Yes, there’s still a demand for high-quality, value-priced golf clubs, and Tour Edge does about as good a job as anyone in the segment. All of the key boxes are checked: friendly pricing, high-quality shaft choices and construction, and solid max-game-improvment performance. A nice option for anyone who needs an easy-to-hit iron that can be acquired for less-than-premium pricing.


“Good ball speed and distance numbers pair with above-average forgiveness. High launch with mid-spin rates makes these playable for lots of recreational golfers who want to save some money.”
