Hang in there. I think once you find the right shaft pairing these will give the Mizzys a run for their money. ????
I think its because they are hard stepped. But that's my opinion as I don't claim to know sh*t from shinola

I had these in play over the holiday weekend as well. They are starting to become a weapon for me. They have a heavier head than the Ping i500s and once I've gotten used to the added weight, the results have really started to show. I think I still prefer the Ping irons in full honesty, but these are starting to win me over after I've gotten used to them.

Since I only have one tournament left this year and its not until end of next month, I put my 919's aside and put these in the bag to give them a full chance. They are coming around but still don't have the "feel" my Mizzys have. They look sweet and they aren't a bad club by any means......so im going to keep them in the bag until I get close to tourney time next month.

In fairness, the only thing that feels like a Mizzy is another Mizzy.

With that said, im not saying these don't play nice. They play out really good and I think if anyone is in the market for forged irons they need to give these a look for sure.

Had these in play over the weekend and still continue to struggle a bit. Head to head, I prefer the feel and ball flight with my Ping irons, but these have gotten much better with more time. They are a great iron, but right now the Pings are simply more of a comfort for me.

Winning them outright doesn't have the same feel as snaking them, that's probably what leads to the discomfort :greenalien:😇

Maybe you’ll get lucky and have better villa mates this year. Hope they have strong backs ;)

He's already been saddled with one huge liability. He may need his other two mates to help carry that dead weight. :greenalien:

The good news is that there isn't really a wrong answer to your dilemma.

I know. I have a good problem going here haha I have two realllllly nice sets of irons here and I have to pick which is better. Could be worse

With my year winding down im going to end it with my mizzys for now, but this winter I will get some time with these indoors.

Brought these out again for a 9 hole round and was surprised at the results. I had previously struggled to find any consistency with them, but after not playing for a few weeks, I stepped right up and hit these pretty well. I still lean towards the Ping i500's as I just prefer that club style after having them for all of 2019, but the HF 2 irons are no slouch either. They look great and I like having the option to use them if the Ping's decide to go awol.
