Golf- Best Irons for under $500?

I'm thinking about getting a new set of Irons that will last me, well, probably forever.

I know there are a lot of golfers on here and just thought I would see what folks had to say.

I'm about a 15 handicap and have been using my first set of irons for the last 7 years; Wilson ProStaff Graphites.. they are ehh.. and I'm just wanting to get a premiere set to last.

I've been thinking about the Taylor Made r7 steel shafts from Dick's; but any suggestions would be appreciated!!

ebay.

You can get one hell of a set on ebay for under five. 15 handicap, you might look at big bertha's, very forgiving. I hit Callaway Fusions and LOVE them. I have hit a ton of clubs and these seem to give me great ball control. Working it left and right, forgiving on mishits and have a great look.

I just bought a set of Cleveland CG Golds. They were $599.00. I hit the Callaway Big Bertha's, Ping G10, and a set of Titleist's and I hit the Clevelands better than all of them. The set came with a hybrid 3 and 4 iron. I absolutely love the hybrids, I have never been able to hit a regular 3 or 4 but I knock the shit out of the ball with the hybrids.

The only thing keeping me away from ebay atm is that I really want to test them first and I know Dicks has a test range in the store... maybe I'll go trial some of these and then hit ebay

No love for the Taylor Mades?

Or hit a demo day. That way you can try out tons of clubs, then make your decision. I would only recommend for your skill level to stay away from blades.....hell even a lot of tour pro are staying away these days. with today's irons you can get workability with forgiveness, something that blades will not give you.

Funny you mention that.. I keep an old Pitching wedge blade that my grandfather used to use in my bag for luck.... occasionally I'll pull it out and try to hit it at the range.. I'm good for about 1 outta 3 decent shots with that thing.

Build your own, I've built every club in my bag except my TM R500 driver.

It's very easy, I have 2 Forged Snake eyes wedges 56 and a 52, and a cool set of Snake Eyes Cavity back irons. I have Rifles in the Wedges and graphite in the irons.

Just had to read up a bit on how to custom them for me (swing speed = Shaft flex)

I love the Irons, But the wedges are pure Magic, feel like butta.

I'm sure its easy for YOU, but I'm an idiot when it comes to building just about anything and by the time I figured it out thru trial and error; I would have spent more than just buying from the factory

Wish I could though
