Our Review: The most obvious characteristics of these irons is their wide sole, partially due to the notch cavity at the back of the clubhead. This, together with the bevelled toe reduce the turf drag when hitting in the rough.
The transfer of the weight to the perimeter of the clubhead allows for a bigger sweet spot and greater stability during miss hits, something highly appreciated by beginner and average golfers. Together with the wider sole this makes these irons very forgiving clubs.
The short hosel and compact design render this a very appealing club, perfectly suited for high- and mid handicap players. At $149 for a set from 3 to PW they deliver excellent playability and value.
Likes: Remarkably accurate even with off center hits (hence a great club for beginners and average players); nice ‘traditional’ design.
Dislikes: Nothing negative found.
