Should know something soon.  At first they looked odd to me but now I know I'll be giving these a run.  Loving the 705s but they are just a tad too big.  These look somewhere between the 303 and the P3...am thinking as long as the 705 but a bit more control, more solid feeling.  The look is really growing on me!

quite like them too. They are growing on me. Thinish topline with a wider sole can't be that bad of a combination for us mere mortals.

then they're clearly not the club for you. The 500 is a game improvement iron.

YEP....  Putting Screws in Irons looks like somebody is trying to copy a competitor in the " premium price" category and it actually sickens me to see Epon go that route.  The superior forging they are known for certainly shouldn't require them to add weight screws as a Gimmick to follow PXG.

Is that how theyíre advertising the 505? Reason Iím asking is that I own the 502ís and they are def NOT game improvement irons.

Whether itís putters or irons, all OEMs copy each otherís designs and if something works for one, why not??

I think they're technically players distance irons. It's not for a low handicapper that's for sure. The 300 series and the tour are for those typ3s. 500 series would be 15 cappers give or take. I have the 503. They're excellent irons but they're not thin by any means.

More and more pros are using irons w some game improvement in their irons. Gone are the days where all pros and low handicappers are using blades. All 3 pros at my club for example are using Rogue irons which have a ton of game improvement in them.

Not a great looking club to me but Epon having a few screws in the back does not make them look like PXG, which also did not invent the use of screws, they just showed how it is not a good look if you use way too many.

Mine will be in my hands Wednesday!

They feel and sound better than my 503's.  Not surprising now that they are a true one-piece forging.

The screws certainly help dial in swing weight.  I play my irons a .25 long, it was nice to have the weight options to get swing weight back down to normal.

Fantastic!

Not only do they feel and look better, but unexpectedly and quite welcomly, the long irons launch slightly higher which is perfect for my swing.

I see another five year Epon love affair in my future.
