Anyone had any grass time with MacGregor 1025's?

I've read nothing but good things about them, yet i see hundreds of sets for sale. This can't be a good sign. Or am I reading too much into that?

Might be a good choice to start out my "blade-saga" with. They retailed at nearly 1100 up here, i could pick up a new set on "The 'Bay" for about 250 bones.


Any words would be appreciated.

rock, i personally have not hit these, but my local pro uses them and just loves the hell out of them, i too have heard nothing but good things about them, i still say to go for the TA1's for 349 bucks new, but what would a teenager know about such things,


btw, just got back from a deer hunt, i hit like a 6 point buck, it ran away and we followed a blood trail for about a mile but still could never find it, i'm thinking of calling in the leaf rule to help me out, any thoughts

Gun,

I'm still thinking of going with a forged setup with my irons for next season, like the MacGregors, some V-25s, maybe some Apex's, or Mizuno's. The Clevelands aren't really a true forged club, even though they are advertised as so. I do like their feel, but it's more like a cavity back than a true forged club.

I was out flushing bucks with my brother and his friends once when a nice buck came out to a clearing and sat only about 25 yards from the rifles. A friend's Dad drew his muzzle loader and hauled off, only to blow the one side of the buck's rack clean off. It was hilarious, but moreso that he missed the buck by so much from such a close shot. The story has grown over the years to "It was so close, he could have stabbed it with a bayonet!" :D

Blasphemy! Treachery! Foul mouth!
Your insults on the TA1 are pure sacrilege.
:eek:

No, you do not deserve using Blades. Stay with your wondrous Cavity Back irons.

Hey Loop,

No hard feelings, eh? :thumbup:

But, if Cleveland's were "true forged irons", don't you think they'd be selling it a little more?
Form forging and true forging create the same look, but not the same feel. As much as I don't want to admit that, it's true. Hit a TA7 Tour and then a MP-33. The difference is night and day.

Stupid expensive forging.

So, anyone played MacGregors?....lol. :canada:

R35

PS....no golf religion (Cleveland) is better than another (Mizuno)! :)

You are forgiven on only one condition....
You need to eat 100 shrimps at Red Lobster in one sitting. :p

BTW, TA7 to TA2 are cavity backs. The TA1 is the only forged club, and same feel as the mp33 (which I also demoed).

Interesting. I have never hit a TA1. I guess the CG1's are their new replacement. But that's another bag of tricks.

The TA1's, they come gunmetal, do they not?

And the 100 shrimps is no big deal. I'd do that standing on my head. ;)

Rock,

FWIW I have trialled a 1025M - it was at a Mizuno demo day (Mizuno and Macgregor are sold here through the same licensee). I too had heard great things and in all honesty was not impressed. In fact, I think these were the least forgiving of the blades I trialled - and they had a DGS300 shaft...

Not my cup of tea - I've said it before, but Mizuno MP-33 was the most forgiving blade I demoed.

G,

Thanks for the words. Interesting findings.

I don't think i'm necessarily trying to find the most forgiving blades out there. I am striking the ball pretty well (or, at least I was). I liked the feel of the Mp-33's, they were great.

And, the S300 is my shaft. Love 'em.

Thanks for the quick review. I'm taking everything into advisement over the next little while and every little bit counts!

Of course you know the important thing here is to make up your own, (Mizuno) mind and not let anyone influence you, (Mizuno) with their personal preferences. Just because someone else prefers a particular brand, (Mizuno) doesn't mean, (Mizuno) that it will work for you. :smilie_Mizuno

In the end, you'll be much happier, (Mizuno) choosing the irons that best fit your swing, (Mizuno) and your game. I confident that you'll make the right decision with no imput, (Mizuno) from me. :innocchi

Does anyone have the "Minudo" CD?

I have the hugest cracing to listen to "Minudo" now. :)

This is the first subliminal advertising I have seen in a chat board.

I think....

rock, if you think you are hitting good now, (especially with your huge x-16's) then blades will probably be a real wake up call, not to bring you down or anything, just don't expect to go out and nail every single thing. I tested the TA1 against any blade out there and could tell no difference in feel or forgiveness, the mp-33 was worst in my opinion, the price is so low because

1) Cleveland is just that cool

2) The CG1 came out and retailers want to get the TA1's off their shelves

IMHO,

Anyone who can shoot a 63 (for 18 that is!) can handle a blade.

period.

Rock, do not buy blades. I know one pro woman, who shot 59, and plays with Callaway Big Bertha Irons. :p
