I started with blades in 1985 as there was little else around unless you could afford ping. My second set that year was Ben hogan apex 2 from the 70s. I got pretty decent then gave up golf for 20 years. When I returned I got some big berthas could not stand em so went back to hogans ( which I kept) still no good then got some lynx predator handicap went from 21 to 15 in six months.
I got a set of mizuno tzoid pro 2 and handicap dropped to 11. I now have set of titliest zm forged and I absolutely love em. Yes a bad shot is bad but I think you don't have to be pro or near pro standard to enjoy blades.In short if you like the look of them behind the ball and through the ball then stick with blades or cavity whatever you fancy.
I personally do not think any club will improve my game it's about being comfortable and sticking with what you've got and like. I like blades so I use em despite fellow gofers saying they are "only for low handicaps" which I hear all the time.
What do you use or try?
So I wanted to get people's opinion on bladed irons. Is there a point anymore to use blades? Or does today's technology make them obsolete? I know blades are hard to hit and if you don't pure them every time it's going to hurt you. But say for someone who does hit the ball on the center of the face 99% of the time, are they really that much better? I forget what irons he was using but I know a while back Luke Donald wasn't even using Mizunos MP-4s, he was using the set a step down. For someone his caliber you would think he could hit the ball with a dime welded to a shaft. But oh boy are they such a beautiful sight behind a golf ball!
Yes; if anything, I need to fill a gap that still exists between my PW (Ping G10, 46*) and the 52* in terms of distance. 50-54-58 is also appealing, especially since it would give me a choice of grinds as well as lofts. The downside is cost; that's $450 in clubs at retail, and the SM6 is still to new to have decent used prices.
