Quality: 

These are very solid looking and feeling clubs. Quality is excellent.

Pros: 

These irons are easy to strike. The ball flies very straight when hit on almost any part of the club face. They have almost completely eliminated my fade. I often find myself ending up left of target. I like the way they get the ball airborn. I see higher flights out of my 4 and 5 irons.

Cons: 

The only dislike is that the distances seem to be lower. I am having to adjust my thoughts to use the proper club to cover the distance. Something else I am getting used to (but will with time) is that they seem a little heavier. That, and the offset are causing me to have some fat hits. I am already starting to overcome that now as my swing gets more confident and sweeter. The clubs have a FAT appearance when at address. It only took a short time to get over that.

Summary: 

I would reccomend these irons to anyone looking to straighten out a fade. Hookers may not like them though. I have had to re-calculate my club choices from 125 yards out due to the apparent reduction in distance. As I start swinging with more confidence, that may change.
