Nice one @SteddyGolf can't say I blame you for holding onto the clubs.

I am still coming! We are still waiting on exact dates for when I need to start working on the ice. I'm thinking it will be around the 15th of January. Unfortunately I doubt these will be coming along for the ride unless I can find a bigger bag to bring.
It is stupid expensive to ship a set of clubs from Halifax. I am looking into more options though!

When I book I'll double check, but in the past it's been one... You have me thinking though!

Okay stage 2 is up! With the move it looks like a crazy weekend and best to get it out now while I have the time!!

If anyone has any questions please fire away. I'd be more then happy to answer any questions anyone may have. Or get more data pictures if you like.

Big thanks to mgs and Ping again. I had a ton of fun and really enjoyed the challenge. Hope everyone enjoys the read!

One more picture!
This was quite often what the bag looked like around the course. Something I won't be missing. The bag was as you could imagine was so heavy! IMG_20181025_183759.jpeg

Scoring iron height & stopping power is always a big thing for me with irons. I tend to hit a lower ball which can be a problem when I'm trying to hold a green. so whenever there's an iron review, that's one area I'm always interested in. Especially if you can hit some side by side shots with the same club from the i210s and your current gamers to see how they perform. 

I addressed stopping power a bit in stage 2, but to go into a bit more detail the i210 had a notocibly higher ball flight then the e1. Throughout the whole set. I didn't get LM numbers on the e1, but side by side shots were very telling. Low strikes I could feel the elastomer compress helping get the ball higher in the air.

I initially thought spin numbers could be a concern, but if you look into the data you can see they we're quite high... Arguably too high on the 4 and 5 irons. Even with some greens being firmer I was able to get a good one hop stop with a lot of the irons which I believe helped me increase my greens in reg. Not that I didn't have that with the e1, but they did roll out a bit more. This could also have been simply newer grooves?

Hope that helps answer your question.

Fantastic. Glad to hear they helped your GIR and yeah - that's totally the kind of info I love to read about with iron reviews. Thanks for that!

Thanks guys, had a lot of fun in my first testing opportunity!
Really can't wait to see what the other two think. A part of me still wants to see what the i500 are like... Maybe one day I'll give them a whack. Maybe a 3 iron would be a perfect gap club.

Had the final round of the season today. Have to say that the more rounds I get in with the i210 the better they come along. It was cold and wet so distances are far from amazing, but on the flip side it's giving me opportunity to use other clubs into greens.
I've really been happy with being able to work the ball for a fade and draw and found the face very responsive even in the cold weather.
Hoping to get some simulator rounds in over the winter months and see what more data I can get from there.
One final note that I didn't throw into stage 2, but before I got the i210 I went through the stage 2 outline and review with my I e1 series. I ended up giving them a 79/100. This was done before I had even received the i210 and think is very telling on how much of an improvement the i210 are from the e1 series.

Love the stage twos guys, I was one of the fan boys for the I500s and applied to test them but after reading their reviews and your reviews I'm happy I missed out. The I210s sound like excellent clubs and far more consistent. I really like the sound of them from your videos and think they would suit me well. Thanks for the great work and honest reviews 😎😁👏👏

Hopefully I'll be bringing them with me so you can give them a hit!
