WE TESTED: 4-W in Nippon N.S. Pro 100 steel shaft
COMPANY LINE: "Traditional short irons designed for shot control and playability. Oversize long irons have enhanced offset for higher, straighter flight. Aluminum bar in 3-, 4- and 5-irons reduces vibration and improves sound and feel."
Our Test Panel says: Love the look, feel and playability; rewards senses on wellstruck shots; clubhead eases through rough with no hang-ups; short irons have blade-like performance with cavity-back forgiveness; hits darts from 130 yards and in; chipping is fun hit it high, low, soft, hard, runners, spinners; distance and longiron help aren't its forte.
Excellent combination of skill enhancement, precision and game improvement. Tom Jennings
