    I’ve tested the irons and I must say they are the sweetest, softest, most buttery, orgazmic feeeeling irons I’ve ever hit… and they are Hot Hot Hot… 😀

    Notice “Chromoly” on neck? Chromoly was all the rage for BMX kids bikes in the late 70’s…light weight yet strong bike frames…

    It’s a harmonica so you can do the blues after a horrible round.

    Cosmetics would be my guess. Make it look more tech than it actually is and sell it to the masses.

    No… they are ‘heat vents’ to allow the hot air to escape…. because the clubs are soooo hot…. 😛

    if i were to take a guess i would say it is a dampening material placed behind the badge to help create a softer feeling club without being a forged iron. Look at the upper left side of the pic and the dark lining around the badge… then follow it down the side of the pic and it appears to run under the badge in the upper section of the face. i don’t imagine that it is a hollow area behind the badge… that would be a nightmare IMHO.

      Maybe it’s insulation material between the badge and the Hot Metal irons… ya think .. 😮
