Iron head components are either from a forged process or a cast process. Forged heads typically are carbon steel with a chrome or nickel plating for corrosion protection and looks. Today, the majority of iron heads are cast 431 stainless steel, a very hard stainless making adjustments of greater than 1° very difficult. TEMPO Golf Components offers many of its heads in 304 stainless with its metallurgical properties more closely associated with carbon steel. Both are considered “soft steels”. While some golfers say soft steels provide better feel and feedback the main advanatage is the ability to custom fit through easily made loft and lie adjustments. The quality, finish and performance of all our irons is second to none within the golf component industry.
Metallurgy of our irons: A material's hardness can be measured several ways but one of the most conventional methods is to test the indention hardness of the specific material and then assign a scaled value with the value or number increasing as the hardness of the material increases. A typical grade 1035 forged carbon steel iron will have a Rockwell in the vicinity of HRB-85. Your typical cast 431 stainless iron will have its Rockwell at or near HRB-98. Cast 304 stainless irons have a Rockwell near HRB-88 which much more closely approximates the characteristics of the forged iron. Both carbon steel and 304 stainless are considered "soft steels" within the steel industry.
Lie Alternations: Using a "best in industry" True Blue MR3 loft/lie bending machine I now offer as a service at a very minimal charge lie adjustment if needed. Multiple variables determine one's swing profile and whether your clubs are too upright or too flat but one thing is for sure: You cannot hit the ball accurately at its target if the lie of the club is off by more than a degree. This does require removing the club's individual wrapper and securely clamping the head in a fixture and applying force. It is possible some slight indentations or marks may occur on the head but these will be strictly cosmetic should they occur. Also, any iron heads that have had lie adjustments cannot be returned under our guaranteed satisfaction policy. Just give me a call or send me an email with your needs.
If you need help with the process of checking your swing plane give me a call so we can discuss, it's easy, and you'll be on your way to a lower score.
In the tables below the measurement units are as follows: Wt = grams, Loft = degrees, Lie = degrees, Bounce = degrees, Offset = mm
Several components are priced at the MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) as permitted by the various manufacturers. For your best price you must call or email me with your individual requirements.
Important Note: Irons are typically sold in sets of 5-PW. Irons 2, 3, 4, AW, SW and LW are always optional. This is the only way I am able to maintain complete sets of irons as I am required to purchase in complete sets. I do offer #6 irons available as singles for demos on some models, always call.
