Finally installed the Roddio into the heads and threw on alternating red and blue Elite A50 grips.  Will be taking them out tomorrow for some course time.

1 round in and I am impressed.  Only complaint about the combo is trying to draw or fade, clubs just want to go straight.  Seemingly picked up a few yards, with the 9 iron going 160, consistently.
If memory serves from my prior set of Yam Tour irons the feel is very similar.  I would say also like the OnOff Forged, but a little firmer/denser.  The OnOff seemed too soft but the RMX are on the better side of that.
Rained overnight here, so greens were soft and receptive, which helped with the stopping power and even managed some spin back with the short irons and wedges.
Think my next round tomorrow will be from varying tees to maximize iron play time.

Played another round today.  Definitely liking the combo.  Greens were not as receptive today so getting a little more bounce and roll out.  Also, played a few 9 irons comparing the Yam/Roddio to the TS909/Tensei.

Still not able to turn the ball over on the longer irons much.  Feel on this set is as good as it gets, IMHO.

The one my wife let me take with me when I left the house...

A rotation of Srixon Z Star XV, Titleist Pro V1x, and Bridgestone Tour B XS, but predominantly the Bridgestone the last couple of days.

Gotcha. I’m down to just last years ProV1 and I am having paralysis by analysis over which balls to get next. The TP5 line is amazing in my book but want to try the new Bridgestones. I like they’re made in the USA.

I've largely played Bridgestone and Srixon for the last decade.  Some TaylorMade but not regularly at all.  The Titleist, I took advantage of the 4 for 3 sale and thought I'd give them a try.

I think if you like the TP5 you will also like the Bridgestone Tour B XS. They are somewhat similar but I feel the XS spins a bit more on all clubs. At least the previous version. Haven't played the new version yet.

These clubs are definitely holding their own as far as playing enjoyment.  Unseating the MB-247D and Meister M's.  Going to be some interesting rounds when I reshaft the Masda, TS909 and P2s to see what holds top spot.
