No big deal. Just have them ordered to your specs.
Seems reasonable.  :)

I'm a solid player (3 hdcp) and was demoing forged blades today from all the usual suspects, when the rep handed me one of these. I chuckled, but the said to hit it. The result was a towering soft draw that carried 185. Couldn't believe it was a 7i. That's 5i for me normally. I kept going and just couldn't mishit it. Every shot was a carbon copy. I could go hard at it and fly it 195 or put little "chip" swing on it and fly it 170, which is a nuked 7i for me normally. I understand the way they tweak shaft length and lofts to make them long, but it wasn't just long, it was friggin' pure. So pure that I'm going back next week when they have a full set in. Not sure if I can get over the looks or the fact that they are "game improvement" irons, but if the whole set feels as good, these might end up in my bag. And I can't believe I'm saying that.

Same thing here. These are supper easy to hit and just launch the ball a mile. Actually feel pretty good and aren't that bad looking at address. Definite possibility for a driving iron.

These irons are ugly from every angle except the one that matters, and that's coming from a Nike fan. That said, they look fantastic from address, are super forgiving, very long, and feel excellent.  They might be the clubs to finally knock my original AP1s out of the bag, we'll see.  I hate hate hate the sole lasering, but they're so good to hit I might have to get over it.

Driving iron was my thought so I ordered a 3 iron only. It just arrived today, and it looks great from address... Can't wait to test it out, but I will definitely put a Rocket Tour Skinny Stick on it when it's not in use... It's fugly for sure!
