The wear is a non issue to me. Buy raw wedges, then you have tons of random rust. Buy black clubs, then they scuff up easily on the sole and face. Buy chrome Forged clubs, they ding and dent super easy. To me the durability is why I went to the i200s, so am a bit confused what all the fuss is over the marks. Iím glad I have a set of irons I can just drop and slam in the bag and not worry about abuse. If the marks get to you, then polish them back up. No biggie.
And they are not short if you get fit into the proper shaft and specs. They are longer than my old Mizunos with the same lofts, and as long as my old Forged TECs with 3* stronger specs. Iím not a big hitter but get, 125,135,145,155 with my PW-7i. They are consistent, straight, and forgiving with lots of spin.
+1. Plenty long, no doubt about that. In the power specs to match lofts, I hit them as far as I did the P790.
The Ďhydropearlí is not the actiall finish of the i200, it is more a finishing touch. Insignificant to the durability of the clubs.
