Been looking around at iron sets recently and shocked at how many retailers go 5-PW for sets. Then you take a closer look and realise the PW is like 42* leaving a massive gap to the typical wedge setup of most people with the next club often coming in at around that 52* mark.

Then of course you can buy that gap wedge separately for $200 on top of the $1000+ they're already asking you to spend.

Think of the level of golfer buying retail off the rack though. Probably don't need a full bag with perfect gapping as a casual/social golfer.

Better or more serious players I'd expect a custom fitted setup.

I'm due for new clubs and setup will likely be:

Driver - 10.5*
3WHL - 16.5*
7W - 20.5*
Utility Iron (4) - 23*
5-P w/ 45* PW
GW - 50*
SW - 54*
LW - 58*/60*

I love the idea of a utility in place of a set 4 iron. Higher launch and easier to hit.

I use a titleist driving iron as my 4i - super easy to pure.

Callaway Epic Max Star range announced. Ridiculously expensive, something like $300 USD+ per iron are the quotes I've seen online.

Also for a colour scheme that sounds great, I dont really like the look of them.
