The majority of Stewart clubs were made in the standard flat back design. A number of instructional books recommended starting with this club when first taking up the game. The name dates back to the 1890's and these clubs evolved from the "general" iron of the mid to late 1800's. It was intended as a general purpose club, primarily for approaching shots.
"The Mid-Iron has slightly more loft the the Driving Iron and is the ideal club for general play through the fairway"
