    She makes me smile everytime balls fly off her face. Solid feel and great ball speed for a pure blade, in fact i get ball speed to 140mph and carry 215y, only about 20y shorter than my regular driving iron (0311p 3iron), given its weak loft.

    Yep Y grind, abit more leading edge relief jst like the mb001 as they didnt do mb001 for lefties, so Y grind is the closest we have towards the mb001.

    So scramble yesterday went about as I expected. Definitely looked like I hadn’t played in 8 months save for the 9 holes. Was able to contribute some at least. We finished at 14 under and of course got blown away by an 18 and like 2 16s and 3 15s.....these are fun things and all that but there is cheating for sure.

    Not a whole set of blades but 8-P are. These were brand new when I got them. It’s between these, my beloved 17s, and my FG 100s that have graphite that are in a battle for the bag. I can’t justify the money for s NEW set, although I can easily afford them. Just makes no sense to me.🤷‍♂️

    Started with Wilson fluid feels, then Hogan Apex, moved to Accuform PTM, now make my own with Maltby forged heads. I'm 60 with a 10 handicap, and for some reason Ive always played better with compact forged heads. Did try some Mizuno cavity backs, but always went back to Accuform. Accuform made heads with 303 stainless steel. Very soft. Softer than the carbon steel. I'm very impressed with the Maltby MMB and TE models.

    I have a set of Accuform PTM 3-SW and will game 4-SW this year. I think most sets are 304 stainless and a few 303. The ones with one ring on the hosel where a ferrule would be are 304 and 2 rings are 303.
    These are true blades: flat back, no muscle. Milled faces and grooves, way ahead of their time (80's). Made in Canada.

    There's this rumor out there that if you miss the sweet spot in a blade, well, ball don't go far. I can now confirm this rumor as fact, as I have now made enough poor azz swings with MP4 to see wounded birds flailing in the air.

    However, this isn't all bad. It really does make you search a little harder for more consistent solid contact. Which I seem to have found. I am so eager to have a few more days pass to get on the golf course because if I ain't Ranger Rick, I am his first cousin. Smacking the ball. Looking for sponsors and groupies. 'bout to have a golf orgy.

    Well, in my possession now are new shaft, new ferrules and the load of weights I ordered from China to mess with the epic forged head.

    I should be excited, but after that last episode I am feeling a little meh on the whole thing....

    What do you guys think the Maltby MMB-17? Having the CG farther towards the toe is attractive. I've drank the SGI/GI Kool Aid over the years and just this year picked up a MB 710 6 iron for testing. It's not as hard to hit as many people lead on, but gross mishits are obviously an issue. I'd like to consider picking up some more traditional/classic type irons, but the big name irons are too expensive.

    I have a set of those and they are probably my favourite current blade design on the market ( as well as the Apex MB's)

    Can't go wrong with MP14s. An all time classic.
    I am actually going to play on Monday it looks like. Going to try to see how it's flying before that, today or tomorrow. And, going to give the green another cut today or tomorrow too. Picked up a couple sleeves of Bridgestone Tour B/X - Going to go with the TN87 and thinking about the wedge set up. Maybe trying something like like the 52 degree GW from the set and a raw Miura 58 and Ping Eye2 XG LW (strictly for bunkers) That Miura 58 brings me a lot of Joy, so we'll see. I don't have much need for my 3-wood at the course we're going so...

    Going to PGA Sunday, huge motivation was to see big cat live. Chance to see the iconic. Yeah, looks like that's not going to happen, WTF! If Koepka makes it a rout I'm keeping time there short, Eat drink., watch a few guys, go home.

    I'm back to using blades. My old set of 1985 Titleist Tour Models.
    They are short, and have weak lofts, but the distance is so consistent, and they are just plain straighter that the Srixons or AP2s I gamed previously.

    I'm looking for a more modern equivalent. 690 MBs or 716 MBs maybe?

    I still play my original Tour Models sometimes back in the UK. Not the sweetest feeling iron, but I'll never get rid of them.

    Hope you get better weather than what we had today. The wind was brutal. 20~30mph, with stronger gusts, and swirling all over the place. It was really hard to read the wind direction and pick the right club. Twice I hit really sweet irons only to have the wrong club, once too much and the other too short.
    Here's an example: There's a par 4 of 310 yards, usually plays downwind. Last time I played the hole there was a breeze behind and I drove the ball just over green. Today the wind was against. I hit a lovely low drive and was still 60 yards short.
    Must say, though, that modern balls are a **** of a lot easier to play in the wind than the old wound balls. The penetrate the wind more and have less lateral movement.

    About the most brand uniform I have ever had a bag in my life. Onoff bag, wedges, irons and driver...bonus Onoff points for the roddio hybrid......Only the putter and 3 wood not conforming....

    Played 18 on a half dog track. First round with them....shot 81 on a 71 course, but really I am still getting back into real grass non sim golf as so far I have a scramble and 9 under my belt before this.

    These are cool sticks. I had some really gross misses (the kind a hybrid wouldn’t save). And my driver game was overall garbage, shock, but after opening with a double on a par 5, and hitting 3 trees during the round, it was a really ugly. Only birdie came on a par 3 that I thinned crap out of an 8 and ran it up to 16ft. I have myself another 4 looks and 2 lipouts that were inside of make range but meh, putting is putting. No three putts, good speed all day and some decent chipping made for bogey being my worst damage after the opener.

    So for me it is really clear. Long game and tighten up in irons. I hit like 8 greens but only made one putt and right now I sorta have that look of one swing looks 70s and next looks 90s.

    Iron highlights:
    Drew a 5 iron to back left pin from 190 out to 15ft. Hit 2 8s to 8-12 ft that were just fantastic, 100 yard range pw into the wind flighted down knock thingys pin high, shafts feel like steel playability wise, they really do....i lost one up, but I really think it was on my. I clubbed up one and hit it and I should have Clubbed up 2 and flighted a knockdown. Same in steel I believe was same 10 yards short elevator...

    Iron lowlights. About 8 shots that look like that group of football coach looking dudes drinking 200 bud lights make in hole 16. The ugly was ugly.......I can’t even comment on how they are “forgiveness” wise to the small blades....but they softer but still miura solid...not in a better or worse way, in a different way. I like them. I hit some good shots for an unfamiliar club in current shape...
