I'm just worried that it may be too much club for me

I think the TM300 forged iron is the best forged cavity back I've ever hit. Smooth as butter and pretty as heck. I'd jump all over a set if you have the opportunity.

I own(ed) both of them. If you are referring to the original pro combos I can attest to them. I played 2rds and had 2 range sessions with them before I sold them.
Liked: The mid irons and blades felt really good but did not feel seemless. The mid irons feel like the 2008/09 Split Cavity's. The long irons were the weakest part of the set.
I just never fell for them, I bought them for such a cheap price new back when they were going for $800 new (I Paid $450 on Ebay) and I sold them for a minimal loss.
Liked: Everything!!!! I bought these in Oct 2002, they were a demo set that looked all scratched up on the soles, they wanted $450 for them. I licked my thumb and wiped the dirtiest one, realized they were in 9+/10 shape. Mgr agreed to sell them to me for $400.
Visually they look perfect at address and I have gotten more compliments on how good they look. They are still in awesome shape. I looked at the TM320's 1st thinking they would be better suited for my game but I was able to demo the 300's and found I hit the 300's lower with no difference in forgiveness.
I have demo'd dozens of various forged/cast irons over the last 10 years. I have liked a lot of them but never liked them better to justify spending the money.
I do not want to call it a dislike but as I have gotten older I realized there are some subtle nuances to an iron I need to take note of ie: sole grind. I am a sweeper/picker of the ball but my miss is chunking it. I am starting to think that these might have too sharp of a leading edge.
If I played more I would be more serious about getting a set with more bounce.
My recommendation is to look for a demo 6 iron for the 300's, they are all over Ebay for very short $$. Grab one and try it out, save some $$ on chancing it on a whole set.
