This positioning of the COG ensures added height on all iron shots which promotes both distance and control on approach shots to the green. 

These super game improvement irons are also known for the exceptional distances that they produce thanks to Cleveland’s turbocharged face design that is featured on the Launcher HB Turbo’s.

Super Game Improvement Irons Buyer Guide

Game improvement irons have the potential to change your golf game completely but various important factors need to be taken into consideration before buying a set of these irons. 

Design

Super game improvement irons feature various unique design characteristics. These irons are known for their oversize clubheads that resemble the look of a hybrid. From a design perspective, super game improvement irons are packed with technology that promotes distance, high launch angles, stability, and exceptional feel. 

These oversize irons are very easy to hit and players with slower swing speeds love them but they aren’t as popular amongst better players with faster swing speeds. Lower handicappers seek workability and forgiveness and this is something that isn’t necessarily associated with super game improvement irons. 

Shafts

Buying a new set of irons is great, but it is very important that your new irons are fitted with the correct shaft for you. Super game improvement irons are available in both graphite and steel shafts with different flexes. Graphite shafts offer a lot of variety in terms of different shaft weight options, in comparison, steel shafts are only available in a small variety of weight options. 

From a durability standpoint, however, steel shafts are way more durable than graphite shafts. To learn more about different golf shaft flexes watch this video. 

Swing Speed

Swing speed is always a hot topic of discussion. Super game improvement irons are designed for players with slower swing speeds. The design of these irons focuses on promoting maximum distance and added height which are two things that players with slow swing speeds normally struggle with. 

Just because super game improvement irons are designed for slow swinging players doesn’t mean that players with fast swing speed shouldn’t play with these easy to hit irons. If your swing speed is above average and you want to play with super game improvement irons make sure that your spin and launch numbers are optimal by visiting your nearest PGA qualified professional for a fitting. 

How To Hit A Super Game Improvement Iron 

Rhythm

Super game improvement irons are designed to launch the golf ball into the air with ease and these iron designs also promote maximum distance. Rhythm is key throughout your golf game but it is even more important when playing with super game improvement irons. 

A good rhythmic swing is a must to allow the golf club to do its job. Rhythmic swings combined with the big sweet spots of super game improvement irons will ensure optimal performance on every shot in terms of both distance and accuracy. 

Distance Control

As you know by now super game improvement irons are designed to maximize distance. In addition to their design features, manufacturers also choose to manufacture these irons with strong standard lofts. 

What that means is that if you play with cavity back irons your pitching wedge has 48 degrees of loft, super game improvement irons will probably have 44 or 46 degrees of loft and this pattern will repeat itself throughout the set. 

If you do switch over to super game improvement irons it is very important to keep this in mind to ensure good distance control out on the golf course. 

Final Thoughts

Super game improvement irons have been game-changers for many golfers around the world. These easy to hit irons are ideal for players with slower swing speeds that are looking for added distance and height on their irons shots.
