Best Game Improver Irons of 2020

By: Golfshake Editor | Thu 06 Feb 2020 | Comments

Game Improvement Irons are engineered for a wide spectrum of golfers, generally those searching for greater performance and forgiveness. Packed with the latest technology incorporated to make the game that little bit easier for the majority of players, these clubs make up a hugely popular area of the market. Golfshake's Equipment Expert, Ryan Rastall has tested and reviewed the latest releases, and he has taken the time to share his favourites for 2020.

PGA Professional at Howley Hall Golf Club in Leeds, Ryan has taken these irons into his Performance Centre, deploying TrackMan analysis to assess the performance of the various models.


PING has long been renowned for creating irons that deliver forgiveness, and the G410 is no exception. Featuring a refined look and smaller head than may be anticipated for this type of iron, this is a high performance game improvement model in a compact design. The face and cavity structure of the G410 was engineered to promote faster ball speeds and greater distance, while it benefits from a shorter blade length and 10% less offset compared to the G400.

Callaway MAVRIK

Deploying revolutionary A.I technology during the design process, Callaway's MAVRIK has seen every loft created from the ground up, ranging from pitching wedge to four-iron, with the face reflecting that. These feature a new Flash Face Cup with sophisticated face architecture, a level of engineering that is new for the golf industry. By implementing a different Flash Face for each iron, Callaway has boosted ball speed and increased spin robustness across the set.


Mizuno MP-20 HMB

Continuing Mizuno's revered status as a manufacturer of irons, the MP-20 HMB offers a full set of performance hybrid irons in a sharp ‘tour-ready’ profile, built on the ball speed of Chromoly material in the face and neck, supported by a precision stainless steel body and tungsten weighting. It offers the proportions, topline and offset transition of a classic Mizuno muscleback with a generous sole width that’s hidden at address, and is designed to help consistent players pursuing added ball speed without sacrificing their shot-making.


Cobra SZ Speedzone

Ideal for those golfers looking to get the ball in the air easier, the SZ Irons, which Cobra say deliver ultra-low CG and increased ball speed thanks to the brand's first ever carbon fiber topline, are worth considering in 2020, have been created to deliver greater levels of forgiveness, enhancing playability for players across a range of handicaps.


TaylorMade SIM

TaylorMade's SIM - Shape In Motion - has been designed to allow the head to move through the air faster. This has been achieved through the inclusion of Speed Bridge Technology, which was a key part of the M5 and M6, and reduces vibration on impact with the ball and improves energy transfer, making it more efficient, delivering distance and forgiveness.

Titleist T300

The T300 features a mid-size head and has been created to delivers the best combination of high launch, long distance and forgiveness, ensuring that there is something for all golfers. Among the key components from Titleist is the 'Max Impact' technology for consistent ball speed across the face.



Undoubtedly at the premium end of the spectrum, but the technology within the PXG is undeniably impressive, contributing to the transfer of speed from the head and into the ball, providing great distance, with the weighting of the club being low to help golfers launch their iron shots high.
