Comparison of Current Blades
I recently went and got fit for some irons. I hit a bunch of different blades with the same shaft so it allowed me to really compare heads. Below are my findings. Keep in mind, other than the data points, everything else is my personal preference which may be completely different from yours. Feel and look are obviously really subjective. I currently play to a +1 handicap and these were all 6 iron shots.
All stats are averages
PXG 0311t (Gamer)
Ball Speed: 134.3
Dispersion (STD Dev): 5.4
Feel: I actually like the feel of the PXG irons. It has a bit of a firmer feel but it definitely feels like it comes off hot. Which may be why I struggle with consistent distances.
Looks: These look like a standard CB irons but with a blade like finish. I like the screws on the back. Make it look mean and tough
PXG 0311t Gen 2
Ball Speed: 138.5
Feel: Kaboom Baby! These feel like rocket launchers. Everything feels insanely hot and obviously shows in the distance. Similar overall feel to Gen 1, maybe a touch softer.
Looks: They look the same to me as the Gen 1.
Honma Rose Proto
Ball Speed: 136.2
Feel: Love the feel of these. They are responsive and I feel like I can do anything with them. I wouldn't say "butter" soft but I honestly want my irons to be a touch responsive
Looks: I think these look pretty cool. They are obviously not a traditional look but still very good looking.
Titleist 620 MB
Ball Speed: 134.4
Feel: Overall not my favorite. They were less forgiving than most of the other irons and just could never get that feel I like. Feel good when struck perfectly but even a slight miss is pretty penalizing. They're blades so it's to be expected.
Looks: Such a classic look. Maybe my favorite of all the irons. So clean and basic. They didn't overdo it with nonsense.
Ball Speed: 134.5
Feel: Best feeling iron of the bunch. Gives you that pure feeling when you strike it. I felt like I knew exactly what the ball was doing when I hit it. Taylormade knocked this one out of the park. However, not very forgiving. Much like the Titleist, you have to be so precise.
Looks: Also has a really classic look. Feels like there's no offset which I like.
Ball Speed: 133.8
Feel: Shockingly these felt great. Didn't know what to expect from a Ping blade but they were really good. I felt that I could work the ball both ways pretty easily.
Looks: I think they are pretty good looking. Not your traditional look but definitely a traditional "Ping" look. Nice and thin top line too.
Ball Speed: 129.1
Feel: Hit these terribly. Numbers are screwed because I went on a hunt for the sweet spot and never really found it. Maybe I was getting tired or they're just not very forgiving but I didn't agree with these.
Looks: Longer heel to toe. Not my preference and obviously couldn't get comfortable with it.
Mizuno MP20 MB
Ball Speed: 136.2
Feel: Numbers were all pretty good but these didn't wow me. I was most excited to hit these because of how amazing the feel was supposed to be but they just were not my cup of tea. Past Mizunos are definitely "softer" feeling to me.
Looks: Pure as it gets. So classy and understated. Nice thin top line. Definitely inspires confidence.
Miura MC 501
Ball Speed: 135.6
Feel: These are Miuras... Do I need to say more? They felt great. Loved how pure it felt striking them. More forgiving than I thought.
Looks: At first I thought they were a bit box-ish looking but then I realized it looks like there's a bunch of offset. Not sure if that's the case but I did not like the way they looked. I prefer my blades to have as little of offset as possible.
Ball Speed: 136.7
Feel: These shocked me. They felt awesome. One of my favorites. Just a nice soft and smooth feeling. When you hit them, you feel like you're pounding them.
Looks: Classic look. Not a major Callaway fan overall but I loved what they did here. Super nice.
Favorite Iron: Honma (Surprise!)
Best Looking: Titleist 620
Best Feel: P7TW
Most Forgiving: PXG 0311t
Least Forgiving: Titleist 620 or P7TW
