As a 10hc I find the mmb very forgiving. Love the look of the mmb black. If I didn't put a bunch of lead tape on the back of them I'd probably move from the chrome to those.

I may be over blowing this, but when I hear the DBM are soft, I can’t help but think the MMB are harsh. And not, just not as soft.

You are. The MMB are soft (now i havent hit them full bore yet so i cant properly comment but will advise when i do. Its just DBM are one of the softest irons ive hit ever. It litterally feels like a marshmellow. Like old mp33 mizzy feel. The only downside to the dbm was if u can believe it. Theyre too soft. theyre soft across the face. I couldnt always tell where i caught it. The MMB are soft but still provide greater feedback. To me whos sensitive to size and toplines i much prefer the more compact size of the MMB. The DBM has an ever slightly thinner topline but in some of the longer irons 4i 5i u can see the cavity at address kinda. And in the short irons 9i and PW the hosel kinda jutted out behind the club. Made it look big. I did love the constant offset tho.

In all honest u cant go wrong with either. Would you go the TE or DBM. And if u went MMB would u go satin or Black?

If anyone thinks the MMB's are "harsh", it means that for one reason or another...they aren't hitting them solid.  For example, if someone fit really well into the lower sweet-spot of the DBM, then their percentage of good feeling strikes could very well be lower with something else that has a higher COG

oh it’s black all the way.  DBM or MMB black.  Ever since I bought a 7i DBM to test the finish, as i have always loved black irons but always been let down with the finish’s durability, i was sold.


The MMB has a different offset than the DBM?

I’m a high ball hitter and my misses are thin shots.  Does the lower COG or mid COG play better into lowering the flight and help with the thin misses?

The MMBs have a variable offset. Starts at 0.145" in 3i and goes to 0.1 in PW/GW.

Low avcog will help with thin shots but will make u hit it higher on good shots.

2 strikes in same spot the lower thr CG the higher it goes. DBM have constant .1 offset. MMB have progressive offset from .135 in 4i to .09 in PW.

As for heads the downside with the MMB black is u cant order individual clubs or id say buy one. If u wanna be really sure and dont mind spending extra cash u can order a satin MMB to test.

When you groove the MMB-17 you can't even feel the ball hit the club. When you miss the ball they get a bit clicky but it's not horrible. It just let's you know it wasn't perfect.

But the distance on mishits is nullified, I think you said?

They do not punish a mis hit. You can get away with a bad swing like no other blade style iron. I hit the new PTM tonight and I just put up a new thread.

The low AVCOG (sweet-spot) definitely helps a player who has an impact pattern low on the face.  With that in mind, I would not try to use a higher COG to help lower flight for that player, because it will hurt their percentage of solid contact
