...I've been doing some research on clubs, and I'm thinking about one of the following sets of irons. I'll probably try to demo all of them before I decide, but I wanted to get your thoughts too. I'm trying to find a set that is relatively forgiving, that will last me a while as I continue to improve, and that won't get me into any bad habits.....Cleveland TA5, Ping i3 O, Taylor-Made Firesoles or maybe Supersteel, Mizuno t-zoid T3.

If you can demo any of those first, you'll find your answer yourself as to how each set responds to your swing. I'm not familiar with alll of those models, but assume the more forgiving the cavity backed irons are - the better. Pings are pretty forgiving on toe and heel hits and I assume some of the others would be game improvement clubs as well. Not all irons are so forgiving on toe and heel hits, but you'll see that right away in whatever you end up doing as a demo.

Believe it or not, my American neighbors up the street are moving from one apartment to another this month and they had a rummage sale yesterday. We were riding by on our bikes and stopped to take a look. On their front lawn was a full set of Ping Eye II Orange dot irons (I think that is 1 degree flat in lie angle). The man said he had too many sets of clubs and the prices were at rummage sale levels. My wife was ready to buy a bike for my son that was much too large, some skis for the kids which were much too long and who knows what else until I dragged her away and back to reality....
