    Macgregor 1025m's are a good call. That flanged sole really helped to launch the long irons.

    Original X proto's were also good, as were the mp32's. The cuts in the muscle in both models helped put the weight where you want it to aid forgiveness.

    One of my favorites for an easier to hit blade were the Snake Eyes 600b.

    Thought the mb2's were pretty good also.

    I always found the Staff fg51's not demanding for an older model.

    KZG ZO's have a slightly longer blade length which seemed to give a sweet spot a bit bigger than some.

    I had better stop there. Starting to sound like confessions of a blade addict. image/bye.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':wave:' />
    Perfect, when I started this thread, one of the main reasons was to hear your list of favourites Oldplayer. U had given someone some advise in another thread but didn't list your favourites.



    I was going to ask u in that thread, but figured why not ask everyone.



    Thx for your list Oldplayer. Still think u need to change your handle to "Not so Oldplayer" lol.

    I’m trying to remeber all of them I’ve had over the years (it’s been way too many, clubs and years!).



    I think my MP 37’s and 690 MB would probably be the two I would choose right now. They almost all seemed easy compared to my first set, Murifield 20th’s.

    The Cleveland 588 mbs (my gamers) are the easiest blades i have played. The cg is centered and lower than typical blades. The soles are a bit wider and more rounded so they don't dig as much as typical blades. They are on the small side though.

    Like many have stated on here.. Srixon z945's are very playable blades.. I've had multiple sets of them and foolishly sold them all off. I had a combo set of z765/z965 and there was nothing wrong with those either.. my buddy has those now so I can still get in a few swings with them when I want too..

    My current set of Apex MB 18's are fairly easy to strike,

    Also found my MP 5's, MP4's, MP 68"s, MP37's, MP33's, and MP29's fairly easy strike contenders




    Agree on the Apex MB, they look great too.

    I play MP-5 and definititely forgiving for a blade, dont need sweet spot 100% of the time. You definitely know when it is not a good hit but the performance loss is not too bad. MP-4, ugh, did not find that easy at all. For me if it was not pured it did not end up well. looks crazy good from address, it ended there for me.

    Many know me for my MB2 passion. I have had 11 sets..... and probably heading into my 12th set after reading this. LOL



    Adams really had something going. The added weights help get the ball up and IMO enlarge the sweet spot. They do have a bit to much offset but that can also help in many ways. Especially for someone just getting into blades.



    The only other blade easier than MB2's are United SBB Tours / Pro blades. Longer heel to toe they are SO easy to play. I have a full set if anyone is interested... image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    Any thing Srixon has made in the last 6 years or so have been fabulous with their VT soul. The blades are a touch larger than most other brand which lend themselves to be "easier" to hit or more forgiving if you dare use forgiving when describing a blade. Side note if you get a chance to try them hit the Exotics CBX blade, these really surprised me.

    easiest question that can go much pointless, most likely ending up with the answers on 'what i like the most'.

    If' you're a good ball striker with irons, then it's really splitting hairs and the choice is going to come down to what looks and feels best to the individual. Any blade is going to require repeatable and relatively sound swing fundamentals. As for "easy" that's different for different folks who I have just described. For me, I always get on well with Titleist MB's, my favorite of that lot probably being the 716 MB's that I played before shifting over the JPX 900 Tours. I found the 716 MB to be aesthetically pleasing behind the ball, and I was very confident that I would be able to hit the shot that I needed or envisioned assuming I did my part. By contrast, for some reason or another, I just haven't been able to get on with a Mizuno blade other than the MP-37. This year, I'm anticipating a move back to a blade and am head to head between the Taylormade P730 and Titleist 718 MB. The times that I've demoed them (several since November), I swing them quite well and consistently. The same occasions that I've demoed the P730 and 718 MB, I've also demoed the MP18 to lesser degree of success. Something about the way that the club looks behind the ball doesn't give me quite the same confidence as the other two. That's what blade selection really comes down to. If you're looking at blades (even as part of a combo set), odds are you have fairly sound and repeatable fundamentals. Moral of the story, find something that looks good behind the ball, feels good on solid strikes and that makes you feel confident that you can shape the shot as needed.

    I've read that the Fourteen FH1000 play easy but I haven't tried them.
    I have read the reviews on the 1000's from back in 2015?? or so. Always wanted a set but never had the pleasure. Love the satin look of those. I have some TC-910 CB's that feel fantastic, I would bet my right n-t that those 1000's are heavenly.




    They're not. They're pretty dead feeling no matter the shaft. Aesthetically, one of the most beautiful, performance wise they were very underwhelming.



    I would try a Maltby TS1 head paired with a reliable shaft. Has a fairly high MPF rating for an MB type iron.



    Snow will melt soon Stone!
    Good thing I'M not a betting man, ouch. Kinda figures something so pretty is not all it's cracked up to be. 3 dressed up as a 9. Those TS1's are worth a look. Thx KC.

    Let's flipping hope so, -39.8 C was too dang cold, -16 today, that feels like spring. Not... it will be a few months yet unfortunately.




    I'd have to disagree with this. I've played the FH1000's for most of last year and they are very forgiving for a blade and felt good to me. Are they the best feeling blade I've ever hit? No, but not a dead feeling. I was playing the newest version of it though. I know they had several ones including one that was cast.



    Another good one is the Cobra Fly Z Pro's. For some reason the King MB's didn't feel as good and weren't as forgiving as the Fly Z's. Wish I had never sold mine.

    Another one here.

    Used to play 990Bs, have blended cm 735s, MP32. I had a set of Fly-Z Pros and traded them in online last year. Just before I boxed them up, I went out and shot 77, best round since college like 13 years ago.

    I immediately started checking eBay for another set.

    I really liked the MP-33's (still play em once in a while) and the MP-5's. I can never hit a Titleist iron it's my kryptonite, no idea why. I also really really really like the Bridgestone J15MB but I don't know if those are really considered blades.




    Bridgestone J15 MBs, had them for awhile and thought they were quite forgiving for that blade design. Even the long irons got up in the air quickly. I think part of it mostly is having the right shafts.
