Summary: i bought the a3's because i liked the concept of a set using hybrids in place of the longer irons. the a3's are an aesthetically attractive set. in terms of playability they are not nearly as easy to hit as they appear to be. mishits are punished more severely than what is typical for a game improvement club. also, the feel on mishits is hollow and disturbing. the quality is just not there like it is with, say, pings or callaways.
