Golf irons generally come in sets from the 3- or 4-iron club through the pitching wedge. It is also increasingly common these days for the 3- and 4-irons to be replaced with hybrids. Different sets will vary with the set-up depending on what manufacturer and what product line you are buying.
When shopping GlobalGolf.com, we refer to the different club makeups with abbreviations such as 3-PW (which would contain every iron from the 3-iron through the 9-iron as well as a pitching wedge) or 5-PW, AW, SW (which would contain every iron from the 5-iron through the 9-iron as well as a pitching wedge, approach wedge, and sand wedge).
And since many manufacturers now offer "hybrid iron sets" (where some of the longer irons are replaced with easier-to-hit hybrids), those sets are designated like 4H, 5H, 6-PW, AW (which would contain a 4-hybrid, 5-hybrid, every iron between the 6-iron and 9-iron, along with a pitching wedge and approach wedge).
There are three types of clubhead designs to consider when buying. A blade style head is a club that is used by very skilled golfers and professionals. Cavity back heads are easier to hit and more forgiving than blades. Game improvement heads are the most forgiving golf club heads which make them the easiest to hit and are ideal for beginners.
Iron sets will come with the option of steel or graphite shafts, along with an option of shaft flexes. The common flexes will be ladies, senior, regular, stiff, and extra stiff.
