I read reviews saying this club tended to hit the ball further, so I picked up a 20 degree to use as a driving iron and for approaches on reachable par 5's. Took a while to learn how to hit it, but now that I've got it down I am just launching this baby off the tee and from better lies in the fairway/rough. I'm not a particularly long hitter (about 255 carry with the driver), but I'm able to carry this thing a good 230, even off the deck. The smaller profile also lets me work the ball in either direction and I feel comfortable hitting knockdowns with it when I want to bridge the gap between my regular 3 iron and a full swing with the 9031. Hits the ball with a bit lower, more penetrating trajectory, which is good for me since I tend to be a high ball hitter and this club has become a real weapon for me under windy conditions. Buyer beware though, not the most forgiving club, so you better put a good swing on it.
Bottom line - This is as good or better than any other brand name utility club I've played, and at the current price it is an absolute steal.
great design aesthetics
penetrating ball flight / good wind club
Cons:not the most forgiving
better hybrids out of the rough
seems to play stronger than the loft
