4. Why do you want to test Edel's SMS irons? I was lucky enough to test the wedge and I love it. The weight system works great. I tend to hit the ball a little closer to the toe and being able to dial in the weight could help me out a lot.

I would like to test Edel's SMS irons for the distance gains (maintaining distance as I age) and really want to see the results from the weight movement capability.

I will gladly do an in-depth written review, with high quality photos, and respond to forum with updates and questions response

About Edel's SMS Irons

Clubface is king. SMS weighting gives golfers the ability to control their clubface throughout their swing to create the most efficient impact for them. Imagine having total control of your face angle by matching the SMS weights to your swing and unlocking the most accurate iron you’ve ever hit. By moving the heaviest weight on the iron to its optimal position, you’ll get total face control for increased distance, dialed-in accuracy, and ultimate iron performance. 

 

The SMS Irons feature a plasma welded maraging steel face cup to increase ball speed across the entirety of the face. Also, utilizing a forged hollow body construction for breakthrough distance, Edel has created a proprietary urethane foam fill to greater dampen vibrations and provide impeccable feel and sound.

4. Why do you want to test Edel's SMS irons? The Edel SMS fitting system has always intrigued me, and the reviews that I've seen for the SMS wedges are incredibly positive. I have a toe strike miss, so it would be very interesting to see how moving the weight to the toe would help with my mishits.

4. Why do you want to test Edel's SMS irons? I've always played blades. But the forgiveness possible with modern forged multi-piece construction is hard to ignore. Have been testing out different hollow-body, players distance irons. The ability for tuning weights across the set is what makes the Edel SMS particularly intriguing. 
5. Are you willing to do an in-depth written review, with high quality photos, and future updates? Yes. I have a LM at home. Professionally, I'm a technical writer.

3. Current iron set? Srixon ZX7/ZX5 combo set.
4. Why do you want to test Edel's SMS irons? I understand the potential fitting/swing weight benefits, but to be honest, I'm a bit skeptical regarding the dispersion benefits. Can adjustable weight in irons actually make a difference? Can the adjustable weights influence face angle and swing path? I'd like to find out. 
5. Are you willing to do an in-depth written review, with high quality photos, and future updates? Yes. I have a Foresight GC2 + HMT and could document actual results to the decimal point.

    • 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.
