These are Shinagawa grinds.  Same as the  Seven x Shinagawa MBs
  Identical shape except for the back face. I assume they play similar as well. 
I like the look of both.

ive hit a 6 iron  for a few balls  at the range with  a dgs200 , felt  like modart .I  didn't like the head shape tho.
 feel was  really nice considering the shaft  cant remember much about  it , just kinda dull  but nice and a bit more  offset than I liked .  they didn't suit my eye tho  and were very exxy..

I don't have this particular set but I do have the Closer CB. I also have a single Closer MB 7I which I bought as a precursor to the CB.  For a MB, its very forgiving.  The closer range is fantastic and I'd suggest you consider the Closer MB as well.  Copper underlay so its solid and firm but not mushy soft.  You'll know where you impact the face.

No comments on the original H X T I know but what the heck....

Thanks, I was looking at the Closer as well, but they look to have a lot of offset.  I don't need any more irons, but these are tempting.

No no no... There is offset but not much.. If you want near straight neck, look at the A-Grind R1CB or MB..

The R1s are certainly on my list!
