It just looks like a piece of metal forged into a blade .. Not much technology?

Super sexy blades. The satin finish is yummeh. I wonder if they have a version of this made for a 28 handicapper......heeheehee

Very classic looking clubs. Simplistic approach and not chunky like others out there. But, they don't look very forgiving. I've also head that fourteen tends to make clubs which favour the low-mid handicappers, but not the high handicappers.

@techno: in fact the opposite mate. The irons are forgiving, this seems like their first true players iron!

Hmmm... "forgiving" and "true players iron" are at opposing ends of my golfing dictionary.

IMHO there is nothing revolutionary about this set of irons. its an open model thats done to death. the only distinction is the brand that's stuck on the irons.

there is no original design element or modification to the sole to make it different from other predecessor which i am sure if you look carefully you will find resemblance to many of the blades out there.

not too long ago i had the privilege to try out a blade set which was designed by one of the top club designers in the OEM market. this include the Yamaha, Tourstage, Callaway Legacy, PRGR and Epon range...

here's how a cavity can masquerade as a blade. close up in your hands, its even better looking. i thought it look busy in the photo but its not when you look at it at set up or address. the finishing employs both chrome and satin together and thats really difficult to do with this design. no wonder its a limited edition to showcase their design and finishing capabilities and you will not find pros using them cos they have to pay for them.





on the subject of playability, i have seen too many golfers who plays what their idol plays, enough said, its their choice to scratch the left ear with the left hand or the right hand.

PS we do not sell the above brand and the Epon Persona started as s set of irons that was designed to test all the perimeters of manufacturing and was available only for Endo employees. the world heard about them and due to pressure, they were "forced" to make 500 sets.
