From Golf Magazine ClubTest 2012 (April, 2012)

Category: Max Game-Improvement Irons
Price: $1,299, graphite (4-5) + steel (6-PW); $1,399, graphite

WE TESTED: 4, 5 with Matrix Program 55 graphite shafts and 6-SW with FST KBS Satin 90 steel shafts
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: Each iron has a hollow metalwood construction with a 17-4 stainless steel body and light, lively 455 Carpenter steel face to increase ball speed. Tungsten weight in the heel and toe (15 grams each) increases the club’s MOI for added forgiveness. The 4 and 5 are “Rescue-like” whereas the 6-SW are more traditional irons.

OUR TESTERS SAY: Easy to hit sticks that get the ball up quickly from all lies.

PROS
PLAYABILITY: High, straight ball flight; good option for slow swingers with a sweeping swing; club cuts through rough and gets the ball out with ease.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Plenty of perimeter-weighted power; masks all but the most egregious swing errors; promotes straight shots.
DISTANCE CONTROL: A few guys are 5-7 yards longer on center hits versus their own; minimal distance loss on mis-hits.
FEEL: Stable head feel through impact; light and easy to swing; plenty of shock absorption on off-center hits.
LOOK: Two-tone face frames the ball; massive face; attractive green accents.

CONS
Muted feel—misses are too similar to center hits; a few guys get shorter carry than normal; hybrid-like long irons don’t appeal to everyone’s eye.
