So,... blades are hard to hit, huh?
July 5, 2012
AMAZING! Anyone who says iron blades, or muscles backs, are hard to hit is over-exaggerating. And these MP-69s are incredible. I am a classic mid-80s shooter and I don't ball-strike like Tiger Woods, yet these clubs feel awesome. I have predictable control over shot shape, i.e. fade, draw, and the ball flight is piercing. From punch shots to full swings, the ball's trajectory climbs until it drops to the ground... and sits! I switched from clunky TaylorMade r7 Draws and the change is immensely noticeable. Even on mishits, which I get more often than flush hits, the difference is minimal. The clubs deliver the notorious great feeling associated with blades, but none of the arm-jarring 'stings' on bad shots. Even with mishits, distance loss is negligible. Overall, I would recommend giving these clubs serious consideration if one were entertaining the idea of switching to a smaller club head. And besides, their Mizuno's!
Pros:Looks, feel, consistency, confidence, and sheer pride of hitting blades
Cons:price, but only in relation to other 'discount' irons
