Which Set Should I Rebuild w/ MMT 125 TX?

I've been having some shoulder and wrist issues, and am now using that as an excuse to rebuild a set with the 125TX shafts I've wanted to try forever.  The question is, which set should I rebuild?  The options are:

 

Miura 1008 Black Ox

Epon AF-302

Miura 1957 Baby Blades

 

Before everyone chimes in with "Baby Blades LDO" - I'd like to actually play this set for a while, and have been on a mission to lower the cap.  While the BBs are a ton of fun, they're probably not the smartest option.

 

I'm leaning towards the 302s, as I like the buttery softness, but the black out look of the 1008s could be pretty slick as well (and at the end of the day - they're basically the exact same iron).

 

What do you think?

Try forever LOL. 
go for it regardless 

 

"Forever" may be relative 😝 

 

They're on order already.  I just can't quite decide which heads to put them in (or which BB&F ferrules to use)

 

Part of me wants to get one of the sets done in 2-tone copper, but that gets a bit ridiculous and I've heard mixed things about the Golf Garage guy.

I'd go with the 1008, none blacker! 👍

Any reason why?  Seems like you have some solid experience with the 120TX, and would love to get your thoughts.  I've read through J13's thread, and would love to get your take.

 

I prefer the shape of the 1008s as the 302s are a bit rounded.  However the 1008s seem to be a bit higher and spin a touch more.

 

Currently playing PX 6.0, but speed has increased quite a bit since being fitted (Driver is ~115 +/-3 mph).

 

What's your experience been like?

As you can tell from my signature I am partial to Miura, at least some of their stuff from a few years ago. Having said that, I prefer the 302 to the 1008, purely from how they fit MY game. I have a college player I play with at times who has these in 3-PW and he has recently switched from Modus 120X to MMT 125TX after trying mine. So when we finished shafting his, I tried them (of course) and dammit, they are really a solid iron and the feel is as good as advertised. Plus the 302 reminds me of the Bridgestone J40 which is a first cousin of the Tourstage Z101 which is the BEST feeling iron I have ever hit. I would seriously consider some Z101 4-7 irons with MMT-125TX if I could find some new heads. So, nothing against the Miura but the 302's work and feel better for me and the 125TX just makes them even better.

Love it.  The thing I'm going back and forth on is how each head will interact with the MMTs in terms of feel. 

 

I did another hour of testing 6 iron vs 6 iron today and the 1008s are  a much firmer impact, while the 302s are much softer (though the 1008s have Oban CT-115s while the 302s have Modus 120s in them).

 

I'm also debating getting BOS copper treatment on them since - why not.

 

How has the MMT feel in your 57s?  How was that different in your friends 302s?

They feel like the soft-stepped X100's they replaced, only 'tighter'. I can't ever see me going back to a steel shaft and you know how I feel about the MMT-125TX.

 He went from hard stepped 120X to the MMT 125 TX straight in and he says they play "as firm but feel softer". He gained 4 yards, 3 feet in height, and a hair less spin.
