All in all, happy with mine so far. They look great, they feel great in hand. I've only made it out for 1 round, and I was swinging HORRIBLY. When I made solid contact, it was solid contact and a ton of backspin on the shorter irons. 

I'm curious about distance - I went back to PXG to hit on the monitor and do a gapping session, and was hitting the 7 iron I bought a good 20 yards shorter than the one I was fitted with. How concerned should I be there? When it comes down to it I'm fine with the distance I'm getting but I was expecting more, and worry the fitting was skewed somehow.

That is interesting you bring that up about the 7i. I just get a trackman session yesterday and was barely hitting my 7i farther than my 9i. Was your fitting outdoor or indoor? Weather could play a role. During my fitting i was hitting into a 20mph wind so my optimized numbers were about 165 even though i know they weren't going that far. I have noticed that on the course, my club numbers seem a little low compared to what I would expect. I just figured that was due to doing to a stiff shaft from x-stiff on my prior set. Now i just found out from the guy I did my trackman session with, that based on my static measurements, my clubs should be 1 1/4" longer. Like you I am slightly concerned now. For your concern, all depends on conditions I guess. Has your swing changed since your fitting?? Glad you got some good contact in with these as they look pretty when they go.

Mentioned in other threads but these were chunk city or snap hooks from anywhere but the tee on Sunday. Did hit some real nice solid drives with the 4i but could not get anything going. Tried a wider stance on the course as a suggestion from a pro i met with last week and I think that caused all sorts of issues. Need to take some time to evaluate what the stance change did and correct it before another round. The 4i is still my favorite club. I have never said that about a long iron before.

After some swing thought changes, played a practice round and had great results. These are going to be keepers unless I win a contest. Here are images of a couple shots.

haha. I should preface this was a practice round. The first nine iron image was a provisional after I hooks the original. Went back to what the pro said and threw that dart. I was shocked as well. Came off as a nice baby draw which from my setup (open club face as address and slightly weak right hand) surprised me. Same thought with the 6i and wow.

Dropped a couple dimes yesterday with these during my round. Only took one photo of the 9i shot. Had this for birdie from 8ft but missed it. Wonderful shot into the fog. The other shot was a 8i into a par three I usually blow up on. Had my best 9 hole  round to date and these clubs played a part in that despite not having the best ball striking day. Hit balls not so solid but kept them straight in the early part of the round.

Starting to feel more comfortable with these clubs, getting it dialed in a bit more. I keep being surprised how much backspin is generated, even a 5-iron into a green tends to leave a pretty decent-sized pitch mark and spin back.

I've also only really played in wet conditions. Will be playing Chambers Bay on Friday, time for a real test.

Yeah! I had a thin, low 9i the other day into a green.. that was not super soft.. and it still made a pitch/spin mark.

Which was lucky as off the back of the green is trouble!

I wish I would have. I went into the fitting wanting to hit those but never did. There is a sole difference. I did hit these compared to the new Level forged and these felt way better.

My previous gamers were a combo set of Srixon z565/z765 (now at the in-laws beach house), and I like the feel of my 0211 just as well as the forged Srixons - the "goo" works.  Now have MMT 80 S shafts in the 0211 based on the fitter's recommendation due to my quick transition, which I hit much more consistently than the MMT 70 R that I would have ordered if I had not been fitted.
