Has anyone have any experience with these? Look really nice. How compact are they? I have titleist 710cb and am wondering how the size compares.

Titleist have some compact irons, I don't know side by side but I find the toplines to be pretty thin and the cavity isn't visible on any of them. There's very little offset, which I like, and good turf interaction.

They are pretty forgiving on thin hits, very accurate and feel great on pure hits. I really like the traditional lofts and even bent the PW to 48, and I can hit the 3 iron very nicely.

I highly recommend them if you're looking for a good component head. I got KBS C tapers in mine and had them assembled for 80$ an iron, but the shaft and grip I picked would cost upwards of $1,000 from Mizuno or Titleist. They really work nicely for me and I have no desire to change irons. I like the way the company sets up so you can have any specs and components you want, it really saves money over custom ordering from other companies if you know what you want.

I've read great reviews about these clubs. I've always liked the looks of "players" clubs, but didn't want to give up that much forgiveness just for the looks. It seems the TE's might be a great combination of both. I have a draw/hook bias, so I think I may also like the minimal offsets in these. I've ordered the components to build a 7 iron TE. If I like it over my current RAZRX's, I'll consider building a full set. Since I haven't been able to hit balls outside for quite some time now, this $75 purchase at least has me looking forward to something golf related /:

I ended up ordering a full set of Maltby TE forged irons (4 thru GW). I have to say that I am very happy that I did. The irons look great. They have a very thin top line and sole. I'm not sure if aesthetics of a club can impact how well we play, but if it does, these definitely help me. While the clubs are 2* or 3* weaker than my RAXRX's, I hit them about the same distance. I think part of that is the fact that I got fitted for shafts, as opposed to the uniflex shaft that the Callaway's have. While hitting the same carry distances, I hit the ball much higher and am finding that I can hold greens much better now. Off center hits are about as forgiving as my other clubs. Center hits, though, feel really good!! You can tell when you've hit the center of the club face. The other thing that I've found is that it's much easier to work these clubs. I struggled to change my ball flight with the RAZRX's. With the TE's, I now have a bit of confidence that I can shape the ball when I need to. I guess that's a product of having thinner soles... I've played 8 official rounds so far this year, and 5 of them have/will be counting toward my handicap. I hope that is because I've improved my swing, but can't discount that maybe a part of it is a result of these clubs. Whatever it is, I can say that I have total confidence in the TE's. It was a whim to look at a component brand, but I am really glad I did. I saved money and have clubs that perform really well!

    • Good to have golfers from all over the planet here. See you around! Under the "How To..." drop down menu above, there are all kinds of things there you might want to scan through. How to create an "avatar" How to get "Achievements" (those little icons that show up at the bottom of your posts) How to quote people or other sources How to embed video. Just lots of the details about how things get done here. Since you're interested in instruction, don't miss the "Info...Instructional Content" link in the menu above. Also linked here below. That'll give you a sense of some of the top instruction threads that have been created here in the past. Lastly, you mentioned that there are lots of "tips" here- and you'll quickly find that this site does not promote the idea of hunting the internet for "tips." This site is all about finding the correct priority for fixing a swing (not always easy for us golfers to know) and then applying practice techniques to address that one thing. Then move on to the next priority. I'm not saying that I think you are one of these "tip-hunters", but since you mentioned the word, I just wanted to put it out there that there are lots of testimonies here about the futile search for "tips" on the internet and not improving much as a result of going from one tip to another.  Anyway, welcome! Here's the thread I mentioned above.  
    • Winston Salem only carries balls. The other stores are at least 1.5 hours away.
    • I agree.... my mechanics are to blame much more than my composure, as is the case with the majority of us.  If you read my comment in context of the previous comments, you'll see I wasn't claiming composure>physical at all. 
    • Revealing thread, there are varying "definitions" of what's mental and what's physical. I would have called game planning, green reading and just practicing effectively mental, along with just maintaining composure/managing pressure/stress. What's the essential difference between someone who just mindlessly bashes ball after ball at the range vs someone who practices with purpose? "The way I look at it in golf is that the mental game is a mechanism for fulfilling physical potential. Physical potential being a function of natural ability and effort put in through practice, instruction, conditioning, etc. Physical potential won’t automatically be transferred to the golf course in the form of performance. That is where a strong mental game steps in and allows the body to perform the tasks it has already been trained to do. In other words, the mental game bridges physical potential and physical performance. When faced with consequence on the golf course, the physical motion the body already knows how to perform can be hindered by doubt, fear, and anxiety. Our mind and body know how to physically execute the shot, and the mental game is required to protect that ability by warding off the potential doubt, fear or anxiety."
    • Today I came across to this video and just wanted to share it with you guys Her swing looks great!
