I finally worked up the courage to try a blade since there was no one else around. I actually felt that it was easier to control the club face over some of the GI irons Iíve been using.

I appreciate any advice. Thank you.

I play off of 13 and i started using blades 4 months ago, best thing i ever did, if you mean controlling shot shape when you say controlling the club face than yes, i wouldnt say they would help you control tbe face itself, thats more down to you or the shaft, what i would say is that the added workability is more obvious with the blade if hitting both gi and blade side by side.

Improved my ball striking immensely, what you lose in distance due the traditional lofts you gain in consistency and dispersion.

Hey looks like a nice fast swing. Good sounding shot too. The swing plane comes ďover the lineĒ at the top like Jon Daly but if you hit nice shots doing it itís not a big deal. If not then getting your swing on a calmer plane could help you improve.
