Thinking about the black P790 or black AP3. Does anyone have pics of how these are wearing after some good use on them?

    That guy seems to enjoy the toe. I'd want to have a quarter sized sweet spot on my irons before I buy a black set. Let's just say that. I don't understand the point TBH.

    Came very close to going with the black 790s but decided to go chrome because I was afraid of this. Definitely not worth the upcharge.

    At least when buying used, you know the exact amount of wear.

    Unless they are DBM like Cobra and Maltby that’s exactly what’s gonna happen. Oh, and that cat needs to bend his irons 2 degrees more upright! BB

    How do you know? Contact out towards the toe doesn't necessarily indicate a lie problem. What am I missing?

    Because a miss out near toe indicates the swing is too steep or over the top. Bending the clubs upright will bring strike pattern towards center. Opposite is true is swing is too flat, strikes will be near the heel. Flattening the will move them towards the center.

    Not irons, but I have hit my Ping Glide 2.0 stealth wedges a ton on the range and the course and they still look fantastic. I wish ping would do some i500 stealth irons; I would be all over them.

    Or i210’s

    This is how my black Srixon Z 745's looks after about 3 seasons of play. Should be around 270-300 round in those heads.
