You’re not only a decent player, but want to look the part as wellt. Today’s players irons address both those concerns with clubs that provide more than enough forgiveness to assist the occasional missed shot while providing a look that says you’re a player. As such, manufacturers tend to provide some help with the long irons, leading to the use of tungsten or other means to lower the center of gravity for an easier launch.

All while making sure you still look like the player you are.
