3. Current iron set?  Mizuno JPX 900 Hot Metal
4. Why do you want to test Edel's SMS irons?  First, the looks are outstanding.  My current irons have 1/2 inch extensions and it's time for me to get a set that fits and in which I have total confidence.  Used H-G Goldlines for years and recognize the value of  custom-fitted clubs.  Home course is TPC Southwind.  GM/PGA Pro of our club just got an absolutely beautiful Edel Putter after being custom-fit in TX.  He can't say enough good things about Edel.   I know the golf swing and equipment and am capable of providing meaningful insight and info.     
5. Are you willing to do an in-depth written review, with high quality photos, and future updates?  Yes.  For what it's worth, I am a damn fine writer and should require minimal editing.

3. Current iron set?

  • APEX 21

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

  • I currently use the SMS Wedges and would love to see if the irons provide similar feel and customization as the wedges. I believe the wedges have entirely changes my short game and I believe what Edel has going is a game changer in the iron game. 
  • I haven't been selected to do any past reviews that I've applied for but I believe this is the most ideal for me to compare my current irons with the new SMS irons alongside the wedges.

5. Are you willing to do an in-depth written review, with high quality photos, and future updates?

  • For sure, I do a lot of technical writing in my job and also am a photographer as a side business. I believe I'll be able to provide a great, in-depth, write up with my background in a timely matter.

2. Handicap? 5.5
3. Current iron set?  Cobra Fly-Z+ with KBS TGI 110g shafts +0.5", Golf Pride MCC grips counterweighted for D5 swing weight
4. Why do you want to test Edel's SMS irons?  Because I am infatuated by club customization and the scientific aspects of the game.  Golf requires athletic skill, of course, but I believe the technological features of the golf club are dramatically overlooked by recreational players.  Length/Loft/Lie are traditional features addressed during a fitting process, but now Edel is offering not oy head weight customization, but head weight positioning customization all in one offering!  This is an amazing opportunity to me.  As a player who builds his own clubs, I would relish the opportunity to test them.
5. Are you willing to do an in-depth written review, with high quality photos, and future updates?  Without question.  I'm looking to upgrade my irons in the near future, and also aiming to work on my swing to learn a baby draw.  I currently hit a slight fade, and have always struggled to work the ball right to left.  I feel this SMS technology could really help my shot shaping.

 

Thank you for the Opportunity!

4. I recently bought an Edel putter. The fitting process was amazing and the results were better. I have a wedge fitting this week at Edel HQ. After a 15 year break from the game, the technology has advanced and I think this is one of the most innovative advancements I have seen.

4. I'm only three months in to golfing and have fallen hard for it. I got my current irons from a family friend and hit them pretty well, but, even with lessons, I slice my iron shots 80-90% of the time. I'd love to have some adjustable faces to help correct that without butchering my swing.

5. I'd love to do a review!

4. I love listening and reading about new technology.  I have listened to all of the Eden podcasts, and they convinced me to do an Eden putting fitting.  I really enjoyed that, purchased a putter, and have been putting very good since then.  I'd like to try my hand at their irons to compare with my putter process.  (Wedges are next after my Vokeys wear out a bit more.)
5. Yes. I play year round.

4. In the market for new irons. Would like something with better turf interaction. Maybe a slightly flatter sole or sharper leading edge (playing mostly tight, firm fairways with deep Bermuda rough). Prefer to work the ball left to right and fight a high ball flight, so the adjustable weight system is intriguing. My current irons are packed with lead tape and I like to tinker anyway. Is there a heavier weight set offered to adjust for higher SW? 

5. Absolutely!

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

     As an engineer, I love to tinker with all clubs and new tech. I’ve built a lot of my own clubs and played many many different sets. The profile of the SMS irons looks absolutely perfect and movable weight technology is quite interesting in an iron. With a slight tendency to miss out on the toe, I’d be interested to see it placing more mass behind the ball would help or not. Was also considering picking up a set of the Edel SL irons to try and these look even better. 
5. Are you willing to do an in-depth written review, with high quality photos, and future updates?

     Absolutely, yes. I’d very much welcome and appreciate the opportunity to test and advise on my experiences to benefit the GolfWRX community.

    • 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.
