MP Fli Hi or Jpx800Pro 4 iron

Just wondering what people think would be easier to hit?

Not a big fan of hybrids - so would prefer a more traditional iron

Or an MP Fli Hi...

Fli Hi is the way, hollow design with perimeter weighting so it is easy to launch. Can't believe I haven't had one in my bag before now!

I struggle with woods/hybrids off the fairway but find the Fli-Hi's very easy to hit having said that I am getting my CLK 17* working nicely off the deck lately (Thanks Deemac) but do try the hi-fli out very nice indeed :)

Another MP Fli-Hi fan here, got the 4i, and the 2i which I'm waiting to get reshafted and tweaked, as I got it of the Bay and it's not quite the correct spec

Easy to hit clubs though, much more penetrating than hi-brids, good to have on a windy course

Thanks for the replies

I currently have an MP650 hybrid (22) and find that there is a big gap between that and my JPX800Pro 5 iron, especially off the tee

I was thinking about getting either the MP Fli Hi 4 or JPX800Pro 4 iron to bridge the gap

I can whole heartedly recommend the MP Fli Hi. I have both the 3 and 4 iron in my bag.

Easy to hit and great in windy conditions compared with a hybrid as they tend to fly lower. Mine got a lot of use recently at Brampton.

The construction and design of them, make them surprisingly forgiving.

Aanother MP Fli-hi Fan here too. I have the #2. I don't carry it on a regular basis as it's more of a driving iron for me on a couple of courses I play. They are plenty forgiving though. I have a DG SL300 in mine and it gives me a low, penetrating ball flight.

I love the MP FLI HI. In fact I find them easier to hit than my JPX 4 iron. I have the MP FLI HI 2 and 3 iron and when I need to use the 4 iron, I tend to take out the MP 3 and just do a 3/4 swing. It actually has a wider sole than the JPX and feels softer too. Gosh maybe I miss my MP-57...
