I have tried many forged cavity backs and enjoyed playing them...but my true love is a solid forged blade!  One set is a Callaway 2018 Apex MB set and it is amazing.  Tomorrow I get to put the irons and wedges below into play and am super PUMPED!!  
The muscles on the Blades is quite large and offers a ton of feel and a lot of forgiveness for slight misses!!  Enjoy!!

4 iron is VC01 in a Satin finish

5 thru PW is the VM01 in a Satin Finish

You mustn't tell us about your round, because it's well known that what happens with Vega, stays with Vega.

I've had all three...plus a TEI insert all were nice, but too light for me at 34".
But I prefer my 2012 black Studio select, with deep milling.  25 gram weights.

Wow!  That’s all I can say.  Enjoy them, they are beautiful.  I own one of their Samurai putters and the quality and look is amazing.

Overall the round was very solid first time out with them.  Hit alot of great shots!  Par 5 second shot with 5 iron from 196 to 12 ft., wedge from 65 yards to 3 ft, caught a couple out of the bermuda rough(hate bermuda rough) that flew a bit farther, but really like the irons and wedges.  Set will be in the rotation going forward with the Callaway Apex MB and DW BBF wedges!

Set will be “In the rotation”?  You regularly switch iron sets?  Wow. Interesting.  I’d never consider it.


...They are pretty though.  Enjoy them.
