I went from game improvement irons to a combo set. When I went through the process of my first fitting I found that the blades gave me more of the results I was looking for. I’m a high ball hitter and iron play is my strength. I found that a little extra forgiveness in the long irons would be really beneficial to my game. I ended up going with Titleist 716 irons. P-8 MB, 7-6 CB and 4-5 TMB. As of late I’m thinking of switching the 5 iron to a cb because the tmb in that club is giving me some spotty performance. In my opinion a combo set can’t be beat. We’re not professionals, having options and flexibility in your set can only help.

With all due respect, I don' see how a combo set represents options and flexibility. I see it as a choice that has limitations, just like a full set of blades or CBs does. Unless, of course, your definition of a combo set factors carrying/owning two versions of each iron.
Hmm. . . yea good points. Im not a pro, but I aspire to improve and im shooting really low since back from injury. so combo could prove a limitation (less shot shaping in long irons. However, all heresay till i hit a long iron blade next to my p770.
Ill probably buy a full set (used so no worries on devalue), and combo them if I find myself struggling with the blade long irons. I shouldn't but u never know.
great responses everyone thanks. . .
im thinking ill go in this order just based on aesthetics/recommendations.
1. p730 (but only have a line on a set without a 4 iron right now. Would love 4-pw)
2. mp4 (very hard to find)
3.any other high end, punishing (lol) blade for a good price (luck of the draw here, no guarantees. T MB's, callaway apex, baby blades, etc)
4. mp5/z965 (I worry they will not be the full blade experience, but the poster that recommended chooses them over mp4's for competition so must be pretty solid)
5.Combo set (in the event I turn into a duffer when i touch the long iron blades. Pretty unlikely, was hitting them fine before injury been a couple years, but its like riding a bike right?
