Not sure why you're concerned about what's normal. If I got this right you've only been playing for two months, you can carry a 6 iron 200+ yards and, with the i25's, your average miss is 12 yards. I don't think there's anything normal about you. Listen to the advice of your instructor, he must be one hell of a teacher.
I'm with you on that one.  Would need a CPA to keep my score but I know I'd have a blast.
bunker hole outs, not anything memorable but I know I've had several.  Eagles, 3. all hole outs from the fairway and I remember every one.  One on a par five and two on par fours.  One from about 160 yards.
I have to believe that if you let it be known to the counter people at local muni's that you're looking for action in the "few hundred dollars" range that you'll soon have all you can handle.
Back in the early 70's I had bought a set of clubs from a place called Discount Golf that was a new chain store on the scene then.  The clubs were called MacGregor MX and I was told by the salesman that MacGregor made them only for Discount Golf.  I have no idea if that was a true statement but that's what he told me.   With these clubs having such a similar name makes me wonder if it isn't a similar situation.   Just a guess.
No one "should" get blades.  One plays or doesn't play blades because they want to or they don't want to.  No one "graduates" to blades, there are far too many touring pros that don't play them to ever think there is truth in that. The pros are as over exaggerated as the cons. As golfingdad said, there just isn't that much difference.
 So, how is the experiment going?  Just curious if you've been using them and what the results are.
I did just that last year.  Picked up a used set of 712 MB's off ebay last winter and used them exclusively during 2014.  My gross score average for the 21 rounds I played with them was a full two strokes lower than the previous year.  Because of the clubs?  No, I don't think so because my index barely moved which tells me my low scores stayed pretty much the same, just got rid of some of the big numbers that had been creeping into my game.  I did shoot a 38 on one of my...
Just ordered a sky pro swing analyzer.  very curious how much it will help in identifying my swing characteristics and if I can use the data to actually help my game.
I bought a set of 712 MB's a year ago off e-bay and they all have a serial number located 90 degrees to the right of where it says 712 in your second photo (the 7 iron).  Certainly doesn't mean they're fakes if they don't have it, hell, mine could be fakes because they do.   As David said above, if those are fakes they're the best I've seen.  They look exactly like mine.  So either we're both good or we both bought from the same forger.   Curious about the sellers...
