Best looking irons ever - Blades and GIs/Cavity Backs


Recommended Posts

I have a few that I'll throw out there, but I think it'll be cool to see people's thoughts on both blades and Game Imp. irons. Here's mine -

 

Blades - Titleist 710 MB - I know that they're fairly new, but these are classic MB's with a chrome finish that are solid sticks to boot

 

GIs - Tough call here, but it came down to Callaway x-20's vs. TM RACs - I have to go with the RACs. Not too busy of a badge in the cavity and pretty sleek.

 

Thoughts?

For the GI, I'd say Mizuno Mx-23s. For the Blades... to pick just one would be an insult to so many. However, these are absolutely gourgeous. I stole the picture off of some thread on here... dunno whose it was, but I fell in love with these clubs!!!

 

 

 

Others would be mp-14,mp-29, mp-33, and mp-37. All gorgeous muscleback blades. And then there's the Wilson FG-59s!!!!!!!man_in_love.gif I can't just pick one!!!!!!!!

Titleist 710 MBs get my vote...classic look, thin topline, beautiful set of sticks. Has Titleist ever really made a bad looking set of blades (besides the ZMs)? The 660s, 690s, 695s, all beautiful

Really like those Vegas. And the Scratch. I would love everything about the Miuras, except that the Miura logo (that laurel wreath-looking thing) doesn't do it for me.

most blades are going to look good to any golfer 99% of the time, but the most recent ones out on the market currently that catch my eye are the MP68/titleist MB/Scratch SB-1's.

game improvement is where companies can really hit the nail on the head or completely miss with regards to looks, but ill go against the grain and say i like the nike pro cavity.


this also got me thinking....why do game improvement irons always have some kind of crazy, over-the-top graphics/colors in the cavity?

I have only seen pics but wilson staffs new FG tour v2's are the best looking players cavity backs i have ever seen,2nd would be the original FG tours. For blades i dont know how anybody can say anything looks better than old W/S blades from back in the day,FG-17's,51's,dynapowers,etc.etc. I know,i know i am a w/s fanboy and there are alot of great looking blades out there but,none look better than those.

I don't have images but the Mizuno MP 32's are a paragon when talking about forged muscle-back irons. just simply perfect.

Those are nice, but I could never get past my opinion that the cut-muscle was entirely a gimmick and the evidence is how long it lasted.

cavity backs got to go with the x24 hot!:rolleyes: China_Callaway_X24_Hot_Irons20101121515517.jpg

 

Seriously. Those are hideous

 

+1, threw up in my mouth a little looking at them.

 

I have a set and like the original Nike blades - simple and classic as all hell, just a little swoosh on them (the white and red paintfill is my doing, they're standard with black paintfill everywhere).

 

For the guy above saying that the 05 TPs were the prettiest cavity backs he ever saw, just got some refinished in black chrome (mine is the combo set, though).
