I’ve had my Blackstones 5-LW a month. They’re the first set of irons that I consistently hit in the middle of the face.
I’ve owned 2 sets of PXG’s, Titleists, TaylorMade & Callaway plus a set of Hogans. I was improperly fit many times incl. 2 deg. up, 2 deg. flat, standard, graphite, steel & steel fiber.
A company in Ohio that I never heard of or met to fit me properly.
Having 1 plane 4 all the irons helped my driver & hybrid swing also. Simply less stress.
When I ordered them my biggest concern was greenside bunkers. Surprisingly it is easy no matter the sand conditions. I use the LW for short shots & SW for longer bunker shots. I don’t have to open the blade. I just swing.
It takes getting used to the change in the lofts from other manufacturers who make theirs artificially strong. And they only have lofts on the bottom not an actual number (such as 5 iron). I fixed this problem by purchasing iron covers with numbers on them.
Something else I have noticed is I need to change how I align my approach shots. I used to have to allow for mishits but now I just aim at the flag or a spot on the green. They are that accurate.
One more thing. After using them for 3 weeks I went to PGA Superstore to try the single length Cobra’s. I figured I had 30 days to return my Blackstones so why not be sure. The Cobra’s were not as accurate nor did I hit them as far.
I won’t be returning these irons. Ever.
