best blades of all time - Page 3

post #37 of 58

My first vote would be: Hogan Apex 1999 and second: Mizuno MP29. 

post #38 of 58

I have two favorites. Wilson Staff fluid feel and Hogan Medallions.

I would have to agree with the Mizuno mp33. its beat to shit but I still pull it out when I want to look cool

Any Titleist muscleback. Currently have 710-MB.   I also have a set of Mizuno MP-69's but they lack the comforting "thwack" sound (after impact) that I have always enjoyed in a Titleist. In the hands the mizzies and the titleist feel the same but the impact sound seems slightly different. I guess you never forget your first love---for me it was a set of Titleist Tour Model blades that I used as a junior golfer in the late 80's. Looking forward to picking up some Miura's or Scratch SB-1's someday.  Perhaps those will lead to the holy grail of blade perfection. But something tells me that a perfectly solid shot with a Titleist blade, a certain auditory quality, is what I will always associate with ball striking bliss. In spite of  Miura San's sweaty, painstaking toil at his forge.

Gauge Design by far the best blades I have when I am traveling overseas (I have a set stored in Asia so I don't have to lug a club around when I am traveling for business a3_biggrin.gif).

 

I also have Mizuno MP-68 that I use in the States and while Mizuno MP-68's are great, Gauge blades feel superior and looks cleaner.

I know this is an old, revived thread, but my favorites remain the Mizuno MP32s.

Anyone looking to sell some old blades? I'd like to buy an older set to try out and see if I could eventually upgrade to them

EBAY

not sure if going Retro is upgrading however unless you mean going to a forged blade from a GI cast cavity back, which is what I did. The Hogan Edge as most know is a perimeter weighted forged cavity back.  I used to play DCI Blacks which were a nice set of irons but not that easy to hit.

I am prejudiced, but I would say you can't go wrong with any of the Hogan's.  The APEX Plus has some good reviews. One set is a combo in that the longer irons are muscle backed and the mid to short irons are cavity back, but all are forged.  Prices anywhere from $125 and up with an occasional set under $100. Some I have seen were outfitted with Rifle Shafts. The ones I have are APEX 3.  You can also find individual clubs $12 and up. Might be a good idea to just get a 7 iron and see how you like it.

Hell yes! I cannot come up with a reason to upgrade to newer clubs. I love these irons so much. Great looking and still one of the best feeling irons I've hit.

They are fine, if you can hit them. Price is not bad.

Hogan Apex PC's. Amazing feel, great shafts if the #4 shafts are fitted. The E wedge was a preat PW which was amazing of tight lies.

post #53 of 58
Have I said it already? Hogan Apex,

True blade. No offset. Shaft 1/2" shorter than ordinary clubs these days. Face angle 2 degrees weaker than most clubs. Justin Leonard was using it when playing his best golf. Shame that the company couldn't make it.

Hogan's are nice but how 'bout this beauty:  

 

If only I was willing to spend $200 per club
