I would have loved it if "Blade" was just in air quotes like that. 😆

 

I've never swung either the i3 or i3-blade model irons but my recollection is that the two were essentially the same in all factors except the blade was of slightly small head size. So , a unique opportunity to play rounds of golf with each and learn which head size performs better, but I don't know if any player actually did that process.

Cleveland TL310 10.5* driver

Cleveland HB Launcher 15* 3-wood

Srixon H65  19* 3 hybrid and 22* 4 hybrid

Mizuno MP63 5 thru 9-iron

Cleveland RTX 48-52-56-64 wedges

Scotty Cameron Classic III putter

Iblade is by far the best iron I have ever played. I am a lower launch and high speed player which would typically fits into a “blade” profile for best results. But I personally do not love the look of irons with minimized top line + offset (albeit I still like a compact address look). 
 

I have been playing these setup 1weak with an i210 3 iron and cannot ever see myself changing. I switched from 716MBs 2 years ago and have since become an elite iron ball striker — that used to be my biggest area of concern! 
 

All that being said, at the end of July with mumblings of a i59 release I went ahead and ordered another 4-pw set with my modus 130X shafts (identical to gamers) to keep as my next set. 
 

TLDR... you’re not crazy!

I’ve been wondering the same about the iBlade but wasn’t sure about the forgiveness

 

Ive fallen out with my P7MC and was all ready to go for the new T100 if I can find a stock set this week (I played my best ever golf with AP2)

 

However I can get a brand new set of iBlade in DGS300 for just over 1/2 the price of the T100

 

I was concerned that the iBlade would not be any more forgiving than my P7MC but the offset on i210 bugs me

if you want forgiving heel/toe strike, iblade should be fine and better than MC, if you are talking about missing high/low not much difference 

 

i210 are in a different league, wider soles, more offset, very consistent irons but for a specific type of golfer, gamed 2 years the i200, skip de i210, fit for iblades but went back to my old mp53

I've got them with C-Tapers and something just doesn't feel right...I'm getting a bit older and the C-Tapers just require more effort to swing and the longer irons are a bit low spin...I've always played S300 in either DG or AMT and for some reason they just seem to fit my swing

 

I LOVE the head shape of the MC, I'm tempted to resift with normal MBS 120 but not sure if it's worth the hassle

 

If the pings are more forgiving in the longer irons then it may be a winner

I love my Iblades, play 4-pw in them.  I think they are still the best irons ping has ever made hands down.  I know there have been a bunch of other models come out since then.  But I still think these are the best they have ever made and continue to game them!  Also think they Anser hybrids are the best they have ever made and still play those too!
