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...
always wondered if David Duvals slide started with the weighted club he was promoting at his prime.  Probably will keep wondering.  Do like my Orange Whip though.
Just ordered some CTCream.  Also bought a wrap device that goes into the freezer before putting around the elbow (my doctor did recommend ice).  Will post again in the future to let others know how it all works.  I'm with you about "the knife".  Would have to be life threatening before I'd let some body mechanic cut into me.
If you look at the graphs that Erik put up on page one, the acceleration is TO the ball, not necessarily THROUGH the ball.  The key is to never DECELERATE before contact (and I think Watson used that word) because that only happens because you made it happen.  In a perfect pendulum swing max velocity happens at the bottom of the swing, naturally, unless you interfere.
