Shaft: KBS Tour Flex: Stiff Lie: -2į
Lynx use a two-piece construction combining a forged face and a cast steel body; however, itís inside where all the technology lies. Lynx are using a hollow muscle back design that utilises a variable thickness, which helps forgiveness on off centre strikes. But itís the combination of variable thickness and the hollow head technology that has helped them redistribute weight into areas of the head that benefits each club throughout the set, helping improve ball speeds off the face giving a higher ball flight and more playability.
The club is topped off with a KBS Tour steel shaft as standard in regular, stiff and X-stiff and a premium Lamkin Crossline grip and comes in a Satin Chrome or Gun Metal finishes.
To say I was impressed would be an understatement, the face is beautifully designed and compact and I really loved the way the club sat behind the ball, it looked very powerful. There was one aspect I was a little apprehensive about knowing the tech, and that was how the hollow design would affect the sound at impact, I really need not have, the sound was perfect and I could feel the ball sprang off the face.
The one surprising feature for me was the high ball flight that I was achieving. Although it didnít affect the distance, it did help with distance control as I felt the ball was stopping quicker on the green coming down from a higher trajectory.
If you like a bladed clubface that offers feel, power and forgiveness, the KBS Tour shaft as standard at probably the best price for a forgiving blade on the market, you certainly have to make sure the Lynx Prowler VT Irons are on your list of clubs to test before you make that final decision.
