What we say...
Our two testers found the Snake Eyes 675XC irons a little less forgiving than some of the other models we tested. Looks wise both John and Richard were impressed and both remarked on good, solid ball strikes. But in John's opinion, they are a little on the heavy side.

Our team of higher-handicap testers all thought the 675XC looked great but that they would probably suit a better game-improver rather than a guy on a high teens handicap. While the clubs stood up in terms of distance and feel, the test team weren’t massively convinced about the forgiveness – something close to game improver’s heart.

Snake Eyes 675XC Irons are for middle-handicap players seeking a solid, clean design with the soft feel of a forged iron, the 675XC irons offer an attractive game improvement option.
They target players who appreciate a clean set up with a more traditional profile, but who understand they don't always catch the ball on the centre of the club face.
The 675XCs are precision billet forged from 1030 carbon steel, providing high-quality performance and a soft feel, with a higher level of forgiveness. A deeper-than-most cavity requires a six-step forging process.
To allow progressive swing weights through the set, the Snake Eyes 675XC irons feature 8g weight increments between lofts.
Fitted with True Temper Black Gold frequency tuned shafts.
The Snake Eyes 675XC Irons, suited for a better game-improver over any other standard of golfer.
