Thanks for the good wishes! Ironically I actually hit my first birdie ever today on a par 3 that was about 100yds . However to be fair I've had many potential birdie putts before, and today's birdies (had several) were more of a result of my putting improvements than anything else. I've always that found I could just feel out those weird approach shots with my SW PW or 9 by manipulating my swing, my short(er) game has actually usually been the strongest for me. I have also never hit my PW 140 yds, even with these strong lofts. I've gained about 1 club distance with most of my irons, maybe half or less with my 9 and PW. The biggest benefit I've seen so far is a smaller gap between clubs, as well as consistency in shots.
The two biggest adjustments I've had to make with these irons are their length(of shaft), and how they look at address. I'll admit these look kinda funny at address, and I'm still getting used to aligning them. I'll probably start a thread about these irons after I've played a little more with them, but I am liking these clubs. They no doubt have some benefits for us high handicappers, but to be honest I think the most important gains are not the ones they are advertising. I guess increasing your distance sells better than increasing your consistency...

Now how much will you appreciate the fact that your PW travels 140yards.. These Game Improvement Irons can be very decieving and will not always help you where it counts (@100yards)
But like I said... Good Luck and I hope you hit em Long(when needed) and straight!
