Product: Epon AF-Tour MC irons

Pitch: From Epon: "A first from ENDO manufacturing. This fully hollow-body forged design utilizing stronger lofts screams maximum ball speeds and distance! A super low and deep CG combined with a super wide sole makes this the most forgiving iron in the EPON line up. A progressive body design lends itself to more traditional looking short irons. This particular model is a Limited Edition for 2019 (2000 sets worldwide)."

Our take on Epon AF-Tour MC irons

When you think of Epon you think of premium forged blades, players irons, and wedges. I don't think many people think of super game improvement irons, but Epon might be changing a few minds with the new AF-Tour MC. The AF-Tour MC is a limited-edition model that is aimed for the higher handicap player who demands great feel and very high end-craftsmanship.

These irons provide tons of forgiveness and ball speed while still offering a soft forged feel. Now the look and loft of the irons are not going to appeal to the low handicap player or purist, but that is not who they are aimed at. These are meant to launch it high, straight, and very long!

    I usually like epon, but man those are strong lofts. The numbers on the bottom should be different.

    My dad was one of the first to grab a set. He’s like 160yds with a driver and the 6i gets him almost that far.
    You need to ignore the number but they’re really good for what they are; high and straight ball launchers. If my wife tries them I imagine she’d ask for a set.
