Pros: Forgiving, very long, good feel, visually appealing...

Cons: *none*

The TaylorMade R9 irons are fantastic clubs.  Compared to other irons I have owned/used, they are easily the longest.  I realize length is not as important as accuracy in iron play, but you'll get both with the R9!  I am 1 club longer than with my last set up, TaylorMade Tour Burners, and am hitting more greens than ever because of the added forgiveness.  The R9's come with Condition of Competition grooves, meaning they are legal for USGA play.  I have not noticed any drop off in spin or holding greens with shots because of the v-grooves.  The R9's have a midsize head with very modest offset, exactly what I was looking for.  I did not want a clunky looking iron.  The R9's look great, the black cavity with badging is very appealing.  I went with the Dynamic Gold X100 shafts in these.  These shafts are heavy and promote a low trajectory, basically like rebar.  The "standard" shaft in these is the KBS, which is slightly softer and lighter than DG, and will help get the ball in the air a little more.  Take time to get the correct shaft for you and your swing, and I think you'll be very pleased with the R9 irons.
