What are the specs on the shafts?
[/quote]

Suprisingly low launching and stable...

It's interesting to find a light weight iron shaft that is mid-high kick.   
Generally speaking, it seems like the two properties don't go together...

AF-505 #4 and #5   Will be placing the 4 & 5 in my SUS316 on the sidelines in an effort to give me added confidence for 180 to 200 yd shots.
Only bounced some balls off the face so far but these do not feel bad at all.   Very much forged feel. 
Not AF-302 soft but much much better than the previous multi-material models!   
Top line is not as thick as I thought and the offset is small. 
The back side does show at address but I think its a very confidence inspiring look from above.

Couple of comparo pics
Chrome finish is SUS316 , Satin is 505 both #5 irons

- Nearly identical face size and shape.
- Top line just a tad thicker in the 505 (maybe a mm or so )
- Offset is nearly identical
- Sole shape and width are totally different

From the bottom yes.   But the wider sole should help provide forgiveness when hitting especially for shallow sweepers like me.

Good to hear from you Carlo!!
My only worry is that the forgiveness is going to so good with the 505 that I am going to want the full set!! 
I love the feel of the SUS very much so i'd like to stick to this combo!!
Got Modus 125 S in these.

I predict you'll soon have the full set nobs...505 is the real deal missing link, looks like a players CB, feels like a players CB (as close as GI can anyway), plays almost sgi category.  Very surprised there's not more buzz...

Just got back from the range.   AF-505 #4 & #5 are fantastic!!    Feel wise not the same as the rest of my SUS316 set,  they are definitely softer feeling.   That was expected.
Having said that,   the forgiveness is at a whole new level.    The top view at address is not all that different but hitting the 505 #4 iron is easier than hitting the SUS316 #6 iron!!   
I have been using the Mizuno MP Fli Hi 4 iron this season and they are really good looking for a driving iron but the AF-505 are easier to hit.
Distance wise,  when I flush it,  the MP Fli Hi is probably a bit longer but the 505 4 iron comes very close with much better feel.   
For now, I'll stay with this combo set but I may consider a whole set in the future.   right now,  I am kind of addicted to the soft feel of the 316s.

This is the 4th crime of Angel model I'm playing. The Burning Angel is a low shaft and I'm gonna put this into the proceed ix.  Hopefully I get a bit more spin consistency. It's gonna look great with the IX and with a black red cadero.

Hey Art, how's this playing so far?
