Tour Edge Hot Launch C521 Irons
The details: Forgiveness is featured throughout the E521 and C521 Hot Launch irons. The E521 includes a “Houdini” sole that reduces turf interaction by 35 percent, according to Tour Edge; hollow-body perimeter weighting that creates distance properties of a metal wood; and a shallow cup forged face that produces higher launch angles. The C521 includes an expanded undercut cavity that moves more weight back for stability; a wide sole design that lowers the center of gravity for more consistent contact; and a chamfered top line that increases face height and thickness for, you guessed it, forgiveness.
