It's a tough job but somebody's gotta do it. As GOLF Magazine's chief equipment geek, I get to preview the latest and greatest gear months before its release date. It even means a friendly round, from time to time, with the brain trust behind the new toys.
I like what I saw—and felt. The black disks in midsize GC irons (for 10 to 20 handicappers) promote a balance of control with medium-high ball flight. This weight spread gives you the freedom for shot making with scoring clubs plus forgiveness in longer irons. Disks in the oversize head (GC.OS) are set more towards the heel and toe, for maximum forgiveness on mishaps. The GC.OS also has built-in draw bias to help higher handicappers.
