I have also heard that they are pretty forgiving for a forged cb which is good because honestly I have no business playing players irons, but I don't really have any business playing any irons lol. Glad to hear a positive review from someone who has a good amount of experience with them.
What shafts did you use with them?
I have always played True Temper S300 in the past. I ordered this set with the True Temper Dynalite Gold SL w/sensicore in the X100 and have been very pleased with them. They were on sale at the time, I think I was around $340 all in on the set, a great deal overall. I have had many others hit the irons at the range and they have been very impressed with the feel of the irons. Go for it, you will not be disappointed. If you are a higher handicap golfer, you may want more offset in your lower irons and may want to consider one of the other sets they offer with more offset.
FYI, if you are trying to save some bucks, prior to ordering the set I am playing with I had played with a set with the FST Pro 115 shafts and thought they were pretty nice. On iron shafts, I am of the belief that the shaft (other than length and weight), will make little difference in the overall performance. (see youtube Mark Crossfield Golf Shaft Flex Lesson 3). JMO
