    I wouldn't consider myself an expert as I just started bagging Miura this year but I really like the MC-501s that I am playing. They look incredible, feel fantastic, and perform wonderfully. I have a back up set of the CB-57 2i-PW which are also excellent. However, I think my favorite (just by looks alone) are the 1957 Baby Blades. I've heard about these for years and saw them in person for the first time a few months ago.. AND now I'm currently trying to hunt down a set for myself.

    Have owned a set of Miura BBs and on good strikes there was really nothing better. Gorgeous looks and feel. But they were a little too much to play regularly if you don’t put in the practice and work.

    Small blades.

    I also really like the CB202 in the long irons (2/3/4).

    My favorite is forged by Miura, but made for Daiwa, the OnOff 247 CBs. A close second is the baby blade. Best blade around as far as I am concerned.

    Funny in this demo video the guys expressed doubts about them keeping up with major OEMs then by the end after hitting, basically talked himself into playing them

    1. Baby Blades — I’m not good enough.
    2. MB001 — Still not good enough.
    3. CB57 — More playable than many think. Own a set, love them. Best solid, dense feel of the CB heads I have played.
    4. CB202 — Have tried, really like.
    5. Passing Point 9003 Straight necks — Just the right offset IMO. Underrated.

    There is a set in the bay listed by Mike’s Golf outlet. He has them listed as Tournament Blades. I picked up a set from him just like this. Listed as Tournament Blades but they are original Small Blades.

    Right now they are at BIN for $759.00 3-PW

    No expert by no means. But I did extensive googling befors getting my set and concluded CB57 and MC501 must be two of the most beautiful irons ever made. Went with the CB57 and haven’t looked back. As a bonus it’s very consistent, not too punishing on mishits, and has an absolutely addicting feel when you nut one.

    I have a set of the MC 501 copper blades. They look fantastic and really perform well. Good feel.
