As is the case with all Srixon models the Soft Feel features an Energetic Gradient Growth Core that produces low spin and high launch for outstanding distance.

I ended up putting him in extra-stiff shafts steel in his 5-iron through wedges and graphite in his woods. I traded his bladelike 4-iron for a Ping G400 hybrid and replaced his one-piece forged irons with TaylorMade P790s both of which produced superior performance: 10 yards of extra carry with his new graphite-shafted hybrid and nearly 14 extra total yards with his new stiffer-shafted irons.” — Andres Victoriano True Spec certified fitter
Other features include a thinner looking topline an angled back area for more MOI and stability and an overall more refined look. Like the original 0311 irons the GEN2 models are built with adjustable tungsten and titanium weights that can be tuned to produce an extremely accurate fit.
