I just got some Centurion irons to try them. I figured that if I didn't like them I could donate them to the First Tee or give them to a friend. Shortly before that I had ordered a set of the new Ben Hogan Ft. Worth Black, a completely different club obviously. I went out and hit the Centurions and could not believe how they hit. They were shipped from North Carolina but I don't know the country of origin. The have a website that explains some interesting things like using oversized grips, etc. First of all, they are a carbon steel club that is very soft. The shafts have no markings but I ordered stiff and they are that. They are black clubs that I'm sure will wear quickly like my Nike Vapor Fly Pro did. I was so impressed that I bought 3 more sets, a 3 wedge set (I had bought a 56 degree wedge w/milled face) a 5 wood and putter all for under $500. You can't go wrong with this brand and I still can't figure out why they're so inexpensive, but I took full advantage. I even had a college golfer at our club hit one and he was overly impressed.
