You took the shiny badges off the MMC’s and dulled the finish on all the irons?

My dad works at a metal casting foundry, asked if he had anything that could change the finish since I like the look of the 900 tours.  He basically sand blasted my 59 as a test.  Liked how it looked so he showed me at his job on the machine then I did the rest myself, gambled and I can say I am pleased with how it all came out.

Did you strip the blue on the VFP iron, or did you paint over the blue? Thinking about refinishing mine! Awesome bag!

He didn't strip the paint first, though you should if you want the cleanest look. Also needs some cleanup, but for 2 minutes of work, it doesn't look too bad. He used my enamel paint that I bought in hopes of doing some filling but I'm too much if a wuss to do it.

Did you tape the face and top of the cavity of the MMC or just blast the whole thing? Asking because I bead blasted my MP-57s and MP-53s and I know some of the older models are prone to rusting if not properly covered. I plan on doing the same to a set of MP-18 SCs in the future. Also, do you recall the grit and pressure that you used?

I literally just took the hose and rotated the head as I blasted it. I can ask him in the morning what the actual specifics are and get back to you.

You are correct. I used to carry a 50* but used it like once every three rounds. Just always felt more comfortable choking down on a pw. I like the lower punch shot with wedges. Rarely I go full bore on them. Ironic you say that because my best friend just asked me about it yesterday.

I am that friend. I told him his gapping is weird in his wedges, but the way he plays it makes total sense. His gapping everywhere else is pretty spot on. He could do like a 4 hybrid since his 2 is like his 235 club and his 4 iron is his 210-215 club, but I dont think that precision is really needed at that length.

I like them so far, fairly new in the bag though. I used Vega wedges all last year basically.  Loved my Vega wedges but they seemed to wear out quick.  I had T5's prior to the Vega and loved those, just saw a good deal on the Vega so jumped on it.  Using the T7 pw, like it a lot more than the stock pw.  Has that boxy look to it which i like, not all round like a shovel like the usual complaint.  You can get them at a really good price too.

Nice set up Matzi.  How are you liking the D3?  

Do you think the Mizuno wedges are too soft compared to say a Vokey?
