They are pretty ugly for a better players iron.

Hmm... I thought they looked pretty nice myself, but aesthetics are always very subjective.

Luckily for you, they're already sold out, so any temptation is gone, haha.

I've always thought less is more when it comes to iron designs, with a good example being Mizuno's MP-4 irons, or Titleist's and Cleveland's irons. I do like Wilson Staff irons too (their FG Tour 100 irons are a bit more flashy but they are gorgeous). With those Nike irons, it looks like there are three different finishes on the back; looks kind of sloppy, IMO.

I think they were going for a garish "prototype" sorta look. Right rough and angular. Then again, Rory and Tiger aren't exactly industrial designers. ;-)
