The Verdict: Fourteen is best known in the United States for its wedges, but its irons shouldn't be overlooked. In fact, this set could have many thinking fundamentally differently about how the iron set should be put together. It starts with a 23-degree 5-iron with a 39-inch shaft. That's often the loft of a 4-iron and length of a 3-iron. The strong lofts include a 42-degree pitching wedge. However, thanks to the deep undercut cavity in this one-piece forging, there's plenty of weight down low, so achieving height isn't an issue. Price, however, is a consideration. These don't come cheap—especially for seven sticks.
Loft: 6-iron: 26 degrees; PW: 42
