Bro, me not too sure if this set is forged.

But the way this salesman is going, I'd say dun buy from him.
No product knowledge and seemingly trying to push sales. Evil or Very Mad

this is a new term...soft cast..they are inventive aren't they.

these irons are not easy to bend. best you get the right lie angle. i know they come standard, flat and upright.

btw the type of material they use will determine how much it can be bend. again depending on the chroming quality, there may be permanent scarring.

Do some research on the internet before you go look around. Most forge irons have the forged word engrave on it.

When you can see the word "forged" engrave onto it. That will be it.
All else, check specs.

TP B is not forged for sure. Forged irons are stated on them, except for some tourstage irons like the x blade cb which are forged but not stated.

think you have a R9 Forged (not TP), and a R9 TP Forged (only avail in Japan market)... R9 TP B is not forged..

disclaimer: i may be wrong, but a little googling will go a loong way

It is soft cast, not forged. However people wanna say it feels soft, it is still not as soft as forged iron.

It can be bend, but it will be a painful process. I am sure DGman can do it, but please get it to him first thing in the morning. Any later, when his energy is drained, will be charged extra!
