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......
