    I just received my iBlades with S400 AMT TI's. I've only hit a hand full of balls on the range and they felt incredible. These are the coolest shafts and the launch on the longer irons is just what I needed. Insanely smooth!



    I have my first round with them tomorrow and probably at least one more this weekend. Can't wait to put them in the bag!

    We don't have a Dicks or Edwin Watts or anything like that unless I want to drive an hour. Plus I have credits at the proshop. I won 600 dollars over the last two weeks, so in stead on putting my 150 dollars towards it, I only had to come out of pocket 500 for the irons and the new Vault putter.



    It takes about 4 days for shipping, so i figure that the order was placed two weeks ago yesterday, then maybe they will be here today... one can only hope.



    I don't know if being silver dot (thats what I was fit for by the local ping rep at a demo day) would slow things down being it is so much more upright than standard. and the Oslo in Platinum is not out anywhere it seems



    edit: looks like its out, but the major retailers only went with Slate i searched online and found a platinum at a place call golf and ski warehouse? hit both seasons i guess!

    I don't post much but hitting this iron on the range today gave me enough reason to login and post.



    This has to be one of the worst feeling irons I have ever hit. I know they aren't forged but was expecting them to atleast feel semi smooth, they are harsh and clicky.



    I play pretty harsh clubs, Taylormade RSI TPs, they are forged but were regarded as not feeling forged and feeing pretty harsh for forged irons... The iBlades make my Taylormades feel like Miura's.



    I was excited to hit them and was ready to purchase them, 3 swings in and I had to walk away. Unbelievably bad. Very sad as I love how they look!
    Everyones mileage will vary, I find these irons to be soft and smooth as butter...BB

    Yeah the static fitting is one thing but you really need to take them on course (or at least grass tees). I was always (20yrs) fit for blue yellow or green and now have s55's in red dot and have never felt more comfortable/accurate. I'm also 6'1.

    Good to know. I'm 6'. Seeing clubs trending more upright these days it makes me question my swing :-)

    update... My silver dots didn't work... sent them in to ping and had them reshafted with 6.0's (should have never strayed) and bent back to blue dot. huge difference

    Would love to know how that fitting went so so wrong.

    The shaft was never part of the fitting. That's on me as I wanted to try something new. Bad gator bad! Having a bad back, I could have been compensating for it by being more upright. But once I got them, it was immediate

    My lie angles are off on what they sent me. Got fit on blue dot head and needed 1.5 degrees flatter so went with red dot. Seemed upright to me especially shorts irons so got the lie angle checked on my 7 iron and it's only about .80 degrees flatter from blue. They are basically black dot lie angle. Struggling with hitting shorts irons left, to me looks like face is pointing left.

    Loving my irons so far. Only regret is that I wish I got the 3 iron too. Got the glides to match and just saw the new crossovers. Looks like a perfect fit.

    Picked up a set of these a few months ago with Steelfibers. So far i love them! Not really a true blade, but probably for the better for me.
