New to the market nowadays is the Iron/Hybrid sets.

Hybrid Sets

By far the most recent of the iron types on the market is the hybrid irons. Aimed towards players who struggle to hit longer irons, the hybrid set progress from cavity back short irons, through hollow back or reduced cavity mid irons to part-wood-part-iron longer clubs. The benefits of this type of set are clear. The cavity back short irons offer maximum forgiveness and control for shorter shots into greens. Following that, the hollow back mid irons move the weight of the club head lower and further back on the club to produce easily-hit high mid iron shots. Finally the long irons combine fairway wood distance with the control and accuracy of a long iron. For a mid handicap golfer or older player, this set could provide the perfect mix to help your iron-play.
