Good but not great
January 6, 2015
After months of contemplating, I finally snagged these babies here during the 20% holiday sale.
Got these in stiff and in orange (hello Rickie.)
At first glance, the bottoms of these really look like rocketbladez. The chrome used, the font style of the numbers - waaay too similar.
coming from nike covert (1.0) irons, these feel a bit softer and more consistent, whereas the coverts and the rocketbladez would have very different feel across irons - fron slotted long irons to more solid shorter irons.
Distance-wise, it's the same as my coverts and rocketbladez and this is a good thing. Better feel plus equal distance is a big plus for me here.
I do think that the softer feel comes from softer materials, and it showed after a few rounds. The chrome bottom of the club does not hold up well, and is scratched like anything. The face of the club also gets scratched easily (specially with mishits.)
Over-all, it's not a world beater, but it's a VERY good set for it's price, and more charming in real life than in pictures.
distance and feel.
nice slightly bigger than average grip.
Cons:softer finish = easily scratched
at par with rocketbladez and covert - nothing sets this apart.
