So this thread got me thinking about what I play ( TM burners ) and what kind of feed back they were giving me and if I could be improving or at least perfect my swing with a club with more feed back.
So today I stopped by the golf shop and picked up a used 6 iron titleist 690 mb forged blade.
After hitting about a 100 balls off my backyard mat into the net I think the question was asked incorrectly..... It should be ..... Why play a blade....lol
Yes of course the blade provides much more feed back and your mis hits FEEL much worse and that is cool, but here is the kicker for me. My well stuck shots are no better then with the GI
I will admit, the blades definitely look better, and I don't mean mean in a fashion sense, I mean they are more pleasing design at ball address.
I think I will keep practicing with this club and see if I can improve my swing accuracy and consistency.
edit for update..
After hitting another couple hundred shots with my test iron and finding the sweet spot it has become clear to me where the term sweet spot came from. until you hit a blade on that spot you just have not felt the pureness of a golf shot. it is truly sweet. like the ball was made from warm butter....... headed off to bay to find a full set of 690MB to practice with...LMAO
