Flex wise, how do these stack up to your tour ad?  You mentioned these do not hook for you but that could be down to tip stiffness and bend profile as opposed to overall flex.
These are very stiff.  Can only generate a small bend with a strong waggle or practice swing.  I usually play SX on irons and SR to S on woods.  PRGR M46 work very well for me.   I just moved these to my PRGR iD Forged irons, but got rained out today.   The Tour AD I last tried were 85 weight.   I hooked many into the left bunker with them.   A heavier weight Tour AD might work for me.

Thanks.  Your deduction is consistent with the few reviews I found.

Last buy of 2018... a chrome plated copper underlay Orion Type S 50 wedge to complete an all chrome 4 pc Orion 46 to 60 wedge set.  Have a couple of raw type s heads as well but just wanted an all chrome set.

Got that exact same wedge in my bag. Very very good gap wedge.

I was sold on Orion since the first wedge a while.back.  I pay the Orions, grind studios and Pxgs now.  Modarts are in the spare cubby.

Got them for the shafts mainly but willing to give the heads a go. Size & offset (5i & PW shown) are similar to my ‘11 OnOff’s. Raining this weekend so won’t be able to hit them for a while. Will post my impressions soon.

Only review of the RC’s I found was on the Shidanikki site.
