Those look to be forged. I love the lack of offset! Did you get a second mortgage for those?

Hey, Guys, Thanks.

I must point out that the contrast between the groove area and the heel and toe areas is not as it appears in the pics. When I considered the Edels, I did not like the contrast on the Edel Website pics -- the grooved area appeared grey.  When you hold them in your hands or at address, they appear far different -- more like the satin chrome.

The lofts, in 5-PW, are 27, 30, 33, 37, 41, 45. My wedges are 50, 55, 60.

My current gamers are Miura PP-9003. Obvious differences?

Miura Lofts are 25, 28, 32, 36, 40, 45

The Miuras have more of a square toe, more offset, a slightly thinner top line, and less bounce (glide).

The bounce numbers on the Edels are 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 (5-PW)

The bounce numbers on the MIura are  3,   4,   6,   7,   9,  11 (5-PW)

The sole width  appear similar on both irons until you see the grinding on the trailing edge of the Edels that effectively thins the sole, and further grinding adds bounce.

For those unfamiliar with Edel, they are custom irons (like Miura, Edel fits the club to you as to shaft, length, swing weight, loft, lie, etc.) with a higher bounce than most for better club-turf interaction (more forgiveness and less wear and tear on the body).

From Edel:

"Turf interaction is the most critical determinant of an iron's playability. Edel irons are fitted to precisely match the angle of attack created by each individual golf swing. The combination of the proper grind, bounce angle, weight, and shaft creates more solid and consistent ball striking. Edel irons allow an unparalleled level of fitting and customization, and are hand built to match every unique attribute of a player's golf swing. Premium forged from 304 stainless steel for optimal feel and consistency

  • Premium forged from 304 stainless steel for optimal feel
  • CNC machined cavity, face and grooves for optimal consistency
  • Hand ground to appropriate bounce with desired heel, toe and trail relief
  • Variable face thickness progresses through set for optimal feel and forgiveness
  • Toe/Heel weighted for increased stability larger sweet spot
  • Minimal progressive offset "

Enjoy those stix my friend!

Thanks, looking forward to hitting them in 98 deg weather... not.

May wait 'till morning.

Those look to be forged. I love the lack of offset! Did you get a second mortgage for those?

They are forged and $50/club less than the Miuras. Or put another way, when one compares a Callaway Apex 5-PW with Recoil 660/880 that is not balanced to you (D0) one is paying $150 more for the Edels with more specific specs and the Recoil 95 shaft.  About 7 years ago, I received a quote for a fitting from a somewhat famous Mizuno account with Mizuno Exsar shafts - the price was similar to the Edels.

So yes, expensive in pure dollar terms, but when you buy right, you don't need to buy again ... for several years. And that represents substantial savings...

Great looking clubs, enjoy!

Appreciate it!

I've made substantial progress on my first keys... It takes time, video and instruction to get rid of 10 years of relative futility.

I've also made progress with different imagery and focus on what the hands are doing... some odd imagery to snap me out of the old picture.

Moving forward...

And if you haven't guessed, the "Welcome Back My Friends to the Show that Never Ends" alludes to the fact that from '98-2008, I was a club 'ho ... big club ho addiction.  Must have had a putter every other month, 3 iron sets a year, wedges 4X a year, and fairway woods? Always trying to find the magic ... that did not exist in a club.

It stopped from the end of 2008 'till late 2011  when I bought the Miuras, and my junkie, the club maker, got me into TaylorMade -- that was a big mistake -- didn't work for me. Figured it out, and went back to the tried and true - Edel Putter - 5 years old, Edel Wedges - 16 months and counting, Bobby Jones Fairways for 16 months, Bobby Jones hybrids for the most part since 2007. Went to Miura irons, and then Edel brought out his afterwards .... so 3 years  later, went with Edel. Hopefully, won't add anything unless it's a Driver, but the Bobby Jones Blackbird is growing on me....

When I do buy now, golf clubs are tools to help you to your goals. How you wield the tools is more important... But nevertheless, when you purchase a fitted club, it's time to celebrate!

    • This is the interesting question.  If he hadn't been drinking, there should be no reason to refuse the breathalyzer.   Surely he's not stupid enough to tell a boldfaced lie in his statement that will easily be refuted.
    • Number one, I had no idea there was a free rules of golf app. Do you have to be a member of the USGA? Because i'm Canadian, and Golf Canada doesn't give us free anything besides a crappy quarterly magazine. I didn't have a current rules book with me, as I was forced out of the game for almost 3 years due to a workplace injury. I encountered a situation that had never happened to me before and asked a simple question. 
    • Hmm, where have I heard that a DUI arrest is a medical issue before? Oh yeah, when his agent was arrested for DUI: http://www.golf.com/tour-and-news/tiger-woods-agent-mark-steinberg-arrested-drunken-driving-charges Color me skeptical. Not that it really matters. A DUI for an "unexpected reaction" to medication, which probably has a warning on it not to drive when taking it, is just as serious as a DUI for alcohol. If he's going through personal issues, I hope he sorts through them. But he shouldn't get a free pass because alcohol was not involved.
    • I figured it was meds, and while it still bothers me, i'm not as dissapointed as I was when I thought it was alcohol, just because I know how meds can affect you without even realizing it. I went through third degree burns to my left leg, and I did the same thing as him (though I wasn't caught or charged) for a few days thinking I was fine, before once becoming suddenly very tired at the wheel, I mean nodding off like a heroin addict. I had to pull into a parking lot and call some friends to come pick up me and my truck. I didn't drive again until I was off the meds. But it was a reaction I wasn't expecting. I had been tired throughout the ordeal after my surgeries, but I thought it was just my body telling me I needed rest. I had no experience with pain meds, or the anti-anxiety (Clonazepam or some such drug) meds they gave me after my workplace accident, and didn't know how they were affecting me.    I'm not defending Tiger, just like i'm not defending what I did. Had I been caught, I would have rightly been charged, just like Tiger.    And if you think driving at 3am post-surgery when you've slept most of the day and can't sleep at night is something out of the ordinary, I don't know what to tell you. I still go for a drive in the middle of the night when I can't sleep sometimes.  And in Tigers case, he is apparently also a known insomniac. 
    • Uhhhh…? You can have a different reaction weeks into a set drug regimen. Plenty of other factors can change. Dosage. Lack of sleep. Diet. The specific times you take things. I don't much care either way (he should not drive impaired - that puts others in danger) as it's off-course stuff, but I still like facts and dislike speculation.
