As my game has deteriorated with age and physical problems, I decided it was time to go from my forged Mizuno irons to a set of game improvement, then more recently to super game improvement irons.
One of my regular playing group plays an older set of the HB irons and I asked to hit his a few times. I liked the feel and the look didn't bother me, having become quite a hybrid fan. Last week, I took delivery of my Launcher HB Turbo set, 4-DW, senior flex and I did the mod to lengthen them 1.5" and backweight them with 40 grams of lead. They got my usual jumbo grips and I was ready to do battle.
My initial impression was, I got back a LOT more from badly hit shots than anything I've played before. Cleveland has something really good going here if you can convince people not to be afraid of the looks.
