Our Review:

Producing ball speed with a towering launch in an iron that feels good and looks great is fairly complicated. To increase ball speed, the “speed bridge” structure in the back cavity accommodates a flexible through-slot, and a thinner face than the M6 has more flex and saves up to six grams.

  • mid
    I like the overall proportions of it. Not too intimidating or too bulky. Strikes a nice balance
