This is probably the classiest looking forged iron out there - the look alone is sure to entice plenty potential buyers. But you'll have to be sure of your own ability to swing these with success. The wider sole has a rounded leading edge allowing the club to glide through the turf to help when striking is not spot on. The forging process should give this a responsive feel to help judging distances.
