Why play a split set with blades? And why are we drawn to blades??
I play off a 5. Its the type of 5 that when I hit driver in play I can score but I tend to lose my strokes with my driver being in an unplayable (read: can't go after the green) position. I save my score with very rarely 3 putting.
I play Apex Pro 19s. I like them. I really like the look behind the ball. When they're caught right out of the center in the long irons they feel powerful. And the short irons look fantastic at address.
And yet, I want blades. I have played the Apex MBs and they are stunning. Feel like butter, super easy to flight high or low (I don't really do a ton of huge left-right shot shaping yet, still working that into the rotation). And behind the ball they look just as forgiving as the Apex Pro 19s.
But, except at the low end of the bag, we know the blades are not as forgiving. Which begs the question, should I split set? And if so, why?
I sort of just want to buy the blades in 5-PW and then swap out the 5-6 when I'm not feeling great with the Pros. But why? Ugh...
Can someone either talk some sense into me? Or at least just talk me off the ledge here? Really.. the answer I need to make this "logical" is Why play a split set?
