I didnít like the thickness of the sole relative to my Miura BB.  Granted, they have a V sole, but the execution of the sole on the Hogans is better IMO.

I'm vacationing in Japan in April. Eying these up as a souvenir.

Any thoughts on the gapping of these irons? I prefer 4i-22˚-pw-46˚, but not 4˚ gaps all the way through.

Also anyone prefer raw over the chrome or vise versa? I like the look of both. I like chrome for initial durability, but thinking the raw will age /maintain better. I have had raw wedges, but never irons. Planning on keeping these and playing them as a secondary set the rest of my life.

Apologies for the absence from the thread. Been working in gym on long drive training more than swinging these but recently got them out, comparing 7i's: Kyoei on TT BG X vs. Cobra King Forged Pro CB on TT X7 the cavity back was longer, but I'm able to swing the Cobra 4 mph faster and feel the head is bit hotter than the blade, so always going to be longer full blast. For normal swinging the Kyoei feels better and distance given up for it doesn't matter to me as I'm long with them any way.  My preference for stepless shaft aesthetics is why I have BG's in the set, however, if the X7 was offered in 41" I'd likely replace the BGs with them. The Mizuno driving irons at the top of this bag are an absolute joy to hammer with, testing a PXG Gen II 1i soon but it will have to be exceptional to overtake the MHP5s for 1i-3i in this set. Regarding Miura, have always admired them but haven't swung a set, the Kyoei's hooked me on appearance and aggressive specs.

I found these to be almost as long as my P790s and Epic Pro irons and Mizuno 900 Forged, better feel and very forgiving....But don't hit these thin, no forgiveness in the thin dept......These blade like irons are as forgiving as any players CB out there.

Still love mine. Relief leading edge too.

Love the rusty look!

Thanks, 'Rusty The Wonder Wedge'...

Pretty easy to replicate, it was brand new. Vinegar soak for couple hours, then hydrogen peroxide soak with course salt add to the solution and refreshing solution and letting piece air dry between refreshes, day or two and done. propping club up and using a sandwich bag reduces the amount of peroxide you need to submerge the head.

This has to be done on a raw clun to work.....correct?

I just got these of Thursday. Played with them Friday. They were everything I hoped for and more. The feel off of the face and the turf interaction is as billed. They are stronger lofted so they were a club long. I guess I'll just have to get new wedges to fill gaps. Not a bad problem to have.

The PW is 46*.....do u normally play a 50* ???  Very few people play the traditional lofted clubs these days......I found these irons to be about 1/3 of a club long but I play modern lofts.  They are discontinuing the 5 way sole and going with the W grind.

Someone mentioned the new tour edge exotics CBXblades look like kyoei forgings, but I donít have any proof. Very interesting constant offset 3-PW though.

Thanks for the pics. Those really give a good idea of what they look like.
