But best of all (and I have had almost every blade iron made) is the 1999 Ben Hogan Apex.  They have a good degree of "bounce" in the sole, and a lovely "buttery" feel.  The only drawback is that if you want to change the shafts, they take taper tip, but are of such soft steel, they are easily drilled out to 0.370" for parallel tip shafts
I have done this on my set, which comprises 2-SW, plus 54degree gap wedge.
Hi which shaft did u put in? I've got apex 4s in my set and they just feel very soft, also ball flight is very high, through I'm not quite sure if its the shaft cos also had a set of ftx apex 4 a swells they gave a very low flight too low.

Never played them but I love the high toe(flow) weighting

TaylorMade Tour Preferred TD 2,3-9 Iron Set Golf Clubs @@ TAYLORMADE @@ (i678)

 

These are the sticks I learned to play with. As I turned into an equipment junkie and the oversized clubs became the rage, I was convinced that if you could hit these you could hit anything.

 

 

 

 

 

I still have these in the basement, pull them out when I'm swinging well

Hi

As a 5H you should already know the truth about that, but consider this as a small reminder :o)

 

70% in the brain

20% in the shaft

10% in the "club"

 

Do not focus on Whatever you call Tour or Blades.... they all are different and the same in many ways...

Do you really need to play blades ? Forged irons / cavity back.... just try as much as you can and get some

that you like and feel comfy with.

 

Blades "Tour" will not in any way lower your H...as much as practicing and thinking properly on the course... because this all about the score at the end...

 

Trust your club, trust yourself, but never rely on new equipments improvements....at the end there are only very few each year, and marketing announcements are always way more impressive than scientific researches.

 

Enjoy.

 

Alexandre

So... any word from Cali? lol

PS - Golfsmith Professional Grind blades were THE best irons of ANY kind EVER. And that's not my opinion. That's objective, universal truth.

From my personal experience... Been playing for 4 years, I'm a 4 handicap. My first set I bought used for 75 dollars at a course near me in Ohio that has one of the best rated pro shops in the Midwest so equipment selection was great. They were Titleist DCI 990's and I absolutely loved them. Felt smooth when struck properly and could work the ball high, low, left, right. Last year I bought a set of Mizuno Mp-32 with only two rounds used on them for 200$... I really like these clubs. I've been more consistent but for some reason lost some distance. I'm ok with the loss in distance and gaining consistency and precision. I think distance was a pride thing when I first started playing, and I still get about 160 out of my 8 iron with the mp-32s...

My point is that different clubs will have different advantages and disadvantages for everyone. Its nice to have this forum so you can have an info base to use when considering clubs, but i think the most important thing is to try any set out before buying, and try multiple sets. You might think you love a set until you try another set and REALLY love that one lol...
