I must first admit,I'm somewhat of a club junkie. Have been thru several sets of club looking for that perfect set-up, right shaft, and ball flight. What i came up with was I hate the set up of most cavity backs, because of too much offset, not good enough for a true blade, but prefer that set up. tried the 845c, and for a club junkie, they've been in my bag for over 2 yrs if that tells you anything. If you decide to try them find a set with the dynamic gold shafts, you'll find happiness.

Excellent, feel, ball flight, distance, and looks. High quality irons worth a try.

Customer Service

Excellent. I broke a shaft goofing around, took the club to a local pro shop and recieved a new club within a week.

Model Reviewed: Tommy Armour 845c

Tommy Armour 845c with TT DG S300 shafts. The somewhat long blade and narrow throat area give the clubs a slightly low profile look at address. For game improvement clubs, the topline is very thin. The notches on the back of the club can't be seen at address, but the back of the sole on the 3 and 4 irons is visible. Although they may not be drop-dead gorgeous in comparison to Hogan or Mizuno cavity backs, they're nice looking clubs. The offset is not obnoxious. The clubs have a couple of unique design elements: Constant .125 offset and 3 degree bounce from the 3-iron through 9-iron. This is common for Maltby designed clubs, and I'm not sure why. But it works. The lie angles are a little on the flat side. From a playability standpoint, the 845c's most prominent feature is forgiveness. Off center contact results in straight shots with only a slight loss of distance. Of course, open and closed club faces still result in slices and hooks, but the clubs are very easy to swing. Great clubs from uneven lies and moderate rough. The clubs favor a high trajectory, but fades, draws, and knockdowns are very easy when compared to other game improvement irons. Distance is equal to similarly lofted irons and very consistent. The long irons are almost as easy to hit as the short and mid irons. Even with S300 shafts, the clubs are a little on the light side. I could feel off-center hits, but the feedback was a little muted. Solid contact gives a very unique, satisying "crack" sound that I've never heard before. Nobody would confuse the feel or sound with Mizunos or other soft feeling forgings. On the other hand, they didn't feel as "clicky" or harsh as Hogans or some Titleists. These should appeal to a wide range of players. So-so ballstrikers would benefit from the clubs' forgiveness. Good players looking for a nice combination of forgiveness and workability would also like them. Due to their light weight and high shot characteristics, hard/quick swingers or those seeking a naturally low trajectory should stay away. Since Tommy Armour did a miserable job in marketing these excellent clubs, they're very cheap right now.

Tommy Armour -- not used, but it's frustrating that they don't have their older clubs' specs on their website TGW -- excellent

If you like hitting it high and straight these are the clubs. Not the longest irons I've hit, but they are the easiest to hit. Just line up and let it rip. Super soft feel in a forged cavity back design. If you had trouble with long irons before your troubles will be solved with these beauty's.

Model Reviewed: Tommy Armour Silverback 845c

I've been playing Ping ISI's for over 3 years. Either my game is improving or my swing is flating out... anyway, I needed a club with less offset. An I've been contemplating blades for awhile. These irons are just what I was looking for. Not a lot of offset: .125" each club. Narrow topline; forged; cavity back and smaller clubhead. In all this is a very nice club and the look is traditional. It also feels very good striking the ball!

I can't say enough about this product. I am 15 years old right now and I bought these irons because I like the fact that they look are a perfect mix between a blade and a cavity back. They are very forgiving,solid, and made by a super company.

Model Reviewed: Tommy Armour 845c Silverback

I have played Tommy Armour products for quite some time, beginning with the original 845s and most recently I used a set of 845 Silver Scots as my backup set, which became my main set after I became frustrated with my Callaway X-14s. In looking for a new set of clubs, I knew that I wanted to purchase a forged club that offered some forgiveness, but not something that looked big and clunky. I demoed the Titleist 690.MBs and .CBs as well as the Mizuno MP-33s and Taylor Made RAC irons. Good clubs, all of them...but then I took a look at the new Tommy Armour line and decided to try them. The 845m didn't work out for me. They didn't have the responsiveness I was looking for. Then I picked up the 845c and fell in love. Forgiveness, responsiveness and a classic look made these my irons of choice. And the price point could not be beat...half the price of some of the big names! If you think that these clubs are only for high/mid handicappers...think again. I play at a 4...have played with/demoed/tested many many many irons...and these ones work the best. As I say to everyone that asks my opinion on clubs...you don't need to buy these...but do put them on your 'to demo' list. Maybe they'll work out for you as they did for me.

Customer Service

Tommy Armour's offices are in Toronto where I live...so I can deal with them directly if I need to. My 8-iron got dinged just after I bought the Silverbacks (from car travel), but, they still replaced it!
