid piece of metal rather than cast out of a mold.

The general argument in favor of forged irons (although not all golfers will agree) is that the construction process provides a clubhead that offers more feel as compared to a cast iron. As the fundamental aim of a set of blades is increased feel and hence control, adding the forging process to the mix can provide a very refined set of precision irons.

Here we take a look at a few of our favorite forged blade sets:
