    I just got mine!! I was gaming MIURA 501 CBs with KBS Tours and needed more forgiveness due to lack of playing and oh my did I get it!! This is the best feeling and longest Iron Ive ever hit. I love my MIURA but I play every six weeks now not every six days. I highly recommend! I am an 8 handicap was a 3 trending to a 12 I am confident that this will reverses the trend!!

    I got this set and love them. I gave a friends a few swings and next thing I knew I went out and got some. They gave me an extra club length on 6-aw. I am not great with the 4 or 5 yet. I did catch a 4 off the tee well once and got around 240. Highly recommend.

    Daniel, I suggest that since you are poor ball striker you try a hybrid set.

    Hi, Im 17 and im a plus handicapper. I play the nike vr pro combo at the moment but would like to switch to this club. Iron play is bringing my game down. I probably hit my irons as good as 2-4 handicappers. Do you think it would be good if i switch to these clubs? Thank you!

    First off id like to say i picked up a set of these on Ebay after trying out a couple clubs and theyre absolutely awesome, especially with some c tapers in them. The only thing is why has Nike done such a bad job of releasing these? I was excited a forged almost hybrid GI/Players club from Nike and after hitting them i was even more excited. But all ive heard about is backorders and people waiting months. I ordered the 3 iron in July and after saying it was supposed to go out Aug 1, it has now turned in to Aug 8.

    I picked up a set and had them built with KBS C-Tapers to give them a very tight ballflight. They are extremely easy to hit while giving me the feel of a quality forged iron. I am very pleased with my purchase and would tell anyone considering a players cavity back iron but wants some extra forgiveness to consider the
