Hard to go wrong when something looks like that and is made by Kyoei.  Only thing I'd worry about is getting them built right.

Yup. Got a set, same size with my other Kyoei raw. Feel about same too. Actually I like old one better since it's showing more handcraft grinding, kinda garage looks for me,  these one more neat with bit soften edges. Shaft it with KBS Tour - 50gr grip and come out with D1 SW on #7.

I showed my wife a picture of these a while back and said I may get a set after passing a certain career milestone. She looked at me and said "Those belong on a wall. They are much too pretty to scuff up."

I have the same raw black set as the pic above. Thing to note is that it rusts but I think it adds to the character of the club head. Only complaint is that the rusts stains my woods’ head covers at time. So if u have white woods covers, u might wanna go with another finish.

I specifically like the leading edge relief. This should be the most aggressive leading edge relief I have ever experienced, and it is nice! I shafted it with modus 105x and the feel was just flat with a weak ball flight. Changed into the px 5.5 and it was a whole new world! Very high n penetrating ball flight. Feel off the face is very similar to my yururi flat backs(not surprising), softer kinda feel compared to miura.

I matched this set of irons to the yururi tour wedges and the shape of the wedges compliments this set of irons very well. Did mention they are all raw black too? ;)
