APPLY NOW! Edel SMS Iron Testing! 3 Testers Needed!

3. Current iron set? Srixon ZX 5/7 combo 
4. Why do you want to test Edel's SMS irons? I tried the SMS wedge on the range last week and loved it.  A full set of irons to dial in shot shape vs. changing my swing to get desired ball flight is the main reason.  The movable weight can help me hit the ball straighter and more accurately instead of having different shot shapes for longer vs. shorter irons.    
5. Are you willing to do an in-depth written review, with high quality photos, and future updates? Yes, we got 3+ pages on WRX reviewing socks. Imagine what I can do reviewing a set of irons.

4. Why do you want to test Edel's SMS irons?

Adjustable weight irons have always peaked my interest. The main reason is because of the way I can setup the set progression. Like most, I don't struggle with strike/direction with short irons. However, long irons are a different story certain days. Would love to be able to back up toe strikes with a heavy weight. Also, love the idea of being able to easily play with swing weight progression of the set

4. why do you want to test the edel irons - because I have played the sms wedges since they came out and I absolutely have never hit a better wedge.  I like my current irons. But if these are as good as the wedges - there’s room to gain.  
5. Are you willing to do an in depth review ?-  yes I can do a review including trackman data , pictures  and video , on course time as well as time on my range to known verified targets.

4. Got the opportunity to test SMS wedges a playing partner has, and was very impressed. I often test lots of different irons, and the ability to tailor weighting and cg to match player’s desired flight and tendencies is an intriguing concept.

5. I would be honored to write an in depth review including photos and on course impressions in varied conditions and lies, not just launch monitor data; although can provide that readily as well.

4. Why do you want to test Edel's SMS irons? I hit my Honmas beeter than any iron that I've played before, but the lofts are a bit strong so I have trouble holding hard greens. The SMS irons lookk like they would give me close to the same distance as the Honmas, but with more spin & control.

4. Why do you want to test Edel's SMS irons? The concept behind these irons and wedges to fine tune flight control in the irons is a game changer.  My fitter has been raving about these since they were released over the summer.  Could be the missing link for my game.

I was at Edel HQ a couple months back for the fitting of these before they launched, but didn’t have the $ to buy them yet. I’m an Edel “homer”: SMS wedges, and EAS 1.0 putter! 


I’m definitely willing to do a review, post consistently here, publish on social media, and have many, many pics!!!

4. Why do you want to test Edel's SMS irons? Two of my three "specialist" wedges are Edel SMS. I am a true believer in the Edel difference. I was an Edel wedge user for the past six years and quickly transitioned to SMS as they became available. I believe in the "tuneablility" to match my swing without having to have PGA Tour-type attention.   
5. Are you willing to do an in-depth written review, with high quality photos, and future updates? I am willing to provide an in-depth assessment of my current set of irons vs. Srixon ZX-7 irons, and the Edel SMS irons on the range and on the course. If selected, I will provide detailed, professional photographs which will include a mid-high handicap strike pattern with each iron (traditional) and the SMS irons in each of the weight positions using either foot powder or impact labels at a minimum of 10 strikes per traditional iron and 10 strikes per weight location for the SMS irons. All testing will be completed either on course or on a grass (dirt) range with reasonable attempts to maintain consist lies. I am offering the opportunity for an aging golfer (52 y/o) review of how the "everyman" public course golfer will benefit (I hypothesize) from this technology based on my experience with the SMS wedges. I have an average driver swing speed of 100-105 mph and am typically a slightly over the top "picker" with a bit of EE that is working to improve. My hypothesis is that this iron set using the SMS technology will allow me to evolve my swing without changing irons because each weighting position will compliment the change in delivery as I improve. Regardless if I am selected to review, I will be purchasing a set for the 2023 season.

    • In-hand photos of 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus, Stealth 2, Stealth 2 HD drivers + fairways woods
      Check out our front page launch stories here and here. 
       
      What you need to know: For the first time, carbon is the most prevalent material by volume in a TaylorMade driver, and more carbon equals better performance, says the company. Last year, TaylorMade debuted a 60X Carbon Twist Face. With TaylorMade Stealth 2, engineers are bringing carbon to more of the golf club — and unveiling a new-and-improved Carbon Twist Face in the process. Stealth 2 Plus (low spin, most workable) Stealth 2, and Stealth 2 HD (draw bias, high launch, most forgiving) drivers make up the Stealth 2 family.
       
      Stealth 2 


       
      Stealth 2 Plus


       
      Stealth 2 HD



       
      What you need to know: Breakthrough movable weight technologies and versatile designs are the hallmarks of the 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 fairway woods. Stealth 2 Plus is branded as “three fairway woods in one” owing to the unique performance characteristics afforded by the 50-gram sole weight. Stealth 2 features a slightly lower profile 3D carbon crown than Stealth. This moves CG down and away from the toe with more weight in the rear of the club for higher launch and MOI. Ultra-high MOI Stealth 2 HD features an oversized 200cc head and low-profile sole, creating an easy-to-hit, draw-biased club.
