Re: Will blade irons improve your swing?Most people will be able to play with any set of clubs as long as they give them enough time. There may be individual differences from person to person and club to club. Taking a few swings with each model on the range or at your local dealer is not enough to base a buy on, in my opinion. How a club feel at first may be different from how you'll play them later on. Playing with all the sets for a while won't do either, if you're not full of cash.
You could pick the club that feel the best during a test and end up with one that doesn't work as good some months later. This is of course impossible to predict, so you'll just have to rely on reviews and those swings you get to do at the dealer.
If you play long enough with blades, you'll learn to like them. If you play long with CB, you'll also learn to like those. At the same time you got lots of brands to choose from, making it even harder.
If you want to try blades, go ahead, but expect them to be difficult. It could give you that extra in the beginning to help you adapt. If you have the opportunity to test a set of blades, could be any brand for some time, that being from a friend or a dealer, it would give you a good idea as to how the clubs will work for you and your swing.
Some can pick up blades after playing with CG for years and play them great, others may need time and practice to get them down. If you've played for a long time, trying blades out won't hurt you, you could even try just buying one club and play around with it for some time. As I've read dozens of reviews on all kinds of golf clubs, the thing that stuck is that everyone is different. One may give a set 5 stars, the next one give it 1 star since he can't hit them well.
If you find a set of blades that has got good reviews, like Mizuno or Titleist, you know many players like them, it's up to you really if you wan't to try them out. They may give you a great time, or they may disappoint you. Just don't expect your game to improve, a new club won't magically fix your swing. What you should expect is to have some trouble in the beginning, but giving them enough time to learn how you must work with the club.
It's commonly accepted that blades are less forgiving, but give you greater pleasures when you really hit them well. Then it's all up to each and everyone if that sounds like something they want to try out. If you don't play that much, don't plan on going further down in hcp, I wouldn't recommend blades, they may work, but with the reviews of others, the chances of the clubs giving you a hard time are bigger than with fi. CB.
