I agree about the pricing, but I do find the suspended tungsten story rather interesting.

Lightweight shaft stock options on the irons and made for shaft option on the hybrid. 

Not sure what the target market is for these irons. Guess it's competing against XXIO?

41* PW? I'm always on team "who cares about strong lofts" but JFC just call it a 9 iron. 

And an AW and a GW? Marketing at it's finest

How do you even gap with a PW at that loft? Start having to carry 6 wedges

TxG just tested the Epic Forged and said they're the longest irons they've ever seen. 4i was carrying 270+ for some of them... That's my driver 😭

Set also includes AW, GW, and SW. You'd likely end up with 5 clubs stamped as wedges.

It's getting a lil crazy. Obviously someone needs to design a new system for stamping.

We gotta stop calling them 4 irons, no matter how “high” they fly, and how “steep” the descent. It’s NOT a 4 iron....

In the Bridgestone JGR HF1 line (SGI) that we had a choice of last fall, they have what they call a PW1 (38*) and PW2 (44*). The set also includes AW, so if you add a SW and LW, you are at 5 "wedges" too.

Look at the set makeup on their website. The gap wedge is 46 and the AW is 51 lol

Will they be available as individual irons or just the whole set? I wouldn't mind getting a quality 4 iron as my apex set is 5-AW.

That I don't know. I would assume the availability would be the same as other Callaway products.

The new Epic Forged...  2 clubs longer BECAUSE your 9 iron is now the same as your old 7 iron.  

Time to ditch the numbering system and everyone just go with lofts only.

Wow.  Them's some lofts!  The longest iron I could hit in that set would be the "7" iron.  The thing that really bothers me about loft creep is that companies have started using 5 or even 6 degree gaps in the short irons in an effort to cover all distances.  And this is from a guy who bags strong lofted irons.
