The Cleveland VAS irons were definitely the worst looking irons produced in my lifetime. Funny thing is, most people that played them thought they were decent performers.

But that huge offset, the unfinished looking pewter/lead like finish, the tacky and plastic look graphics on the back of the club head. A club only a mother could love.

Yep, Corey won the US Open with them. I actually have a set of the VAS+ that came right after those. I let my friends borrow them when they want to start up golf. Those ugly suckers are responsible for turning at least 5 of my friends into new golfers.

I also take them out every once in awhile.

V.A.S. Vibration Absorbing System! They actually still use it in irons now, just a tad more subtle.

For me personally, the new 2011 Callaway RAZR X Forged is right up there. Previous iterations weren't exactly classical beauties, but they were ok lookswise. Now they just really massacred a classic CB appearance !

Ping Tour-S Rustique 60/TS & 55/13 / Ping CFS Stiff / Ping ID8
Ping i20 4-PW+UW / Ping CFS Stiff / Ping ID8
Ping G15 2H 17° & driver 9° / stiff aldila serrano / ping 703

I agree with everything RB said, sans the Dynacraft... at least, their most current stuff. The slot-blades and CNC milled look really good, in my opinion.

My favorite things about this thread:

 

One of my best friends plays those ugly SUMOs (with stock graphite shafts no less).

 

Last year I played quite a few times with a guy (yes a guy) who bagged the VAS. The pictures don't come close to representing both the unbridled hideousness of these clubs, or the EPIC amount of offset. I don't think the clubface actually impacts the ball until the shaft has finished the follow through.
