Hey Steve -

Why don't to tell us what you really think? Ha..Ha..

I've been playing 1 Iron Golf clubs for three years and could'nt agree with you more. There's no brand of golf club anywhere that can compare with my 1 Irons no matter what misleading advertising or outright lies the golf industry tries to shove down your throat.

Well, I have had the 1 Irons for about ten weeks now, played about 20 rounds, hit about 5000 balls on the range. I decided, after toying around with it for the last 2 years, to take the opportunity with these new irons to comit to a major swing change. The Mike Austin/ Dan Slaughter method. That being said, my progress with the 1 Irons was hindered by such a major change in my swing. Or, you can say that my major swing change was greatly eased with the change to the 1 Irons. At this point I prefer the later as I can not see myself EVER going back to progressive length clubs.
My new swing is comming around enough to begin to trust it more on the course and although this is the 1 iron forum, I would reccommend this swing type to anyone, especially the new golfer or the golfer with back problems.
Back to the 1 Irons, I have adapted very well to the long irons and am really striking them solid. Although the wedges still feel long, I have adapted well to them also and am beginning to trust the distances(which are much longer for me). I am just not used to hitting a sand wedge 105 yards. But, after flying enough greens I am starting to believe.
Conclusion on the 1 Irons for now;
Nice appearance at address, sits very square.
Large sweet spot with minimal loss of distance on off center hits.
Very high ball flight with a standard swing.
Easy to draw, much more difficult to cut.
Very, Very good feel for a cast clubhead. Solid and soft.
Impart a ton of back spin, grooves are sharp.
Overall for me, 1 club longer than anything I have played before.
Consistant distances shot to shot, unlike many cast clubs where for no appearant reason you hit the ball 20 yards longer or shorter than normal.

Well, I can't think of any more accolades I can put on these irons right now. they are flat out THE BEST for your game.

Stop hesitating and pull the trigger, you are wasting your time and energy and emotion playing with anything else. I have 7 full sets of irons in my garage that are now worthless to me now and they are going on E-bay as soon as I have time.

Thanks to you, Mr Lake, for having the commitment, fortitude and love of the game to design and produce these clubs, I, as many before, will always thank you.

I suppose the next logical step will be to get the driver... but them I will have 6 other worthless drivers in my garage....

Thanks again,
Steve P.
