Water treatment advice

I'm going to be replacing a Kinetico Mach series 2060 neutralizer with a newer neutralizer, not a Kinetico. First I'm looking for some opinions on the Fleck valves. I was interested in the Fleck 7000sxt, but it has been discontinued. Does anyone know the reason why? So I'm leaning towards the 2510sxt. Next question is I have very high Iron 8 -10 ppm. I have always just had the neutralizer then a softener and the neutralizer doubled as a filter for the iron. My thought was to add a backwashing Iron filter before the neutralizer and softener but Im concerned about a huge drop in pressure running through three seperate tanks. Just looking to pick some brains and get some opinions. Thanks in advance.

The first step should be the neutralizer. It is hard to remove iron when the pH is too low. What iron removal system (media) were you thinking of using? I would suggest using chlorination with a retention tank followed by carbon filtration. It's a little more maintenance but more effective IMO.
