This might seem like an odd thing to say, but I'm going to go ahead and assume that you're not trolling - that you really are a 12 handicap who needs stiff shafts in your blade irons.
Okay, have you looked at other brands of blades and narrowed it down to Titleist and Mizuno base on objective criteria, or are those just the two brands you've heard of?
I've owned a few sets of blades over the years and do not discount MacGregor. There are other great brands out there that make blades (Cleveland, Titleist, Mizuno, KZG, basically a whole bunch from Japan) and there are always some vintage sets out there (Ben Hogan, Ram, etc). If you find Titleist or Mizuno blades in good shape, they go quickly. Cheaper sets tend to be beaten up (bag chatter is a real problem with older Hogans).

what would people recommend?
I am ideally not looking to spend more than £100, and ebay seems to be the place to find them for that cheap.
I have a 12 handicap but strike the ball really well, I dont have a swing speed but I hit a 7 iron around 170yards if that helps with the advice.
Also I currently use Mizuno Pro with reg shafts. pretty sure I need to move on to stiff shafts as I hit the ball very high.
