Creation of Forged Irons
Forged irons go through a much more hands-on and expensive process. Therefore the average forged irons cost more then cast-produced clubs. These irons are formed by skilled workers who heat the metal up and pound the iron into shape.
Forged irons are extremely durable due to the process in which they are created from a single piece of metal. Unlike clubs formed by casting, there are no weak spots caused by naturally occuring gas bubbles when pour the molten metal.
Feel is increased in forged irons, which means mis-hits can be felt easier. This helps a golfer know how he is hitting the ball.
Many feel that shots struck by forged irons go farther than those of cast-processed irons, but that isn't true. Power is determined by the mechanics of the golfer's swing, not the club head.
Choosing Forged Clubs
Determining the types of irons that you want to use should be done on personal feel and performance. Whatever feels right for the golfer is what he should choose.
