Titleist ZM. Err, because it was the one that I hit the best last summer when I was looking for a new set of irons. There are a lot of good blades out there. I wouldn't mind getting a set of 695MB's either. I'd really like a set of Scratch SB-1's too. Chances are I'll end up with a set of those sooner or later.

Mizuno mp33 because they look great, play great and feel great, just like butter! I have played the mp33 for about 2 years and also have played my best golf this year shooting under par 3 times. ( -3, -1 and -1) lastly they are reasonably price below is an example of a set that sold for under $166 including shipping.

I played the 5-pw and just started to put the 4 iron back in my bag. I would buy another set in a second.

I play the Dynamic Golf Regular which are 127 grams and would like to find Nippon shaft that run under 100 grams per shaft.

Mp 33 sold on ebay for under $163

My favorites would be the MP-33's and the Titleist 690.mb's. both are easy to hit and have forgiveness that a lot of blades do not have

The nicest looking ones in my honest opinion must be the new Victory Red's, they just look INSANE.

I agree on this. You are right the mp 33's and the titleists are very forgiving for blades.

mp 37's trust me... often over looked by the 33's, but these are just as good if not better. they look great and perform as well. they are also good if you have a high ball flight.

I'd have to go with the Titleist 660's... much more forgiving than you would expect.

I have a set of MP-14's that I love, but I don't know if that would qualify as modern. I just love the entire Mizuno line-up. Although, I think that the Miura blades are as nice a looking iron as I have ever seen. I have yet to hit them though.

I really like the look of the mp-37's, if I were good enough for them I would probably play them.

Toss up between MacGregor 1025 V-foils b/c they are just a great old traditional style and feel solid when hit and the new Niki V's which are just down right SEXY IMO.

Like the mp-33's .. but, old Apex PC's blades are the favorite. Never hit Titleist 690.mb but they sure look beautiful.

    • Yep! I have both a FJ jacket and pants in rainwear that I bought years ago. I don't use them very often so they've lasted a long time. But, they're heavy and hot! They were made before GoreTex and other waterproof, breathable fabrics. My advice? Get the absolute best you can afford! They will last you a long time, they will keep you comfortable, they will be light, and they won't impede your swing very much.
    • Thanks for all the responses. I think this boils down to the context of the situation. I had two of the foursome busting chops about hitting out of order on previous holes. Then the first time it was mildly inconvenient for them to wait, the holed out just as i hit the green. Mind you.  This wasnt an "adventure" hole.. I hit the green on stroke 5 because of a flub shot that went about 10 ft. And an errant approach that left me about 10 yards short of the green. In any other case I agree that its perfectly fine to hit when ready, but not if you complain about hitting out of order. I guess to paint the picture, one whipped a club on the 3rd hole due to sculling a shout out of the bunker.. on another hole had one of them walking towards green right in front of my approach.. he nicely moved about 3 yards to the right as i asked him to move. As karma would have it, i hit the shot straight at him and nearly hit him.. these were friends of mine.. so a lesson learned to play golf with different friends..
    • Picked one up and checked it out in a store the other day. First thing I noticed about it was how heavy it was. Reminded me of when I went out for the HS golf team, and the coach had a Driver with a solid steel head on it. He advised us that we were NOT to hit drives with it! It was for warm up only. Being as heavy as it is, I think the main benefit to it might be that it slows your transition from backswing to downswing. There's a whole lot of guys who could use that!
    • OK, this kind of clears things up for me. I thought you might have been trying to take close ups of clubheads impacting golf balls. In that case you'd need something numbering in the several thousands of fps! If all you need is to look at swings I'd say anything the budget allows should suffice. Consider the 960fps system mentioned. If a golf swing takes about I second, at a playback rate of 30fps, that gives you a swing video of 32 seconds in length. Plenty long enough to see the golfer's bodily motions. Considering how small the clubhead will appear when videoing the entire golfer, I don't know that fps is the main consideration. It could be pixel count and the quality of the lenses. This reminds me of my "audiophile" days when cassette tapes were all the rage. I had a BIC deck that could record at 7 1/2 ips (inches per second), and an Audiovox car player that could play back at that speed. The sound quality was amazing! You were putting the same amount of info into twice as much space! There was so much more room!
    • Wondered how and where achievements came from. I've broken par,  ( handicap is +3) 2 eagles on par 5's so far this year Hole in one 2 years ago on vacation in Arizona at Karsten ASU course.  My first one.
