I am looking to pick up an older iron set for a travel set and for experimentation.  

Looking at
Miura CB1005
Tourstage MR23
Yonex Forged CB

Anyone have experience with these?

I am leaning towards the Miura or Yonex right now. But I only have pictures to base my decision.

I would like your opinion or experience on these older forgings.

Thanks

I've played all and recently got back a set of the Mr23 cb.  Go for that.  Not the softest but still all very good.

All my custom grind Scratch and even my most recent set of BBFCo irons have the toe shape copied from my set of MR23s.

My friend has a set of them that Don White removed all the offset from, might be one of the best looking sets I've ever seen and that's saying a lot.....

We really do have the same tastes don't we? I feel like you and I could be brothers!

The MR23 US Spec was probably what drove me to JDM and Miura.

I played a buddy's set of MR23 back in college for one round. Man, what a set, 2 Iron and all, and that's when I could still hit a 2 Iron! They were fun!

Ha!  Yes we do seem to agree completely on equipment!
I got my first set of MR23 when I was in college I'll never forget that phone call from Joe Kwok while filling up my car at the Mobile in Big Rapids, MI.  "Hey Ari I have a set of irons you need to check out........"

Changed my life from a golf equipment standpoint.

PS the Star is as good as ever!

PPS glad to hear it and not surprised that is a fantastic head!
