Have to agree with the author of the marketing write up.  705 is their flagship product....so easy, consistent and powerful...they transform my iron game from decent/shortish but consistent to STRONG!   

Last weekend I had 175 into a strong wind to an elevated green,,,long was dead and had to carry a mound over false front...never had that shot...prolly punch a 5w and try to be front of green...I pulled 5i and hit a a piercing baby draw and the wind took it 2 feet right of the hole...4 feet of rollout...birdie...

Can't do that with any other 5i I've carried...at least not very frequently...the 49* aw is just so good...the runners...the 40/60...real weapon out of the sand...anytime I need a carry with precision...

I actually just bought a set 2 days ago. Getting built next week. Havenít seen them in the flesh but fitter convinced me to go for it after I hit the 705ís and loved them.

I actually had my heart set on the 505ís after having played the 502ís for so many years but didnít give me what I was looking for in terms of feel and distance. Fitter handed me the 705ís and it was instant love affair.

Just guessing that the limited edition blacks wonít play any softer or differently and looking forward to playing them.

What's your swing speed and flight? What shaft you go with?

I was in and out of so many different shafts that Iím embarrassed to say Iíve forgotten which shaft but will let you guys know when I get them delivered. Just know it was black😂

Swing speed with driver is in the range of 97-102 last I checked which was a few years ago.

My flight tends to be a bit low, but the 705ís has me hitting a 6 iron with a very nice and high trajectory.

My strength has always been my iron game, partially due to my Epons. I have pro like stats for GIR but chip like a complete NOOB!😬

Our swing speed is close. I might be a little faster. My fitter is still looking to see if he can get them.

👍

I know theyíre limited, just unsure of how limited. I know with the blues, they indicated 500 sets but who knows.

I went back to the 705 after putting my grail shaft in the 505s and falling in like ve with them...505 is definitely an awesome iron head...it will get its due...it's up there in the pantheon of epon heads imo..almost as long as the 705, better feeling by just a bit...way more player looking but the 705 just performs...my home track is longish...6870 at sea level from the blues...I have a lot of 170-175 yard shots into greens...I'm much more accurate with a 5i than a ute...I can play a fairly big boy course like a big boy...not like a biyatusuch...

these are usa exclusive models. i tried to get them but couldn't and im an Epon rep.
golf is so crazy ive only played 1 round this year. im in a phase where i need to do a reset and just
start playing again......next year that is.

the blacks look amazing but trust me after a couple of rounds they will look not so good. the finish is a matte black ion
and from experience they will fade on the hitting spots. for some people no biggie but if your like me every scratch and faded
portion will be an eyesore.

ive got no clubs in the bag at the moment . sold my venerable 705. im shifting into the 505 next year. but thats another story

No clubs in the bag? Only one round for the year??!!🤪🔫

I will be able to tell you if they wear in a few weeks after I get mine this wk but winter weather wonít allow me to play much as of now. I will be on a simulator a couple times a wk and guys golf trip to Bahamas in a few weeks so that should be a good test.

All that being said, Iím not all that anal about keeping my clubs pristine. When I first got my 502ís, i just played them as they should be played. Some bag chatter over the years but I always viewed any scratches or dings as more like war wounds that told a certain story.

Wondering whether other black faced irons out there are also ion plated or otherwise and might be my own personal view on Epon but something tells me with the quality of their club making, this may not be an issue.
