It's for: Mid- or high-handicappers
Karl Clausen, Principal Design Engineer: "Our goal is to create an easy-to-hit set for slower and moderate swing speed golfers that provides equal distance gaps between clubs and promotes improved consistency and accuracy. Utility metals and hybrid irons get shots airborne effortlessly for max distance. Short irons provide superior accuracy."
How it works: Call it a sign of the times. The Transition-S combines five "nontraditional" irons with three standard ones. Low-profile utility clubs (which replace the 3- to 5-irons) have weight low and rearward toward the heel for added "help." The hybrid mid-irons (6 and 7) have more draw bias than in the previous Transition-S. The hollow construction contributes to increased MOI. Cavity-back short irons (8 to PW) have wide soles plus a two-piece silicone insert to control vibration. A harder silicone layer rests against the face while a softer piece is visible in the cavity. Updates include a gap wedge (optional) and custom options for length, shaft, grip or set makeup.
