I live in Northeast Ohio, so I have only been to the driving range twice and have hit 160 balls so far. The black face and white lines on the Blackstone irons really do help in getting the club squared to the target. I have been consistently hitting the ball in line with my target. There is an adjustment that needs to be made regarding aligning the ball in your stance but that didn't take long to figure out. Given the weather, snow, it is hard to accurately judge distance, but I believe I am relatively close club for club with my old set. Overall, I am pleasantly surprised, I like the set and will be keeping it. They are just as advertised and marketed.
