The chunky heads give an immediate impression that these irons should be easy to hit. Looking down on them getting ready to wind up they don't look too bulky and hard to control. A low, deep centre of gravity creates a large hitting area for all round playability. So for mid or high handicappers the forgiving nature should really help.
