The snow here in Central Oregon has finally melted and I was able to get on the range to hit my new Caiman irons. The temp was around 46* with a 15-18 mph wind coming at me.
Looks: The Caiman irons are really nice looking, maybe even stunning. The pro at our club walked by as I was hitting them and said "Man, those are some cool looking irons!". They set up to the ball nicely. Not too small, not too big. The topline is a bit thicker than I thought it would be but definitely more blade-like than shovel-like.
The finish is nice, but not sure how long the copper-plating will hold up. Once nice thing about the face is that ball marks show up so you can see where you hit the ball. The grooves are super-thin/shallow. Time will tell how long they will last.
Shafts: No one seems to know what these shafts are even though they have True Temper labels and GolfEtail told me they were TT Dynamic Gold R300. They feel good, not overly heavy and not super light. They feel good. Ball flight was mid-high. I will possibly re-shaft since I'm trending to graphite shafts as I get older. The only complaint is my shots seemed to draw more than normal. Maybe it's the regular flex. I normally draw/hook the ball but I had to be careful with these because my draw was more pronounced.
Feel: Nice feeling but definitely not forged soft. When I hit shots pure, it felt really good. Even miss hits felt good.
Distance: Hard to tell due to the conditions but I'd guess they were similar to other irons I have. The lofts are pretty standard so no surprise. Not nearly as long as my jacked-up Dynacraft Prophet CB irons which are crazy long.
Grips: Love the Karma "oversize" grips. They feel great.
Overall: From a limited range session, I like them. They look and feel really good. I'll take them out for a round this week and will report back. For less than $100, they are a bargain.
