Anyone combo S55 & Blueprints?

Have been gaming my S55's for 7 years now and had no real plans to change anything there, but have an opportunity to buy some BP's in mint shape for 7-W.

 

I had my S55s bent ever so slightly strong in the 4-6, and my S55s weakened a touch 7-P, essentially matching the blueprints, so loft-wise I shouldn't see much difference.  Not sure there's much to gain here other than some shiny new sticks to replace my aging S55s (especially the most used ones), but has anyone tried this combo with good result?

I am a fan of blended sets. If the lofts work, bonus. I bent my CB's 1* weak to match the 4* gap in my blades and love them.

 

If course I loved them so much I went full blade, but they are just so pretty.

Chiming back in, I bit the bullet and have the blueprints in 7-PW now combo'd with my 4-6 S55'S.  I actually had my S55's in the same irons weakened lofts a tiny bit, and the lofts match up right on the blueprints.  These things are just easily as playable in these irons and imo they actually blend very well with the s55.

 

My only issue with them now is that they are blue dot (1 up) and I'm an orange dot (2 flat) guy.  I decided to try them anyways but yes I am definitely noticing the overly left flight tendency and I think this is why they've also been flying slightly longer, with the extra draw spin.

 

With that being said, and with the short enough season already here, sending them back to ping for a lie adjustment would leave me without them for approx 5+ weeks....with these being fully forged would anyone see any issues bending these in a traditional way via bending bar and jig?

Hey, did you end up bending the BPs?  My response is that there is no problem bending BPs.  Just buy some orange paint to fill the little dots!

Interested in this as playing s55 and haven’t found anything to replace. Seriously considering Blueprints, but would want something different in 4&5 iron. Only option I really like is keeping the s55 in these and be able to swap the 3 iron in and out depending on course.

i59  or i525 long irons should look really clean going into BP. Though imo i59 will be better

Had mine adjusted, I watched the fitter as he bent them, easy as pie. He could not believe how easy they were to bend. Way softer he said compared to bending my Callaway Legacy Blacks and Epon 302's. Who would have ever thought that...

I did have them bent back then and have been playing them combo'd with the s55 4-6 with no issues in gapping whatsoever.  The blueprints are very playable in the scoring irons and I absolutely love the look, shape, and feel.

 

The i59s in the long irons would make a for a really beautiful combo set, will just need to decide if I want to fork over the cash as there is absolutely nothing wrong with my long iron s55's at the moment

I played the S55 4-7 and BP 8-P for almost two years and had zero complaints. Contemplating going back to this combo with a MMT 125TX re-shaft during the winter.
