When I got a set of these off ebay two years ago for about $150 I was about a 12 hdcp. Now I'm a 3 hdcp. This is the perfect set for a mid to low handicapper who wants to get better. You'll get feedback on mishits but won't sacrifice as much distance as a pure blade. Well-struck shots feel like butter and go a mile! IF you want to improve, get rid of your oversized shovels and pick up a set of these!
