We tested: 4-GW in Graphite Design YS graphite shaft. Shaft length/loft (6-iron): 37.5"/28.5°
Company line: "A three-piece polymer topline allows 13 grams to be redistributed lower in the heel and toe, for a lower CG, higher MOI, higher launch and more accuracy. The wide sole has a chamfer relief in the center section to limit turf contact."
Voted Best for Accuracy
Our Test Panel Says:
PROS: Tops for accuracy in the test; wonderful balance of help on mis-hits while still hitting it where you want it, not where it's programmed; feel is a strong suit, impact is pure, crisp and smooth; offset head is not so obtrusive; nice, balanced feel on chips; S9 has a very clean look for a max game-improvement club; consistent, repeatable distances on solid strikes; oval aid on the face helps to line up.
CONS: Generous, but not as forgiving as some pre-programmed competitors; mis-hits are less kind to distance than direction.
"Perfect clubs for high handicappers." Bud Adler
