    Package delivered about an hour ago from FedEx!!!

    I can't say enough how excited and honored I am to have been selected for this. GIGANTIC THANK YOU to and Golf!

    My specs: 3-PW w/ Project X 5.0 steel shaft, standard loft, standard lie

    Unboxing video:



    These irons are just ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS - no denying that.

    The biggest change for me is the top lines - they make the clubs look so much smaller in comparison to my previous irons (Cobra S9's).

    Heading to range in a few hours and will have first impression from hitting them after that.

    Onto the pics:

    Nike VR Pro Combo 3-PW




    Project X 5.0 shafts




    4 iron (Pocket Cavity), 7 iron (Split Cavity, and PW (blade)



    4 iron (Pocket Cavity)



    7 iron (Split Cavity)



    PW (Blade)



    4 iron comparison



    7 iron comparison

    What is the difference between the Pocket cavity and the Split cavity?

    And those are gorgeous! That 4I comparison is scary looking to me.
