Ok a few days left on the titleist 680's the have rifle 6.5's which is equivelent to x-stiff, I want to get the irons becuase when you catch one feels so good also they look good and all playas use pure blades.

I think im going ot get them.

Anyone else hit them??????

You are makeing it harder then it needs to be. Why make it to where there is no margin for error. I have been told that the sweet spot on a blade is about the size of your pinkie. I dont know about you but my swing isnt that good.

If you look at the tour guys you will see that a lot do not play blades, they play forged clubs. There is a huge difference.

If you like them and are consistant enough to hit them than they are great clubs so go for it.

What do you mean,they don't play blades they play forged clubs? Did you mean to type forgiving clubs instead? You are right if so,very few play the most traditional blades,many play muscles and combos.

Master,whats your handicap? I play scratch golf and use the 690s,it wasn't until i was down to 2 that I gave up a combo set.YOu are certainly making it harder than it needs to be if you are over 4 at least.IMHO

'all players use pure blades'

I assume you meant to say all good players,but I disagree with you anyway.All good players use the clubs that suit their game,simple as that.

take a look at the 690 cb's. I have owned blades (Mizuno MP-33(the most forgiving blade ever), Nike Forged), shovels (Callaway X-16 pros), and musclebacks (the 690's and TM 300 forged), plus a few others. The 690's are fit to me (2* upright), and i get much better results with them than with any other club i've tried, even supposedly more forgiving clubs. So i'd take a look at those, and then when you decide on a set, get them fitted. I thought i could play off the rack clubs, but these play much better for me

Well you can them and try them and if you dont like them you can always get them and sell them and get a new set. But you are probably making it harder cause its a lot harder to hit blades.

OB meant that alot of tour pros will play either a forged cavity (a good potion of the Taylor Made tour staff play the RAC TP Cavity) and others will play "players irons" that may or may not be forged like the CG2 that Toms plays for example.
I think in a lot of cases it depends on the manufacturer that sponsors the pro. For example most of the Nike staff (Woods, Leonard, Cink) are playing Nike's blade, since they don't really make any other players irons, unless you count the pro-combo's.

Cleveland is the opposite. In fact if you check out the Cleveland Tour staff only a few guys are playing their CG1 blades. Vijay of course is, but Toms, Campbell and others are not.

Thats my point,many pros use combos but many amateurs struggle with straight blades
