MD GOLF SUPERSTRONG FORGED £299(s)

Design and Tech Benefits Despite the affordable price tag, these irons have an expensive look. Clear white grooves are highlighted by a dark grey head creating an appealing appearance that should attract plenty of good amateurs. Carbon steel clubheads should provide a soft feel while the dark finish will help to reduce glare from the sun and make the ball stand out, begging to be hit at address.

GM VERDICT A solid performer ideal for those who can rely on consistent strikes from the fairway. Any mid or low handicapper after a relatively inexpensive set should take these out for a spin. The short irons offer a crisp, solid contact and medium ball flight. They lack the forgiving nature of more expensive shallow cavity irons.

In his current role, Neil is responsible for testing drivers and golf balls. Having been a part of the Golf Monthly team for over 15 years and playing off a handicap of 3, he has the experience to compare performance between models, brands and generations. For 2022 he thinks the main trend in drivers is: "In a word, consistency. Whilst all the brands are talking about ball speed (and the new drivers are certainly long), my biggest finding has been how much more consistent the ball flights are. Mishits don't seem to be causing the same level of drop-off or increase in the spin numbers. This means that more shots seem to be flying the way you want them to!" As far as golf balls are concerned the biggest development is in the, "three piece, non-Tour, urethane-covered section. For regular golfers, these models offer superb performance at both ends of the bag without denting your wallet quite as much as the premium Tour-played options."


Originally working with the best coaches in the UK to produce instruction content, he is now the brand's Digital Editor and covers everything from Tour player interviews to gear reviews. In his time at Golf Monthly, he has covered equipment launches that date back well over a decade. He clearly remembers the launch of the Callaway and Nike square drivers as well as the white TaylorMade driver families, such as the RocketBallz! If you take a look at the Golf Monthly YouTube channel, you'll see his equipment videos dating back over a decade! He has also conducted 'What's In The Bag' interviews with many of the game's best players like Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm. Over the years, Neil has tested a vast array of products in each category and at drastically different price-points.
