Saw these irons in August... bought em on the spot. The overall appearance is just plain beautiful, Adams spared no expense, the C-tapers and New Decade Whiteout grips complete this iron to the fullest... not only are they hands down the best looking iron, but they perform fantastically. I'm about a 9 handicap and have no problem with these irons and the feel is so butter. A great forged iron, great feel, great looks, great technology. Well worth 1000 bucks!
