I have a set of CB501s with PX 6.0 in them , I had reshafted from X100s

I just purchased a set of MP4s and am waiting on them to come in , they’re brand new used 2-3 rounds total , with Project X 6.5 in them

My 6i is about 95mph

I have come to realization that the CB501 do not seem to be very forgiving , and I have no problem striking them , I had read the MP4 is not excruciatingly unforgiving so I decided to buy without hitting.

Would this be a silly decision to switch from one to the other?

Can anyone chime in with some specific experiences with perhaps these 2 clubs

Well this didn’t get much of a response

But - I received these today and went ball whacking at the range , these are unbelievably high launching / landing , so I gained about 1/2 a club to a full club in carry but kept about same total distance , which is not what I was expecting at all going to an MB & a stiffer version of same shaft

Also really not that unforgiving , big dumb toe shots & thin to win lasers hurt equally as much with my CB501s , but when you nut it , it’s a very addictive feeling

I've never hit the 501s but I have handled them.  I have hit the mp4s a decent amount.  Many people here say the 501s are not very forgiving for a cavity and I feel the mp4s are pretty forgiving blade so your experience makes sense to me.  Personally I think side by side the 501s APPEAR harder to hit as that top line is thinner than most blades. If I had the choice I'd play the mp4s :) Enjoy them!

Yeah I have owned mp4 and hit cb501 handful of times....didnt seem to much in it though since their is a cavity the 501 I am sure is bit easier on slight mishits....couple yrds here and there

Maybe more so in longer irons.....

But no didn't find cb501 to be what I expected it to be
