I like the look and feel of MB/blade, the small head size makes me concentrate on the shot at hand. I can't stand the look and size of SGI and GI irons. I can't hit an off set club, I hit behind the ball. Even a 2mm off set in the mid irons messes me up, So I'm looking at three sets !) Cobra FLY-Z Pro, $460 cdn,( great shape) they would need to be re-shafted and grips. 2) Fourteen golf FH-1000, $550 cdn (awesome shape, only used for2-3 rounds) has my spec shafts and grips. 3) MIURA blade, $760 cdn (good shape, used for two years) shafts are my spec but need to be re-griped. If you were in my position, what set would you buy? I would like to buy all three but my wife reminded me that we have been married for 33 yrs and would I like to make it to 34? so one set it is.

The reason I asked is that we all have an innate sense of what we like.  You are going to make thousands and thousands of shots with whatever clubs you choose.  Pick something you like enough to not blame for every unfortunate outcome.

It's always native North American, never the arrow. I play with blades now, I only played 12 rounds last season ( first back in 8-10 yrs) went from 124 first round to 86's my final two rounds with no lost balls (a first) I think my ball striking with the blades is coming along good. The blades I have now are cast and I want to try forged.

I don't think the manufacturing process is important.  Yeah an old set of Mizunos feel softer than a set of Pings but what does that matter in the long (18 hole) run?  I play an 8 year old GI set; because I know what to expect.  Clubs are personal.

I've hit the Cobra and my boss has the muira .  Muira are great but small sweet spot.  The Cobra was a bit easier to hit....felt great too.  I didn't hit them with the same shaft but I'd opt for the Cobra.

Only thing is your case is the cost of a reshaft...

Fourteen makes a really nice club but as stated above, what fits your eye? Have you had the opportunity to hit them? 

Sorry for the delay responding, hockey tourney, I won't be able to hit any before purchase.

    • Day 356 The holes in my net have become unmanageable, and I've ripped holes in the target cloth blocking the holes in the net now too. While I wait for my warranty replacement (not sure how Rukket earns money considering all the nets I've been through), I just hit some 50% speed 5-irons with the feeling of the club head moving before the handle to start transition, and tried to keep the trajectory low to hit an integral part of the net.
    • When you missed that one foot putt did you tell him your name was Bill Buckner?  😁
    • That's a great hat! I have one just like it, plus various other Red Sox, Patriots, and Bruins hats. I played with a Yankees fan one day while wearing a Red Sox hat,and I told him that he was a very lucky man because he could look at my hat for four hours.
    • View this round on GAME GOLF Very wet, cartpaths only. Plugged drives all day. Played something that kind of resembled golf. Not going to bother analyzing anything since it's December 3rd. Was just happy to get out on a nice course. Highlights of the day were making birdie from a penalty area on #9 and the twisting sand cart paths I drove golf cart rally on.
    • I doubt you were actually swinging slower. Did you have any clubhead data?
