Lefty blades

Recommended Posts

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 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.

"Loft for loft, length for length, and shaft for shaft, the ball will go the same distance when hit on the sweet spot regardless how old the iron."

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.

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