Maltby DBM forged irons

Absolutely you could. I used the FST 90 shafts and with the 6, 7, 8 and 9 irons it cost me about $200. I'm going down to golfworks next month to test some shafts, the AXE Tour being one of them, to change out what I've got now. I'll also be looking at the Recoil shafts.

 

He's right about them being durable, they still look pretty new for clubs I built in 2014.

what would you compare them to, forgiveness wise? I'm thinking about moving to some ping G irons as well. The black finish just looks amazing on the DBM irons and they look more players iron then game improvement. Little to no offset.

Forgiveness wise, according to the MPF they're close to the Karsten or G20.

The finish? Absolutely, when clean they don't show wear at all...or very very little.

Awesome

I need to build a 7i and give it a try. See if I like them more than my i20. If so, build the rest of a set. I'm wanting to build these with the AXE tour X graphite shafts.

Look at the Recoil 6XX shaft as well. I tried the AXE, Recoil, steelfiber and paderson. I discounted the Steelfiber and Paderson straight away because I didn't like the feel. I really wanted the AXE tour, but the Recoil felt better and I got more distance out of it.

Got the 7i today. Put a gray cross line ACE on there. Looks sweet. Hoping to hit it this weekend to figure out if I will order the rest of the set or bail and go PING Gs

Thanks. Haven't had a ton of time to hit it yet. In the sim it was the exact same distance as my PING i20 green dot but it was way tighter dispersion. I was offline an average of 6 feet where with the i20 I was an average of 16 feet.

Sounds promising. Are you going to build the rest of the set?

If I like the 7i enough I am. I was given the go-ahead from the wife for B-day. If I don't like them, I'm going to get a set of PING Gs to replace my i20s.

 

I'd like to get the Maltby though. I hear this finish holds up like no other black head and have hear nothing but good things about this shaft.
