The Powerbilt Citation Tour Forged Iron Heads use modern forging and milling techniques to produce have a semi-blade style (shallow cavity) head with ultra-soft feel and great shot-making characteristics. Made of high quality forged carbon steel to enhance feel.
The combination of a compact shape, blade length, and minimal offset will definitely appeal to the better player. The hosel is shorter, and that saved weight is repositioned on the toe end so that the center of gravity is located in the precise center of the score line area to reward a well-struck shot.
The "tour" sole grind offers relief and reduced turf interference. Laser engraved grooves ensure maximum spin on the greens.

Well, it appears that nobody in the history of the interwebs has ever reviewed them....so here goes! I have the Citation Tours on Fujikura Pro95i shafts (kudos to master builder Doug Mael). First off, the heads are small by today's standards. I consider myself a good ballstriker (4 hdcp), and I was nervous about hosel rockets at first. But, a month later, no such problems. The Citation are "players" irons, amazing feel, beautiful, and only somewhat forgiving.
My gamers are the Dynacraft Prophet MuscleBacks. The Citation Tours are 1/2 club shorter for the same loft in the long irons (considering the loft difference is 3*, that is really good). The PMBs are long and forgiving, whereas the Citations are almost as long, and surgically accurate. My first two rounds with the Citations I had two tap-in birdies in each round, something I don't see often with the PMBs.
Sure, $50ish a head is pricey. But, this head is pure quality. If you are a good ball striker, these may save you a couple of strokes per round.
