Might not shoot up for a custom fit but they may be on sale at that price.
M6 are the most forgiving irons TM make M5s are a bit sleeker.
I would say any set u get make sure it has a gap wedge that matches the set, think it's often too big a step going from a chunky PW to a bladed GW.
Mcguirks will have a M6 to hit at the Grange driving range and will do a custom fit that u get back in the price.

I posted a thread about Ben Hogan golf here before, I tried there demo program and was very impressed with the clubs. Every inch as good as the Taylormade Speedblades I am playing now. Since they only sell direct to consumers they knock out the middle man mark up so the prices are quite reasonable.
It's not Mcguirks but you could get a set of irons from Ben Hogan and use the gift certs to round out the set with some new wedges or something.

I've heard good things about the Ben Hogan clubs alright but the vouchers are for 350 so I only really want to add another 150/200 to that myself.

I got M6 irons in their Black Friday sale a few weeks back. I got fairways and a driver too. I'm a high handicapper and was moving up from a set of clubs from the mid naughties. I am at home with the 6, 7, 8, 9 and PW already. The 5 iron is taking a bit of time to adjust. The 3 and 5 fairways are suiting me perfectly and the driver is growing on me. I had a great day with it today, 11 fairways on 12 holes.

What would ye say are the big difference from your old set? Nice to get the full set right through to driver, the M6 woods are sweet clubs.

Sorry to enter barge in on the thread, as a high handicapper, did you get custom fitted?
I'm a beginner golfer with a 28 handicap, am taking lessons, ive a mixed set of hand me down steel, stiff, irons from my brothers.
Was looking at getting a new set like the mizuno jpx919 hot metal irons and getting them custom fitted.
My brother have alot of vouchers for mcguirks that they're kind enough to put towards a set for me.
Is it recommended for beginners to get customer fitted as i'd really like a new set of my own, i've a slow swing so think id need graphite clubs

As a beginner I would imagine getting custom fitted would be a waste if money. If you're off 28, with some practice you should come down significantly from that. And your swing will change in the process which means the custom fit will not be for your new swing. They'll essentially be no longer custom fit for you.
If you want custom fit clubs someone will take your money. But if you want to spend money on getting better spend it on lessons. You can ask them about your equipment while you're there and they'll advise you on whether you need to change anything soon, but at the end of the day there's no real shortcut to getting better. It takes practice and a few lessons.

you're getting lessons? ask your teacher for advice on what shaft to get based on your swing. other than that you probably don't need any fitting advice.
unless you're an older player, i'd expect regular iron shafts rather than graphite will be suitable. certainly you need to lose the stiff shafts ASAP.
