What we say...

2013 Irons Test

James and Kit felt it looked a little out of place in this category, being long from heel to toe rather than chunky. James and Joel noticed how thin the standard grip felt but praised how well it sat behind the ball. All testers agreed it wasn’t overly compact but the feel at impact was relatively powerful. Forgiveness on off-centre hits was lacking somewhat and whilst it felt heavy, it was easy to hit compared with other better player models. James and Joel both averaged 166 yards, Kit 150 yards.

First Hit Test Feb 2013 Joel Tadman (3 hcap)

These irons go against the brand’s reputation and target the better player seeking soft feel and feedback off the face in a great value set. When looking down at set-up, you’d never be able to match the brand to the iron. The top-line is thin, but not overly so, and the compact head looks classy. Distance was impressive, too.

Pros: Stylish look and incredible value for money.
Cons: Lacking in forgiveness; the name will need to convince good players.


Made from a supersoft 8620 steel as used on Tour and has True Temper Dynamic Gold shafts. It comes fitted with
Lamkin Crossline grips as standard.
