Yesterday with the struggles off tee, I got a good demonstration of the trade offs involved with choosing 'players' or GI irons. When having to hit out of the deep kimchi, I was glad to have the compact iron . Then on a long par 3, I hit it way out on the toe and came up short. No perfect option I guess, other than a split set.
I'd love to see a set of SL compact clubs from LW to 6i, and then have have regular players cavity clubs above that.
