dont get me wrong im sure the dimes are probably much more like quarters or nickels but I would still consider that impressive butttttt im a 16 handicap so I strive for a silver dollar.

The silence is deafening!!! Granted the pros would never use the same set of irons long enough to create a "brown spot", but you can see the wear pattern on their irons/wedges fairly easily on TV.....most of them resemble a small triangle - nothing near this "dime sized brown spot" the OP is referencing....

While playing yesterday, I noticed a slight burn spot smack dab in the middle of my 15 yr old Ping Anser putter. Cross my heart and hope to die. Yes, I am THAT good.

Have you been putting cigarettes out on your putter again?

Shhhh...you're giving the OP ideas, and then Shorty will be forced to leave!

Getting ready to head out of work for the holiday.  Any chance I'm going to see that pic before I leave?

Cuban Monte Christos, actually - but save that for a discussion about matches.

There is only so much Titleist and Nike can do do differentiate in such a compact design. The only ones that would feel and possibly perform differently are Scratch Blades (1018 Carbon Steel) or maybe a custom Muira Forged iron.

I got Titliest 712 AP1s to help me with my game. I joined a country club and have been playing 6 days a week. The AP1s were too hot off the face and I would miss greens or spray 100 yards into a hazard. I decided to take the plunge and get fitted for Titleist 712 MBS 3 thru P.

I love them, but I took the 3 out of my bag and use a 7 wood. Since I can practice alot I now hit my 4 iron MB accurately. I had to make some adjustments but I found having a proper strong grip to be helpful in striking the ball down the middle. With the MBs I get the magic bounces and hit greens. If I do miss hit a shot its not spraying 150 yards less. It's a personal preference and I found I love the feel of blades. There's nothing like feeling the shot. I know right away if I struck the ball well. I can't doubt myself when looking down at the tiny 4 iron head. If I do then shit happens. Golf is mental and I use what I think will work for me. I believe and I'm happy I made the switch. It's constant work......

I play the 710 CB's. I can command the same draw that I could with the Nike Blades and the 712 MB's. I just get that little more forgiveness that I need from the rough. You should consiter the CB's

I noticed your playing a little older set of Titleist irons. Just as a suggestion the 710 and 712 CB's are awesome.
I'm a 5 HP and I would say I cam hit it on a sliver dollar and still hit the green. They have a ton of forgiveness combined with a classic look

Really?  So why are you a 4hc?   Do you have no short game?  I'm curious.........LOL

 

I don't mean to bust your chops, but something isn't passing he sniff test.   If you strike the ball that well, you must have no game beyond the full iron shots to be a 4hc.
