i500

Our Review:

If you took the best characteristics of the company’s i200 and G700 irons and melded them, you might get the i500. The iron’s hollow structure and forged, heat-treated, high-strength steel face insert allow for five times the bending of the face at impact compared to a cast iron. This leads to a distance boost with a higher launch angle. A benefit of the thin face insert is saved weight, some of which is used in a tungsten toe weight to mitigate distance loss on mis-hits.
Specs: 7-iron: 30.5 degrees; PW: 45 degrees
Price: $1,300

Player Comments
  • low
    A nice crack coming off the face. The short clubs really launch, but you could keep it lower if you wanted to.
  • mid
    Great spin, but not at the sacrifice of a good launch angle.
