Cobra Fly-Z Forged and Mizuno Mp-53 are soft and forgiving.
1971-72 Wilson Staff Dynapower "Buttonback" irons with original Ultralite shafts in flex of choice are true buttery butterness. Wilson Staff Fg17 irons are actually made of butter. Fg59's are so buttery you'll slip right out of your stance and fall flat on the butter covered t-box. Your new Nike shirt will be all stained with the excessive butter. Your wife will wonder why you've come home after your round all greasy and covered with butter. She'll understand when you tell her you've been playing with old Staff blades....
Mizuno are always great. Yonex are soft too, especially with the insert.
Those X-BL are gorgeous. I'd love to get my hands on a set. Wow.
PXG GEN 2 for sure!!
If you haven’t hit a raw Kyoei forging , you haven’t hit the softest. Look for Vega or Yururi brands for their most known irons. You can’t imagine how soft. You have to hit them to believe it.
How do you find your Blueprints off the face compared to some of the better JDM or Mizuno forgings?
They are quite similar to the solid Miura feel. But in my opinion neither miura nor blueprint is soft.
i was spoiled on a raw set of Vega early. Then another raw set of vdc-01 Vegas. When hit middle it feels like a Balata ball hit with a pillow. Not kidding.
I agree re: Miura feel. Very dense and powerful feeling. Extremely addicting and satisfying but not at all similar to the marshmallow feeling you get with something like the MP20. I'm not sure which I prefer to be honest...
I actually prefer dense to butter. More Miura less Mizuno. Like Titleist's and Hogan's too. Love a bit of "rifle crack" to impact. Mac-Cobra's have that in spades, so do older Hogan's. Think highly of Endo made clubs too. 99 Apex, VR Pro's & FG 59 are all exceptional feeling clubs. I'm a big fan of dowel embedded irons. 681's probably last OEM offering to have them, rate very high with me. I'm re-shafting several sets this winter, they will all get hickory dowels even the TP 2000's which are TN87's with champagne chrome finish. Guess I'll get dense butter then, lol.
The Bridgestone Tour B X-CB are the best feeling irons I have ever played with the chunk of mass directly behind the sweet spot. My old Mizuno MP 64s would be the runner up.
FG62's and 588MB's to throw some curve balls in there
Miuras (cb57) paired with a modus shaft=pure butter. Its a soft feeling head that produces a solid thud at impact.
You have a good eye for irons Balls Deep. I had a look at those as well after reading Easyyy's description, they do look fantastic.
here are some of my favorite blade irons, some newer and some older
The BEST feel IMO .. by quite a margin, is the first set listed:
Bridgestone j15 mb's
Mizuno Mp37, Mp33
Ping blueprints, s55
Miura tournament blades
Mizuno MP-5. I've tried Miuras and they're overrated.
cobra s3 pros.
Bridgestone J15 mb
This topic really needs to be divided into JDM and USDM. It's not fair to expect USDM to compete.
USDM: Callaway (although admittedly, I haven't tried a lot of USDM)
X Forged 13 and Nike VR pro combos are the softest i have hit. Was shocked by the nikes as I was expecting nothing special and was blown away by the feel of them. Have had a few Mizuno's, mp64 being my favourite but not overly soft for me.
Mizuno is a Japanese company. Epon is just Endo's house brand, they provide forgings to many other OEMs.
This is so subjective. One man's butter is another man's margarine.
I wonder what irons feel the most like cream cheese?😉
The TM P770's feel real soft to me.
And then there's Velveeta. 😂
MP4s are soft but also have ‘feel’ - you know exactly where the ball is going at impact. My Mac MT Pro-Cs are softer but not necessarily better butter.
I've never been able to detect these differences in softness that ohers talk about. No matter what irons I'm playing they feel good when I hit them out of the middle, and kind of crappy when I don't.
Whether JDM or USDM, its about the process and material used by each OEM to make club heads. No, we don't need two categories. Titleist and Callaway and other OEM's have had certain club heads made in Japan and China, and and famous Epon has some made in Thailand. A while back Titleist had blades made in Japan for Tiger and other tour players. It's not the company name but the chosen materials, desired process and price, all of which dictate which facility on account they are limited in number.
We can't argue what's butter and what isn't as "Butter" is completely subjective. Our Feel which is based on the touch sensors in our hands and skin detect vibration intensity. Touch is a perception resulting from activation of receptors in the skin or fingers, throat and tongue, toes, and many other areas across the skin surface. Pressure receptors respond to impact, brushing, sustained grip, and vibrations, etc. Sound adds to the measure by determining level and depth of tone.
Also we know medically, when those touch and pressure sensors in the hands are damaged, feeling in one's hands are not acute as the sensors in another persons undamaged hands. A mechanic or fireman that uses tools or hauls equipment daily is more likely to have damaged sensors than a surgeon that wears two-golf gloves when playing golf. Simply speaking, what someone thinks is butter may very well be boring margarine. 😂
