I would put my money on a modern set of Miura blades being the best blades of all time.

Without a doubt MacGregor's Muirfield Customs. Forged in the USA by Hoffman with a true copper underlay (rather than nickel like today's irons), they are the softest clubs I have ever hit. It's too bad Hoffman doesn't make golf clubs any more because the quality of their work surpasses anything I have ever seen.

The new Miura MB 5003 for Japan issue is really receiving rave reviews as the best Miura blade ever. Made for the Japanese market but you can check it out and buy it at Tourspecgolf. Best source for Japanese gear.

Well, i've been trying out blades for the last 2 months in order to buy a set, and my personal top 3 are as follows:
3.) Titlest 755i
2.) Taylor Made RAC TP/MB
1.) Mizuno MPXX (57 or 60) <--to me they felt the same

I went ahead and purchased the Taylor Made's a few days ago because (1) I felt very comfortable with either 3 (they were all close in feel and playability) and (2) I didnt want to break the bank and got them for a great price. It's my first set of forged clubs so I figured i'd use these for the next few years and then hopefully get the latest and greatest in 2010 or 2011...

I just started to play with the Macgregor Jack Nicholas Muirfield 20th edition for few months, it did not improve my swing but improved my concerntration / focus throughout the shot and that somehow made me score better!! It's really old set but when I got them, they're practically new!

It's got shorter shaft and weeker loft compared with my KZG Forged Cavitiy II but I'm really getting to enjoy this set and hope my score keeps improving. Gas_can, do you have ay info regarding the spec. of the set? Last time I bought them to a club fitter, they didnt have a clue.

yamhang,

They are significantly different specs than today's clubs. They were made back in the day when golf balls spun like the dickens and getting the ball in the air wasn't as big of a challenge. The specs are based off a 50 degree wedge going up in four degree increments from there. The five iron is an inch shorter than today's standards I believe at 37 inches, add and subtract in half inch increments from there. Great set of clubs, I'm glad to see that I'm not the only old goat on this board who hasn't forgotten about some of the old classic clubs.

Mizuno MP-32 irons are the best that I have hit. The most consistant soft feel, and clean look throughout the set, plus it won several awards from all the magazines.

yamhang,

gas_can,

Really appreciate your info regarding the club spec. and you're absolutely right about these vintage classic clubs; you see I'm no bigger hitter and my 7-iron goes about 155 to 160 but when I play with the vintage Macgregor set, I actually somehow gain 10 yards in every club (except the 3 iron). May be that is because my "hit-rate" with these forged blades are better compared with my KZG's. Dont know why smaller head with weaker loft, shorter shaft ly go further. How about some opinion from you?

Hogan Apex from 1972.

There's an answer I like to read without me having to post it. The moment I read that these were supposedly the best blades the Hogan company ever made I've been hunting for a set on ebay ever since. Finally won an auction for them last month. I didn't want to play them, but found out that the serial numbers don't match so I decided to start playing them.

I must say, I wouldn't mind trying out a set of these Miura Retro Blades . Those are HOT! Those Black Wedges look pretty sweet too.

    • I haven't seen images of the greens in question either, but I seem to recall that some time ago on the men's tour (perhaps it was in Europe?), the distinction between green and fringe was very difficult to make and they had blue dots of some kind, spaced out every so many feet, at the boundary... Either way, I can't believe so many players would be so careless if they couldn't tell where the boundary was, and that the decision to drop the first round scores was taken as a result. SMH.
    • Not a bad idea. I do the same.   Leave no matter what. "Run Forrest, run."
    • I think I will stick with my Arizona guy, or on occasion look in on Aimee Cho for different perspective.
    • Nice job! Keep up the good work.
    • Back home with the Newport Cup trophy.   Played our final points tournament today, came in 3rd and man I am beat, but I can't thank @iacas and @mvmac enough for putting on an awesome event, as well as everything else they did to make the tournament run smoothly.  And I would also like to thank all of the sponsors who provided gear, it was greatly appreciated.  Everything about this event was amazing.  And big thanks to @RandallT for doing the updating and coming in and hanging out for a couple of days, always great to see you.  For anyone who has thought about doing a video and getting selected, you should do it.  It's as much fun as I've had playing in any golf tournament.  The guys that came to play, both the blue team, @NCGolfer @DaveP043 @coachjimsc @cipher @bkuehn1952 and the red team, @Golfingdad @kpaulhus @Pretzel @phillyk @DeadMan @mcheppwere awesome guys, and to me that is what the event is about, the comradery of the guys playing.  It was just a fantastic time and I'm glad I got to meet you all and play golf with most.  And the competition was superb, everyone hit good and some not so good shots, but in the end it was so close, that we needed the challenge balls on the final day to break the tie.   Brian - Our smooth swinging elder statesman, .  Great putt, by the way, on our challenge hole.  Kyle I'll see you in Florida in January for golf and a cigar, Drew and Phil, where can I find those magic golf balls that always seem to find a way to come back out of the trees.    Dave P, my ace partner from VA, hope the IPA's were good, the golf was awesome, see you on the links soon.  And yes your par 5 15th hole is goofy but I still like playing your course.  Mike, I didn't get to play against you, but Dave P said your a pain in the tokus to play against.   Jim, how do you hit your driver so straight, every single time and when do I get to see the dance moves again? That has to be part of your next v-log.   Phil and Tyler, I hope you two still have backs when you're up there with the age of the blue team.  Dan, yes I know you're name when I can see you up close, not from across the pond from 130 yards, I'm old, can't see worth a darn.  Which by the way, the blue team's average age was about 52 and the red's was around 30.  Not sure what that means, but old guys rule.     Dave K and Nate, although we didn't get to play any golf together, throughly enjoyed hanging out with you off the course.  Thanks to all my blue teammates and to the red players that I got to play against and the ones I didn't, it certainly was a pleasure to meet you all and I hope you all had safe travels home and can't wait to see you all again on the links. -Jerry
