I predict these will be the 2nd most successful epon irons of recent years.  503 was good for a wide range of players.  I have a feeling this version will be better for both the single digit and 10-15 cappers...

Took a look at the link again and the 905 looks sexxxxxy as hell.  Wouldn't mind getting one in a 2i when it comes out.

I had another look too, and the 505 still looks pants. The 155i driver, from the sole perspective looks great though. A little bulbous at address but I do like the matt grey finish.

yeah as an Epon fan, these looks terrible. I rather go 705 than these. the screws are so bad looking. Honestly speaking, i doubt it can beat PXG when it comes to screws.

505 is coming soon!  Can't wait, couldnt come at a better time, the 705s may have to go to the bench.  I loved the distence at first but having problems these days with control...pure shots are outrageously long...

Roddio i10s going in the 505, looking forward to hitting 4i again.  Going for more control with this set and I haven't found a more consistent graphite shaft.  These sound perfect, slightly less offset than 503, 1 piece forging, slightly thinner top line but same wideish sole...awefully thin face male me very very curious on how these feel

I have played the 213 exclusively in competition (either club events or $ matches) for the past 5/6 years...obviously I horse around with many other wedge sets but I love the 213.  Have gone through 2 sets...I am seriously considering picking up the tour spin wedge!  It looks fantastic!  Am wondering if the tech will improve my spin and get the same forgiveness of the 213?  How could I go wrong?

Mags, u getting the 505?

No mate. Iím sticking to 303. Iím a high handicapper but I just couldnít get away from the 303. Believe me I tried so many and 303 is still the king. Pxg came closest, at first it edge it but after a while, the performance was similar so I sold it.

The screws on the 505 bugs me. It looks really ugly. Iím waiting for 305 and will definitely get the 305 once it is out. I will consider getting the wedges just deciding on either going to 50-56-60 or sticking to 50-54-58.

Looks like fitting heads are now available in the shops in Japan.
I too thought the bug eye look of the screws were ugly, but somehow are growing on me!!
May need to consider these as my next set of irons.  BTW you may all know this already but the screws are not removable according to Eponís website.

Overall size looks slightly smaller than 503 but just a hair thicker top line and sole width.  Looks really forgiving.    Left pic is the 505 in this link.

Wow, those look awesome!  Exactly what I'm looking for!  They remind me of the '14-'15 onoff forged...nice and chunky but still a player profile...love the smaller offset!  A one piece forging?  These are gonna be sick!
