Swing Science FC-One Pro Forged Iron Coming May 2017!

Swing Science has announced the FC-One Pro forged iron will be added to the Swing Science line up in May 2017.  This is good news as the S800 forged iron had been out of the line up for some time.

The FC-One Pro forged head is made using 1025, or SC-25, carbon steel, even softer feeling, and more malleable, than the original S800 series forged released in 2008, which was made using 1035.  They will come with a .355 tapered hosel rather than .370 parallel hosel.  This allows use of the FC-One Pro iron shaft for players that have a a bit higher mid-iron swing speed with later release for a lower piercing ball flight or the use of Nippon .355 tapered iron shafts for various player swing types.  The FC-One Pro forged head will come in a satin finish pictured above or black.  I have yet to see the black or know how the finish will wear over time. read more
