I've decided I want to venture into a blade style iron instead of always thinking I can't hit them. I'm a 10 handicap and thanks to 18 birdies I can finally see what I've been doing wrong.

I have the Mizuno JPX 900 now and they are fine but not much for the "feel" aspect. I'd really like to get the MP-20 SEL but not sure about the blade version 5-pw and the MMC by Mizuno doesn't come in left hand. What are some suggestions you have from other manufacturers?

Wilson's

Wilson Staffs and the MP20's are my two favorites but every major oem makes a great blade.

I'm a righty but I play the P7MB and have to say I could not be happier.  Luckily TM finally decided to make a lefty version!

Wilson is LH friendly.  Mike Weir only played with Wilsons most of his amateur career and in the first years as pro because they were one of the few OEMs that offered LH Blades.

you could try the new jpx 21 tours SEL.  Or even give the cobra cb/mb a run.  I know the mizzy jpx tours are not blades but i think you would get all the feedback you wanted from them. i am fit for a the tours on Tuesday. I tried the mp sel blades but I feel like i get a little more forgiveness in the tours and the feel is pretty close between them. The feedback on mishits/ non middle strikes is there.

It depends what look and feel you prefer. There are pretty big differences from brand to brand in terms of feel. Titleist feels more “solid/firmer” to me. Callaway Apex MBs are the softest to me. I think it also depends how you interact with the turf. Wilson’s and Mizunos are awesome for me as I’m a bit on the steeper side. I would suggest hitting everything you can and go with what you like best.

p7mbs look real crispy

Not the best feeling though... kinda clanky. I found that the p7MCs feel softer.

I have hit 

 

690mb

710mb

MP32

MP68

Adams MB2

Nike Vapor 

FG62

 

 

FG62 and MP68 were the best feeling, but I liked the smaller size of the FG.

 

Nikes were AMAZING too but the leading edge was a tad sharp for a digger like me

Not entirely a blade but t100 is very thin and packs tech like the mmc. MP20 SEL is a very good iron as well. Taylormade, Titleist and Callaway all have lefty pure blades as well. 

TS3 8.5 Ventus Blue 7x or ZF 60TX

Ping G410 17 degree Ventus Blue 9x

Callaway UT 21 bent to 19 KBS Proto 105X

SM8 50 Project X 6.5 
SM7 54 Project X 6.5 

Taylormade Hi-Toe 60 Project X 6.5

Piretti Cottonwood II or Scotty Newport 2 w/ Stability Shaft

I played the Titleist 716 MBs for a season a few years back.  Loved them, especially the turf interaction.
