Anyone have any thoughts on the legacy blacks compared to the 2018 x forged?

I have taken in my Legacy Black 6 iron along with a 2013 X forged 6 iron and had a hit off against the 18 x forged.

Very similar results, but i did think the LB's felt better.  One of the workers tried  all three irons as well and said  the LB 6 iron was   the best feeling iron in the store.

My LB's are shafted with i95 steelfibers so that might affect the feel, so take that into consideration.

I did try the 18 x forged 7 iron when they first came out and was damn impressed, i had them on the counter ready to pay for them but changed my mind at the last moment. Didn't think the feel was that much different from my Furyk x-forged and LB's  to warrant the $$1500 Canadian plus 13% tax. Ouch.  

I'm sure a used set will pop up sometime.

I had just got the 2013 forged 6 iron and had hit it a few times on its own on a previous visit, i was wishing i had kept the set of 13's i had a few years back. They were the Callaway reps personal set, ordered  with aldila pro to by you 100x shafts, sweet set. Sold them like an idiot, i still have the shafts. 2013's are cheap at the moment might have to pick up a set of heads.

I like having multiple iron sets so having a set to go along with the Stenson's would be ideal. But selling the Stenson's to get the 18's would be a no go for me.

Best of luck in your search.
