Speedblades are a cavity-back, cast iron with a moderate amount of offset and a brushed finish. The size and shape look appealing and doesn’t look as forgiving as we now know they are.
The SpeedBlade irons have a two-tone, satin nickel chrome plating with dark smoke satin ion plating that looks great.
More importantly than the finish, these irons feature a newly engineered speed pocket, a handle-bar shaped slot in the sole of the 3-7 irons that enables a large area of the face to flex and rebound at impact, resulting in faster ball speed, higher launch and better feel.
TMag’s research indicated that 72% of shots by 5- to 25-handicappers are impacted below the center of the face, which typically results in low-launching shots of inconsistent distance.
But I must say, the performance of the SpeedBlades is eyebrow-raising here, in a good way. Long and mid irons explode off the clubface and reach soaring, green-holding heights. In a few instances, well-struck shots appear to fly past my target. Short irons, while still forgiving and powerful, are also precise. It’s an impressive display of ball-striking all around. I’m reminded of that scene from Demolition Man where Wesley Snipes’ character (Simon Phoenix) finds the futuristic ray gun in the museum, fires it and is immediately dazzled.
Off-center hits are quite playable.
