Clearly a 4. If you direct your attention to the part of the club that is in the top left of the picture, the number four is actually quite easy to see. A good idea to make sure that you have the basics down before you hit the course, especially with a set of clubs as new as the one you have photographed.

Be sure to let us all know how you hit them!

After three range sessions I'm hitting them well. The thin topline is like a butter knife and when you hit it pure it feels like butter. The short blade length takes a bit getting used to if past irons were larger headed. Once dialed in they are very acurate sticks.

Just picked up a brand new set with Project X 6.0 Flighted. These are an absolute dream to hit. I was playing '09 Taylor Made TP's with the same shaft and the X-Proto's are 1/2 to 1 club longer in distance with a lower trajectory. It is definitely designed for the lower handicapper as you need a consistent ball strike. They are much easier to work than my TP's. Fades and draws are so easy to pull off now.

I wouldn't consider these blades as they are much more forgiving then the traditional muscle back blades. They aren't CB's either as you do have to be a decent ball striker and off center hits are felt in the hands. They are definitely a cross between the two. Trajectory is lower in the short irons yet distance is not sacraficed one bit.

I will probably never ever need another set of irons again as I pretty much found my dream set!

Heat index was over 100* and only had an hour. Demo'd a six iron into a net (@25feet away) at Golfsmith's. Rifle 5.5

WOW!!! These feel great! I would love to take them out to the course. I am almost tempted to go back to blades. This 6 iron felt as pure as anything I have ever tried.

I am looking forward to reading reviews and comparisons.

I've had mine for about 18 months. I have other blades but keep coming back to these. Paired with PX Flighted 6.5.

I really liked them when I tried them, however I would go with Scratch or the like before deciding these were the best.

I have the newer Razr X Musclebacks in 4-PW with KBS Tour stiff shafts and simply love mine. Best iron, feel wise I've ever hit and that includes my previous Mizuno MP 68s. Wouldn't trade these for anything else out there.

Just bought them, worried about the size of the head. Are you using them and how are they on forgiveness?

I've been playing the 2007 Callaway X-Forged with PXi 7.0's nd really like them.  Do you think I should try the Blades?

These are the only irons I've had that the honeymoon phase does not end with.
Every time you look in the bag you think YUP.
Every time you address the ball you think YUP.
Every time you hit them you think YUP.
Cally should make them an icon iron and just keep making them with full options on shafts & grips because frankly for a serious/decent player these are as good as you can get.
I've got S300 tipped half an inch and I'd be interested in how a fresh set would play with the new PXi shafts.
Hey they are even easy to maintain the looks with, I don't know how they did it but mine still look perfect. I had MP68's that looked ancient after 6 months. All round best iron around I believe.
