Can someone explains the configuration differences? I know graphite shaft is lighter but forged vs cavity back?
The cavity backed irons are often referred to as game improvement irons because the hollow back increases launch and control for mis-hits by placing the center of gravity lower and farther forward.
Forged isn’t really applicable here, but rather the term BLADED irons. Blades have a filled-in back that results in the center of gravity being placed nearer center of the club head. Therefore you tend to get better control with bladed irons versus cavity back, but blades are less forgiving on mis-hits.
Forged versus cast is the method of metal working. Forging takes a single billet of material and stamps the head into shape over many strikes of a press. Because the entire head is a single piece of metal it often results is a softer feel because the head doesn’t resonate.
Casting involves pouring molten metal into a cast. The head that results is often referred to as more “ping” and less feel. However because of the cost and waste from the billet forged irons are generally more expensive.
In general, cavity backed irons for a high to mid handicapper. Bladed irons for a low handicap to scratch golfer. The weekend warrior will not notice much difference between forged or cast heads other than the price tag.
Mark Crossfield (whom I generally agree with) reviews both directly in this video.
On a personal note: Mizuno irons are EXCELLENT. I’m now stuck between if I want these or the Cobra Bio Cell that I’ve been eyeing at golf exchange for a month.
