Forged Dual Pocket Iron

Who doesn’t want more distance and forgiveness? When designing the grindworks Forged Dual Pocket Iron we wanted an iron that not only produced automatic big distance, but one that also looked great and felt great.  A pocket cavity is always a challenge when it comes to sound and feel due to how an undercut alters the sound at impact, however we had no doubt our design would use a pocket for more forgiveness and more distance, in fact we decided on double the pocket.

With a deep undercut cavity on the sole side of the iron as well as a secondary pocket along the top line we created a design that would increase the spring effect of the iron face for more ball speeds at impact and a much bigger sweet spot.  The cavity is most deep in the long irons progressing to less depth in the short irons. This helps long and mid irons produce an easy high launch for more distance while shorter irons are easier to aim and score.

We decided that a mid sized distance iron doesn’t have to look bulky and huge so we kept the head reasonably small with some offset to help square the face. The Dual Pocket Iron is a multi piece iron with forged S20C body matched with a specially developed new forged K301 Hi Velocity Forged face. Automatic distance, huge forgiveness, great feel and looks!

Our goal for our pocket cavity was to create an automatic iron to make golf more fun for a large target audience.

The challenge was creating an iron that could provide amazing distance and forgiveness without being overly large. We settled on a mid sized iron with an adequate amount of offset to help square the face to the ball and a multi piece design leveraging materials and technology.

A newly developed K301 forged face creates titanium like distance and performance while retaining good feel and sound. This face was matched with an S20C body featuring a dual pocket, one large deep lower pocket with a smaller pocket along the top line. This design helps to create a huge sweet spot meaning better forgiveness and all around distance. Like the MB1 and CB1, the center of gravity progresses through the set to create optimal trajectory and maximum performance.

There are 2 versions of the Dual Pocket Iron, the DP1, where fine tune the impact sound with a badge in the cavity which helps reduce the “clicking” noise many pocket cavities produce at impact and the DP2 (shown in this product listing) which does not have the badge for a more natural impact sound. The DP1 is now sold out and no longer available. grindworks Forged Dual Pocket Iron is our high performance automatic iron.
