Currently gaming Callaway Mavrik Irons

I would like the opportunity to test the standard Icons to see if I have the ball striking ability to go to a player's iron! Or at least for a very honest review of my ball striking ability to be included in the review!

First Name/City State or City Country. Kevin. Gilbert, AZ.

Handicap. 7 Hdcp.

Current Iron Model Played Srixon 585/785 combo

Which would you like to test? PTX Pro - Icon combo. Would love to see how this combo set and V sole compares to the Srixon 85 series. See how these gap as well with the 4 degree spaced lofts.

Current Mizuno JPX 900 Forged /Hot Metal Combo

 PTX Pro-Icon Combo, I'm a huge fan of combo sets. Definitely helped my game. Really interested in trying out the utility iron. Just went back to those now and play it much better than the hybrids. 

These clubs look amazing. Look forward to hearing about these.

This "Testers" opportunity is probably the only one recently I can say is of interest to me. (Please don't kick me out for commenting) These irons are beautiful. Honestly, I'd consider buying a set and taking them to my fitter to set them up. So... I'll wait to see who gets selected and perhaps follow a couple of the Tester experiences. Best of luck all.

First Name/City State: Mike / Madison, WI

Handicap: 3.3

Current Iron Model Played: Mizuno JPX919 Forged (4-6) / Tour (7-PW) Combo Set

Which would you like to test:  PTX Pro-Icon Combo w/UiHi (Icon might technically be a better fit, at least on paper, but the combo is a better comparison for my current set). 

Driver: :callaway-small: Epic Flash Sub Zero, 9* (adjusted to 10*), Accra TZ6 75 (American Flag), M5 Flex

Fairway: :taylormade-small: SIM, 15*, Accra FX 2.0 300F, M5 Flex

Driving Irons: :titleist-small: T200 3 and 4 irons with Graphite Design Tour AD-IZ 95 X Flex

Irons:  :titleist-small: T100S 5-PW with Nippon Pro Modus 120 X Flex (2021 MGS Test)

Wedges: :mizuno-small:T-20 Blue Ion 50.07, 56.10, 60.06 w/DG Tour Issue S400; sometimes tag in the :Miura: K-Grind 2.0 Black 56* and Chrome 60* w/Accra SPI Tour, but going back to all Mizuno for early 2022

Putter: Depends on the day. Bounce between :EVNROLL: ER11V and :mizuno-small: M Craft Type II Blue Ion...and now the Toulon Madison is in the rotation for 2022
