710 MB vs. Scratch Golf Tour Custom vs. Miura Blades - Page 3

Making the switch to a forged blade made me a better golfer though. My practice became a lot more productive and my good shots became more and more consistent. It really was an eye opening experience. It's a great feeling when you put a good move on the ball and just know that you knocked it stiff. I get that feeling more often with my blades than I ever did with my i3's (even though I had a lower handicap with the i3's -- a result of practice, not equipment).


One problem that actually drove me to blades was offset. I had two types of ball flight with my Pings, slight draw and hook! I had to really work hard to move the ball left to right. With my irons now my natural flight is a tiny fade which is exactly the way I want it!

Maybe, but for an 18 year old making $8 bucks an hour that isnt a viable option lol. Thanks though!

i spent a few hours on a range with 7 irons- miura blade and titleist 712 mb.  miura one, titleist zero. the miura, its hard to find a misshit. the titleist, its hard to find the sweetspot.

Do you think that this makes sense? Really?

Look, I get what you're saying, but yes, it's entirely possible that you can "find the sweet spot" with one set of clubs but not with another.

 

For example, I once hit a bunch of six irons with a heavy shaft and then the same six iron with a lighter (the Nippon IIRC) shaft. Couldn't find the sweet spot at all with the Nippon, found it every time with the DG S300.

 

Probably not the case here, but it's possible, and Shorty, sometimes people deserve the benefit of the doubt.

Get a used set of titlist 690 mb and re shaft them to your liking then go the fitted and bent to your specs. might cost you 400 vs 1,400. I like the look of the miura 1957 baby blade but because of it's reduced size it will have reduced mass therefore will fly shorter. Im sure with it's low carbon steel it will feel great but who cares if it performs ok or just as good. I think as of 2014 the taylormade tour prefreed looks nice! This is an old thread though so id say titleist 690 mb would have been your best choice.

So right now heres how my order looks

 

3-P 710 MB 

50/08 Vokey

56/11 Vokey

58/11 Vokey

60/07 Vokey or Nike SV 60/10

Titleist 17* 910H or Taylormade 18* Rescue

 

possibly Callaway Razr Hawk Tour with Fujikura Tour Platform 26.3 stiff

 

with driver it would cost a little less than $1400

 

 

Do you really want a bounce of 7 on a 60 degree wedge?  I like a lot of bounce on my 60.  Makes it much more forgiving and usable out of the sand.  Of course my handicap vs yours might explain my preference.
