Value for this set was great (TGW had one last set of 3-PW available for left-hand, so I got a great price). Never played with forged clubs before, let alone blades. Took a chance, convinced by many it would take years for a mid-to-high handicapper such as myself to be able to adjust to hitting these clubs, which are typically recommdended for low-handicap only. However, I figured for the price it was worth a try, and I could always sell them if I found it too frustrating of an experience.
I've always been a decent iron striker, and probably worth pointing out that for me this is a stronger point of my overall game (which has a lot of weaknesses as well, I'm 13-20 handicap). According to everything I read, these clubs were going to be tough to hit for my level, and it was going to take time to adjust from my old cavity backs. I was told I'd get to "feel" the shot though, and gain the feedback necessary if I worked at it, and eventually really begin to be able to play, and that's what I was ready to work on.
The actual experience has been much more positive than that, overwhelmingly so -- they aren't "impossible" to hit, in fact, I absolutely love playing them -- it is a "feel" experience, 100%. If you are athletic enough to adjust your mishits according to feedback, the experience of hitting these is a joy -- and far fewer mishits than great strikes! One note is that being a blade, when you do pure it, it's going to add a bunch of yardage, and that may be an unexpected result. But if you hit mainly on center, even if you don't clip it perfectly, they're going to feel good (and you can always chase the "pure" hit at the range, since you can feel the difference.) If you're a cavity-back player, be prepared for a much smaller club face, which is intimidating at first, but you can adjust very quickly to this. The club's capabilities are such that "trusting the club" starts to really play into it -- you realize that harder strikes or swinging too quickly is a total detriment, etc. I really started to slow down and smooth out, and distribute balance and power more evenly with these teaching me along the way. Mainly knowing that the center of the club face has a lot of weight behind it to do the job for me, and distance is not an issue when struck well. I understand why they call these "player's" clubs now! Also, great for bad lies/deeper rough, the smaller club face and denser club head/heavier weight mean I'm going to get through the thick stuff with better overall contact.
I definitely took a gamble, and it paid off huge. I can't comment on any other blades having never tried any other ones out, but I highly recommend these FG62s. I do know they have a slightly larger face than some other blades, maybe that lends itself to a bit of an easier time with hitting these well, not sure. So highly recommended, assuming you have some natural golf swing mechanics that you already trust, some consistency, and are not a total beginner. Even then, they'd teach you how to get better, but might take a bit of time and or a lesson or two to start down the right road.
These clubs bring YOU up to the level of being a better player, rather than allow you to stay where you are by offering too much forgiveness for bad shots, so if that's what you're looking to do, grab a set.
Pros: High quality, Durable, feel/feedback for improving swing
I would recommend this to a friend!

I received the irons and went to our range. Instantly, I was hitting the ball with a much higher trajectory and better control. I was raised playing Wilson Dynapower Fluid Feel irons(44 years of use) and retired them immediately after using these irons. We are in winter here at the time, but I know when playing weather comes, I will easily be knocking a few strokes off of my game with these irons.

I played a Wilson X31 for years then switched to contemporary perimeter weighted cavity back oversized heads with offset because I felt they were easier to hit. I missed the playability of blades so I got a set of the FG62's a couple of weeks ago. Some in my group state that I was going back in time purchasing blades. Well.....after a couple of buckets on the range and a couple of rounds on the course, i find the FG62's has a bigger sweet spot than the X31's, a bounce on each iron (3-pw) that gets through bermuda and paspallum (excuse the spelling), hard pan, has accuracy, distance control and shot shaping. I've tried numerous iron shafts in my lifetime. I went back to dynamic gold and will stick with it.

I played these the end of last season ('11) and thus far this season, and they are phenomenal irons. They have an excellent, soft feel, pured shots are 'butter' as they say. I was actually really surprised; I have played numerous sets of Mizunos before this and thought only the 1020, 1030 etc. steel forgings could have that soft feel. The FG62s are 8620 forged and are honestly, without a doubt, softer feeling than some of the mizuno MP models I've played, it's really changed the way I think about forgings now. I really have nothing negative to say about these irons, they are as good or better than anything I've played before. I find them fairly forgiving for a blade, distance is the same as other forgings I've played, workability is superb, I love the looks, particularly the full heel and blunted toe, the leading edges are fairly sharp which works well for me as I take little to no divot, head size is compact but not too small, thin topline, minimal offset (less than 0.1" throughout the set), the grooves are nice and give me good spin (they're conforming), love that they came with the Lamkin Crossline; my favorite grip anyway. Just great irons.
