Believe me these felt as soft on the face as any Japanese Irons Iíve hit!!

And the F8* Driver is the real deal too.... butter soft feeling with very good numbers!

I didnít Pic the sheet up with numbers, but from memory all was good
5 iron was around 185
9 Irons was around 140
7 Irons was on the numbers too... I had all lofts increased( plus loft ie PW 45* ) by 1*

I get the concept but subtle tweaks to posture and setup are part of the feel process for me...seems robotical to me...

Embrace the fear ...Brother!

No seriously Iíve been on board with the idea from the first time I heard, and like you Iíve never wanted try for the fear of liking the Concept.... but believe me,if you have good club head speed, youíll love the results, just seems like cheating slightly!!

I haven't tried one length yet, but wouldn't mind. Can't be bad hitting a longe iron more consistently due to shorte length shafts, right? There are actually 2 things that worry me though:
1.) I heard height on the long irons is an issue
2.) Short irons that are "longer" length

I think I would go a slightly different route if the long irons would work. I would have one length irons from 7 and up. Wedges through 8 iron would be traditional lengths.

Good idea !
I didnít find an issue on height in long irons on the F8ís due to the Tungsten and hollow cavity.

I like what Ari (formerly owner of Scratch) did on a set of Boyd Blades (now National Custom), modeling a set after something Bobby Jones played.  His 4i is 21.5* and normal length.  Then, he went with paired lengths: 5i/6i, 7i/8i, 9i/Pw.  5i is 25* and 4* gaps thereafter, I believe.  I could definitely wrap my head around doing that.

I suppose itís to minimize variables while maintaining some of the benefits of differentiated lengths.  Thatís my interest, anyway.  He suggests his gapping is excellent.

It would be fun to have him here.
