So kuro is onoff's GI irons and new one will release this year? And that gold onoff is different and more of players iron than kuro?


  No..... They are the 2017 version of the Kuro Iron.  They look great but for my money the 2015 version can be had at 3-400 dollars cheaper.

Again...NO....  Every two years OnOff comes out with a new "Players" Cavity Iron.  This thread was born when the Kuro came out in 2015.   The 2017 Kuro just came out and that's what the difference is.....

This would be the Game Improvement Iron.... But honestly if you can break 90 the Kuro works.

Can anyone compare the heel to toe length of the 2015 Kuro to the Srixon 545 or Callaway CF16?

I had a set of Z765 and the 2015 Kuro is about the same so I would say the Z545 would be chunkier and the CF 16 a little longer as well as the lofts on those two are stronger .

           The 2015 Kuro for me is softer and incredibly easy to hit and workable.

The 545/565 and the CF16 both employ a forged frame with a separate welded in place spring steel face piece for added distance.  The Kuro is a one piece forged head, no spring steel face, so the distance will be shorter.  Size wise, I think the Srixon and Callaway are a smig larger, and with the CG set deeper into the head than the Kuro so they will launch high, thus offsetting the stronger lofts a little.  Honestly, these irons are in a different class.  The Kuro's will feel like a traditional forged iron with butter softness on center impacts and a good deal of "feedback" when you miss.  The spring steel clubs will feel more numb, and the sound will be more of a tink when you miss the center of the face.  Apples to oranges.

My 2015 kuro and so money, I hit them a mile and they feel buttery . The long irons are my favorite to hit. Just point and shoot. Tried others irons on my demo day and nothing out shined those. On a side note I like it when I'm the only one in a what seems to be a 500 mile radius that has these irons

I feel the same way but I sold my back up set ( new in box ) to a buddy so I have 1 local guy playing the Kuros.   I bought another new set that's in my basement for when I want to look at a new set but that won't be anytime soon.

My ongoing search for a 4-iron led me to Kuro finally. The look is VERY impressive and I love it. Gold finish looks better than in pictures. But sole and top-line is much thicker than what I expected. compared with TF616 (what I considered thick before receiving Kuro) and Yururi MB, Kuro is too big for my taste. Hit a few balls off mat and feeling was good but not great.

Wish they offered modus 120. I will probably change the shaft and see if I get a better numbers but what a letdown.

and gold finish gets scratched VERY easily. Will probably ruin the look after 3 rounds.

That is a thick Top Line....  The 2015 Kuro isn't that thick from my eye.
