We round up the best golf iron sets for under £600

Irons are a fundamental part of a golfer’s bag, let’s be honest.

For how many clubs you get, iron sets are actually very reasonably priced. But don’t let that distract you from the importance of picking the right combination between price and quality.

In this buyer’s guide we pick what we think are the best iron sets for under £600, which is a fair but not too generous budget for this sort of purchase.

Best iron sets for under £600

Callaway Golf Steelhead XR Steel Irons – American Golf EXCLUSIVE!

Combine beautiful shaping, playability, and breakthrough performance with the all-new Steelhead XR Irons. These irons have been designed based on the original and successful X-14 Steelhead irons including a slightly longer blade length, a slightly more rounded toe, and the signature hosel-to-face transition. Plus feature Callaway Golf`s next-generation 360 Cup Face which allows the edges of the ultra-thin face to freely flex and release at impact with greater efficiency, adding ball speed that promotes more distance, especially on off-center hits.

Key Features:

  • Next-Generation 360 Face Cup™
  • Steel-Infused Polyurethane Layer
  • Control & Distance
  • 1-Year Guarantee & Steel Shafts

Callaway Rogue X Steel Golf Irons

Rogue X Irons are a total distance overhaul, with our 360 Face Cup and VFT, multi-material construction, Urethane Microspheres, and a component package designed for maximum distance. Tungsten Weighting allows us to position the CG in each of the long irons with extraordinary precision, promoting optimum launch and control at each individual loft. The tungsten, twice as heavy as steel, concentrates significant weight into a small space in the form of an intricately shaped part, which is key to precisely controlling CG location.

Key Features:

  • 360 Face Cup and VFT
  • Rogue Pro Performance Package
  • Tungsten Weighting for Optimal Flight and Control
  • Urethane Microspheres for Phenomenal Sound and Feel

Wilson D9 Steel Irons

The intelligent design of the Wilson D9 iron ensures you have more power built-in. Engineers compared various different head shapes and power holes arrangements to give you higher launch and low spin, to optimise distance performance.

Key Features:

  • Power Holes 2.0
  • Ultra-Thin Face
  • Lowest Centre of Gravity
  • 1-Year Warranty / KBS Max Ultralite Steel Shafts / Lamkin Crossline Genesis Grips

The new Wilson D9 irons are designed to be their longest and most forgiving to date thanks to upgraded technology that includes the thinnest and lest supported face in the company’s history.

Cobra Radspeed Steel Golf Irons

The Cobra RADSPEED iron derives its name from the new Radial Technology used in its construction, and this groundbreaking method has a hugely beneficial effect on performance. By using a strategic placement of weight relative to the clubhead’s centre of gravity Cobra have created a golf club that optimises both ball speed and forgiveness. With more mass placed extremely low in the heel and toe sections (the furthest point from the CG), the RADSPEED iron brings a stability that has never been seen before. 

Key Features:

  • New Radial Technology Brings A Stability Never Seen Before 
  • PWRSHELL Face Produces Incredible Ball Speed 
  • 3D Printed Nylon Medallion  
  • A Perfect Blend Of Power & Precision 

The irons have probably one of the coolest tech stories in the range as they feature the same 3D printing technology we saw Cobra recently unveil in their special edition putter.
