Verdict

For those who prefer using blade or muscleback irons – and perhaps don’t buy into the idea of utility clubs – this offers a compromise worth closer inspection. At address it retains the look of a classic iron despite its relatively thick topline. It’s also forged so there is enough feel to shape your shots. Crucially however, it’s the combination of a forgiving contact and controlled flight that should attract the low handicap golfer.
