I went and took the Ci9 irons for 18 holes on friday and was amazed. They felt so good it was amazing. My question is has anybody hit the Ci7's and the Ci9's? The 9's are over $900 and the discontinued 7's are around $4 - 600. Do they feel as good and perform as well as the 9's. Also how do the TM R7 irons compare? Thanks for the advice

I can't help you with this one but am interested in responses. I used to have CI6's . A good set of irons also.

I'm not a really consistent golfer so a bit hard to comment but my iron game has improved quite a lot since getting them. They just seem really easy to hit and the ball seems to stay in the air forever. You really know when you've hit it sweet and even the 4 & 5 irons are fairly easy to get up in the air. i'm not sure why but i feel a lot more confident standing over the ball using these than my previous irons. also keep in mind they seem to have a stronger loft and the PW is around 43 degrees i think. If you can still pick them up in the states around the $250 mark i wouldn't think the Ci9's would be worth the extra dollars.

Yep, I remember my ci6's had ridiculously strong lofts - something like 43 degrees for the pitching wedge. At the time my next club up was a 56 degree sand wedge. A monstrous gap between clubs, even if I had stuck a 50 degree in between. I recall that the strong loft issue was one of the reasons why I moved them on.

I had a look on ebay US and there are no Ci9's to compare to. Heaps of 7's but. I found I was a lot more confident with the 9's than my current irons (Nike Slingshots) And the 7's are $220 for graphite and $250 for steel. I also checked out the lofts on line and they are the same for long irons, 1 deg stronger for mids and 2 deg stronger for the low irons.

I have a set of the ci7's also. Easy to hit and look good when standing over the ball, gave me more confidence in my iron play. I find the four iron easy to hit too. Can't fault them really. Got mine on ebay from the US shipped for just under $300 3 months ago.

I still play with ci6s... the loft on the PW is 45 deg and the SS 55 deg.... it certainly makes you think hard at about the 80-90 meter mark... I have ci6 irons 5 - SW and the 2 (15 deg loft) and 4 (22 deg loft) hybrids dh6
