Those VFoil's look SWEEEEEET. I've thought about picking a set of them up, but I've just never gotten around to it. Has anyone played/hit them and could give me some info?

The Vfoils Badds had in the bag before his new set have nothing to do with the ones you can buy of the shelves.
Go for the new ones MT Pro M if you want a real set of forged blades.
You can always go for a custom grind set from Don White #1 in grinding (2k set).
If I'm right, Badds used a couple different custom sets of Vfoils. The 1 set was based on the 1025M series with custom grinding. The 2nd set was based on the 675M series (or at least looked like the 675M), but somewhat different as the 3,4,5 irons in the retail set wasn't 100% forged (the back part was sealed to the forged set to allow for tungsten weighting).
I've owned both retail sets and kept the 1025M series as they were exceptional irons IMHO. You can get them fairly cheap if you can find/buy them used...maybe around $200-$300 in excellent condition.
Ocgolfer is correct though. Badds set is very different than what you can get retail. The grinding is very much to match his preferences and swing. With that said, I think the 1025M series was excellent retail set and the new MT Pro-M line is very exciting new addition.
