The Draws allow me to hit it higher and longer than my old Bobs and old, old Lynx USA's. Even missing it a bit to the toe or heel still gives me a pretty straight shot, and I am penalized much less severely with a fat hit.
Frankly it is pretty hard not to hit these anything but straight unless you really try. It is easier to hit a draw than a fade, but I was never very consistent at either so I don't often try.
I like the soles a lot. Not just with the long irons, but around the greens as well. They just don't get hung up in the grass. They're not that much wider (less than 1/4" on the 7 iron compared to my old blades), but if you like to cut deep square divots they're most likely not to you. For me, my chipping and pitching is a lot more consistent (especially from the rough), and I can really open the face of my wedges to really pop it up without the fear of bouncing the club into the ball.
