From Golf Magazine (ClubTest, May 2008)

We tested: 3-PW in Rifle Project X Flighted steel shaft. Shaft length/loft (6-iron): 37.25"/31°

Company line: "Forged from 1020 mild carbon steel, for the ultimate in soft feel. The U-grooves provide spin and distance control. Progressive "muscle cavity" height— thinnest in 3-iron, thickest in PW— creates a descending weight concentration so the greatest amount of feel and control are in the short irons."

Our Test Panel Says:
PROS: Instantaneous feedback— shots struck on the sweet spot stimulate the senses; a beautiful iron for the precise player; capable performers from a variety of conditions; wonderful balance; better players will be magical with these; par savers for sure on chip shots; incredibly responsive clubs; good contact feels like the ball sinks into the club and stays on the face.

CONS: Least-forgiving iron tested; severely punishes wobbly swings; shortest carry distance on center hits.

"An exacting, accurate set geared for the pure ballstriker." — Barry Fasenmyer (4)
