However, my take on these irons was not good. Required fields are marked *. The lofts are on the strong side as the faster face will send the ball higher, so they have to be delofted a little to keep the flight the same, but they are only 0.5° stronger than G400 in the 6-iron, although you can really crank them up with the Power Spec loft option should you be so inclined. So save a couple of hundred and get the G400's. Importantly, you get the additional distance with higher launch so those long shots land softly.
