2021 Iron Cover Buyer’s Guide

After never-ending reader demands, we are proud to bring you the first MyGolfSpy Iron Covers Buyer’s Guide. Long overdue!

We know you want to protect your investment and add some raw sexual energy to your golf bag. Based upon fewer dings and elevated pregnancy levels, adding covers to your irons accomplishes both of these goals.

However, improved fortification and fornication are only two indicators of iron-cover performance. Modern iron covers include additional functionalities designed to enhance your performance both on and off the course. Make sure you consider all of these aspects when making such an important purchase.

With so many amazing covers on the market, choosing the set to match your lifestyle is challenging. Today, we will showcase the market leaders in the iron cover category and help you find the right set for you.

WINNER – Nature Pure NiOx Covers

When it comes to attractiveness, no cover scored higher than the Nature Pure NiOx cover. Testers appreciated its minimalistic design as well as its ease of use. Testers were also impressed that the covers were nearly impossible to lose, no matter how hard they tried. True to its name, the Nature Pure cover’s nitrogen and oxygen construction made them the most environmentally conscious covers in the test group.

  • First in ease of use
  • First in sex appeal
  • Last in protection
  • Last in functionality

EXPERT TIP - Increasing Cover Longevity

Did you know that doubling up on iron covers not only doubles the protection for your iron but also makes the internal cover last twice as long?

Other Notable Performers

Dank Designs Quick Hitter — Golf supplements to enhance performance, such as CBD and Natty Ice, are big business these days. The Quick Hitter by Dank Designs is the ideal cover for our current performance-enhanced golf environment. This slightly oversized cover features ample internal stash space as well as an integrated herbal delivery device.

Each of these covers features a fully functional Bluetooth speaker. You can pair multiple speakers together to increase the volume or use the proprietary “cacophony mode” where each speaker can play a different song simultaneously. It’s a groundbreaking technology that will help you make friends as you drive away the annoying sounds of nature.

Mulligan’s 4 Dough Iron Cover

Mulligan’s 4 Dough Iron Cover

It was a surprise to see a well-known toy company like Mulligan move into the golf market. Golfers who try their 4 Dough covers will be glad that they did. These covers come in a variety of covers and can completely conform to the shape of any iron. Additionally, they feature the highest snackability score in the test cohort.

Did You Know?

Grass is actually much softer than steel. The longer the grass that you hit your irons from, the less damage that they will take.

The Best Iron Cover 2021 – Features That Matter

Snugness

To be effective, an iron cover must remain securely on the club. Pro tip: Covers that slide off are prone to loss and no longer protect the club.

Protection Level

While all iron covers improve bag aesthetics, Priority One is protection. You want to protect your investment and the iron cover is your strongest defender.

Ease of Insertion/ Penetration Depth

The best iron cover should slide in easily and be deep enough to secure even the longest blade. Just the tip is not a solid protection plan in any context.

Functionality

While all iron covers are designed to protect the club, many companies have expanded the functionality of their covers. The modern cover should bring more to your round than just protection.

Sex Appeal

No sane person would argue against the raw sex appeal generated by covering your irons. Though all are attractive, some covers generate more trouser pop than others.

Iron Cover Tips and Tricks

  • Make sure you find a cover that suits your style of play. As always, MyGolfSpy recommends a professional fitting.
  • Velcro closures will add additional noise to your round. If you prefer silence, stick to neoprene, latex or dominatrix-approved leather.
  • While all golfers prefer their accessories to match, don’t be afraid to mix up your covers. Pairing those from Dank Designs and Lubed Swing could give you just the cross-faded round you are looking for.
  • While traditional covers are based upon classic patterns, many modern companies have incorporated high-tech methodologies into cover design. Know your preference. Do you want that handmade look or computer-generated precision?
  • Be sure to secure your covers when not in use. The braided-titanium CoverLok is an excellent product to keep track of covers on the course and also while your cover-envying pals buy you drinks at the 19th hole.

Fun Fact- Banned on Tour!

Did you know that iron covers are currently banned on the PGA tour? Tour officials were concerned about pace of play issues as well as the overt display of iron cover fueled sensuality during family television viewing hours.

Best Iron Cover of 2021 – FAQ

Q: Is it possible to flex too much with my iron covers? 

A: We all recognize that covering your irons is a big flex and some can argue that you can take it too far. We recommend flexing as much as you are comfortable with. You hard-stepped your X-flex driver shaft three times and your choice in covers should match that swagger.

Expert Tip - Full Cameron Coverage

Limited edition putter covers, such as this Scotty Cameron Gallery Exclusive sushi cover add pop and prestige to your golf bag. Why limit the panache to just your putter? Imagine the shock and awe in your foursome when they see Cameron covers on your irons and wedges as well.

Q: Do I need to keep my irons covered at all times? 

A: Absolutely. These covers only protect your clubs when they are in place. We recommend keeping the covers on during the swing to avoid making damage when you hit the ball and grass.

Q: Since I’ve started using iron covers, I’m having so much sex that I don’t have time to play golf. What should I do?

A: Unfortunately, this is a common side-effect of iron-cover usage. The libido-elevating influence of the iron cover is well documented. We view this as a huge advantage as your clubs will be even better protected when they remain in the garage and not at the golf course.

Q: Why wasn’t BRAND X tested?

A: We know that you all have favorite brands of covers. However, the huge demand has generated a scarcity in the market that prevented all brands from being tested. For example, we had fully intended to review the new Pokemon covers but the TikTok-fueled full-foil Charizard search precluded us from acquiring samples.

Q: Ha, ha. Happy April Fool’s Day. Now are you going to do a real Iron Covers Guide?

A: No.
